It was a pleasure to be asked to address so many different women this morning at the launch if the Magazine entitled "U Are Not Alone" by Wonderfully Made Woman.
A magazine full of women's stories of hope. Collated together to bring hope and a feeling of can do to others.
A problem shared is a problem halved. We all have stories to tell. Some happy ones and some not so happy. However, we can all and actually do find inspiration in hearing the stories of others. Through listening to others we often find that we have much in common and secretly admire.
This is my point: let us not admire in secret and actually reach out and let 'her' know that you admire what she has said, or done. You will feel a deep happiness to see and know you made another woman, a sister happy.
Even if you are jealous, that's ok. This means you secretly have admiration and that's ok. Speak it and learn how to. Do not allow jealousy to turn to hatred, because that is unhealthy.
Quote of the day: Admire and Aspire.
