Your Circumstances Don’t Define Your Authentic Self

We were all born under circumstances that we did not choose.

Some people were born less fortunate than others.

Some people were born less talented than others.

Some people were born looking different.

But no matter what our circumstances might be, they do not define who our authentic self is or where we’re going or even what we’re really capable of doing.

We are more than our circumstances.

We are more than our conditions.

We are more than what people see.

We are more than what we even see in ourselves!

Where you started your journey is not where you’re going to end it.

And the way you started your journey is not the way that your journey is going to end.

Your journey can only get better as the days go by, as long as you don’t let your initial circumstances or conditions define what your whole journey is going to look like.
