They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I breathe in, I am breathing in the laughter, tears, victories, passions, thoughts, memories, existence, joys, moments, and the hues of the sunlight of many tones of skin.  I am breathing in the same air that was exhaled by many before me.  The air that bore them life.  And so, how can I ever say that I am alone?
