* Deep friendships attended to with the people you trust
* A clear sense of purpose
* Acceptance of the world as you find it
* Enough rest
* Facing directly the fears and challenges by planning in small steps
* Conscious, enthusiastic immersion in life's experiences - all of them - from the daily and boring through the peaks and canyons
* And once in a while a sabbatical to renew the foundation and architecture that makes your life your own.
