“NineFrogs Weekly Roundup!” (5.23.2020)

To clarify, Patricia Bokowski, the primary roles of LOVE are not to heal, fix, or mend. Not to soothe, cure, or ease. Not even to refresh, rejuvenate, or restore. Hardly.
The primary roles of LOVE, Patricia Bokowski, are to “Yahoo!” “Yeehaa!” and “Whoohooo!” 
Get your love on,   The Universe / NineFrogs Weekly Roundup!


You were born to love, Patricia Bokowski, no matter the cost, no matter what someone else said, and no matter how the past once played out.

NineFrogs Weekly Roundup!

“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs

Have you had this happen to you?

Your Iphone sends you a message that your storage is full.

And now.

You need to delete some of your precious pictures.


So, I decided to take the time and actually go through my phone and delete some pictures!

Which I hate.

Because I love all my pictures <3


In the process.

I came across some great quotes.

Some quite old ones, that I had saved.

So, I thought!

I’ll make a blog out of them!

Some of them are actually very timely.

Am I the only one feeling this way these days?

Something about living through #quarantine2020 will do that to a person!

As each day goes by, I feel more empowered.

I’m not quite sure why, but I’m going with it!

Let’s be honest.

This is our first time we are doing this.

And trying to make the best of it as well.

But truly.

I am feeling more empowered every day.


Tai Vicari made this for me about six years ago or so.

I’m so happy I found it again.

I forgot all about it!

And it’s a great reminder.

That even in a #pandemic.

You still need to take look your best AND to take care of yourself.

Self-care is more important than ever!

And yes.

I know there are those people who will say.

Patti, it’s a pandemic. what difference does it make what we wear.

Answer: It makes all the difference!

As for me, I need to be dressed for success to do my BEST work πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

That’s right.

Even in the middle of a #pandemic.

Even during #quarantine.

You still need to live your life.

As best as you can!

And never give up!

“When life brings BIG winds of change that almost blow you over, close your eyes, hold on tight AND BELIEVE!” / Lisa Lieberman-Wang


Most people aren’t worth catching.

There’s a lot of people lying out there.

Be careful of people who promise you the moon.

Anybody who promises things that are too good to be true;



Opportunities, that seem too good to be true!

etc. – !

These days.

I don’t trust ANYBODY unless I personally know them!

MORAL: Don’t believe everything you see on the internet!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

And remember!

Unless you actually know the person.

You don’t know WHO the other person actually is.

They can say they are anybody.

It doesn’t mean they are them.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

My philosophy has always been don’t be afraid to brake the rules (not the law).

Whether it refers to love, friends, work, fashion, philosophy, music, etc.

Do what makes you happy (as long as you don’t hurt anyone).

Be with the people that make you happy.

LOVE who ever you want.

NOT who you are supposed to love.

This is YOUR life.

Make it spectacular πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

In these trying times, you need to get creative!


How can I pivot my business during these trying times?

What can you do in your business that’s a little out-of-the-box creative?

Maybe you can open a Pinterest account if you don’t have one already?

Do you have an Instagram account?

Is your business on Google?

How are your posts doing on social media?

Are people liking and commenting?

If not, you might want to rethink your posts!

Are you a blogger in the making?

If not currently, now is the time to startπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

As for me, I opened my YouTube in the beginning of the year.

And recently, open up an account on TikTok.

That’s what I’m saying.http://www.ninefrogs.com

And don’t say you can’t do it.

You can do anything you set your mind too!

Here’s something I’ve been working on during the #pandemic.

My goal is to reach 10M monthly viewers by the end of October 2020.

And I’m almost there.

Why is this important you might ask?

Because it pushes the traffic to my website!

And that’s how I make money on my blogsπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

This is one of my favorite quotes!

And I’ve used this many times in my blogs.

Because it is a great reminder.

Stop being afraid of everything.

And instead.

Take BACK your power that you gave away somewhere along the way.

Whenever I hear people telling me how they feel sad or lonely.

I know this person gave up their power along the way.


And nothing will scare you ever again.

Just like Frank says:

The BIG lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything!

Here’s a little something I wanted to share with you today!

It’s called “The Story of the Chinese Bamboo Tree” by Benny Hsu πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

When you start to make  positive changes in your life, it is not easy.

You want results right away.

When you don’t, you easily want to give up. 

I like the story of the Chinese bamboo tree:

You take a little seed.

Plant it.

Water it.

And fertilize it for a whole year.

And guess what?

Nothing happens. 

The second year,

You water it.

Fertilize it.

And nothing happens. 

The third year, you water it, and fertilize it, and still nothing happens.

How discouraging this becomes! πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

The fifth year you continue to water.

And fertilize the seed and then—take note.

Sometime during the fifth year.

The Chinese bamboo tree sprouts and grows NINETY FEET IN SIX WEEKS! 

Life is much akin to the growing process of the Chinese bamboo tree. 

It is often discouraging.

We seemingly do things right, and nothing happens.

But for those who do things right and are not discouraged.

Things will happen. πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

It might take years.

But if you are persistent enough.

You might have “overnight success” that others will see.

But in your heart.

You know the results came from doing the right things over a long period of time. 

The situation you are in right now is the result of the seeds that you planted 5 years ago.

Are you getting the results you want?

If not, begin today to sow the seeds of what you want 5 years from now. 

Remember, if you keep doing what you’ve always done,.

You’ll get the results you’ve always gotten.

Get busy living!

Either get busy living, or get busy dying.

Choose wiselyπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ



DON’T QUITπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

I know it’s hard.

I know you’re trying really hard.

I know it seems like nothing is happening.


You’re come this far.

Don’t quit now.

Rest if you must.

Just don’t quitπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ


Truth time!

What’s that thing you keep telling yourself that ‘one day’ you’re going to do πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Almost everyone has one.

Only they give a hundred reasons why they can’t.

Here’s my advice.

Take the LEAP!
