47 Things I Know to be True

I don't know everything. 
In fact, a lot of the time I feel like I know absolutely nothing and am drowning in self doubt and panic. However - there are certain things in life that I know to be absolutely true. Things that are frighteningly easy to forget sometimes and fulfilling to remember.

  3. Pick your battles
  4. You generally have to suck at something for a while before you get really good. Be patient. And practice.
