I want to be in a world where everyone truly loves themselves and knows that they matter.

I want to be open to every lesson that unfolds on my journey.

I want to be forgiving to my younger self for the things I didn’t know until I learned them.

I want to be aware each day of a way I can ease the suffering of another human being.

I want to be a part of healing our planet through meditation.

I want to be as thoughtful and funny as my daughter Michelle.

I want to be brave and humble.

I want to be in the conversation doing the important work of creating a world of equality and justice for all beings.
