I believe if you do your best to be who you truly are, embrace who you may become, honour all the wonderful things and living beings you share the planet with, actively engage in your life, and take care when you see the need to do so, then you will live in joy.
It’s like, at the end, there’s this surprise quiz: am I proud of me? I gave my life to become the person I am right now! Was it worth what I paid? ~ Richard Bach
