Reblog from the Brave Girls Club

I just discovered this website a couple of weeks ago... The Brave Girls Club. They send these fabulous, comforting, inspirational little notes that just make my day. Here was today's. I'm going to emphasize the parts that spoke to me. You know... because it's my blog!

"Dear Beautiful Girl,

It is important to remember that no one has the right or the power to take away your choices, your thoughts, or the essence of who you are.

Lots of things in life can be taken from us, but most of the things that are most valuable cannot. The things that matter most cannot be seen and really CAN be protected fiercely by our own selves so that they are not violated or crushed in any way. No person and no situation can make us feel bad or small or stuck unless we allow it to. It is our choice.

Be careful with your dreams. Be kind to them. Protect your choices and your ability to make them. Make good choices so that you are not chained by the consequences of poor ones. Watch your thoughts and make sure that what you want most is what you are thinking most. Stand up for what you believe in and don't settle for anything else.

We can decide what kind of life we want to have, and we are the ONLY ones who can decide. We can't wait around for things to happen. We must take action to make them happen. No more excuses, baby. Let's do this.

You are phenomenal, courageous, and wonderful."

Isn't that great?! Be sure to stop by their blog and look around. For now, Nicky and I are going to curl up and go to sleep. The sooner we do, the sooner Nick's Daddy will wake us up in the morning when he gets off duty! Nitey nite!



  1. HI Tammy! I received one of your beautiful cards from Jessica's 52 Card Swap! I just wanted to stop in and say HEllO and I also love the Brave Girls Club!

    Happy New Year!

  2. As I am in the midst of some pretty big changes here in my life, I know these words are true --- the words we tell ourselves "I can do it! I can!" matter --- and are the difference between success and failure, sometimes. Thanks for sharing.
