You’re Still Young

I’ve always loved the black and white image of the old lady on a ladder, painting graffiti. People often send me the link to articles about the lady who’s over 100 and is “still” yarnbombing. It’s great, I love those stories. I hope to be doing this stuff when I’m that old, too. I hope I have the privilege to be that old. But I’m still young. I have so many canvases ahead of me, so many mistakes to be made, so much art to create.

I wanted to remind you (and myself) that you’re young as long as you’re alive. As long as you have today you have opportunity. So go do the thing. Don’t procrastinate. Don’t wait to get old. Have faith in yourself and believe you CAN succeed. Don’t let fear of failure, age, or whatever else hold you back. Paint the town glitter.
