to become your own greatest Hero.

You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.

find an ample measure of my own joy.

bring joy into someone's life,
feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

so don't waste it living someone else's life.

to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.
