“There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.”
― Howard Thurman
The spirit of God that lies within all of us is something to be explored. Taking the time to find the true authentic you is a journey everyone should try in their life at least once. I say that because it has taken me the majority of my life, to find that person. To stop trying to be something or someone that I am not. To stop looking for the approval of those around me. Never along the way did I ever think that I would find the kind of happiness that comes with learning to tap into the power that lies within. However great the struggle has been I am truly grateful that God spared me and gave me a chance to tap back in to the gift he gave me. His very essence.
