Who Do We Answer To

Sometimes in life, we seem to lose our direction when we base our actions on what we think will please other people. We assume what others would want and make plans accordingly, whether we have included them in the planning or not. Although we try our best to make other people happy, we never seem to win. Someone is always disappointed with the outcome. Finding ourselves amongst the emotional chaos we have created is sometimes difficult. But it is important that we stop ourselves for a moment and reflect upon the role we have played.  We may not be happy with what we find, but life is about recognizing where we have gone wrong and being able to acknowledge that we can learn by our mistakes. Today, take a moment to ask yourself who directs your actions. If you are insinc with your true spirit, the answer will be "myself". If not, remember that living a life of compassion means taking care of yourself, so that you can truly be able to help others.

Sometimes I want to lose myself in the quiet beauty of the islands...
