Oh, the places you’ll go…

I really like this. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was an amazing read with a lot of great quotes, but this one is definitely in my top favorites. It speaks to something that I think we forget about often: we have the power to determine the person we are going to be. It comes off as being very arbitrary and simple, but it’s true. We’re the pilot of our life. While we have no control over the past and the reasons why we are who we are today, we do have the ability to steer ourselves in the direction we go in from this moment on. Honestly, I think we tend to forget this from time to time. A lot of outside experiences influence our lives, sure, but at the end of the day, it’s you who has the final say in how they affect you. Don’t forget about the power you have, and don’t be afraid to use it.
