Inspire to Aspire

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Judy Garland

The hardest battle you’re ever going to fight is the battle to be just you.
Leo Buscaglia

A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
Eleanor Roosevelt

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. You are the one who’ll decide where to go.
Dr. Seuss

All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt Disney

I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am.
Sylvia Plath

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Eleanor Roosevelt

You do not have to be your mother unless she is who you want to be.
You do not have to be your mother’s mother’s mother, or even your grandmother’s mother on your fathers side.
You may inherit their chin or their hips or their eyes, but you are not destined to become the women who came before you.
You are not destined to live their lives.
So if you inherit something, inherit their strength, their resilience.
Because the only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
Pam Finger

And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.
Will Rogers

You were born an original. Don’t die a copy.
John Mason
