Who You Are

Figure out your values as soon as you can. Learn who you are and what you stand for because if you vacate the responsibility, someone else will happy stand in to do it for you. Horror vacui – “nature abhors a vacuum” and this is quite a big one.

This world we live in, this life of ours, it will shake you up, toss you thither, turn you around, and then knock you down.

I’ll say that again: it will knock you down. Do not be fooled.

The only way forward, for you to get back to your feet, is to know why you’re getting back up. You need to be certain of what is up and what is down, and you need be certain of the ground you stand on.

This is your life and these are your values and this is who you are. Don’t ever let anyone or anything take that away from you.

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
