Reminder to myself:

It’s not about having everything be the way you want it to be;
It’s about having a chance to change the way things are.

It’s not about how many people care about you;
It’s about listening to the people who tell you the truths you don’t want to hear.

It’s not about being the most beautiful, desirable woman in the room;
It’s about seeing beauty in everyone and desiring to be only yourself.

It’s not about making the most money or having the most toys;
It’s about what you do with that money and with whom you share your toys.

It’s not about how many lovers you’ve had or hearts you’ve broken;
It’s about learning to love truly, deeply and with tenderness for the heart you’re holding.

It’s not about being the best, the brightest or the most admired;
It’s about finding the best in your fellow man and telling him so.

It’s not about being the most powerful or strongest;
It’s about using your strength to help those who are weak.

It’s not about shouting boastfully to be heard;
It’s about letting your actions speak your truth.

It’s not about proving a point;
It’s about keeping your mind open.

It’s not about what you say;
It’s about how you say it.

It’s not about the end of the life;
It’s about the journey that came before it.
