In silence and at a loss for words, my attention is diverted to the calendar on my desk, and these words by the poet, author and social activist Nikki Giovanni are there: "Once you know who you are, you don't have to worry anymore."
I flip the page over to December: "Family faces are mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future." Gail Lurnet Buckley
And then January 2015: "If you want to do better today than you did yesterday, you simply must believe you deserve it." Iyanla Vanzant
