Lesson #3040 - A Takeaway

I'm beginning to think maybe the reason why it feels like so many big figures have died in 2016 is because they're all people who best embraced that idea? Maybe I'm wrong. But that's the sense I've gotten from the major tributes over and over again this year. I personally haven't felt as affected by many of these individuals, but many of your reported impacts have felt pretty significant. Which in itself helps pass along the impact?

I'm not wording any of this well, but certainly with both George Michael and Carrie Fisher, the sense of being true/happy to oneself and doing good for others in their own ways / own ways of being has been the major sense I've gotten.

Take what you need to. At least let's make it something good and long-lasting if we can.
