I feel this way about the Truth.  Sometimes, it seems that we have to fight so hard to get past the lies, the falsehoods, the revisionist histories…..our truth is simple. It is others’ opinions of us, and our beliefs and histories, that turns our existence into a battle.

We try to remain courageous in our heart and face the world each day with strength and self esteem. We know what is right and act from a place of integrity. Someday, I hope that our quiet faith in something unseen, but acted upon daily in pursuit of kindness and compassion, will be acknowledged.

Ours is not a popular opinion in a world that believes winning at any cost is to be admired and that anything said in the pursuit of one’s power is acceptable. But, to try each day despite those that attempt to silence us, to act with empathy and authenticity is an act of courage.

Ambition In The City

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering
are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.
Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
As I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time
was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this
person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,
and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,
I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens
at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm.
