Listen Carefully When People Say, “I’m Okay”

Listen to Hear

When people respond to your greeting saying they are “Okay,” listen carefully and look in their eyes. They may very well not be okay.

Wonderful Women

I’m a big fan of women who snort when they laugh.

Women who overshare awkward truths when the conversation stalls.

I’m a big believer in singing loudly in the car whenever possible and I love pulling alongside a fellow diva doing the same.

I’m a big fan of women who love women,

who spot toilet paper on the shoes and help each other out, when Mother Nature calls.

I’m a huge believer in comparison being the thief of joy, that dimming someone else’s light, won’t ever make yours shine brighter.

I just can’t get enough of those women who are unashamedly themselves, in technicolour glory.

I’m a lover of laughter and those moments when the tears start to flow, give me life.

I think the best therapy, is quality time with a friend who listens without judgement.

I’m a big fan of women who break, who share, who rebuild each other and cheer them along the way.

I’m grateful for this world half-full of fabulous females, I see you all.
