With the recent events, I want you to know that I strongly believe that all people should be treated with respect and kindness. No one is above another. We are all brothers and sisters. I believe that hate slows us down and makes us lose focus of our personal progression and potential.
I write about incredible women that do incredible things. I write about hope, love, standards, art (it’s meaning), color, design, style and the beauty around us. I want this blog to inspire and uplift.
As life continues to get harder, as things don’t go our way, I strongly encourage you to HOLD ON. Each of us, (just like the beautiful women I’ve interviewed) can and are changing the world everyday, because they rise up and continue to keep going, no matter how hard, how painful, or how uncomfortable, they hold on to hope.
The power of hope and the power of one person’s influence can be incredible. If you don’t want “hard”, you don’t want to get hurt, you don’t want to feel pain or be challenged, it’s easy to stop trying, give up, walk away and simply let go. But we are all better than that. I believe that the only true failure is when you give up.
Life isn’t easy, and holding on is often extremely painful and hard many times over, but know that if we take risks and step up when it’s tough, don’t take no for an answer, stand up to bullies and have hope, we can hold on to what’s right and hold on strong and never let go. And when we continue to do that, that’s when we make a difference. Continue to lift others up and be an example for good. Love people. Forgive people. Teach others through your example to love more. When we do this we teach others to do the same.
