People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.

"To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all...that is genius...
A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within, more than the luster of the firmament of bards and sages.
Yet he dismisses without notice his thought, because it is his. In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Through my years of pain, I've learned that moments are so precious. Time is irreplacable and people glorify and prioritize so earthly. I've learned that it's the most humbling thing in the world, though untangible. I love time, it does many things. But it's as dangerous as it is wonderful. I love this quote:

“If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything.” - Win Borden

“Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.”

"what lies before us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us"

a good friend of mine at work told me Jesus says...."it's okay to come totally apart, i put you together once and i can do it again."


"practice being positive in each situation that arises even if whatever is taking place at the moment is not so good, expect God to bring good out of it."

If you are a survivor, it means you have strength. Always see yourself as a survivor and not a victim. Believe in yourself that you have the strength and ability to move forward with your life. You want to get to a stage where the past does not affect your everyday life. As a child who was abused, you had no choice what happened to you. As an adult you do have a choice and you can choose which path you take - a path towards negativity, destroying yourself as a person, continually blaming yourself and putting yourself down - or you can choose a path towards healing and recovery. Learning to like and love yourself, praise yourself, value yourself, take the blame and guilt off your shoulders, be positive, start to achieve what you want to achieve in life, move towards happiness, love, fulfillment. The choice is yours.
