For a few years, there has been a struggle to maintain peace with my persona and with who I want to be. The thing is that I once nurtured my persona because it was how the world perceived me. It got me where I needed to go, but was I happy? No. It was not until I did away with that and became who I am today that I found true peace and even a measure of sanity.
I know for a fact that I am not a saint. Despite this, I do have a moral code I live by. I always talked about it, but I think I finally found a legit meaning for it.
“Do it face to face, make sure that your heart is in the right place. Change through God’s grace.”
It is through this code that from this day forth, I live my life. I believe that by this reason, by this code, by this morality, I will maintain and achieve the success I want. I have come to the conclusion that passiveness is not the answer (Thanks @AuKtober). It is those who actively make changes in life that make all the difference.
I smile a lot more knowing that the people I have met along the way have changed me to the point where I am now.
