The Gap by Ira Glass -- And Why I Can't Doubt Myself

Currently? I am resurfacing --feeling my way through the night and finding my grip. I am hiding, or perhaps knocked off my feet, waiting for the sun to rise, and I know it will. When it does, I will surprise myself and take a breath because I am waiting at the edge of something beautiful. This is a growing season -- a learning season. I take it all in, along with the insecurities and the doubts, and I am ready to create. So far, this year is exhausting because I am desperately trying to cling to what I know and expand those walls a little more. Learning something can be both exciting and disheartening, especially if you are relentless at making what you are learning your identity. I'm trying to find the boundaries here. I'm ready to hold my ground and take in this view, because I have climbed and fallen. It's time to trudge on, to move forward. In need of inspiration, these words from Ira Glass found me at the perfect time. I hope they encourage you as well.

Happy Monday. xo


  1. Are there any particular creative projects you're angling to get done, Mollie? (Or do you mind if I ask?)

  2. Josh - always. :) Haha. But really, I guess you could call it a creative project, but it's really more of an entrepreneurial/freelancing goal (one that requires a lot of confidence and creativity). I am taking some editing courses and trying to learn everything there is to know about book editing. It's mostly ideas swimming around in my head at this point.

  3. Happy to know it: May need someone with your particular vision, some day down the road...

    1. So cool!! I want to hear about your creative ventures. :)
