Don’t keep lowering your standards, ‘cos one day you’ll wake up and find that there’s nothing left to lower and nothing left to hold.

We are all standard bearers, but the question one should always ask themselves is what standard am I bearing?
You are a source of inspiration, then again, what kind of inspiration might it be?
When we realize that we are called, not just to live and die in ignominy, but to live happily and to leave a legacy that will stand as a testament for our time spent here.
Enduring legacy goes far beyond material possessions, but legacies that embed in memories that even the passage of time doesn’t wash away.
If you think you can’t make a difference, you are so wrong. All the men and women who made a difference long before you and I, were mere mortals just like you and I.
You may only be in the position to do small things. Yes, do those small things with a big heart. Therein, lies the difference.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.
I hear you in my thoughts…
Your words of wisdom,
of love and encouragement…
They are etched upon my soul.
They keep me warm.
