Sickle cell disease occurs when hemoglobin, a protein carried by the body’s red blood cells that attaches to oxygen in the lungs and transports it to all parts of the body, is abnormal, causing the red blood cells to take on a rigid “C” or sickle, shape.
National Women’s History Month was born of suffrage in March of 1857, when women from New York City factories staged a protest over working conditions. International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, but it was not until 1981 that Congress established National Women’s History Week. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the President has issued a proclamation.
The belief that we can rely on shortcuts to happiness, joy, rapture, comfort, and ecstasy, rather than be entitled to these feelings by the exercise of personal strengths and virtues, leads to legions of people who, in the middle of great wealth, are starving spiritually. ~Martin Seligman
Until you are ready and willing to make a change in your life, the possibility of change will continue to elude you. As the saying goes…”when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
The same is true for change in all of our lives.
Subconsciously we hang onto all of our past mistakes, bad habits and self-defeating beliefs.
Let go and embrace change. The end result, the feeling of freedom that follows is more than worth the journey.
