Words of encouragement

I found this nugget at another woman's blog http://www.livingincourageonline.com/
She too is on a journey to live courageously and freely.  The following is an excerpt from Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" : 
“I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait.”

Walt Whitman

I love this because it deals with acceptance of self and with what is: truth.
