“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be imperfect.

Let go of your fantasy of perfection. Because that’s what it is. A fantasy. No one is perfect. The pursuit of perfection is a dead end street.


Be fearless.

Be steadfast.

Be risky.

Be hungry.

Be aggressive.

Be bold.

Be daring.

Be amazing.

Be generous.

Be courageous.

Be playful.

Be your best.

Be thankful.

Be creative.

Be deliciously imperfect.
