Thought for Today

“Patterning your life around other’s opinions is nothing more than slavery.” — Lawana Blackwell

People always seem to have opinions about how we should live our lives, don’t they? From serious issues such as health, to personal ones like political or religious belifs to the more trivial like how we dress or wear our hair (the photo today is my hair and people do have opinions) everyone seems to have an opinion. And in the computer age we seem compelled to express them.

Of course there is a time to listen and sometimes apply suggestions from others, but we have to resist becoming a copy of anyone else.  Being someone other than who you were created to be is slavery.  You don’t want to go there.

“Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose – not the one you began with perhaps, but one you’ll be glad to remember.” -Anne Sullivan

“Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.”— W.C. Fields
