I am willing to put myself through anything, temporary pain or discomfort means nothing to me as long as I can see that the experience will take me to a new level. The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be. We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present. Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people. When you forgive, you heal your own anger and hurt and are able to let love lead again. If you really want to fly, just harness your power to your passion.
So I decided to create a reminder for myself and all women, bringing together quotes that inspire, empower and remind us of how powerful we really are. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming….. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Don’t be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers. Whether we love, or close our hearts to love, is a mental choice we make, every moment of every day. If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. You take your life in your own hands, and what happens? You move totally away from reality when you believe that there is a legitimate reason to suffer. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor touched but are felt in the heart. I am interested in the unknown, and the only path to the unknown is through breaking barriers, an often painful process. The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water. Always concentrate on how far you have come, rather than how far you have left to go. The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present. The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.
