Moxie and Other Important Stuff We Need

I have people, real and imaginary, that I would like to emulate. Incorporating some of their traits into my own life.
For instance, Alice, from In Wonderland.
She has a lot of moxie  (vigor; verve; pepcourage and aggressiveness; nerveskill; know-how) for a little girl, and later as an adult, she became, ok, with being who she is.
And who can not want to be like Peter Pan?
I ask you!
Why,just look at him!

Picture found on google search

He can fly.
He believes in Fairies.
Fights pirates, and wins!
And, well, he has tons of moxie.
It oozes from him in copious quantities!
Wraps around him like a royal cloak.
Whispers in the very air around him.

Alice and Peter both accept themselves. While firmly letting others know where they stand,or fly, and steadily they stand in their self acceptance I might add.
Not all from a braggarts stance.
Maybe its better described as an air of belief in themselves.
After all to believe is to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right.

So, Alice from Wonderland, Peter Pan, and I, would like to encourage you to

I hope each of us, have the courage and confidence to take a mental and emotional stance, helping ourselves, and others, to make an all out attempt to succeed, using all the ingenuity, knowledge and experiences at our disposal. Although we may not have proof that what we are doing is absolutely right. May we act purposefully and without bragging.

Or if you prefer...

May you aggressively emulate, real and imaginary hero's and heroines in your life, using all available know-how, without implementing a braggarts stance.
