  • Every time you suppress some part of yourself or allow others to play you small, you are in essence ignoring the owner's manual your creator gave you and destroying your design.

  • I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.

  • All these years I've been feeling like I was growing into myself. Finally, I feel grown.

  • Let your light shine. Shine within you so that it can shine on someone else. Let your light shine.

  • It is confidence in our bodies, minds and spirits that allows us to keep looking for new adventures, new directions to grow in, and new lessons to learn - which is what life is all about.

  • As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around.

  • I am a woman in process. I'm just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull.

  • If you want to accomplish the goals of your life, you have to begin with the spirit.

  • It isn't until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are - not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit within - that you can begin to take control.

  • I know for sure that what we dwell on is who we become.

  • In every aspect of our lives, we are always asking ourselves, How am I of value? What is my worth? Yet I believe that worthiness is our birthright.

  • What I know for sure is that what you give comes back to you.

  • What we're all striving for is authenticity, a spirit-to-spirit connection.

  • I've learned that you can't have everything and do everything at the same time.

  • If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.

  • Every time you state what you want or believe, you're the first to hear it. It's a message to both you and others about what you think is possible. Don't put a ceiling on yourself.
