    We oscillate between ‘holding on’ and ‘letting go’, between our desire to rigidly clutch the past and the impulse to rush exuberantly into the future.
    “Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.” ~Dalai Lama

    • 2. Principle No. 2 – Find outlets to expose the talents you have “People don’t change that much. Don’t waste time trying to put in what was left out. Try to draw out what was left in.
