The excellent Toby Morris piece below calmed me down the other day.
It’s much more resonant than a “Keep calm and [INSERT EXHORTATION]” meme or what-have-you.
Finding the balance between knowing one’s limits and pushing beyond them is an ongoing challenge.
Yes, on occasion I have rued the consequences of an “How hard can it be?”-inspired adventure.
But however they end, when the smoke clears and I’m either still standing or not in handcuffs (or better, both), I’ve at least learnt something new about the world, my craft or myself.
Some of my limits are just because. Others are there to be extended.
