An Amazing Body of Work…415 Awards, 2 Emmys, 6 Grammys, 22 AMAs, 30 Billboard Awards & sold 300,000,000. R.I.P Whitney Houston

She will always be my favorite. I remember watching her on MTV in my teens…She was so beautiful, so talented and her life appeared so perfect. I know I wasn’t the only little girl that dreamt of standing on stage in front of 10,000 people, dressed in couture from head to toe and belting out a tune worthy of a standing ovation. When I heard she died…I immediately thought… Why? What’s the lesson? What can we all learn from this?

Use your gifts & step out onto the world stage!
Conquer your mind & do the inner work!
You can inspire others but also inspire yourself! 
Surround yourself with people that will tell you the truth! 
Live everyday as if it were your last!  
Follow your heart AND profit from your passion! 
Be good to YOU!  
When you fall…pick yourself up FAST and get back on track!     
Commit to being a better person EVERYDAY!    
Smile, laugh and strive for inner peace!

On Sunday VH1 showcased Whitney Houston’s videos. While listening to “Greatest Love Of All” the lyrics stopped me in my tracks. I’ve heard the song a million times but this time those words had a whole new meaning.

Inner Beauty
Independence
Belief
Self Love
Strength

Read them again and tell me what you think!

“Greatest Love Of All” Song By: Whitney Houston

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

[Chorus:] I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

[Chorus]

And if by chance, that special place
That you’ve been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love
