Maria Popova: "Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind. Cultivate that capacity for “negative capability.” We live in a culture where one of the greatest social disgraces is not having an opinion, so we often form our “opinions” based on superficial impressions or the borrowed ideas of others, without investing the time and thought that cultivating true conviction necessitates.

We then go around asserting these donned opinions and clinging to them as anchors to our own reality. It’s enormously disorienting to simply say, “I don’t know.” But it’s infinitely more rewarding to understand than to be right — even if that means changing your mind about a topic, an ideology, or, above all, yourself."

If you have high school age kids I am begging you to consider urging them to have a gap year before college. Show them all the trade schools that are available and how much money they could make before their friends even graduate with their BA in Theatre (unfortunately like me). College is great but I have TWO degrees and I am working in a job that requires neither degree and I’m making peanuts. Also, the military is a great way to become independent and see the world. They do not have to be a Navy Seal and constantly deploy down range to enjoy the benefits. And some jobs are civilian applicable. Mike Rowe has a quote:
