" Be an all-out, not a hold-out."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Alicia G. --- Florida
I came across this quote while searching for inspiration and motivation and it just said it all for me. It told me to stop holding out on myself, neglecting myself and to stand up for myself and be somebody bigger better and stronger than I currently was. Don't ever let anybody ever take away what's important to you like your confidence, your sense of humor and joy of life. I did once and now I'm regaining it back full speed ahead.

What makes you weak is that you are afraid of doing something, afraid that you're never gonna make it. Don't be a fool; even Noah had the same problem. He had to sail for forty days and nights in the midst of a great storm until he found a place to park his ark.
