I used to think that “fake it until you make it” was bullshit.

I was wrong.

Now I see it as “Do the things the person you want to be would do.”

That’s the only way to get there. Because the person I am doesn’t do those things.

Now, I don’t advise spending rent money on bottle service, because that’s just dumb.

I mean if you want to be the person who gets up at 5am and runs around the lake everyday or shows up to a meetup not knowing a single person or publishes a story that she’s terrified for people to read — do those things.

The only way to change who you are is to change what you do.
