My new mantra... I am powerful. So, I have been digging up quotes to inspire me further.

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

You gain strength, experience and confidence by every experience where you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you cannot do.
— Eleanor Roosevelt

If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even ifI may not have it at the beginning. ~Mahatma Ghandi

I'm not afraid of storms for I'm learning how to sail my ship.
— Louisa May Alcott

Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heart-ache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because se we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he gets desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive form the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up to discover what is already there.
~Henry Miller

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
— Andre Gide

All problems become smaller if you don’t dodge them, but confront them. Touch a thistle timidly, and it pricks you; grasp it boldly, and its spines crumble.
— William S. Halsey

And my Favorite:
Our worst fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. ~ Nelson Mandela

    This is awesome! Great idea! I actually have a word for the year, mine is "determined," last year it was "focus." It's amazing how one word can help and motivate so much!
