Be Courageous

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.”

John A. Shedd

Where is your journey taking you? Be courageous! It’s time to set sail and move forward.

Yes, there may be some storms, but you were meant to go forward. You were created for it. Don’t stop now!

You know you can do this.

Peace.

Courage in the Mirror

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”

Maya Angelou

When you looked in the mirror today, what did you see? Did you see someone that can make a difference in this world? You are someone that can not only survive, but you can thrive and be a source of strength for others.

And always remember…..you are never alone. Not ever.

Practice courage today.

Peace.

Blogging Encouragement

How can we blog effectively in this social media driven world we live in? Do we need a bunch of new apps on our phone? Not really!

Be who you are, and continue to create the wonderful poetry, fiction, quotes, photographs, and art you do every day so beautifully!

And here are a few tips that I’ve learned:  

Be there.

One of the most important things we can do to improve the health of our blogs is to visit other bloggers. If all you are doing is posting, that will not work out very well. Think of blogging as a community and we need to visit one another.

I had a college professor once that said 90% of life is just showing up. It’s that way with the blogging community as well.

Practice your craft.

Whatever you do in an excellent way…..give it your best! Write your best possible article or reach for that camera or drawing pencils and paints. Work on your projects and then don’t hold back!

You not only have a gift to share – you are the gift!

Be positive.

Yes, we all get down (even me!) but don’t live there. Offer hope and encouragement in your posts. Tell the world about the beauty and power of love.

This also includes leaving some comments to encourage others.

And enjoy yourselves!

Thank you so much for reading!

Peace.

Filled with Power and Beauty

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” 

Booker T. Washington

Wishing you great success today as you overcome obstacles, inspiring others with your courage!

May your sails be filled with power and beauty!

The Angels Know

20170628_172233

The angels know that slavery comes from the hearts evil men, not really from our southern border, and that drugs are shipped sneaking through our ports of entry, stamped with approval.

I wonder if heaven weeps over the poor….needing jobs, needing some food….needing to escape violence….

I sure hope so.

“El Paso has been one of the safest cities for the past 20 years.”

Beto O’Rourke, resident of Texas
