Sorry … not Sorry! It’s about being strong and respecting yourself.

I never thought I’d share a commercial (from a hair care company, no less), but I gotta share this with you guys. It is just too cool, and too true! Pass it on everyone! And good for you Pantene!!!!!!! It’s called “Why Are Women always apologizing”, click on the link, only a minute long and well worth it:

I don’t know about you but I recognized every single one of those “sorries”, having said them in similar circumstances, myself! Being polite is always a good thing, but saying I’m sorry for every movement you make – not a good thing!

Hope you’re having a great weekend, regardless of what’s going on in your life and that you are taking just a minute to be grateful for what you do have (not sorry, but grateful!)

With Affection,

Lullaby of Hope and Love (for my friends)

you are loved

~

love's lullaby

Love’s Lullaby

Just as a mother feels the beat of unborn child
I feel the rhythm from your heart ~ you are loved.
 
The music of you heartbeat so piercing and so sweet
you are special and unique and ~ you are loved.
 
 Yes there are those bad days, bad times,
(hard, hard, hard ones too),
but, hush now, hush now, do not cry ~ you are loved.
 
I sing for you a heart song to nourish you within
You are safe, and you are cherished ~ you are loved.
 
 Let my strength pick up your spirits
carry you along.
You aren’t alone, you aren’t forgotten ~ you are loved.
 
 You my friend so beautiful
I sing to let you know.
Do not be sad, I’m here for you ~ you are loved.

“On those loneliest days when you feel such despair
Reach out your hand, a friend will be there!”
