Quote of the Day
Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline. I love my freedom of speech and the way my eyes get dark when I'm tired. I love that I have learned to trust people with my heart, even if it will get broken. I am proud of everything that I am and will become.
My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.

Kiri Te Kanawa
The key to success is to keep growing in all areas of life - mental, emotional, spiritual, as well as physical.
