~ “Each one of us has our own evolution of life, and each one of us goes through different tests which are unique and challenging. But certain things are common. And we do learn things from each other’s experience. On a spiritual journey, we all have the same destination.” – A. R. Rahman

~ “Often we want to be somewhere other than where we are, or even to be someone other than we are. We tend to compare ourselves constantly with others and wonder why we are not as rich, as intelligent, as simple, as generous, or as saintly as they are. Such comparisons make us feel guilty, ashamed, or jealous. It is very important to realize that our vocation is hidden in where we are and who we are. We are unique human beings, each with a call to realize in life what nobody else can, and to realize it in the concrete context of the here and now. We will never find our vocations by trying to figure out whether we are better or worse than others. We are good enough to do what we are called to do.”
~ Henri Nouwen
Be you. Be-autiful!
Some lovely quotes to contemplate on this rather gloomy day today! Once someone asked me, “What has been one of your biggest failures?”
After much thought I said, “Trying to be someone I’m not!” The temptation to do this is so strong, yet I find, my happiest moments were when I was free to be me.
Thanks for the quote,
I agree! Thanks Priscilla! 🙂
