This is Your Journey

Your path to discover, your story to tell.

Grow at your pace. Compare not with others. Not even with yourself for what you know — and are — is always changing.

Be content with being. Because that’s your nature — human BEING.

‘You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here.’ — Max Ehrmann

It is true that your journey would be layered with unfairness. But it is also true that where it feels worse for you, it feels better for another.

Where you lose, another person wins. Where you cry, another person smiles.

So, if you never look at the other, and pace yourself on what matters to you, and for you, it becomes easier to breathe and lead.

You then see that everything happens for you, and everyone is on the same journey. We all don’t know much and we are all learning daily about who we are and why we’re here.

No one is truly right. And no one is truly wrong.

Grow at your pace, take it all with empathy. Come with compassion and breathe life into your works.

Know where you come from. Know where you go from here.

Remember to be.

‘If you compare yourself with others you may become vain and bitter, for there will always be greater and lesser persons than yourself’ — Max Ehrmann
