I am realizing that my point of view as a writer is to discover myself while writing. It is not to fit into someone else’s pigeonhole, to conform to the structure of a certain genre, or to impress people I admire. _M. Romeo LaFlamme
Not to conform to to the structure of a certain genre
My business is not to remake myself,
But make the absolute best of what God made.
Not to impress people I admire
“To thine own self be true.” _William Shakespeare
To make a fresh beginning…
How often we wish for another chance
to make a fresh beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes
And change failure into winning.
It does not take a new day
To make a brand new start,
It only takes a deep desire
To try with all our heart.
To live a little better
And to always be forgiving
And to add a little sunshine
To the world in which we’re living.
So never give up in despair
And think that you are through,
For there’s always a tomorrow
And the hope of starting new.
_ Helen Steiner Rice
