“All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.”

— Jorge Luis Borges

I saw this quote in a newsletter from Jenny Blake, a wonderfully inspirational woman I met at last year’s 20SB Summit. As I start this week — a bit late and already behind on some things that need to get done — I’m trying to remind myself that every misstep is just an excuse to leave the well-traveled road and find a better way back to where I’m supposed to be.
