Shine

My word for 2019 is "shine" thanks to World Pulse!

My power word and theme for 2019 is "shine!" Why is this relevant to the impact World Pulse has made in my life? Because "shine" and World Pulse are intrinsically linked together. I am able to shine my light brighter now than ever before, thanks to the massive influence and impact World Pulse has made in my life... from deciding to make that very first inquiry about volunteering for World Pulse, to being "signed up" as an Encourager (synchronicity at its best here:-), to reading and connecting on the very first post that I read, and ultimately deciding it didn't matter if I felt way out of my comfort zone commenting on a post. What mattered to me was knowing that I had made a difference in that woman's life that day, by listening to her, hearing her, supporting her, and holding that sister closely in my heart.

You see, I haven't always been heard, acknowledged, appreciated, encouraged, or supported... far from it! I know first hand what it feels like to not have these precious gifts; and I know, and feel, with every post that I read and comment on, that I have made a difference. I have made a difference in my life because I feel good for taking time to listen to, support, encourage, and acknowledge my sister, and in turn, my fervent wish is that she can feel this love, so she doesn't feel like her life, her work, her dream, and her voice, doesn't matter or isn't heard.

To me World Pulse is a safe harbor... a communal sisterhood where I can "shine" my own, unique light that sometimes beacons to other sisters who are also searching for a safe harbor to return to, time and time again... whether they've recently weathered a storm (or two), they need love and/or support, or they just want to be acknowledged and heard.

This is the real power of World Pulse... the safe harbor for all women worldwide. We are safe; we are at home; we are all one at World Pulse. I hope it will always be this way, and that more women join our safe harbor and are able to experience the love, support, and magic that happens every single day in our community... and so it is!

I remember, I wrote you a message where I told you we have a lot of things in common.
and in my little experience I understood one thing: most of the people who do not recognize our work are those who have spoiled their lives and who think that it is impossible to come back like us. that's why they are just there to constrain us.
you know what jansen! I learned to turn contrasts into opportunities. aknowledge them in my eria, pushes me to become better than yesterday because I know that these people are just there to make me fall and I especially know that I do not have right to the error.

I am not strong in vocabulary, I beg you to take a look in your dictionary, and look at these words:
-model,
-leader,
-motivator,
-mentor,
-heaven sent gift.
-Savior
all these words describe you. The life of the many women of the world has found a meaning and that thanks to you dear jansen!

world pulse is beyond a website, it's a family.
if the others do not recognize it, I recognize your fiery spirit for the change of the life of the woman of the wide world.
I chose to support your work as I can.
March 16th, I organize a workshop where I will teach the women internet WORLD PULSE website.
I believe that this little act of recognition will get you right to the heart.

THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THE PARADISE ON EARTH, COURAGE!
