Be not afraid I remind myself; there are always good folks to help you along the way. Release the past with gentle tears and embrace the future and the glory it has yet to unfold. When wisdom has been imparted to you, entrusted to you then you must use it well. Remaining true to our ideals as we grow older may be one of our greatest challenges; the causes you know to be noble in spite of the trends and the noise, teach what you can, listen when an ear is needed, speak when a voice can provide much needed guidance and above all share so your own table and gifts continue to overflow. Be happy within yourself and your achievements whether great or small; learn from the failures and quietly embrace the triumphs. Expect not perfection from your life or your presentations but knowingly share the gifts of your true being and soul.
