Woman to Woman

Hey ladies of Blogsville,
Someone shared this piece with me and after reading it, I just thought to myself..."why not share this on your blog for your readers to also enjoy? This could lift someone's spirit up, could put a smile on someone's face, and could restore the confidence level back in someone's life, especially in this season when there are a lot of whys and what ifs... The writer is anonymous, and I have also added a few words for greater blessings (winks). Enjoy:
In life, "Someone will always be prettier. Someone will always be smarter. Someone's house will be bigger. Someone will drive a better car. Someone will earn more. Someone will travel more. It doesn't mean they are better, they are just living there lives while you are busy trampling on what you are good, pretty, smarter and bigger in, wishing you had someone else's life.
Just let it go. Take care of yourself. Love yourself and be courageous in your circumstances, understanding that God always has His reasons, which will always be clear to us in the sweet by and by. The prettiest, slimmest woman in the world may have sadness in her heart. The most highly favored woman in your office may not be able to have children. So why do you think that being like them is the answer you need?
That married friend of yours might not be happy in her marriage. The richest woman you know may have the car, the house, and the clothes - but might be very lonely. So, love yourself. Love who you are right now! In this life, there  are no perfect situations, but we always trust God to help us thrive through the imperfections around us.
Tell yourself "I am too blessed to be stressed." Be well. Be happy. Be blessed. Pass this on to encourage another woman because, "To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world". 
By the way, thanks for all the wonderful comments, prayers and wishes to to my sunshine.  He really had fun and won't forget the celebrations in a hurry. Toin and Honeydame, make una no fight o! Make una just hurry up bring my DIL fast-fast. Time no dey o! The guy is in HOOOOOOT demand keke. Na first come first serve o! lol
Have a great week and stay out of trouble.
Peace... I'm out!


  1. Hi Priscy,
    lovely post, I love the bit about being 'too blessed to be stressed' and "To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world".

  2. Let's just be happy and contented with who we are and what we have.

    1. I couldn't agree more...

      I'd read this thingy somewhere sha.. xx

      thanks for sharing..

  3. Oh yes o... I actually have a "too blessed to be stressed" photo as my background... really really, one can not afford to be stressed about trivial things

  4. Thanks for posting, life is not fair but we got to keep it moving and living

  5. Thanks Priscy, another woman's life cannot be the best for me. Whatever God has given me, is what I truly need.

  6. so so true... thanks for sharing!

  7. I try to tell myself this as often as i can. Thanks for sharing.

  8. This message is not only for women but for all.. Good word. Bless you Priscy.

  9. *jumping up and down* declaring I am too blessed tobe stressed. Thank God for making me , me. I don't wanna be anyone else.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece

  10. This is a very very nice and,no doubt,helpful piece.I know i'm not a woman,but the content applies also to men.We really should appreciate the lives we live and the things that happen around us,rather than wish to have someone else's life.

  11. Deinitely too blessed to be stressed.
    Thanks for sharing Priscy :)

  12. Thanks for sharing what I already go by as a philosophy. Infact, you've just inspired me to do a blog entry about it based on my own experiences.

  13. Hi, Great post. I found you through the blog hop. Now following you.Please stop by and say hi when you get a chance.
    Be sure and check out my new Blog Hop that we just started, It's Weekly Goals Link Up. It's a great way to stay on track. Have a great day. :) Here's the link in case you want to check it out. Thanks again

  14. Thank you for posting this Priscy!! I missed your sunshine's birthday! Chai. Please give him kisses from aunty Tizzle.

    p.s- I may be the one to bring the DIL *smile*

  15. Woman to Woman ke? This lifted my spirit too nah. It really did lifted my spirit. Thank you for sharing this.

  16. hi Priscy, hope you are doing great? Love to you and Gabby. Have a great week!

  17. I love 'love yourself and be courageous in your circumstances.'

    I dont know who remembers that old skool song 'everybody wants to be somebody else.' Joyce Meyer also tweeted once 'the grass may be greener on the other side, but you also have to mow the lawn!' I found it such an eye-opener.
    Thaks for sharing...:-)

  18. Great philosophy to abide by. The secret to happiness is just CONTENTMENT because someone else will always do better and be better than you are. We are not in competition with anyone, but competing with our God-given goals. Comparing ourselves with others is a most unwise move.

    Nice share girl, God bless you.

  19. Hi Priscy, how are you and Gabby?

  20. to one person you might be the world... lovely post

  21. Trust you are doing good.

    Take care
