~Buddha quote

I believe in myself enough to not doubt my relationships, my friendships or my decisions. I am a lovable person, who gives as much love as I receive. My loved ones know I love them and I know they love me in return!

"If I have a cup of coffee that is too strong for me because it is too black, I weaken it by pouring cream into it. I integrate it with cream. If I keep pouring enough cream in the coffee, pretty soon the entire flavor of the coffee is changed; the very nature of the coffee is changed. If enough cream is poured in, eventually you don't even know that I had coffee in this cup."
