Some inspiration to ponder as a new week begins

Often, the only thing that is keeping us from being happier is our perspective. If you experience negativity, fear, lack, cup-half-empty perspective on life, of course you can't be truly happy.

Happiness is not a destination. That means it's not going to happen when _________ . (Fill in the blank) Happiness is a way of traveling, it's the energy we live in, it's where love comes from.

The quickest, and easiest way to begin to shift your energy toward happiness is to start a gratitude journal. That means write down what you're grateful for

Try doing this everyday for a few weeks and see how it shifts your way of thinking.

To be truly happy, inspiration and laughter are key.

Some Inspiration for Today

I think this one is my favorite of all inspirational quotes. I love this because I live my life by this motto.

This next one was posted by my 13 year old daughter on her facebook wall tonight. I love that girl. She is my motivation and inspiration to be a better person. Here goes:

We aren't the girls who get 42 'likes' on our Facebook pictures,
We aren't the girls that act dumb to get the guys, or that wear shorts so short they're like belts.
We care more about music than popularity.
We are the girls who have laughing fits without worrying if our faces look weird.
We are the girls who don't care about how much we eat
We are the girls who genuinely care about how you are
We are the girls who don't make a big deal of what you said 2 years ago
We are the girls who care more about being nice than who thinks that we're 'hot', We are the girls who can be quiet and often overlooked, but I guarantee:
We are the girls you'd rather be friends with.

and that was posted by a 13 year old :-)

Daily dose of inspiration and humor Enjoy

This is GOOD!!! THIS IS US!!!

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.

HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took

The melody out of music,

The pride out of appearance,

The courtesy out of driving,

The romance out of love,

The commitment out of marriage,

The responsibility out of parenthood,

The togetherness out of the family,

The learning out of education,

The service out of patriotism,

The Golden Rule from rulers,

The nativity scene out of cities,

The civility out of behavior,

The refinement out of language,

The dedication out of employment,

The prudence out of spending,

The ambition out of achievement or God out of government and school.

And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!

And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over their hearts!

Quotes spoken from a senior citizen LOL

I'm the life of the party..... Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

I'm very good at opening childproof caps..... With a hammer.

I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.

I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!

Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them, but I would send it to many more too!

Spread the laughter

Share the cheer

Let's be happy

While we're here.

Inspiration for Today- Adult Truths

20 Interesting Adult Truths

1. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize that you are wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was youger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure that we can all get out of our own neighborhoods.
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.
10. Bad decisions make good stories.
11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection again…again
13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

19. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey- but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.
20. The first testicular guard, the “Cup” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means that it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Just a little funny wine inspiration for today


To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine...and those who don't

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) - bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Water = Poop,
Wine = Health

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service LOL

Have a great Tuesday

A day without laughter is a day wasted ENJOY!

Jennifer Hudson gave me inspiration tonight :-)

As are millions of other people tonight, I am watching the Grammies. Let me just say that they could not have picked someone more fitting than Jennifer Hudson to sing for Whitney Houston (RIP Whitney). As I am watching this show, I am also on facebook. A facebook friend of mine just posted the following (I am copying and pasting their post) These are not my words

"Jenifer Hudson has no right to sing this song, not even close vocally to Whitney! Whatever Whitney was as a person she was one a the greatest voices ever and you ms Hudson are not! Nice try though! I'm a rock dude but I always understood the magnatude of Whitneys talent and it's a shame that when she finally started to really let that voice loose she also discovered demons that live with in so many us! So a huge voice in such a week person, who will ever forget "Crack is whack" on 60 minutes? I don't ever think it's a tragedy when shit like this happens just a waste!"

This post outraged me. First of all, Weak in this aspect of the post is not spelled "week" but more importantly, I couldn't think of a better person to sing for Whitney. I have always loved Whitney Houston's music. Jennifer Hudson has overcome so much tragedy in her life. Just 4 years ago, her mother, brother and nephew were brutally murdered. Do you see her sitting back, doing drugs etc and making a mess of her life because she had a bad childhood or she has suffered a horrible tragedy? NOOO!! Jennifer Hudson is someone that our youth should be admiring. She grew up poor, suffered such tragadies and is doing good. She's strong. She's admirable. She is someone that I would want my own 13 year old daughter to look up to. She has shown the world that your past does not determine your future. Jennifer Hudson, I admire you. I respect you. You deserve to make millions because you are an awesome role model. Whitney Houston would have been proud of you singing her song tonight. Great job Jennifer!

I didn't post a response on that person's facebook page (simply because facebook is a social networking site and people should be able to voice their opinions) and honestly, I have learned throughout my life to pick my battles. I don't talk politics, I don't talk stuff like this directly. So, I am venting here on my blog LOL.

Saddened to hear about the death of Whitney Houston tonight :-(

I was sad to hear about the death of Whitney Houston tonight. So much talent and taken too soon. It's so sad to see how drugs destroy a person's life. She had so much beauty and talent and unfortunately, she wasted all of that for drugs. Children left without a mother :-( My own brother lost his life back in 1988 due to a $20 marijuana deal that went wrong. My father is a drug addict. My own daughter's "biological dad" is a drug addict. It's a real shame. Another life unlived- very sad. I have always love Whitney's music since I was a little girl.

RIP Whitney.

A few inspirational quotes for the day. Anyone that reads my blog knows how much I love my daughter and how much that my daughter gave me the inspiration to overcome everything and make me the person that I am today. My daughter is 13 now and is growing up. It's hard for me because she is my baby :-( LOL- This one is how I feel right now about her.

and a random one about life in general

Never judge anyone

A friend of mine shared this on facebook today and it just really touched me so I had to repost

must read!!!!!!!

~ Never Judge Anyone ~

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being call...ed in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call ASAP, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block.
He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. Once seeing him, the dad yelled:
“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled and said:
“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily

The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Bible “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”

“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “Thank God! Your son is saved!”

And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”

“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”

NEVER JUDGE ANYONE because you never know how their life is and as to what is happening or what they’re going through.

A little warped sense of inspiration for today- Karma Inspiration

So yesterday, I had a bit of warped sense of inspiration. I work in an office where there is one coworker who is always really negative. He complains about everything and everybody. He talks terribly about coworkers behind their backs and is constantly trying to get people in trouble with the bosses. He acts as if he is the only one that does any work (and he really doesn't do much but get into everybody's business). Have you ever worked in an office with somebody like that before? I sit right next to him and he can be a real downer sometimes. Nobody in the office really likes him. Well, let me get to the point now- He goes into the men's bathroom yesterday and than can't get the door open to come back out. It's one of those heavy, wood commercial doors and somehow the knob broke and the door wouldn't open. He's inside the bathroom, beating on the door, yelling "HELP". It took the president of the company almost a half hour to get him out. He had to eventually take the door off.

I guess it is mean to say that it was hilarious. The whole office was in hysterics (just simply because of who it happened to)

Call it KARMA!!!!!!! LOL

A best friend post from my 13 year old daughter

I am copying and pasting a post that my 13 year old daughter made tonight on her facebook page to her own best friend

Being "bestfriends" isn't a label, it's a promise. It's not about who you've known the longest, it's about who came and never left. (Well, I've known you my whole life too.)
It's about having someone who knows how crazy you are, but still chooses to be seen with you in public. It's about having someone who, even after you claim you're okay, can look you in the face and tell you you're not. You've always been there for me, and I'll always be there for you

Ahhh I love my daughter. That was an actual post from her own words to her best friend. Real friends are important
