I love this quote because it is at the core of what I am coming to learn about life- that it’s not so much about what I do, as it is about who I am. I used to be much more of a do-er and achiev-er and a take care of-er. Now I focus on relating to people. I focus on relating to people in an authentic way, an honest way, a way that gives them a different relational experience than maybe they’ve ever had before.
Another Maya Angelou quote from her classic, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, is “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
No matter who you are, you have a song. You have a unique song that no other person on this earth has or will ever sing.
So sing it.
