There were several different versions of a meme I remember from my Facebook days, that always said something similar along the lines of:
‘The fact that there’s only a stairway to heaven but a highway to hell says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers’.
I’ve no idea from where it originated, but it always made me smile… 🙂

‘In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes’ – Andy Warhol
I don’t think I’d like to be famous, not even for five minutes let alone fifteen. I already worry too much as it is about what people think of me – family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, customers. I can’t imagine anything worse than having the whole world being critical of me en masse, I think I’d either go stark staring mad or become a total recluse.
It seems to me there’s a refreshing freedom in actively encouraging a quiet, private sort of non-famous lifestyle where you just get on with your own everyday stuff in your own unique way and no-one pays you a blind bit of notice 🙂

‘Creativity requires courage’ – Henri Matisse
It’s all too easy to stick confidently to what we know, always playing it safe, ensuring we never risk failure by never trying anything new in the first place. It’s never easy to feel vulnerable and uncertain about how to do something new, especially as we get older and already know how to do so much in life, but it’s often oh-so-worth it to learn to be curious, be creative, be courageous all over again ❤ 🙂
