About The Daily Diva Word, Little Ditties to Lift Your Spirits

The most important conversations are the ones you have with yourself. You can talk yourself in or out of anything when you focus and in this 24/7 world, focus has become a precious commodity.

The Daily Diva Word takes a fresh new look at our everyday language. Words are used as a catalyst to spur creativity, give hope, remember a friend, have faith and fun. Whether you sizzle, dazzle, believe or indulge, your day gets a happy start. A focus to bring only the best into your world. They are Little Ditties to Lift Your Spirits.

‘When I realized that in any given moment, who I chose to be in any situation could create war or peace. I started choosing peace. It wasn’t a false positive thought or a fake behavior. If I liked my reaction to life’s challenges, I stayed happy and if I lost my temper or complained, I felt worse. Then it dawned on me, why would I choose to feel miserable if I could control it?’ remembers Maureen on her own journey with the creation of The Daily Diva Word.

Women are much like the Pink Flamingo, who travel in flocks and create community. Connection to each other is very important to them. The vibrant pink color of their feathers comes from what they eat. Without proper nutrition, their colors fade and become drab. What we feed our minds and spirit determines the vibrancy of our lives. The Daily Diva Word is a gentle reminder each day that yes, you too are important in the grand scheme of life and when you feed your mind happy thoughts, you become a happy girl.

What Women Say About The Daily Diva Word

It reminds me that I have a lot to offer—and if I’m a little down it is an ‘instant pick up.’ It gives me a very positive attitude! And I like that there are lots of other women out there getting it too. I’m not the only one who looks for insight.
—Barbara M, Chicago, IL

I love the Daily Diva Word because it inspires me, motivates me and gives me something to really think about! It gives my brain cells a boost, gets my creative juices flowing, sometimes it even gives me a much needed kick in the butt.
—Cynthia S., Republic, MO
