"Now or never. This is not who I am. This is not what I want. And I need to make a change. And I need to make a big change."
"I knew if I stayed and continued what I was doing I wouldn't have made it out alive somehow."
"Our job as adults is to learn our children's gifts and how to bring them out"
"I wasn't good at tests but I knew I was good at following something inside of me that was different than what I saw around me. But it felt like a lifeline."
"When everything around me told me I couldn't, shouldn't, "don't I dare," I had to listen to that little pin-prick, pencil dot, of hope."
"Follow that pin-prick of light, even if it's scary as hell. Follow that and the rest will unfold."
"There's so much noise around us all the time, even in the small choices, if we just tuned in just a little more to our own voice, or intuition, every day, our lives would be so much richer."
"No matter how bad it looks, no matter how scary it is, it's going to be okay as long as I honour who I am."
"Okay, I want that car in my driveway. What am I going to give to the world that I deserve that car? How much value am I going to put out? Who am I going to help today? What lives am I going to change? If I'm not out there changing lives, I don't deserve that car on my driveway."
"The women are the weavers and we are the ones who are going to get this mess of a world in order."
"Women are the weavers of communities, families, relationships, of the world."
