Quote of the Week

“Keep true, never be ashamed of doing right; decide on what you think is right and stick to it.”  T.S. Eliot

This quote is such good food for thought. There are so many wonderful aspects of greatness that can be taken from this pearl of wisdom. Doing the right thing is often on most peoples minds. Making sure we all do what’s right so that we can feel we are living good or fulfilling lives is usually in the forefront of our minds. But, what is the right thing? Who should decide what is right and what is wrong? Should it be the government, our parents, our piers? If none of them, then who?

My opinion, is that we should. Each one of us, individually has a feeling about the things we do, from combing out hair to taking care of our children. We know when something feels right to us and when something doesn’t. I believe that sometimes we get our priorities mixed up and start placing others opinions or beliefs ahead of our own and this is when we feel the worst. No one can live our lives for us or create in our experiences. That is our job as individuals. We all know what feels right to us and when we stick to our guns, no matter how hard it may be, we always feel good about ourselves and what we stand for. Let’s work to never be ashamed of who we are and what believe. In the long one, it’s our own opinion of ourselves and our beliefs that matters most.
