I'm not the biggest fan of facebook status updates and inspirational quotes - I find it to be very 'cheesy' and sentimental most of the time. But this morning, one of my facebook friends posted this quote which I think is worth sharing: "Your life is your message to the world. Make it inspiring" - Lorrin L. Lee.
We like to think that it's what we do, and what we do to others that define us to a large extent. We often believe that words and the messages that we portray are key elements to the legacy that we leave behind. I believe that it's the complete package - the way in which we live our life - that comprises who we are and whether other people find us to be inspiring or not.
One of the biggest challenges in life is to be true to yourself - really true, in most circumstances. This implies that you will be unpopular in some conversations, that you will say or do things that other people will not necessarily approve off and that you will not be invited to each and every party any more. You won't be crowned as 'mr nice guy / miss nice girl' - but, you win the prize for being you! And that's inspiring!
