All too often, we stop short of our greatness and decide instead to blend with the crowd, lying to ourselves that we can accept personal mediocrity in exchange for “belonging.”
By staying angry at someone for some real or perceived slight, it simply drains us of our joy and precious energy that we could be directing towards more meaningful pursuits.
You can't take everything and everyone with you during a season of change, particularly if it's going to hamper your progress.
I am confident that as I move through the years, I am exactly where I'm supposed to be at all times, so long as choose to dance through life rather than sit it out.
The intellect, compassion, bravery and acceptance that we seek to find doesn't exist over some distant rainbow.
It's okay to honor your worth, walk away and start over.
Be observant. Be vigilant, But do not be afraid.
At all of five months old, my nephew is already schooling me on life.
My mother's spirit is as vibrant, feisty and genuine as ever. I've seen her incredible work ethic pay off. I've witnessed her confidence shatter its already sky-high level. I've been the gracious recipient of her love, direction and protection for over half of her life. I've seen my mom evolve into the absolutely incredible woman she is today.
For the record, she looks damn good too.
