The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains. Mere quotes won’t change your life, but they can change your perspective and your day. Because even though we have bad days, it’s not a bad life at all. If you can’t make it better, you can laugh at it – Erma Bombeck. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.
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.

A very confident and happy child turned into a rebellious, angry teenager who couldn’t see how amazing and wonderful she was and would never have believed it even if you told her. It took years of being a grown up to get that confidence and self worth back but there are still days that I get caught up in challenging situations and forget.
If you don’t like being a doormat then get off the floor.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
