Her words weren't written under peaceful shade, but under fear for her life. "Everyone has inside, a piece of good news." For two agonizing years she worried about being caught by the Nazis.

Here's something else I've learned about diamonds—they're just pieces of coal put under pressure for a long long long time. So, when I start feeling like I want to give up, I think about that little piece of coal. And if that piece of coal can make something of itself by not giving up, so can I. Persistence is in you!

Today my bank made a big mistake, but I forgave them. My server spilled water on me, but I forgave him. My toddler drew lipstick on the wall... was I ever mad! It got me thinking...

Here's a short quiz: Who won best actress last year? Who won the World Series two years ago? And finally, name your favorite teacher. Now I'm guessing that the last question was the easiest.

Change is in you.
