AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.

My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
