“When we own our stories, we avoid being trapped as characters in stories someone else is telling.” - Brene’ Brown, clinical social worker, author, professor
If your friend writes a book about your life, what will it say? Then if you write your memoirs, how different will that book be compared to your
friend’s book about you? I think that the two books will have some similarities, and probably many differences. My hope is your book will have many happy moments, and minimal sad moments. Your story is still being written so own all your moments and write the best book you can.
“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.” - Leo Tolstoy
Are we dependent on nature, or is nature dependent on us? We take care of nature (defined as plants, animals, the landscape and all the other features of the earth and its products - anything that is not made by humans). In turn, nature provides us the resources to meet our basic, and not so basic, needs. We take care of our environment so nature and we can thrive. The link between humans and nature is vital for our happiness.
