April was supposed to be different. There are goals I was hoping to have achieved by the beginning of April and that has made the past few days gloom and unbearable and not just because of the rain. I know some goals require a bit more time and patience but I still beat myself up and felt like a complete failure.one thing I have come to learn about myself is that I love being in control and control is the one thing I don’t have; haven’t had for a while now. Remembering that I need to let go and let God (after bawling my eyes out underneath a blanket for three hours and twenty two minutes) was like a silken scarf wrapping around me and receiving an email from a friend on ‘7 things every woman should know’ gave me a much needed jolt of confidence to get up, dress up and show up. I hope it helps you in one way or the other.

Oh they will stop and stare, you most divine creature with unapologetic skin and fearless features. Learn to take a compliment. Settle into being the center of things.
Keep a few great friends. When they tell you harsh truths, learn to listen for the love. Growth is necessary and annoying at times, but look and you will always find the silver lining.
Feed yourself kind words, chocolate, quality people, random first dates, solitude, orgasms, and books. You will need really, really good books. Live in the story of them.
You’re a woman and that alone makes you pretty damn remarkable.
If all else fails, repeat after me: I AM ENOUGH.I AM ENOUGH.I AM MOST CERTAINLY ENOUGH!
