Standing Tall

     Life is great but in the same breath, we can all confirm life can be tough.  We all go through so much. Whatever we're going through will eventually end, and we will get that break once again, life is do-able. Happens all the time.  For the most part, we have no control over how some set backs will turn out. However, I will tell you everything we go through helps us grow, and gain experience in how to move forward. We will survive anything and everything; women are truly amazing.  As hectic as life gets, we keep going, collapse, but, when that moment is over, we stand tall. dust ourselves off and move on. We all have that spirit in us and if you’re not feeling it, dig deep, it is there, you're a woman and resilience is one of our many gifts. In the end, there will always be those moments.  That's when you want to slow down and take in what surrounds you because the smallest ray of light or a great cup of coffee can make a whole day's difference. 

    I'll tell you what else makes a difference - - our friends.  We need people in our lives who understand us, people who we can depend on during tough times, people who will listen and give honest feedback. Some people prefer being with a large support group, and then some of us just look for a small support system. Whatever feels like a good fit for you, go with that because at the end of the day, we need each other. I can't tell you how many times I've grown frustrated with the world and declared I'm going to move to my own planet but you know as well as I do, we all need human interaction and without each other, we're pretty miserable. 

     Start with people who are already in your life. Make a list and determine who is positive and who isn't. Negative people can zap your energy.  Negative thoughts are very powerful so the trick is not to let them enter your brain at all.  As soon as you feel a negative thought creep in, stop it at the front door.  Shift gears immediately and think of a good thought, a happy time, a funny moment and elaborate on it until it overtakes anything negative.  Positive thoughts will always influence negative thoughts. Your time and energy needs to be spent on those who make you feel good about yourself so you can move forward with two feet on the ground. Ditch the negative noise. 

     Hear this loud and clear.  We cannot do anything without help from other people who assist and support our endeavor. People will come and go. Some will join your team because they believe in who you are or what you’re doing.  It’s these wonderful people who will pitch in and make all the difference.  At times, they carry us forward and keep our spirit going, even when we question our decision to make positive changes in our life. 

     Breathe, take a moment, and realize you are much farther than you may have believed. Whatever dreams, visions or thoughts you have we rejoice in everything you do that helps you grow.  Life is wonderful my friends, so with all that goes on, never forget that. 

Thank you so much for joining us today!
