Self-reflection reveals you are built into layers. Whether good or bad, your experiences continue to compile. The longer you live, the more layers you add. Hope reveals that it is never too late to be what you might have been. Inspiration starts from within. A will to accept inspiration reinforces behaviors that build the world around you through habits and mannerisms.
You live a life that serves as a role model for others. Your influence on others is like a stone thrown into a calm pool of water. At first the stone causes the displacement of water. Then, the effect causes a ripple. Eventually, even the water on the outside of the periphery, will gently waver. No matter how hard the criticism from others puts you down, pursue your hopes and dreams. You most certainly can, and will, change the world. With commitment and determination, you can accomplish things you never thought possible.
While on the journey for your pursuit of happiness, take a few minutes to examine all that has already happened. If you look at what you have experienced in this life, you will begin to understand that you will always have more than you ever thought. Do not solely rely on chance. True happiness is accomplished by the choices you make.
Some failure is expected along the way. By trial and error, you will learn. Use your inner-strength to bring yourself up from the depths of negativity. Distance yourself from it. Stay in close proximity to anything that encourages you and makes you glad that you are alive. If haunted by your past, move away from it. It isn't where you came from, it’s where you're going that really counts.
You must be willing to let go of the life you planned and start living the life that is ahead of you. If you hesitate, the time will never be just right. We all have certain limitations, but you are never too weak, frail, or old to set another goal or dream another dream.
Small steps in the proper direction are more meaningful and longer-lasting than haphazard leaps. You will never know the value of your life, until it becomes a memory. Do not give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, you will find comfort, harmony, peace, and happiness.
You are enough in this world, just as you are.
