Song of the day
To be true to ourselves we have to know ourselves. To know ourselves we have to examine ourselves. Introspection of our own souls is the rarest action humans take. In general people do not like themselves or trust themselves deeply enough. The answers may put us at odds with an in group. Conformity prevents friction, but stifles relationship building. This is why we love stories of those who have discovered themselves. Whether they end in victory or defeat. Tragedy or triumph. Accomplishment or failure. It matters little. The wonderous moment was when they displayed the courage to begin. We are forever in awe of those brave enough to voyage within.
Happy Giving Tuesday everyone.
“You have to have a habitual vision of greatness … you have to believe in fact that you will refuse to settle for mediocrity. You won’t confuse your financial security with your personal integrity, you won’t confuse your success with your greatness or your prosperity with your magnanimity … believe in fact that living is connected to giving.”
— Cornel West
