I seek to find serenity and tranquility in a world we do not always understand. The pain and the conflicts experienced have given me strength to walk through life facing each new situation with optimism and courage. I know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there even when I'm alone. I am not concerned with material matters, but instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in the heart. I seek time in each day to see the beauty/love in the world and realize that each person has limitless abilities, but each of us is different in our own way. I have enough inner strength to determine my own worth by myself, and not be dependent on another's judgments of my accomplishments. I love being romantic and having someone who can take a bad situation and make it into a wonderful memory. As Gandhi said: "Be the change you want to see!" That's my reminder that while I cannot change the entire world, I can change my little section of it!
