“Two monks were on a pilgrimage. One day, they came to a deep river. At the edge of the river, a young woman sat weeping because she was afraid to cross the river without help. She begged the two monks to help her. The younger monk turned his back. The members of their order were forbidden to touch a woman.
But the older monk picked up the woman without a word and carried her across the river. He put her down on the far side and continued his journey. The younger monk came after him, scolding him and berating him for breaking his vows. He went on this way for a long time.
Finally, at the end of the day the older monk turned to the younger one. “I only carried her across the river. You have been carrying her all day.”

I’m glad I found this to ad to my list, I think we can all relate to this. I’m 26 turning 27 in July and have been struggling in my art career and was considering giving up, but this past year I’ve let go of the past and thankful for it honestly, it’s made me who I am, and I’m ready to embrace the unfamiliar and let go of the past. I recently shot a music video with a Grammy artist, it was a small video but still it’s inspired me to move out west after grad school and embrace the unknown =) 4 months ago
