The Difficult Road to the Easy Path – Daily Quote

Often the most difficult tasks to achieve, appear to be the easiest. As we struggle to succeed, it is easy to compare our skills and our progress with everyone else. We listen to advise from teachers, family members, and friends, without realizing their advice represents their choices. If we neglect to choose our path in favor of a consensus, we lose ourselves. Doubts cloud our judgment, and we succumb to our insecurities and fears.

Honoring our authentic selves means determining what matters most. We must place less reliance on the opinions of those around us, since trying to satisfy everyone is a guaranteed way to please no one and to make ourselves miserable in the process. Regardless of our choices, we will never gain everyone’s approval. Releasing the need to subjugate our genuine desires is an important step towards discovering who we really are.

How will you be true to yourself today?

  1. An inspiring post, of which I especially love the quote. Makes me think about how happier I’ve been since I’ve stopped counting the number of times people called me weird as a negative, but rather as a positive that acknowledges my efforts in being me, unaffected by the expectations of those around me. On being true to myself today, I will write a poem and read to feed my mind. Thanks for an inspiring post, have a blessed day

    • How we frame something has a huge impact on our reactions, doesn’t it Lazarus? We can take weird, odd, and different and turn them into unique, rare, and precious.. The idea sparkles like the Hope Diamond.

      Enjoy your day and your poem. 💕😊
