Sometimes you read just the right book at just the right time and you're reminded of some truths you needed to hear. I recently read Lauren Graham's new book, Talking As Fast As I Can. I love books of personal essays like this because I find it so encouraging and inspiring to read about the early stages of accomplished figures striving to live their dreams. It's comforting to remember that every person chasing a dream must endure the trials and tribulations that come along with it. It's going to be tough, that's the truth - but that probably means it'll also be worth it. Every dream has its own timeline and it's not always going to line up with the one in your head - the important part is learning to appreciate the journey, trust the process, & keep going, keep going, keep going.
