I have been thinking a lot lately about how I want to live my life. I have come to realize that there are certain things that are unconditionally imperative. They can be thought of the ‘truths’ that I hold dear to my heart. Seemingly random, these are truths that I carry with me each day:

  • My children are my number one priority
  • No matter how difficult life gets – I will always celebrate what I have
  • There is always time to stop and really listen
  • Everyone has a positive contribution to make
  • The joy of giving is far greater than the joy of receiving
  • My actions come from love
  • Love and compassion are the greatest gifts I have to give
  • There is something to learn from everyone, especially my ‘enemies’
  • I make peace with where I am, and move on
  • I take time to celebrate life each day
