~Michael Josephson, American ethicist and founder of the Josephson Institute of Ethics
No matter where you are on the journey of life, be proud of how far you have come, and of both big and small accomplishments. Look to yourself for the validation that you seek, and resist looking for approval from another. Your life is not for another to judge. Be gentle enough to not judge yourself based on what you perceive to be another’s path. While you are moving forward, keep the faith that you, too, shall be protected to rise from the ashes of your pain and see the light from the sun beaming down on you anew. Keep the faith that as long as you listen to your internal guide, you will experience your reality with a gentleness that makes the path easier. Keep the faith that everything happens for a reason, and perhaps you can more fully experience la dolce vita, the sweet life, by living well, laughing often, and loving more fully. Live in gratitude for each day, laugh with your friends at the amusing parts of life, and love others as you want to be loved. If you have not already, you will truly begin to enjoy the journey more and more each day. It is priceless when you experience a rebirth, a renaissance, and start to love the journey for all that it has to offer.
Magical Key to Bliss: Make the conscious decision to just embrace your own existence, and make it a priority to do your best to enjoy the ride!
