My mind holds only what I think with God.
(131) No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.
(132) I loose the world from all I thought it was.

Explanation of Images: We blame our parents and society for not getting our childhood right. We blame our class status for our limited opportunity. Why did we have to get born a male, female, brown or pale faced? This is our life, uniquely ours, holy and whole. There is no way to compare it to another’s. We are oddly proud and guilty of our past and the choices we have made. We learn to appreciate the way we stumble through our lives. If we take a moment we can appreciate others in their journey as well. Some of us will be astronauts, princesses, and knights! We’ll be superheroes, mothers and teachers. It’s your story, let go of comparison and the guilt and resentment that comes with it. Be wholly you.
