the week my dad died-

The phase you’re entering may prove to be ridiculously confounding–ridiculous both in the sense of absurdly extreme and very funny. Yet the immediate future also promises to provide you with unprecedented opportunities to outgrow limitations you may have imagined were permanent. To honor this synergistic blend of slapstick confusion and juicy potential, I’m offering you two pieces of advice. The first is from Eleanor Roosevelt: “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” The second is from Edward Teller: “When you get to the end of all the light you know and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.”
