In a very few words, Nelson Mandela delivers a lot of wisdom here.
I wonder how life changing it would be to take this quote into consideration before making big decisions?
Where would my life be had I followed this? And what would it look like in the future if I start to follow it now?
A life built from fear or a life built around hope? The answer seems obvious, but not so easy in tense moments.
My wish for all of us is that we have the courage in all circumstances to live our lives based on the beautiful hope within us..
Worrying about what other people think about you adds unnecessary stress to your life.
Once you release your fear of other people’s opinions, you set yourself free to live your own life.
You become free to live a life true to you that honours your own spirit.
Now you cease to be a sheep helplessly pushed along by the crowd.
You have transformed into a lioness, and nothing can stop you.
Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is freedom – Marilyn Ferguson
When you know exactly who you are and decide exactly where your personal boundaries fall, you can face the world with strength. Even in difficult situations.
It’s okay to feel afraid, or angry, or insecure, or any other emotion that arises within you. Acknowledge your emotions. Breathe through the difficult ones Then let them slowly dissipate.
Life is for living. Life is for enjoying.
Lovingly embrace every minute!
