1. What would you do if you weren’t afraid of judgment?
2. What if you found the courage to do what you really wanted to do and doing it changed your whole life?
Making a living that reflects your values and satisfies your needs is an achievement. It’s just rare, though.
Career choice is not as much about who you used to be, as it is about who you CHOOSE to be.
Your call. Your decision.
A school in Portugal posted this powerful message addressed to the parents of their students. The magic word is HOME. It is where learning begins.
Never make a decision when your emotions are high. Happy, sad, or disappointed, avoid it. Breathe, focus, and restore the calmness.
A sharp mind functions in a calm atmosphere like a beautiful swan swimming in a serene lake.
“If you have the courage to make it through a lonely night with nothing but your self-destructive thoughts to keep you company, then you have the courage to make it through anything.”
Don’t get stuck with the ghosts of yesterday and save yourself from pain and disappointment. Giving emphasis on what IS being done, thought, and felt at the moment rather than on what WAS would help.

MAGIC is something you make.
It is time to speak your TRUTH. Create your own community, be good to each other. Do not look outside of yourself for the leader.
There is a river now flowing very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel that they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its own destination. We must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water.
Now, see who is in there with you and CELEBRATE! 🎩✨

Grades don’t define you as a person. Yes, they are reflections of your performance that the imperfect system requires, but be reminded that it’s you, the student, who can tell best that you have learned. No one can take that away from you.
Grades are just numbers. What’s more important is the experience that you had. For all we know, learning is about LIVING through something. Again, no one can take that away from you.

In case nobody told you today, you are good enough.
“None of us is perfect. But we do our best because this house is worthy of our best. We trust our instincts as we fight our daily fights — some we’ll win, some we won’t, and some we’ll only know in time.
But we leave each night hopeful that today’s sacrifices have been worth it, that our instincts have not led us astray, and that our best has been good enough.”
-Kal Penn as Seth Wright in Designated Survivor
Whoever looks into the mirror will see first of all his own face. Whoever goes to himself risks a confrontation with himself.
The mirror does not flatter, it faithfully shows whatever looks into it; namely, the face we never show to the world because we cover it with the persona, our mask. We are actors.
Nothing is so apt to challenge our self-awareness and alertness as being at war with oneself.
One can hardly think of any other or more effective means of waking humanity out of the irresponsible and innocent half-sleep of the primitive mentality and bringing it to a state of conscious responsibility.

We are thrown into an existence that we did not choose. However, we are free to choose what we make of our lives.
Sometimes, people with the worst pasts end up creating the best futures for themselves. It’s not how you start but how you finish.
That has always been my philosophy.
Help me. I need it, too.
Help me spread the message that everyone is capable of changing to become a much better person.
I counsel, I transcend everything, and I help to restore what needs to be. Pray for me.
