Malala DayEarlier this year, I wrote a blog post about Malala Yousafzai. The Taliban tried to assassinate her on October 9, 2012 because she wanted to go to school and learn. Miraculously, she survived this brutal attack and today is Malala Day. She is an inspiration to many!

In the words of Malala:  “Malala Day is not my day. It is the day of every girl and every boy. It is a day when we come together to raise our voices, so that those without a voice can be heard.”

This Facebook post reminded me of Malala’s mission:

If you’re not willing to learn,

No one can help you.

If you are determined to learn,

No one can stop you!

Malala gives true meaning to the phrase “YOU GO GIRL!!!”

  6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
  7. Remember:  Less is often more.
  8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places (so true with traffic).
  9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time.
  10. Take one day at a time.

Maya AngelouThe day already felt heavy … and then I read the headline:  “The world lost a wonderful woman in Maya Angelou.” The day just got darker … what a tremendous loss for the world. Luckily, her words are still with us; her dear spirit touched millions of hearts. She truly was a phenomenal woman, an inspiration to humankind with her beautiful words in this poem…

Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

From And Still I Rise by Maya Angelou. Rest easy phenomenal woman…

Truly inspirational!

Dancing with the StarsI was glued to “The Voice” all season, until all of my favorites were eliminated. Last Monday night, on a whim, I decided to turn on “Dancing with the Stars.”

I was absolutely mesmerized by Meryl Davis (Olympic gold-medal winner of 2014 ice dancing) and Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s freestyle dance. Their dancing left me speechless … and weeping. Absolutely beautiful! Then, ABC TV shared Amy Purdy’s story with her partner Derek Hough. (Amy lost both of her feet to bacterial meningitis and Derek was so gentle with her, as she not only struggled with the dance moves but became an amazing dancer throughout the season.) Wow! Every time I watched Amy dance, I was moved to tears. What an inspiration to all of us.

Meryl and Max ended up with the mirror-ball trophy. I believe they won for their talent and artistry (and undeniable chemistry!) … Amy and Derek won the hearts of the viewers and were definitely the winners of truly amazing inspiration.

So glad I switched from “The Voice” to “Dancing with the Stars” on this one night!
