“We’re not very different from other people, but those differences are very important.” –Gretchen Rubin

Deep in our guts we want happiness, success, equality, good health, comfort, and respect. We seek love and purpose as answers to life’s elusive questions.

While many things are universal among us, we’re largely different in varying degrees—in aspirations, beliefs, values, and idiosyncrasies.

And these fine lines matter. Because then we know who we are; we know where we stand. We only have to make a decision to make that line stand out.

If we have a policy of awareness and metrics towards our actions—a developing intimacy with who we are now and where we want to go—we’re better equipped to honing our values, eliminating those that don’t help, discovering new interests, and becoming a better version of ourselves.
