some of my favorite things
maya taught me...
"when people show you who they are, believe them the first time."
"if someone's keeping secrets from you, they're trying to control you, and that's not love."
"life is always about energy. clear your energy space."
"divorce yourself from the relationships that are toxic to you."
"when you see crazy coming, cross the street!"
"don't let yourself be surrounded by people who will peck you like a duck. otherwise they will take a little piece of your soul piece by piece because you will be less than what you were meant to be."
"courage allows the successful woman to fail--and learn powerful lessons--from the failure--so that in the end, she didn't fail at all."
"when you learn, teach. when you get, give."
i'll never forget the first time i read why the caged bird sings in 7th grade.
it was the first time i read a book and remember it changing me.
as a person.
as a woman.
thank you maya,
