Be U

After treading this planet for over 6 decades, what have I learned…

Always be yourself

Never try to hide who you are.

The only shame is to have shame.

Always stand up for what you believe in.

Always ? what other people tell you.

Never regret the past … it’s a waste of time.

FAIL is first attempt in learning. There’s a reason for every mistake, every moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you.

END – effort never dies.

NO – next opportunity

Grow for it.

The only way you can ever get the respect of others is when you show them that you respect yourself, and most importantly, do your thing and never apologize for being you.

No number on age to limit me. I don’t want to be limited by time.

I am way more magnificent – this no longer works for me!

Things and people don’t bother me anymore. Find happiness within each day.

Look at all the things you love. I love this time of the year. I love the fact, I am going to get a new Tesla.

Welcome; magic and wonder, excellence in every blessing. What I see – I have. I accept love and give. I am student and I teach.

And, she had this weird habit of being herself all the time;
That’s why not everyone liked her.

This is it – it’s my life.
