Today’s Writing Prompt:
It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
The world is powered by passionate people, powerful ideas, and fearless action. What’s one strong belief you possess that isn’t shared by your closest friends or family? What inspires this belief, and what have you done to actively live it?
I believe anything can be accomplished, but I’m not sure I have what could be considered a strong belief. That is, unless you want to count anything I believe in. Reading this prompt, I’m not sure I have anything to describe. Reading Emerson’s quote, I understand perfectly. I’ve always been one to live by my own set of rules. I guess I will continue trying to recognize if I have that “one strong belief”.
