A STRONG WOMAN

Wednesday, March 05, 2014






A STRONG WOMAN

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape —
But a woman of strength looks
deep inside to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything —
But a woman of strength shows
courage in the midst of her fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her —
But a woman of strength gives
the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future —
But a woman of strength realizes
life's mistakes can also be blessings and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman walks sure footedly —
But a woman of strength knows
when to ask for help.

A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face —
But a woman of strength wears
an aura of grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey —
But a woman of strength has faith
that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

    Really great blog. It made me think of my mother who made a life for herself and her family, but then had it ALL taken away by a communist takeover of her country. She left because she was constantly in danger of being imprisoned for speaking out against the government. My uncle was beaten for giving medical treatment to a soldier on the wrong side of the war.

My mother told my dad that she was going to go to the land of the free and take my sister with her (she was the only one born at the time). She was going to leave everything behind, including him if need be, in order to have a chance for freedom.

Both my parents made it to America, never took welfare and used their own money to put themselves through college. My mother died, strong and proud, a few years back.

Thank you for reminding me of her.

THE LAW OF LIFE

Wednesday, February 26, 2014




THE LAW OF LIFE


Whatever you give away today or think or say or do
Will multiply about tenfold and then return to you;
It may not come immediately, nor from the obvious source,
But the law applies unfailingly, through some invisible source.
Whatever you feel about another, be it love or hate or passion,
Will surely bounce right back to you in some clear (or secret) fashion;
If you speak about some person a word of praise or two,
Soon tens of other people will speak kind words of you.
Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul, not secrets of the brain;
Kind ones bring us happiness petty ones, untold pain;
Giving works as surely as reflections in a mirror —
If hate you send, hate you'll get back, but loving brings love nearer.
Remember as you start this day, and duty crowds your mind,
That kindness comes so quickly back to those who first are kind;
Let that thought and this one direct us through each day —
The only things we ever keep are the things we give away.

    Unconditional Love comes from within, experienced and expressed to everyone everywhere no matter what the circumstances. It is in our Mind, but not of us.

Valentine's day is a celebration of happy bargains between 2 people.

Great Instructions For Life

Tuesday, February 04, 2014





Great Instructions For Life

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Memorize your favorite poem.

Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, "I love you", mean it.

When you say, "I'm sorry", look the person in the eye.

Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone's dreams.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

Don't judge people by their relatives.

Talk slow but think quick.

When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Call your mom.

Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for all your actions.

Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Marry someone you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Spend some time alone.

Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Read more books and watch less TV.

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll get to enjoy it a second time.

Trust in God but lock your car.

A loving atmosphere in your home is so important. Do all you can to create a tranquil harmonious home.

In disagreements with loved ones, deal with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.

Read between the lines.

Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.

Be gentle with the earth.

Pray -- there's immeasurable power in it.

Never interrupt when you are being flattered.

Mind your own business.

Don't trust someone who doesn't close their eyes when you kiss them.

Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.

If you make a lot of money, put it to use helping others while you are living. That is wealth's greatest satisfaction.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a stroke of luck.

Learn the rules then break some.

Remember that the best relationship is one where your love for each other is greater than your need for each other.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

Remember that your character is your destiny.

Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

"WHAT WILL MATTER"

Sunday, January 19, 2014




"WHAT WILL MATTER"

First Day of the Rest of Your Life
Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten
will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations
and jealousies will finally disappear.
So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won't matter where you came from
or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.
It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
So what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought
but what you built, not what you got but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success
but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned
but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity,
compassion, courage, or sacrifice
that enriched, empowered or encouraged others
to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence
but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew,
but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.
What will matter is not your memories
but the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered,
by whom and for what.
Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Choose to live a life that matters.
~ © 2003 By Michael Josephson

    If you have wondered what happened to my comments on your site, this is what : 51 problems on my computer, computer bloats, 3rd party advertisers & cookies to slow down my machine, 1 illegal attachment, 2 virus, and I dropped my computer-the corner hit the cement-no problems though, and when I shut it off- by touching that button & not going thru the procedures I erased the email alerts from my hard drive. I was Best Buy three times in 3 weeks, and they took my computer once for 5 days after they had told me nothing was wrong but my key board. since then have bought another. Now I just have problems with the 8.1 new programs to watch. bye, eva
