“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” – Andy Warhol
The actual time on a clock is constantly changing, but really it’s all the same. We, as humans, are the ones who have to make each hour, minute, and second different and distinguishable from the rest.
“Once the water is deep enough that you must swim to stay afloat, does it really matter how deep the pool is?” – Seth Godin
After you commit to something, no matter how difficult it gets, you can’t pull back, otherwise you’ll find yourself sinking to the bottom of the pool… unless you’re handed a life vest.
“To say something nice about yourself, this is the hardest thing in the world for people to do. They’d rather take their clothes off.” – Nancy Friday
To an extent I agree with this quote. In my opinion, saying something nice about ourselves is one of the hardest things to do, but not the hardest thing to do. It’s usually easier to let others say something nice about ourselves, as they notice our characteristics, good or bad, from an outside perspective.
Also, the setting in which we would be required to take our clothes off would have to have significant consideration. Would it be in our own home? Perfectly manageable. At someone else’s home? I’ve learned my lesson. In public? Highly unlikely for most.
Personally, I’d rather say something nice about myself before taking my clothes off (sarcasm).
