It takes everything to begin something. All of your courage. All of you willpower. The energy it takes to get something rolling in a different direction is massive. ⁠

Efforts from faint hearts will not do.⁠

No matter what has happened in the past, you can create a different future. Each moment you have a choice of how you want to create the very world in front of you. ⁠

You can choose to live in fear or you can choose to live in love. This is your decision to make and yours entirely. No one can make it but you.⁠

No matter how much you try, you can’t control everything. There will be things that happen that are completely out of your hands. Understand this deeply. ⁠

the important part is that you're trying. you'll figure it out. just be patient and stay committed to the path. evan sanders. the better man project. quote.

But what you can do is choose how you want to move forward after that event has happened. You can hold onto it and let the pain fester or you can move through it with light and let it dissolve around you. You can hold resentment or grace. ⁠

Once again, that choice is yours and yours alone.⁠

It will take time. It’s not easy. But the process frees you from the moments of the past that used to control you. It lets you escape a prison of your own making.⁠

Be willing to let go of the things that you know in order to truly begin to “see.” The way you’ve been doing things, the things you think you know and the habits you have can all put you in a box. Be flexible enough to let those morph into things that truly serve you. ⁠

Don’t be afraid to start all over again. 30 days of being truly alive and living your truth can make you more alive than 5 years of just surviving. Time is a funny thing like that. ⁠

Think about more “being” and less “doing.”
