“Appreciation, whether of nature, or books, or art, or men, depends very much on temperament. What is beauty or genius or greatness to one, is far from being so to another.” – Tryon Edwards
These words of Tryon Edwards would leave you to contemplate about admiration for something solely depends on how you perceive it. There were times when I was too concerned by about my skin color, my height, my hair, my face, everything I felt was not right in my eyes or else in others’ eyes. But, over time, I’ve learned to accept and embrace myself. Today, I believe I’ve everything to chase my dreams, to dare, to challenge things that I feel I don’t deserve, to believe I deserve better. Yes, I do. I need not have to settle for less. What if you’re late, does it matter?
These thoughts just somehow came into my mind, while I was standing outside in my balcony at this hour of bright sunny Sunday. Now, there is a long list of things I need to do. Certainly, reading good books is one of them. And, about other things will talk some other day.
How do you guys motivate yourself? What are the things that keep you spirited and passionate?
