“To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals–this alone is worth the struggle.” -William PennIt isn’t success that makes our efforts worthwhile. It’s the knowledge that we’re willing face obstacles and challenges to do what we believe is right and good. At the end of the day, self respect and peace of mind don’t come from what we have. They come from being true to ourselves, regardless of what other people think.
Today if you struggle, remember: a life lived in alignment with your ideals and values is the ultimate reward.
