Something I’ve always believed in, is when people spew hateful insults in your direction or attempt with such ferocity to tear you down, they never had solid ground to stand on for themselves in the first place. That hate is not meant for you, it’s meant for them, they just don’t have very good sense of direction.
To this day, I have yet to be proven wrong. So, when someone is throwing unwarranted darts at you, dodge them and keep walking proud. You should never fight with a fool, for people looking in can’t tell the difference. Be golden, my Gems.
Let me start off by thanking the people who have read and shared my various posts so far. I’m really hoping that you are enjoying yourself and the content I’m bringing you. I’ve been trying to keep it entertaining as well as touch on some hard hitting topics with a dash of a few glimpses into my journey. And this is only the beginning, so I send my BIGGESTTT appreciations your way; for being here now, and here’s to hoping you stick around for what’s to come.
Now, on to the NEW STUFF news:
Every week, I will bring to the couch a delightfully inspirational and kick-ass woman (and the occasional male) from all over the world right here on PL’s couch; which could also mean your couch, or your office chair, whatever works. It’s my, slightly longer, version of Woman Crush Wednesday aka #WCW. This new feature will be titled On The Couch Today, and it will be a sub-menu item, under the menu item The Couch (duh). So you’ll be able to find all of the posts easily over time.
I think this is an exciting new feature, not only because this will feature women that we all likely know, but it could be your mom, or your dad, or your teachers, etc. This can go on forever. And it will as long as you’re right here with me. Show someone you care about, or look up to, a little appreciation by sending me an email with information, perhaps a picture, and I’d love to share it.
This will include the likes of Gloria Steinam, Ashton Kutcher, Oprah, Adele, Pharrell, Beyonce, Michelle Obama, Tupac, Hillary Clinton, Sheryl Sandberg, P!nk, Brene Brown, John Legend, (your mom’s name here), (my mom’s name here), (YOU), etc, etc, etc!!! My head is going to explode from all of the awesome people who have paved the way before us, during our generations and for our future generations. WOOO! I have my work cut out for me! But I’m SUPER excited about digging into it!
Please join in on the discussion on the couch to discuss these women, and the reasons they are an inspiration to you. Or maybe tell me why you don’t agree with it. Whatever works for you.
It launches on the first Wednesday of May; May 7, 2014. PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO STOP BY!!!
Share this as many times as you possibly can. I’m looking for inspiration to inspire you!
Life is funny in the way that we must struggle in order to learn valuable lessons. The fear of failing will ensure your stagnation. If you are immensely happy with where you are today and have no intent of change, then kudos to you and I wish you well and all of the happiness in all aspects, but if not, you mustn’t be afraid to break the mold you live in and push for greater. Indulge in your endeavors and find your happy. Fulfill your dreams. In order to do this, initially, you will not know what to do or why you’re doing it, but if you feel compelled, take a step towards it and keep pushing, if it’s what your journey beckons for.
I posted this picture on Instagram yesterday with the caption:
We figure it ALL out as we go along. If your mind, heart, and spirit are all in the right place, things will eventually fall exactly where they are supposed to. Trust yourself and move forward anyway. Fall, stumble, whatever you need to do to navigate through your journey. As long as you get it done.
