“There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you.”
“Let me just twit on days like today when I feel empty and my mind thinkless. Not really because I just figured out Tropical Cyclone Yasi is more potent than Hurricane Katrina.

“Some time ago, nature changed the world as I knew it. It left no apologies, no remorse... waves and winds leaving me with nothing to call my own. Or so I thought. Now five years later, I look back and see all what it has given me. Courage, resilience, empowerment... the list goes on and on. Things that no one can ever take away from me. And for that, I am eternally grateful.”
