Dwelling deep inside is an abiding nurturing spirit and lest you ever forget it, the strength of a woman’s will is of a most awesome and passionate kind. Reread history. Many, many females of the past and present have had to endure, suffer, survive and overcome (just for being a female) all the while nurturing, loving and protecting as she can.
She has always understood, within her very being, her distinctive and real human role. The role to help insure the survival of her (sometimes violent and brutal) species. Intellect, caring and loving are a huge part of that capability. Now is a good time for females to be reassured that the way they are made is not a “weakness” but a strength.
She IS the strength of her convictions and regardless of being handicapped by those who think and tell her otherwise, she still will always be the She who most will count on, from birth going forward! It is not a coincidence that Nature is called Mother Nature. The sobriquet for the greatest force on the planet is Mother. Think on that one for a minute.
All humans are flawed. Each of us come with our own personal set of shortcomings. When I speak of females I am referencing the universal understanding of the gender as a whole, not one sort of individual.
We are not only equal, we are ‘equal to’ the challenges now being presented to us.
For all the women out there: This post is for you ~ be you a mom, daughter, sister, friend or other. Inside us is a strength that has always been. In no way are we the “weaker” sex. We never have been …

I fear change, unless curiosity and anticipation encourage me through a newly opened door of opportunity. I hate what doesn’t agree with me unless my compassion, caring and need to understand takes charge and helps me to greater wisdom.
Reality can definitely seem overwhelming unless/until my imagination takes over and finally, I know sometimes I feel a sense of despair until my hopeful spiritual nature and dreams come forth to guide me to a better place.
Isn’t it a most wonderful thing to know that we (each) have our own internal toolbox of survival tools always available to us. If we remember to use them.
You do … Don’t you?
Be an Encourager. First to yourself and then to others! Thanks for stopping by and have a great new week to come. I wish you well.
We must leave in no doubt the pure poetic power
found within a single flower emitting a sensual immediacy
of beauty most profound.
Yet even greater, and in addition to, is the resonating frequency of life
this one single flower transmits for all to experience and know,
if we would but allow ourselves to feel:
… the overlooked ethereal, eternal symmetry of just … being.
Welcome September and a very warm welcome to all my friends. Those I know and those I’ve yet to meet. May your days and weeks ahead be filled with creative happenings and positive experiences. I wish you well.
With sincere affection,
If you are attempting to increase your motivation for accomplishing a thing but feel stymied on how to make this happen, then consider the following:
A passionate determination is the true starting point for enabling the release of one’s emotional persistence. Persistence, in turn, opens the (often too tightly closed) gateway into core inner strengths (energy).
We become stronger and more capable (in effect more motivated) for dispelling personal fears – facing down and overcoming obstacles that frequently occur during our pursuit of goals. The message here is very clear – be passionate. Be passionate with your creative endeavors. Be passionate with your beliefs and most importantly, your belief of self.
You can do this! Yes. You. Can.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week ahead and always remember to take care of you. I wish you well.
“Being powerful without honor & moral values isn’t being strong at all. Rather it’s brawn made up of fear & greed masquerading as same & failing miserably. Bravery with honor and valor on the other hand is a most magnificent thing to behold.” ~Plh
Always true, from the smallest every day bravery to the largest.
With much affection, I wish you well.

A Dreamer Dreaming!
When Dreamers Dream … which they do (of course) … there is this ethereal sort of frequency (quality of thought) released from the dreamer’s emotions, Emanating outward, coalescing into the most magnificent potentials existing right on the precipice where never ending possibilities lay in wait.
Not beyond our capabilities to create because … after all, we’ve dreamed them into existence.
How very beautiful: Our dreams, those created and crafted potentials, and of course … the dreamers. This being All Of Us! Yay “Us”!
Soooo ….Go Dreamers go. Dream big. Dream strong. dream long. Dream creative but most importantly … dream on!
Thanks for stopping by, I wish a most positive and creative uplifting week to every single dreamer out there. Stay safe, stay well.
With great affection,
When you look at life through lens darkened with shadowy prisms of fear everything can look wrong/bad, even futile; this includes how you view yourself, others and the nature of things happening to and around you.
Therefore, it becomes of great importance for you to know and understand that your fears have no power unless you give them same. Hatred and insecurities are fueled by fear.
And you … well you have much more internal power than you think you do. Time to be aware of this. Let your spirit loose. Be who you were meant to be. Set things up the way you want them … you know, the way that within your glorious heart of hearts and dreams they are meant to be. First in thoughts and then with your actions.
You belong to you. You are the powerhouse that feeds creative energy to your soul. Energy connected to you through Universal love, an ever flowing spiritual currency without end. Let your energy free, love filled and awash with light. The darkness of fear cannot reside here. At least not for long.
Today’s the day to begin to make it so. Be brave and never forget … your bravery BECOMES you.
I believe in you and wish you well.
The Window of Our Soul
We gaze upon life’s mysteries
from the window of our soul,
manipulation be our role?
Are we the chosen players,
embedded in this life,
must we flourish midst this strife?
Or in truth, are we exploring
while refining redefining
what is known, to what will be
enlightened beings who can see,
– through the window of our soul!

Being brave is sometimes amazingly difficult, but nonetheless always becoming! With your bravery there exists the strong potential that you are …
… becoming stronger as an individual with individual freedoms.
… becoming less fearful when there are new obstacles to overcome.
… becoming a better person with higher ideals and greater respect for honest, caring and loving standards of behavior (where you do no harm) as you expand your vision of the world with less personal conflicted thoughts and emotions.
… becoming the best you that you can be within the uniqueness of who and how you are and yet also knowing you’re a part of and representative of life on the planet Earth that you share with all other life.
… becoming aware and acknowledging that it’s okay and actually an excellent thing to believe in yourself.
“Humanity asking of Life: Share with me just the smallest whisper of hope so my thoughts and emotions will hear you (despite the ever increasing cacophony of change bombarding day and night with greed, hatred, intolerance, prejudice, inhumanity and indifference) and I promise you it shall be as the roar of a lion within my heartsick troubled soul and I shall take solace and share your whispers of hope with all who will listen.
Life whispers: You are all my children and you are loved.”
Thanks for stopping by, I wish you most well.
