wisdom from maya angelou

yesterday the world lost an amazing lady – poet, activist and influencer of love and strength, maya angelou. i’ve always been inspired by not only her words, but her actions, to make the world a better place. here’s just a few of her wonderful reminders to look on the bright side of life, to live bravely and courageously and to always, always, always love. RIP.

have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.

there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.

love recognizes no barriers. it jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.

nothing will work unless you do.

shine on! let nothing dim the light that shines from within.

never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.

you may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

i know for sure that love saves me and that it is here to save us all.

no sun outlasts its sunset but will rise again and bring the dawn.
