Ples Montgomery IV | Harbinger of The Oak Cliff Veggie Project

My favorite affirmation comes from the movie “Attack The Block” The affirmation is “ALLOW IT” This is a favorite of mine due to the storyline of the movie, and the way they used it. Also I discovered this with my brother and we started using it whenever we had something important to get done. It’s a reminder to do what you can for whatever you want to accomplish and allow it to happen even if you don’t know it exactly how to get it done or if what you are going to do will workout.

Megan Moore | CEO of The Love Within Us, Empowering Self-Affirmations

This is such a great question! I love quotes and I am in the affirmation business. Out of all the wonderful affirmations out there, I think one of the most powerful ones would have to be, “I am becoming”. It exudes and welcomes growth. What are you becoming, how are you becoming, why are you becoming. This simple “I am” statement leaves the work up to you. It allows you to respond to what “becoming” means to you. As each week, month, or year passes, this statement can and will look different. You will have and overcome different challenges and obstacles, through each phase and chapter of your life. For me this affirmation, “I am becoming”, means I am becoming the best version of me. I welcome challenges and learning experiences to grow. Read more>>

Melanie Wilson | CEO & Cancer Survivor

Robin Roberts, ABC anchor, often talks about her mother’s wise expression, “Make your mess your message.” This adage resonates with me because my personal cancer journey has made me an extremely passionate and devoted CEO of a nonprofit that supports and serves cancer patients, survivors, and their loved ones. I have a clear understanding of our mission, and the needs of the thousands of clients we serve each year, because I have been a cancer patient – and am now a survivor. My husband has also survived cancer, and I was his caregiver. And sadly, I lost my beautiful and vibrant daughter to cancer, just 16 days after her 21st birthday. These experiences guide me as a leader… and in essence, my pain has become my superpower. Read more>>

Erin Meskill | Pole Dance Performer, Producer & Emcee

Yes I do actually! “Do things with passion, or not at all. Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” I think I was in high school when I first heard this quote and it just resonated with me. I’ve always been very passionate about things that I enjoy. I’m either all in and it’s all I can think about until it comes to life or it doesn’t happen at all. I like this quote because I can relate to it and it reminds me to focus on the things that matter and to follow my dreams. Read more>>
