Quote from The 9 Steps to Emotional Fitness a book by Warren Redman

This is, perhaps, another way of saying “wherever you go, there you are”. Since you were born, you have been in your own place, and always a place of your own making. Like it or not, it’s yours; and here’s the point, you can make it just as you want it.

The “swamp” may be your physical environment, your home, place of work or wherever you hang out. It may also be the place in which you view yourself in life; how you see yourself fit into your community, your personal and professional world and the place where you feel you have arrived in your life.

The centre of your own being is within you. That’s your real swamp. And out of that swamp, just as it has been in nature, can emerge the unique individual that is your personal offering to the world. Even if you don’t think it’s much, just think about how special it is.

In peace
