We Are Not Who We Were

A Small Dose of Inspiration

We are not who we were, but who we are becoming. Our past is just that…history. They were moments in our lives of lessons learned and a chance to become better versions of ourselves. Every day we wake up is a new opportunity to try again, breathe again, and live in gratitude. We are not our mistakes. We are an infinite swarm of peaks and valleys with one foot grounded and the other delicately swaying back and forth..to and fro. Our emotions ebb and flow like an ocean with its low and high tides. Our imagination carries us to distant places where we find solitude and peace within. Peace within is the true destination. A place where sometimes the road is linear and other times the path is a whirlwind. Yet, in the end we come full circle to who we truly are–mortal creatures yearning for love and acceptance..from others, but more so from our own selves.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
