The ABC's of Life...U is for Unlimited

"You are everything that is...your thoughts, your dreams come true. You are everything you choose to be. You are unlimited as the endless universe." ~Shad Helmstetter

"In the name of the best within you, do not sacrifice this world to those who are its worst. In the name of the values that keep you alive, do not let your vision of man be distorted by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved his title. Do not lose your knowledge that man's proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours." ~Ayn Rand
To paraphrase the lyrics of a song from Wicked (one of my all-time favorite musicals)...defy gravity! Don't accept limits, just because someone says they're so. Some things you can't change, but until you try you'll never know. Trust your instincts. Everyone deserves the chance to fly...just close your eyes and leap!
