We live in an ever changing world yet many people are afraid of change. However change is often necessary as you begin to climb that mountain that will get you to success. The path will not always be clear. You will encounter change in your personal development. Your circle of friends may change. Your priorities and the way you do things may change. Change is an inevitable part of your growth. Don’t fight change, instead embrace it.
Times have changed. As women we have evolved. Gone are the days when women were expected to stay home, be good wives and bear children. Women are now go-getters forging the way and making strides in almost every area of society.
However we still have women who believe it is a man’s job to take care of them and make them happy. This is not a good idea. A relationship should never be about one person’s total dependence on another but rather about two people working together to create something great.
Dependence is one of the key factors that many women become trapped in unhappy and abusive relationships. Even if they have the will to leave, inability to finance themselves keep them trapped. Whether it is a marriage or a relationship maintain your independence. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made
Society has one of the greatest influence on people and so many feel they need to do just about anything to fit in. Social media perhaps has the greatest impact on how women view themselves amd the image they project. Nowadays many women equate nakedness to sexiness. If you have to expose your body in order to feel attractive it says a lot about how you view yourself as an individual and more importantly as a woman. You are more than an object, you are so much more than just a sex symbol. Treat yourself like royalty.
There are over 13, 000 varieties of Daffodil flowers. They are also known by the botanical name narcissus . They are beautiful plants and are easy to grow.
As I child I lived in a small community where people looked out for each other. Crime was almost non-existent. Neighbors helping neighbors. A neighbor cooking and giving dinner to another neighbor over the fence was a common occurrence. Most people farmed and they shared with each other. There was no need for anyone to go hungry.
You had a few who would try to reap people’s crops before they did, but it was never on a large scale. Teeth and tongue would meet at times but generally people got along. Every child had an Uncle and Aunt who wasn’t even blood relative. Adults protected children and children respected adults. Gone are those days. Is it too much to ask for a return of those good old days?
Stand up and take control
We live in a world where some people design the rules and others simply fall in line. Society put a lot of pressure on women and trying to live up to society’s norm can lead to unhappiness for a lot of women. An unmarried woman may find herself being asked, “When are you going to get married? When she finally does people start asking, “When are you going to have a baby? Because after all that’s what a woman is supposed to do.
If the marriage fail to produce a child, people are quick to point finger at the woman. “Oh she can’t have children or “Oh, she is barren. This is putting it mildly for women have been called mules for failing to produce children. In some cases it is not even her fault but rather the man, who is unable to impregnate her. However she gets the blame. I say to women, don’t be pressured by society’s’ norm. Live the life that makes you happy. Do what is best for you.
I am a lover of books. It does not matter the genre as long as the story is interesting I will read it. I read almost every book in the ‘Nancy Drew’, and ‘Hardy Boys’, series. I have read books by Agatha Christie, Louis L’Amour westerns, Harold Robbins, Mills and Boon books, Harlequin book, books by Mickey Spillane and by many other authors.
Whether it is romance, detective, mystery, historical novels, or espionage stories ( I used to love those)it didn’t matter. Once I started reading I didn’t want to put the book down until I knew how the story ended. I spent many nights up later reading because I couldn’t wait until the next day to read the ending.
Sadly I don’t read as much as I used to but I know I have to make the time to. What stories do you love.
