But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to
truth, whatever it might turn out to be. -- Alan Watts
- Hi Paul,
I like Ron's attitude - it fits the context.
Re- 'My' -
People who know me know I care about words
(as well as the ideas in Scrum, Agile, etc.)
'My', in your list, I see as falling into two contexts.
1. My - as part of you and only you - the first 3 or 4.
2. My - as you participate in along with others,
the rest of the list.
Some of these you own.
Some you can take pride in and perhaps defend.
And then there's My universe,
Is "The universe" is more appropriate? :-)
