its great fun doing what you love

I have come to equate great fun is with reaching out to others irrespective who they are or what they believe in. Am sure to show compassion and give a listening hear to somebody that wants to talk or give a shoulder to one that needs it.

I have always been like that probably because, i used to watch my mother do same when i was growing up. She was always there for people she did not know, we were not wealthy but we were comfortable and her watch word has always been why keep it when you can share,

I found out that anytime i want to keep back things from others - friends, relative etc, i end up loosing it or it spoils therefore, i made up my mind to always give if when it hurts. Somebody once told me that when you assist a poor man, you are training your number one enemy. he told some convincing stories to buttress his points but it is neither here nor there.

Empowerment is what all of us need, it is nobody's prerogative. We all came to this forum to be empowered with knowledge to accomplish great things and what others thought are not achievable. We came together to learn from one another to enable us carry out our assignments in our different ways and places.

Lets continue to work together for the light to keep shining. Do not give up, We must achieve the change we yearn for, for our people and ourselves.

Keep the faith my heroines.

it is a matter of influence!

Your piece shows the ability of a mother to create the right atmosphere. I believe women are naturally designed to lead since we exudes so much influence. Your piece has shown that women play a great role in instiling values. Good work!

thanks for sharing this insight...I am amazed by the influence that our mothers have on our lives and behaviours. I hope one day we can read stories of fathers' influences as frequent as mothers'.

all the best

Lets keep the light shining

I read this article from Harvard Business Review and I couldn't agree more...

The happiest people I know are dedicated to dealing with the most difficult problems. Turning around inner city schools. Finding solutions to homelessness or unsafe drinking water. Supporting children with terminal illnesses. They face the seemingly worst of the world with a conviction that they can do something about it and serve others.
