“I Shall Find A Way or Make One” was the ancient general Hannibal’s response when he was asked how he would cross a mountain range with elephants.

This quote means so much to me because it’s been the driving force throughout my life, both personally and professionally. Read more>>

A good friend of mine asked me this one day years ago & since then I live by it on a daily basis – “Why worry twice?” It’s fairly simple but to me it means, why put yourself through unnecessary stress until you actually have a reason to be stressed.

I am a visionary. With being that, I often live in the future by default but for good reasoning. I’m always thinking bigger, better, about longer term goals, you know?

I perceive it as being solid; not letting obstacles, issues, current circumstances or anything negative define my destiny or success ahead. It’s about believing in myself and what’s most definitely possible to achieve. It’s something great to look forward to, always. I’m not perfect and things aren’t always perfect but that’s the mindset I stand on. It’s a Pilar of hope & faith. Read more>>

“You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.” RUMI ~ then I proceed to make my personal affirmation ” I am enough, I am loved, I am supported, God is with me” I recite it every time at my shavasana meditation after my class. It means to me that no matter my environment, circumstances, or what others expect or say to me or about me, I have a purpose in life, I am meant to develop what my heart and mind envisions and I can’t sell short to life my aspirations, we are more than body and mind, we are lifters and gifts for others.
