Michelangelo was said to have created his sculpture of David, by chipping away at everything that wasn’t David. Other brilliant artists have described their work as having stepped forward, as if already intact, from the materials with which they were working. So it is with us. All that we are is already within. This is not an accident. This is not without design or purpose. All that we are is just waiting to become all that we have ever been. Connect to that thought. Nourish it. Allow it to grow.
