Forward-thinking is promoted by maintaining a way of thought uncorrupted by trivialities and misdirections. It thusly dictates a way of living, and is a state of mind one should be cognizant of and desire to achieve. I found the quote below to be very insightful and relevant, so I thought I’d share.
“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.” – Eve Ensler
