It is the Only Truth

I came across this quote by Kristin Reiter of Nike and I appreciate the focus and complete ownership of responsibility that is expressed.

“I am not a guru and should never be positioned as such. The only truth I can claim with any certainty is that I myself am the designer of my life and I myself am responsible for the entirety of it. The world that I live in is a product of my perception. I freely admit that I don’t have the answers to anything else in life. It is the only truth.”

– Kristin Reiter


Resolution for 2015: What good shall I do this day?

“O powerful Goodness! Bountiful Father! Merciful Guide!
Increase in me that wisdom which discovers my truest interest.
Strengthen my resolutions to perform what that wisdom dictates.
Accept my kind offices to thy other children as the only return in my power for thy continual favors to me.”

– Benjamin Franklin

This was our fourth trip to Paris and the city never seems to fail in showing us new moments of beauty, despite the fact that we spent half the time retracing previous paths. Similar to our last trip, the constant recurring theme of our discussions as we walked through the city was that this has now become an easy, relaxing, and comfortable experience in “our second home.” There was no pressure to fill an itinerary – just leisurely days of long meals, visiting old favorite spots, and discovering new areas during moments of flâneur.
