Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. I am still a little behind but I am hoping to be caught up today if possible. The title of this blog is something that is just going to touch on the way that I feel, the people in my life and one person who is truly inspirational to me.
When I was 16 I got pregnant with my first daughter and I was told that I would be on Welfare for the rest of my life. Uh excuse me No I won't!!!! No matter how many time I was looked down on or talked down to because of it I had a No Matter What attitude. I knew that No Matter What I could do anything that I set my mind to. This is something that was instilled in me by my mom.
My mother always told me that no matter the situation there is always a solution and you just had to find it. Hence my attitude of No matter what you say, I know I can and I will if I put my best efforts into it. I ended up having my 2nd child before high school graduation but again, no matter what I was determined to make something of my life. I graduated, went on to college and got 2 degrees and have been off Welfare for over 20 yrs now.
It doesn't happen over night but that is ok. We must always keep trying until we get it right. The only way to failure is to not try and I refuse failure even when it looks like all is lost.
There is a lady in AVON that is a true inspiration and I am sharing the video for you to watch. Her Name is Molly Stone-Bibb and she has overcome so much in her life and truly makes a difference in those that she meets and talks to. I haven't had the pleasure to personally meet her but in August that is going to change. She is going to be a the Orlando Conference that AVON is having and I will be there. If you want to go then I suggest you read the Next Post to find out how.
Her group is ONWARD! NO MATTER WHAT and I thought that was a perfect fit to my post today. No matter your situation, circumstances, your up bringing or those around you, if you want to succeed at something then you can do it with a lot of hard work and determination. Thank you Molly Stone-Bibb for your Can Do Attitude and your infectious personality and outlook on life and all things.
No Matter What:
when someone tells you that you can't achieve something...YES YOU CAN
when someone says you are not good enough....YES YOU ARE
when things look bad....YES YOU CAN CHANGE IT
when you think all is lost .....YOU ARE NOT
when you are down ....YOU SMILE AND MAKE IT BETTER
when you are on the edge...YOU DANCE AND COME BACK
Your attitude is the major factor in how you respond to different situations in life, love and all things in this world. With a smile you can change someones day regardless of how yours is going. With a hug you can make someone feel loved when they can't feel it for themselves. With laughter you can cure someones depression. With a lending ear you can help solve another persons problems. You Matter, I Matter, We ALL Matter.
Turn your NO into a Yes and watch how things change for you.
