Embracing your dreams, sharing your disappointments,

And loving you more because nothing less will do.

We spend too much time living in the ‘what if' and need to learn to live in the ‘what is.'

Some people drift through their entire life. They do it one day at a time, one week at a time, one month at a time. It happens so gradually they are unaware of how their lives are slipping away until it's too late.

Arthur Gordon

Arthur Gordon

Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid. In the past, whenever I had fallen short in almost any undertaking, it was seldom because I had tried and failed. It was because I had let fear of failure stop me from trying at all.

Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin.
