Great Women Part One: Eleanor Roosevelt

In her words....

'No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.'

'The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.'

Read more about this fabulous woman here:

'It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness'

'Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living the other helps you make a life.'

'Do one thing everyday that scares you.'

'A woman is like a teabag; you never know how strong it is until it is in hot water.'

'Do what you feel is in your heart - you'll get criticized anyway.'

Teach our daughters to be REAL

Being REAL with Dignity and Integrity is only sprouting words, unless acted upon and practiced. That's when the 'real' worth of a person shows up. Strength, and courage play a huge part in the willingness to underake these principles and not give in to fake.

Find the real you...

 

 


That moment before something wonderful

It's that moment before something wonderful...


It's the little things that speak loudly

Observations of a Middle-aged Dragon with a tattoo:  

 

Some words of wisdom. (Not mine)

They may strike a chord with you …

BE YOURSELFDon’t worry about changing for others

Discover who you are and back yourself

Create your own success and don't resent other's.

Own up to your shit. In the long run you'll achieve more when you do

Don't give up if you fail at first, gather yourself and try again. 

You'll become stronger and smarter.

I read these points and one invariably helps me.

OR

I read them with a glass of wine or whatever is my want, and find at the end I’m smiling and I have a plan. 

SET yourself free, even if just for a little. Dare you to…


Give someone your time

Sometimes life throws us lots of curve balls. When it feels like we have no more energy left to swing at them and it all gets too much - it’s the simple things in life that can give us some respite and hope that tomorrow will be a better day.

Slow down to listen to the world, that is, really hear and understand the gifts that are around you. It’s usually the simple things that we frequently overlook that are the best at nurturing and sustaining us. That is peace and release.

Time is a valuable currency (Ruby Brown; MADLY: Too Much Too Soon), 

Take a Breath: Give your time to someone who needs it. Soothe them and you’ll find yourself feeling brighter.

Here's how using gentle and fierce is done unapologetically. From the woman who put the "energetically" into UNAPOLOGETICALLY.

Snap out of it and be you!


'Cause you're beautiful!

Observations of a Middle-aged Dragon with a tattoo:  

There are many words to define Beauty. 

Find your OWN definition. Don't forget to use the WHOLE crayon box or all the Dictionary, whatever takes your fancy. It's only up to you.

Don’t be swayed by lesser people’s opinions - reach for your full potential, remembering; you do deserve happiness. 

(Sage Thompson: Quote from Truly: Too Much is Never Enough. ..... A.M. Jaxon ©)

What sums you up, makes you smile because you're being true to yourself. 

Find it. Dare you to....


These words may help you push through any New Year blues

Observations of a Middle-aged Dragon with a tattoo:  

 

Finding life TOUGH at the moment? 

These words may help to bring a little peace.

1.  EMBRACE alone time. Don’t avoid it. 

 

    2.  It’s the now that defines your future. Don’t dwell on the past. 

 

3.  Dont act like the world owes you. You create your reality.

 

 

 

4. Trust the journey (this is the “real” challenge). Don’t expect immediate results:      

5. Don’t waste energy on things you can’t control.

  

I’m not great at taking this advice either. I’m not going to say I’m “holier than thou” because I'm NOT. I’ve just done a lot of dumb stuff. But more often than not when I’m feeling down or stressed-out, I read these points and one invariably helps me.

OR

I read them with a glass of wine or whatever is my want, and eventually I'm smiling and I have a plan or an idea to rise stronger tomorrow. 

SET yourself free, even if just for a little. Dare you to...

 


Why do we label people?

Observations of a Middle-Aged Dragon with a Tattoo:

 

Everyone seems to want to LABEL everyone else these days…

 

What if we STOPPED and stuck to finding out about people the old-fashioned way. LIKE: Taking the time and talking to each other. 

Rather than labelling being about WHO YOU ARE can we just go back to labels helping us with HOW TO…..

Go on! Talk to someone instead of labelling them.  Dare you to...
