I think power comes from within. It takes a lot to be powerful and I am still not there yet, but I am grateful for all the love I have around me and with that I will become powerful 🙂 one day at a time!

 I loveeee a great pair of jeans where the bum looks great!

Love one another and be nice to everyone! Whether that be the person who cleans the floors or the person signing your checks.
