The Unique Expression of You

Hiking in the Eldorado Preserve

I am coming to the conclusion that
my highest ambition is to be what
I already am . . .  We must first
become like ourselves and stop
living “beside ourselves”.

One of the best ways to make yourself happy
is to make other people happy.  One of the
best ways to make other people happy is to
be happy yourself.

Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull
of that which you truly love.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy,
a quickening that is translated through
you into action, and because there is only
one of you in all time, this expression is unique.
And if you block it, it will never exist through
any other medium and will be lost.

~Martha Graham~

I think Martha Graham says it best (I’ve used this quote before) in describing the importance of knowing, loving and BEING YOURSELF.  Let’s not waste another day living “beside ourselves”.
