It has been an interesting few months here at Diva Central and slowly but surely, I am finding my feet. It helps to have an amazing (truly amazing) team behind me, carrying me at times, onwards and upwards. I am thrilled to be writing my first blog in ever such a long time and cannot wait to connect with you all on a regular basis!
During the past year or so, I have become curious, perhaps fascinated by motivation sayings and images (or visual memes as I believe they are called these days) and like many of us, my Facebook account is, at times inundated with such memes. Some are funny (I confess that I absolutely adore Grumpy Cat), some are not to my taste (and so I make great use of the “hide” button), others appeal to my “Inner Diva” and then there are the ones that cause me to stop, and think or cause me to literally catch my breath in surprise as the words or image just seem to sum up me thoughts and feeling at that particular moment.
Today, I was blessed to speak with a young lady whom I have never met, but is getting married in a few weeks. Such a special time in her life deserves treats and celebrations to help create the special memories she will hold dear for the rest of her life. Of course, I do not know her story and it is not for me to know, but I was stung to hear the she will have no attendants, hens night or other pre-wedding celebrations and it brought tears to my eyes.
We all have our hurts, and our fears, weaknesses and strengths; I guess that some days it is just easier to focus on the things that bring us down, even though we strive each day to stand tall, as magnificent and beautiful women and perfectly imperfect in every way. I am blessed to have some truly, TRULY amazing friends and I am also blessed that my beloved Style and Substance is back and so these visual memes that I share with you are from my heart, and offered with love.
