A Woman Should Have 3-14-18

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….

Enough money within her control to move out…

And rent a place of her own

even if she never wants to

or needs to…

Something perfect to wear if the employer

or date of her dreams wants to See Her in an hour…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …

A youth she’s content to leave behind….

A past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to

retelling it in her Old Age….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .

A set of screwdrivers,

a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…

One friend who always makes her laugh…

And one Who lets her cry…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….

A good piece of furniture not previously owned

by anyone else in her Family…

Eight matching plates,

wine glasses with stems,

And a recipe for a meal that will make

her guests feel Honored…

A feeling of control over her destiny…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

How to fall in love without losing herself..

HOW TO QUIT A JOB,

BREAK UP WITH A LOVER,

AND CONFRONT A FRIEND WITHOUT

RUINING THE FRIENDSHIP…

When to try harder…

And WHEN TO WALK AWAY…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

That she can’t change the length of her calves,

The width of her hips,

or the nature of her parents..

That her childhood may not have been perfect…

But it’s over…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more…

How to live alone…

Even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

Whom she can trust,

Whom she can’t,

And why she shouldn’t take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

Where to go…

Be it to her best friend’s kitchen table…

Or a charming inn in the woods…

When her soul needs soothing…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

What she can and can’t accomplish in a day…

A month…

And a year…

A Big Win 11-3-17

It’s Friday! Thank goodness. If you’re reading this post, congratulations!! You made it through another week. We all have ups and downs throughout the week, expected and unexpected challenges however through it all there’s always a “WIN”. It’s easy to focus on the negative but if you focus on your “Wins” you’ll be surprised how quickly your attitude and demeanor changes. It’s easy to go from a 5 to a 10 when focusing on the good stuff. My challenge to you today is to post one win on the comment line of this post. Focus on that win and watch how quickly a challenging day/week can become an awesome one!! Carry that feeling in to the weekend and Make this weekend a big win!! I’ll start by sharing my “WIN”. Spending time with my grandkids this week not to mention my son and his wife, my daughter and her partner, hearing from my son in Italy and scoring an awesome deal at Banana Republic!!! 
Now your turn!!

Tag……you’re it!

Be Inspired 2-20-16

In January as I was waiting to meet with my oncologist my brother texted me this inspirational video. I was so touched I began to cry. I’m a die hard San Francisco fan but the message in this video couldn’t have come at a better time. 

I met w my oncologist who didn’t have the best news but despite the negative there was hope. I made the decision that day that despite everything I wasn’t going to give up. Since then every morning as I get ready for work I listen to the above video and others to inspire me and encourage me to keep on fighting. Not only to beat this crazy disease but to follow my dreams and live life to the fullest. I’m rock bottom, in financial disarray & im fighting cancer every day but the good news is I’m fierce, I’m fabulous, I’m funny & I’m not giving up. 
I’m sharing some of these videos w all of you today in the hopes at least one of them will inspire you the way my brothers act of kindness to inspire me that hopeless day in January, inspired me and continue to inspire me every morning as I begin a new day. “I love you little brother!”
I met a man having a chemo treatment the same day I was last year. I asked him how he was. His reply “I’m great! Every day above ground is a great day!” I’ve never forgot those words. Keep in mind he was fighting cancer for the 2nd time. So today as you face the challenges we all go through on this journey to survive….remember Today Is A Great Day! Every Day Above Ground Is A Great Day! If you’re reading this then my goodness it’s a great day! Go out and make the best of it. Be inspired!!!!

As for me…..well let’s just say “I’m living life to the fullest!!!!”
