my boyfriend and i watched the woody allen documentary on netflix…wow. he is just so fascinating! one thing that really spoke to me was his go-go-go attitude. once he got started doing what he loved as a teenager, he just never stopped. he would finish a movie, and already be on to the next one. he didn’t care what people said about his movies, or whether they were huge hits…he made them because he believed in the stories. it gets me a little teary eyed when i think about it, because i feel so fortunate to be doing what i care so much about. i really admire this guy.
there was a quote he said in the movie that i immediately wrote down. “the only thing standing between greatness and me…is me. so there’s really no excuse.” it’s so true. just think about what you want, and go get it. people have been saying it for years and it’s still as powerful as ever.
