Flying higher

I completed my first triathlon Sunday, June 27 two days after my 49th birthday. Yippee for me. Yippee for all of the women who competed, especially my sister. I will admit that I was wondering if she would actually finish in the midst of challenges that I doubt she could have ever imagined, but she did it. She is an Iron Girl just like the rest of us. We all wear the same medal.

It was so amazing to see 1,400 women of all shapes, sizes and colors competing. It was the ultimate 'women power' event. There was so much encouragement that I felt that I was swimming, biking, and running with sistergirlfriends instead of fierce competitors. I could only admire the skills sets that the advanced athletes possessed. I was filled with pride as I applauded each women crossing the finish line and more importantly proud of myself. There were moments (during the swim) when I thought I should give up and sit on the sidelines, but I did not.

I am flying much higher now because I was a part of the Iron Girl. I am part of an exclusive group of strong, beautiful, and powerful spirits who dared to step out of the comfort zones if only for a few hours to soar in flocks together. There is such strength in numbers.

Be proud of yourself today. Dare to step out of your comfort zone if only for a few moments. Yes, it will be daunting and maybe even scary, but trust your faith and God will be right there.

This quote was never truer than on Sunday for me, but it applies to every day living:

You were born with the strength you need to get through this day.

… Unbelievable , but I just found software which can do all hard work promoting your website on complete autopilot - building backlinks and getting your website on top of Google and other search engines 1st pages, so your site finally can get laser targeted qualified traffic, and so you can get lot more visitors for your website.

YEP, that’s right, there’s this little known website which shows you how to get to the top 10 of Google and other search engines guaranteed.

I used it and in just 7 days… got floods of traffic to my site...

…Well check out the incredible results for yourself -

I’m not trying to be rude here, but I believe when you find something that finally works you should share it…

…so that’s what I’m doing today, sharing it with you:

Take care - your friend Jennifer

After getting more than 10000 visitors/day to my website I thought your website also need unstoppable flow of traffic...

Use this BRAND NEW software and get all the traffic for your website you will ever need ...

= = > >

In testing phase it generated 867,981 visitors and $540,340.

Then another $86,299.13 in 90 days to be exact. That's $958.88 a

And all it took was 10 minutes to set up and run.

But how does it work??

You just configure the system, click the mouse button a few
times, activate the software, copy and paste a few links and
you're done!!

Click the link BELOW as you're about to witness a software that
could be a MAJOR turning point to your success.
