War & Peace

War is the ugly step-sister. She has no happy end.
Her dress is drenched in the blood of the innocent, the blood of the the wrong and the blood of the right.
War makes no distinction. Of this she is proud. Because she treats all equally.
So what if their fate is tragic?

Peace is her half-sister.
She is so elegant and so sublime in pure white.
Trust and love fill the hearts of those who stand alongside her.
She inspires and they admire. For her beauty charms, allures.

But War is jealous.
Her resentment overwhelms her.
She does the only thing she knows. Can she be blamed?
War stains the dress Peace wears with the blood she coldly drinks. read more

It’s getting trickier.

We women want it all. We want to do everything we do perfectly. It’s not only about being flawless – not making mistakes – we want to excel and reach our goal faster than anyone else and in our own eyes our stride does matter. We want to look like an Arabian stallion as we cross the finish line. If we look like a donkey we think it won’t matter.

I dropped a couple of balls this week. I’m living with myself and I’m doing my absolute best not to get discouraged. The hard part is picking up the balls I dropped while keeping the ones I’m still juggling in the air. read more

I’ve done a bit of research. Just a bit and I’m not going to make this too tedious. I just want to fill you in on what the Liebster is.

The Liebster Award is a blog award granted to determined and promising bloggers with fewer than 200 followers and who somebody feels deserves recognition and support to keep their blogging spirit on fire. read more
