A message we cannot repeat often enough!!!!
October 2014
Today is the day
I am not giving up
again
like so many times
in my life.
Today is the day
I am not giving in
again
like so many times
in my life.
Today is the day
I believe in myself
at last
’cause I have proven:
I am enough!
This video has inspired this poem:

I believe though that it is not only women who should remember that. I believe all of us, no matter what gender, grow up to believe that we are not enough: Not beautiful enough. Not successful enough. Not man enough. Not womanly enough……
Women and men just react in a different way to those messages: Men tend to show their unloving selves in aggression outwards. Women rather inwards. And yes, there are all sorts of in between.
But in the end all of us have to struggle with past hurts, abuse, aggression and we struggle day in, day out to survive and make a life worth living for ourselves. Sometimes it works out. Sometimes we fail ~ ourselves and others.
But day in, day out we start again and do the best we can. And that is all that is needed.
Don’t judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got up again!”    Nelson Mandela
