Here are a few words of wisdom from a woman who spent her whole life trying to know herself and to be comfortable in her own skin: “Fear is stupid. So are regrets.” “We should all start to live before we get too old.” “I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and, at times, hard to handle.

A Buddhist Tip to Being Free Link to Elephant journal I love it when an article just speaks to me. This article sort of echos my brain when it comes to my plans for the next year.
