"Beautiful things grow out of shit. Nobody ever believes that. Everyone thinks that Beethoven had his string quartets completely in his head—they somehow appeared there and formed in his head—and all he had to do was write them down and they would be manifest to the world.
But what I think is so interesting, and would really be a lesson that everybody should learn, is that things come out of nothing. Things evolve out of nothing. You know, the tiniest seed in the right situation turns into the most beautiful forest. And then the most promising seed in the wrong situation turns into nothing.
I think this would be important for people to understand, because it gives people confidence in their own lives to know that’s how things work. If you walk around with the idea that there are some people who are so gifted—they have these wonderful things in their head and you’re not one of them, you’re just sort of a normal person, you could never do anything like that—then you live a different kind of life. You could have another kind of life where you could say, well, I know that things come from nothing very much, start from unpromising beginnings, and I’m an unpromising beginning, and I could start something." —Brian Eno, Here Is What Is #todaysmantra
So many colours and so many emotions!
I remember how i used to play holi when i was kid. For days we had our face tinted with faded colours of holi. Used to wake up with moustache and beard of colours made by my maa, her way of starting the celebration of holi. I and my siblings used to help in making mouth watering gujiya, laddu, chakri and what not! We actually made it harder to make it though, since we ate more than helped. Every thing delicious when is served in home, makes the day unforgettable and lovable! The whole residential area is left colourful! Marking the traces of how and where we played holi. I remember the good times when everyone get together and celebrate HOLI till RangPanchami ❤️😄
A good reminder that it's ok to not have your shit together all the time. Yesterday I had a complete melt down I was crying I felt anxious and everything just seemed too much. I've not felt that way in a very long time but it's important to know that it is absolutely ok to feel these things and we're definitely not alone when we do.
