Try to be a rainbow in someone else's cloud. #MayaAngelou

"You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies. You may trod me with the very dirt But still, like dust, I rise. Just like the moon and sun with the certainty of tides, just like hopes and springing high, still I rise. Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling like tear drops weakened by my soulful cries? Out of the huts of history's shame, I rise. From the past that's rooted in pain, I rise. Into the daybreak that's wonderfully clear, I rise. Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I rise. I am the dream and the hope of a slave, I rise" I RISE #MayaAngelou #mondaymotivation #sharetheinspiration

The real difficulty is to overcome how you think of yourself 💁‍♀️ #mayaangelou #sweetdreams #timeforachange #worthit #growing #bebrave #goodnight #kisses #beyourself

I've never held much weight with the material things in life, I've seen those close to me innocently enjoy nice things but I've also been privy to those who hold their entire esteem to their bank balance. I've been fortunate in recent years to have learnt some valuable life lessons. I don't pertain to have all the answers but I do know this, I enjoy the company of those that live real lives of decency and love, they enhance my spirit!!, as opposed to the veneer life of one-upmanship! It's a futile pursuit to a destination of discontent. I have a life where I'm blessed to enjoy both sides of the spectrum & I'm happier with less but learning the balance. Success? The internal satisfaction of a life well lived, how I made you feel in your day not what I stand to take from you. I tread carefully in my day as my life could be the dream of another, your life could be my essence be content with what you have, and share it with those you love. You might be having a hard day today, remember what's important, those you hold dear, we were placed on this planet here to connect not to conform. Social media is awash with mantras of 'Crushing' 'Killing' 'Slaying' life (tad aggressive) , girls captioning about 'getting that money' & being a 'boss babe' ,I'd like to know what happens when you 'get that money' ? Are you happier? More at ease? Thought not, good luck on that hamster wheel though. Afterall love is the rarest commodity of them all (it's a pity this truth alludes Wallstreet, the Wolf of Wallstreet might have had a happier ending). I was taught to dance to my own tune and defy the masses, call me old fashioned but the fast track to my heart isn't money it's kindness & love 💜💜💜 . . . . . #love #lifelessons #alifewelllived #aspirations #lifegoals #spirtualinspiration #truth #contentment #wellbeingwarrior #lifehack #solution #loveiskey #mayaangelou #footprints @flanagan_n_again

One of the biggest challenges on my secondary infertility journey has been to do the “work” and make decisions. Much of the time, the research is done by me alone, and I often wish I could turn back time and approach testing after loss in a different way. It could have changed things for us sooner. It could have saved a lot of heartache. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hindsight (I know!) is a wonderful thing. And while I accept that I am where I am, with the knowledge I have, just doing the best I can, I thought it might help to explain how I‘d approach things if I could take myself back to two years ago. It won’t help me now but “normal” recurrent miscarriage test results often leave couples feeling angry, sad and lost, mixed emotions that I remember all too well. Having been asked about the next steps to take when there are no answers, a REALLY difficult question to answer as we’re all so different and each journey is unique, I felt the easiest way to share suggestions was simply to ask myself “what would I do differently?” So I hope my round up (of sorts) helps. Grab a cuppa. It’s a long ‘un.

Control. ( it’s not just a great Janet Jackson song) Wise words from a wise woman. This quote speaks to me so deeply, because she’s right. You are in control of how you react to the things that happen to you and around you. This is ultimately the only thing you can control. Your reaction. • #mayaangelou #sundaythoughts #quoteoftheday #wisewoman #wisewords #control #keepyourcool #reactive #reflective #exhalethebullshit #youreworthit #smile
