REMEMBER THIS….

“Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering”.~~Don Miguel Ruiz

Ms. T is back with more to share.

I have spent a month so far on my weight loss journey or rather my back to health journey.  Really I think that for me, I have to look at it as a health journey.  There remains that residual frustration when I view it as weight loss only.  I feel like I am trying to comport with the societal baloney about women needing to be a certain size and shape.  I then feel compelled to rebel which is odd b/c I am not a rebel.

Heroines that Inspire

Posted on 18. May, 2011 in Uncategorized, You Go Girl

We all have idols and heroes.  There is Condoleezza Rice, Jillian Michaels, Jackie Warner, Kelly Ripa and Justice Ginsberg.  But who do you have “locally” or in your group of peers that really stand out and make you think, I have my own heroine right here.

We have a RockIt Mom, let’s call her “Tinks”. “Tinks” works more than full-time, is married and has 3 young children under the age of 6.  She works so hard at her job, her marriage and  being a mom that is rarely any Tinks time.  Her weekends are packed with sports, dance, swim, birthday parties, helping friends, Daisy leader, fundraising for her favorite charity, grocery shopping, cleaners, and and and… (more…)

Soul Surfer – Bethany Hamiliton

Posted on 27. Mar, 2011 in You Go Girl

Recently, I found a book “Ask Bethany. FAQs: Surfing, Faith & Friends” by Bethany Hamilton with Doris Rikkers. 

You may be saying, “Who is Bethany Hamilton, sounds familiar?”  Bethany is the strong, confident and amazing young woman who was attacked by a tiger shark who took her left arm, while she was out surfing in her home of Kauai when she was 13 years old. The story alone shows how strong, focused and powerful she really is.

If you have a young daughter, this is a fabulous book to read TOGETHER.  My 8 years old, who loves to surf, swim and anything water, is amazed at how strong she is and how she is so knowledgeable about so much at a young age. There is a chapter about boys, dating, kissing and all the emotions that go with that.  Bethany has a great response to why she doesn’t have a boyfriend, “A boyfriend is a dangerous thing and could change the course of your life overnight.”  This is from a 16 years old girl.  She needs to mentor those girls on Teen Mom!  Her analogy why you don’t kiss or have a physical relationship with a boy is so on point! I won’t spoil it for you, so you can read the whole chapter. 

Bethany is truly a positive and brillant role model for young ladies.  You Go Girl!

RockIt Role Model Lindsey Vonn

We all want to raise confident kids.  Those of us that have daughters are especially motivated to give them the confidence that they can do anything they set their mind to.  By now most of you know about Lindseys gold medal in the womens downhill at the Vancouver Olympics.   Watch the NY Times Magazine video to learn a little more about why Lindsey is a great role model for my daughter.

Danica Rocks with the Boys at Daytona

Posted on 07. Feb, 2010 in You Go Girl

In her first stock car race Danica Patrick did herself proud, trading paint with motocross hero turned stock car racer Ricky Carmichael, edging  him out for a 6th place finish. 
Danica enjoyed mixing it up with the boys. “That was really fun,” she said after the race. “I was going side by side with people. The GoDaddy car doesn’t look very pretty, but it was fun.”
