We know what we want to do, but are afraid of hurting those around us by abandoning everything in order to pursue our dream. We do not realize that love is just a further impetus, not something that will prevent us going forward. We do not realize that those who genuinely wish us well want us to be happy and are prepared to accompany us on that journey.
Paulo Coelho from the book THE ALCHEMIST

WOW! What a raw talent. Not looking like the typical Hollywood beauty never stopped her from pursuing a career in Hollywood. She paved her own way in Hollywood and always embraced her imperfections. I’ve always loved her corky and funny personality and how incredibly gifted she is at performing on stage and films!  A true Hollywood Star!

This year is all about self growth for me. I want to be a better person and grow intellectually and spiritually. I want to eventually be in a position one day where I can inspire women to be their better selves. What have you done today to be a better you? 

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.
Paul Coelho
