Our daily struggles and our failures do not encompass who we are. It is how we overcome these obstacles that make us the true person inside.
It is not the accumulation of material possessions, nor the goal we did not meet.
These things are forever changing, temporary situations in life, like the changing of seasons, the passing of a cloud, the sand upon the shore. Who we are, our essence lies within us. How we weather the storm, bathe in the sunlight, laugh-or not, in the rain, and evolve with the ebbing and flowing of this wonderful thing called life, that make us who we truly are, and who we are to become.
