Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

"Both of my parents were very successful. So I was taught a lot about success growing up, but I wasn’t taught a lot about happiness. For example, I realized recently that I don’t have any photographs with my friends from college." "Are you saying you didn’t have any moments in college worth photographing?""No, there were plenty of moments. But I never felt the need to capture them. I was so busy trying to be the best, I never really paused to appreciate what I had."
