‘At what point is my ego finally satisfied?’

The question: ‘At what point is my ego finally satisfied?’

The answer: ‘At no point’.

And THAT is the point. The service of self ends in the service of self.

… that is a very small place to find myself living in.

Thank you life for the continued lessons.

Remember why you started.

No one is indispensable, but we think we are. Whenever possible, pull yourself away from all you have to do + be still.

Don’t give up. Believe. You can. You will.

“If your heart is broken, make art with the pieces.”
― Shane Koyczan

Resilience touches the parts of us that are hurting. The parts that are trying, the parts that may believe you’re not enough for this. The parts of us that believe our future is not just determined by the stars, but by our own sweat.

I don’t know what you’re going through right now. If you are reading this to pump yourself up, maybe you had a business setback, maybe you’re in a difficult relationship.

You just may be scraping the bottom of your soul for the inspiration that you’re sure is hiding somewhere, and maybe this is it …

I am always asked where I gather my resilience from. I comes from above…
