in frantic search of inspiration through these bleak and frigid days before spring (hopefully) emerges, i turned to one of my favorite writers, e.e. cummings.
i love this quote because it works well on so many levels.
in fitness, muscles must be broken down before they can become stronger.
with food, you must rid your body of toxins before you can fuel it properly with nutrients.
in art. it is impossible to create something truly unique without voiding your mind of preconceived notions and beliefs.
the benefit of experiencing life means we take pieces of prior events and opinions to put toward improving what comes next, but it must be done with a clean and open mind or we lose something.
