DON'T FORGET WHEN A DOOR CLOSES, ANOTHER OPENS
Another very early Monday is here. Another of the last free hours before we all start the week and go back to the rat race of working like machines. For the few of us who really enjoy our jobs we are already planning how we will get the week done with all the things we have to do and all the added things we want to do.
A while ago I asked you to stop and listen to the silence and smell the roses. I do hope that you took this information into your hands and decided to do just that.
We are in the third month of the year already and it is time to set goals and make plans for the rest of the year. Hard, you may be saying. However, just focus on the truth – it is not impossible. When one door closes, another opens. This is a true saying and one we should heed. Never give up or give in, my Belizean women and womenfrom other country who read this blog.
You have to remember that there is a lot to focus on: your food intake, getting the kids and a husband off to school and work every day and then settling into your work space. Whether it is in the home(where I believe there is more to do than in an office)or in the firm or institution where you exercise your talent, do it well so it is no big feat to focus on yourself. Becuse that is the problem. We are too busy doing for others that we tend to forget ourselves. I must tell you this right now. IF we don’t focus on ourselves pretty soon we will be lost in the weaves to continue being angry and dissatisfied by the things that we go.
So take up a challenge. Try new things or new ways of doing things FOR YOURSELF. Always be courteous to others. Be caring and kind. Be truthful. If you can't say the truth DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL! It is the only way we will attain fulfilment.
Have a great day and remember to be all that you can be. YOU ARE WOMAN! BE PROUD OF YOURSELF!
