I love my life, and am taking it in the direction I want to go. My personal motto in life right now is stolen from Gandhi: "Be the change you want to see in the world." I combine this with the lyrics to John Lennon's song, Imagine, to describe the kind of world I want to see. This is what I am making my life about. I'd love to have a like-minded woman along for the ride.
Most people seem content to live inside the box that society and parents made for them. I want to live outside the box, and do. I may not be able to change the WHOLE world, but I can change MY world enough that my daily reality conforms more to my intentions than to the "default" positions of society/culture as a whole.
