I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Can I just give big hugs to Sam, Tammy, Liz, Camren, Anna, Erika, Annie, Kyle, Nikhil, Rohit, Katya, and Leigh? You know, it’s lonely not really knowin’ anyone here, but how lonely can I really be with all these people to love?
