There will be so many bridges to cross in my life time but I will keep walking up with strength and courage until I make the other side.
There will be so many goals to achieve until the vision in my mind matches the vision in life I live.
Every day I will mentor others to make their path easier because I have already learned how to make their journey easier.
There will be knowledge to learn hiding in every opportunity and experience I live, as long as my eyes can see “outside the box” to recognize one.
I see stories in every event, interviews in every extraordinary person, travel journals in scenic places and I will look at the world through the eyes of a Nikon camera.
Photographs I take become a storyboard for something greater than the photo itself and for Pictorials and advertisements for successful companies.
I want to never lose the wonder and magic living and of being receptive to sounds and music of life.
In every person I meet there are gifts of wisdom, talents shared, books read to take note of, lessons learned and bonds of souls and minds waiting.
Everyone is a stranger until you say the magic word “hello” then that is the open door to become something more.
If you told me when I read the cook books of my mother’s and made dishes of my father’s I would one day create two cooking web sites and every dish I created would be seen, shared and enjoyed by people all over the world-I wouldn’t have believed you-but I did and they are.
A year ago needed a platform so I could write about topics that mattered to me such as civil rights, disabled people, positivity, creativity, spirituality, the homelessness epidemic, the misuse of the budget in America by our leaders, and how we all can make a difference in our communities, in our cities, in our schools and in our homes-and how we are all connected on the planet earth, no matter what race, color or creed-and if you had told me it would be called “Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate”-but it is and between 20 to 70 countries in a month believe what I write is worth reading and the stories and photos I choose have great merit.
When you discover your talents and devote enough self-introspection to reveal your genuine passions and things that make you “tick” like a clock or that make your soul smile-you have the magic ticket to how to never “work” another day in your life and instead, earn money doing what you love.
My credo is to maximize each talent and learn as much as possible about it and immerse your mind like a tea bag in steeping to make a pot of tea. Associate with only the best people who have the highest moral standards and philosophies.
Accentuate the positive while ignoring the negative and destructive and abusive and you will paint your life just like Vincent Van Gogh painted his famous sunflowers in French Impressionistic style.
When you take the time to “invest in yourself” and in truly being your best friend, the world will play a symphony and you will be in-sync and living will feel natural.
There will never be a perfect time to do what you have longed to do, so do it!
You are the only one you need persmission from to follow your dreams and persue what you have always wanted.
With persistence and determination your present will keep giving “presents” of joy, growth, breadth and understanding, knowledge, and so many more small and large gifts when you expand your view of what you know to something greater than yourself.
And until my goals are achieved I will do my best, strive for the best, associate with the best, not give up, not back down and enjoy my life and what I have and enjoy my friends and family-
