Be a queen. Dare to be different. Be a pioneer. Be a leader. Be the kind of women who in the face of adversity will continue to embrace life and walk fearlessly toward the challenge. Take it on! Be a truth seeker and rule your domain, whatever it is; your office, your family — with a loving heart.

Be a queen. Be tender. Continue to give birth to new ideas and rejoice in your womanhood… My prayer is that we will stop wasting time being mundane and mediocre… We are daughters of God — here to teach the world how to love…

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, where you come from, who your parents are–nor your social or economic status. None of that matters. What matters is how you choose to love, how you choose to express that love through your work, through your family, through what you have to give to the world…

Be a queen. Own your power and your glory!
