Great idea and count on my "beery" support. Do you like to have some BEER token for the contest winner?


Thanks for this lovely offer, will pass onto Ladies to revert soon....

!BEER today, tomorrow and always!

Hey @detlev, here is a little bit of BEER from @joanstewart for you. Enjoy it!

Do you want to win SOME BEER together with your friends and draw the BEERKING.

What a nice offer @detlev!

Yeah Ladies love beer too.... 😄

Let's get this going immediately!
The contest hosted by @joanstewart would be a great start!
Thanks for the "beery" support, my friend!

Thanks every little goes a long way @ladiesofhive many are @beerlover's I am sure, if not they will be!

How about a "six pack of beer" per week?

or a "box of 24 beer" for a one time event?

Will notify @silversaver888 and @thekittygirl both @ladiesofhive one will to revert to you here, thanks @detlev and @beertokens for generosity.

Where to send the beer to?

I love to make a post as well and push the news about the "Ladies of Hive"

I would think directly to @ladiesofhive writing a post a great idea @detlev all welcome 😄

I see BEER Community is into Week 225 already, must be the longest standing golden liquid contest on Hive.

It is the longest running challenge and it was eating tons of my time.

But it was as well creating the beer community with more than 1100 members

The @ladiesofhive account is the official face of our project, so that is the best place for the tokens to reside. Thank you for your support of our project! We appreciate your generosity! 🙂

Taking life and making it your own in unusual career path.

Thank you very much 😍.

I'm going to read about it 👀.

Enhancing tolerance levels to endure ever changing life, being aware of peacefulness in body and mind, a good experience to adapt into daily life.

Yesss thank you for the comment, i think so too. I would rather to train my tolerance little by little as time goes by so the thing that upset me will decrease and the thing that will make me happy will increase

Learning to walk away sometimes just feels better, well for my sanity!

when is the deadline for this?

Join in the next one @petrahaller time is out on #52 now.

Other great ideas @joanstewart. thanks for your two questions. I like the first question. But unfortunately @winnietran wrote down my thoughts so I can't participate this time.
"I never wanted to be myself, I just wanted to be a better version of me, that's why I always want to learn and improve myself every day"
@winnietran reading your post, i found my own thoughts, a nice article em.

good initiative... i will take part in this interesting contest.... thanks for giving us opportunity to share our reviews regarding above question.

Don't forget now @gargiwill will be lovely to see your entry.

Hello, hello, my beautiful loves!
I couldn't be here next week, but I'm back to share with you.
This week's questions are full of depth. They are questions to look back and evaluate ourselves.
I love them.

Look forward to reading when you ready to post @yeceniacarolina

Did I dream big??? Or did I settle?
Something to think about!

Most probably hit the jackpot and we know nothing of it... Waiting in anticipation @silversaver888

You are making me think! 😊

I'm still dreaming of my own sailing ship.
My old dream of a Punk band Queen is so yesterday.

Sailing ship sounds a great option! Good sea legs?

I got pretty good watertight boots.
I worked a few seasons on several fishing boats but my fillet knife was a lot smaller than this one.
I would love to retire to play pirate in the Caribbean.

Neat boots, hope you get to play pirate without a mask...

Hehehe... what happened to it???

The short: too wild a lifestyle for my taste and you can't build a music career knowing only 3 guitar chords, at the time. And one creep, two timing, ass... you get the ideal. 😤

Me encanto este concurso y aprovecho para compartir con ustedes lo que la vida me ha dejado.
A mi amiga @nayki77, no dudes en participar y darte un breve paseo por mi publicación.

Thanks for your entry @lesliekat enjoyed reading.

Thanks for your thought provoking entry, made me think of the song "How many roads must a man walk down" by Bob Dylan 😉

I think you have given us the link back to this page for the contest @otuyanancy please come back to add your link 😌

Sorry about that, I have made the correction.

Little mistakes happen all the time 😁

😁Hi, this is my entry 🌸

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." ~ Confucius

Wow from day dreaming as a little girl to achieving as a young woman, you have been busy getting to where you want to be, well done!

Experience through hard work, passing on knowledge to family who always come first in our lives. Lovely advice in achieving what you desired.

Wonderful initiative, looking forward to read all entries, here’s mine

Massive decisive moves to be proud of! Entering retirement years you will be sure to find something new to explore and enjoy.

Thank you @ladiesofhive and @joanstewart for this amazing opportunity to share a few of our life experiences. I'm further motivated just reading about other ladies' stories.

This is my entry for this contest

Striving to achieve what you really wanted, and you got there... now assisting others in their lives!

There are still more barriers to break and limits to push. The more women that join to change the status quo, the better for the younger girls coming up. We will keep going.

Always new barriers, by sharing the right growth tools hopefully young generation will be better prepared.

@joanstewart I totally agree. That's the goal.

So many "WHAT IFS" in my past that life would have been so different that what it is now.

Using my excuse @kerrislravenhill now is the time 😄

Could have been a Punk band queen when I got 7 minutes of noisy, guitar screeching, ear deafening musical fame. But wasn't worth losing my hearing and constantly getting my butt pinched by the rowdy club patrons.

Bleeding ear syndrome and blue butt would be quite a sight in your punk gear outfit :)

If I jumped into the mosh pit after the lead singer I would have had more than butt pinched and other body parts squeezed but my wallet lifted too. No thanks, I'll take the stairs.

Oh dear the stairs it is definitely do not want you exposed to all that pressure.... 😜

Thanks @hivebuzz still buzzing around!

You're welcome @joanstewart, that's well deserved! Keep buzzing like this 😊🌹 Have a nice day.

Very thought provoking questions @joanstewart! Although they always seem to be and it usually gets me thinking buuuuuuuut not writing. Thanks to @farm-mom for the invite. Guess this week is a good week to ponder

Look forward to seeing your entry if you find time @buckaroobaby with loadshedding life is not easy to get everything done!

Took me all week of writing and re-writing and RE-WRITING but here it is @joanstewart! I also had the distraction of these cuties, but here it is:


Oh my what a great distraction, never seen a nest in a cactus like this. Now that is super interesting!

Thanks for the entry, yes life comes with so many bumps, it ridding ourselves of the bruises and carrying on, sometimes something good is waiting around the very next corner.


Will try to get the post on Ladies of Hive

Hard way to learn @deraaa , bounced right back, now finding through experiences you are able to grow.

So exciting... I'm loving almost everything about my field actually

We can never know everything, hope you end up in great teams learning as you progress.

Hi, this is my entry for this week contest
Thank you so much @joanstewart for your interesting questions!

Reaching the cross-roads full of surprises enjoying life with all the changes encountered. Good to hear you happy approaching the next step!

Writer of fiction novel, altering to writing script for TV show, appears to have lost identity of who you wish to become.

Good day! Here my entry Good luck ♥️

Adjusting to personal preference throughout to make a sustainable living, a strong business sense. Doing what parents desire is not always something we are able to do.

Hello, that's right, for my part I have always known how to adapt to any situation to support myself financially, I think it is one of the good things that I have, and as for pleasing the parents I feel that it is a real waste of time because we ourselves are the ones who we should choose our own path and make our own decisions.

Agreed, one thing taught is always be able to support yourself since you cannot rely on anyone.

Parents in our growing up years would not let the girls go out of city for further studies, most ended up in administrative work locally as was expected being single girls, times have changed!

Really hope one day soon you will find ways to incorporate both degrees into earnings.

This is really a self reflection contest .I enjoyed participating in it
My entry

Pushing forward without formal education is tedious, assisting friends and family in daily struggle of life. Wishing you well as medic assistant growing in education to reach your dreams.
