I don’t like the feeling that I can’t change where I’m at. 

Either your outrunning something or trying to keep up with something.  

Our culture is very programmed to avoid uncertainty. 

If you’re convicted from a really true place, you can’t get let fear get you. 

It’s a very vulnerable thing to live life on your own terms. 

Write the things you want to read. Not what you think people want to read.
