She said,

"In this world there are "wants" and there are "needs" Want all you want in one hand. Put your "needs" in the other hand. "Want's are like "crap." Shite in one one hand and express your desires in the other. See which one gets full first."

I have found that my two great needs from life are joy and peace. I have found that I can work towards and reclaim both of those; I have found that done in the right way, working towards joy and peace can be their own joyful and peaceful experiences.

As I work towards these goals I find that almost anything I "want" that is really important is already included in my effort to secure my needs. And those things that aren't included aren't really that important after all.

Much love,

Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
