My friend Jackie sent me this, it describes how I feel about the world right now on and off social media...

In the Sufi tradition it is suggested that our thoughts should pass through three gates. At the first gate, we ask of our thought, “Is it true?” If so, we let the thought pass through to the second gate, where we ask, “Is it necessary or useful?” If this also is so, we let the thought continue on its way to the third gate, where we ask, “Is this thought rooted in love and kindness?” Judgmental thoughts, which are neither true, helpful, nor kind, falter at the gates.

‪#RantOfTheDay Reach out both sides! Or nothing will get done. My way or the highway never helps anyone! #WhyIDeletePoliticalSocialMedia‬
Probably wouldn't be influenced by anything I read on social media anyway! We must communicate today for any hope of hearing each other.... too many absolutes and chest puffing, name calling and hysteria by all....compromise is our only hope, rant of the day OVER.... not that many paid attention or agreed anyway! And that's ok . I love ❤️ you! And I wish you all the best but I refuse to get depressed or sick over this!
Thank you!

Sent to me by a friend... so true!

I want to remind you that success in life is based on hard slogging. There will be periods when discouragement is great and upsetting, and the antidote for this is calmness and fortitude and a modest yet firm belief in your competence. Be sure that your priorities are in order so that you can proceed in a logical manner, and be ever mindful that nothing will take the place of persistence.
~Walter Annenberg, Publisher and philanthropist (1908 - 2002 )

I applaud all Olympians...you are a joy to watch, unfortunately we are forced to view these fine achievement through media both mainstream and social who often filter their agenda through your achievements...this happens in all activities including pageants, fan pages, we are a TMZ , we all have a voice and we have a responsibility to use these public commentary opportunities respectfully... Sometimes I think of leaving FB/twitter because of this but I will not allow those I've net never met to steal my joy... you shouldn't either... you are all heroes!!

So honored to be asked to write this "guest blog" for Pageantology.com  Thanks Shandi Finnessey & Susie Leslie for posting it so beautifully...as well your continued friendship & support http://www.pageantology.com/blog/2013/7/2/what-is-a-pageant-girl-by-john-h-baker


Hope you enjoy it!
