“Your current situation is giving you the opportunity to re-evaluate what you want.”
“Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.”
“The moment you accept responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you gain the power to change anything in your life.”
A special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available in a specific area of a person’s life.
Often with the word ‘privilege’ there is a negative connotation that comes with it, but having privilege isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Having privilege doesn’t mean a person has it easy, rather it means that having that privilege doesn’t actively make the person’s life harder, as it would without it.
This is so beautiful and true. The message I take from these words is that though we are small, we still have great significance. Each and every flower, wave, and gust of wind is important and makes a difference. Also, each of us serves a purpose. To what that purpose is I can’t say; that is for each and every individual to figure out and determine on their own. But I just love this! ❤

Happiness is an emotion that can come and go very quickly or stick around for a little while; it all depends on the situation and its circumstances. Nevertheless, I believe that it mostly depends on us, whether we really want that happiness to stay or not. We might all say that we do, but then something happens and we sort of just lose that happiness. Yet, I think we can choose to keep it longer if we really want to. But, that means we can’t let other circumstances affect us negatively, because that’s where the problem begins. We can choose to be happy no matter what happens however, it can be a very difficult choice. And sometimes that choice comes with sacrifice, but often times when you really look at it, that sacrifice is worth it. Though there will always be things that can temporarily rob us of happiness, we always have the choice to change the situation and bring back that happiness.
But, sometimes looking at things from this perspective can be hard. Even though we have the choice, it doesn’t make it easier. Choosing happiness is hard, and the sacrifices that come with that can make or break a person. So, rather that focusing on choosing happiness, try looking at it as thinking positively. Finding the good in a bad or broken situation. We can’t choose how we feel, but we can choose how we think about the situation. Instead of focusing so much on being happy, we should be focusing on how we can make the most of our lives. And that means embracing the happy with the sad, the triumph with the failure, and each and every moment of our lives, because they are what define us.
“Truth is simple: it has no clothes, no neat little box to contain it.
But we cannot grasp that which has no box. We cannot perceive Truth without clothing.
So Truth dresses up for us, in a story, in sage advice, in a blueprint of the cosmos—in clothes woven from the fabric of Truth itself.
And then, when we have finally come to a firm grasp of that teaching, Truth switches clothes. It tells us another story—entirely at odds with the first. It tells us new advice—to go in a different direction. It provides another model of how things are—in which each thing has changed its place.
The fool is confused. He exclaims, “Truth has lied!”
The wise person listens, he is patient, and through his labor he hears a third voice, one that brings harmony to these opposites he has learned.
Until he discovers that Truth is a simple, pure light no box can contain. And so, it belongs in all places, at all times.”
