Actively Becoming Yourself

Every day we forge our own existence, purpose, and identity. Many people are under the impression that purpose is placed upon them, or revealed to them perhaps in some celestial vision… But this is not the case. Epiphanies do not come to sedentary minds that wait for direction. Open your eyes and mind to the world around you and let it inspire you. Ponder thoroughly. Ask yourself questions nobody has the answer to and answer them.

Every action you take, big and small, makes another stitch in your own personal tapestry. So the question is not “who will I be?” but rather “who will I make myself?”

The universe is not responsible for your failures, nor your successes. You are. You are responsible for your actions and your reactions. This is a fact you can either be ashamed of or proud of. It depends on what you choose to do.

Lastly, remember that failure is not making mistakes; those are inevitable. Failure is not learning from the mistakes you make.
