This week quote is actually my new moto…
I tried, I really did try to mute myself and behave the way I knew I would have blended with everybody. Thing is, I am who I am. I have values I stand for, and I really do try to ponder what I say and what I believe in…
Life taught me lessons the hard way, and I cherish those lessons, as they made me who I am. It wasn’t an easy process, it was a painful, thoughtful, growing path. I do what I feel I have to do, and I do it heartfully. Sometimes people appreciate it, sometimes they don’t. But I keep being myself.
Being myself was in fact a really freeing process. I do not try or even think to please people, to follow the new trend. I am just being myself, and I live it rather peacefully…. I do not feel any pressure, I just follow my heart and do what I feel is the right thing.
I also know that sometimes, what we do is like a wave: it softly reaches one person then another, and so on. We just don’t really know who will be touched, how deep, how far… So I really do think twice before I do or say anything that might hurt people… But in the end of the day, I will do what I feel is the right thing, even if I send a wave that will come back to me. Be this is who I am. And I am not scared to face what I do or say. Integrity is the value I held the highest I think. So there is nothing to be ashamed for. And the waves I make are most of the time soft, caring waves… Why should I be scared? I am happy to send them and to have them back!
So this week, free yourself! Be who you are, truly are, and make waves you’ll be happy to have come back to you.
Anyway, here is this week challenge:
Quote: « Don’t worry if you are making waves simply by being yourself. The Moon does it all the time. Scott Stabile
Here are the rules of the challenge:
- Each thursday, I’ll give you a quote and a pattern to play with. You can use both, you can use only one of them, it’s up to you.
- You have till the next wednesday to make your card and share it with us in the facebook group (just ask to be added, and I will open the doors wide open to you )
- The goal of this challenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
Here is my card : I have to say it’s one of my favorite!
