“Believe in Yourself + A Tiny Bit of Magic = Your Dreams Can Come True.”

“Mind is everything.  Every thought you create manifests itself in real world; if you don’t achieve something you strive for – you simply didn’t believe in it enough.”    (Mario Novak)



“Cherish your solitude.  Take trains by yourself to places you have never been.  Sleep out alone under the stars.  Learn how to drive a stick shift.  Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something.  Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees.  Decide whether you want to be liked or admired.  Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here.”   (Eve Ensler)



“Kindness is the highest form of intelligence.  Negativity is poison and in all things we reap what we sow.  When you are negative without tempering such actions or attitudes with kindness, you create an environment ripe for the breeding of resentment and animosity, hurt feelings are the natural outcome.  The intelligence comes in when you realize that a kind word or action results in reciprocation, it opens the door to love and contentment.  Negativity and criticism may help to develop a thicker skin, but pressed too hard, the skin becomes stone, and have you ever tried to squeeze blood from a stone?”    (Unknown)



“Trust is the glue of life.  It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication.  It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.”     (Stephen R. Covey)



“If you believe in yourself and with a tiny bit of magic, all your dreams can come true.” (SpongeBob SquarePants)
