“I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.”

Dalai Lama

“Often, it’s not about becoming a new person.

But becoming the person you were meant to be.

The person you already are.

But don’t know how to be.”

-Heath L. Buckmaster

It’s about taking off your masks and putting down the walls.

About casting down the facades and allowing yourself to simply be.

To be authentic.

To be honest.

To be you.

It’s about letting go of the fear and shame surrounding your true identity.

It’s about reminding yourself that other people’s judgement may sting, but it will never burn as painfully as having to live a lie.

As having to live as someone you are not, every day of your life.

It’s about allowing yourself to be whoever it is that you are, and reveling in it.
