I let it go. It's like swimming against the current.
It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are,
you just have to let go, and the river brings you home.

I don't even have to be myself,

being myself. I am inescapably myself.

The best day of your life is the one on which 
you decide your life is your own. No apologies 
or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.

The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - 
and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.
This is the day your life really begins.

~ Bob Moawad

to rejoice greatly in the good of others,
to love with such generosity of heart that your 
love is still a dear possession in absence or unkindness
--- these are the gifts which money cannot buy.
