“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.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”—Neil Gaiman (via quotewhore)
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”—Neil Gaiman (via fuckyeahhappy)
“Ladies, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Each in your own way. Love yourselves. Remember, no one can love you if you don’t even love yourself. No one is perfect and it’s pretty much going to stay that way. As long as you are content with yourself, that’s all that matters. Be who you are. Don’t let them filter your creativity. Don’t hate yourself because they want you to or say you should. LOVE yourself. You ARE beautiful.”
