    Self love, self respect, and self worth. There is a reason why they all start with "self". You cannot find them in anyone else.

    When you recognize and acknowledge your personal power, you no longer need to feel superior or inferior to anyone else. -Deepak Chopra, M.D.

    Never regret a day in your life: good days give happiness, bad days give experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories. So keep dreaming...Without dreams, we reach nothing, without love, we feel nothing, and without God, we are nothing. Have a wonderful and blessed week ahead!

    Remember, the beautiful thing about setbacks is, they introduce us to our strengths.

    Always remember that the struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow so don't give up! Continue to believe in yourself and leave a little sparkle wherever you go. Stay encouraged!
