One important thing I've learned while living in England is the importance of a personal anchor. This anchor is something in yourself, something that defines you, something you would not be you without. When going through tough times, your anchor is one of your best defences, a source of comfort, a compass. Discover it, if you don't already know. Claim it, if you haven't. Whether it is your compassion, your curiosity, your cup of tea, bind it fast to the centre of yourself and be prepared to sink it in deep when the need arises. Decide that even if you are marching toward death, you march with this: you will go to death curious, go with concern for those around you, go without spilling a drop. There is more bravery in the centre of yourself than you know.
