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)


Happy Saturday. Peace of a Mountain.

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


Growing By The Minute


 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.

I Refuse to Shrink

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.”
