Inspire me to be……..


Take a deep breath.

Close those eyes.

Think about a warm place.

Imagine you are there.

Inhale the surroundings.

Feel the pressure on your shoulders fly away.


A good idea.

Imagine you are free to roam the world.

Seek those places where there is laughter.

Feel the love.

Become aware of the smile on your face.

Life is beautiful.

Life is powerful.

Life is worth the sacrifices.

Live life.

Fly home.

There you will find peace.


Keep the faith.

Believe in Yourself….

If you have ever felt like things were only going to get worse. If you have felt like you just did not have what it takes. If you have just resolved yourself to being a failure. Then, listen up. You are not alone. Many have been in the same situation before. Many have felt like they just wanted to stop everything. Many have felt like they just did not have what it takes to succeed.

I feel many come to these conclusions because they lack support. Many lack love. Many lack friendships. Many lack family.

There are also many out there in this world that REALLY do care. They REALLY want to help. They REALLY want to give you whatever inspiring words you might need to move on. I say to you all, find these people. Look in your community. Look to your religious institutions. Look to your governemnt agencies. Just take the time to look.

Reason being, you do matter. You do count. You do have a statement to make to this world. You do have what it takes to succeed.

Succeeding can mean many things. Good health. Good friends. Good family. Good job. Good peace. Good judgement. Good…lots of things.

Just Believe in Yourself. You have to be the one to take the first step. You have to be the one who makes the right choices about your life. You have the power. You just might need a little support along the way.

I never pass on support. I never pass on opinions from others. I never pass on acheiving peace within my soul.

Make today to first day of your new challenge. The world awaits. Stay well. Stay healthy. Smile often.

Man, I do not know about this! This city gives me the creeps! I mean look at all these people! Look at these unimpressive stores! How do people live here without going crazy?

I guess I had better come up with a plan. I have to make it a GREAT one. I do not want a boring schedule. I can think of a few things. Let’s see, I will get new friends by tonight!

That’s dumb! I do not even know where to go! I guess I can ask someone. Maybe I will go to get a coffee and see what happens! Good idea!

I see a place, the Manhatten Corner. Sounds like a good place. It looks really busy, good sign. Lots of cute guys in here. I see a blond, blue eyed guy I am going to go talk to!

He catches my eye… “Hi” he says…
I flash him a broad smile. Everyone says I have a smile to die for!
“Would you like to sit down?” He offers me a chair.
Is this where I say something cool and interesting?

“So, are you new in town?” he finally offers. I shrug my shoulders sheepishly, “Is it that obvious?” I ask? He gives me the once over before replying, “You don’t look like the average girl from around these parts.”

Just what do girls look like from around these parts I ask him a little flirtatiously? I’m worried about my little friend in my purse. She may be thirsty from all the travel. Just as this cute guy sits down, my purse starts whimpering.

Peeking out of her purse is the cutest little puppy, her name is Zena. He takes one look at her and falls instantly in Love. Zena begins to paw at him. He offers up the idea to find a small bowl to fill with water. She must be thirsty, as they’ve been sitting there for awhile.

I began to think that things were looking up for me. I mean, here is a guy who “likes me and my dog!” We took care of Zena and then just kept looking at one another. Was this the start of my new life? I could just see me married to this man, but I did not even know his name!

I thanked him for helping me take care of Zena and our eyes locked onto one another. I flirtatiously asked “so what’s your name?” His eyes suddenly opened wide and his cheeks began to turn a pale shade of red. He sat back in his chair and began to nervously fiddle with the napkin on the table. I could tell that this simple question has made him uncomfortable, but why?

Now I know why this guy looked the way he looked! It was that “bad” guy I saw on “American’s Most Wanted!!!” Now what do I do? My life was just starting to look “brighter,” and then THIS! Should I just pretend I do not know?

Or should I keep acting like I was? My heart was thumping hard in my chest and Zena needed to go outside. I’m not about to leave this place with this guy. Suddenly, there’s a hand on my shoulder and I jumped out of my skin. As I slowly turn my head,

a friend from the past caught my eye. Relief, I felt, to my surprise came the hard cold object in my side. My whole life started to pass through my mind when,

my high school classmate said, “What brings you to New York, Chavela?” I was relieved, it was someone I used to be in the band with. I said, ” Hello, Eva, I got a new job as a model for Victoria’s Secret!”” Do you live here, too,?” I asked. She replied she was searching for someone who needed a roommate. I smiled at that!

Of course, I immediately asked her to come take a look at my place and see if she were interested. She was delighted to hear this offer! We left the coffee shop with an excited Zena, and were both looking to a brighter future in our new home, Manhattan!!

THE END………….

Phase 1

You are listening to jazz — Your first day at work is great. Your coworkers are wonderful, your cubicle is cute, and your boss is the best!

Phase 2

You are listening to pop music — After a while you are so busy that you are not sure if you’re coming or going anymore.

Phase 3

You are listening to heavy metal — This is what you feel like at month end.

Phase 4
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
You are listening to hip hop — You become bloated due to stress, feel sluggish and suffer from constipation. Your coworkers are too cheerful for your liking and the walls of your cubicle are closing in. You have started thinking ‘WHATEVER’ about your boss.

Phase 5

You are listening to GANGSTA RAP — After more time passes, your eyes start to twitch, you forget what a ‘good hair day’ feels like as you just fall out of bed and load up on caffeine.

Phase 6
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
You are listening to the voices in your head — You have build a makeshift door on your cubicle to keep people out, You have a dartboard with your bosses picture on it in your cube, You wonder why you are even here in the first place.
