Seize Be Endure

A  L  O  H  A   from  Honolulu!
" Seize the moments
 of happiness, love 
and be loved!
 That is the only reality 
in the world,
 all else is folly. "
                          Tolstoy







" What it means to be authentic:

- to be more concerned with truth than opinions

- to be sincere and not pretend

- to be free from hypocrisy: "walk your talk"

- to know who you are and to be that person

- to not fear others seeing your vulnerabilities

- being confident to walk away from

 situations where you can't be yourself

- being awake to your own feelings

- being free from others' opinions of you

- accepting and loving yourself "

                                    Sue Fitzmaurice




“The beauty of a woman. . .
 true beauty in a Woman
 is reflected in her soul.
 It is the caring that 
she lovingly gives, 
the passion that she knows. 
And the beauty 
of a woman, 
with passing years
 only grows!” 
                Audrey Hepburn

Seems we live in a world where truth is becoming of less concern to far too many
