Things don’t always turn out the way we want, but that is the nature of this life adventure. I have no desire to become a ballerina or rocket scientist because that is not my capability. In my journey, I follow the feeling and guidance of my heart to achieve that which is fulfilling. This journey always takes me to unexpected places.
Banish the word failure and follow your dreams. All is possible. The universe is infinite and has the capacity to fulfill all your dreams and aspirations.
Know that your ability to appreciate the beauty of an ocean sunset makes you a success. Know that your ability to appreciate the music of the songbird makes you a success. Know that your ability to appreciate the soft caress of a lover makes you a success. You are a breathing, feeling, loving human.
If you are breathing you are succeeding. Be content in the awareness, appreciation and gratitude for the life you have been given. That is the secret to inner peace and contentment – the only success we really need
A day will come when you no longer blame others for your own inner turmoil and discontent.
That is the day you will find the path to inner peace, contentment and fulfillment.
That day will definitely come! Hopefully, sooner than later.
Turmoil and Peace are both within.
YOU choose !

On September 27, 2006, President George Bush signed into law the “Fourteenth Dalai Lama Congressional Gold Medal Act,” which authorizes Congress to award the Dalai Lama the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor.
Under this legislation, the United States Congress awards this honor “in recognition of his many enduring and outstanding contributions to peace, non-violence, human rights, and religious understanding.” The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest civilian honor bestowed by the United States.
