Divine Diva Donna Webster

Happy New Year Divine Diva's,

Welcome to my new blog. Some of you may know me from my old web site Divine Diva Delights which is no longer an open site on the web. The brief history and short story is that I am inspirational author and a few years ago I started a bath and body product site called Divine Diva Delights which came to be because of my love of bath and body products.

Although the products did not do well, my passion for writing and inspiring women was brought to life on my site and the site ended up becoming a source and place for inspiration for women all over the world when I decided I wanted to interview successful well known women with some very special questions I came up with about finding purpose and passion with career choices.

I was blessed enough to have been able to interview many well known authors and other women I have admired over the years with the goal being to show every woman that we all face fears and obstacles along the way of finding our passion and purpose in life and to show women that anything really is possible no matter what your age is, and no matter what your circumstances in life may be.

The interview pages on my previous site were visited by over 100,000 women all over the world and the interviews inspired so many women and it was an honor for me to have been able to connect with so many amazing women.

A few months ago due to losing my job in 2008, I was forced to shut down my site which was very expensive at the place I was hosting the site and I was deeply saddened by this. I thought my dream of these women helping me to inspire women was lost forever and I had no idea at the time how I could find a way to still be able to share these amazing interviews with women all over the world.

But then an amazing thing happened and I realized although I was bummed about this, it was actually a blessing in disguise when I came to the conclusion that I could put these interviews in a book and still be able to reach and inspire even more women around the world.

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours. Henry David Thoreau
It had been a long time since I interviewed these women and I knew I might not reach all of them to get their permission to include the interviews in the book, but I figured what the heck, it doesn't hurt to try and I started sending out emails to each woman with the hopes that they would remember me and still believe in Donna Webster and my dream of inspiring women around the world.

I am so excited to say that they did remember me and in my dreams of inspiring women and I am putting the book together now and am on the road to self publishing these amazing interviews in a book.

Life can be so unexpected at times and throws curve balls at us sometimes and it is easy to fall off the path we are on sometimes and I am proof of that. Losing my job and being unemployed still to this day has been a very challenging and emotional time for me, and I became a little lost along the way and my dreams of inspiring and touching lives through my writing and my passion for inspiring women in any way that I can was pushed aside while I have been trying to survive like millions of others who like me, have lost their jobs.

But what I realized is that when you have dreams in your heart and soul, they are never completely lost. They may get pushed aside for some time while dealing with unexpected things in life, but God gives us dreams for a reason and no dream is ever completely lost unless you decide to give up on your dreams.

And for me I decided that I will not give up on my dreams no matter what. I have so many dreams and goals which have not been brought to life yet, but I know I have the power to bring them to life and that is exactly what I choose to do.

We all have the power to choose. So my question to you is, what dreams do you choose today?

Always Remember that you are Beautiful, Strong, Powerful, Fearless, Amazing, Divine, and most important of all YOU ARE ENOUGH! Divine Diva Donna
