“We all have blind spots — those areas for improvement and growth. As painful as it can be to admit we’re doing things we never wanted to do and saying things we never wanted to say, it is this acknowledgment that enables us to take the first step toward change. Be gentle with yourself. Be real with yourself. Take baby steps.”

— Rhonda Louise Robbins

The Last Words…

“When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like when they do want to, you can't stop them.”

— Andy Warhol
