Kevin Kleitches

Realize that there's a difference between bitterness and anger. As Maya Angelou so eloquently put it, "Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn't do anything to the object of its displeasure." Contrast this with anger -- it's okay to be angry, as long as you channel that energy productively.

Over the years, I have learned so much from Oprah Winfrey. I felt a kinship with her from the day she began her show in Chicago in 1986. She was so real. Plus, she was a woman of size (like me). She was someone who was approachable, not above me.

Here's the dirty truth: We ascribe happiness to having achieved (fill-in-the-blank). And it's no wonder that we do. Media images tell us every damn day that we must look and act a certain way if we want to be happy. But you know what? It's crap. Really. You are enough. Right now. And so am I.

Follow your fear. There's glory on the other side of the tunnel. You won't be able to see the light on the other side...maybe even for awhile. You won't ever be ready. You won't ever be totally confident. You won't ever grow the courage. You grow the courage by doing it even though you aren't ready.
