I was perusing my old journal entries this morning, found this:
it doesn't matter if I do or don't I decided long ago that "talent" is overrated. What matters is making good work.
trust my intuition - I'm realizing for the first time that while I can doubt myself a lot (doubt is healthy), there is something in me that knows what to do next. It's ok to trust my gut feelings.
Sounds pretty levelheaded to me. I need to remind myself of these things sometimes.
