“To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.” -Socrates
It’s not about having everything be the way you want it to be; it’s about having a chance to change the way things are.
It’s not abut how many people care about you; it’s about listening to the people who tell you the truths you don’t want to hear.
It’s not about being the most beautiful, desirable woman in the room; it’s about seeing beauty in everyone and desiring only to be yourself.
It’s not about making the most money or having the most toys; it’s about what you do with that money and with whom you share your toys.
It’s not about how many lovers you’ve had or hearts you’ve broken; it’s about learning to love truly, deeply and with tenderness for the heart you are holding.
It’s not about being the best, the brightest or the most admired; it’s about finding the best in your fellow human and telling them so.
It’s not about being the most powerful or the strongest; it’s about using your strength to help those who are beaten down, weakened and oppressed.
It’s not about shouting boastfully to be heard; it’s about saying nothing and letting your actions shout your truth so loudly that the deaf can feel it, the blind can see it and those who doubt shall be freed from that burden and given the lightness that only righteous truth can bestow.
It’s not about proving a point; is about keeping your mind open.
It’s not about what you say; it’s about how you say it.
It’s not about the end of the life; it’s about the journey that came before it.
