Your job application, your book proposal,

get rejected sometimes - perhaps often.

behind you in the supermarket checkout line
is occasionally going to think that you are doing it all wrong.
Don't take it personally.

And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
- William Butler Yeats

and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown,
