Kind words truly are uplifting!


Hurt people, hurt people. That's how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else's life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. —Steve Jobs
Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education. —Martin Luther King, Jr.

You cannot talk about grit—you have to embody it.
You cannot talk about faith—you have to live it.
You cannot talk about the desert—you have to cross it. —Dr. Dragos Bratasanu
Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself. —Roy T. Bennett
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. —Henry van Dyke
I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that. —Lauren Bacall
