I am a MAYA ANGELOU converted FAN

just saying...

next to Oprah my Queen, I now have MAYA ANGELOU in my life, whom I will consider as God's Messenger to me...

I do not know what happened this day that led me to read and get obsessed with Maya Angelou.

Now I'm trying to print / download and get copies of all her work... next stop is get her book...

well, (maybe) It actually started when I tried to search for self help "confidence" books and some research on how to get back on the rebound of my whole life - my love, my career, money, motherhood, womanhood and my whole femininity!!!

hahaha!!! :) what a word to use for someone who does not even wear make-up even once a week.

But as I read on to these quotes, which could be found in all of her works...

I felt that my ego rise, my head is nodding and my mind is agreeing... I AM THAT WOMAN, AND I WILL WEAR MY VICTORIA'S SECRETS AND MY MAC RUSSIAN RED LIPSTICK WITH PRIDE - STARTING TODAY!!!
and yes, I will still, as always will adore my Bags (no matter what size and name) and will always prepare my daughter's uniforms and foods - with honor and fulfillment.

I will continue to share my love, romance and flirtations with my partner because that is my right as a woman... which he gladly gave eversince...
I will be cooking well for my family and giggle with my friends more often, and now, with more joy because I own my happiness...

goodbye regrets and self pity
because now, I will own my whole world...

my girl power "adrenaline" is rushing; and literally,

MAYA ANGELOU, and all her quotes - GAVE ME NEW HOPE in my dimming life, She showed me that LIFE IS GOOD and that by BEING JUST ME AND THE BETTER ME -- everything around me can be the Best in my life...  and I hope as you read on, you too, will be inspired as I was....

 let me share these MAYA ANGELOU QUOTES that can be life changing

"No Matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."
Maya Angelou

The main thing in one's own private world is to try to laugh as much as you cry."
Maya Angelou

"Women should be tough, tender, laugh as much as possible, and live long lives."
Maya Angelou

"Live as though life was created for you"

Maya Angelou

"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." — Maya Angelou

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
Maya Angelou

"Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me."
Maya Angelou (Phenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating Women)

"It’s the fire in my eyes,

And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Maya Angelou (Phenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating Women)

"Ritie, don't worry 'cause you ain't pretty. Plenty pretty women I seen digging ditches or worse. You smart. I swear to God, I rather you have a good mind than a cute behind."
Maya Angelou (I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings)

"When you learn, teach, when you get, give."

- Maya Angelou

"To those who are given much, much is expected."
Maya Angelou

"You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I'll rise!"
Maya Angelou

"Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman"
Maya Angelou

"I don't trust anyone who doesn't laugh."
Maya Angelou

"I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life'."
Maya Angelou

"My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return."
Maya Angelou

"There were people who went to sleep last night,
poor and rich and white and black,
but they will never wake again.

And those dead folks would give anything at all
for just five minutes of this weather
or ten minutes of plowing.

So you watch yourself about complaining. What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it."
 — Maya Angelou
