The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)

Very few of us are ever actually taught how to live. We’re not taught what it means to be fully alive. There’s no curriculum for this.

If we do look to formal education for answers, we most often are given knowledge and facts, but these hardly suffice. We want meaning; we are given information.

The reality is if you want to really live, you must become self-motivated. You must be ready to risk, to look inside yourself, to look carefully at others, to practice a lot of trial and error. The job is yours. You must become your own mentor.

Peace begins with a pause,
