"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

More Points to Ponder

This is one of my favorite quotes. I have it posted right by my computer so I can read it often. Sometimes I need to be reminded that I have a quiet strength within me and that I should be proud of that strength. Women often forget how strong and wonderful they are because they are so busy taking care of the people in their lives.

Keep this quote close to remind yourself how wonderful you are! When you wake up in the morning, say out loud: " I AM AMAZING".   Because you are........

"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."
