How balanced is your life? By Paulette Le Pore Motzko

How balanced is your world?

Do you feel like you’re walking around like a chicken with its head cut off some of the time or do you have things pretty in control?

If you feel like the poor chicken then maybe it’s time that you sit down, and make a list of all the priorities in your life and how much you really want to devote to them individually.

This graph above I found on Pinterest call my look for who the author was who created it and I couldn’t find any names or website related to it.

There’s certain things that a good old-fashioned pen and paper really help with, and that is things like prioritizing. I know I’m a visual person, and it helps me to just see in front of me how much different aspects of my life mean to me to make sure that I’m devoting enough time to them. After all people make time for what matters to them don’t they? There’s something really matters to someone they will make time for it and if they don’t, they simply won’t.

You need to ask yourself… What would I really be sad about if I didn’t do 5 years from now?

What can you do now to make sure you do accomplish all the things you want and spend time with the people that you want to, and devote enough time for yourself?

There’s no time like the present to give yourself the gift of a life where you are true to yourself and your individual needs.

How regrets begin is by failing to do things that are really important to you now.

You can bypass regrets all together by simply preventing them by living a high-quality, rewarding and fulfilling life.

The Full Circle of Life by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Just like the shape of the Earth, we come full circle from birth, and as we learn and grow, in the many shapes of our life, we mature.

From baby to school days, than teenager and college days, we acquire knowledge, like strong bricks that creates a firm foundation and stability for us to stand on.

We hope to impart the best of ourselves for future Generations, as parents, teachers and mentors.

Then one very sad day, the parent is called to have a conversation with God that never ends, but l transcends their soul to the Summits of Immortality.

Smiling from heaven, looking down on their child, they passed their life force, love, passions and talents onward to all, as a gift to the world.

Their child then runs with all those living breathing qualities and then the cycle begins again without end.

Mom and I many years ago before God wanted to see her in heaven. The awesome times we had together will play like a technicolor movie in my mind for all time.

Paulette Motzko at The Springs Preserve: “Anyone’s life truly lived consists of work, Sunshine, exercise, soap, plenty of fresh air, and a happy contented spirit.” – Lillie Langtry

I absolutely love this quote quote that I found in a new book that I get lots of wisdom and inspiration from called “Daily Calm”: Photos and Wisdom to Soothe Your Spirit by Hallmark.

I truly must agree with Lillie Langtry because happy life is one that’s balanced, where you’re not doing any one thing for too long, but rather doing many things adding interest to your life.

For instance, I spent the afternoon at The Springs Preserve today and went to several new exhibits in which made it even more adventurous.

The beautiful, culturally- rich Origen Museum exhibits from Raytheon about math, virtual reality exhibits, and my favorite-arts and writing.

Some or the very awe inspiring views from every angle you’ll see at The Springs Preserve. So worth my $30 a year membership to be able to come here whenever I want free all year.

The weather was crisp and cool and I was wearing my Sketchers Gel Sole tennis shoes, which made climbing up the trails easy.

What did you do that was adventurous and involved work, sunshine some fresh air or you had a contented heart?

From CNN: CNN’s town hall ‘Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action’

These are not “kids” but brilliant, adults with maturity beyond their years through what they’ve gone through.

I am really proud of how they’ve confronted the political leaders and how they’ve demanded direct answers. In some cases they’re changing the minds of people who thought their minds were set about the gun laws that exist today. I’m happy that through this terrible tragedy- these strong and courageous students are going to change laws that needed changing for years.

Doing more extensive background checks and enabling the HIPA laws to divulge critical information they would tell whether someone’s unfit to possess a firearm is landmark.

Paulette Motzko shared “Your One Word” by Evan Carmichael from Google Play Books

Your One Word, Evan Carmichael.
https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=Yc–CwAAQBAJ

Do you know what your one word is that best describes what motivates you?

It’s a word that you have to do a lot of soul searching for. You have to just sit in a quiet place with no interruptions and just think about what word would best describes you and what you stand for, and what makes you feel rewarded when you do it.

But when you come up with it, it’s going to be your Guiding Light, so to speak, as my ultra positive, very smart buddy Evan Carmichael says.

Knowing your one most important word or motivation will help direct your path in your life and help you also say no to a lot of things that are not benefiting you or what your goals are.

I created a picture that’s on my desk that I look at everyday and my keyword is “empower”…. I took that very important action word and extrapolated and added a very important noun on the end of my one word and it reads “Empower Others”…

What is your one word?

If you had two words that are like your beacon in the night propelling you forward, what are your most important two words?

To play a song on an instrument fine tuned and evoke an emotion…is like bliss…to write with all your soul wrapped in words you hope nobody ever heard…

These were writing exercises from an app I tune into regularly called YourQuote. It helps me broaden my literary horizons.

I am up later than I wanted, but inspiration doesn’t wait. Ideas are like a butterfly in a meadow. They are so beautiful when you see their wings flit in the breeze, but all at once, they fly away. So are extraordinary ideas….elusive.
Be blessed wherever you are.

From CNN: Lincoln named best President. Here’s where Trump ranks.

Lincoln named best President. Here’s where Trump ranks.

I didn’t even have to read the story to know where Trump rates with most people which is last. In my opinion he’s a triple loser and I hope that our country can find a better leader in the very near future. – Paulette L. Motzko

From CNN: Remembering the victims of FL school shooting

My heart goes out to all the families who lost someone in the terrible shooting massacre.

I hadn’t listened to the news for 3 Days on purpose because I was working on other projects.

I’m a sensitive person and I really didn’t want to know what was going on. Sometimes ignirance is bliss when it comes to the kind of news Las Vegas reporters report.

When I turned on CNN today, and local news in Las Vegas and Fox News, there was a story about a young boy who saved a little girl’s life, which was a more uplifting story, those were a rarity today anyway.

Ater hearing about this very sad story, it saddend me greatly inside to hear of such loss of precious lives for nothing.

My condolences go out to all the families and everyone involved who lost someone in the latest tragedy.

I’m really tired of hearing about incidences like this; it’s getting really old and it’s a sad commentary on our country.

President Trump is not a good influence on our country and we’ve had more mass shootings in a short amount of time that I think we’ve ever had in history since he’s been president.

Correct me if I am wrong.

I know if we actually had a leader who acted like he cared about the United States and the people in it Americans would be more helpful.

I’m not saying the Trump is responsible for this shooting but he’s the instigator of most rallies most fights most anything that’s not good.

Americans at large would react differently and they would have more hope for the future too.

I pray all who lost children in this case know peace and find strength through their faiths.

The closest thing to the heart of God is helping hurting people. – Joel Osteen

I loved this quote so much. So many of the world’s most affluent could make a difference in the world’s poorest and underprivileged countries if they only wanted to and if they only thought about it. I wish more would think about it making a difference because the very small act of kindness could mean the world to someone else.

Good morning everyone! I hope you all have a phenomenal day Wherever You Are.

For some reason I can’t share on Spotify any longer it’s creating duplicates and generic errors on my blog post, so Life Goes On music will be listen to it’s just I can’t share the Spotify playlist items with you any longer, until I find out what’s going on with WordPress. It could be something with Spotify I don’t know it’s too hard to isolate.

What I do know is it was fun while it lasted and there are plenty of playlists and songs to serenade you on the site as it is. I had to delete post that were done yesterday from Spotify, which explains why you saw duplicates of some of them. Believe me, it surely wasn’t intentional!

After a nice long needed nap yesterday I was full of energy and wanted to go somewhere new. So I searched on the Foursquare app Mexican restaurants near me, and found the Bonito Michuacan Gourmet Restaurant, and didn’t realize it was really so close to me. It was a place that I’ve been wanting to go to since I moved to Las Vegas, and FourSquare marked it as a nice place for singles too with music.

I enjoyed the wonderful chile relleno-thst came home in a box, chicken enchilada and beef taco with beans and rice and a cool, cinnamon horchata. In the background I was serenaded with music from a guitar player named Umberto who was playing in the beautiful bar. I never thought I would describe a bar as beautiful but there’s was!

Me sitting in a beautiful, hand carved chair at the Lindo Michoacan Gourmet Restaurant last night.

I went never expecting I would meet someone really nice there who I felt understood and would appreciate me, but I did!

Thank you Lord for small and big miracles!

Forgiveness is setting the prisoner free and realizing that the prisoner was you. Joel Osteen

As I was reading this morning “Wake up to Hope Devotional” on Google Play Books, I ran onto this quote that I put in the title of this post that I wanted to share with all- of you my dedicated, wonderful readers and followers.

Below text by Paulette Motzko:

I hope that everything you do today works out just as you planned, and I hope that all the projects and dreams and aspirations that you have materialize everyday, just a little bit more like the facets in a diamond.

You may not know it, but everyday your life is transforming with every good thought, good action and good habit that you put into action like a sparkling diamond in a ring.

One day you wake up and realize that you Sparkle too!

Product review: Home Kitchen Stovetop Smokeless Grill. For $15 you can’t go wrong and it really works on gas or electric burners

This very reasonable smokeless grill it’s something I found is something that I found at one of those stores that has all the believe it or not as seen on TV stuff. And since I have been eating healthier and creating a brand new lifestyle over the last few years, I thought how wonderful it would be to be able to just cook lean chicken, fish, other lean meats as well as vegetable kabobs on top of this smokeless grill.

Guess what?

It works!

What you do is:

You simply add 1/2 cup of water to the reservoir underneath the grill grate, you can also add stock fruit juice or whatever you think might infuse your food with flavor.

All you do is simply brush the grill grate with oil and make sure you put the product on the smallest burner on your range, it has to go on the smallest burner. It fits around the burner.

Sometimes the simplest design is the best and the people that came up with this idea really did a nice job, so I thought I’d share it.

Here’s to the dreamers of the world. I finally saw the movie La La Land after hearing this song that MADE ME WANT TO SEE it. I also mirrored my Note 4 screen on my Smart TV

This movie was everything and more than I thought it would be and the dancing was extraordinary and the music and the story.

I thoroughly recommend seeing La La Land.

I found it on Amazon Prime video for a few dollars.

The best part is when I discovered how to mirror my screen on my Galaxy Note connecting it to my smart TV; I can now do photo editing on huge screen -which is awesome!

God bless all who read this and may you be blessed wherever you go and may everything you do be extraordinary and bless the world with your unique creations.
