I’m taking a break from the heat of the midday sun. I’ve been thinking better thoughts (taking my own advice), and it feels good. My relationship with my parents is much better, which ultimately has to do with my relationship with myself.
Working on cars is essentially art. It’s more similar than I’d realized, and I resisted what I thought of as my fate, but maybe it’s more like my destiny. In any case, I’m interested in what I’m doing, and that’s the main thing.
The things I’ve written about; who I am, who I want to be, seemed exciting, but also far away. Now, I’m embodying the person I wanted to be, but of course, I’m also imagining myself as even more. Life is a series of catching up to who you can be, and also appreciating who you’ve become.
