The quality of your life is a choice.
The quality of your relationships is a choice.
Suffering is optional.
Roberta Tenorio-Dominiak faced many health challenges over the course of her life and you would've never guessed it based on her wide smile, bright eyes, warm heart, and kind spirit.
I met Roberta about 3 years ago and hosted multiple Arbonne parties for these 4 women. The each pamper session was filled with laughs, joy, light-heartedness, caring, and compassion. They talked to each other like sisters. They loved each other's families as their own.
So beautifully stated in Stella Waszak's post, you can't 'get lucky' for 40 years.
You choose your friendships.
You choose your priorities.
You choose to make them work.
You choose your priorities based on your heart's desires, not your current circumstance.
These women chose each other time and time again and their bond was evident if you were ever in their presence. Roberta chose to live instead of suffer any process of dying.
She inspired me with the way she carried herself as unbothered even when her pain was evident. Her presence was known and loved. I am honored to have had the chance to be in her presence and serve these women.
Stella's post speaks to my heart so strongly because YOU are 100% responsible for the quality of your relationships. Not 50%, or 75%, or even 99%!....100%. When you give fully, PURELY, and unconditionally, it will be met with the same.
As humans, we subconsciously mangle this universal law with our outcome driven expectations. When you give strictly from love, you cannot manage to manipulate it.
Give of your love as if you will NEVER run out.
Give as if you have an ocean's supply and you will be swept up by the tidal waves that come back your way.
Rest well, Roberta.
You left us with your love.
I invite you to share your love with these women and her AMZAING daughter Hannah Rose Dominiak as they honor their friend and mother ❤
