Let not the hardships of life keep you from becoming who you truly are. Do not hold back the fullness of you, all that you are, but let it blossom and grow. Your full potential is in you from the very beginning, its roots nurtured by coming into life, its growth spurned on by the energy that has been inside you from the very beginning, the spark of you that lies waiting inside you always for recognition. Nurture yourself, the part of you that is the real you. Have no doubt that this you is the true you, the you that has always been in there, waiting and wanting to live. What are you holding back for? You may not achieve everything your soul desires of you, but give it a chance to have the experiences it first set out to have. You have it in you. You always have, from the very beginning, the true you. Live fearlessly but with awareness. Live fully but with compassion. Live now but always with your one true self in heart and mind.
