I realized that the coolest thing about Dana Scully, is not that she’s all powerful or always in control but that 9 times out of 10, she gets her ass kicked. But she never stops. She never throws in the towel. She keeps going.
And this is how life is. A lot of the time, you get your ass kicked: in your job or school, in relationships, by your own mind or your own body. And as much as we’d like to be prepared, to be totally in control in the moment, being able to say or do the exact right thing, at the exact right time — we never do. And thats okay. Because being a hero isn’t about being perfect, it’s about being imperfect, vulnerable, weak and still refusing to give up.
So I made these crappy little collages in Pages to remind me. To inspire me. And hopefully in any of you out there need these, they’ll do the same for you. Because it’s hard out there, for all of us.
Be like Scully.
