Giving Quotes

Over the last decade or so 'wars' have been proclaimed, in turn, on teen pregnancy, dropping out, drugs, and most recently violence. The trouble with such campaigns, though, is that they come too late, after the targeted problem has reached epidemic proportions and taken firm root in the lives of the young. They are crisis intervention, the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such 'wars,' what we need is to follow the logic of prevention, offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates

Daniel Goldman

There has never been a time in history when simply being pregnant and giving birth has seemed so complicated. This is because there has never been a time in history when being a woman has seemed so complicated. Whatever gains we imagine we have made in work, in relationships and in the wider culture, the struggle to find a positive definition of what it is to be a woman, particularly in regard to our reproductive lives, is as intense as ever. Nowhere is that struggle felt as keenly as in the arena of pregnancy and birth

The universal Law of Attraction states that we draw to us those people, events, and circumstances that match our inner state of being. In other words, we attract experiences that are consistent with our beliefs. If we believe that there is plenty of love in the world and we are worthy of giving and receiving that love, we will attract a different quality of relationships than someone who believes in scarcity or feels unworthy of happiness. If we believe the world is a loving and friendly place, then most of the time that will be our experience. If we believe the world is a chaotic, stressful, and fearful place, then eventually that will become our reality. So, believing and knowing that your soulmate is out there is a critical first step in the formula for manifesting him or her into your life.

Arielle Ford
