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

Listen son and you may hear
The things I have to say.
Incline your ear to my teachings
Note well these things this day.

Be kind to those around you;
Love, and never hate.
Be still before your temper
Blows up and it's too late.

When you make mistakes don't worry;
It will turn out just fine,
But be sure to fix it duly,
And don't wait a very long time.

Liston son and hear me
When you find a wife and den.
Heed my words and wisdom,
And be wiser than other men.

I love you now and forever,
I'll love you always, true.
Just heed my words and wisdom,
And I'll never be far from you.
