as important as you thought you were.

or how important we believe we are.
Setting an example of being loving, relaxed and joyful,
regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.

without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.

rather than, "Never missed a day at the office."
