“I Am Forrest Gump” by Alan Silvestri

When I heard this song play this afternoon I remembered the opening of the movie with a feather that was done with CGI Graphics that was blowing all over the place through town, landing on the bench where Forrest Gump was sitting.

 I remember so vividly in technicolor and have that beautiful image playing in my mind like the movie did.

Combined with the beautiful soundtrack music that Alan Silvestri wrote, “I Am Forrest Gump”, it will always move and inspire me. The music  Only lasts for 2 minutes but it’s a glorious 2 minutes!

I can still remember remember it as though it was yesterday.

I also remembered that I bought the sheet music to it, actually Mark bought it for me (my ex-husband) and I was trying to find it the other day. But it was lost in my sea of sheet music. ALL THOSE YEARS OF TEACHING PIANO I COLLECTED a Lot of sheet music.  It’s unfortunate though, that sometimes I can’t find what I am looking for!

 I considered  the song lost in my sea of sheet music, and decided I would simply do as I always did before I learned how to read sheet music which is  just sit down, listen and play what I heard.

 I put it on a loop on Spotify and tried to play by the sing by ear instead! AND TO MY ELATED SURPRISE,  I DID.

The motto of the story is- shoot for the best that you can do in this world and then just try because the best that can happen is you just might do it!

“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.

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.

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.

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….

I, for one, love strength, daring, fortitude. I do not want people to kill the fight in them; I want them to fight for the right things. Helen Keller

Helen Keller Says: “I, for one, love strength, daring, fortitude. I do not want people to kill the fight in them; I want them to fight for right things.”

One of the earliest known pictures of Helen Keller with her extraordinary teacher Anne Sullivan. She was my role model since I was 9 years old diagnosed with epilepsy. I discovered her and playing piano I’m cooking, and writing, it is very early age and very pivotal age in my life. I realized after reading what she did dealt with what she had to deal with that I could do anything I put my mind to do, if I only wanted to badly enough.

Later picture of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan,  also from Pinterest, . Photographer unknown.

Anne Sullivan brought Enlightenment to Helen Keller’s life. Before Anne Sullivan entered Helen Keller’s dark and Silent world, she didn’t understand why she was there and didn’t understand that everything had a meeting and everything had a name in this world. I suggest you read any of the books that Helen Keller wrote. Your life and your attitude will be forever changed. She was brilliant and it was Anne Sullivan that brought out that brilliance hiding like a tulip waiting to bloom buried deep in the Earth.

Thank you to each and every one of my Triple-Winning, Extraordinary 2,691 Followers on Totally Inspired Mind!

You each are like special gifts that I unwrap each day when I read your comments and also explore your own blogs, stories and photographs.   

I am very blessed to know you all through WordPress, and others through Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and some fresh air addresses and phone numbers. ( I am not on Facebookmuch any more due to it being too distracting on my goals I am trying to accomplish.)

I am a voice-to-voice and face-to-face kind of person anyway. I don’t like to text and it was clear using messaging thing, because I start feeling like a robot rather than a human being.

Keep being wonderful and special and I will keep trying to empower, educate,  entertain and inspire you back!

We’re Still Here by Jolyn Young (Cowboys, Cows & Cowgirls)

We’re Still Here – http://wp.me/p46axJ-pb

The theme today on Totally Inspired Mind is “the high desert”….I searched “high desert” on the Reader on my WordPress app on my Galaxy Note 4 I am writing this with. Up came wonderful, vibrant, refreshing stories from writer/photographer/bloggers living in New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada- which is how I spotted Jolyn Young’s true life story about what it’s like to be married to a Rancher and cowboy and to live in the Wild West. 

Jolyn’s story “We’really Still Here” inspired me. Her photos, which I to use as illustrations later, and in her story of what it is like to live in a rustic, rural wilderness that at times is so harsh yet so beautiful.

I was born in Tucson, Arizona and I remember as a kid at 4 years old, the black stallions running in the Prairie surrounding red and purple painted mountains and seeing Indian tee pees. I went crazy every time I saw a “horsie”-as I called them then, and still think they’re one of the most beautiful animals that walk the earth.

So check out read Jolyn’s story and you’ll see her photos when you click on the link. The ones I have embellishe’d this article with were especially selected from Zedge by me. You can save them as wallpapers for your computer or smart devices.

So, from the big city girl me enjoy this insight into the life of a country girl Jolyn Young..

She makes me want to get my tripod out you’re going to take my Nikon out on the open range and go shoot some pictures and go ride a horse!

Sharing Stellar Ideas Like  Monarch Butterflies Flying From My Hands to The World by Paulette L Motzko

This all began with me sharing a beautiful Chinese Proverb late in the day and having Jennie Fitzkee, who is a teacher, writer and blogger and wonderful human being comment on how wonderful it was can I share the proverb. See it said that through me  I made the proverb brand new again. 

And I told her that I had never heard it before so for me it was brand new. 

From there I tried to put into words what inspiration is to me. And,  for the first time I was able to actually define it in a way that accurately fits what I envision it to be.

I asked Jennie to email exactly what I wrote in my reply to her, and she did. Somehow when I replied to her on the WordPress Web platform,  my response was completely not visible to me, and they always are.

“Jennie, I had never heard it so for me it was sparkling brand new.  It is just so gratifying when I share something I know is meaningful here.  I have a photographic memory and am a visionary kind of person.  I picture me gently holding a monarch butterfly in my hand and seeing the beauty of it all…then letting it go free to shine it’s beautiful splendor on the world.  The audience of Totally Inspired Mind are like flowers in a garden, each unique in their own way, none more pretty than the next.  

When I get an idea I think is along the lines of good or great or empowering, the idea transforms into that “butterfly” that I briefly hold in my hands, admiring it, only to let it go free in hopes it will touch other’s lives to spread joy to them too.

  Jennie inspired me to write that, what I called on a new Board on Pinterest I created today called “Divine Inspiration”….

People can be a catalyst for incredible ideas and collaboration that would never have been had the two people met. I would have never believed that when I got the idea for Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate from a hotel room Huntington Beach after I realized I could no longer take care of my mother who had very acute Alzheimer’s disease. Mom required a 24 hour staff  instead of me. And the most liberating thing was realizing that and being blatantly honest with those realities.

I began focusing on only myself and putting myself number one, which was strange at first. I was giving everything I possessed as a human being with nothing coming back my way, and I had to quit before the flame was extinguished. The flame bein me.

Too many caregivers give so much of themselves there remains only a whisp of who they originally were before, with almost nothing left for themselves. That is all too common in the world. 

 I had the idea for this site but just never had a free moment to be able to think or concentrate on anything for longer than 5 minutes. I am not complaing, those were just the realities of helping my dear mother Ramona, now in heaven–I am glad I was there for here because she needed me, and this time’s with her are precious memories that will play back for all time with a smile on my face.

I wouldn’t ever have believed what began as my brain child where I could envision the greatest, most kind, big picture thinking people all getting together….and meeting one another….around a table set around the world.

It transformed from my vision to  a website to immediate skyrocket of passionate, Triple Winning people who instantly embraced my idea and loved it. 

The amount of effort that I’ve expended into it has comeback a thousandfold. It transformed from a caterpillar of an idea and through a kind of time-lapse metamorphosis, became a living, breathing wonderful entity. ….a very human thing because it is composed of imput and comments from all if you-my fabulous readers!

I have transformed into a completely different lady too, through the years, who is stronger and more capable and happier with a place I can truly call home.
