If turkeys thought, they’d run away, A week before Thanksgiving Day. But turkeys can’t anticipate, And so there’s turkey on my plate.
I like the taste of turkey Any time throughout the year But it never seems to taste as good As when Thanksgiving’s here. Could be it’s all the trimmings That are cooked with it to eat- But I think it’s eating at Grandma’s house That makes it such a treat.
Today I am celebrating that 22 years ago I smoked my last cigarette. It wasn’t easy, it was darn difficult, physically and mentally. But I did it, and I am so proud I did. My health has improved immensely, I exercise and don´t get out of breath. I enjoy the horizon without the need to have a cigarette between my fingers. I don’t celebrate every year. I did it this one because I needed to remember myself that I can do and accomplish what I want to. That I have will power and strong!
Yes, we are born, aren’t we? Grow up a few months and then, 365 days later: BAM! Parents and grandparents decide to celebrate your first birthday on this earth, “a special day” they call it, a day none of us remember!
Needless to say: years go by, suddenly you are 7 and you want some presents for your birthday: mainly toys. When you are 16 things change, now you want to spend it with your friends, have a teenage party. Two or three years go by, now you are 18 or 19 and you want to celebrate your birthday with your sweetheart.
If everything goes fine in your life and you are “lucky” enough to grow older, the twenties, thirties, forties….fifties anyone?! Then what? How do you really want to celebrate your birthday?
Thank you for being who you are, hard-working women, students in science, arts, writers in journalism, poetry, philosophy, mothers, the pillar of your family, politicians. Thank you for reading what I write, what I share. As a woman, I have always fought hard for my rights to become successful, healthy, happy, for my family.
It has not been easy for me, and I am sure it has not been easy for many women with whom I have been in contact within the digital world. But we reach out, we study, we work, we are disciplined, and persevere until we conquer what we want.
We, women, are strong and deserve to speak out against violence against us, just because we have been perceived as the “weak gender”. This is a new era, and the era is ours for us to show the kind of strength needed to create a wonderful world of peace, health, and love….without violence, and without discriminating against anyone.
I am wishing my family, friends, WordPress bloggers, followers, contacts around the world, a very Happy New Year 2022, full of love, prosperity, happiness, strength, and perfect health. May all your wishes be fulfilled this year and the rest of your life!
I wrote the title of the post in capital letters because I am screaming it to everyone around the world, to whom I wish love, prosperity, wisdom, happiness, food on the table today and each day of your lives for you and your loved ones. May the glory of the universe and the goodness of the people in the world fill your hearts and your homes with health and great energy, forever and ever.
