“Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.”
– St Francis de Sales, Roman Catholic Saint
Envy and jealousy rob us of our power. When we focus on the qualities and characteristics of others, we often pine for what we feel may be missing or lacking in ourselves. Personal appearance, physical abilities, and intellectual capacities are just a few examples.
Instead of wishing to be someone else, what if we fan the flames of our own passions and unique abilities to become our best self?
What if it were all about the journey within – a perfect-fitting life which was intended all along?
What would be possible if you were perfectly yourself?
