“The trouble is, you think you have time.” (Buddha) To me it doesn’t really mean “Live today like it is your last day” but rather that I have to fill every day of my life with good thoughts and decent actions so I don’t have regrets tomorrow. Be human, brave, optimistic, show compassion and kindness, take necessary risks, be happy. You might not have another chance. This is what the quote means to me. The more I think about it the more confident I become in making everyday decisions. Read more>>

“Only the strong survive” I honestly got the concept from my favorite basketball player, Allen Iverson. I know where the quote is said to have derived from, but I made it my own. To me, it’s simple, one must show strength even at their weakest moments. Through experience I have come to an understanding that all things are possible, if you stick with the process. I believe that our thoughts are extremely powerful and strength is mental before it is anything else. Read more>>

This message is especially meaningful as she was reaching out and telling me that I no longer needed to “fit” into someone else’s expectation of what they thought I should be. The words resonate with me, as I believe we are meant to help humanity move forward by opening up to expanded consciousness with compassion and love. Read more>>
