#1) "There's been so many assumptions made about me. And they got approval cos I never addressed them. I realise that Communication kills Assumption! Think about it, People can't read your mind. So you have to Learn to say what's on your mind. After bottling up so much pain, I figured Expression was the right release.
#2) "Oh! I'm not perfect. But I'll be damned if I let someone hold me to my past mistakes....I'm learning to Embrace being a work in progress. Every day I get a little wiser, a little better and a little stronger. It might like just a little but at least I'm not where I used to be"
#3) "So we had absolutely good Chemistry, Tiger and I. And yes! Having Chemistry with a gorgeous man is great, but eventually a relationship needs to move out of the laboratory...and into the real world where challenges will test its components. I would know right? I studied chemistry...Hehehe. "
#4) "Just before my metamorphic transformation from Timid Girl to Woman. I told myself straight up, no bullshit. Hot Penis aside, I won't let the girl I USED to be hold me back from becoming the woman I'm MEANT to be. And that's how I flipped that Page. Goodbye Ignorance, Welcome Presence of Mind.
#5) "Geez, I made a lot of mistakes. From letting myself be the back pocket girl, to not being vulnerable enough to reveal who I really was inside and what I truly wanted for myself. But I also know that Mistakes have to be made for you to find your way. Some of the most imperfect journeys create the most beautiful destinies...."
#6) " Oh People have left some downright merciless scars on me....still I remind myself often that Forgiveness doesn't make the other person right, but it makes you free girl! And no one can take away that freedom from me. Aye! That's why I'm quick to forgive them. I may not always FORGET, but at least I forgive their sorry butts and take back my friggin' power."
#7) "Even though at the time, he did say he loved me. But clearly I'm the kind of woman who pays more attention to action than words. Did he love me or did he love her? It wasn't adding up joor...I mean, when a man is truly into a woman, he always makes a way. There's no mountain high enough or valley low enough to keep him away from winning her heart."
#8) "So I said, you know what Alex? Stop chasing people who require being chased around. If someone is a good catch, believe me....they will want to be CAUGHT. Hahahah. That's right?!
#9) "I stopped worrying about other people's opinions of me. God never told us to impress people, only to love them! So I stopped trying to get validation from others. And I started speaking my truth. Why? Because it hurts to bite my tongue all the time.
#10) "We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us from. As I got stripped all the way, I learned there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel INSECURE around me. Which is why I decided for me to even get better, I needed to get away from the noise, and surround myself with real people who are better, smarter, kinder. So I could raise my standards of what is truly possible."
