Life before cell phones: Do you remember a time when you looked into someone’s eyes when you spoke to them? Do you remember when you had a real up close, memorable, enjoyable conversation?

Turn your phone off and turn on and tune in to life! It’s not too late!

2 p.m.

When you’re over 50 years old as I admit I am, you become a walking piece of History.

I remember Walter Cronkite’s telecast on Channel 2 News on a black tube TV when I was a kid announcing the first lunar Landing.

I remember looking up things in the library system and using the Dewey Decimal System.

Are there any kids today that would know how to look something up in the library in the Dewey Decimal System?

If they had to do a research paper to get a Ph.d would they know how to do it? Or would they just sit there talking into Google all day?

Did you ever think that in the time that you told all your friends what you’re doing on Facebook you could have done something really cool instead?

When I was in high school I looked up things quite often in the Encyclopedia Britannica, and I always found the information I needed, with the help of some great, extraordinary Librarians with Master’s degrees in Library Science, rather than using my Vocal Search that I use daily on my Galaxy Note 4 phablet.

Technology has its place and the incredible technologies we possess enable to do things faster than we ever dreamed and information is accessed at a rate that is almost abnormal.

Instead of parents reading to their children, teaching them phonetics as my mom did me, and exposing them to reading books, and exposing them to new ideas and helping them become more well-rounded human beings, quite often a parent in 2018 will stick a smartphone in the kids hands at an unusually early age.

Unfortunately this doesn’t give any kind of bonding at all for the child and the parent gets an easy time out but the child is greatly deprived of the kind of attention that old-school parenting and reading and nurturing gives.

I see babies in strollers basically raised by apps or babysitters and not by the parent learning any kind of language skills whatsoever which is really sad and pathetic compared to what it used to be. The sad thing is the kind of talking I hear a lot of parents say is simply “shut up” so you wonder where the kid turns out to be a real loser later in life if he doesn’t have any positive role models to encourage him or her.

Watch what you say around children because they absorb it like a sponge and they will live up to your words.

Spend more time talking to your children and your family and really spending quality time with them. After all, they won’t be around forever.

Here’s the test to see if your addicted to the internet.

Remove Facebook and Twitter off your Smart device and free up all the space on it. Now watch how much time you just gave Yourself by doing that!

Just think about all the cool software you can put on your smartphone that does something really awesome with the 4GB Facebook takes for the app and the messenger.

Now ask your absolute best friends to share cell phone numbers with those friends that you called friends and see how many really share the number.

I was on Facebook 10 years and maybe a dozen gave me their cell phone number out of 1000!!!!

So in retrospect I was really wasting my time wasn’t I?

You want to have high quality friends even if it’s only 5 of them rather than 5,000 you don’t even know.

If you’re brave and courageous enough to remove those apps off your device and you don’t feel any kind of remorse or anything else once they’re off you probably weren’t addicted and it’s just something you did as a hobby.

If you noticed you feel anxious, and it kind of bugs you haven’t not having the networking sites there, go ahead and stick them back on.

Watch it though, Facebook and Twitter full of a lot of people doing a lot of nothing substantial that truly matters.

Give yourself a certain amount of time on them then happily walk away, and then get off of it and go do something else.

I call it be out with life in the living not behind a monitor or a cell phone

Make sure we don’t replace people with robots and take the very technology that we created to make our life as human beings easier and instead minimize human being’s ability to think, reason and to communicate in a normal way in the real world.

Do something wonderful that you’ve been wanting to do for a long time but you haven’t had the chance.

For every hour that you’re doing computer work get away from it for an hour or more.

Life’s too great to just simply look at computer screens.

There are a few simple guidelines I operate by in life and some of them are:

  1. Put Integrity and value first, no matter what anybody else does.
  2. If you’re in business don’t be afraid to turn jobs down that would undermine your integrity or would be beneath what you represent.
  3. Fine tune your game plan every day.
  4. Be a voracious reader and lifelong learner.
  5. If you wonder how some thing is done, do research and then find out how to do it. Then, if you really want to do something cool, show someone else how to do it afterwards. You might learn to do it so well that you are able to mentor someone else in the future!
  6. Spend time in nature or at a minimum sunshine everyday. If you don’t have sunshine and the weather is dismal or rainy, then put on nature sounds for listen to the rain outside your window. Open the window slightly so you can hear it. Nature sounds are calming because we’re connected to them.
  7. Exercise and spend time building your balance, stamina, and concentration through exercises like yoga and Tai Chi.
  8. Keep only quality people around you who represent your ideals and ethical beliefs.
  9. Try to make as many voice-to-voice phone calls as you possibly can instead of texting. You will find that you’re going to be building more quality relationships because you’re going to hear vocal intonation that you wouldn’t have heard otherwise. It’s a much more human, highly personal way to communicate too- the way we did things before cell phones were invented! Another Fringe benefit that will blend over into other areas of your life, is that you’ll have fewer distractions while you work on more important projects.
  10. The satisfaction from communicating in a more old school way and avoiding some of the new School Technology is incredible. It will make you feel more relaxed and less like a tech geek.
  11. Try to minimize multi-tasking, and instead focus on quality, quality and more quality. Work on one specific thing at a time and keep your concentration level high into the best that you’re able.

So many prayers being answered and I am so grateful….

Above image taken by my dear friend Frederick Blanche at Lake Las Vegas Friday night. It was the first time I had ever been to Lake Las Vegas and I really had no idea where he was taking me to, as he wanted to keep it a surprise.

It was the most beautiful, cool evening with the enchanting lights all around and the reflection of the moon on the water. The delicate Breeze that felt like Southern California in Newport Beach and it reminded me of Fashion Island with the towering palm trees lining the massive Marquee wall as you turn the corner and drove into the area.

Every element was there to make an extraordinary moment and a stellar memory to go with it: the place, the time the special spontaneous moment and the company which was the center attraction.

One of the many enchanting restaurants in the Galleria are by Lake Las Vegas. There is a cozy French Bistro I wanted to go to and have coffee and soak up the atmosphere, people, sights. aromas and sounds….but that will be for a return trip sometime.

I’ve been praying to God in my words only and in the way that I want to- nothing scripted, nothing written, only spoken out loud and written on a whiteboard in my kitchen. The more I do that the more I’m seeing all my prayers answered almost immediately.

I just felt better all the way around. In my life health comes first and there are how many elements of the Catholic church that I don’t care for, but it was always the faith that I was raised in. With the Catholic Church you’re always begging God for everything and it’s a very self-deprecating faith or you’re never quite good enough for anything.

Don’t argue with anybody about that is just how I feel.

The great thing is once I realize that, and really look to see how I felt I can just put in my own words, I felt much better and it was liberating because that’s what you’re supposed to do according to the Bible anyway.

I had written that I wanted to find a personal assistant that was good and kind with a good heart who is talented and genuine. I wrote that on my whiteboard in the kitchen, and every day I read each one and pray and visualize each one happening.

I also that I wanted to find a partner that I could go into business with with, and others who had complimentary talents with mine, and I also have done just that.

We are meeting tomorrow and will bring to the table both of our minds, experiences and ideas and skills and abilities, which will be better than one.

PLM Studios who was a great photographer, artistic, with great people skills who had a marketing background.

I met that individual yesterday at a place I never went to in my life but just had a hunch to go there. I think sometimes hunches is God whispering to you and if you’re a spiritual person like myself, as you get older you really tune in on those things like a navigational GPS system guiding a satellite in the solar system.

And lastly I wrote I wanted to meet a wonderful guy who was kind and genuine with a good heart and of course a gentleman and all those prayers were incredibly answered in one day yesterday; it was almost surreal but it happened.

I also met a sweet, handsome intelligent gentleman who is a portraiture artist and who plays guitar. He and I have recently been getting to know each other. He asked me to play a song on my rosewood upright grand yesterday so I chose a piece I wrote called Mystic. It was awesome yo hear his excitement and it was great to simply play my piano again! Can I play the keys of the computer or smartphone or tablet incentive the keys of my piano and I know I should do it more often. Music was my first and only love for majority of my life after all.

He and I were talking about going into a studio in the future and playing some music together. I would draft up the chord chart for him to follow and we could record some of the songs that I wrote many years ago, which would be awesome.

This is something I prayed to do. I have simply spoken my prayers from my heart guided by the innermost depths of my soul while I envision them happening and writing them all with positive affirmations on my white board I see through the day.

Everyday and every minute the world is changing and so are we and we must be receptive to when we are changing and listen to what are instincts and true self says.

I didn’t feel like the Rosary did anything for me anymore, almost like I had moved on to a new Spiritual Realm, which is okay. As human beings the best things that we can do for herself and the best gift we can give ourselves is be true to ourselves. I feel is more true to my character.

I also began reading a phenomenal new book by Alan Cohen, the author of Handle with Prayer, a book which revolutionized my life the same day I started reading it. Things started getting better in my life immediately because of the way I thought about my relationship with God and the Omnipotent Presence or Higher Power is you may want to call it.

The new book that I begin reading on a free download from joining one of Alan Cohen mailing lists that tell all about what he’s doing all over the world is called “The Grace Factor”.

The Grace Factor speaks about how we all born complete and our uniqueness have our own uniqie beauty and we all have a right to be happy and to have blessings bestowed on us. In other words, The Grace Factor talks about instead of begging God for everything it’s you have a right to it and God is there with you helping you do all these things and the world. Treasures are waiting for you if you only ask for them….because you are deserving.

It’s totally different than the way I was raised.

I simply speak from my heart and from my soul, and from the innermost depths of my being -because I can, and that’s what I do best and because I am 100 genuine. Being genuine is all I know how to be.

May 26th 2018. 12:41 p.m.

One of my longtime friends said it was “transparent”, and I really didn’t understand what that meant. But if it means not saying anything that isn’t true or true to your nature and not saying anything unless you believe it, then that’s me.

I know that God listens when you and I are genuine, taking all the barriers down and facades and you truly ask for what you need and the wisdom to guide you in the direction you need.

When you have the utmost good intention in your heart, GOD LISTENS.

How can you add some “sparkle” to your day?

When was the last time you noticed everyone smiling in a room because of special things you said to the people who were in it?

A smile is a gift from God and more of them should be exchanged between strangers as we journey through life.

After all, a person is a “stranger” until you say “hello”.

What ways can you add some sparkle to your own day, making it more enjoyable?

What way can you add Sparkle to someone else’s day.

Simply being genuine and caring or noticing something subtle can make all the difference in the world.

Don’t ever be so wrapped up with yourself and the things you’re dealing with to not notice the people around you! The word for that is oblivious, and people who are totally self absorbed never truly experience the sights, sounds of living and special interactions with the people who they come in contact with.

Be 100% there and devote your total attention to whatever you do and whoever you’re with.

You’ll see the difference and your friends and family will appreciate that difference.

“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always had and you’ll always want what you always run away from.”-                        Luis A. Delgado

Those brilliant words came from my wonderful friend Luis A. Delgado.

He and I met in Southern California in Westminster many years ago, and even though neither of us live in California any longer we are still connected and are “kindred spirits”. WE BOTH have “the ocean and the beach in our soul” from living NEAR THE PACIFIC OCEAN  so many years. We also are VERY POSITIVE PEOPLE WHO LOOK to IMPROVE OURSELVES DAILY. 

Quote by Luis A. Delgado.

Photography & Digital Photo Arts by Paulette L. Motzko.

I’ve read numerous things that he’s written over time and ask permission to use his quote here that I read on Facebook tonight.

I hope this becomes one of many quotes from Luis too because he has so much wisdom and insights to share. He just doesn’t realize how gifted he is- yet.

Our Actions on the Keyboard of Earth Trigger Hammers on the Piano Strings in Heaven. Our obedience pulls the ropes which ring the bells of Heaven’s belfries. -Max Lucado

Quote from Max Lucado’s fabulous book called “Morning and Evening Devotional Journal. Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado.”

I created the image below after having my piano tuned again last night.

This morning, when I was saying my daily prayers, readings and meditations I came across the quote that was just made for the picture that I created last night it is almost as though God directed me to that passage so I can put the two together.

What actions can you do here on earth that will play music on the keyboard of heaven?

BLESS THE BEAUTIFUL UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Happy Flag Day 2017!

Photo created by Paulette L Motzko, Copyright June 2017 PLM Studios.

Wednesday June 14th 2017 at

 Here’s a note about the sparking American flag I used in the photo here….

It is one of my grandmother’s cherished pins she used to wear. She was my mother’s mother and singlehandedly raised her children on her own due to my grandfather James Hubert Hart dying of spinal meningitis when my mother was four years old.

Mom said the day that she finally realized that she was alive was the day she overheard someone talking about who is getting all the kids, and what houses they were all going to because Grandma couldn’t afford to take care of them all herself.

Grandma wasn’t afraid to take a man’s job in a time when it was was very unpopular for a woman to rivet airplanes -but she did. 

There wasn’t anything that could stop my grandmother Ruby Hart.

 She was proud to be an American citizen and so appreciative of everything that you ever did for her— just like my mother.

That’s why when she had Alzheimer’s disease-like my mother had, untiL she touched the face of God nearly a year ago  I didn’t think anything of helping taking care of her.

 I bought her big print Readers Digest books to encourage her to talk and keep her mind active…and they did.

 She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her and she smiled as she read each story.

I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about her life recalling memories of when she was younger.

I don’t have a digital image of Grandma-yet’ but I’ll create one for this story I didn’t know I was going to write, until writing the first sentence! 

I know we have our trouble in America, but when you compare us to other countries- it’s pretty damn nice country anyway you look at it. We have precious  freedoms another country can match.

I didn’t say God Bless America because I wanted everyone no matter who they were to be able to relate to the image and the meaning behind image.

 I’m Christian so I’ll always say God Bless America, but as an empowered lady I would love to see all of us all over the world worry less about religion & culture and focus more about just treating each other kindly and know everyone has a right to believe what they feel strongly about.

As long as they are not hurting you or anyone then let him believe it if they find solace and peace through it.

Uniting as living, breathing people who have the power to good-is my dream for not only America but for the world.

Written by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on Earth, for what they believe is what they will become. Brooke Hampton

That is exactly what my mother said to me all my life. She was my best cheerleader, my confidante, my motivator the sunshine and the sky on a beautiful summer stay and the brightest star that glimmers at night. I think her everyday for all of what she gave me: love, inspiration, her time, sharing ideas, sharing secrets that only the two of us knew because she trusted me implicitly.

This photo was a memory Facebook shared recently from about 6 years ago. It’s extra special because the photographer was my mother Ramona Le Pore. She and I were in my California kitchen sharing quality TIME, something I miss a lot now that she’s with Dad in heaven.

I know she still speaks through me whenever I see someone who looks downhearted and I share something with them or say something that cheers them up; mom used to do that all the time.

When you raise a child it’s a lot like gardening in the sense that you water them with love, kindness and hope to impart the best of yourself so that they can grow into a wonderful and a beautiful adult, unique from any other.

You’ll want to encourage them every chance you get when they will pay you back in dividends for the life they lead. Don’t ever talk baby talk to it your child because they’ll just repeat it like a trained parakeet for cockatiel that just repeats whatever it hears. 

Validate your child’s worth by teaching them thanks that will help them comma and showing by your example how to lead a good life, and honest life full of kindness, compassion and love your neighbors. 

My little baby cacti that I transplanted today, with all the love and tenderness in the world saying silent prayers that they would thrive in their new home.

My gopher plant that  is also a succulent and  is supposed to bloom with yellow flowers in the summer.

That’s what you want your kids to do with every good kind word you say to them. things like reading to your kids, congratulating them when they do well will make a huge difference in their lives forever.

You’ll help them BLOOM and THRIVE.

Every Action Has a Chain Reaction in Life -Make Your Actions Great, Memorable and Lasting!

  • Make the things you’re involved with in life be positive chain reactions.
  •  Make people glad they know you. 
  • Don’t be manipulative. 
  • Don’t be a user. 
  • Be a giver. 
  • Don’t look for something every time you do something – good or positive for someone for no reason.
  • When you give someone a gift that’s what that means – it’s a gift. You’re not looking for something in return. If you are looking for something in return, then that means you are manipulative and you’re doing it because you expect something- and it’s not a gift it all is it?

Make your intentions genuine.

Be sincere.

Have integrity.

Have big picture ideas where you see the big picture of the entire world and much as the nose on your face.

Shoot for longevity in the projects you’re working on.

Genuinely try and help every client, as unique a’s they are.

When you open your mind and think of opportunities and what you can give, and ways you could help each client—great things happen. 

Don’t compare ourself to what everyone else is doing. Think outside the box and think for yourself. Expand on your ideas.

If all you do is follow others, you could be following mediocrity! You want to be the one that leads the way to new, brighter Horizons!

Opportunities will arise that will appear as though if by Magic. I am a very spiritual, intuitive, Christian lady; I know that “magic” is GOD. 

Blessings will surface effortlessly when you have your mind off the dollars you’re getting for the job. Instead, focus on building lasting relationships and building in creating extraordinary projects that lead to recurring work and passive income.

Life is way more than quick payoffs.

Success isn’t measured by how much money you have in the bank but rather what kind of human being you are and what your value system is. You can make good money and add value to other people’s lives and enjoy doing it. All those things are possible for you and I. You have to give it all some serious thought though, with no distractions.

Everything you do in life builds your reputation, and from your soul, your mind and attitude, your heart and your brain- your reputation will follow you the rest of your life and each positive, proactive action carves your reputation.

Do good. 

Do great.

Do exemplary things.

Don’t be afraid of hard work because there is a huge payoff that will help more than you awaiting you.

Test to see if WordPress.com is Still Blocking My Images After Paying $299.00 for their Business Plan. Updated Post

My Business Plan I purchased on September 9th, 2016 for TotallyInspiredMind is set to auto renew at $299.00 yearly on the same day this year, only if I feel their customer service improves radically and if I feel like I’m a valued part of what makes wordpress.com successful.

They still haven’t told me WHY  they needed more money from me-dodging the question, and instead said that if I didn’t update my payment information they would destroy my site! That’s kind of like backing me into a corner like a rat! Of course I don’t want my site destroyed after I worked relentlessly on it, and it’s won Awards, and I now have attracted nearly 3000 followers who have followed my journey from Orange Cpunty, California to Las Vegas, Nevada, and nearly hundred countries tune in monthly.

(Since this post was there. I got an apology from Edward, one of their a”Hppiness Engineers” which I think is a stupid thing to call themselves. ALL THE BLOGGERS ARE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE who are on here are serious, for the most part, about promoting their work. In a correspondence that I wrote yesterday afternoon,  to Maureen, the lady that I was supposed to have a chat (texting back and forth to infinitum) -which I did not show up for.

I told her that I am too busy to sit there chatting like a idiot when this warrants a voice-to-voice, real human being, because I deserve a more personal phone call from someone within the corporate offices and wordpress.com.  

Now they were wrong admitted it, they still have it resolved the fact that I paid for numerous other domains that I’ve not seen the.com status on my websites.)

 I will be looking seriously thinking about moving my sites somewhere else and hiring a local web company to help me move all the web content over to wordpress.org  where I can be guaranteed that I don’t have drama like this.

 The thing I will miss dramatically though is the ability to reblog other phenomenal writers material. 


It’s not so much the reblogging the other people’s material, but the fact that I become friends with almost every person that I share their material- and I get to know them as human beings and that is enormous. so, in my heart of hearts I would like to work it out with them.)

 

I created Totally Inspired Mind in 2012, and over time have created many other web logs on WordPress.com. Many have won awards and are very highly rated.

You would think, that whatever money WordPress.com made off me and my winning content, I could have got a better response from them-after all these years- than “Update your financial information or will destroy your site!” That shows no diplomacy or resonsibility to me to be a great company looking after my best interests, does it?  

What would you do if you were me? 

I’m interested in hearing what you would do if you were me.

 I welcome your comments and suggestions on this matter to me.

I’d like to think the company I now have a venerable Blogging Empire on -appreciates MY BUSINESS, my presence, and think that my work is so valuable they wouldn’t think of destroying it in a million years!  

The CEO and President of WordPress.com should contact me assuring me nothing like it will happen again. 

 I like him or her to give me an apology and to be sincerely horrified by the responses of three of their stupid “happiness engineers.”  

If you’re paying about $300 or more to make a site run I don’t know about you, but I want to do with somebody other than a happiness engineer who in one heartbeat thinks to destroy your brain child that so many woman hours went into I couldn’t begin to count them all. 

Would you call someone to happiness engineer if they wanted to destroy your blog?

Maybe a Grief Creator, or a Drama Creator would more aptly named what their “Happiness Engineers” really are  in the real world.

It is after all WordPress.com is a business and it runs very simply. 

The fact that after I made the decision to host Totally Inspired Mind here in 2012 I pay them for specific services and for doing that, I expect a level of professionalism and quality control to insure all THE WORK I INVEST in each Web site are protected. 

I want the company who has a vested interest in what I build and create and works with me to PROMOTE and insure and improve it, if anything.

The last thing I thought I’d ever hear if some idiot say they wanted to destroy it though when I paid for the VIP plan and the FAULT WAS THEIRS that they admitted in an email to me.

And what would have happened to me if they didn’t realize that they goofed? 

And if I hadn’t pointed it out so very very carefully? 

I don’t like other people make decisions so quickly the could adversely affect me. That’s a major character flaw in the company which I will see you to never ever happens to me again.

 I thought it would feel different about it but I’m down life’s pretty simple: you don’t like what you’re getting from one you go to another person you go to another company where they do respect you.

 Every blogger is Golden and their contant is prized. After all, all the top-rated blogs on wordpress.com make WordPress exist. Without the bloggers WordPress is just dust. Remember that. It’s like with a good restaurant you can have the best food in the world, the best silverware the best prettiest pictures on the wall but if you treat people like garbage you have no people there -without people you have no restaurant.

Even though I heard from the customer service person named Eduardo who apologized for what they did and said I was 100% right and said that they were wrong and said it was blame to a computer glitch that they’re resolving, it still bothers me because they were so quick to destroy my site over a mistake they made when I worked on this is 2012 and that is Unforgivable.

The fact that they have stupid people who work for them would make such an idiotic decision or even say it or suggest it is repulsive. They’re supposed to help me promote it not destroy it common the fact that they goofed and made a mistake like that admit it or not, they don’t treat their valued customers the way they should. Is Albert Einstein said “when you repeat the same mistake over and over again it is called Insanity.”

Period I’m a nice lady but I’m not an idiot and business works very simply I pay them lots of money to make all my sites work and in one second a customer service three people didn’t answer my questions, and some idiot who didn’t invest one time in any of the things I’ve created nor know the amount of work that goes into creating it nor does he care was willing to destroy it and one second! Not cool. Not good business practice the better business bureau if I would tell them this whole story they would agree with me and I think any view bloggers out there the millions who sign up to wordpress.com would agree with me. You’ve seen the site from the day I created it and hotel room and Huntington Beach California when I realized I couldn’t take care of my mother any longer who had severe Alzheimer’s disease and I know that she needed and entire staff caring after her versus me, and I needed to not do it any longer and take care of me. Those realizations opened up a world for me and what I wanted to see what this site is exactly what it’s become. This is become a place where extraordinary people who care about the world, the environment, the future, children and everything that matters in life all congregate people people who care more about the entire world and themselves. Every extraordinary follower who is joined this site over the last month what you been over I believe 50, I thank you for your very special presence here. You make the site great and you make it very very special by you being here.

Obviously the people who run WordPress.com are not Triple Winners. They dont care about me, or my original web that gave them permission to share all over the place when I signed up to WordPress.com.

It’s too bad that WordPress.com doesn‘t get the big picture and realize that people like  me- and you-my dedicates readers and followers matter.

Without the writers and without photographers and without loggers WordPress goes bankrupt.

It’s too bad WordPress doesn’t see it as plainly as I are you do. Obviously money is the only thing on their minds and they don’t care what they do to my content everybody with it.

know that and don’t see that and don’t treat people who are VIPs with respect.

 Wordpress hasnt shown they as a company appreciate my business  and since this is a big wide world I will be working on taking their business elsewhere.

I wasnt able to find anyone to answer me with an intelligent answer to my intelligent question when I’ve asked them on numerous times why they wanted more money when my billing date is nowhere near due.

When after 5 years contributing original content here, the only thing I hear is “update your financial information or will destroy your site”? 

That’s not cool. As matter fact it’s not even professional.

I’ve saved every email, every bit of Correspondence on Evernote from WordPress.com. I have everything dated from every “customer service person” and “happiness expert”- and Im not happy who has contacted me with this company. Even with them admitting they screwed up and Eduardo with WordPress.com admitted they had no right to ask for continually more moolah….and they are still adressing why all the domains I bought don’t reflect .com on them.

Their stupidity and rash bad decisions almost cost me every bit of work I spent on here, turning 5 years of labor intensive efforts into dust. It is that and ignorable fact that i’s  going to have me move it elsewhere. The site will exist it’s just going to be better than one of these here with no limits and no fear tactics to get unauthorized payments from me.

I’m flabbergasted because I would have thought that WordPress.com would have realized how they can’t exist without all of the writers, bloggers and everyone who makes this site possible. I wouldn’t have created a venerable Empire here if I had thought any different.  I guess having hundred countries a month reading your blog isn’t good enough for him though huh. They didn’t create any of my site’s they are so quick to yet they are so quick to think of destroying them?

This is definitely not a good working creative environment.

Anybody have any comments, suggestions, did anyone learn anything by me airing the story?

Hopefully, if you paid for the Business or Premium plans like I did, and you didn’t get what you bought,  you’ll address it and get what you should have all along.

Good morning everyone. Inspire Just One Person Today. Mentor Another

You can make the difference in subtle and very profound ways, without even knowing it in another person’s life.

 The next time you really listen to your intuition or inner voice as I call it, give this some true thought:

Think about someone you know who could use your expertise about skill, a new trade, or about a job that you’ve done for many years. Think about something very easy for you but hard for them. Step up to the plate in The Game of Life and offer to make their path a little smoother and a little easier. 

If you know someone who is building a website or a blog, and you happen to be a master at it, show them how to do it just because you can. Don’t look for money or for compensation- but just do it because it makes you feel like you made a difference and it’s rewarding.

In life, you don’t have to make money on everything, but rather to make the difference and to be that extra spoke and wheel it makes that car run, or to mentor another and know from that moment on, the person you’re mentoring will have opportunities unveiled because of your actions is highly rewarding and empowering . 

Next, find someone who looks really downtrodden, sitting all alone and say something to that person. Say something that’s 100% genuine AND LETS THEM KNOW THEY MATTER and that you know that theyre not indivisible.  To raise someone’s self-esteem and to make them aware of their true potential, to me, is one of the greatest satisfaction on the face of the Earth. It’s not just that one instance that is so intrinsic or special, but the POWERADE of that one instance leading to a chain reaction in a lifetime of change for that human being. 

I know Dr. Leo Buscaglia had said in his fabulous book called LOVE, that I highly recommend, that I read in 1984 when I was in college that:

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, smile, a kind word, a listening ear. An honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” 

(I have the magnet on my fridge and I read it all the time of the power that every individual has to make an impact on other people’s lives.)

It is the ittle things in life like that make it special, for not just yourself but for them as well because they create that wonderful thing called “Triple Win”- I win, um, and Society wins. Just imagine that from moment Society wins period That’s a concept was introduced to me in the Master’s certification program at Chapman University back in 1997.  

Here on March 12th 2017, when all of our clocks for fast-forwarded an hour due to daylight savings time, fast forward the result of your positive actions before you do them and see the big picture of your great works before you do them. Be a Visionary. Be a catalyst for positive change on a intimate, one-on-one basis and in your community too.

You be the huge difference in someone’s life and build some new friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime from your initiative.



God bless….

More people have epilepsy than you are aware. Many people you know have it but they just wanted to tell you later, for fear that you won’t be their friend or something.

All you need is a blow on the head, high fever, convulsions, severe enough infection or a coma and you could acquire it. I had all those things and nearly died before my second birthday. 

In other words, everyone is susceptible epilepsy under the right circumstances.

I was diagnosed with complex partial epilepsy when I was 9 years old, but I had simple partial seizures when I was four but didn’t know how to describe them. Many seizures are difficult to describe, because they don’t feel like pain, but rather a sensation.

I will always be a spokesperson for those who have the disorder and care about those who disabled because of my experiences as now a mature young minded senior of 55.

I hope to make this newsletter make money (monetize it) this year and work with CURE Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy to use their 501C3 tax status and accept private nations from people and foundations and companies giving them banner ads.

Say prayers all this, with my tenacity becomes a reality.  I have how do you touch bases with someone in marketing from cure already and so the wheels are turning in a very positive direction.

Paulette Le Pore Motzko is the creator and editor of Your Epilepsy Resource Guide and in the past the founder of  The Epilepsy Connection which was a grass roots organization in Orange County in the late 1990’s and former Director of the sub- affiliate in Orange County, California of the Epilepsy Foundation.

As soon as you get the “inside” right, the “outside” will fall into place. As soon as you honor the present moment, unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with ease. Eckhart Tolle

“If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. As soon as you honor the present moment, unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.” Eckhart Tolle

Minimalism by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Above image photographed by Paulette Motzko in Laguna Woods, California. Digital Photo Arts by Paulette Motzko, PLM Studios, February 2017.

While watching a wonderful and enlightening documentary, I put together this piece here.

Check out this web site called TheMinimalists.com.

TheMinimalists.com 

One of the rules that – says is:

1.”Every possession serves a purpose or gives you joy.”

I have been doing this over the last year like a materialisman detox.

2. “People don’t use the space inside their homes over an average day.” Maybe 40% of the space is used, says David Friedlander Communications Director LifeEdited.

3. Frank Mascia says that “We are living our life depending on the space we’ve got rather than creating our space to fit our lives.

You don’t need the bigger is better philosophy.

 You just need enough for you. Don’t compare yourself to your neighbors, as what’s good for them isn’t good for you-since you are two very different people.

Go for quality versus quantity in life. That includes the amount of friends you have and the quality those kind of people that you associate with.  It is better to have a few great friends that a bunch of people in your life that you don’t even know who they are.  

Wean yourself off Facebook especially, because there is a high volume of “Let Me One Better You” kind of people there. Many on there have no life whatsoever, and fill it with playing games and messaging other people and when they are not doing that they find fault with other people who are doing well, driving them down into their little pathetic existence. That’s what people do who are losers. They try and dim the shine on other people who are doing well to try and bring them down to their own levels.

Don’t get me wrong though. I still have a Facebook account but I get on it as I used to in a kind of obligatory way. All the time I invested with it very few people ever come from there to my website here. Most of my referrals are from Twitter or other blogs or websites. 

So far all the time that I spent with Facebook wasn’t really producing anything other than talking to a few friends who lived in other states that I want to keep in touch with.

Now, by me calling the shots, i can Focus 100% of what I’m doing hen I want to and I’ll install it when I don’t want to deal with anybody. I am the one in control versus Facebook being the one in control, and I like it that way. 

I want to be able to focus on my work, life and simply living.

 I began doing that a couple months ago and was so happy with how much I got done and how I was able to concentrate on writing things and doing things without hearing a ding ding ding all day my stupid messenger from Indian guys who were 20 years old and wgo I will never see or military guys who want a mother for their kids!

I simply uninstall whichever networking site that I don’t want to do it and then I add it when I want to come talk to people and catch up on what I missed whatever it is. Anybody that I really want to stay in touch with has my phone number. There’s few that I do that with but they have my phone number they know my email they know how to reach me voice-to-voice. That’s how I prefer. I know all about Skype and it’s fun to see a video call but I still feel kind of like a cyborg girl robot when I do that kind of stuff. Being that I was born in the sixties and I’m 55 years young, good old-fashioned telephone or fancy smartphone is fine with me.

Texting pictures and emoticons will ever give you the personality of that person. I am am old fashioned telephone lady because it feels more natural to me  and I enjoy hearing the vocal intonation and voice behind the people I care about.

It’s a liberating feeling to know that you’re in control of your own life and keeping the networking sites at bay help you enjoy life more.

Facebook is full of people who can’t wait to show all their stuff and all their fancy things, as if though it were a contest.

There is Merit to everything if you enjoy Facebook and can manage to do your work and convince to live a full life and go ahead and do it. Whatever floats your boat then by God, Sail Your Ship to New Horizons!

I’m so happy that after reblogging some of my friends and followers web post on Totally Inspired Mind, this blog post appeared that I created some of last night and the rest just now at 2:22 p.m. on President’s Day. I had scheduled it to appear today, and I’ve never done that before and put it on private setting. Last night when I looked and my administrative settings I couldn’t even find it in pending post or private. I am happy that it wasn’t inadvertently destroyed.

The rain stopped yesterday and I’ve got some sun outside now and the bluest sky I’ve seen in the last 3 days.

Vegas has temperamental weather. It’s like fire and ice, either really cold and gloomy or hot as hades. 

I’m not sure what I’m going to do but I’m going to get out of here for a while.

Have an awesome rest of your day!

Helen Keller says “Certainly I believe that God gave us life for happiness, not misery. Humanity, I am sure, will never be made lazy or indifferent by an excess of happiness. Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”

Paulette Motzko’s Writing Books  Recommendations and Pathways to Inspiration

This article was inspired by one of my recent followers, who went through a very tragic and tumultuous year. Because of this it stopped this once prolific writer from producing anything at all. 

Sometimes we can be over critical on ourselves, overanalyzing everything that we do. That quality doesn’t help us when we create anything of value in this world, written or otherwise. Create because you want to create. Whether it be be a mud pie, a sandcastle,  a watercolor painting, a photograph, a beautiful song,  a recipe, a loaf of bread, or  the manuscript for your first book.

Wallpaper Image from Zedge.com.

Writing can be catharsis or it can be euphoria. You can carve every word just as though you were Michelangelo and you were carving marble transforming  something  hard and solid into something that breathes with life. 

That’s the analogy I like best when it comes to writing, and it has served me well since my Honors English days in High School. I took every English class that Garden Grove High had to offer I had phenomenal teachers, better than even in college.

And one thing I did in every writing class is writing is to write in my personal Journal -and just write every day. 

In other words, write things that the world never see. 

There are things that are only for you, God, and serve a very valid purpose.  If you don’t have a journal, go buy a nice one at Barnes & Noble, or simply use Microsoft Office  Word  on your smartphone computer or tablet.

 Through devoting time to writing in a special place that inspires you, which is very important, extraordinary things will emerge. Stories can develop right before your eyes, poems can be written, recipes can be thought of.

With everything you write anywhere, especially on a Blog that seen all over the world – you’re gaining  experience, exposure, notoriety, readership and it’s just enjoyable. The enjoyable part is the most important one of all.

Once you start carving out time for writing, you’ll start carving words that are memorable and lasting and worth remembering.

If you are a writer, check out my other blog called A Writer’s Joy. A Writer’s Joy

 Any kind of art, written or otherwise, is an extension of your soul. Art I’d an extension of  your inner most being. Writing is one of those timeless arts, that if used in the right way,  can outlive you do great things long after you leave this earth, creating a legacy.

Write because you feel what you’re doing is beautiful and has merit, or serves a valid purpose, or can simply  give joy, enlightenment someone, educate or you’d simply like to share it with the world. That’s exactly what you can do on a blog.

I’m going to be adding to this book list over the next week. I’m going to start with these two, which in themselves are phenomenal starting points, even if no other books were added to the list.

I hope my words of encouragement and blessings on all of your present and future creations extraordinary Beyond Your Wildest Dreams! To all of the artists, writers, photographers, musicians, and chefs create what’s never been created before. Enjoy the process. Learn everything you can about your craft. Read books, and associate with people who are doing what you want to do and let them enter you in every way they possibly can. Listen to advice and listen to helpful criticism but don’t let others dim the light that shines inside you that’s waiting to burst like a beacon to the world.

The Giving Tree

This story is so sad but beautifully illustrates how we should try and do and give everything we possibly can to our parents while we can.

The tree this gives mangoes is a metaphor for our parents and the boy represent every child.

One day they will need us and since they gave us LIFE itself,  we can create extraordinary memories to draw back on of the TIME we spent with them.
Paulette Le Pore Motzko

November 6th 2016 9:27 a.m.

Wisdom Story: “The Giving Tree”
—————————
“Once upon a time, there lived a big mango tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the tree top, ate the mangoes, took a nap under the shadow… He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him. Time went by, The little boy grew, and he no longer played around the tree.
One day, the boy came back to the tree with a sad look on his face. “Come and play with me,” the tree asked the boy. “I am no longer a kid, I don’t play around trees anymore.” The boy replied, “I want toys. I need money to buy them.” “Sorry, I don’t have money… but you can pick all my mangoes and sell them so you will have money.” The boy was so excited. He picked all the mangoes on the tree and left happily. The boy didn’t come back. The tree was sad.

One day, the boy grown into a man returned. The tree was so excited. “Come and play with me,” the tree said. “I don’t have time to play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help me?” “Sorry, I don’t have a house, but you can chop off my branches to build your house.” So the man cut all the branches off the tree and left happily. The tree was glad to see him happy but the boy didn’t come back afterward. The tree was again lonely and sad.

One hot summer day, the man returned and the tree was delighted. “Come and play with me!” The tree said. “I am sad and getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?” “Use my trunk to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy.” So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and didn’t come back for a long time.

Finally, the man returned after he had been gone for so many years. “Sorry, my boy, but I don’t have anything for you anymore. No more mangoes to give you.” The tree said. “I don’t have teeth to bite,” the man replied. “No more trunk for you to climb on.” “I am too old for that now,” the man said.

“I really can’t give you anything, the only thing left is my dying roots,” the tree said with sadness. “I don’t need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years,” the man replied. “Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest. Come sit down with me and rest.” The boy sat down and the tree was glad and smiled.

Moral: The tree in the story represents our parents. When we are young, we love to play with them. When we grow up, we leave them and only come back when we need help. Parents sacrifice their lives for us. Never Forget their sacrifices. Give them Love and Care before its too late.”

You must read “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein, which is what this story was abridged from. It is really an adult book told them very childlike an easy to understand way.

Thank you for telling me the author of this Jennie.

Relaxing Background Guitar Music & How Creating An Inspiring Environment by Paulette Motzko

https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv1Yx3eFnEg&feature=share

I love this beautiful acoustic guitar play list.  

If you are a creative person just like I am, the key is to find out to flowing inspiration is to know in an intimate way what environment helps you create the best in yourself.

 Keep repeating it over and over again. What works for you will be different than anyone else. 

Things that inspire me are…

Beautiful natural surroundings are beautiful places

The Pacific Ocean

Majestic mountains

Enchanted Forest’s

Inspiring workplaces that are conducive to concentration

Special music playlist and help bring out the best in your artwork. This could be writing, this could be photography, this could be cooking or painting or some other art form.

The special place that everytime you go there you meet someone extraordinary. I have several places like that and I don’t even question what happens I just know it happens. Will meet someone who is absolutely extraordinary every time I go to this certain location. If you pay attention you’ll find then you can maximize the positives in your world. Just pay attention and follow your instincts and usually always steered in the right direction.

And lastly I do a lot of meditation everyday I’m prayer and centering thought hoping to create something I feel give something back to the universe, and will last long after I touched the face of God.

 It’s a learning curve when you’re a writer or a photographer or an artist it would never put you in the right frame of mind, and helps you create the best that is in your soul- then do it.

If you cannot be positive, then at least be quiet. Joel Osteen

Joel Osteen says: “If you cannot be positive, then at least be quiet.”

…and then, when you have thought about your situation,  and made sense about it with God and silence and self-introspection,  then open your mouth.

As my mother taught me from the time I was a small child – don’t say anything unless you can say something good. And if you’re giving someone criticism make sure it’s constructive because trying to lift people up and bring out the best in people. Everyone has problems they’re going through, they’ve had promised in their life and they’ve dealt with things that probably would shock you. Try and be the star in someone’s night sky and make people glad that they said hello to you.

The worst thing you can do is drag people down into your own mental rut.

Plastics To Outweigh Fish if We Don’t Change Our Habits & Recycle More!

I wish people would simply put trash in a trash can and look at the sea and the ocean and river’s and streams and think of it as our marine life’s home. 

Water is also necessary for us to sustain life. By throwing trash and plastics and garbage in the sea, we are slowly but surely messing up one of our own most vital natural recourses for maintaining life on earth.

Spread the word to conserve and appreciate our oceans and to care about all life. Our ecosystems are interconnected with us. 

If we have respect for all life  and  the Earth  will be able to enjoy a beautiful view like this for a long time.

This place is absolutely fabulous!

From our tantalizing appetizer of caprese insalata and French bread with dipped in a sweet Balsamic vinegar and extra Virgin olive oil, to my main course of ravioli brasato -the flavors sung on my taste buds sweeter than the opera singers sang in St. Mark’s Square!

One aspect of your life may be bad, but all your ingredients are not in.

“One aspect of your life may be bad, but all your ingredients are not in. Remember, a little baking soda can make a huge difference in a cookie recipe. Just a little break, just one person, just one idea, just one touch of God’s favor can turn the bitter into the sweet, sorrow into Joy, the mourning into dancing.”

-Joel Osteen from his phenomenal book- It’s Your Time.

Last night, before I went to bed I picked up Joel Osteen’s book in large print edition called it’s your time I got it from the library.

I absolutely love the title on it and under the title was printed “Activate Your Faith, Achieve Your Dreams and Increase God’s Favor Now. That’s before I even knew about his book called “I Declare” which I discovred from some pins on Pinterest.
I would recommend getting both of them. His metaphors are fresh and inventive and creative and it’s just exactly what I needed and was “the missing ingredient” if you will, and the “recipe” for my life of this week after losing my mother on the 5th.

It’s wonderful how he says “it’s not one isolated event that determines your destiny. All the ingredients arent in in yet, comparing our lives to a recipe with different experiences as the ingredients.

We have different experiences we go through in life that make the complete picture.

So sometimes, the best ingredients, like it’s in a chocolate chips in a chocolate chip cookie recipe are saved for last.

I know it’s very difficult for me at this time because I haven’t even gone to the funeral yet for mom, and another that put both their ashes together in a military cemetary. I will get through it and I will not be alone.

And I know that it sure as the chapter closes of my mother’s sweet, wonderful, forever misses life, other chapters are opening on my life that will take me in new, positive directions…but it is hard now.

God bless all who read my words all over the world! .

“Warren Buffett’s Top 10 Rules For Success” & Paulette Motzko’s Advice

Warren Buffett’s  advice for living is fantastic. He has many short and sweet pointers they can become guiding principles  if you allow them to be.

I was listening to this YouTube video when I was in the kitchen doing things one of the key points I picked up was “what people look for” is people who are energetic and smart and the other component in finding people to work with and also as friends is integrity. Also passion and enthusiasm they’re really high on the list too.

That’s my personal guiding principle in life, kind of like the DNA of my system.

If the people I associate with don’t have integrity I don’t associate with them- it’s that simple.
I’m very selective on who I hang with because I don’t want to be like those with undesirable qualities, or pick up any of their bad habits.

My mom taught me early on that “who you associate with is who you become”, well to a large extent that’s true.

I would encourage you to be around people who believe in your dreams and who help you achieve your dreams that’s my advice.
