The people I admire most are the one who can say "oops".
They're okay with their own mistakes, know that we all make them, and then can move on. They know that once we acknowledge our part in every situation, that we have taken back our power.
We have been witness to people who have survived the most horrific experiences. The heroes are the ones that did not let their circumstance define them. They grabbed their worth and redirected their compass. They knew the direction to true freedom.
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own.
You do not blame them on your mother; the ecology; or the president.
You realize that you control your own destiny.
