Learn to look inside yourself to regain self confidence during times of doubt. It’s an incredibly powerful & elegant tool.


Civility costs nothing and buys everything.—Lady Mary Worley Montagu


Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference. -Jane Goodall


When women outshine men in everyday appearance—neat, classy, pretty, prideful, and virtuous—they capture continuous manly attention. Just think! How many guys with higher standards pass you by because you don’t look good enough to catch their eye?


Perhaps it’s my age, but the world’s single greatest beauty is that of smiling females anytime, anyplace, and for whatever reasons.


For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

-Audrey Hepburn


I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. -Eleanor Roosevelt

Words of Wisdom No. 2

Purpose: shed light, help keep perspective, inspire, energize, or just make one think.

There is a reason why God puts certain people into your life. Even if they are only in your life for a moment, He has a plan! Have faith!



“…to be told you’re special is an incredible thing”



“Don’t aim to always be happy, embrace fully whatever the present moment contains. Acceptance and awareness are the beginning of transformation.”


Visualize the most amazing life imaginable to you. Hold the vision ten seconds and then place it in God’s hands. Now consider it done.



Wherever you are and whatever you’re going through, it’s the perfect opportunity to be your better self. THAT is your miracle.


Peace on the outside comes from knowing God on the inside.



Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be.



If you really want to open up your life & motivate yourself to succeed, become an optimistic thinker.

Do it, Anyway

These series of quotations, written by Dr. Kent Keith have long inspired me to strive to be a caring, forgiving, and loving woman – everything that a lady must possess.  Mother Teresa hung a version of this on the wall of Shishu Bhavan, the children’s home in Calcutta.

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;

forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

be kind anyway.

If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies;

succeed anyway.

If you are honest people may cheat you;

be honest anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

do good anyway.

and finally…

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the end, it is between you and God;

it was never between you and them anyway.
