The ability to author your life the way you want it is the damn foundation of badass.
When you say “Hey, I want that shit” and you go for it, that’s badass.
Living out the values you value is badass.
Liking what you like. No shame, no guilt. That’s badass.
Fear, doubt, insecurity ain’t badass.
When you look back, you’ll see the whole process of being an author is pretty badass too. Enjoy that shit.
