in response to this link: some words to live by
I am trying really hard to overcome - to be confident and have faith - because I have solid skills that I am proud of and that help people. That is what I'm moving forward with.

And also to not be afraid to do the things and 'get out' the creative energies that I keep bottled up that will die with me if I don't put them out in the world. That is all we have, our integrity, our families and our legacy, where we touch others even when we are gone.
