Regardless...

of who we are, how we were raised or what we believe, all of us fight the silent and lonely battles of not being enough, not having enough and not belonging enough.

~ Shame plays a significant and damaging role in women's lives.
~ We are all capable of overcoming shame and of helping other women and girls do the same.

Lighter Blogging Ahead

Things have been rather crazy these last two months, and this month proves to be even more crazier. My lease is up at my apartment at the end of this month, we just got PC moved in and I hope to be moved out by the 21st. I see quite a bit of late night packing and also some extra hours in at work... burning of the midnight oil is being foreseen. Doesn't help that

I'm tired already...



Therefore we do not lose heart.Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.For our light and momentary troublesare achieving for us an eternal glorythat far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,but on what is unseen.For what is seen is temporary,but what is unseen is eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

A thought for the day

My Troubles have a purpose, this pain is not in vain.

Put Yourself Out On A Limb

I know that it's easier to portray a world that's filled with cynicism and anger, where problems are solved with violence. that's titillating. It's an easy out. What's a whole lot tougher is to offer alternatives, to present other ways conflicts can be resolved, and to show that you can have a positive impact on your world. To do that, you have to put yourself out on a limb, take chances, and run the risk of being called a do-gooder.

Ahhh.... Yes....

The black definitely feels better on this page... The pink was way to loud, even for me. LOL... Thanks Bushwack!! After all, it's all about being "me", right? This is definitely me... hehehe

I feel myself again... ;)

As I said previously, some things posted here, may come across contradicting to religion beliefs, and all, but I just know that balance in life is what I'm looking for. I give all credit to God for where I am now, but...I keep an open mind to even the philosophies of Bruce Lee;

All knowledge is really self-knowledge, Bruce often said, meaning that the more a person exposes himself to learning opportunities, the more these experiences enrich, enhance, and become part of who that person is.

What is true friendship according to the Bible?

We are reminded of the principle found in Amos. "Can two walk together, except they be agreed" (Amos 3:3). Friends are of like mind. The truth that comes from all of this is that friendship is that relationship that is entered into by individuals and it is only as good or as close as those individuals choose to make it. Some one has said that if you can count your true friends on the fingers of one hand, you are blessed. A friend is one whom you can be yourself with and never fear that they will judge you. A friend is someone that you can confide in with complete trust. A friend is someone you respect and that respects you, not based upon worthiness but based upon a likeness of mind.

I am truly blessed as I have a friend as the bible describes.... Suzanne Speaks.

Who would have ever known that two people, never knowing the other existed until "MySpace" brought our paths together, would end up to be such a great friendship. She had a gift for me this morning, a book; Balancing Your Life by Suzan D. Johnson Cook.



You are one of God's leading ladies, and as such, you have a very busy life. What is the key to success? Balance. yes, blanacing the many components of your life and keeping each element rightly aligned is essential in order to be everything God created you to be. In orcer to take your place on the stage of life and keep your place in the spotlight for the long term, you will need to be strong, healthy, and whole.

Thank you dear friend, you have definitely been a blessing in my life.

I love Self Help Books, I'm an avid reader of this line of books. I could start my own library, these amongst the many craft books that I tend to purchase also. This one will be sitting on my nightstand with the others that I am reading. I have to admit, as much as I love reading, I'm a slow reader, I take my time, I hate that I don't read on a daily basis, but that is something I'm working on. Hopefully things will change once I'm moved and settled in to the new place. :)
Friends such as this dear one to me, is a great source of support when you need it most!
