Freedom is not given to us by anyone
we have to cultivate it ourselves.
It is a daily practice.
Thich Nhat Hanh
If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing that you are the author.
You have to be vigilant about keeping your own fire alive.
Sometimes, very quietly and graciously, you can inspire other people by showing them that there’s a different way and many perceptions of beauty. You may not be feeling it inside, but if you display it like you mean it, then it can give permission to be kind to ourselves and embrace our individuality.
When you move your focus from competition to contribution life becomes a celebration. Never try to defeat people, just win their hearts.
