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?' 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 others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's 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."
-Nelson Mandela

Tell me I'm funny.
Tell me I'm pretty.
Say that you like
When what I say is witty.

Don't buy me a bear.
Don't make my heart tear.
Don't waste my time
With your fervent prayers.

Just have me and hold me.
Just care for and keep me.
Just show that you're different.
Just show you'll be there.

That's how you'll prove it.
That's how you'll do it.
That's how you'll show me
Your love.
