While life has had its major challenges lately, I am reminded of a favorite quote, which renewed my spirit:

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

– Winston Churchill

When your body gets tired and the world has given you a royal beat down, let your heart carry you forward.   Decide to rise above it, knowing, that we are defined by our attitude when we have everything and our patience when we have nothing.  I refuse to live in the darkness while my true essence is luminous, it is time to let it out. I wish to walk in the light and be loved for all of me, every part. Emily Dickinson wrote, “Forever is composed of nows.”  Now is what matters, now is the time and now it will be brighter than ever before. ❤




* The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.

* Never underestimate the power of a woman’s intuition!

* Life is ironic. It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence and absence to appreciate presence.

* I’m not pale it’s called porcelain, and I’m rocking it.

* There is a special place in my heart for the ones who were with me at my lowest and still loved me when I wasn’t very lovable. This type of unconditional love is rare, when you find it, fight for it.

* I may not be your first love, first kiss, or first date. . . but I want to be your last everything. ❤


* It is never too late to be who you want to be

* Taking extra time to put on makeup and do your hair really does make you feel better about yourself… and life in general

* A man who loves you will listen to your needs and do his best to try and meet them

* Handwritten notes/cards are a lost art & very special

* God can turn any situation into a blessing

* A bouquet of my favorite flowers will probably always mean more to me than diamonds… minus that one very special diamond
