Stay centered

            Remember who you are. Stay true to your values. Don’t sacrifice your core to the passing temptations or persuasions of the moment. Character is built and strengthened decision by decision and moment by moment. Who you are takes a lifetime to build and only a few seconds to destroy. Finishing well is far more important than starting well. Life is a marathon not a sprint. When you know who you are, you are prepared for those split second decisions that can make or break your life. Never give over control of your life to someone else. Never abandon who you are for the expediency of the moment.
