So dont waste it living someone elses life. Dont be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other peoples thinking. Dont let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuitions. They somehow already know, WHAT YOU TRULY WANT TO BECOME! Everything else, is secondary. 21.
