“I had to grow to love my body. I did not have a good self-image at first. Finally it occurred to me, I’m either going to love me or hate me. And I chose to love myself. Then everything kind of sprung from there. Things that I thought weren’t attractive became sexy. Confidence makes you sexy.”

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
Stacey Charter

Quotes February 14, 2020

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Dueteronomy 31:6
 
 
 
 
“I am a flawed person. A brook with many stones, a clear blue sky with many blackbirds. I have many shortcomings. A rainbow that’s not long enough, a starry night with clouds. But I can only be thankful to the God who loves me just this way, and I can only be grateful to the people in my life who accept the clear blue sky with many blackbirds and who are patient with the rainbow that isn’t long enough.”
C. JoyBell C.
 
 
 
 
Cradle to grave, there is one thing I have no one can ever take. No evil, no theft, no murder, no family, friend or loved one… no one can take God from me. He is the key to my happiness. The more people take from me, the more joy I have in God. What an incredible gift!

In every struggle, talk to Him like a friend. See how much He wants your joy. And how, though He does not orchestrate your pain, He will use what darkness brings and flood it with light. In doing so, He gives you ultimate freedom. How can you live in fear when you know there is nothing beyond the scope of what He can bring goodness to. It’s truly awe inspiring.
Taya Kyle

Neil Gaiman
 
 
 
 
New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
