There will always be people who will tell you what to be and who to be like.
Listen politely to their advice then decide for yourself what and who you will be.
You will make mistakes but you will also do things right.

Just because there are fences doesn’t mean you have to stay behind them.
Be courageous and adventurous.
It’s your journey, listen to your heart and travel your path.

You are who you are.
Make no excuses for this fact.
Celebrate being you.

Be someone who is bold and brave living your own beautiful life.

The peace of understanding…

Sparks 25


“Peace cannot be kept by force,
it can only be achieved by understanding.”
Albert Einstein

In Other Words,
write 5 lines or less using the word accidentally

I met this guy while out for my walk. He lives in the neighborhood though we never talked before because we are so different.  He was very interesting and not at all what I thought one of his kind was like and after talking, he said he felt the same.  We sort of accidentally became friends once we came to understand we aren’t all that different.
