Exclusive Offer

 A   L   O   H   A  !

A kind heart is a 

fountain of gladness, 

making everything in 

its vicinity freshen 

into smiles.

       Washington Irving

Your character 

should always be 

stronger than 

your circumstances.

       Dave Willis

I have a small message 

but a big audience.

I have a small title 

but a big education.

I have a small purse 

but a big gift.

       Matshona Dhliwayo

You are a big gift, Pixie!
Just get your feet off my pillow.


The only people excluded 

in our new day, are those 

who exclude. Being exclusive 

had benefits before. 

But the energy of the world 

has changed. Benefits derived 

from exclusion are now seen 

for what they are, as injustice. 

Therefore everyone is now 

to be

respected equally and given 

an equal opportunity 

as much as possible.

The only people excluded 

are the excluders. 

And that is something 

you choose or 

are taught to be.

You can change your thinking.

And behavior. 

What used to benefit you, 

now hurts you in real 

social and moral ways.

The only ones excluded 

are excluders. 

So don't be one.

Love You,

Doubt Your Doubt

 A   L   O   H   A  !

Doubt your doubts before 

you doubt yourself.

        Lewis Pugh

A person who 

has good thoughts 

cannot ever be ugly. 

You can have a wonky nose 

and a crooked mouth and a

double chin and stick-out teeth,

but if you have good thoughts 

they will shine out of your face 

like sunbeams and you 

will always look lovely.

Roald Dahl


If you want to 

see the sunshine, 

you have to 

weather the storm.

Frank Lane

You can't have a wrong 

mentality about life and 

expect that you will see 

the bright side of life.

         Bamigboye Olurotimi

 When words are 

both true 

and kind, 

they can change 

the world.

 A   L   O   H   A  !

The things that go 

wrong for you 

have a lot of 

potential to become 

your gift to the world.

Krista Tippet

At times the world 

may seem an unfriendly 

and sinister place, but 

believe that there is 

much more good in it 

than bad. 

All you have to do 

is look hard enough. 

And what might seem 

to be a series of 

unfortunate events 

may in fact be the

first steps of a journey. 

      Lemony Snicket

At the end of the day, 

remind yourself that 

you did the best 

you could today, and 

that is good enough.
