“I used to think that my best years were my twenties.
But now I have the home of my dreams, the man of my dreams,
my daughter is grown, my mother is happy.
These are my best years. My sixties are my best years.
Age ain’t nothing but a number. It’s your attitude that counts.”

“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself.
I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything.
It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself.
I believe that a lot of how you look
is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life.
Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.”
~ Tina Turner,
Recording Artist, Dancer, Actress & Author,
“Self-admiration has created a culture of narcissism and a “love gap” that diminishes us.
What the world needs most is a love that is the polar opposite of narcissism.
A love that is selfless and self-abandoning.
A love that does not ask,
“What’s in it for me?” but “What’s in it for those I am privileged to know?”
A love that isn’t about being served but serving others.
Your dreams come alive when you are preoccupied with making other people’s dreams come true.
That is where real happiness is found.”
“Ask, Believe, Receive –
just three simple steps to create what you want.
However, very often the second step, believe,
can be the most difficult one.
And yet it is the greatest step you will ever take.
Believing contains no doubt.
Believing does not waiver.
Believing is absolute faith.
Believing remains steadfast
despite what is happening in the outside world.
When you master believing,
you have mastered your life.”
~ Rhonda Byrne,
Author, Television Writer & Producer
“But friendship is precious, not only in the shade,
