"You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to start to be great."
You have to be secure in yourself. Have an unsound confidence that you too can play on their court and hold your position down and rank just as high as they can.
You too can reach the top.
"No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid."
"Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. " ~Khalil Gibran
It may sound cliche, but beauty really does start from within!!
Let’s Go! Have a good day TB!!!

1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
My guidance counselor gave me this quote on a sheet of paper back in high school and I’ve had it tapped on the side of my desk facing my bed ever since.
Playing small doesn’t help you and it definitely doesn’t help anyone else.
It’s okay to shine it can inspire others to do the same.
