On life and whole-hearted living…

Thought for the day : On life and whole-hearted living…

Never shy away from opportunity and whole-hearted living. Never be fearful of putting yourself out there. The courageous may encounter many disappointments, experience profound disillusionment, gather many wounds; but cherish your scars for they are the proud emblems of a truly phenomenal life. The fearful, cautious, cynical and self-repressed do not live at all. And that is simply no way to be in this world.”

― Anthon St. Maarten

  1. Such wise and beautiful words. It also makes me think of Nelson Mandela’s quote about overcoming fear and realising that we are meant to shine. It serves no purpose to hide our true potential or allow others to extinguish our light. Shine on I say. We need more beacons of wisdom in these uncertain times!
