Welcome to The Blogging A-Z Challenge April 2012! Some of the most popular posts here at The Shellshank Redemption are the Motivational Mondays. So, after consulting the tortoises, we decided to make April our Motivational Month! Please join us for this (almost!) daily dose of alphabetical inspiration. We hope you enjoy it!
* EVERY TIME A WOMAN PASSES A MIRROR AND CRITICIZES HERSELF, THERE’S A GIRL WATCHING. (Gloria Steinem) *
What if every time a woman passes a mirror…she smiles at herself? She cheers for the width of that smile, the light in her eyes? She accepts the wrinkles and dark circles? She loves the sound of her voice, the joy in her laugh?
What if…she gives herself a round of applause? She congratulates herself on a job - inside the home, outside the home, whatever it is - well done? She encourages herself to try something new, take a chance, challenge herself in some way? What if she does a victory fist pump or a few steps of a happy dance…just because she is who she is?
What if…we do that now, we start that today? Maybe, just maybe, the next time our nieces and daughters and granddaughters pass a mirror, they’ll see themselves…and smile.
