My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations

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.

acquaintances, and others who share your life.
