Today marks the one-year anniversary of Still Mind

And I’m not sure what to say. Part of me is undoubtedly proud of the people we’ve reached and the message we’ve spread and the artists who’ve said “me too.” Another is grasping for what’s next. The goal has always been to maintain our growth organically, embodying the journey as the destination. But I’m still a human, caught up in the trappings of our Insta-fame fueled, venture capital-worshipping society. Good enough is never good for a starving ego. At times I wonder for the sake of the message, can Still Mind be a household name?

Then I remember, it’s not about that. It’s about all of us collectively. Whether it’s a community of 10 or 10,000 or 100 million, each individual is receiving and contributing something unique here. Even if it’s just a “me too” or “I feel you."

So we continue. We will continue serving each other through our personal essays and artistic inspiration, one post at a time, always remembering to breathe along the way. 

Thank you for joining us.
