Thanks for the reminder.

Great article Valeria, every point makes sense for so many circumstances. I had a thought while I was between point 6 and 7.
Sometimes the right route might appear in front of you, and all the miles that you've been

@Ivan - indeed, we have power over what we choose to do.

@Dave - I like to spend time with people who are positive, creative, leaning forward, and open to the ideas of others. If that means I'm that way, too... that's great!

@John - in context, of course. Sometime we take ourselves too lightly and give in to what others think instead of following our own advice and gut.

@Nikki - what you suggest also helps shift the focus from being too self-centered to be other-centered. Good observation.
