A beginner. Always. / by Simeon Smith

Buddists know their shit when it comes to mindset.

One thing I’m learning from Zen Buddism is Shoshin, or beginner’s mind.

I want to be open to learn, to unlearn, to relearn.

I want to eagerly jump into projects I have no idea how to complete.

I want to throw out my preconceptions and marvel at this ugly, lovely world.

I want to sell my cleverness and buy bewilderment.

I want to grab creativity by the hand and run together without knowing where we’re going.

I want my eyes wide.

I want a purposeful naivety that knowingly ignores doubt.

I want to begin anew, again, every day.
