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.

IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.
My choice resides in my perspective.

and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
