I could not save my sister any more than I can save you -- only you can do it for yourself, with or without the help of rehab, therapy, medication or a higher power. But I can be on your team on the road to recovery. It doesn't matter how many times you've tried before. Do it again. Do it for yourself.
What I've seen up to this point in time is that there is both good news and bad news when we see the truth about ourselves. The bad news is that when it gets right down to it, we don't control the universe; the good news is, we are the universe, already whole within ourselves and infinite in our creative potential.
Success is something that you are developed for daily. It is not that I have had more privileges than others. The thing that has set me apart is the decision to rigorously prepare for greatness. I am encouraging you to create a new definition of success. Here are a few of my rules for living an empowered life.
The bond we share is one of loss but it is also one of strength, courage, perseverance, and eventual, renewed living. I am certain -- given the choice -- each one of us would rather not have you walk amongst us, but since you are here, know that you have our spirit and example in which to hang onto throughout the entirety of your journey.
