    I love this. You know I believe a woman can do anything. Anything. A man? Well, although their attributes are many, that is to be determined. I'm kidding, a little bit. The hardest part of doing anything for me is starting. Start!

    You are a strong women Ali. I've seen it. Not sure what's going on, I hope all is well. I love this quote....

    The most authentic thing about us
    Is our capacity to create, to overcome,
    To endure, to transform, to love,
    And to be greater than our suffering. Ben Okri

    Beautiful message. An inspiring way to start the week.

    By the way, I think the author's last name is Radmacher, with an a not an o.

    What a wonderful quote. I am sharing this with a woman with whom I work. She has a son with autism and she collects quotes. She will love this. I am going to hang it up in my classroom for my students to see, but mainly for me:)

    Wonderful words for a day when I started over about 4 times and each time was not able to overcome some family situations. But know what? There will be tomorrow to try again.

    I'm a fan of Mary Anne's, expecially the quote:
    “Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.”

    I wanted to mention that Mary Anne's last name is spelled Radmacher; the second letter is an a, not an o.

    [...] loved this quote on Ali Edwards’s blog last week. At first glance it does appear to be too difficult. I know many people endure far worse. [...]
