I received an email message on my phone from a business associated and I supported him to achieve his goals this year - I am a mentor.

And so forth….
We live in a world where we are required to fulfill many, many roles within 12 hours. This is only a small glimpse into my life. There are millions of people doing much more and achieving greatness. For example single parents, having full time jobs and raising children.
Contemplating this I realise we are humans, we are wonderful, complex and magnificent, yet fragile. We are glorious creations experiencing our lives. We take our advancement as a specie for granted. Simply by looking at all the tasks we fulfill each and every day, I realise that we are simply superb, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, you are simply superb, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Acknowledge yourself for all that you are.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
