12 hours into the New Year: how many resolutions already broken, not even surviving the first day? How many lives unwavered by the promise of a new beginning? How many 2009 calendars left on bookstore shelves (the real question we don't ask: what becomes of them, these expired prints, now that their future-telling days have become a thing of the past, and their numbers no longer have any purpose; what happens then? Left behind in 2009, like a toy that the world has outgrown as we look expectantly into the unfulfilled promises of 2010? No one speaks of this.)

One click too soon can be dangerous for the health of a relationship. Pause before texting. Delay before hitting send on an email. When the heart is beating fast and reaction is at your fingertips, hit save, not send. Hard to do, easy to say. The biggest measurement of the pause factor is the pace of the heart, the flush of the face, the perplexity of the brow. Sweating? Can it wait? Many feelings have been hurt from lack of restraint of pen and tongue. So restrain. Delay and send it first to yourself and revisit it in an hour.

There is an inner beauty about a woman, who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything that she puts her mind to. There is a beauty in strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isnt thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences, who knows she can fall, pick herself up and move on. There is a beauty about a woman who acts and do the things she wants and expresses herself in every single chance she has. Girl be proud!
