None of us are perfect. We all have that in us which we are ashamed to look at in the mirror, which we’ve strived to conquer yet still fallen short.
The beauty comes in trying … trying each and every day to rid ourselves of that which we despise.
In trying, there is some victory. And every victory adds another brick to the foundation we’re trying to build. Until one day, without realizing it, our house is built and we’re able to live in peace and joy.
And we’ll soon discover that as we work hard to change ourselves, the world around us is changing as well.
