Feel what it is to be you

Have the courage to feel. Feeling connects you with who you are.

Experience your own authentic feelings. There’s nothing to be gained by hiding from your feelings or borrowing the feelings of others.

Your feelings will ask much of you. In return, they give you access to immense power that can be directed toward positive and meaningful purpose.

If you run from your true feelings, you will just end up making them stronger. And they will eventually catch up to you anyway.

Acknowledge your feelings, dive into them and explore their rich abundance. Certainly you will find some pain there, and yet if you are honest you will also find much joy.

Your capacity to feel opens the door to a whole universe of magnificent possibilities. In each moment, feel what it is to be you, and you’ll work your way toward the best you can be.

— Ralph Marston
