"The meaning of life is to give life meaning."
-- Ken Hudgins

When we own our lives, we accept what we've inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. We also claim our right to create new conditions if we're not happy with what's come before. We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. We acknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey. In short, we embrace the meaning and purpose, the mystery and the beauty of our lives.

Do you feel that you own your life at the moment?

I think to own one's own life must ultimately mean true contentment: Self-knowledge and self-awareness without selfishness. A rare and evasive quality to possess though, not easily attained.
