Favorite Quote:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

The ironies of life
lay hidden in the hearts of the victims of strife.
Perplexing to the eye,
just as the question how could this happen, better yet why.
Souls that have a story very well worth being told,
yet concealed pain, truth, and wisdom they hold.
Its the very heart that loves the most that is truly in need,
for they see everyone else but themselves indeed.
The irony in life's terrible situations,
lies hidden beneath one's first observation.
