“I’m great! Can’t complain. Kind of hard for me to ever have a bad day.”
“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you.”
What is the most liberating thought you’ve ever had? “Everyone is too busy worrying about their own problems to notice yours. No one is looking. Go forth and conquer.”
What does it mean to live a good life? “To love and forgive unconditionally.”
All that will be left of us is how we made others feel. That is our legacy. And we are creating it now.
“Don’t give up. Obstacles and problems are just unsolved lessons in your life. You’re whole and healing. You are enough.”
What does it mean to live a good life? “To find the comfort zone, only to break it. To eat good food with good people. To have conversations that are hard but necessary.”
All that will matter is that you have loved and that you have been loved — truly. To see your very self in another, and to be loved by that person or those people — that is a good life.

What does it mean to live a good life? “To find one’s calling and put it to work.”
What illusion have you suffered from the most? “That everyone thinks the same way I do.”
