Daily Dose of Inspiration

“You have been told that, even like a chain, you are as weak as your weakest link.

“This is but half the truth. You are also as strong as your strongest link.

“To measure you by your smallest deed is to reckon the power of ocean by the frailty of its foam.

“To judge you by your failures is to cast blame upon the seasons for their inconstancy.”

~ Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

You get to choose how you view and judge yourself. You can be critical and harsh and resonate negatively, or you can be supportive and proud and resonate positively.

Have you noticed how your thoughts and emotions feed upon each other? It doesn’t take much for things to spiral out of control. But this doesn’t have to happen. It’s just a matter of perspective. All it takes is compassion and understanding to moderate the extremes and return to your loving center.

Life is cyclical; honor the cycles. But even more, my friend, honor your heart. It’s home.
