“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.” – Goethe

I love this quote. It’s simple and it holds in it a map for our lives.

Trusting ourselves means to quiet our minds enough to hear our most profound voice tell us who we are, what we want and how to reconcile our inner world with the demands of a society that does not have contentment on its mind.  The old phrase be in this world but not of this world requires introspection and a desire to live life by inspired by meaning.

Our answers rest within us but somehow most of us insist in tiptoeing around them as if afraid to wake them up.

How silly that we have bought into listening to the world’s latest fashion and obsession instead of to the wise voice inside that knows us better than anyone.  Our power and our freedom depend on sitting down, making friends with our truths.  And when we do that, we will also find contentment.

How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.  – Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel
