You have everything you need to get whatever it is you want. Nothing and no one can stop you. It removes all limitations of time, finance and doubt. It reminds me that I possess the ability to change my life every opportunity God allows me to wake up and that I have the same chances as anyone else with my 24 hours. I just have to make the choice to be the change I want to see in my life. Read more>>

Audrey Hepburn once said, “Nothing is impossible; the word itself says ‘I’m possible.’” In my senior year of high school, my guidance counselor told me I was dreaming of being a black girl and that I needed to be realistic. That same day, I came across Audrey’s quote, and I not only say it, but I live by it. The quote simply says that it is okay to dream big because your dreams could soon be your reality, which I love about it the most. Nothing is impossible; as long as you have dedication and drive, you can literally do anything you want to do. The only thing getting in the way of your success and making things “impossible” is yourself. Read more>>

Passion is the universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless. -Honore De Balzac I love this quote because I can always tell when someone is passionate about something. I think being passionate about what you’re doing makes the difference. When people see me on stage I wouldn’t want them to question whether or not I love what I’m doing. It’s the driving force for my career and hopefully my future success. Read more>>

What we don’t know is keeping that all in can cause stress, cause you to be depressed and so much more. At a point we have to start letting those things out so that we can keep our mental and physical health in tact. This quote means letting the world see that even though you are not at your best at times, it’s ok Read more>>

My favourite affirmation is ‘Just start’, it’s something my mom used to say to me whenever she noticed I would start to procrastinate. Now I say it myself. Lets face it we are all guilty of procrastination from time to time, but once you just start the resistance falls away. Over the years I often have people say “how did you manage to do…?” or “how do you do it with four children?” Read more>>

I love a good quote! I probably have thousands stored on my phone in my notes, photo library, and Twitter drafts! My favorite and probably the most impactful thus far for me is actually a portion of a poem my mother gave me a copy of when I started high school. The poem is called Invictus, written by William Ernest Henley. My favorite quote would be the final two lines of the piece: “I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul.” Read more>>
