Colin Powell’s Words of Wisdom

image
General Colin Powell…a guy I wish we had as President of The United States. I know he could have looked out for all Americans- rich, poor and the disabled. Now the very rich are looked after well in southern California, but we are badly in need of funding for disabled housing and bus systems.

I want to work to live in a community I can be proud of, where people care about one another again, and aren’t apathetic, walking over homeless in the street!

All text below quoted from the book by Colin Powell
My American Journey

The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, you associations will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don’t help you climb up will want you to crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you.
Consider this:

Never receive counsel from unproductive people. Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. Not everyone has a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person.
Don’t follow anyone who is not going anywhere.

With some people you spend an evening: with others, you invest it. Be careful where you stop for directions along the road of life. Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships. If you run with the wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn to soar to new heights.

“A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.”
The simple but true fact in life is that you become like those with whom you closely associate – for the good and the bad.

Note: Be not mistaken. This is applicable to family as well as friends. Yes…do love, appreciate and be thankful for your family, for they will always be your family no matter what, just know that they are human first and though they are family to you, they may be a friend to someone else and will fit somewhere in the criteria above.

“In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our Friends.”
“Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them.”
“If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters.
“Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.”

-Colin Powell

 

 

 

I found this on Facebook but this is quoted from “My American Journey” by General Colin Powell.

I bought the book at Barnes & Noble on April Fool’s Day after I got paid and some writing books I had on hold. My American Journey is fantastic and I wouldn’t have known about it if my friend Judith Salmon hadn’t quoted a part from it on Facebook!

Thanks Judith!

If you have a friend or family member who was epilepsy or seizures, let them know about this newsletter.

Information leads to a diagnosis.

A diagnosis leads to seizure management and control.

Seizure control leads to health and independence which leads to living life and life quality.

I should know. I had simple partial seizures since I was four years old. It wasn’t diagnosed until I was nine years old, due to me being not able to describe what I was going through.

Any of these things can cause seizures or a diagnosis of epilepsy:

High fever-

A blow on the head

Conculsions

A coma

Brain damage of any kind

I had all those happen to me and nearly died before my second birthday.

Early intervention and an agressive approach to finding seizure control is the answer.

See the best neurologist your insurance can afford.

Get an MRI, CT scan and EEG to show any abnormailty of brain waves, tumors etc…

Then you know what you’re dealing with and get help.

I wish health and peace to all who read this.

To be continued with the image of The Light of The World award my answers and choices for nominating others who I feel are also The Light of The World.
You might be chosen!

Acceptance if The Light of The World Award
Nominated by Amreen Bashir Shaikh
When Amreen told me she nominated me for The Light of The World Award, I was heart warmed. This one is especially meaningful because a year ago when I created Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate- I envisioned a site where the most inspiring, positive and enlightening articles would mingle with some of the most articulate, intelligent people, sharing their thoughts on us being connected as a unified whole, who just happen to look different.
Several awards later and 853 followers later, two thousand people read and view the site and it just keeps growing like a fragrant garden I sowed seeds for and prayed to be a good gardener.
I am so thankful to all my new found writer blogger photographer friends who regularly contribute to making Totally Inspired Mind great. I look the world over for great content in hopes I am offering something valid and worthy to the world.
This site, with the other blogs and sites I created, are my literary and photographic gift to the world and society. I hope to eventually have my more positive way of thinking to trickle over to our leaders in hopes they will think of the common good.
I say thank you for allowing me to touch your hearts, wake up your minds and warm your souls by my words.

Sometimes A Girl Just Wants To Wear Baggy Pants

I really enjoyed this piece by Veronica here. We need to make women realize the respect they have for themselves is radiated out to the world. It greatly concerns me more and more young women taking off their clothes on Facebook because they see mommy doing it.
Let us direct women of all ages they are to be loved just the way they are, like the Billy Joel song.

Standing ovation for this wonderful piece from my amazing friend who does a blog called Unshakable Hope on WordPress.com.
Maybe he would know a great device that accurately turns spoken text to type that costs little? Chances are he would!

If you or someone you know has epilepsy, just as I do- was finally diagnosed when I was nine years old, but at four years old my language abilities had were not sophisticated enough to describe what my simple partial seizures felt like, so they were misdiagnosed as a “tummy ache”. It was until I had my first complex partial seizure witnessed by my second grade teacher Mrs. Zubroad, that she knew what it was.

I then went to Palm Harbor Hospital in Garden Grove, Ca to be admitted for extensive diagnostic testing: EEG, CT scan etc that showed seizure activity in the temporal region. Hence the name temporal lobe epilepsy. What I had in Jan of 1971 was a complex partial seizure.

Little Polly playing the first song I wrote called “My Melody” on my dear Nanny’s Henry F. Miller piano she brought with her when she came to live with us. She was my best friend, heart game player, taught me to cook with mom, and play piano along with mom.

I would then try a medicine merry-go-round of side effect laden drugs that didn’t work. The side effects outweighed any benefits usually.

It wasn’t until I was fourteen years old that Tegretol was released, and I tried it as a test trial from a doctor by the name of Russell Steinburg at The Children’s Hospital in Orange. All of a sudden I knew health, feeling good, my attendance went up in high school and all the kids who made fun of me in elementary school wanted to “be my friend” but I had no desire to be theirs. After all, I was the same kid just older.  I was always worth being friends with.
Its too bad kids can be so ruthless in gradeschool. It is the kid that needs a friend most. I played on swings far away from the brats who called me names and played with cook books I carried in a pink book bag.

Now at fifty two years young I have my magic pill Vimpat by UCB that allows me to be seizure free. I have been on it not quite 3 years and take it with Tegretol as an adjunct drug.
I just need a housing voucher allowing me to pay $270 a month for rent. I am surviving on my meager $870 a month in ssi. If I had a place to live my upright grand would be in it and I could give piano lessons again as I did for twenty years.
I am losing money every month I am not given a voucher as I have a roll top desk, office chairs, library of books and a gourmet kitchen.

image

Once I get my voucher or Barbara Boxer, Feinstein, and Loretta Sanchez puts pressure on the Fed Goverment to give me one I can teach piano again, make money doing what I love. I called Loretta Sanchez’s office yesterday. I am not giving up. I have the abilities to earn tons of money one day once someone believes in me. Now I need a sacred safe place of my own and I don’t have that.

Who would have guessed those cookbooks I read sitting on a pic nic bench while the kids played would have me create two cooking sites and people all over the world would make recipes I created?
Mama knew.
She always said “you broke the mold”.

Me Paulette Le Pore Motzko on my thirty third birthday…..kidding! Let’s try 52cnd August 31st, 2013. My friend Candy had just given me the beautiful necklace & earrings. She and her husband are deaf and I know how to speak American sign language. I learned at Goldenwest College years ago.

I was the director of The Epilepsy Foundation’s subaffiliate in Orange County for a year. I produced the first public service announcement I had seen ever and it aired on Orange County NewsChannel 200 times in two weeks. I was the first time ever at The Ability Expo and people came from all over the USA to shake my hand and tell me it was an honor to meet me and thanked me for the help I gave them.

The EFA decided to fire me with a Fed Ex letter stating I was helping too many people! I opened the letter at a support group I hosted and everyone was horrified.

I then created The Epilepsy Connection and helped about 300 people in Orange, Riverside and LA counties.

I created this newsletter because I had never seen anything like it created and knew I could make a valid contribution to society with it.

In my late thirties I was diagnosed myself by reading and relentlessly searching on the net the words hormones, seizures and women. Up popped up what I had since I was 9 years old-hormally aggravated seizures or catamenial epilepsy. I was on a quest for the cure.

I was having upwards of 50 simple partials in my late 30s and was deemed intractable. I even had a red scooter designed with a twenty mile radius with a seizure abort button that would stop the scooter.
Martha Morell from Stanford. University stated in her findings that women who go through menopause with catamenial epilepsy had a high per centage chance of being seizure. I prayed to go through menopause and did in 2001 and Dr. Nancy Towbin at St. Jude Medical Center tied my tubes, left my ovaries so I wouldn’t need hormone replacement, and took out my womb-eliminating the risk of cervical cancer. She did this without making one incision on me, all lasers. Not one scar. I was a different woman afterwards. No periods therefore no progesterone drops, which is what takes place when a woman ovulates. Remove the period no hormone fluctuations and no seizures.
I am telling my story, which I must admit reads better than I even remember.

I will show this to Alta Med and Dr. Choi and Dr. Truang who stated they couldn’t write a statement saying I had epilepsy for more than eighteen years, that they didn’t believe any of what I said. I told them that was rediculous and I need a new doctor who valued a patient doctor relationship which is based on trust and honesty.

Monday, Mar. 24, 2014 – Ramona’s Alzheimer’s Disease Daily

http://paper.li/PollyMotzko/1356862348?edition_id=984a25e0-b33d-11e3-a986-00259071bfed&utm_campaign=paper_sub&utm_medium=email&utm_source=subscription

I am still trying to find the location of my sweet dear mother Ramona Le Pore due to criminal actions not disclosing her whereabout, not allowing phonecalls between the two of us, which is animalistic on the power of attorney’s behalf…especially considering I – Paulette Le Pore Motzko helped pay my parent’s mortgage while my dad was alive- from 2001 to when Mike & Brenda Bunker of Moreno Valley, Ca unjustly evicted me from my home I lived in for thirteen years!

I have made numerous complaints to the Moreno Valley Police Dept., who have been useless in fining Bunker or even calling him and demanding to know where the mysterious senior home mom, now 83 in June, was placed in for her very advanced Alzheimer’s disease.

Without mom I wouldn’t be the person I turned out to be. I owe it to her most of the talents I possess and the fact I have remained true to my values and integrity.

She is worth fighting for.

I have missed a year of her life and pray she will remember me when she sees me again.

I will be contacting the Orange County Register and Alzheimer’s Association to help me fight for mom’s rights and mine both.

Any information you can give, please do.

We have to keep reinventing ourselves almost every minute because the world can change in an instant, and there’s no time for looking back. Sometimes the changes are forced on us, sometimes they happen by accident, and we make the most of them. We have to constantly come up with new ways to fix ourselves. So we change, we adapt, we create new versions of ourselves. We just need to be sure that this one is an improvement over the last.

We Are All The Same At Our Core- A Visualization by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Maximize your abilities and down play your disabilities in every way you can.

Picture yourself as sure of yourself as the sea in her glory.

Everybody on earth has more in common with one another than you might guess. We all have or had parents-good ones, bad ones or if you were adopted you may have two sets of parents.
We all have loved at one time or another and lost that love,
We all have struggles, some we have overcome and others we’re in the process of overcoming.
We have disabilities be it physical ones or invisible ones like me-having epilepsy and now a temporary one, a fractured wrist.

I have always known I wasn’t supposed to have died the four times I nearly did and God spared me for a reason. It wasn’t until seeing Dr. William Sutherling at The Brain Mapping Center in Los Angeles, one of the best epiliptologists I ever saw in my life. He explained after dozens of scalpel happy neurosurgeons wanted to operate on me. He gave me eleven drug choices other than surgery and explained why he wouldn’t touch one inch of my brain. The damage was microscopic and to over compensate my temporal region of my brain grew larger than ordinary which explains my photographic memory, vivid memories and excellent language abilities. He made it all make sense and made me realize how blessed I was, even in spite of having epilepsy.

We all have to evaluate our blessings from time to time and really think about what they are, especially if we have been known to muddle through life, without giving a thought to such things.
Now, with the sun’s rising, I have burned the midnight oil all night, and I am finally getting a good clip with my one hand and am rather impressed with myself, so much so I want to take a timed writing to test my speed out! Just in time to the beat of the beautiful orchestral song on my iPod. Intermezzo Sinfonico by the great Andre’ Rieu and his orchestra.

THAT BRINGS US TO THE VISUALIZATION…

Picture yourself as though you were the best view of the sea your mind’s eye can muster up. Got it?
Can you see the view in your mind?

See how the WAVES CRASH ON THE ROCKS AND AGAINST THE CLIFFS, AS IN LAGUNA BEACH…

The rocks that the sea slams against are like your values, what you believe in life. Notice how no matter how choppy the waves are and how the sea ravages the rocks the rocks stay strong?

That is what I have had to do through my life so I could be true to my word.
Now picture a sandy beach with pristine sand….

Can you see that now in your mind’s eye?

See how microscopic the grains of sand are to your eye…you only see a beautiful beach that is in a place you love and look forward to go and enjoy.

Much is like our disabilities; see them as particles of sand that compose a beautiful you.
When I look at someone, I look at the whole person, not part of them.

Sometimes a disability can make you a great human being. All the disabled people I have known through my life have taught me so much and I am better because I knew them than before.

We all have flaws. Nobody is perfect, so step off your pedestal and give others less fortunate a chance if you’ve passed them by because they were different than you. At our core we are all the same-human beings.

Looking For a Probate Lawyer Who Will Help Me Live in Dignity and Peace

AFTER FINISHING A BEAUTIFUL VISUALIZATION AND HAVING IT NOT UPLOAD TO THE SITE, REMAINING A DRAFT WHILE OTHER PEOPLE’S ARTICLES AND CONTENT POSTED FINE-I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS, BUT IT IS MOMENTS LIKE THAT WHICH DIFFERENTIATE A WRITER WITH A VISION TO SEE REALIZED THAT KEEPS ME PLINKING AWAY WITH ONE HAND.

THE INJURY TO MY ULNA IN MY WRIST AND HAND HAS BEEN THE WORST, MOST PHYSICALLY CRIPPLING THING I HAVE DEALT WITH ON A MOMENT TO MOMENT BASIS, CONSTANTLY ADAPTING HOW I DO THINGS.

image

My fingers. wrist and forearm in a fiberglass stint

PATIENCE IS REQUIRED IN MOUNTAINS NOT JUST BUCKET FULLS AND I AM TRYING TO FORGET ABOUT THE WEEKS I SPENT TRAINING THE STUPID VOICE ACTIVATION PROGRAM NUANCE DRAGON, HAVING IT BE A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND A PIECE OF JUNK THAT NOT ONLY COULDN’T GET ONE SENTENCE RIGHT, BUT ADDED WORDS OF ITS OWN I NEVER SAID! MY ADVICE IS WAIT UNTIL GOOGLE COMES OUT WITH ONE. THE VOCAL SEARCH APP ON MY ANDROID PHONE IS USUALLY DEAD ON ACCURATE. THAT IS VOCAL RECOGNITION AT ITS BEST. DRAGON BY NUANCE IS MISLEADING AND NOWHERE CLOSE TO THEIR CLAIM OF “99% ACCURATE OUT OF THE BOX”.

I had written a beautiful visualization that was mysteriously not posting on Totally Inspired Mind. Try as I might the thing would simply not post while other people’s content taken from the reader did post! Then it wasn’t there at all, not even as a draft or unpublished or trash by accident…just gone! So much for talk of accidents, adapting and my frustrations from going from typing 80 w.p.m. typing full streams on concepts like air to plinking away with one hand pressing all the keys instead of half. I hope I don’t unlearn the right way going through all this! Look for it in the next post.

The stint in my forearm has fiberglass supports to force my wrist and hand not to bend and move. It is covered with bandages and feels like I am wearing a big, bulky kitchen mitt with a flat steel plate where my fingers go! My thumb creeps out the side of it, and thank God it does because it allows me add web content, pressing the shift key and holding the other side of the towel when I am drying off!

This one is nothing, compared to the L shaped one called a “sweet tongue” a goof of a doctor put on me, that had my arm bent in an L shape. It hurt the bruise I still have from my wrist to elbow, so I went to another hospital and had it removed. Everyone agreed it was overkill & rediculous.

image

I know I am supposed to say God is putting me through this to see how strong I am, but I didn’t need validation there.

I feel in many respects, over the last two years I have walked through a ring of fire and come out the other side alive and well, but I could have done without being thrown on a street after helping pay my parent’s house payment since 2001-by siblings with no moral conscious for either myself or my mother with Alzheimer’s disease I made great sacrifices for, but who had no role in the decision of evicting me last April Fool’s Day 2013.

image

Mom is in black and white stills and mine are in color.
We look so much alike, when I miss mom, I just remember the great times we had, the meals I cooked for her and I guess it was worth it. A boot out the door was a hell of a way to repay me though. It defies logic.

It will be one year next month that I became to my dismay an intelligent displaced disabled lady with no real place that is mine or is truly home with my personal possessions around me. I have been staying with a friend the last year.

I will be taking some legal measures to get what was mom and mine and nobody else’s and seeing that justice is served and I can once again know what peace of mind is.

I usually in the past, before my accident, created Word docs for everything that went up on any of my ten web sites.

I didn’t do that this time, and of course that had to be the time what I was writing vanished as mysteriously as Amelia Earhart vanished from site, with no trace.

I remember what I said and what it was about, the metaphors I used and the since I created it once, I shall create it again because I truly think it would help people think of themselves in a new, fresh way.

I hope you enjoy this and I hope it helps especially people with disabilities and many struggles or less than perfect lives, see themselves in a more positive way.
Created with all the love in the world, from the deepest caverns of my soul for the world to be enlightened and helped by.

Sincerely,

Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Look for the visualization exercise in the next post. It will be more uplifting than this one,
I am still alive and have all the integrity and intelligence I began with. Maybe I feel ravaged as though I have been eaten up and spit out by the world and the family that was at one time a good one until greed grew devil’s horns on all of their heads at the thought of taking their share of the $460,000 profit from the house mom and I used to live in.
Who could be so callous and apathetic to do this to a mother and her youngest daughter-me?
The evil brother-in-law made power of attorney by my dad before he died. Mike Bunker is his name and my sister Brenda Bunker is no prize either. Triple win mentality is not in their mindset, but rather triple losers. They took one precious year from me and they took a year of enjoying my mother away from me too. Why can’t the police find out where my mother is anyhow I ask. Bunker has kidnapped her in way by not allowing phone calls in or out so he took all communication from us.

He will pay for what he did in dollars and cents and possibly in prison if he used my dad’s bank CARD FOR A FAMILY MEETING AT THE HYATT REGENCY ON HIS BIRTHDAY.
I WOULD HAVE COME FORWARD SOONER BUT I HAVE HAD HEALTH PROBLEMS AND TAKING CARE OF MYSELF, MY MIND, KEEPING BALANCED WHILE GOING THROUGH A LITERAL HELL HAS TAKEN ALL THE STRENGTH I CAN MUSTER EACH DAY.
I KNOW IT WON’T BE MUCH LONGER THAT I WILL BE WONDERING, AS I AM GOING TO CALL THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY WHO WILL PUT AN END TO THE EXPLOITATION OF MY PARENTS AND MOM WHO CANNOT SPEAK FOR HERSELF ANY LONGER, DUE TO THE SEVERITY OF HER ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE.
IF ANYONE KNOWS A GOOD LAWYER WHO WONT TAKE A DIME FROM ME UNTIL I GET WHAT I AM OWED, LET ME KNOW.
I am each day visualizing Bunker chastised by a judge that says “what made you think it was right not telling your sister-in-law where her mother was?”
or “Let me get this right…you did not give Ramona Le Pore any choice in the matter and took her from her home one night, did not leave a note, making Paulette Motzko file a missing person’s report?”
What a guy, what a piece of work and pathetic jerk. There I said it. If I said anything other than that something would be wrong with me.

Wish me blessings of health, peace, wealth, a happy home with all my things together again, my office and books, gourmet kitchen and assorted things I see all the time and have to reply, “I have one in storage.”

New Drug Is Shown To Cure Blindness

I hope scientists perfect this so the blind will be able to see. This is news and landmark in the medical and scientific world. We have the intelligence to cure things like cancer, Alzheimer@s disease and even epilepsy. We need to place importance on finding cures for these ever prevalent ailments first.

Study after study has documented that when women have the opportunity to start businesses, own land, and receive credit…entire economies expand. – Hilary Clinton

Women have come a long way since the 60’s when I was a kid and they were still making and pouring coffee for their overpaid male bosses. That used to be written into job descriptions, but now women are making headway in what used to be male dominated fields like engineering, science and the medical fields.

In time I hope to see women get dollar for dollar the same pay for the same job. If they aren’t, it is a crime and just as unfair as being treated differently because of the color of one’s skin or what religious preference one believes.

I bet a woman will find the cure for cancer and I would love to see a woman president. Women give birth and tend to communicate rather than blow up chunks of a country killing children and mothers to hit one target.

The more chances a woman has to be educated, the more she will succeed in life in every way. Self esteem grows in direct proportion to education level too.

I don’t want to see any women have to be dependant on another for survival.
Being financially independent should be a goal of every woman and every parent should teach their daughters they can do anything they aspire to.

Doing the best we can with what we got

From Mark Martinez this true story about the warm people he came in contact with in Pulaski, Virginia and things he learned. Thanks Mark for making us realize there are plenty of good hearted folks still alive and kicking in the world, in spite of what the news prints.
I visited Virginia years ago during the autumn season and I will never forget how the hills were ablaze with colored leaves and the white church with a steeple that looked like a Currier & Ives photo.

What can we do as a society to see the disabled community all can live in dignity? Today in March 2014 that is far from the case. It urkes me when I see how apathetic we have become walking around homeless people on ssi or ssdi who simply get below poverty wage and cannot afford a place to live, or even a room to rent because that equates to their entire monthly check.

I am working with law makers now to funnel more money to the hud housing program so the voucher system will again allow people on subsidized incomes, as I am, to get subsidized rent.
One without the other is a disabled program as hud is now.

Let your reality check bounce …

Here is an awesome article from my friend Susan Lattwain about change and us having the potential to change our realities as well as other people’s too. Don’t be afraid to be a leader and be the one who came forward with something better than anyone has thought of. It all begins with one great idea.
