“To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.” – Yann Martel
You can’t change who you are at your core. You can only work with what you have and improve upon what’s already there. It’s taken me 27 years to figure that out. I’m a work in progress. I am and always will be myself. Good and bad.
