VOF week 2 ( possibilities )


I can not say my life has been a smooth ride all along.
I have faced challenges along the way, some of which I did not know how to handle..
Yet I give the credit to a mother who was always there to help me in the situations I faced.
It is unfortunate that she is Late, yet I thank her for she left me with a power that only a woman can give-Courage!

Have you ever wondered why a single woman is able to raise socially acceptable children to a higher % than men?, why she never abandons the family when things become tough?, it is because she has COURAGE to face what seems to be unatainable.

This is the reason why I have come to identify with pulsewire.
The women are courageous, but more so they have seen a possibilty in what seemed inpossible.
in my life I have always wanted to look for a possibility when faced with a situation presenting itself as impossible.I have a strong belief we can make an impact for a better tomorrow!

I usually say- Everything is possible if only we think positively-

I agree that women find incredible strength within themselves when facing challenges but also have the strength to reflect on their situations and make positive changes. I have met some amazing women here on PulseWire who are moving mountains and are such an inspiration to others. Here, we are reminded to believe in ourselves and that through our faith in our own strength and courage, we can indeed create a future where anything could be possible.

A Mother's Responsibility

I am one of your listeners for your week 2 VOF assignment. Your concise description of a single mother's success in raising her children is right on. I feel it is not only a mother's responsibility to instill this courage in her child or children but in some way it is unavoidable, especially in the case of a single mother. I am sorry your mother is Late as well - it is so hard to lose your parent although it sounds like you have a happy reminder of her every day in the power she left you.

In reading your assignment I found myself longing to hear more of your vision for yourself not only through World Pulse and Voices of our Future but also for you on a personal level. What is it about Voices of our Future that drew you to participate? What do you enjoy writing about? In what areas of life do you like to think positively and are you helping others to do this as well? You have much wisdom to pass on and this is a safe, nurturing place to do that. I look forward to hearing more of your courageous voice in the next assignments because you are off to a "positively" beautiful start!

best regards,

Dear Erin,

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts.
The words you said to me almost made shed a tear, I thank you so much for your support and encouragements!

What pulled me to pulse wire is the unedited exchange of information! the environment is free, friendly and it gives me a sense of hope and a feeling of responsibility and acceptance.

I enjoy writing about lifes' situations as they occur, this mostly includes the way I have journeyed through my life to this point, i also like writing about what other people encounter. I am not restricted to my opinion alone.
In my culture, it is still abit strange to support a woman who is at a higher level of education than the male counterpart/husband. though the trend is slowly ending as the government is supporting girl child education, the attitudes against that are still present. we can only measure the numbers of girls going back to school, yet who has taken the time to measure the attitude!- I don't know.
I would like to think I can compete in the work sector as well as can a man. Most women even after they complete the high school education are bound to become full dependant housewives. I also would like to think we can change the world into a friendly environment for women.

God bless you Erin.
