July 2, 2013 11:24pm DC 13’ Day 3
Today was on whole other level! I didn’t expect to feel how I felt when I walked into the US Captiol…..I felt that I was amongst greatness and that I our group was being handed the torch to carry on a legacy of greatness( I know it sounds kind of corny but whatever). In all honesty, I regret having regrets about some of my past decisions and illogical behavior. Nonetheless, I have a whole lot of adjustments to make and reconciling to do so that I can begin to move closer to the path of my greatness. Their were two quotes on the Frederick Douglas memorial that moved me in two unique ways.
- “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”
Right now I’m definitely struggling in many areas of my life but in the end my progress and purpose will be evident.
- “The soul that is within me no man can degrade.”
I continue to smile through all my struggles because though I may not look like where I see myself going, that doesn’t mean I ain’t on my way.
