Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough
I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
Every action, thought and feeling is motivated by an intention, and that intention is a cause that exists as one with an effect. If we participate in the cause, it is not possible for us not to participate in the effect. In this most profound way, we are held responsible for our every action, thought, and feeling which is to say, for our every intention…it is therefore, wise for us to become aware of the many intentions that inform our experience, to sort out which intentions produce which effects, and to choose our intentions according to the effects that we desire to produce.
You did the best you could, the best you knew how at the time. It was something like that. From Oprah on an Oprah show. Then I believe my quote above was from Maya Angelou on the Oprah show, not Oprah herself. I had heard it before but it was on Oprah's show again 1-7-09 and she said Maya had said it.
We should no longer allow a mother to be defined as just a mom. It is on her back that great nations are built. We should no longer allow any woman's voice to be drowned out or disregarded. As we affirm other women, and as we teach our sons, husbands and friends to hold them in the highest regard, we honor both the mothers whose shoulders we've stood on and the daughters who will one day stand tall on ours.
Everyone wants to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
It isn't until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are - not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit within - that you can begin to take control.
Don't back down just to keep the peace. Standing up for yourself builds self confidence and self esteem.
I would like to thank the people who've brought me those dark moments, when I felt most wounded, betrayed. You have been my greatest teachers.
As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around.
Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.
Eating more consciously now feels like a way of being. I actually think about how my food got to my plate.
Say Thank You because your faith is so strong that you don't doubt that what ever the problem, you'll get through it. You're saying thank-you because you know that even in the eye of the storm, God has put a rainbow in the clouds.
Gratitude can transform any situation. It alters your vibration moving you from negative energy to positive
There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born. And how you become most truly alive.
As long as other people's opinions matter more than your own, you're owned by them. You're not even free.
I believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn’t been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn’t have been lucky.
