Self Inspiration

Not everything is about you. When other people are rude or inconsiderate, it isn’t about you. Everyone has bad days and everyone struggles. Don’t allow their negative moments become part of you.

If you but reach for it, you can hold all the world with in the palm of your hand. Not in the grabbing of power or things, but in the letting go of things that do not matter to make room for the essential self which is already all the world with in.
