Animals are incredibly healing. I already knew this but I am learning it again.

Human connection is incredibly healing. Human contact is as important as food or water. I already knew this but I am learning it again. I am not as good at human connection as I thought I was. But I can learn to be better.

I am not as good at or brave about being vulnerable as I thought I was but I can learn to be.

I am braver in my work as an artist than in real life. I can work on both.
