“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Remember, they have no vested interest in you if they don’t know the real you or understand your capabilities! Keep on being you, there’s no one else in the world like you.
“Whether one is rich or poor, educated or illiterate, religious or nonbelieving, man or woman, black, white, or brown, we are all the same. Physically, emotionally, and mentally, we are all equal. We all share basic needs for food, shelter, safety, and love. We all aspire to happiness and we all shun suffering. Each of us has hopes, worries, fears, and dreams. Each of us wants the best for our family and loved ones. We all experience pain when we suffer loss and joy when we achieve what we seek. On this fundamental level, religion, ethnicity, culture, and language make no difference.” ~ Dalai Lama

Want To Be Outstanding? Wear Confidence
“It’s not about what size you wear. It’s about how you wear your size.”
You can be a size 2 and be totally uncomfortable in the clothes you wear. Likewise, you can be a size 22 and be completely at ease in your attire.
Being comfortable in your skin is the first step to confidence. Let your confidence be the determining factor in how you present yourself to the world. When you are able to confidently let your true self shine through, appearance becomes secondary.
Have a nice Thursday!!
“May you rest in the space of “good enough.” You are good. You are enough. You are sufficient in this moment, just as you are. You deserve goodness and kindness and hope and help. This is my wish for you. ~Nanea Hoffman, Sweatpants & Coffee
There are no other words to add here except ditto! Have a blessed day.
“I am strong, because I’ve been weak. I am fearless, because I’ve been afraid. I am wise, because I’ve been foolish.” ~Anonymous
End this week on a positive note. Believe in yourself and don’t let anyone diminish you or your story. You are a warrior who must think of your struggles as the resistance that will increase your strength. No matter the battle formulate a plan, stoke your ferociousness, face it, then fight to the finish. You will come out on the other side a conqueror.
Have a very nice weekend!
“You! Yes you
The one reading this.
You are beautiful, talented,
amazing and simply the best at being you.
NEVER FORGET THAT.”

Have a Wonderful Weekend!
“Blindness has made it much easier to be silent which is my nature. I do not have all the distractions sighted people have forced upon them. I could easily create distractions for myself with the radio or television but then the opportunity for introspection would be missed.” ~Mel Scott, Founder, www.blindalive.com
Blind Alive is the Eyes-Free Fitness, well-described audio workouts designed for the blind and low vision community. “Our goal is to eliminate the obstacles that stand between you and good health.”
