To Thine Own Self Be True

"To thine own self be true." "Live the life you were

Joe had a love of the outdoors; but like his father, he
became addicted to his work. Though he built up a
successful law practice, Joe felt creatively stifled
and inwardly desolate. One day Joe was diagnosed
with an inoperable brain tumor. Realizing he had

and hike the Pacific Crest trail. Six months later, the

Why not start off with the right fit? Acknowledge
your unique gifts and talents, as well as your wants
and needs. Then seek out situations and
circumstances that will allow them their full
expression. This route may take time, but the results
are worth it: a life of peace and fulfillment that
comes from being true to yourself.
