Put On Your "Big Girl" Panties....

A POEM ABOUT OUR GIRLFRIENDS (this, including the image, was sent to me by my mama via e-mail as one of those messages to pass along. I owe my "suck it up, move on, and learn from it" mentality to her. She raised me good, that woman!)

Someone will always be prettier.
Someone will always be smarter.
Some of their houses will be bigger.
Some will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school.
And their husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go, and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it!
The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart.
And the most highly favored
woman on your job may be unable to have children.
And the richest woman you know,
she's got the car, the house, the clothes~~~~
might be lonely.
And the word says, 'If I have not Love, I am nothing.'
So, again, love you.
Love who you are.
Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say,
'I am too Blessed to be Stressed and too Anointed, to be Disappointed!'
'Winners make things happen~~
Losers let things happen.'

So in conclusion, I say: May you smile, stand taller, and enjoy your reflection!

(..and how hot is this Iman-meets-Cruella Deville love child? What an image...)

I love this poem Elana. It's all so true! I learned this years ago. I'd rather have love than all the riches in this world. Love conquers all! Thanks for sharing it.

Elana may I share this with the members of my board? I think they would get a kick out of it. Let me know.

OMG Melissa! Feel free. It was just sent to me, so I believe that's a free-for-all. I think all women everywhere should read it. So do with it what you will! ;)
