To all the girls and women of World Pulse and around the world, these words are for you:

What an honor and blessing it is to be here to connect and hear your voices. As a Listener for this year's Voices of Our Future program, I dedicate the words of my upcoming "For My Girls" book to you in hopes that they keep you STRONG and INSPIRED as you raise your amazing voice.

For My Girls (Copyrighted 2010 Lola Tsai)

My dear girls around the world
There are things I want to say.
I want to tell you why you’re special
And how you change the world today.

My lovely girls around the world
There’s a beauty in you I see.
It’s not your face or what you wear
It’s the happy smile you give to me.

My beautiful girls around the world
I sense a power in you.
It’s not your body or how you move
It’s the kind of things you do.

My bright girls around the world
I love the words you speak.
Always know that you have a choice
To create how you think.

My confident girls around the world
You are strong and tall.
Use your voice to express yourself
And move hearts, one and all.

My sweet girls around the world
You have amazing hearts.
When you nurture and you love
You shine among the stars.

My courageous girls around the world
Your fears give you fire.
You show there’s only room for dreams
And living your heart’s desires.

My wise girls around the world
Live the nature in you.
Know that strength and grace from this
Earth lie within you too.

My magnificent girls around the world
You hold so much light.
Just by shining the truth in you
You expand the energy of life.

My visionary girls around the world
You were born to lead.
Hold some hands and show the way
You’ll discover what you seek.

My divine girls around the world
When all is said and done…
Just be happy and full of passion
Because being you is so much fun!

Along this journey if you ever forget
Come back to these words and say
“I know I’m special in all that I am
So I change the world today”.

Thank you!

Oh thank you so much for your words, I'm so happy you have nieces to share the poem with!
I'm working on getting the poem into a book/ e-book as well as little posters/ e-poster to share around the world. I will email you when it's done? The book has amazing illustrations that I hope all girls will love :)

I did read your profile/ journal yesterday! and learned so much about the current state (or lack thereof) of priorities that the Canadian government put on women's issues. Thank you for sharing, I'm looking to learning more from you!

Enjoy today :)

Love & Strength in Your Words...

Dear Lola ~

Your vision and gift of words of encouragement, strength, love and hope for the girls of the world is BEAUTIFUL!
I, too, will join you as a listener for this year's VOF program, an honor I cherish dearly. We feel the spirit of our sisters and the girls/women of the world as they share their stories from the heart and souls of their being where truth and beauty lies. Thank you for caring and gifting us with your poetry and depth of love!

We are almost neighbors as I live in Seattle and work as a counselor at the University of Washington. I will be visiting a good friend in Vancouver, BC this weekend and she is a life coach and someone you would enjoy connecting with. My cell number is 206/356-7654 if you want to give me a shout and maybe we can meet up for coffee or tea!

With gratitude and love,

Linda Ando

Hi Linda!

Dear Linda,

Thank you so much for your words! I am so excited to have someone near by to share the VOF experience with!

I majored in Psychology and had thought of going into counseling psych :) so I know we'd have a lot to talk about!

I definitely would love to meet for coffee! I will text you and give you a call today to see what time works best for you!

Yay! :)

Much love & blessings,
Lola

Thank you! :)

Hi Gifty,

I'm so happy to hear from you and know that my words connected with your heart :)
I have read your profile before and know that you do some great work with girls...I'm so honored and thrilled to be meeting women like you who share the same passion of empowering our girls.

I am in the process of making the "For My Girls" poem into a book. There are beautiful illustrations done by a good friend of mine and I am going to self-publish. My dream is to have it translated into as many languages as possible so that as many girls around the world can have a copy in their hands. When it's done, I will let everyone know and I'm hoping through World Pulse, it will be an avenue for me to connect with women worldwide, to collaborate together in the sharing of these words with girls. Let's stay in touch.

Sending you love and happy blessings :)
Lola
