Ten things that matter most to me in this life are:
Love — It is the most precious of gift of all.
Nourishment — Air, Water, and Food — These are necessities. Life must have access to clean air, clean water and food to sustain itself.
Free Speech — Ideas must never be censored whether one agrees with them or not.
A Belief In Myself — No one is more deserving of your trust and love than you.
Solitude — Solitude is refuge for the soul. Learn to incorporate it into your life.
Dreams — They are the windows into your life. Dreams do not always lead to reality, but they always lead to possibilities. Welcome them, even your nightmares have something to tell you.
Promises — Keep the ones you make. They are the foundation of trust.
Creativity — When you realize you are more than a creation — Create!
Freedom — To believe whatever you choose to believe and not be punished for that belief as long as no one is harmed because of it.
Death — It is inevitable for every living creature. Learn to accept and to live with its reality.
