i went to the garden of love,
and saw what i never had seen:
a chapel was built in the midst,
where i used to play on the green.

and the gates of this chapel were shut,
and thou shalt not. writ over the door;
so i turn'd to the garden of love,
that so many sweet flowers bore.

and i saw it was filled with graves,
and tomb-stones where flowers should be:
and priests in black gowns, were walking their rounds,
and binding with briars, my joys & desires.

- the garden of love

brooke shaden

1. choose carefully those who surround you.
2. being a good person is the best life and business advice, consistently.
3. organization and respect are essential for business.
4. sharing your authentic voice sets you apart.
5. age is irrelevant.
6. ask for help when you need it.
7. never put deadlines on your dreams.
8. seek to set yourself outside of the center of your universe.
9. create as honestly, unapologetically, and powerfully as you can.
10. find humility in your mistakes and pride in your successes.
11. smile when you’re crying.
12. jump in every cold body of water you see.
13. you don’t have to be naturally good at something to master it.
14. see small wins as massive successes.
15. never treat anyone like they are less important than someone else.
16. you are never only one thing.
17. feed your inspiration or it will die.
18. all of the things you wanted to do will fall away unless you actively pursue them.
19. when you hug people, hug them so genuinely that you pass your joy to them.
20. it doesn’t matter how great or weak you think you are, we are all equals.
21. we all have a gift to give.
22. the more you go your own way, the more you’ll inspire others to do the same.
23. if you believe in something, speak your truth.
24. never put yourself above learning new things.
25. stop glorifying being busy, it is not attractive.
26. if something is important to someone else, it is important.
27. you can never fully know someone else’s situation, so act with compassion.
28. if someone doesn’t like what you create, create more of it and know that your tribe is out there.
29. just because you aren’t good at some things doesn’t mean you’ll never be good at anything.
30. begin, or begin again.
