self-respect and self-esteem.

If you are attentive,

There are no small acts of kindness.
Every compassionate act makes large the world.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Which beliefs hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?

Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
