BiographyTop three things that define me
The idea that we are here to use our time in ways that will leave the world better in some way because we were in it. Working with that premise, I assert that we must be productive, proactive, and proficient. Each life has a ripple effect on those around us, so we must be vigilant in order to be a positive force and impact others in the most beneficial way.
Nobody is perfect. On our quest, we will fail ourselves and others.
We will allow fear and other negative emotions to control us. And sometimes we cannot get up when we fall. Sometimes we cannot forgive ourselves for our weaknesses. But we need to remember that nobody gets it right all the time, and the important part is that we are trying and that we never stop trying.
“There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy” reinforces the idea that none of really know as much as we think we do, and it is possible that we are wrong about the things we do think we know. With this in mind, we must open our minds to all possibilities. Think big. Look up in wonder and awe. Love with all your heart even if others continue to break it time after time, just keep loving unconditionally. That is your gift. Not the love you receive, but the love you give away.
