The only expectations we need to fill, are our own. In being true to one's self, we can then be true to all. We can never live up to how others define us, only to how we define ourselves. Seek peace and contentment, but never let it stop you from putting it at risk for that which you believe in. To settle merely for contentment, is just a comfortable way of drowning.

Cliched perhaps, but none the less true. There is no greater regret, than that for what we didn't try. It's easy to put yourself at physical risk, much harder...and scary....to put your inner self at risk. Yet, in the end, win or lose, that is the only path to finding real happiness.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
