Oh sad. Maya Angelou passed away. I've so enjoyed her quotes!!!!
One of my favorite pieces of advice from her was something she told Oprah Winfrey during a time of pretty intense attack. Makes me think of a friend of mine who's been targeted lately. A wonderful teacher. Angelou said..."You aren't in that!" What she meant was that it's easy to take the a personal attack and let it spit on our own spirit...let it define or frame something untrue about ourselves. The truth is that we can face a storm and NOT be defined by it...NOT receive the hurtful message of an assault in the core of our identity. YOU aren't in that....so powerful.
