Peace begins with a smile. Mother Teresa

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. Mother Teresa

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God – the rest will be given. Mother Teresa

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go. Mother Teresa

Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own. Mother Teresa

 

It seems to me that no matter what people do these days to make themselves feel a little better about their crappy lives, they can not even get that right! If they are not complaining about something or just being negative, they are the ones who have a problem! No wonder people use the excuse they have to stay home now because of this crazy virus! You think maybe it is really because they are sick of all this sh*t?????

Well, let us remember that having a sense of humor does seem to help us live a little longer instead of just having a heart attack and dropping dead! I guess a lot of people just will continue going and doing whatever the hell they want, and the hell with everyone else!

 

Peace with with you all! Try to smile!

Keep on talking

I have a problem

OK, I admit to at least this one!

Once I get in the mood to talk, I will not stop. It is not like I know that I should stop, I just do not want to! I can see the look in the persons eyes when I continue on with my stories. They wished they never asked me that question! I am sure you have been in these spots, at least a few times in your life! I do not always feel like talking. Most of the time I just like to be left alone so I can just do what I feel like. I love yoga and meditation. I do not like to do this in a group setting. I do not want to be around others often. I know that this must  sound crazy to you, but it is just normal for me. Always has been, and always will be. So, if you happen to see me or come over to my house, please be warned. lol

I hope you can also always say what you are feeling to others and always have an empathetic ear or two around. Hope you keep the faith!

Making the turn that works for you

live your life.jpg

Every day you have to hear the same thing over and over again

You just can not take it any longer

You express yourself to others

You are dazzled by their response

You feel like no one really understands

You just want to run away, really far

That way it will all just disappear

Things will be nice and calm

You can just do what ever you feel like

Well, wrong

That fantasy will only last as long as you decide to make it last

You did not have to be so dramatic in your previous life

You just had to open your eyes

The world is the world, no matter where you decide to make it yours

The key point is, make it yours!

Get involved

Get a new reality set in your head

ENJOY, SMILE, CRY,APPLAUD

Just LIVE!

My recent TRAVELS

Well, I did it. I managed to survive the long plane ride to my beautiful destinations. I have not been to Europe since 1992, so you can imagine how overwhelmed I was! I was taking in so much information 23/7 that I thought my head would explode! We rented a car in Ireland and managed to put on over 1000 miles! We went everywhere! One of my sons organized the trip. He did an awesome job!We did day trips to London and Madrid. I have never walked so much for ages! I did manage to keep up. lol

Believe in Yourself

Well, it seems like I am gravitating these days to my blog that I have been away from on a regular basis. It seems like I want to express myself these days. When I get thoughts into my head that take over what I am trying to do at that moment, I just say “What the *ell,” i am going to blog. Now, I do not know how long this is going to go on…so, please bear with me. 🙂 Some of my blogging friends are so good about blogging EVERY DAY! I remember when I first started, I would stay up most of the night blogging and posting!! Blogging has helped me with my mental health. When my mental health is stronger, my physical health follows on a much better path. So, those of you who stop by and do not have a blog….start one! Those of you who are so kind and generous with your time to visit my blog often….thank you. May you all find in your life what you need to make each day go by a bit easier. I always SMILE. No matter what, I reflect on all of my blessings and a smile magically appears.

Believe in Yourself

I like to stay home. I like to not always have someplace to go. I like getting up in the morning when I feel like it. I like no one telling me what I need to do for the day. I like to make my own plans and see where they go. I do not feel you always have to have a goal that you get all crazy about to meet. Where does it say that I am required to have goals? I personally feel that if I am in the position to do what ever comes my way, why not? If I do want to plan something, why not? Life goes on day by day. I can even break it down to minute by minute. I wish to just see what happens and then do what I need to do. I appreciate others feeling concerned, but it is your choice to feel that way. I am fine. Thank you for being a friend. That means a lot to me. 🙂

Believe in Yourself

You know, all you can really do is live your life with whatever comes your way. You can plan all of this stuff in your head, but why bother. The next day, something usually happens and you have to do something else. You just spent the whole night losing sleep over it! For what? I plan on just taking each day with a smile on my face and dealing with whatever *hit is thrown at me. I figure if I try to have a positive attitude, it would be better for my health than a negative one. Do you not agree with that? It does not matter what anyone else thinks, just what I believe to be the best for me. So, I guess I got this out of me and now I can continue with my day. I do want you all to understand that I do appreciate your taking the time to stop by my blog.

Rest in Peace Mom

mom-2017

butterfly-rose

It is my belief that my mom is resting in peace now. She was lucky enough to live out her life the way she felt like. She overcame many struggles. She enjoyed many moments of happiness. She always did her best to make all of those around her happy. Since she is of Italian decent, she just loved to feed people! If you did not eat what she made, she would say, “What’s wrong with the food, eat!” LOL After a while, we all just surrendered and ate. LOL She worked until she was 81 years old as a food demo person at Costco Wholesale. She loved feeding all of the customers, especially the kids. LOL She took ill a few years ago. She managed to do her best. She passed quietly in her sleep at 85 years old. We should all be so lucky, huh?

We made an EVERIPEDIA page for my mom. You can do one for any of your loved ones that have passed. I was touched when the team did this.

Any prayers for my mom DELIA, would be appreciated.

New Years Resolution in progress

Well, every new year we all seem to make resolutions that we start out strong with and then they manage to fade out. I made a different one this year that I believe will be simple to do. Every morning I walk into my closet to decide what to wear, I always grab the same stuff! I have years of clothes accumulated in my closet, but I ALWAYS manage to reach for those same pants, top, etc. that I have been wearing for days! I decided to push myself to change this! Every day NOW I will pick out something different! My hubby is going to help me with this. He said he would tell me if he notices I am going back to my old habit. ( He also knows if he says the wrong thing, I will explode! LOL)
So far this year, I have been right on track. I will make it a habit to post some of my photos more often. They SHOULD show me in different clothes!

Just wondering, what is your resolution for 2017?

I have been really busy writing away as a Master Editor for my friends at Everipedia.com. Have you created your page yet? What are you waiting for? Come on over! If you want a page, just ask! 🙂
