Understand that the right to choose your own path is a sacred privilege. Use it. Dwell in possibility.
On one hand, it is very important that democracy and human rights be defended across borders. But it is also very important to respect the right of each country to choose its own path.
My family was very supportive of whatever I wanted because my grandfather was an opera singer. My dad's dad. So my dad has an appreciation for the arts, and he let me choose my own path.
I think it just helps to be very aware that fundamentally, there are no adults. Everyone is making it up as they go along. You have to find your own path, picking, choosing, taking and discarding as you see fit.
Strength isn't about bearing a cross of grief or shame. Strength comes from choosing your own path, and living with the consequences.
Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you're going to live your life.
You make your Own luck.
Neale Donald Walsch
The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.
John F. Kennedy
