  1. This quote means so much to me that I have it on my desktop, and I shared it on my blog last week after a string of small blogging “victories”. It’s a good one. Happy weekend, Victoria! I’ll see you at West Elm tomorrow, I’ll be the disheveled one with two beautiful kids in tow because daddy’s out of town. :)

  2. This is so inspiring, especially where I am in my new venture as a blogger and re-establishing a design career after having a kid. Thank you for sharing.
    I love Ira too. LIstening to him puts tears in my eyes sometime. I’ll definitely be re-blogging this and linking you.

  3. Ditto to what everyone else said…. so much anxiety covers me from head to today somedays because of this very topic. : / I really don’t like doubting my designer self worth. I am going to repost and link you too. :) Hope your weekend is wonderful.

  4. FAVOURITE. QUOTE/PASSAGE. OF. ALL. TIME. ‘Fight your way through it’ that is definitely true, there are so many obstacles that come with the creative life but gosh it’s a comfort to know that your not alone in the world!! :)

  5. Love this! It is not a coincidence so many artists are relating to his message right at this given time! Artists are the story-tellers of the world yet we are often doing it alone cuz “nobody tells people who are beginners”. He reminds me of Alan Watts who I loved listening to as a teenager.

  6. A couple weeks ago, I was having a really hard week and one of my friends shared that Ira Glass talk; it changed my whole dynamic and was so encouraging.

  10. Ahhh, finally I don’t feel like a scmuck! Thank you for posting this, it really lifted me today. I’m trying to start a new awesome food revolution, but it’s not awesome yet. But this has made me realise that I just need to keep pumelling forward. And, some day it might be awesome :)
