I first saw the Manifesto on Facebook after a particularly trying series of events with my second company. It was exactly how I had chosen to survive those events. It felt like someone had been inside my head for the previous month recording all of my thoughts. Creepy indeed. As life progressed I had fallen back into some day-to-day ruts and forgotten the passion behind the Manifesto. And then, when I needed it the most, it re-appeared via Fab.com. I bought it immediately, framed it, and it now hangs in my kitchen where I see it everyday on my way out. It continually reminds me to focus on what I am passionate about and not to let ANYTHING get in the way of that. More importantly… I have now shared its message and meaning with my 8-year old daughter. I hope for her to grow up with this Manifesto firmly ingrained so that her life can be better for her than any of us could possibly have imagined. Thank you Holstee for your generosity in sharing this with the world.
