I can love only one person at a time. I can feed only one person at a time.
So you begin with one.
If I didn’t pick up that one person, I wouldn’t have picked up 42,000.
My whole work is only a drop in the ocean.
But if I didn’t put the drop in, the ocean would be one drop less.” —Mother Teresa (via radioteopoli)
Tomorrow is the beginning of the end, the first day of my last semester of high school. With new classes, teachers, and hopefully some new faces it seems like it could be a fresh start. This made me think about how people view new beginnings, everyone seems to always wait for a fresh start, a new year, a new city or a new job where they can finally start being the person they’ve always desired to be. But why? Why does everyone assume that the only time they are able to change who they are is when their surroundings change? Personally, I think this is just an excuse for our own inabilities. We all desire to be someone, often just a better version of who we already are, but when it comes down to it we’re scared. We’re scared of what others will say or how society might react. We hold off on being the person we’ve always dreamed of because we assume that it wont align with others expectations. But why? Why do we let others dictate our lives?
So here’s to being ourselves before 2013! Here’s to acting different because we want to and not because society’s allowed us to! Here’s to new years resolutions after new years and making changes just because we feel like it! Here’s to being you!
