Words I Wish I had Written {by zefrank1}

"Let me not be so vain to think I am the sole author
 of my victories and a victim of my defeats.  

Let me remember that the unintended meaning 
that people project onto what I do is neither
 my fault nor something I can take credit for.  

Perfectionism may look good in his shiny shoes 
but he's a little bit of an a**hole  and no-one
 invites him to their pool parties. 

 Let me remember that the impact of criticism is often 
not the intent of the critic but when the intent is evil 
that's what the block button's for. 

 And when I eat my critique let me separate out the 
good advice from the bitter herbs. 

 Let me not think of my work only as a stepping stone 
to something else, and, if it is, let me become fascinated 
with the shape of the stone.

Let me take the idea 
that has gotten me this far and put it to bed. 
What I'm about to do will not be that, but it will be something.

There's no need for me to sharpen my pencils any more.
  My pencils are sharp enough.  
Even the dull ones will make a mark.

Warts and all.
  Let's start this sh*t up. 
And God let me enjoy this.
Life isn't just a sequence of waiting for things to be done."
