For each of us, there will come a time when we find ourselves facing a challenge that leaves us feeling like we have no control over what’s going on in our lives.
Much has been said about the power of the word no, yet most of us still find ourselves unable to utter this word with the same ease that we possess when we say yes to something or someone.
If an eagle is raised among chickens and begins to act like a chicken, if he never learns to fly, eats whatever he can find on the ground instead of soaring above its prey and snatching up the cream of the crop, if he settles for less than what he is worth, it’s not because he stopped being an eagle, he simply forgot who he truly is.
Our purpose in this journey is simply to be. In every moment, to experience fully. That is why we’re here. Your happiness and your joy are not in the future. They are here in the now.
I often wonder how much happier we would be if we could only shut out the noise.
