Be well,

Let me share this beautiful poem that encourages us to have confidence in ourselves…..


Always we hope.

someone else has the answer.

some other place will be better,

some other time it will all turn out.

This is it.

no one else has the answer.

no other place will be better,

and it has already turned out.

At the center of your being

you have the answer.

you know who you are.

and you know what you want.

There is no need

to run outside

for better seeing.

Nor to peer from a window.

Rather abide at the center of your being.

for the more you leave it, the less you learn.

Search your heart

and see

the way to do

is to be.          –Lao Tzu
