Dont Be Discouraged. It’s Often The Last Key in the Bunch That Opens the Lock!

Dont Be Discouraged. It's Often The Last Key in the Bunch That Opens the Lock!

This very poignant quote comes from my friends at LiveLifeHappy.com. I follow everything they do on Facebook and you can too!

Persistence is a hard one to follow when you have tried many other options, but much like this quote, the last call might be the one that helps you!

I can say that today because I talked to a clinical social worker named Mary who listened to my plight, the hell I have undergone with my family fighting over the place I am living in, causing me health problems. She is going to help me get a studio apartment and help me raise my quality of life 200%.

Here is a great article written by Nancy K. on a blog entitled “Nancy Coaches” for your reading enjoyment.
I will never wear an ear piece or talk to myself when I am walking, looking like a crazy person. When you wear an ear piece in public you are also wearing blinders to what is going on around you!
Few people are really that important to warrant it.
Live in the moment and for a day, turn off your cell phone, tell your friends what you are doing, and work on something, put your entire heart, soul and body into it! Watch what happens-you will finish what you begin!

“Write Your Sad Times in Sand Your Great Times in Stone

“Write your sad times in sand, write your great times in stone.”- George Bernard Shaw

If this doesn’t speak reams about what you place importance on in life, I don’t know what does. Thank you Beedempled Brain on Facebook for showing me this fantastic quote from the late great George Bernard Shaw.

I hope it inspires my 728 followers as much as it did me.

“In this short Life that only lasts an hour…..

In this short life that only lasts an hour….

How much- how little – is within our power.”

– Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson hated to go out in public and wrote very deep poems, each one being numbered instead of named. I have her complete works by Ralph Franklin, the Director of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library  at Yale University and two other books about Emily Dickinson. She is one of the many authors I read about when studying and analyzing the works of Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, Henry David Thoreau, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Carl Sands-who was a woman, but used a man’s name because women did not have the rights that they do today and would never have gotten published! Can you believe it?

This one is short but it is very true.

Needless our lives don’t really last an hour, but she uses that as a metaphor to show how quickly time goes by.

The Sea Speaks To Me In Words That Sound like Waves

Photography and Poetry by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

The Sea Speaks to Me

In Words that sound like waves,

In the song of the sea gulls that fly over me and sing a sea song

In people who smile

In the surfers that never grow old

In the salt scented air that blows through my hair and kisses my face

And in the palm trees that line the coast

IN the sand left in my shoes…

And the lone shell that used to inhabit a sea creature that is now a memory….of the sea…and me

and my reverie…

Making me glad I am alive.

Dreams in the Dusk by Carl Sandburg &

Saying Goodbye to the Day by Paulette L. Motzko Photo Montage II,

Copyright January 2013

Dreams in the dusk,

Only dreams closing the day

And with the day’s close going back

To the gray things, the dark things,

The far, deep things of dreamland.

Dreams, only dreams in the dusk,

Only the old remembered pictures

Of lost days when the day’s loss

Wrote in tears the heart’s loss.

Tears and loss and broken dreams

May find your heart at dusk.

Young Sea & Big Expanse of Blue

Photographic Word Montage by Paulette Le Pore Motzko and Carl Sandburg

The sea is never still.

It pounds on the shore

Restless as a young heart,

Hunting.

The sea speaks

And only the stormy hearts

Know what it says:

It is the face

        of a rough mother speaking.

The sea is young.

One storm cleans all the hoar

And loosens the age of it.

I hear it laughing, reckless.

They love the sea,

Men who ride it

And know they will die

Under the salt of it

Let only the young come,

Says the sea.

Let them kiss my face

And hear me.

I am the last word

And I tell

Where storms and stars come from.

Discovering Your Joy-Capitalizing on Your Assets

ExtraordinaryViewPointsDiscoverYourJoy1.25.2013Some times we need to do a little self-introspection to find out what we were meant to do.

I did a lot of that when I couldn’t earn a living teaching piano any more, or at least in my area. We don’t have to do one thing in life any how. The more “irons you have in the fire” the more chance you have of earning a living. Most investment consultants suggest that you have at least two sources of income, so if one phases out, you have a back up that will take over.

Take out a piece of paper, your journal or your word processing program and write down 10 things that you love to do most. Things that give you joy and you could do it all day.

Then after you write those things down, write down another list of your skills and special abilities or talents.

This could take a week to do, but then again, you are worth a week of your time, aren’t you?

The more you get to know YOU, the better chance you will arrive at a career that you were meant to live.

Once you get your two lists-The first being what gives you joy and your passions, and the second-your special abilities and talents, look at them and analyze them all.

Look and see if you can see a career that combines a combination of the talents that you use all in one.

Make a list of the candidates of jobs/careers. Career is what you are shooting for, because it has a future, a way you can advance and it is something you will be doing 5 years from now.

If you have an Android phone or IPhone with the Vocal Search app on it, talk into it and say your abilities and then say the word “careers in _________” and see what you come up with.

These are brainstorming methods for arriving at jobs you will truly love.

People that do what they love live longer, have less stress and their days go by so quickly they don’t even realize it.

I hope that at least a dozen of my readers out of the 712 followers I have on this site do this, then write in with what they came up with. It should be interesting.

If even one of my 700+ readers discover a new life for themselves that helps them feel rewarded and happy, this was worth writing and posting for the world to see!

Chapters like this one is an example of what will be in my upcoming book. If you would like to get on my Book List, email me at: TotallyInspiredPC@gmail.com.

Prayer is a Cry of Gratitude and Love in the Midst of Trial and Joy

Prayer is a Cry of Gratitude and Love in the Midst of Trial and Joy

That quote came from a saint I am was named after when I was confirmed in 2001-Therese. She promised to shower roses from the Throne of God for anyone who prayed for her intercession to God.

I don’t understand it but I have many roses I have found-where no roses grow-after praying the Chaplet of St. Therese.

Then again, we don’t have to understand everything. We never will.

We should worry less about what we all believe, what race we are and things that stop us from communicating with one another. Tolerance and understanding are the bridges to the signing the next Peace Treaty.

The Happiest People Don’t Have The Best of Everything

The Happiest People Don't Have The Best of Everything

They Just Make the Best of Everything.

It is all in perspective ya know folks!

Your view on life is your single biggest asset you have.
Remove the people who drag you down and only associate with positive people who have the same morals you do.
There is no use being around anything less than that.

After all, who you avoid is just as important as who you are around. By avoiding the unpleasant souls in the world, whose only purpose is to drag you down and be a naysayer, you are insuring you won’t end up like them!

This image I found on Face Book, one of my favorite sites in the world. I have met more extraordinary people on there than any other.
The photo came from Positive Inspirational Quotes. An awesome site on Facebook. Search em’ and you will get a feed of the many poignant things I do each day. I look forward to them every day!

Great Read: 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans

Great Read: 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans

A picture I took of the book with my Android 4G MyTouch phone…it is a great book and I am still reading it.

Dr. Karl Pellemer, Ph.D interviews senior citizens from all walks of life with a variety of backgrounds and asks them questions about what they valued, how they described success, topics like marriage, children, money and other interesting things.

He terms older Americans as “Experts on Living”, which I really love. It is a new way of thinking about the people who have endured, did without, and lived in a time when cell phones hadn’t been invented yet or “asking google” etc.

I have loved every page and feel touched,  looking at my world through new eyes.

Huntington Beach Surfers in January

Huntington Beach Sufers in January

Does this look like winter-time?
Well, amazingly it is though in Huntington Beach, CA, a place I love, I lived when I was married and a place I come back to daily.
I just want to make enough money to live here or find a nice non smoking room mate who doesn’t party all night, drives, has a dependable job and is a good person.

I almost forgot-In the room mate situation, I would do all the cooking and you would love every little bite and I am good for making you laugh and smile too.

If this were your last day…

I can relate to the words that Daniel says here in this article. I would have to say “yes” to Daniel’s question of: “If this were my last day. If I were to just up and vanish. Would I have been proud of myself?” I would answer-
“Yes I am proud of what I have accomplished in life in spite of great adversity I persisted and didn’t just survive I thrived. I changed many lives, saved others, and I have and always will be a caring, empathetic person that believes that every person has innate talents and I have a talent for seeing someone’s potential and bringing helping them make the most of their abilities.” Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Believe in All That You Are-Poem by Leslie Neilson

Text and captions and photographs and

photo selection by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

As the dawn of each morning…

peers into your life,

there lies a path to follow.

Delicate whispers can be heard

if you listen to the sound of your heart

and the voice that speaks within you.

If you listen closely to your soul,

you will become aware of your dreams

that are yet to unfold.

You will discover that there lies within you

a voice of confidence and strength

that will prompt you to seek a journey

and live a dream.

Within the depths of your mind,

the purpose and direction of your life

can be determined by listening intently

to the knowledge that you already possess.

Your heart, mind, and soul

are the foundation

of your success and happiness.

In the still of each passing moment,

may you come to understand that

you are capable of reaching a higher destiny.

When you come to believe in all that you are

and all that you can become,

there will be no cause for doubt.

Believe in your heart, for it offers hope.

Believe in your mind for it offers direction.

Believe in your soul, for it offers strength.

But above all else…believe in yourself.

The stars in the night sky, the constellations represent the cosmos and the Omnipotent Presence we all believe in...or at least I do.Every day we are alive is one more day we can learn, become, throw away old habits and focus on what and who matters ad our main priorities in life.

Hospitality Consists of……. (You fill in the blank)….

“Hospitality consists of a little fire, a little food, and an immense quiet.”-

Ralph Waldo Emerson

We all have a different opinion of what we think defines “hospitality”. To one it is solitude, as in Emerson’s mind’s eye. For me, hospitality is what I give others who come to my house, and what I hope they take away when they leave-great food, interesting conversation and fantastic memories.

I remember when I was married in my big nice 6 bedroom house at the winder time in Sandy, UT. Sitting around the fire place when it was snowing serving home made hot chocolate or spiced cider to my guests still evokes pleasant memories.

Pozole Party I had in October 2012

Pozole Party I had in October 2012

I love to have big parties and gatherings again in my new place I am going to-once I find it! It matters not the size of the group gathered around the table, but that you are there, It matters not what you share, but that you are sharing. Some of the meager loaves of bread and soup are grander feasts than the biggest buffets when served by genuine kind people that are giving the best they have to give.

If I had but Two Loaves of Bread…..

This quote gives me one more reason to read the great philosophical work called The Koran.

“If I had but two loaves of bread, I would sell one and buy hyacinths, for they would feed my soul.

There is food for the body and for our nourishment and sustenance……like this Farm House Whole Wheat that I made.

A field of hyacinths for beauty to nourish the soul and refresh the spirit.

Be Strong and Don’t Give Up

Remember… there is a deeper strength

and an amazing abundance of peace

available to you.

Draw from this well,

call on your faith to uphold you.

Life continues around us,

even when our troubles seem to stop time.

There is always good in life.

Take a few minutes to distract yourself

from your concerns-

long enough to draw strength from a tree

or to find pleasure in a bird’s song.

Return a smile,

realize  that life is a series of levels,

cycles of ups and downs-

some easy, some challenging…

Through it all, we learn;

we grow strong in faith;

we mature in understanding.

The difficult times are often the best teachers,

and there is a good to be found in all situations.

Reach for the good.

Be strong, and don’t give up.

What Lies Behind Us….

yoga-pose

Yoga is wonderful Mind Body Spirit body therapy that gets us in tune with our “inner voice” and increases our mobility, consciousness, relaxes us, is good for meditation and the practice of it can improve many things in our lives, adding clarity to our perception of ourselves and us in the world.-Paulette Le Pore Motzko

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny compared to what lies within us.”

Another favorite quote from the great Ralph Waldo Emerson. One of my favorite writers in history. HE was one of the greatest writers that ever lived in my opinion.

Creating Balance In Your Life

Creating Balance in Your Life

Written by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Copyright January 7th-8th, 2013

This piece is dedicated to my friend Frank and Ed and myself and all the workaholics who don’t take enough time out for themselves and for smiling and creating that simple thing called JOY in their lives. Life doesn’t last forever and along with working, we need time to take care of ourselves-the whole person-mind, body and spirit/soul.-

Paulette Motzko

Too often we go through our day stumbling through our morning coffee, not taking time to meditate, say hello to those around us or even take time we think out what our priorities are.

I have always had a philosophy of “people first and things second” and I try to apply it throughout my day in any situation. For instance, I am a writer and I can work anywhere I take my laptop and Jetpack that connects me to the internet. I have places where I frequent where I know many of the people there and it is like a “club”. What people I don’t know I seem to meet and then fantastic things happen.

I am never too busy, even with earphones listening to a song on Pandora.com on one of the many stations I created there, or listening to an instrumental piece via my IPOD, to look around me and be aware of my surroundings. I will never ever wear an earpiece for any reason, and I believe many people have zoned out of their life to the world and the people around them using them. I realize that many jobs that require driving or other things, where you need to be “hands free” might require them. Even those, often don’t. I have seen people driving (as I am sitting waiting for the bus), waving their arms talking with one of those things, putting on mascara and holding conversations with themselves, looking like they are crazy. Wouldn’t it be better to simply drive? Have all one’s attention on the road; have all one’s reflexes paying attention to the lady or guy ahead of you or in back of you? Wouldn’t that increase your life span by increasing the odds you won’t get in an accident? That is how I think anyhow. It is only logical, and I was married to a real rocket scientist for nearly 15 years, so part of me thinks in that way now, which isn’t all bad.

Some things should be SACRED and you need to figure out what matters to you so you can preserve your integrity and your sanity. People make time for what and who matters to them, and to do this, you can either make the list using paper and a pen, or by using your trusty computer and a word processing program.

Define the things that you love doing and make sure you take time out for them every day. To begin with, a half hour might be all you can fit in. Gradually schedule an hour in, and I would greatly advocate more than that. This will lower your blood pressure, take some wrinkles off your forehead and let you have time to breathe easy, which is needed by everybody on the planet. Sure work is important, but if you aren’t having any fun and aren’t really “living” what is it all for? If all you are doing is work to keep up with the guy next door or outdo the other lady who is the fashionista. After all, who are you trying to impress?

I personally only am competing with myself and that is all. I read lots of books and magazines and know who the top of the food chain is in my business, and I want to impress them and others in the journalistic world. I also want to hopefully write words that help other or teach or inspire.

If I do that then it has been a good day.

Something I realized just last night that I need to create balance and harmony in my life is to set a mandate of no more than six hours a day to computer work. I will begin timing it and working smarter and working less. By doing this it will free up time for other avenues of my life that generate life and laughter and rest and rejuvenation, which is necessary for human life.

To figure out what you need to make you happy you have to think about what makes you “flourish” or as some say, “what make me tick” like a clock. I prefer the concept of a human being flourishing like a flower that needs water, soil and fertilizer to grow and bloom. Much like that flower, we need work, play, friends to do things with and share things with, and exercise and meditation and our spiritual life as well.

I just joined 24 Hour Fitness and I noticed how much better I felt and thought and how my attitude improved. I felt less lethargic and was getting compliments more often since I was going. The Adidas Tennis shoes and leggings I that I thought I didn’t look particular great in was the outfit I got the most compliments from! Funny how that works, isn’t it in life. I love walking by the sea or any other beautiful big open expanse. I can walk forever as long as I am looking at something extraordinary. The combination of the sea air, the people, the big expanse of blue invigorates my being and my very soul.

ActLikeThePersonYouHopeToMeetPLM11.11.2013

What makes you “come alive”?

What invigorates your soul?

Think about it. If you never did, it is a very fascinating and wonderful exercise.

I guarantee if you INVEST  the TIME in YOURSELF you will reap the DIVIDENDS a thousandfold in the quality of your life.

Paulette Motzko One With the Sea

Keep people around you that respect what is sacred to you. If they do not then they probably are not true friends. Once you make a list of the things you truly need to be happy, and then expand on it.

Make another greater list of the Projects and THINGS YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT, OR CLASSES YOU WANT TO TAKE AND THINGS THAT GIVE ME JOY LIST.

What these things are called is “Self-Exploration” and the more you do it, the more you will accomplish in your life. For instance, when I work, I know what music helps me focus the best and I play it when I write. I also know what to avoid, and so I follow that. If you know that you work best in the early morning and are your most creative, then by all means, keep that schedule and KEEP IT SACRED.

If you know that you feel lousy if you don’t take your medicine, THEN BY ALL MEANS KNOW THAT YOU ARE NUMBER ONE AND TAKE IT AND SET LOUD ALARMS SO YOU WON’T FORGET IT. I was constantly telling my clients this when I was helping those with epilepsy as the CEO/Founder of The Epilepsy Connection and also as the Director of The Epilepsy Foundation in Orange County. I would change lives just by telling them to invest in a simple alarm watch!

Here is a model for creating balance in your life and I am going to do this right along with you this week!

Divide this into hour blocks and then you can see how much of each you are getting.

Work-6 hours-especially if you do computer work-so you don’t get carpel tunnel or arthritis!

Play/Things That Give You Joy-Preferably One Hour Minimum

Exercise-30 minutes minimum

Spiritual/Meditation-30 minutes minimumImage

Another Year Another Chance to Reach Your Goals and Realize Your Dreams

There are so many reasons to look back at 2012 and be thankful for what I have in spite of losing my father, who battled with congestive heart failure for many years and ended up a totally disable man. I know his prayers of “not being in misery any more” when he passed away in September 2012.

TheSimplestThingsCanBringTheMostJoy11.5.09

I still have my dear mother Ramona who encouraged me to follow my dreams, read to me when I was 4 years old, taught me phonetics and how to read any book and sound out the words, not needing kindergarten being totally ready for second grade.

Creativity was encouraged in my household when I was a kid and I think above all things they gave me the ability to think creatively and do what had never been done. Every night at the dinner table dad would ask every body, “What did you learn today”, and we would go around the dinner table, which was a painted picnic table.

Everybody would answer and we always would feel better, learn something and realize what the meaning of “family” was all about. My Nanny, my dad’s mother, was of course alive then too, and resounded honesty, integrity even more than my parents almost did and her very blunt way, is what I grew up with and what people respect most about me now.

EveryTimeYouSubtractSomethingNegativeYouMakeRoomForPositive12.2012

What are your goals for this year?

What steps can you do every day to see you achieve them?

I wish my family would read what I write because they would change their selfish attitudes about life and living and if only one of them would operate their life on a Triple Win mentality, meaning thinking about what would be good for all rather than the one-things would change radically for the better.

I can always hope they will. I have been actually communicating in a positive way with my brother in law who is power of attorney on my mother’s affairs. If he would give me an additional two months to live where I am living, in a house my mother is the sole owner on, I could get into a place that would be better for me. It would take until March 2013 to get the place I want. I am simple going to write him and explain why I need it and hopefully he and my sister will find a way to take care of mom until I am situated and get a place with the state funded disabled housing program I have been working within the confines in for the last year.

I am hoping that God looks kindly on me and for all the meals and good things I did for mom and dad while they were alive and living next to me, I am able to now live a life with dignity and integrity on my own.

IT is amazing how much more you can get with kindness, as my mother used to say.

I know there are simply two ways you can take to life. You can be good to others and treat them as you would want to be treated or you can not. I would rather do the “spread good around” philosophy than the other.

I do know we need more Disability Advocates because as it seems I am the only one I know of when I did that as the CEO Founder of The Epilepsy Connection helping people all over the world who had the invisible disorder for 6 years. I didn’t get paid a cent but was working on getting a501c3 tax status in 1997, and then my ex husband developed a temper that no kitchen remodel was going to get me to stay around for.

I hope all who read this take time to write something positive and let me know what you feel about the things I write.

God bless and I hope God will create some miracles in my life very soon in regards to my housing situation because I need them.

A Pot of Jasmine Pearl Tea Plus My Time Equals a New Cooking Site

a Pot of Jasmine Pearl Tea Plus My Time Equals a New Cooking Site

My latest web creation is called “Cooking Up a Storm With Miss Polly”, me being Miss Polly, my persona in the cooking world. Polly was always my nick name when I was a kid and it was more endearing than the formal full name I use for journalistic endeavors of “Paulette Le Pore Motzko.”

I created http://www.CookingUpaStormWithMissPolly.com to be a Web Cook Book of what will be my cook book entitled “Springboards For Your Imagination” by Paulette Le Pore Motzko that will hopefully be released by next year.

I have to figure out how to create the kind of very sophisticated index that will not only have the type of dish, but ingredients of the dish.
As the recipes are put in there they will be auto indexed so you can find what you want and see at a glance how many dishes on the site have that ingredient in it.

I am going to have to work with WordPress and Matthew La Miuex my amazing computer tech friend to see how my vision can become a reality, much as this site was once a dream, along with TotallyInspiredPC.Wordpress.com.

Take a look and subscribe to both of them. There is no greater praise when you are a writer.

It just goes to show that even on a jerky bus ride I can find the beautiful and magnificent.

“Eating is one thing we all have in common that we have to do, so it would only make sense to make preparing meals as enjoyable as possible,delicious and good for you to guarantee your good health. It is possible to have do all those things. A good meal doesn’t mean it has to be hard or take a long time to prepare. Some of the most simple things are the best.”
