No man who is occupied in doing a very difficult thing, and doing it very well, ever loses his self-respect. George Bernard Shaw.
I went to see an exhibition about how important is failing in our lives but it is more about keep trying and do not being worried about succeed all the time or being lovable losers in the process.
It seems like we first need to be comfortable with ourselves in order to go ahead, as the cat in Alice in Wonderland said:
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
― Lewis Carroll,
So as any journey is personal, the idea of smiling and getting surrounded by nice people following your inner feelings sound like a simple step to start then we will see 😉
