“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.”- Buddha
With this philosophy in mind, I continue the journey I started years ago – the “road” has been long, the obstacles many, but perhaps with the help of this blog I will go all the way.
I used to see the “truth” in this proverb as perfection. This is what I sought for in everything I did – I, like so many others, wanted to go all the way. Who can blame me? Magazines, instagram and cosmetic surgery all add up to an idealistic world, a world without bad hair days, without failure, without tears. The only problem is, how can you appreciate the good if you’ve never endured the bad?
I am starting to see that “truth” actually means happiness. Accepting who you are, accepting your imperfections, because who knows, maybe they’re the reason somebody loves you. So this is the road I am on now, and this is why I’m writing – I want to document this journey and maybe inspire or help someone discover their own “truth” along the way.
