When does a belief bring out the best in you?
When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday

or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.

I used to think that no one could know me better than somebody else,
because you're inside yourself, your body, you can't see yourself.

which are usually judgmental people ...
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.

and I'm willing.
