“If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life, as in hoping for another life, and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.”
— Albert Camus
Have you taken ownership of your life?
When we own our lives, we accept what we’ve inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. We also lay claim to our right to create new conditions if we’re not happy with what’s come before. We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. We acknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey.

“Recognize that life is what you get when you’re born … living is what you do with it.”
— Jim Allen
“It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.”
— Diane Ackerman
