Calm

Posted: March 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it.

The Power We Have

Posted: March 9, 2016 in Blog article, Thoughts

Sometimes I feel helpless to the powers that be. I do realize however that we the people as consumers DO have some power.

Jeniffer Louden tweeted this timely article entitled; How shoppers can help prevent Bangladesh-type disasters

For instance, the tragic Bangladesh garment factory fire that killed many workers, mostly women earning very little money. Much of what was found in the burnt remains of the building were tattered garments meant for Walmart, Disney and other big clothing corporations.

We have the power say no to these corporations. We do not have to accept corporate reality. We can say we don’t want poor women treated unfairly. We have the opportunity to make the world a better place and bring it up a level.

I have been buying my clothing from secondhand stores for as long as I can remember, it”s become an art form for me. I do still buy new underwear but most other garments are used. I’ve stopped using shampoo and conditioner on my hair opting for Baking Powder to wash with and Vinegar for a rinse, baking powder for brushing my teeth and I don’t wear make-up except for once in a great while. While I feel comfortable with this I am not asking any of you to do any of this. I would like you to read the linked article and see what options are available for you.

The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice —
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do —
determined to save
the only life you could save.”
Mary Oliver

Courage

Posted: March 2, 2016 in quote, quotes by women, Thoughts

Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
“I will try again tomorrow.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher
