"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Brave Girls Club and my Birdie

So excited that my little birdie painting
"Young At Heart" was
featured today on
  "A Little Bird Told Me" daily encouragements.
Brave Girls Club was founded by two wonderful  women,
artist, Melody Ross and her sister, Kathy Wilkins.
You can sign up for yourself to receive these 
motivating and encouraging words here.
Or click on this button below and it takes you 
directly to the sign up page.

 Here is an example of the daily email  from
 the Brave Girls Club. 
Dear Blessed Girl,

There is enough for everyone. If we have what you need, and if we work hard for what you want, this absolutely does not take away the ability or opportunity for others to do the same.

There is plenty of goodness for everyone to be surrounded by it. There is plenty of money to go around in the world. There is plenty of love for everyone to be bathed in it. Sometimes it is somewhere different than where we are looking, but there is always always always enough...more than enough!

PLEASE, wonderful friend, PLEASE do not let yourself get tricked into the idea that if your dreams are coming true, or that your life is good, or that you have found peace....that it means that you took that opportunity away from someone else.

AND PLEASE do not let yourself EVER believe that because someone else is living the kind of life that you want to live, that “those kinds of lives” are all taken up....it just is not so! There is enough for you, too.

We all have our own paths to take to find what we are seeking. We are all meant to seek for different things! Just be who YOU are and let others be who they are. Cheer each other on. Support each other....remind each other that there’s plenty to go around.

Life is so good...and you are so loved.

♥♥♥♥♥♥   ♥♥♥♥♥♥   ♥♥♥♥♥♥

Hope you all have a
 "young at heart day"
and do something child like.
That means a lot of laughing going on
and maybe even kicking up your heels!!

Big Hugs,

Hi! I didn't see your birdie last week and I'm sorry I missed him. He's adorable! Congrats on being featured, and thank you for coming over to meet me! I'm glad you did, I see we have the same heart....we both are working in the caregiving industry! But, really, I felt a kinship when I scrolled down a couple posts and saw my most favorite quote EVER from the Velveteen Rabbit! Wonderfu! Hope to stay connected!

Huggs from Arizona,
