"You're beautiful. Nobody else is like you, you are unique, intelligent and you have a good heart. Your smile is beautiful because it shows inner beauty, which is more important than anything else."
"We all get shy from time to time, but if your shyness is hurting your relationships and keeping you from making new friends, you owe it to yourself to work on overcoming it. Shy people tend not to smile or make eye contact with other people. It might lead to people thinking you aren't interested in talking to them, or that you have an attitude. Snap out of it. When you're talking to someone, remind yourself to look at them, to smile, to stay involved in the conversation. Straightening your posture helps, too. Pretty soon this stuff will come naturally to you, but you have to practice."
"No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning."
"You might think your not worthy. But, I promise you that there is someone out there who thinks you are."
"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want."
"There will be times when you will be in the field without a camera. And, you will see the most glorious sunset or the most beautiful scene that you have ever witnessed. Don't be bitter because you can't record it. Sit down, drink it in, and enjoy it for what it is!"
"The only thing stopping you from doing the things that you want to do, is yourself. Stand up and make it happen. You deserve it."
