Be you, my child.
Love, with all your heart.
Trust. Be trustworthy.
Set your standards real high.
You’ll see emotions and principles on barter in the name of success, fame or money.
And don’t lose faith.
Know that every Hero who’s on display needs someone
You be that person – that ‘someone’.
Listen objectively, speak your mind, do not judge, never betray.
No matter what.
That takes immense strength of character.
And soon, without even realizing it, you become your own Hero.
Not the one on public display.
Nor the one that’s surrounded by frenzied fickle fans.
Nor the one who’s paid the price to a point of no return
You become that Hero who stays true to himself.
The real one.
Against all odds.
Being promoted means important people see you.
They expect you to deliver.
Fear of failure. Cold as ice.
The deadlines are impossible
They don’t even like me
I am stupid
Christine said, ‘Woman, wear your Red Dress’
No more excuses.

Attended theater, learnt salsa.
She found out it was a matter of choice.
To live, laugh, be happy.
Even when alone
