Whenever I’m faced with a difficult decision, I ask myself, ‘What would I do if I weren’t afraid of making a mistake? Feeling rejected? looking foolish? Or being alone?’ I know for sure that when you remove the fear, the answer that you’ve been searching for comes into focus and as you walk into your fear, you should know for sure that your deepest struggle can, if you’re willing and open, produce your greatest strength.

The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.

-Barack Obama

Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don’t want it. What seems conceit, bad manners, or cynicism is a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.
