If you don't try, you certainly have no hope of success.

“Personal transformation isn’t always comfortable. Often it is even painful, but that’s okay. It is partly the pain of this internal voyage that changes you. As you leave your mark on your work, it leaves its mark on your consciousness, and on your heart. You leave some things behind, take some things with you, and hopefully share some things with others along the way, even if only stories. This is the way... You cannot cross the sea by merely standing on the shore and looking at it.”
Robert Herd

She who conquers herself is the mightiest warrior.

"As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave. With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior." ~Dan Millman

"Dear Heavenly Father,
Sometimes I’m not entirely sure where You’re leading me or what Your plan is. I’m battling fear of the future, and I worry about what others will think. But, I trust that You gave me gifts I am meant to use, even if that means starting small, where I am, with what I have. I trust You have a plan for how my gifts will unfold and serve the world. I’m here, with hands wide open, ready to show up with what You’ve given me, right now, right here, in my own unglamorous, totally divine, everyday life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen."
