Last fall I published a post about it being your life and you should own it. Well I’m using the video clip I used from that post and a few of the words I said last year, so please read. It’s your life!
Stand your ground. Your life belongs to you. You are the one that breathes in and out of your body every day. You are the one who should be choosing what you plan to do with it, or are doing with it. The struggle may be difficult, but it’s worth it.
In the following video clip from the movie “Aliens” the heroine “Ripley” definitely encounters more things than we can ever imagine having to cope with in our lives by having to fight aliens on another planet.
But there is a point to be made here. When something needs to be done. She does it. She makes the hard decisions she needs to make, in spite of her fears, and makes them count!
We, women may not be facing aliens but we are still facing the right to be all we can be, as equal human beings. And it’s worth the fight, ladies. Stand up for your rights. It’s your life! Don’t let anyone take that away from you!
How many times in your life do you plan to keep feeling helpless and “less than”? That needs to stop, now. Inside of every single one of you dwells the ancient heart of a warrior, we’ve always been survivors: For our children and our families, now it’s time to make sure we’re surviving for ourselves, too – for the right to be our own person.
It’s time to accept the person that you truly are: the nurturer, the teacher, the guide, the peacemaker, the strength giver, the sustainer, the lover of all mankind and life – time to wake up your “loving warriors heart” because –
“That’s what little girls are really made of …
and we are long overdue for being acknowledged for this!”
So, stand your ground! You’ll find you’re not alone, I for one, am right there with you!

This is my throwback Thursday post, but if I could I’d post it every day until every single female on this planet understood and believed in the truth of my words!
It’s your life – own it!
I first wrote this piece a little over a year ago, and I’m posting it again because I believe it’s a message that we (women) need to be reminded of – again and again!
More than half of the people on this planet are female (this includes you and I)! We are not a minority in any way and this is your life, we’re talking about here. You are the one that breathes in and out of your body every day. You are the one who should be deciding how you want to live you life. YOU!
In the following movie clip from Aliens the heroine “Ripley” definitely encounters more things than we can ever imagine having to cope with in our lives.
But there is a point here. When something needs to be done. She does it. She makes the decisions she needs to make and makes them count!
We may not be facing aliens but every day we face all sorts of things to be dealt with. Our choices, our life. This includes speaking out on our beliefs and rights and defending them if necessary. Decide and then make it happen. It is your life, Don’t let others dictate how it’s going to be!
In the meantime, enjoy probably the greatest sci-fi heroine ever! And yes, she definitely owns her life!
Thanks for your visit, remember stay strong and take care of you!
“Dear Mr. President Obama,
This is Penny, yes one of your constituents. I’m having a problem right now, along with most of us other 300 million citizens.
I’m just one American out here in Washington state … but I’m worried. I’m hoping you can help me understand what’s going on.
As I was taught (in school) about the governing process (in our democratic country), our wise founding fathers set up a counter system of checks and balances to make sure that each branch could (if needs be) check the actions of others. This was done to insure that no part of the government had too much power.
And as I understand it, each of our elected representative’s main job is …
DEFINITION OF Elected Representatives (Senators, Congressmen): Those individuals voted to REPRESENT their local constituents (me and others)
… to help (the duly elected (voted for) TWICE President of the U.S.A. – that’s you) GOVERN our country.
“So WHY, Mr. President is one tiny group of Elected Representatives (see definition up above) in fact one person in particular … holding our Government and the people of the Great United States of America hostage?
Usurping his own elected position by carrying out his own private agenda at the wishes of a very few other people. And doing this at the expense of the American people – BY STOPPING THE GOVERNING PROCESS ITSELF!
Please, answer me. I need an answer. More to the point, I need you the chosen leader of this country to figure out what to do! Soon!”Thank you, Very troubled in Washington, Penny L Howe
(Just Penny’s “two cents” worth here)
… and yes I am fully cognizant and aware (politically) of what’s ‘actually’ going on, how it happened, and why. I am being focused with my letter to the President to create (hopefully) a stronger message! I love my country and fellow Americans (all of you) very much, Thanks, Penny
Don’t give me the numbers of your age!
Tell me what you’re doing with them!
If you’re a female, in many countries you live longer, are happier, better educated – in spite of having to work harder, multi-task between work and home … and pretty much have fought every inch of the way and are still fighting to have equal rights! (What’s up with that anyway? Can’t you guys figure it out!)
WELL, Cher says it all! And her age numbers 67 years!
*Visit Cher’s – Woman’s World (official HD music video) to pre-order her new album!
And She has the right of it! We’re strong! Strong enough to rise above … as we’ve proven again and again and will keep on … until there are no barriers left!
