“Sometimes you need to feel the pain and sting of defeat to activate the real passion and purpose that God predestined inside of you. God says in Jeremiah, “I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.”
~ Chadwick Boseman,

Alcohol is also a depressant that can affect your
thoughts, feelings, and actions and provoke anxiety. Steer clear.”

“Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder.
I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself.
When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’
I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”
~ Beyonce Knowles,
Singer, Songwriter, Actress & Philanthropist
“When we have painful memories from hurting experiences, we may feel justified in holding on to the resentment.
But resentment is corrosive.
It doesn’t affect the person we feel anger toward, it destroys the host.”
~ Susan L. Taylor,

“I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce.
But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?
If someone lives through an accident, his aim is to become better and healthy.
My aim is always to progress – to make better decisions and be a better father,
a better boyfriend, a better husband if it happens again.
~ Ryan Phillippe,
“Prayer and encouraging words change things. We’re all human. We all go through stuff.
The hardest part about being a celebrity is having to heal on a public stage. That’s the worst.
Imagine going through a scandal, or a divorce, or a death in the family, and running into fans on the street.
Because of where my heart is, my instinct is to put my sadness aside,
and give them a smile or a hug, no matter how bad I’m feeling.
And the appreciation of fans can refuel your spiritual tank in those situations.
But until you’re famous, people don’t realize how difficult that is.”

“I suppose I’ve always done my share of crying, especially when there’s no other way to contain my feelings.
I know that men ain’t supposed to cry, but I think that’s wrong.
Crying has always been a way for me to get things out which are buried deep, deep down.
When I sing, I often cry. Crying is feeling, and feeling is being human. Oh yes, I cry.”
~ Ray Charles,
Singer-Songwriter, Musician & Composer
