Today's Quote

Take the word victim off of your person--out of your vocabulary. It reeks with the old energy and does not suit your magnificence.

i bought a new pair of pumps and wore them to school on the first day of second semester today!

yes, good old, solid, sensible, plain black, 1 and 1/2-inch- heeled pumps!

and im intent on wearing them during "uniform" days, 4 days a week, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays now. : )

imagine that. me, who always chafed and strained against wearing shoes like these. the only other pair of pumps i have is plain and black indeed, but with a sexy design at the arch and at three-inched heels at that (more fit for bedroom play than for walking around school corridors heehee!)

if shoes tell the many moods of a woman and the phase in life she's in, well maybe mine has always been open and free-spirited-- with open-toed, stringed sandals; whimsical designs and flirty colors, or colored/patterned pumps with pointy ends and in all sorts of heel types and lengths.

now, i've come to this.


i must really be finally settling down deep inside, huh. : )


i still have to get to wearing the current prescribed school uniform, though, as my uniform is still "any-form" that i feel like wearing.

Have I Become A Crone Even Before Menopause? (Is this Why I Sometimes Feel I am Neither Here nor There, Never Belonging Anywhere?)

From "Crones Don't Whine: Concentrated Wisdom for Juicy Women" by Jean Shinoda Bolen:

I am proposing that it is time to reclaim and redefine 'crone' from the word pile of disparaging names to call older women, and to make becoming a 'crone' a crowning inner achievement of the third phase of life.

To be a crone is about inner development, not outer appearance. A crone is a woman who has wisdom, compassion, humor, courage, and vitality. She has a sense of truly being herself, can express what she knows and feels, and take action when need be. She does not avert her eyes or numb her mind from reality. She can see the flaws and imperfections in herself and others, but the light in which she sees is not harsh and judgmental. She has learned to trust herself to know what she knows.

Those crone qualities are not acquired overnight. One does not become a full-fledged crone automatically following menopause, any more than growing older and wiser go hand in hand. These are decades that follow menopause in which to grow psychologically and spiritually.

Stop Acting Small, 2

Barbara Stanny, in Secrets of Six-Figure Women, says,

Every time you leave the beaten path and aim for the exceptional, every time you silence your fear and speak with your own voice, every time you stop acting small and start taking up space, you are owning your power and emancipating others to follow in your footsteps.

Are You In A Toxic Relationship?

I just took this online self-quiz and I am glad my results (0-4) confirm what I already know: I am in a healthy, loving, affirming one at last!

But, answering the test brought on memories of previous relationships with horrific levels of toxicity!!! Ohhhh, by the grace of God...!

Well, one can never know and appreciate Light without experiencing darkness, too, I guess.

Still, what a blessing and supreme joy to have finally arrived where I am, at last!

Thank you, God, for Your Amazing Love and Grace!!!

Do you eat it or marry it?

for B

Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes
I see my future in an instant
And there it goes
I think I've found my best friend
I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only this sense of completion
And in your eyes
I see the missing pieces
I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home

I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I've found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

Complete set of results

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.
