oh monday...

my quote for mY monday...

"she saw every ending as a new beginning...
celebrate her resiliency."
this weekend i ordered a couple of new books online. another great one by kobi yamada..."be". first page read...be present. the next page...in life, there are no ordinary moments. most of us never really recognize the most significant moments of our lives when they're happening by kathleen magee. i will say i am off to a good start at finding mE. i am helping myself by finding good, positive material to read during the day. the next book that struck me so i of course purchased it as well is..."a weekend to change your life: find your authentic self after a lifetime of being all things to all people" by joan anderson. i can not wait to start reading this. yes, i know i said read... i need to do these things to help me figure out where, what, why and who i am. i have begun this journey and i am sticking to it this year. it is only fair that i do so for my kids, my family and for myself. as many have told me...i can't love anyone else if i can't love myself. tis true! i will love myself this year and i will enjoy the new me i uncover. happy monday. *hugs* connie

Thanks for your uplifting words that so often inspire me. Yesterday I felt impressed to fight the blizzard and go to the RS lesson where we were reminded we must live by faith and not fear. I think maybe your blog helped me to realize what I was experiencing was perhaps fear of something.... Fear holds us back from being the women our friends, our sisters, our husbands, our children and others, even the Lord knows we can be. We find evidence of it in our worryings, our hesitations, our negative thoughts and our lack of action. We can do hard things, we can shine and we can fulfill our potential.(J.Scoma)We were reminded to replace fear with faith and good cheer and that's what I am promising myself to do, Connie, and to be of good cheer. As you know,I am and strongly believe in being and thinking positive. Your blog helps me every day I read it, especially lately, to be of good cheer. It appears your "SHE" book is helping you with your journey in this new year to find yourself and be of good cheer. D&C 68:6
I would like to challenge both you and me, as our goal for this coming year, along with anyone else who would like to be of good cheer this year, to memorize this verse. Afterall, you have an entire year and it reminds us to be of good cheer and not fear. I love you, baby!

You go with your bad self girl!
I can't tell you how many blogs I've read that started the new year with the same sentiment...
"gotta get back to me."

We'll get there my friend.....
