Moral Monday (On Wednesday): A Thoughtful Quote
I don't really remember where I saw this but I just know I had to write it down because it was one of the most thought provoking quotes I have ever seen...ever.
"What lies behind us and lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
How do you feel about this when you read it? Does it make you feel good about yourself? Does it make you realize how small your existence is on this earth if you stay on an average Joe life? Do you think it means nothing at all?
I personally find this quote amazing because it says very much about how people should take situations they go through. A situation is something you go through that stays around for a specified amount of time. Some last longer than others. Many are short acquaintances you come by. But, the majority are copable to deal with. The idea that people must think more within for thoughts and ideas is great. Although, I firmly agree that the way a person acts is made up of 70% their environment and 30% their own beliefs. The key is that 30% is what makes you different from the person sitting right next to you going through the same things in life you went through. That is why, uniqueness, in itself is something given to us by a supreme being above. And the uniqueness you are given should be cherished by you and the people around you with all its mite!
So my moral to you is more of a comment than a moral this time. Be happy with what/who you are. Your mind and body can withstand things you may never come to understand until you pass into another era of your life/existence I will call it.
