"When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you."

I think we all need to be ourselves in this life we have. Valuable time can be wasted when we compete with others in things that shouldn't matter as much. I tend to follow my own way in areas that are important to me. Sometimes this raises eyebrows, sometimes not. We all have the ability to choose, but at times stand still in which direction to take.

When I falter, I raise.

When I doubt, I regroup.

If I compare, I lose sight.

Tomorrow, I will start over.

It takes guts to be yourself and to follow your heart, but before you can do either you have to KNOW yourself...that can be the hardest part.  Respect must first come from within...sounds like you have figured that out :)

Beautiful entry Carol.  It's amazing how terrifying it can be to be true to yourself.  I'm working at it everyday.  One thing I'm slowly learning...though there is discomfort in daring to stand sure feels good once you get there.

Lovely photo!!
