I wasn’t going to post anything about Carrie Fisher‘s death because -plainly said- it sucks, and I didn’t know how else to put it. But as I was browsing Twitter, I found the top pic with that quote.
One of the best advices I got when starting my job a year and a half ago was to put myself in danger everyday, to do something that scares me and challenges me to keep learning (and I’ve never been more scared than during those first weeks at the job, so it was an easy task to do). Fear is the mind-killer, and it ends up leading to the Dark Side. Fear is not worth us being afraid. We conquer it when we acknowledge it but act anyway. And this quote seems a good way to Carrie Fisher by.
RIP, your Highness. And may the Force be with you.
Life advice from Supergirl.
You’re standing on the shore, afraid to dive into the new waters. And you’re afraid because you don’t want to say goodbye to the mild-mannered, love-loaned Kara Danvers, the sweet and beautiful assistant to Cat Grant. You’re standing there looking at your options: the icy blue water, the fast flowing river and choppy sea, and all look very appealing to you because you’re dying to go for a swim. But you know the water is going to be cold and the journey is going to be hard, and when you reach the other side you will have become a new person, and you’re scared to meet that new version of yourself. Now, we all get used to our own personas and are used to our own comfort zones, but trust me, in order to live, we must keep daring, keep diving.
