Quotable Women ~ May 30th

Check out the original blog for more inspiration.

Blog of a Mad Black Woman

The way I looked when I started modelling – I was a skinny schoolgirl, stuffing tissues into my little 32A bra. I wasn’t trying to be that thin; I was perfectly healthy, but still – that look is a total impossibility for women over the age of 20. Fashion has a lot to answer for, doesn’t it?

Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey

Here is the cover of my new book, designed by my talented husband/illustrator, John. As you can see I have been very busy lately publishing two books. This new book is my latest children’s book for PS-Grade 1, ages 1-6. It is dedicated to my youngest grandson, Sebastian, who loves animals, especially monkeys.

I am excited to introduce, Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey, which is my eighth children’s book. As with all my children’s books I include a life lesson for children to learn as they read and enjoy the story. The life lesson in this book is to be kind to animals.

Our focus in life always defines us and what we get out of life. We get more of what we focus on. Many athletes use hypnosis for mental focus and to set clear intentions.

Mistrust (Another self-reminder)

If you like this post, go check out the blog, plenty more wise words there.

The power of Quantum Thinking

It took me a while to realise that I was living in a state of constant mistrust. I was taught to be careful with the people around me: “don’t talk to strangers” they told me.

I was taught to mistrust outcomes, “don’t expect the best and you won’t be disappointed”.  I was also taught to trust myself only and not to expect anything from other people so “they wouldn’t let me down.”

In fact as I grew up I learnt to mistrust almost everything and everyone. Police, news, politicians, doctors, circumstances, the weather, religions and specially the future.
