Jen Gotch is the boss behind Ban.Do, a company that I own too many sipsip tumblers from, but she said these words and I saw them quoted in my Instagram feed while sitting in an airport terminal in between flights for a work trip. I scribbled them out in one of my sketchbooks during the layover, and it's the last thing I've written in it since. What Jen said has stuck with me since because the truth of these words is liberating, and knowing that you have the freedom to fail or succeed doing something you're passionate about feels like everything even when you have nothing but a head full of dreams and on open page of imperfect lettering. I love seeing people get to do what they love because I so very badly want that for myself. And it's nice to see living proof that what you want is possible. So, note to self (and maybe you too): If you're trying, keep trying. And then make it happen.
