Never apologize for how you feel.

“Never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are.” 

-Iain S. Thomas

Know who you are.

“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”

– Michelle Obama

Always do your best.

“Do the best you can in every task, no matter how unimportant it may seem at the time. No one learns more about a problem than the person at the bottom.” 

– Sandra Day O’Connor

Fearlessly follow your dreams.

Do not lower your dreams and aspirations to match your current reality. Upgrade your vision to match your expectations.

-Anisha Henry

Shed and keep shedding.

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

-Maya Angelou

Be the light.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

Just jump!

“Eventually, you are going to have to jump. You cannot just exist in this life. You have got to try to live.”

-Steve Harvey

Don’t let them.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

-Eleanor Roosevelt

Only you can do it.

“No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips”

-Lyric from “Unwritten”

There’s no need to hide.

“I don’t want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. NOTHING.”

-Alicia Keys
