Today I would love to share with you just a little bit of inspiration as you go about your daily business, keep these words below in mind and see what comes up for you. When you gain that inner confidence and you actually enjoy your own company, being alone is empowering. You can just be who you are, not who you think others might like you to be. Become comfortable in your own skin!
~ You Alone are Enough. You have Nothing to Prove to Anybody ~
Though I did not know her personally, Dr. Maya Angelou has given me some of life’s greatest gifts ~ creativity, joy, and inspiration personal freedom and adventure!
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?
You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.
A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
If growing up is painful for the Southern Black girl, being aware of her displacement is the rust on the razor that threatens the throat.
I speak to the Black experience, but I am always talking about the human condition — about what we can endure, dream, fail at and survive.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.
Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.
My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.
Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.
I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.
Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
If you get, give. If you learn, teach.
You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot–it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.
I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
The main thing in one’s own private world is to try to laugh as much as you cry.
When I am writing, I am trying to find out who I am, who we are, what we’re capable of, how we feel, how we lose and stand up, and go on from darkness into darkness. I’m trying for that. But I’m also trying for the language. I’m trying to see how it can really sound.
All great artists draw from the same resource: the human heart, which tells that we are all more alike than we are unalike.
If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.
Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.
