Days with our friends and families are wonderful.
The times we spend with those we love are important; we treasure them.
But the day you realize that you are responsible for the quality of your life might be the best day of all.
“Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events. Great men have always done so, and confided themselves childlike to the genius of their age, betraying their perception that the absolutely trustworthy was seated at their heart, working through their hands, predominating in all their being.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, from Self-Reliance
