15: I live boldly... I seize life with an open mindset knowing that my true potential is unknown; believing that it is impossible to foresee all the triumphs I can accomplish with years of passion, toil, and training. I view my basic qualities as only starting points so there is no reason to hide deficiencies or surround myself with only those who will shore up my self esteem. Instead, I seek out and embrace people and life challenges that will stretch and encourage me to become all I am called to be. I will wrap each moment in passion. I will cherish every breath. I will learn from every experience and from every person I meet. I will seize the day!
