"olé to you"

"...if you never happened to believe in the first place that the most extraordinary aspects of your being were not from you, but maybe if you just happened to believe that they are on loan to you from some unimaginable source for some exquisite portion of your life to be passed along when you're finished to somebody else. If we think about it this way it starts to change everything."

 

A magnificent talk that one of my favorite Mentor-Big-Sisters shared with me. I've always loved how Elizabeth Gilbert speaks. The point she makes here calls for us to be humble and open in our creativity, freeing us in the consideration that there may be something bigger than us at the source of our creativity, and validating us for the hard work we do to allow that spirit to arise.
