Quotes from The Empower Series with guest Malak Husseiny:

  • Not everyone’s gonna love you.
  • Moving your body is super important. It changes how you feel. You don’t have to exercise. By even smiling for 10 seconds. That can completely change your mood.
  • People usually think their way out of their feelings, and usually it doesn’t work. What really works is changing your body movements.
  • I won’t do something unless its aligned with my truth & who I wanna be.
  • It means a lot to me to have people connecting to my music.
  • It’s important to explore and find what works for you. Find what give you peace, and be completely committed to it. This consistency will always bring you back to yourself. No matter what.
