Good advice

I had a brilliant piece of advice yesterday, and it gave me a sense of calm and comfort.

A ship is safest in harbour
but that’s not what it is designed for
you are free on the open seas

The first bit of the quote is more or less attributed to Grace Hopper, a real admiral who also (apparently) coined the term bug for things going wrong with computers.

My workmate sent this to me, with the little addition of his own on the end.

Don’t be afraid, don’t hide who you are. You should not be afraid to care, to show people who you are. Or to be vulnerable… although that can be the most frightening thing in the world.

Be brave and open, do what you want to do…what you dream of doing.
