Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.
Barbara De Angelis
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Rumi
"I believe I'm here to speak my truth and that's all I have to do. I don't have to make people understand it... I just have to speak the truth." ~Anne Wilson Schaef
"A woman is like a teabag-only in hot water do you realize how strong she is." Eleanor Roosevelt
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Learn as if you were to live forever."
"...We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. ... And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Nelson Mandela
“Each of us has that right, that possibility, to invent ourselves daily. If a person does not invent herself, she will be invented. So, to be bodacious enough to invent ourselves is wise.” - Maya Angelou
“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.”
"A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place, but a seed to be planted and to bear more seeds toward the hope of greening the landscape of idea." ~ Henry David Thoreau

"If you were to fault yourself in one of three areas, which would it be: (1) the inability to prioritize; (2) the inability or desire to organize around those priorities; or (3) the lack of discipline to execute around them? ... Most people say their main fault is a lack of discipline. On deeper thought, I believe that is not the case. The basic problem is that their priorities have not become deeply planted in their hearts and minds. They haven't really internalized Habit 2 [Begin with the end in mind]."I suspect Dr. Covey is correct ... at least about me. It occurs to me often that the 'clutter' in my surroundings seems to reflect the 'clutter' in my mind. One of the reasons I stopped reading a newspaper in the morning and/or listening to the news and developed the habit of writing in my journal instead was to avoid 'contamination' and 'distraction' ... keeping my focus on 'what matters' ... and letting the rest fall away. This is, of course, easier said than done. I've found that using 'affirmations' throughout the day helps me maintain a more 'centered' focus in the face of chaos & challenge ... maintaining 'awareness' of the moment ... as I recognize 'now' is all there really is.
"Many of my readers also know Sylvia Kirkwood, of The View from Over the Hill ... but currently she is having a serious problem with her blog. She has asked some of us to inform as many of her readers as possible about this and give them her new information. Following is a copy of the email I received from her:I'm emailing those of you for whom I have email addresses. Google has trashed my ability to access my blog and told me that my gmail address is non-existent and they have given me a new email address for my Gmail account, so while my blog is still available to visitors, I can't post anything. I've spent two days trying to get something to work, someone to talk to me about what and why, but it's impossible. Geek squads don't handle anything relating to Google. So, my only alternative is to create a new blog, with a similar a name, The View from the Other Side of the Mountain, and my first post will be about the problem. If you wouldn't mind putting a little tidbit about this on your blog, I would appreciate it. I'll also be in touch with Ronni to let her know as well.Thanks so much,Sylvia
So, there you have it. We will be able to reach her from now on at Sylvia from Over the Hill. The url is http://sylviafromoverthehill.blogspot.com.
Good Luck with the new blog, Sylvia!"
