Watch “This Will Leave You Speechless! – with Commentary from Paulette Motzko on the Quality of Life

I have written countless articles on TotallyInspiredMind.com here about all the benefits of unplugging yourself from your smart device and simply living.

Self-Portrait image below photographed & created by Paulette L. Motzko.

When you pay attention to the world around you and the people you live with, extraordinary things happen because you don’t miss anything.

You live a better quality life.

If we don’t watch out, we can become robots ourselves who are responding in an almost automated fashion turning on a cell phone immediately and never putting it down.

For instance, read to your children when they’re young, let them learn to use their imagination and screen with they see.

Not all information on the Internet is good information or even useful or should be seen.

There are plenty of imbeciles with video cameras taking pictures of God knows what on the net, but you don’t have to be the one watching it!

Spend family bonding time. Yes, good old-fashioned family bonding where you’re reading books with them, teaching them phonetics and becoming part of the story. The more you read your child, the more words he or she will learn, the more exposed to new ideas and the better speaker they will become. The better command of the English language they will develop, including building their vocabulary and their confidence with it.

What does all that do to a child? It helps them get better jobs and it helps them be some more successful in life and a cell phone will never teach that.

On one of the self-empowerment videos I remember someone saying that poor people have huge TVs and rich people have a lot of books and that is so true. You cannot even put a price on education or knowledge and what it does for your life in terms of enlightenment and making you aware of all of your opportunities and hidden potential.

I do have a cell phone and I use it for many things I do, but thank God, not everything I do.

I think my Note 4 and Stylo 2 are both extraordinary devices, but I’m smart enough to also turn it all off too. After all, that’s what they make voicemail for., right?

I was born in the 60s before cell phones were even thought of or even computers. I’ve seen the technological advances blossom right before my eyes through the decades.

My favorite communication style will always be voice to voice or face to face.

There are many things that are far more effective to do the old-fashioned way then the new tech crazed way.

The next time around the people you care about, turn everything off and really pay attention to what they’re saying, look at them in the eyes. They deserve that, just as you would want that.

Being preoccupied with gadgets only makes you short-sighted, and if you become addicted to them, you’ll never truly pay attention to anything.

If you notice your attention span fails, it’s because you never focus on any one thing long enough to really absorb it.

You may be one of the lucky ones, who is smart enough to distance yourself from too much sensationalism and from getting wrapped into being addicted to networking sites. I’m on them and I use them but They Don’t Own Me.

Moderation and everything is what you want to do in life, including networking sites mainly Facebook and Twitter.

I didn’t know I was going to write this this evening, but then again I haven’t seen the video yet until playing at home.

We have one chance in life so pay attention to the people who are closest to you. One day they will be gone just like both of my parents are in heaven together with God.

Your children will one day grow up when they will move out and get married. What have you given them in terms of education and insight and then your intellect and what you’ve learned? Can you say it’s all good? If not, you still have a chance to change that.

People first thing second my parents always taught me. . It’s a shame that my siblings didn’t remember that after my dad died with the decisions they made.

Those you hold dear will only come around once and so will life and living. Live it truly and fully, with all the Gusto you have in your heart and soul and be true to yourself and what you believe even if you were the only one who believes what you do.

Create balance in your life and turn off your cell phone and everything with it for several hours a day at least and start doing other projects that you might not have otherwise. Consider getting off Facebook and Twitter, then you’ll determine what are you addicted to it. I got up both of them in my phone last a lot longer than it used to and I get no interruptions for stupid garbage anymore period and out of 10 years of being having friends on Facebook only a handful wanted to share their cell phone number! So they really were friends at all!

But my whole purpose in life wasn’t to have a thousand Facebook friends, which I did, but for that investment I put in them and how kind I was to them only if you remain with me having their personal phone numbers to this day. I’m all for being authentic and quantity is never what you want in a friend you want the quality to be Paramount.

I uninstalled the Facebook app several months ago and I’ve accomplished more in less time than ever before without distractions and the distractions I am so happy I’m not getting anymore. I also don’t have Mike Zuckerberg and his people trying to get $5 off of me every time I wanted to post a picture!

It was like a breath of fresh air and uninstalling the messenger Facebook because now I don’t I don’t have to put up with a bunch of people saying “what’s up” all day. What’s up will never be the way I open a sentence as long as I live. I will always have something valid to say to somebody I won’t say anything at all.

Messenger was never my idea of a quality conversation anyway.

Time is the most valuable thing that you’ll ever have in your entire life along with your reputation and integrity and the attitude that you carry. Those are my words remember them always as I say them with love at 56 years young.

Use fear and desire to help you and fuel you to make money. Don’t be governed by greed. Most people use fear and ignorance against themselves.

Fear and ignorance are the two causes of the lack of money. Self-inflicted fear and ignorance keep people living beneath them and trapped.

Fear pushes you out the door and desire calls to you.

It’s not how much money you make but how much money you keep.

If you want to be rich you have to be financially literate.

Paraphrased by Paulette L. Motzko from Robert T Kiyosaki’s book “Rich Dad Poor Dad.”

Thriving Thursdays: Share your Thriving Stories & What’s Working in Your Life in the Comments on TotallyInspiredMind.com

In life I go by a simple Creed which is:

Do what works over and over again.

After all, Einstein said “doing the same thing that doesn’t work over and over is called insanity.”

For instance, don’t keep calling people who don’t call you back, that’s like banging your head against a brick wall.

Some people are like brick walls. They have no brains or minds, or at least they don’t use them, and no matter what you say to them they don’t absorb anything you say because their intelligence level is so beneath you that you’d have to recreate them.

They probably will never understand.

For instance, I was in an accident on the 5th of this month, which is why I didn’t write the “Serene Sunday” feature that I always do.

When I was going through civil attorneys to sue RTC which involves suing the state because I was injured on my back now has a contusion it’s now healing in my left leg is slightly injured, I had to explain to a few civil lawyers that my rights were violated and that RTC turned me down for Paratransit and said that epilepsy wasn’t a disability even though I was diagnosed at age 9 I’ve been taking medicine since I was 9 years old and have nearly died 5 times in my life and I used to be in a wheelchair I’ve been seeing Specialists of the best caliber since I was 9. But I wasn’t disabled enough. What the heck does that mean and what idiot said that? Dan Howland, the president of RTC Paratransit said that because he said before I took the test he didn’t have to care about people with epilepsy he just had to do his job. Really now.

At the time I had a doctor’s letter from one of the only promenent neurologists in the state of Nevada. RTC play God when they had no right to because I broke my ankle after that and was nearly in a power chair. That ain’t cool no has arthritis not bitching but that is true none of that should have happened had they been intelligent and compassionate and understood that there are more kinds of disabilities in the world and people in wheelchairs.

So I can’t tell you what the cuss words were that I said to the jackass on the phone, but they were more than “jackass”. oh yes, I said what do you have blank for brains? And the guy hung up on me thank you.

California is known for its a d a law non-smoking you name it is just a better overall place to live in terms of sophistication and intelligence and the Arts. But it won’t pay my rent with my SSI check like this dust heap of a state will.

I’ve always had paratransit since my near fatal car accident that miraculously didn’t kill me 25 years ago.

I made it out with a jaws of life basically with all my neighbors in Huntington Beach applauding and with me saying thank God I didn’t injure anybody and thank God I was okay And thirdly I’ll never do that again!

So what redneck imbecile who doesn’t understand about neurological disorders had the audacity to write I wasn’t disabled enough after the doctor mandated it in a letter and basically ordered them to give me Paratransit or it would put me at great risk in the heat.

And that it did on the 5th of this month when I had a drop seizure in hundred and three degree heat after walking four and a half miles with my Skechers gel soles taking buses and walking all over the place with my hand cart.

Fortunately a Good Samaritan found me laying on the sidewalk, with my hand cart next to me put up my tablet my computer and it.

I was also grateful no one stole my computer or my tablet or anything with it because in my town people would be more apt to leave me laying there and go steal the hand cart that’s Las Vegas for you!

Ktnv News already expressed interest in doing my story and I’m going to let him run with it and so did Ksnv News and I’m going to call every other station I can and let them see this story I just wrote.

I’ll just send them the link to it my words and true tragic story will do the rest. Humiliation and public demoralisation on national TV has a good way of making RTC realize the damage that they did and realize they had no right to allow me to ever have multiple injuries which is what RTC did.

I’m nobody’s victim never have been and never will be.

After hearing that I had arthritis in the ankle I broke due to not getting Paratransit a couple months ago and after seeing Paratransit bus pick my blind neighbor up right across the street everyday that should be picking me up too.

I will be suing for 50 million dollars for my lost freedom of which you cannot put a price on.

I’m also suing for lost wages of which just this year alone for 20 jobs I had to say no to because I couldn’t get down to the strip and many of them paid over $50,000 to $60,000 a year.

Now multiply that by 2014 to 2018.

Now take your average Lyft ride which is $7 One Way $14 which is the round trip and now multiply that x 365.

Those are some of the prices I had to pay for my freedom and I want every cent of that back in full.

Now add in the physical injuries and mental anguish and also putting my safety at risk by sitting next to drunks and Winos and Weirdos and goofballs who have done everything from touch me to nearly punch me because they were on drugs and I didn’t know it. after sitting next to the drunk drug-crazed weirdo

I took Lyft ever since because I’m a firm believer in that repeating the same mistake twice!

the state simply doesn’t care about much of anything and they don’t make the criminals pay for what they do which is why they do it.

On the upside, I’m looking to hire personal assistants who can drive me to the locations I will work at.

About 10 great friends that I thought were really great weren’t so great.

How are you doing is a very underused thing to ask a person.

I hope to be like Rosa Parks in the back of that bus, making history in the state of Nevada for all people with disabilities and all people who have epilepsy

Don’t waste your time with those kind of people and instead gravitate towards those who you have a deep understanding within a common kinship with and you don’t need to pay them something to do something for you or with you, and being around them is like a breath of fresh air.

In other words don’t force things in life.

What is supposed to happen simply will with no effort at all.

Learn from your mistakes and don’t ever repeat them again and problem-solve and figure out how you can do something new and different and actually spend the time thinking so you don’t make the same mistake again.

Refine your strategies all the time every day and adapt and be like a surfer on a wave in the ocean who balances his weight and his steps and his movements according to how big that wave is.

Life is like that.

We are like Surfers in the Ocean of Life that are Constantly Adapting and evolving, depending on what life throws at us.

From CNN: CNN’s Anthony Bourdain dead at 61

CNN’s Anthony Bourdain dead at 61.

God Rest Anthony Bourdain’s soul. I know he gave joy to countless people all over the world. I only wonder if he ever talk to anybody about his depression and the problems that he was going through.

If you know anyone who is suffering from any signs of depression or suicidal tendencies please urge them to get help immediately!

If we sincerely want Harmony, peace and joy in our lives, we can have them, we must be willing to do the work. We must make maintaining an awareness of our spiritual nature’s first in our lives. Our inner world is the architect of our external world. We don’t lose faith in the goodness of life because we become angry and depressed we become angry and depressed because we lose faith in the goodness of life. Susan L. Taylor

Discover new places. Try something new. Initiate a conversation. Give real compliments. Be loving and kind. Stay active. Read.

  • If you do these splendidly simple things daily, you will feel better.
  • You will expand your horizons.
  • You will broaden your scope of people and cultures and broaden your vocabulary when you read daily, preferably from more than one book.
  • You’ll make a lot of people happier just by the fact that you talked to them
  • You’ll never grow bored. You’ll make new friends in the process.
  • Walk every day in the sun if the sun is smiling on you, or indoors in a beautiful, interesting or exciting place.
  • Listen to your favorite playlist or listen to nothing but the wonderful sounds of life itself.
  • There’s so many benefits to taking a good walk that I can’t even name them all, but it’s not just physical. A good walk has innumerable psychological benefits, helps you get a great night’s sleep and just makes you feel better. Plus you might make a few friends along the way.

I hope some of you put these tips to use. It’s some of what I’ve learned that’s help me in my 56 years wisdom for living.

I walked about a mile today and captured these photos of these desert wildflowers by the store I was walking to I thought I’d share with you all.

Serene Sunday: June 3rd, 2018 Edition

What was the last thing that you did put a smile on your face that put a smile on your face and made you feel rewarded from deep within?

If nothing comes to your mind, then you might need to expand your horizons a little bit and go outside of your “comfort sphere” as I call it… and “Shuffle the Deck of your Life” and imagine it being a winning hand.

Explorer some places you never been just for the sake that you’ve never been there.

Maybe it’s time that you walk down paths never walked by you before, kind of like in the poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost.

“When we recognize the presence of Grace our life ceases to be a maze and becomes amazing.- The Grace Factor by Alan Cohen

I was reading my kindle version of The Grace Factor yesterday and writing down key quotes I could share with ALL Of You My nearly 3000 FOLLOWERS FROM 91 countries now.

I’ve been reading it using something called the Word Runner on it. It helps you read whatever you’re reading sentence by sentence word by word, but you choose how fast you read but hitting a slider on it. The beauty of it is you will move through but you won’t get lost in the book like I sometimes do.

I think it would help someone who is dyslexic or has difficulty reading.

I’ve never seen on anything other than the Amazon Kindle product, and I pretty much I think have every for my book there is in my Note 4 installed.

The Kindle product also has the most realistic-looking color magazine I’ve ever seen where when you turn the page is it actually looks like the pages are turning.

I highly recommend The Grace Factor for anybody who wants to enjoy life in a more deep way and look at the world through new, more loving eyes.

I hope I am in touch with Alan Cohen because I read from Handle With Prayer” every day. Is golden words that become a kind of mantra that sets the “sail of my ship” to direct it to new, more positive paths.

Before I finish this post, here’s another quote from The Grace Factor by Alan Cohen.

“Kindness melts the wall of loneliness, and separateness is suspended in the presence of love.”
