Women Take Root! I subscribe to several good email groups, and this post today from "Women Take Root and Write" was exactly what I needed to read today. My focus has been off lately. Check this site out, you gals out there. You guys too. A good life is not reserved for either sex. I've quoted the article in part.


January 28, 2009Your Focus Becomes Your Reality"Have you done a recent reality check on the current condition of your life? Are you blessed and happy, or depressed, hopeless, and in despair? What you choose to focus on will become your reality...If you are not happy with your current reality, it is time to refocus. The definition of "focus" is: a central point, as of attraction, attention; the core, the heart. Life throws choices at you every day. Make no mistake, whatever choices you make are seeds that will shape your future...Consider Viktor Frankl, a Holocaust survivor. We cannot imagine what he had to endure, but he has lived to tell how he survived the inhumane treatment in concentration camps. His focus and his attitude allowed him to endure the darkest moments of his life. Mr. Frankl quotes, 'The last of human freedoms - the ability to choose one's attitude in a given set of circumstances.'


I love the Frankl quote. I wish I'd used this earlier today when someone asked me my favorite quotation. This is powerful.

Women Take Root. A good place to hang out. If you love writing, Women Take Root and Write is even better
