that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.

who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,
and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
- Joseph Campbell

the greatest fear of humankind,

enjoying what you are doing today.

just a choice.

even though we did our best -
and we are afraid.

she will hear her heart, saying,
"What have you done with the miracles
that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents
God bestowed on you?"
- Paulo Coelho
