Peace and Love to You

I had to leave suddenly and wasn’t able to say good-bye to the many friends I made here. I hope you are all still blogging and enjoying yourself here. I wish you all the best and will fondly remember all of you.

30 Women in 30 Days – Day 18 (I think)

Holidays are crazy at my house and it can be exhausting.  There’s so much cooking, cleaning, shopping, wrapping and decorating to do. I’m posting this as a reminder for me as much as for you.

Don’t forget to take time out for yourself.

Sending hugs to you!

30 Women in 30 Days – Day 16

Body Beautiful

Heal your wounds.

Redefine your own beauty.

I have come to drag you out of yourself, and take you in my heart. I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had and lift you like a prayer to the sky ~Rumi

“Step Away from the Mean Girls…
…and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.
Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others.

This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”  – Oprah Winfrey

“A cultural fixation on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty but an obsession about female obedience.” – Naomi Wolf

“To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself.”  – Simone de Beauvoir

30 Women in 30 Days – Day 12

Today’s post is honoring the women who have been targets of domestic violence, stalking or any type of sexual, physical, emotional, economic or psychological abuse.

Whether a woman has witnessed it in the street, had a friend or relative in an abusive relationship or was in one herself, I believe we’ve probably all witnessed violence against women at some level.

Women are victimized by intimate partners, social acquaintances and friends, family members and even strangers.  It’s not unusual for violence or abuse to cause long term trauma related health effects.  Healing is their mission.

Violence against a woman is a violation of her human rights.

Women have the power to create their own experience.

Love and acceptance for ourselves frees us from the shackles that restrain our joy and confidence.

Stay fearless and fabulous!

Thank you all for your support and inspiring me with new ideas for the next 20 days.  I appreciate you for reading, commenting and liking my posts.

30 Women in 30 Days – Day 8

I’ve always had a hard time opening up and letting people know me. It takes time to trust and to find the comfort level where I feel safe to share my most intimate thoughts and feelings.

I’m very good at hiding but I’m learning to put my real self out there.

30 Women in 30 Days – Day 7

When we stop trying to understand and accept people of different cultures, religions, genders and generations the results can be disastrous.  No matter who and where we are, we all smile in the same language. 

“We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.”–Luciano de Crescenzo

30 Women in 30 Days – Day 6

Be confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when you accept everything you are and aren’t that you will truly succeed. – Unknown

When life gets you down blow bubbles.

Who doesn’t love sexy lingerie?

Corsets, bustiers, garter belts, stockings, satin gowns and robes…I love it all!

No fashion magazine will ever dictate what looks sexy and stylish on me.
