"One of my favorite quotes by Marcel Proust, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
"U never know when a part of urself that U deemed 2 B worthless will deliver the exact skill U need 2 make a difference 4 urself or another"
"Love ur courage for always being there, whispering in your ear. “There is a higher choice to be made, & U have the strength to choose it.”"
"No one can be a warrior for you. No one can make this choice but you."
"You can send e-mail to urself each day, or attach a note to ur phone to be reminded to take a moment to recommit to your intent. "
"The future can seem very mysterious & intangible until U recognize it as 1 of God’s gr8est tools 4 beckoning U 2 ur most magnificent self."
"Openhearted giving works hand in hand with faith and gratitude as we learn that if we give, we will also receive."
"Feel gratitude for all of your God-given gifts."
"Only when we stop pretending to be something we are not, will we know the freedom of expressing our authentic self."
Blessings and love to all in honor of #Hanukkah
"Everything is a mirror, you are seeing yourself & talking to yourself. What is your reflection showing?"

"When you are complete, you repeatedly discover a moment of pure perfection – the present moment."
"The Voice of Uncertainty’s dubious power comes from convincing U to turn away from your highest truth and succumb to the pain of the past."
"With great persuasiveness, fear disguises itself with the Voice of Uncertainty, filling you with worry, doubt, and even dread."
"But to do this, we must be willing to take an honest look at ourselves and step out beyond our judgmental mind."
"U must forgive urself 4 possessing all these human qualities & find a healthy respect & a healthy outlet 4 each & every aspect of urself."
"Your intent informs your behaviors, actions, choices, and words. It becomes your personal operating system."
