We should never feel lesser than we are, never feel more accretion than we deem deserving.
Not someone we’re meant to be, but someone we choose to be.
What is in us, within us, is who we are.
Not to be regretted, but celebrated. We were born perfect babies. While we’ve grown and changed on the outside, we all remain perfect on the inside – every part in its place – one heart, one mind, and two of nearly everything else.
We worry too much.
We worry not enough.
Well, which is it?
Suppose we’re agonizing concerning today or tomorrow. In that case, we’re likely owed a lecture about ‘not sweating the small stuff’ since whatsoever can be solved that swiftly likely isn’t big-picture material.
At the opposite end of this dimension, we might be fretting about world peace or averting inter-galactic conflicts, but by then, we’d be authoring sci-fi novels …
Between these extremities of mirages lies our reality, our humanity – defined differently for all of us – for each of us, by some sense of values and purpose that found their way into us and cannot find their way out again.
What is in me pleases me sometimes, embarrasses me sometimes, and makes me feel small rather than tall – in fear or inferior sometimes, but when it’s all gathered together and attached to my spine, I feel fine again. There is pride inside, but too often the stubborn kind, and confidence in knowing well what I know well, and wanting to know better what I care about but don’t understand; understand?
Sometimes we reach out for something or for someone, and there is no one there – or when we do, they were looking some other way, looking for something else somewhere else.
There is only one person in charge of happy – each of us for our happenstance. While it is gratifying to have someone’s shoulder to depend on or hand to hold, we can only dig ourselves out of our own hole; only we can climb our mountain or craft our fantasy into being.
Talented people write hit songs, make hit movies, or write blockbuster novels. The rest of us rarely achieve that brand of success but can be our brand of happy creating and doing all for an audience of one. If we’ve not found ‘that right one’ just yet, we’ll have to be satisfied with our own company, our own achievements, and spare others from our shortcomings.
Thank you for this! It is so so true.No you don't know me but I've been receiving your daily write ups on my inbox and this one in particular for some reason resonated quite a bit for me - don't know why but I just thought it is so very true and made so much sense. Thank you for your articles - you just never know how much of a positive impact you make in people's lives. God bless you, CC, ?
