Be brave enough to suck at something new.

We can’t solve our problems with the same thinking that created them.

Everything happens in phases. And the phases will always pass, good or bad. So, ride out the bad ones and cherish the good ones!


“Long story short, I survived.” It helps me forget about all the little things – the aches and pains and weight gain and everything else cancer stole from me.

And for my daughter, I always remind her that my motto for her is “Though she be but little, she is fierce” by Shakespeare. She is small / short for her age but she is a firecracker! When she doubts herself, this is what I remind her.


In my ear, “You are not strong enough to withstand the storm.”

Today, I whispered in the devil’s ear, “I am the storm.”

The Right Words

You will find the right words

Just you wait and see

They’ll be falling from the rooftops

On a blossom covered breeze

And the song you need to hear

It will be singing through the trees

Are you listening?

Don’t you see?

You are on the right path

You will realize

The tears are there to leave you

With a brighter pair of eyes

And the pain that you’ve been fighting

Is an angel in disguise

it is love

And love is wise

Throw your heart into the ocean

Throw your heart into the sea

You will find that all the right words

Just come out naturally

There’s still time to notice,

Still time to believe

That a door at last will open where doubt and

Darkness used to be

And that the paradise you long for

It’s underneath your feet

Whatcha runnin for?

Where’ve you been?

Throw your heart into the ocean

Throw your heart into the sea

You will find that all the right words

Just come out naturally

“The tears are there to leave you with a brighter pair of eyes”, “Still time to believe that a door at last will open where doubt and darkness used to be”

Ugh I just love the whole song. It’s just a reminder to a) stop and smell the roses and b) stop doubting yourself.


people will love you,

People will hate you

And none of it will have anything to do with you.

Anna Maria

You reap what you know.


If you want something, go get it.

You’ll never know if you don’t try.

Work hard, play hard.

live in the moment

Tomorrow is another day.

Let in go, let it go… that one might be from Frozen.


Learn to let go of the things you can not control or change.


Tomorrow is a new day. You can start fresh.


Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get.

Life is a book, Some people choose the highway, Some choose the scenic route. It doesn’t make it good or bad…just different.


You choose what you don’t change.


How people treat you is, often, a reflection of how they feel about themselves.

Anna Maria

This too shall pass.

And my all-time fav: Fake it till you make it.
