Because my planned post was botched due to Busy Mom duties 🙁 I decided to instead do what I will call, “A Friday of Phrases.” These are quotes from various well-known people that I have posted on my Facebook page. Just think of it as a great resource that you can print out and post somewhere or revisit to help you through the upcoming week. Enjoy!
“I was lucky in that I came to know that all the things I was trying to hide about myself were actually things to celebrate.”
~Actress Tracee Ellis-Ross
”Please find your calling and answer when it calls. If not life becomes a chasing after the wind.”
~Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders
”It is up to me and to you to empower ourselves enough to find whatever it is within our current situation that we can control, no matter how small it may be–and start there.”
~Author Chris Gardner
”Sometimes we…don’t reach for the stars–sometimes we stop and are satisfied with what people tell us we’re supposed to be satisfied with—but I’m just not going for it. I’m determined to set the example that it is possible.
“When you climb up steep mountains sometimes you scar your knee or break your skin. But don’t focus on the scars–focus on the journey. Focus on your destination, which is the top.”
~Rev. Al Sharpton
“….to achieve great things you have to stay focused and be clear about what you want. The only way to do that is to prioritize. That way you are clear about what you’re giving up, gaining, and what you will and won’t do.”
~Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith
