It's not vanity to feel you have a right to be beautiful. Women are taught to feel we're not good enough, that we must live up to someone else's standards. But my aim is to cherish myself as I am. [Elle Macpherson]
Seems quite odd to quote a supermodel, but there you go. Everyone has something to share. And anyone can BE a teacher. I was writing this morning about what MY Standards are. It was enLIGHTening. And fun. And hard to stop. I am daily deLIGHTed to discover new ways to know myself more deeply.
I encourage teachers to speak in their own voices. Don't use the gibberish of the standards writers. [Jonathan Kozol]
There are many things that are part of Life that make me want to break glass. I am learning that this has less to DO with my standards and more to DO with my opinions. I think it exemplifies my arrogance.
I was always too timid to face this about myself. Until Now. This desire to break glass is in my own control. And it always was, even when I was so sure MY WAY was superior. Humbling discovery.
The world is not ready for some people when they show up, but that shouldn't stop anyone. [Ashly Lorenzana]
I really love this one!
I love you, Currie
