  1. I agree so much with Dr. Angelou’s ideas on living your best life. We all need to just do right in whatever situation we find ourselves in. Doing right all the time is not always easy, but it is always best for you.

  2. First I would like to say, Dr. Maya Angelou absolutely inspires me with not only what she says, but also, how she says it. Those three little words; Just do right, at age 41, finally mean something to me. The short version of my story is this: I was the shortcut queen! Although some of my schemes brought temporary relief to the feelings that drove me, I know now, beyond the shadow of any doubt, the immense joy and energy that follows doing the right thing. It is better than any high I have experienced!
    just saying! Jennifer

  3. Absolutely, when you do right…you start to see things in a more positive way…doing the right thing takes thought, because we all know right from wrong…it’s a choice and we all have the ability to choose right.
