~ i wonder ~

...hhhmmmmm, i

what kind of woman will i be today?


will i think clearly
and react to pressures with controlled calmness 
creating a positive ripple effect  ~


or

become bent out of shape,
because i allow myself to be caught up in negativity
and make things appear worse because i'm out of focus...



do i dare love myself
the way i am...

 and continue striving
to be the best authentic self i can be,
building on what i hope is a more
~ graceful foundation ~




or

will i allow self doubt
to render me useless...


 

  
speechless
and
unable to spread inspiration...

  


will my tattered wings
 be a strong enough to fly against all odds
ready to meet the challenges of the day
participating in each and every moment ~

  


or

will i instead,
sit in a corner
and be merely a spectator
and watch the world go by...



  
will i drink in each and every precious moment
and be grateful to count my blessings in this day ~




realizing that none of us know the hours we have been given.
and so,
 instead of wasting time




couldn't i instead savor each and every drop
stirring up sweetness as i go??




hhhmmmmm

yes,

i  ~

just which women i will choose today...
