Living this life has taught me wisdom is priceless and common sense is not all that common. In the end you can bend your actions to conform to your principles or you can bend your principles to conform to your actions. This is a choice we all must make. It is important to choose the path of integrity because all other roads ultimately lead to ruin.
I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling and catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise
I choose to risk my significance, to live my life so that which came to me a seed goes to the next as a blossom, and that which came to as blossom goes on as fruit. - Dawna Markova
