While I am certain I am not the right woman for everyone, I know that I will be the right woman for someone special: a smart, passionate, active, funny, spirited man. I am intuitive without being only "right brained" and love learning about many many things without being only "left brained." I love my kids and my family I am passionate for my work, and am grateful for the AFOG moments that life gives us daily. Each offers lessons about love, friendship, ourselves, our values and direct our footsteps and behavior. I was raised in the south by Yankee liberal parents. A bit like being an orchid in a sea of mums. Different. Exotic. Unique. I will always be a big Pat Summit fan.
.“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, fabulous? 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 other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is 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.” M. Williamson
“It is not so incomprehensible as you pretend, sweet pea. Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard. It can be light as the hug we give a friend or heavy as the sacrifices we make for our children. It can be romantic, platonic, familial, fleeting, everlasting, conditional, unconditional, imbued with sorrow, stoked by sex, sullied by abuse, amplified by kindness, twisted by betrayal, deepened by time, darkened by difficulty, leavened by generosity, nourished by humor and “loaded with promises and commitments” that we may or may not want or keep.
The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to [live it to the fullest] .”
