"It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it."
~ Lena Horne 89 years Diva & still glowing!
Another truly exquisite woman (inside and out).
I do understand your point, Diva Nut, that these women are older and very radiantly beautiful and wise. They did have an early jump on things though by having a clear picture of who they are, and what they have and they had families and mates and creative careers--not easy careers but work they loved and were respected for. They are inspirational for me nonetheless. I'm just having a hard time coming to terms with the really, really bad choices I made about my life out of ignorance, the total ignorance I had about my potential, my upbringing which did not prepare me for anything but to be a worker bee for the system, etc., and the resulting anger, bitterness, etc. I'm praying for healing love, forgiveness moving beyond all this, etc. Some days it seems I am making progress and some days it doesn't. I do thank you for being there though. Liaya
This is shared with loving intent to support you through this growth that you are experiencing right now.
There are no mistakes. None.
All those things you claim are bad choices are ones that others who follow up behind you are doing as well, and as you move through them to your calling (whatever that may be), you will be the inspiration...the healer...the one they look up to because if you could get through all that and be the Uncovered Gold Diva, they too can claim their Diva-ness.
I was asked the other day if I could change anything, what would I change? I said NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. I wouldn't change the abuse. I wouldn't change the divorce. I wouldn't change the financial struggles. I wouldn't change a single freakin' thing.
Each and every one of those decisions, experiences, triumphs and failures (if they can really be called that) have made me the Diva Wombn I am today.
I am holding a vision that your Gold radiates across the earth healing all who you touch.
