One Cool Dude

Today's Quote from A Fancy Word for Simple:

Continue to expose yourself to new ideas. Trust your instincts and think for yourself. Make art, or at least value it.

-Samuel L. Jackson

I like Samuel L. Jackson. He's a cool dude. He's a very multi-faceted kind of guy, and I respect that. I totally agree with those quote. I love being exposed to new things! It helps me reshape my views of the world, bit by bit ... even if it's only to confirm what I'd already suspected or previously experienced. And as for thinking for myself, I got no problem in that department. I like hearing other people's takes on things, but when it comes down to it, it's my life & I've got to live with my own decisions, know what I mean? And art ... I'd like to think I make art. I know I make creative items that are meaningful to me -- and that's sufficient as far as I am concerned!

That is a great quote and I like Samuel L. Jackson, too. I think that I have been exposed to many things and I agree that I like to take them all in, but sometimes seeing something new only confirms that I am quite happy with how my life is.
I, however, could have been quite content in my life to never have met a certain................hamster.

It's taken me a whole lot of 24 hours to come to have the scruples to make 'right' and 'healthy' choices. I'm not so certain I've 'arrived' STILL....but I know I'm a heck of a lot closer than I've ever been, eh?
*sigh* And more practice, no doubt! LOL
