Hope of the World

Minah Seo is a newfound friend and the wonderful lady who nominated me for the Liebster Award.
After reading all her wonderful posts on her very inspiring blog, I realized she has a true depth of character that is extraordinary. She has wisdom far beyond her years.
Since Totally Inspired Mind is read by 80 countries monthly now, can each one of my nearly 2000 followers stop over there and say something encouraging to Minaj Seo to let her know for sure prayers are heard by God, even when we feel alone. Help Mibah keep her spirits soaring like on the wings of an eagle.
Help her keep her hopes high up let her know prayers do come true. There are great people even in a turbulent world. Persistence pays off and those who don’t give up win.
I think Minh Seo has already won but she just don’t know it.
If she only knew the lives she inspires with her words.

Nobody has the right to play God or determine something like inferiority or to say that when life is less dignified and beautiful than the next. Life should be treated with respect, compassion, and dignity, no matter what kind of hand you’re dealt in this world.

Diagnosed with epilepsy at age nine and nearly died 5 times in my life. I don’t see the disability but the human being.

Quote of the Day From Sasha Sagan, Carl Sagan’s Daughter

This is part of an extraordinary essay written by Sasha Sagan, Carl Sagan’s daughter. In her very eloquent, extraordinary writing her brilliant parents passed on their intelligence to her as an everlasting gift.
She sees the world as I do- which is we are all connected on this planet, and what counts is the present, because that is all we are guaranteed. The more we work together to sustain THE EARTH, and preserve the oceans and allow it to flourish. . .instead of destroying it…the better we all will be….now and in the future.

Was married to a real rocket scientist 15 years.. enough to know every specialty of engineering and how we rely in science and technology for everything from the connections of our smart phones to weather reports to new medical breakthroughs in zero gravity.

From a book lover since age four, I couldn’t agree with Carl Sagan more!

Out of the clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

ALBERT EINSTEIN SAID THOSE VETY ENLIGYTENING WORDS…many years ago. If we repeat them, we can learn and grow and reevaluate our life and what we own.
Look around your home and where you live and ask yourself these questions:

Does this give me joy?

Do I need this?

How often do I use this?

Do I have a bunch of these? Or, could somebody I know better use this than me?
That’s the most one of the coolest questions to ask yourself.

Often we have so much clutter and chaos around our houses, apartments, and condos or whatever dwelling we live, that we can’t even find what we’re looking for.

The less we own the less we worry about.
The less we have to maintain, or pay someone to keep it up.

Simplicity creates clarity of mind and thought and that’s what I’m striving for in my new studio I’ve been setting up over the past few months.

image

I sold tons of furniture, consolidated and scaled back what was a very large place into a very small place or at least much smaller.

image

Like this oak hitch I sold to a nice family that loves refinishing furniture.

This Tiffany glass hanging will go in my window by my roll top desk, so when I write I can look out at something beautuful. It also gives me more privacy on my end from passers by…….

The hardest thing about living in the studio apartment is that your world is on display. There are no private places really, as I used to have. I used to have a big bedroom and shelves were hung that had some statues that were religious. AFTER moving here I sold my Lady of Fatima Virgin Mary that to a sweet lady who was chronically disabled who really wanted it. I felt she was meant to have it. She was selling hrr Tiffany glass hanging and we simply traded the window for my Lady of Fatima Virgin Mary and a 24 kt plated Lady of Guadalupe rosary I had. She prays on it and it gives her strength and solace, and it gives me joy to know that. I have a prettier view. That makes a nice trade off. (We met on a site calledOfferUp. It is a site I swear by and have furnished my place with amazing deals on it. I can a laboratory on those another time.

The large wooden virgin Mary my uncle Mervin gave me before he died of cancer is the one that smiles on me every day like a beacon of hope. When I went through very hard times she traveled with me to every hotel and looked out for me(with the multitude of prayers I said and the things I did to survive), and made sure that I had enough money to afford them all. My brother in law and sister threw me out of a property that I paid into for 15 years of my parent’s two and half years ago.

When I got to Vegas and finally got situated, after going through over 70 and apartments after having my social security lowered $200 here… I arrived to look in the three relocation cubes from UPACK, and finally found the Virgin Mary and I said thank God and I said we made it!

You see, unless you know what it is like to have no home you have no clue how almost sacred it is when you have your own. I am finally moving ahead again, because I am not having to operate on a emergency crisis mentality every day.
I had second stage hypertension going through all that, and now I am fine.

image
My size homemaker cutesy kitchen has been the biggest job to organize, and once I get a pot rack for the wall Bobby Flay and Emeril LaGasse pans will go up so I can grab them in a flash.

Everyday I ask for guidance to use all of the many abilities that God has given me: I love music of writing and cooking the marketing and photography in any way that I can.

I hope that this by me telling my story it helps my readers and viewers in the United States and Europe and my nearly 2000 followers….. in some way.

If you stay with anything long enough, and be persistent, you will achieve what you’re shooting for.

Don’t give up.

Learn everything you can but don’t ever give up.
Better yourself every day.

I’m sure some people in New York or other places live in smaller places but this is the smallest studio I’ve ever lived in, but as Mary Engelbreit says, “bloom where you’re planted”, and I am.

image

It works and I am determined to get as many ideas from YouTube on TV decorating and organizing shows, how to tap into awesome ideas to make every square foot here count.
Its not the size in a place that matters, but how you feel when youre there….how quiet it is, your neighbors, how close to bus lines & work, and other factors.

It has what I need its got enough room organization is key in a place like this it works I have it’s a combination office and living area and I never have to move very far to reach anything which is which is a good thing.

So as you look around your world today, look around and ask but I really need this how often am I used it? Will I use it?

Maybe donate some of the books you are through with, and don’t envision reading again , to the library like I did. They can use to this for the sale of the books in their Friends the Library for the upkeep if the library and to do maintenance for the library. You’ll help others with a book that you had that you did that you’re through with. I sold the gardening library and also another one Christmas Library just gave them donated you know to the library down the street from me cuz I love it the place where people are empowered knowledge’s found and I’m so happy I live walking distance from it. if you do any of the things that I’ve suggested here write about it tell others what you did and how you felt in your new surroundings and how much you helped you.

Have a fantastic day!

God wants to Speak Through You

May God Speak through Me by Abide Team at https://abide.is/prayer/kg6vll on #abideis

We all have the capacity to make a difference in the world.

You just have to think about what unique talents that you possess and what best ways you can use them.

As in the Bible passage, “make me an instrument of Your peace”-

You can be a lot more than that. How would you like to change a life forever?

How would you like to help someone?

Save someone’s life by simply caring about them?

Show a lost soul the way to a more hopeful parh?

Empower another?

Change someone forever?

You can do all those things and more… you just have to want to, and then ACT instead of think about it.

Make a list of things you can do for others in your neighborhood,  and then comment here and share one great thing you did for another.

Severely disabled man with over 25 serious conditions shares inspiring message: ‘I’m still loving life because it could always be worse’

Once in our lifetimes comes a courageous, strong, capable, disabled but able, hero like this young man. The next time you think of complaining about the food you have in your cupboard or fridge-how would you like to not taste at all?

I am awarding Mr. Peter Foster The Extraordinary Human Being Award….for illustrating a heroic and positive attitude amidst great adversity.

God bless you!

Here is a wallpaper I found on Zedge I love that I give to you because I think you embody the DNA of all these wonderful qualities.

80 countries read my blog after two years and I am disabled with an invisible neurological disorder called epilepsy.

image

SINCE I ALMOST DIED 5 times in my life….and am still here, I will always go up to a disabled person and say hello.

My best friends have always been disabled. I didn’t choose them for that reason. ..they were GREAT human beings with integrity and courage.

All those reading this -member to be kind to those who are different and always be grateful for what you have.

MY FIRST FRIEND WAS CHERYL LIGHT CAP WHO WAS BLIND. SHE DIDN’T JUDGE ME.

I DESCRIBED WHAT SHE COULDN’T SEE IN TECHNICOLOR DETAIL AND WAS HER EYES. She could feel the colors on my dress and was smart as a whip…..both of us.
Join his blog and spread the word to be kind.
I am so glad Mr. FOSTER HAD THE COURAGE TO COME FORWARD AND SHARE what he has been through. People like him have been given special gifts like an attitude that focuses on the good, the great and finds super-human endurance.

Little girl throws first pitch with UNLV engineered robotic hand – www.ktnv.com

http://www.jrn.com/ktnv/positively-lv/Little-girl-throws-first-pitch-with-UNLV-engineered-robotic-hand-297186441.html?lc=Smart

This story made my day. I want to go to UNLV and meet the extraordinary, triple win thinking, engineering students who created this sweet little girl’s new hand.
More people in the world should act when they know they can make a difference in someone’s life. These engineering students did!

Way to go UNLV.

I used to live in Winchester walking distance from UNLV, now I have my own place by CSN.

This is awesome.

We need more people who “come up to the plate” and change things just because they’re able to.

My best friend in Las Vegas came to my place last night and we had a dinner of Chicken Tortellini Soup and crackers and enjoyed some flan for dessert. He had brought his classical guitar and played some pieces he wrote; it was the first time I ever heard him play. It was as though a more relaxed, happy man stepped from his soul. ..and I was his lucky audience.

Early in the evening I was playing Billy Joel songs like “She’s Always a Woman”, “New York State of Mind”, “Allentown”, and “Baby Grand”…..one I could relate to we’ll. Music was my first best friend at nine years old, and it has been my best since. Finally after moving my rosewood upright grand from California to Nevada, I can enjoy it.

I know that every time I am with my friend Leo, it is as though time passes so quickly and we always have fun.

He always knows the right thing to say to cheer me up if I need it, and genuinely cares about me. You can’t ask for more than that from a friend, can you…..

I had fun singing some songs I wrote when I was in high school. What I realized was I spend tons of time typing on my phone or computer and not enough time turning the sound off on it and creating a new song or simply playing. I feel like I got ten years younger doing what we did together, and want to play together, create chord charts to my compositions and me play to his.

ALWAYS MAKE TIME FOR WHAT YOU LIVE FOR AND WHAT YOU LOVE.

God’s Plan For You

Plans For You – 5 by Joanna Quintrell at https://abide.is/prayer/bb7vu3 on #abideis

Any Christian can say this and meditate upon this. ABIDE is a free app that you can access from your smartphone.

Will all need to balance our spiritual life, no matter what situation you may be in.

Even if you’re a Buddhist, if you are Native American, if you are Jewish, if you are Pentecostal  if you are a Jehovah Witness, or you’re Mormon, Protestant or any other faith…… We all have many things in common…..

Will believe in a power greater than ourselves. We all had mothers and fathers- even if you never knew them and even if they put you up for adoption your mother still gave you life.

We all have known what it’s like to love and not be loved.

We know what it’s like to fail and we all know what it’s like to succeed.

We are all human beings and more alike than we all realize.

We weren’t created to be like each but we were created to appreciate and respect the differences in each other.

If the United  States government would think like that, we wouldn’t have wars and instead of guns with bullets, people would strive for understanding instead of killing whatever they didnt understand.

So take time to realize that the person you’re talking to may be different than you, but has their own story too.

They may not be as bad as you think they are.

If you have epilepsy like I do, and even though your medicine works most of time, but you’re not feeling that great because you overdid it -like I did today….
Say this prayer.

If you have cancer or some other life-threatening disease….say this prayer. You will find strength and hope.

If you have osteoarthritis or other crippling ailment…say this prayer.

If you have Alzheimer’s disease or any other didability- physical or hidden- say this very short inspiring prayer I found on the app ABIDE.

You will feel better and I hopr you find strength, as I did.

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of each. Grow green with the spring, yellow and ripe with autumn.

One of my favorite writers in the world is Henry David Thoreau. When I read his words in Honors English for the first time, and then read “Walden”, one of his most famous works, I knew his view of the world was very special.

When he wrote Walden he wrote it in a small cabin and purposely became a recluse, away from people, and wanted to connect with nature and hear it. He had no electricity and went back to simpler times. When the sun rose, he rose, and when it set, and darkness came, his day was done.

We all need time to connect with nature and hear the birds chirping and marvel at what God Created, instead of man.

As I say, “In solitude you can hear the angels speak. ”

The people who do the best a life adapt the best. They are not smartest, the tallest or the richest; they simply adapt to the present moment.

The world is full of lots of drug-addicted, unhappy people who are rich and have tons of money. They look to find their thrills and happiness in all the wrong places. When they should look within the simple things and within their soul to find it.
