Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions,
it is governed by our mental attitude.
- Dale Carnegie

Each of us is of infinite value,
and each of us has the ability to make
a profound difference in the lives we touch.
We leave our most profoundly positive impact
on those around us by the nature of our lives
and the example we set -
not by how busy we are,
or how important we believe we are.
Setting an example of being loving, relaxed and joyful,
regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.
Self importance - ego - is not a path to happiness.
Focusing one's whole life on responsibilities,
without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.

can be an invitation for an extraordinarily unfettered,
creative and unbounded inner structure.

and vow never to criticize their nature -
the essence that makes them uniquely themselves.
