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

The journey is the dream.
When I fly with the birds,
When I ride on the wings of the wind,
Soaring far above the earth
I feel free;
Without tether and without bond,
With only the clouds standing in my way
As towers, strongholds
Of all that which remains below;
But on top of the clouds,
There is no rain, no sorrow, no hindrance.
All I can see
Is the sun, the sky, and my path
Laid out before me.
