The Inside Job

Feeling great is an inside job. It happens inside the core of our souls. It happens when we stop allowing the situations and conditions of life to dictate the way we feel inside.

Developing an optimistic nature can help you stay centered when life happens, because you’d be cheating yourself if you were only grateful for the good things in life. It is very important to be in a constant state of appreciation and gratitude, regardless of the circumstances we face. Having such an outlook is essential because many of the unfortunate situations we come accross, mask the pearls of personal growth.

On that note, I’ll leave you with a very powerful and beautiful quote from S. Heller:

“A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear that results from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured,  we would not have produced the pearl.”

Find the pearls and cherish them.
