The Strength of Her Convictions – A Reminder!

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 …

Life is a Challenge ~ Are you up for it?

Sitting outside in the back yard this morning (6 a.m. – Northwestern America time), taste buds waking up to rich flavors of fresh brewed coffee, I thought about all the things to accomplish today. It would have been a simple matter, adding these up in my head, to head to a negative place, but instead, I stretched, played with the dog, took the trash out, (garbage collection day) reminded myself what I had to be grateful for and decided I was happy to begin my new day! Good Morning World!

Each day of your life

is a challenge – embrace it with passion!

The passionate risks taken in life

may be turn out poorly or gloriously wonderful,

but at least you can say

‘I have lived my life to the fullest’

with no regrets.

Seeing Eternity

They say on a clear day you can see forever. Perhaps this is so. But I think … if you’re high enough, viewing the world by looking out, over thick misty clouds stretching off into the horizon … perhaps you feel like you’re seeing eternity.

You stand there, poised above everyday problems, staring into a vast distance of possibilities and potentialities; this moment in time etched in your mind – one you’ll remember forever.  The day you were high above the clouds, above doubts and fears, with the sense of belief … that perhaps you can.

The Infinite Loop of Life

The Infinite Loop of Life

~

Its all in how you think about it!

We shape our actions from our thoughts,

we shape our thoughts from our emotions,

we shape our emotions from our actions to our experiences in life,

as … we shape our actions from our thoughts.

And the loop begins again!

In a computer, an infinite loop (also known as an unproductive loop) is a sequence of instructions that loops endlessly, sometimes because there are no instructions given that will allow the looping to cease. Sometimes infinite loops cause the entire system to consume all available processor time until ended by the user.

Is your life an infinite loop and if so, perhaps it’s time to end this condition. Make some changes, rethink a few things so that the infinite loop in your life is gone!

Maybe just a few little positive changes in how you view yourself and your experiences in life might be a good place to begin! Give it a try. Start today.
