I've been reading a truly inspiring book by #mayaangelou and this statement was made in the book. "Remember, he who puts you in the shit is not necessarily your ENEMY. And he who takes you out of the shit is not necessarily your FRIEND"
My takeaway is be #THANKFUL for the revelation & don't forget to #LIVEOUTLOUD whether you're in or out of the SHIT. #NoRegrets#SincerelyPatrice#SincerelyLiving
"No puedes controlar todos los eventos que te suceden, pero puedes decidir no ser reducido por ellos" Maya Angelou
Es difícil abrir los ojos cada mañana y darte cuenta quieras o no de las situaciones que suceden en nuestra amada #Venezuela y más difícil aún tratar de no dejarte arrastrar por el miedo, la queja, la rabia, la impotencia ante tanta impunidad, ante tanta desidia, ante tanta indiferencia, incluso me he sorprendido a mi misma sumergida en cada una de esas emociones. 🎈🙏🏻😇 Es difícil...lo que me levanta, me motiva y me hace decirme a mi misma todos los días "No te irás, no abandonaras tus metas, tus sueños, lo que quieres lograr y lograrlo aquí en tu país, en #Venezuela junto a la gente que amas, tu motivación, tu motor" es precisamente mi familia, mis amigos, mis compañeros, mis colegas, gente que a diario trabaja por este país, gente que a diario me motiva a ser mejor, gente que cree aún en este país.
Por más que traten de perder la Fe, de hacernos perder el interés por el progreso de este país, seguiré aquí, levantándome cada mañana y trabajando por mis metas y por este país. Escucho a la gente decir que no vale la pena salir a trabajar, porque el dinero no alcanza...señores trabajando es la única manera de que no sólo un país progrese, no. Es la única manera de que usted progrese, su familia tenga calidad de vida, es la única manera, ya sea un trabajador dependiente o un emprendedor, pero quedarse en casa no es la opción. 🎈🙏🏻💪🏻😇 Feliz y bendecido miércoles, yo me quedo disfrutando de un regalito nada más venezolano que un @chocolateselrey 🍫😇 hecho con el mejor #chocolate del mundo!!! #BuenDia#Miercoles#TuPuedes#Emprendedores#17ene#MayaAngelou#Fe#progreso#evolucion#motivacion#madrugadera#familia#chocolateelrey#chocolate#chocoadicto#cacao#cocoa#orgullovenezoelano#locutora#instagram#rrss#redes#socialmedia
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” - Maya Angelou
A copy of “Mom & me & Mom” was released at the Treasury in Petra. “The Treasury” is one of the most elaborate temples in the ancient city of Petra. Its structure was carved out of a sandstone rock face. The Treasury was built by the Arab Nabateans, coinciding with the time of the Hellenistic and Roman Empires and has Classical Greek-influenced architecture.
About the book: Mom & Me & Mom (2013) is the seventh and final book in author Maya Angelou's series of autobiographies. The book was published shortly before Mother's Day and Angelou's 85th birthday. It focuses, for the first time in her books, on Angelou's relationship with her mother, Vivian Baxter. The book explains Baxter's behavior, especially Baxter's abandonment of Angelou and Angelou's older brother when they were young children, and fills in "what are possibly the final blanks in Angelou's eventful life". The book also chronicles Angelou's reunion and reconciliation with Baxter.
The author: Maya Angelou (born Marguerite Annie Johnson; April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014) was an American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and was credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees. Angelou is best known for her series of seven autobiographies, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of 17 and brought her international recognition and acclaim. #ibelieveinbookfairies#oursharedshelf#feminism#emmawatson#mayaangelou#MomAndMeAndMom#biography#autobiographies#autobiography#drmayaangelou#bookstagram#books#reading#amreading#bookaddict#bookfairiesworldwide
“Hayatınla ilgili sevmediğin her şeyi değiştir.
Ama önüne değiştiremeyeceğin bir şey çıkarsa,
o zaman ona bakış açını değiştir.
Durumu yeni bir açıdan göreceksin
ve belki de değiştirmek için yeni bir yol bulacaksın.”
When I think of death, and of late the idea has come with alarming frequency, I seem at peace with the idea that a day will dawn when I will no longer be among those living in this valley of strange humors.
I can accept the idea of my own demise, but I am unable to accept the death of anyone else.
I find it impossible to let a friend or relative go into that country of no return.
Disbelief becomes my close companion, and anger follows in its wake.
I answer the heroic question 'Death, where is thy sting? ' with ' it is here in my heart and mind and memories.” #mayaangelou#whenithinkofdeath#fiveyearslater
"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass." —Maya Angelou
Grabbing life by the lapels looks different for everyone. For our Artisans its grabbing hold of the opportunity that comes with dignified jobs and development training. For you, it can be grabbing hold of powerful purchases and making your hard-earned money matter by helping us end poverty with every purchase. Now let's go kick poverty's ass 👊
This book has accompanied me around the world 🌎. I take Dr. Angelou with me everywhere I go. Maya’s wisdom, courage, vulnerability, faith, intelligence and poetic soul is a touchstone in my life and i come back to her time and time again! She quenches my thirst and feeds my hunger. She encourages, inspires, teaches and uplifts me when I need it most. She was here, and we (I) are better for it. #hero#mentor#teacher#icon#phenomenalwoman#mayaangelou
