This quote from Victoria Erickson reminds us that reaching our full potential comes from within:
“If you inherently long for something, become it first. If you want gardens, become the gardener.
If you want love, embody love. If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation.
If you want peace, exude calmness. If you want to fill your world with artists, begin to paint.
If you want to be valued, respect your own time. If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself.
This is how to draw it in, day by day, inch by inch.”
We can’t always choose our beginnings. We don’t always have control over what challenges come into our lives. But we do have choices in our journey; we can determine the path. Our goal to live joyfully is within us before we ever find it out there. Let us move from the inside out.
