    A few things on my mind are self-respect, kindness, skepticism, hope, and having a healthy and sensible dinner vision of where you want to end up. I suppose some of these might be more appropriate than others, but having a good idea of where you want to get to is probably the most critical thing, because if you have that, you can figure out how your life is different and begin developing some of the other qualities and factors that are inherent in that final vision.
    First inner well being. Knowing that all you are is all you have and not needing anything else to make you whole. Then comes experiencing the outside world. Activities, using the senses and interacting with others.

    The first is meaningless without the second, and the second is poorly perceived without the first.

    This is very true, for we start our personal development, our personal story, with our Mommy and Pappy.

    Then our story grows and develops, almost by itself. We are our Mommy and Pappy cast into the future. And no one can predict the future.
