It’s been so long, Patricia Bokowski, I’m quite sure you’ve forgotten our secret handshake, haven’t you?
How about our code for saying, “I love you”?
Then I doubt you’ll recall my solemn promise to let you know once you began approaching exactly the right time and exactly the right place, with enough life lessons under your belt to finally stop struggling, start soaring, and living the life of your wildest dreams?
Well, if not, the following might not make much sense:
“You’re getting hot! Really HOT!! Ouch, so hot! DOUBLE-HOT! Patricia Bokowski, NOW-W-W-W-W-W-W!”
I $l%o^v1e you, The Universe / Devil or Angel <3

Here’s a little something I’ve been thinking about.
Seems there’s a lot of stressed out people out there.
Being that tomorrow is Thanksgiving!
I’m sharing some short, sweet, inspirational words.
Words of encouragement.
To make you think.
Words to assure you.
You got this!
It’s all going to be okay!
“Did you know?
Grapes have to be trampled to make wine?
Olives are crushed to make oil?
Diamonds are formed under pressure?
Seeds grow in the dark.
When you feel trampled, crushed, under pressure or in the dark.
That you are in a power moment of transformation.
TRUST THE PROCESS.”
Raymond Polanco (my FaceBook friend).
“I tried being normal once. It was the worst five minutes of my life.” – Kermit the Frog
What if it really is bringing you where you need to be?
What if it’s not a punishment?
The Universe is working behind the scenes to bring you where you want to be?👈👈👈
It just doesn’t look like that right now?
What if you stopped looking at everything that is happening to you.
As a blessing.
And not a curse!
“Live your life from a place of power.
Remind yourself daily, regardless of what you’re facing moment to moment.
That you are stronger than anything you are going through, facing, or have to handle.
Refuse to operate at the level of the problems or challenges that you’re facing.
Project yourself in the future.
And see yourself victorious as a person who has resolved, completed and achieved your goals.
Keep you head up and your spirit strong.
And continue to develop an achievement driven mindset.👈👈👈
Tell yourself that you’re going to operate at the top of your game.
Apply your best thinking to the issues before you.
And bulldoze your way to the top!👈👈👈
You have something special.
You have GREATNESS within you!”
“Do what honors and respects you. Don’t participate in activities that bring you down. Don’t allow toxic people in your life. Love everyone, but be discerning on who you allow into your life.” – In my head I am always right and you are always wrong
“Life has a way of shaking you to the core. And then…when you think it is the worst possible scenario, a rainbow appears on the other side with miraculous occurrences that you could have never dreamed up yourself. And that is the beauty of not knowing what is around the corner in this adventure we call life!” – Kermit the Frog
The Lotus Flower
The lotus flower is a beautiful flower that can be found all over the world.
But the start of this flower’s life is not as beautiful as one would think.
It is unlike many other flowers.
When the lotus first begins to sprout, it is under water.
Making it’s home in lakes and ponds in areas where the water remains fairly still on the surface.
But underneath the surface, the lotus is surrounded by mud and yuck.
Dead fish and bugs.
Despite it all.
The lotus continues to grow strong.
Through the mud.
Until one day.
It sprouts out of the water.
Washed over and cleansed by the very dirty water where she grew out of.
Freeing herself from the harsh conditions of the muddy pond.
It is then that the lotus flower slowly opens each beautiful petal to the sun.
As the outer lotus flower is cleaned off.
The inner lotus has never seen a drop of mud or dirty water.
It is pure, and bright, and beautiful.
We can look at out lives like the lotus flower.
Struggling to get out of the muck.
And come out a beautiful flower standing strong!
“I loved her.
Not for the way she danced with my Angels.
But for the way the sound of her name could silence my demons.”
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style!” – Maya Angelou
“We meet many matches in our lives, but there is always one that burns brighter and hotter than the rest. Our only hope is that they will be the one burning beside us in the end.” j. iron word
