The Renaissance Experience
This holiday weekend is a weekend of remembrance. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Today is a day we honor Courage. Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is action in the face of fear. This is always a solemn day for me. As a veteran. I think of all the men and women who have served their country and all they sacrificed, their dreams, their youth, their lives. They did this to protect us, to protect the place and the people they love. I am forever grateful. We need to honor our Veterans' ultimate sacrifices by pursuing our dreams in the face of fear.

The quality of your life is determined by the habits you choose, good or bad. Many times our greatness is just over the horizon out of sight, though to see it we have to let go of the known and embrace uncertainty, and with it our true path, what we are meant to do, our genius.

There is one lone unopened present left under the tree. It does not have a name on it but you know who it belongs to. You are a little afraid to open it. Do you Dare? You remove the beautiful bow and brightly colored ribbon. You carefully remove the intricate patterned paper and fold it. You gently open the box. It is perfect. It is what you always wanted. It seems a bit self indulgent. It is the life you always wanted and deserve! It is possible to realize your dreams and have them waiting in a pretty little box all tied in bow. You simply have to start giving yourself a gift of growth every year. Indulge your mind, body, soul, and spirit. Enjoy!
