There is such freedom and such power in just being who I am with integrity and doing what I do with passion.
Stress and powerlessness only come into the picture when I try to decide what the outcomes should be and how others should perceive what I am and do.
The key is letting those concerns go every morning before they creep into my psyche, weigh down my buoyancy, and strangle my joy until I am a balloon without helium.
It is not people who do this to me. It is my own panic to generate the self-worth that is already there. This Jim Carrey quote is not arrogant, it simply reflects brilliant awareness of the irrevocable value of everything.
