If You Are A Girl … BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE!

jodyfoster

Jodie Foster by Annie Leibovitz

If you are born a female, as soon as you’re able to communicate, limitations are put upon you, solely for the reason that you are a girl. These limitations are reinforced in our schools, our workplace, our communities and our homes. For many girls, it doesn’t take long to add to these limitations. They become self fulfilling.

YOU ARE as equal as any other human on this planet. You CAN achieve anything you believe you can. And the very first thing to achieve (regardless of your current age) is your belief in yourself. It begins there and once you’ve planted the seed of self-belief, nurture it. Keep it growing, bigger, better, stronger.

Be all that you can be … You owe it to yourself!

And YES, #unstoppable – a very good word to emulate!

With all my love, support and affection to each and every one of you reading this,

A Woman’s Strength

All too often the strength & endurance of a woman is hidden, surfacing as neededbut always there!” ~ Plh

                            * * *
I can not emphasize enough the fact that a woman has an astonishing capability when it comes to enduring that which life throws her way.

Sofor all you ladies out there, who get up every day enduring, surviving and managing (through all forms of adversity) to thrive … I say Way To Go!

YOU ROCK! DONT STOP! You’re setting an amazing example for the rest of us.

Thank you.

Precious Moments ~ The Golden Elixir of Our Lives!

 

As we pass through our days, if we but notice, there are those special moments – perhaps visual, a spoken word, a deed, a song, a feeling.

Each releasing within us a golden elixir. Magical miraculous and perhaps a little mysterious. They tend to be fleeting, these precious moments …

precious moments

 

… a sweet emitted substance of sensation that can calm and lift a troubled and heavy heart.

Love – The Greatest Source of Inspiration!

imeetsingh

“Some of the greatest things created by man had their inspiration from LOVE!”

Not only that, but probably the most sustaining “glue” we humans have when relating to one another. I know there are many other emotions that can and do effect us in the course of our lives, Both negative and positive. But I believe Love stands alone when it comes to “Why” humans are still around. A sort of moral imperative, if you will.

The need to be loved. The need to love. HUGE … when if it comes right down to it and I do honestly believe the greatest source of inspiration and motivation that we humans will ever have.

I know it’s the reason I always have hope for us, our future and our planet. The “Love” factor will carry us through.

Hope your week is being good for you, thank you for stopping by,

Today’s the Day to Begin: Your passion, your dreams, your goals – YOU!

 

abwishes

For most of us, by the time we’re adults we’ve become adept at one thing – an expert even, in many cases. We are creative geniuses when it comes to procrastination or excuses for why we’re not doing something. And it goes even further than that.

When things don’t go the way we think they should, we go a step further and blame others, situations or circumstances for why something isn’t happening for us. We end up being our own worst enemy.

The hardest thing to overcome is the infinite variety of rationales (excuses) we come up with, on any given day, for why we don’t start something or finish it … once begun. Once we recognize that  “we” are actually the problem, or at least our resistant attitude, things begin to happen. Make today your first happening day!

Always remember, it’s your choices and your passion that will get you were you want to be!

Have a great day and better tomorrow.

With affection,

Hope – binding thread of strength!

By LeanneStewart

In the smallest corner of being

sometimes so small it hides,

You will still find it there

because hope hangs on.

*

When certain there’s no winning

and all is done for naught

there yet exists a spark of light,

… hope hangs on.

*

Human nature guarantees

we’ll fail more than we win,

and I think that’s why there’s hope

,,, hope hangs on.

*

Dreams are made from wishes

desires made from dreams,

hope the binding thread of all

… hope hangs on.

P.L. Howe, 2014

And  speaking personally, I think that’s a very good thing indeed!
