"Of all the beautiful truths pertaining to the soul which have been restored and brought to light in this age, none is more gladdening or fruitful of divine promise and confidence than this: that man is the master of thought, the moulder of character, and the maker and shaper of condition, environment, and destiny. As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills. Man is always the master, even in his weakest, and most abandoned state."
-As A Man Thinketh, James Allen
You alone, are the smith of the iron that your fate is. As a human being, it is your privilege, and your duty, to do your best in whatever you do. A past that degraded you, a future that scares you, and a present that you're unpresent in, boil down to your personal apocalypse, with you dying a thousand deaths every second you breathe the doubt in. And you wonder why your heart feels heavy, carrying the piles of your countless dead bodies with the weighted quilt of shame covering them?
Don't smell of death. Don't look like death. Don't be death. You're life, springing out of rough cracks in rugged walls, surviving against the odds of being crushed into powder. You're happening, you're light, you're depth, and beauty, and everything nice. Don't let that die. Bring yourself back to life by embracing all that you are and can be. Don't die, it reeks here already. What we need is the freshness of being.
