Remain hopeful

Times are very hard these days. We are all trying to make it happen for ourselves. Whether our bank account is full or empty, life can be rough.

One of the hardest thing is to is to probably remain hopeful when circumstances and situations tell us otherwise.



Through the different stories published on this platform, my hope is most you have felt empowered, encouraged or at the least, inspired. If you felt that way, great! I am also aware that there are times when your spirit is down.

So, I made the decision to write you encouraging personal notes. We need hope in our world. I believe that positive stories have that ability to keep us hopeful. I also believe that we need to take care our spiritual being in order to stay hopeful. My spiritual outlet is my relationship with my Savior Jesus-Christ, which is actually my source of hope and strength. If this is true for me, I believe it will be for you too.

I don't know where you stand right now in your life. I just know that you cannot allow yourselves to give up. You still have the gift of life in you. Make the best out of it. Find your purpose and if it is needed, take it easy. But above all else, remain hopeful. I pray you will.

Five powerful African women

Forbes has just released the official list of the world's 100 most powerful women of 2013. I am not sure which criteria Forbes experts used. Based on the list, they have probably included criteria such financial or diplomatic influence. However, I was disappointed to notice the insignificant representation of African women on the list. This may be partly explained by the background of those in charge of the selection.
