quite mom like how you arrived none of us left unscathed even with appearance perfect love we left the nest and enter the world an imperfect version of ourselves to be further sculpted by relations some experiences trial tragedies and those trials were top maybe you were fired from a good job a dismissal leaving your surface unfinished raw fan displeasing to future employers maybe a spouse cheated on you more use m conway pieces of yourself never to be replaced or miss somehow glued back together forever fragile maybe a life seems just peachy but deep inside he lost sense of direction your purpose here guiding light leaving nothing a thin stone shell causally endanger breaking open to bear your secret true to others every trial moulds you for better or worse is the moulding for the better that you seek you are not alone everyone wants to improve their situation
their lot in life we can do so an infinite ways marriage can be a source of positive transformation work can lift us up friends and books can inspire us striving to hammer but a wholly new version of ourselves as unrecognisable better smoother more refined the company keep the media you read the food you it man the thought you think are all keeping you intentionally or not into the sculpture you'll become but you are not alone you are not the only block a stone in this world you are not the only one looking to live a better life everyone around you has their own to learn their own sculpture to form and just as you been carved out by your experiences interactions trials and tragedies so too can you help carved else into a the version of him or herself can and should you are sculptor you are a block of stone but you are also an artist etching change into each
life you touch every interaction with another is chipping away at their block ever so slightly tweaking their form i don't mean to maybe all realise that you affect other people in unknown ways but you do the work he is in a way you treat people for ever alters their life sometimes in big ways most i am in small unknown ways press not the size of the church these are matters its whether the alteration you make help them become the sculpture they have hidden inside the true self as i write this art go my hope that by hearing it you'll leave a slightly your version of the person that arrived i wish for this article it you're thinking in some small way they'll have a positive effect on your life in those around you and this better version of yourself i hope comes from the real nation that while its true your being sculpted by life you are a sculptor yourself with every conversation you can shape
listen to the beautiful form they were meant to be or something else with every life you touch you transform others into that which they are intended to become or not it's a huge responsibility and one that's hard to get right but if you only response quality and act on it you have given everyone you encounter the chance to become the sculpture their meant to be sharp in your tool scalding others requires two things sculpting requires vigilance and that you continuously be aware of how you are affecting others just as it would be damned jane to swing a ball and chain without regard around michelangelo's david so too would it be decreed views down another's throat thoughtlessly sculpting requires sharp tools and that your manners respect honour virtue attitude mindset and character must be in top for the sharper the better just
it would be harmful to shape mount rushmore with a rusty spoon so too would it be too disrespect another be little them or assassinate their character these parts of yourself the unqualifiable pieces that make you you are the tools you can use to lift others up or cut them down if you're tools are blunt new risks leaving a trail of rubble behind you but if you tools are sharp you can use them to great advantage bringing out the best and others inspiring them in a memorable and positive impression in their lives that they will ultimately pay forward user tools often give your jewels sharp means holding them with constant practice every encounter is an opportunity to refine their edge hold the door for someone say thank you if they do for you write a note to a sibling dear parents say a prayer for a relative cook dinner for
