Just sharing....

So once again I have been blog surfing.....catching up on posts by some of my favourite bloggers. Erica over at directed me towards this little gem - I loved rule number one, so thought I would share:

"In her new column for O, author, political commentator, and veteran campaign strategist Donna Brazile offers her rules to live by.

1. Be the buffalo.
Wilma Mankiller, the first female principal chief of the Cherokee nation, once told me how the cow runs away from the storm while the buffalo charges directly toward it—and gets through it quicker. Whenever I'm confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment. I become the buffalo."

I wish I had of known this many, many years ago! It would have more than likely helped me to get through so many trials and tribulations.....oh well, I got through them regardless! I shall now endeavour to be "The Buffalo" when faced with challenges - I'm pretty sure that as a mother of four kids, I have many more challenges to come!

My quote for the day? Well, I came across this one today and it jumped out at me! "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."— Eleanor Roosevelt. So I have paid this little quote forward, to a friend's teenage daughter. Typical teenage girl issues, which never have a typical solution. I just want my kids to stay my "babies" forever.....
