Just keep moving forward and don’t give a shit about what anybody thinks. Do what you have to do, for you. ~Johnny Depp~
I was going to write a post on how it’s ok to be afraid of something big and scary like taking a multi-year RTW trip as long as the fear isn’t what stops you from doing it.
I was going to quote the incomparable Frank Herbert from his Dune series books/movies and tell you that “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
I was going to do all this and convince myself that I am such a cool nerd, because really, who else quotes Frank Herbert?
And then I read some old posts of Lucie on the Lam and realized that she has written the exact same post with the exact same quote. I bow to you Lucie, queen of the cool nerd girls.
So then I found this other quote and I thought “That’ll do pig, that’ll do” (see what I did there? Babe, anyone?). This quote from the mysterious, dark, and oh so charming Johnny Depp is also extremely relevant to how I’m feeling and I’m going to try to feel this way more often.
