What’s going to happen if you start intentionally and deliberately appreciating who you are?

"There is nothing, and I do mean nothing that we cannot accomplish by appreciating who we are, being grateful for our infinite capacity and living into our Greatness."

Kim George,
Author of "Coaching into Greatness"

I get updates from the woman posted below...and even though sometimes I think it's corny...I never read what she writes without feeling empowered...

"You Are More Than Enough"‎
From: Nancy Tierney (

"I am more than enough"-
LOL...yep! Bust, Butt, and Abs are all more than enough!
But I know she wasn't talking about that.

I'm headed out this friday to visit friends in the deep south.
Friends I've met only once, or over the blog and phone,
and a few I've only read.

"Mayden" is a persona, based on Cora...but Cora is the real deal.
"Cora" has been known to yell at men in restaurants-
(and they read this blog- and they know I think the world of them...yes you, Mr. Cross and Mr. Wilson!).
I am a politically opinionated in person- mostly because I can't be quiet in person and BLURT out what I really think.
I flirt with everyone, regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation.
I can talk your head off.
I have scared people away.
I laugh- A LOT.
My brother in law tries to avoid me (not saying which one, I have at least 3)
But kids love me.
And so do dogs.

And I love deeply in return.
Once you're in my system...good luck getting out. my blog friends in the South- get ready! And if you want an honest "heads up"- ask Kate, or X-Dell to give you one. They've been there, done that, and I should make them T-shirts for the experience! LOL

Hugs everyone! Hope to see some of you this weekend!
If you want info about joining us- send me an email at: and I'll give you the scoop-

Or if you can acesss I-95 and want to have lunch/coffee- on Friday
(or on my return trip June 2nd)- send a note about that too.
I'll let you know if I can work that out :)
Have a great week- YOU are wonderful! Believe it!
