Many of us believe that the only way to feel good about ourselves is to have others give us constant recognition. We love being reassured and having someone always build us up when we feel unaccomplished.
Unfortunately the truth is, however, that the faith and act of simply believing in ourselves wholeheartedly can be enough to give us the necessary confidence to accomplish what often times seems impossible. Our own self belief leads us to achieve greatness. This allows us to create the tools and emotional strength to pock ourselves up when we fall.
We have relied on others far too long. Honestly, if we need love and support, the first place we should look for this is within ourselves.
We have been cultured to believe a lot of negative reinforcement. If we can find it in our hearts to look past that, to heal from the inside out then we can successfully say "I love and appreciate all I do", no one or situation can take that away from us.
We must learn to be our own best friend, our own cheerleaders. We need to provide ourselves with the love, kindness, and respect we consistently give to others. ~Will "Story" Rivera
You are a masterpiece just waiting to be discovered. You are a unclaimed prize awaiting self discovery, unwrap yourself with excitement and be proud of your soul. ~Will "Story" Rivera
Being the best is great! Winning every competition and being number one - but being Unique is greater - when you awaken to who you really are, you begin to see that you are the only ONE. No need to compete. ~Will "Story" Rivera
All she wanted was love- they say you get what you give but she gave more than any other could even come close, how then could anyone truly understand her love, she was undefined, wild and pure, desires burned like fire with deep stares into your soul, untouchable, dreams so big they scared her, she had this genuineness about her, this kindness, so selfless "I" no longer existed, she was all things and nothing, like the sun and moon melted into galaxies and planets and she wa...s the air in which they breathed, she was life, love to her was of epic proportions and she spread it everywhere she went, wholeheartedly and without expectation, without conditions, she blessed every soul she encountered, gave every last bit of what she had away but never ran empty, so beautiful was her essence - she dreamed of love in all ways, like the sun she never stopped shining.

She was angel and I don't mean that figuratively, breathtakingly beautiful, eyes so deep she locked you into captivity, searched your soul for truth, for answers, she knows more about you than you do, compassion unlike anything you have ever seen, terribly clever, she was a messenger of God, a pure soul, bright like the sun and full of wisdom, full of magic, she carried mystery like the moon, ever changing and cycling, deep rooted into her beliefs and boy did she believe, she had this desire, these dreams, she saw the world as nothing less than beautiful, the way she spoke was like a prophet, she could manifest anything she wished and she did, she moved mountains in her own way, stubborn as all hell with a faith that was unshakable, God blessed her with so many gifts, she was favored and loved, she was able to fill you with hope and inspiration, she helped you to save yourself, divine grace and liberation, her words vibrated straight into your soul, many called to her but few understood, to be near her was a gift that so many wasted and still she gave love, still she gave her best, sacrificed, selfless was her nature, she was fearless and unstoppable, every experience was fuel to push forward, she refused to allow the outside world to ever discourage her vision, to harm her innocence and childlike nature- she was free in a way that others dreamed about, most wouldn't dare to walk her path. ~Will "Story" Rivera
