Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
– Calvin Coolidge (30th US president, 1872-1933)
It has been said that nature heals. The closer we get to forests, the sea, and to open, green spaces, the more peaceful we feel. Here is a touch of nature and song, with the music of beloved artist Jon Fromer who is not longer in this world. Peace of a Mountain is his song. Photography was taken in Middletown, California, by Lupita Peimbert. Feel free to share. #PeaceofaMountain #NatureHeals @Lupitanews
Life unfolds. People come, go, and may come back again. For now, I grow, in unexpected ways, starting over again, even if it means I must say goodbye to that old self part of mine who insists in showing up. I must grow and I must love, outside and inside. Forgive but don’t forget; forget and update; update and recalculate, and remember that I must grow up, out, around, and about, so that I give myself one and million other chances. In peace while growing by the minute.

My thoughts matter. My feelings matter. My voice matters.
And with or without anyone’s permission or approval,
I will continue to be who I am and speak my truth.
Even if it makes people angry.
Even if it makes them uncomfortable.
Even if they choose to leave.
I refuse to shrink. I choose to take up space.
I choose to honour my feelings.
I choose to give myself permission to get my needs met.
I choose to make self-care a priority. I choose me.”
