Empowerment

The Empowered Woman

Every woman has the ability to experience personal growth and development. This first step begins with you adopting a positive attitude towards life. You must have a fervent desire to rise above any problem or circumstances that may be holding you back.

Be aware of your environment and social connections. If your circle of friends are negative, unproductive people who add nothing to your growth, you need to change them. Set achievable goals for your life and devise a plan on how you are going to reach those goals. Make a chart of the things you hope to achieve and set a time frame.

Push yourself to achieve your daily or weekly goals. Be in touch with your spiritual side. It is always a good thing to believe in a higher power to sustain you and lift you up. Find something that motivates you and give you hope. Knowledge is very important so read widely on topics that interest you. Read to increase your intelligence or simply for recreation. You will be surprised at how much you can learn from making a habit of reading. Above all as you go through each day have a strong belief in self and your ability to be successful.

Things you Fear

Harsh Reality

A few days ago I went to the movies with my daughters and sitting in the theater I found myself wondering… What if someone should come in shooting? Where could we run? Where could we hide? I was a little alarmed at having those thought because I don’t usually worry when I go to the movies. However with the frequency shootings are taking place, these are serious and well founded questions. We all have to have a plan on how we can try to survive if the unexpected happens.

Guns take lives. Guns create fear. The right of some to own guns should not impact on the rights of others to live.

Popular Fruits I don’t eat

In the Caribbean we have some fruits in abundance as most people in rural areas have a fruit tree or fruit trees growing in their backyard. There are two popular fruits that I don’t eat one is Star Apple, the other is Mango. Mango is such a popular that people sometimes appear shocked when you say you don’t eat it. That come in many different varieties but they are not for me.

Changing Times

Do Children Play Outdoors Anymore?

I remember growing up, at school, we couldn’t wait for recess to come so we could go outside and play. From jump rope, to baseball, dandy shandy and hopscotch, we did it all. Sometime we girls would sit and play jacks. It was so much fun.

These days children will sit and be on their phones, tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices for hours without venturing outdoors. Oh how times have changed.

A Prayer, LIFESTYLE

Whisper a Prayer

When you are feeling down and out and your heart is filled with despair, know that there is one you can talk to and he always care. In the midst of your heartache whisper a little prayer. God is always listening. He will heal your wounds and take away your cares.
