“I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change…
I’m changing the things I cannot accept.”
-- Angela Davis
"Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.
I didn't have to become perfect because I've learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness."
—Janelle Monae, Singer, Rapper, and Actress
more light, more stillness,
more pondering, more
noticing, more poems, more
early mornings, more songs,
more exhales, more books,
more softness, more writing,
more daring, more mist,
more singing, more walking,
more patience, more
listening, more curiosity,
more messiness, more
remembering, more owls
more quiet, more simplicity,
more wondering, more
listening, more balance,
more adventures, more
wildness, more blooming,
more hoping, more time,
more things that have never
Mary Chapin Carpenter
“Passion is the log that keeps the fire of purpose blazing.”
As women, we have to start appreciating our own worth and each other's worth.
Seek out strong women to befriend, align yourself with, learn from, collaborate with,
be inspired by, support, and be enlightened by.
It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving,
but like morning light, it scattered the night and made the day worth living.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
