Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. – Helen Keller. Commentary by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

This simple but very poignant quote comes from my childhood heroine who is still my adult heroine today.

She formed many of my viewpoints on what “disabled” people can do at an early age. We all have some kind of disability, big or small, it’s how we view it that makes all the difference. We can downplay or highlight it.

Make the most of your intelligence, abilities and skills.

Helen Keller accomplished more in her lifetime without seeing or hearing then many have ever done in their entire life blessed with vision and hearing.

If you ever desire to read an extraordinary book on the free audio book app called LibriVox….look up Helen Keller and you’ll find enough reading material to keep you inspired for weeks.

Once you install Librivox-based on the Latin prefix Librivox-based meaning book, and vox meaning voice.

Listen to “The World I Live In” by Helen Keller.

It will change the way you look at your world forever.

Read “Optimism” also by her on Google Play Books.

If those two don’t make you aspire to greatness, I don’t know what will!

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!

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.

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.

What three words are meaningful to you? Share your three words in the comment box.

Integrity, Compassion, and Proactivity are my three words which signify things that are key stars in my life.

It would be awesome to hear from some of the many followers and readers on totally inspired mind. Maybe your reader that just joined over the last 30 days, and I thoroughly appreciate your presence here everyday. What are three things which matter to you? How about I ask you in that way?

As 2017 exits out of our existence by midnight tonight and 2018 comes in with a crescendo, by you telling me what three words matter to you, it tells me a lot about you and what you value, and more about what you place importance on.

 I hope to hear from more of you today and I hope that if you decide to go out to a party or something that you are safe.

Thanksgiving Every Day: Thankfulness is a Mindsetest and Way of Life

Me choosing scrumptious subtlety sweet Italian Lemon Cream Cake at Fellini’s Italian Restaurant at the Stratosphere by candlelight late at night

which is something I typically don’t do as I go to bed pretty early and get up pretty early, but something told me to just go out and enjoy my Thanksgiving the day before all the crowds blocked the freeway getting down to the strip today on Thanksgiving. So, since I took a nap and got extra sleep I was able to go out down to Roxy’s Diner where I have lots of friends who work there, and it’s always a wonderful time there and I had an open faced turkey sandwich, which was almost a Thanksgiving dinner! It was so big that I’m going to be in the leftovers today.

The photo that miraculously had enough power, even on power saver to make possible. 

I didn’t take my usual three batteries for my Note 4, and didn’t really want to sit at Starbucks doing work like I usually do, OR carry a bunch of “junk” with me that weighs a ton, like I usually do. We all need balance in life and we need to  maximize every area of our life  be it personal , work, spiritual  and physical exercise too.
It’s good to do something out of the ordinary and be spontaneous once in awhile and communicate with people, not take an earpiece purposely, even if you like to listen to music on a playlist through the day or whatever, but just connect with life and the living.

I know I made everyone else’s Thanksgiving extraordinary that I went out of my way to communicate with in a totally genuine way, and every time I did that Joy  came back at me like I have a boomerang.

They hire people who are really wonderful and kind and go out of their way at The Stratosphere anyway. It was fun to go up to police officers, security guards, people who were traveling from other states, people who sat alone, and people who are doing heavy manual labor jobs and purposely wish them a very blessed Thanksgiving.

People who do that kind of work NEED KINDNESSS most of all because they do their job with smiles on their faces but quite often get lost in the shuffle of life.

 It’s nice when one person looks their name tag and thinks enough of them to call them my name and let them know that they’re important. Things like that can make a difference in somebody’s life.

May you all have a most blessed Thanksgiving and carry the spirit of Thanksgiving with you every day throughout the year.

“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!

It’s always summer in my heart.

It’s no matter that I have lived in Las Vegas, NV several years now with the dust blowing around me and the rocks beneath my feet; it will always be summer in my heart and soul.

Me below at the Starbucks in The Stratosphere. The photo was taken a few days ago on the 11th of November. 

I was born in Tucson, Arizona, also the desert Southwest, but for over 40 years of my life. Southern California was my home.

I was old enough to truly appreciate the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean around me, the palm trees  calm of the beautiful flowers and all of the other  extraordinary scenery  of California.

It is where I went elementary school, Middle School, High School and college graduate School. Where I was married and 15 years later unfortunately divorced. But it’s also where I began discovering who I really was deep inside after being true to my inner voice, as I call my intuition.

I would love to lease a place there and yet keep my place in Vegas. That way, I could enjoy the uniqueness of both and do work with my old clients and discover new ones.

There are no perfect places to live, but ones that can never be forgotten, like the special people who have helped make me who I am.

I hope that what’s coming for me is like my paper whites blooming with twice the blooms they were supposed to have, my goals exceeding my expectations.

Your Vibe Attracts your Tribe!

Empowering Image photographed and created by Paulette L Motzko.

Copyright October 2017. PLM Studios. Las Vegas, Nevada.
What you put out in the universe is even more important now than ever. 

What vibe are you giving out to the world? 

Is it good? 

Is it bad? 

Or is it a different? 

Indifference or apathy is the worst crime of all in my opinion.

 Treat others like you want to be treated, with dignity, with respect and know that colors are invisible in the eyes of God.

“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?

Have “Springtime in Autumn” by     Paulette L. Motzko & Watch “Forcing Paper Whites, a How-to Video with Glenwood Weber” on YouTube

I bought 20 beautiful large paperwhites about a month ago, and due to all the terrible weather events we had all over the world, they were delayed in the shipment. I contacted the people that I bought them from and one of the managers contacted me back and they were sent priority mail the next day.

Even though it’s Autumn here in Las Vegas, Nevada with very few if any fall leaves to be seen, I’m going to be creating “Springtime in Autumn” by forcing paperwhites indoors.

Bulbs are so easy to work with and you can keep them going for years. They’re awesome for a beginning gardener. Usually just plant them about 1/2 to 3 times deep of what the bulb size is; the planting directions will tell you.

Years ago in my first house in Sandy Utah, when I was married to the rocket scientist, Mark”s sweet and very generous grandmother Hazel Griffin sent us several hundred dollars worth of bulbs and I had fun playing them all over the yard in around the bhouse. 

I kept those orchids going for many years after and they were absolutely gorgeous. There were jumbo gladiolus and red and yellow and tulips, because we got snow in Sandy, Utah which was 20 minutes away from Salt Lake City. It was just awesome living there. I wouldn’t do it now because of the high amount of snow Utah gets.  it’s great we can have a guy cleaning the driveway, and when you’re driving in a car everywhere you go. But for me who walks and uses lift and gets around a myriad of ways, it wouldn’t be logistically smart.  but I will always remember the extraordinary Panorama mountains and how it look like a painting, how clear it was from where we lived by the Wasatch mountains off to see the Capitol building we could see as clear as day. I would say that Sandy Utah Salt Lake City is the opposite of Las Vegas Nevada. They’re people with their doors open and as long as you were good people they were good to you. Here we have a high crime rate high fraud rate there’s weirdos and goofballs and drunks all over the place it’s the opposite of what that place was, and what many places are I like my place here and it is cheaper to live but there’s prices you pay for that.

 Utah was beautiful country and that the Mormon people were so awesome so kind so nice because I learned all about there  and even though I didn’t believe what they did  we respected one another . I wish more people thought like that . You don’t have to agree with everybody just need to respect their viewpoints and their beliefs. 

Around Christmas time at The Visitor Center, they spent about three months every year wiring lights all around Visitor Center it was absolutely gorgeous. 
Back to the bulbs, you can keep bulbs going for years just by taking them out, if you live in an area where you can do daffodils outside, like I used to in Southern California, I naturalized them outdoors and my last house in Orange California with the now ex and, I had crocus coming up ‘the first to come up in the spring time and daffodils.

I love growing things this is the first place that I’ve had where I could actually do that and think of growing things once I learned how to do it here in the terribly hot  southwest desert.

I hope that by airing this video and buy me writing this, you’ll think of creating “Springtime at Autumn” where you live, and adding joy to your desk or your window sill by planting some really beautiful paperwhites

 I ordered these around my birthday August 31st, which was the time they recommend to plant these. But, if you plant them (force them) indoors, you can have these going all year.

 It’s kind of like having Springtime in your window sill are on your desk, which is what I’ll be having in about 2 weeks once I plant them. 

I have everything but the little glass planter that you need to do these and gravel hydroponically.

I’m soon getting ready to head for church but I wanted to air this. 

As I learn the world learns with me, and that’s just one of the cool thing about having a blog that’s read all over the world.

God bless you all.

If you’re Mormon, Muslim, Jewish, Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist, and any other Christian faith, or don’t know what you believe, I bless you anyway and I hope that only good comes to you in every way.

We’re all the same on this planet and it really doesn’t matter. What matters is how you act and how you treat people it’s not the name your faith and it’s not how many times you go to church. 

None of that matters what matters is who you are, what you do and what you bring to the world and what you want to leave the world as because you were in it.

Light House by James Taylor & “A Lighthouse is what I Hope to Be” by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

I am so surprised I have never heard this beautiful song by James Taylor and that it wasn’t played more when it came out years ago, and isn’t played more now. 
His music got me through high school and it’s still getting me by. Between his melodic harmonies,  beautiful guitar playing, and wisdom filled words…he’s still got it and illustrates how you can get better as you get older

Like James Taylor’s beautiful song,

 I  want to be a lighthouse that shine’s a ray of hopeful light out for all to see…

I want it lead the way to safety and more positive and hopeful paths for others.

I have treaded tragic paths so gruesome it would shock most people and I don’t think the average person could have lived and survived through it. I know they wouldn’t have.

Fortunately I wasn’t made average though, and I am always adapting each day, doing the best with what parameters I am given.

I have lived through a literal hell of health problems, striving for better times while making most of the least, while becoming more.

 I had to become strong, industrious and good at research to find the answers to my medical dilemmas and to get answers on how to find my cure to intractable catamenial epilepsy. There is no cure, but with the right medicine, doctor, diet, sleep and winning attitude, I am doing very well. After all, when you have everything to gain from finding the answers, you look harder and relentlessly. 

 When you do find life changing answers to help yourself, you can also help others with it as well and possibly even make history….which gives me great joy at the mere thought. 

In spite of all the hell and lack of friends throughout my life, who I thought had integrity but found friends who are not genuine when they discover you are “different” from them and don’t like you unconditionally as I do with others.

 I always focused on what my abilities were and all the positive aspects of my life. Being dealt a disability-epilepsy at nine years old; that is all I have known. My best and first friend was blind like Helen Keller, and she was genuine and thoroughly as accepting of me as I was her. I learned qualities like compassion and empathy early though, unlike most kids. 

Those earliest memories helped form my character who us one who sees the beauty in all people.

I continually tried to push to the limits, erasing the word DIS and maximizing the word ABILTIES.

I hope and pray one day my disability will simply fade away like a ship in the bleak of night, passing the lighthouse on by, letting my light shine as it was always supposed to.

I hope one day my light will shine so brilliantly, like an aurora borealis crystal, sparking so bright that people forget and simply don’t care that I was “disabled” at all….but know my special talents far way anything else.

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.

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.

Sunrise Serenade: Drinking great coffee, smelling the fresh, morning air and listening to the birds

Yesterday morning at went out on the balcony with my favorite Starbucks Pike Peak coffee brewed in my Ninja Coffee Bar I bought myself for Christmas. 

(The coffee maker has paid itself in dividends back for the joy that I’ve gotten out of it!)

My air conditioning had been malfunctioning for several days and it was hotter in my house than it was outside actually, and that’s saying a lot for Las Vegas Nevada weather!

Happy to report that two maintenance technicians came over yesterday and fixed it better then it ever worked since living here, thank God.

If you’re an air conditioning repair guy move to Las Vegas, Nevada and you’ll make a lot of money!

I opened the sliding door to my balcony, and to my surprise my weather app was wrong! Accuweather app said it was 90, WeatherBug said it was 77, that’s quite a difference.

Immediately uninstalled AccuWeather because I have to know what the weather is like because I will always be Southern California lady at heart. I simply cannot tolerate high heat so I do everything in the coolest parts of the day. Weather apps like WeatherBug , which is awesome and very accurate, help me plan what I do. It also outlines when the best times to do outdoor activities are, tells you what the allergies are for that day how much allergens are blowing around, and other helpful tips

 Sure enough, I walk outside now my gosh it’s actually nice! (Just goes to show old-fashioned is better and common sense.)

Brave to the world I ventured outside and my pretty cotton housecoat with pockets in it, that covers me all up so I can be seen by my neighbors and the kids going to school…and just sat and listened. No earphones, no nothing but enjoying that moment and all the simple sensory sensations if it all….

I always pray to God the first thing my eyes open and I ruse to meet the day. First thing’s first always. 

I pray that God will show me the way to best utilize the skills and abilities that he blessed me live in ways that will help people enormously. 

God and I are a team as I go through life. He guides me after I ask for the wisdom and insight to be able to see when a prayer was answered. My actions combined with Divine Guidance mark my paths daily. 

Outide in early morning, the mothers were taking their kids to school, as they did, they told me “Good Morning”….

The pigeons were doing there spring summer mating dances tomorrow birds and flight were circling like they were dancing in mid-air.

It was so nice and quiet, with no engine noise from the cars.

Take time to enjoy the sights, smells, and tastes in your days and nights. Absorb them as though you are a Human Sponge.  Notice the small details that might be otherwise overlooked. Pay attention to your surroundings.

It is in the Zest for Living Life that the Greatest Things are Created. When you are inspired, your work will be too.

When $65,000 a year for a drug is applauded : Pharmaceutical Prices & A Disabled Person’s Right To Live in Dignity with All Needs Met

When $65,000 a year for a drug is applauded

http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/03/health/prescription-drug-prices-public-opinion/index.html

Paulette Le Pore Motzko’s Note to Pharmaceutical Companies on Placing People First and Nevada’s Unfair Treatment of People with Epilepsy, Civil Rights & Disabilities 

I wish more pharmaceutical companies had more or a “Triple Win Attitude”: I Win, You Win & Society Wins. Huge multi million dollar companies need to keep ever present the real, flesh and blood people they are developing the drug to help.

They simply can function effectively as a business and still charge less  for the consumer. 

For instance, my medicine for epilepsy called Vimpat that I take is $20 a pill made by UCB. It cost nearly $2,300 a month along with my Tegretol that I take for a complex partial epilepsy. I have Nevada Medicaid and am on SSI, which allows you to make money and collect it, and pays less than SSDI-full disability.  (it also took two and a half years to win with the aid of a social security disability lawyer  too and I had to say goodbye to my alimony from the rocket scientist I was married to for 15 years to get that crappy $728 but my medical is covered. 

Yet after stating all those facts, the state of Nevada doesn’t think anyone who was diagnosed with epilepsy has a medical conditiom or termed disabled, even though the director at the DMV told me I will automatically get a disabled placard when I update my Nevada state ID.

 (I’m still trying to obtain a certified copy of my old marriage license to prove I’m Paulette Le Pore Motzko. That’s a $65 stupid document is so outrageous it is unbelievable. I’ve been divorced from him since 2001 and my name was legally changed in Garden Grove, California in 1986, when I got married.  I’m going to go talk to one of my friends who is a librarian and see if she can get me the silly document free because $65 is a lot of money to prove I’m who I am! I’ve been trying to get that document 3 times now and it is difficult since my CA ID expired on my birthday last August.

Nevada needs to spend more time educating their political leaders about things like crimehuman dignity, the pedestrian fatality rate and placing penalties on drunk drivers and their educating RTC and people who are public servants about various disabilities, NAMELY neurological ones like EPILEPSY. That would use everybody’s time in an effort worth expending time on.

This may be Nevada and it may have the worst weather in the United States, and 60 mile an hour-knock you on your ass dust storms, high fraud rates,  allergies that wont quit due to blowing dust, and vapes and casinos on every corner with few nonsmoking areas other than Starbucks.

But Nevada is still only one state in the USA it still is the United States of America. And as far as I’m concerned as far as I know, in the USA, we all have certain basic rights.

One of those rights is to be treated fairly. Denying people with epilepsy the right to use Paratransit and having the head Federal representative not know what epilepsy even is is a crime.  

That should be against the law and it probably is.

After after the grand negligence that happened to me regarding Paratransit  and the callousness and apathy on behalf of Senator Harry Reid’s office is disgusting.

 It doesn’t reflect great kindly on him.  The irony is Harry Reid can barely see and uses Paratransit himself, so you think he’d be the first understand the meaning of a doctor’s letter when a doctor writes for a patient to take a medication and says you need it to live, which mine has done since age 9.

You think he would understand as well as the governor,  how important it is to look after the safety of people with epilepsy and not allow them to be injured. I was.

 I was talking to Harry Reid about raising the cost of living index to $1200 a month for all people on SSI and SSDI. 

I still have pictures of the first place I lived in when I first moved here.  That horrid $728 a month buys nothing  in terms of living quality and your standard of life. All you have to do is  think and care and be a responsible person realize that along with all inflation and elevated prices going up, the cost of living index for all disabled people  hasn’t been raised in over 20 years.

SSI is $200 less than what California has per month. Who created an SSI (supplementary Social Security) of $728 anyway? A monkey with an abacus?  Everything needs to be updated  to reflect 2017 prices. Make the minimum BE $1000 for God’s sake! Round it up. Turn the insulting, impoverished amount in to something a human being can really spend, not just make due in the real world. $1200 is actually usable and workable  for the average person.

 Anybody who thinks that SSI and SSDI checks are handed on a platter they are not you are sadly mistaken.

Lawyer Bill LaTour won my case in Southern California and I can’t count all of the doctors I went to and specialists and career counselors and all the questions I had to answer and psychological assessments in order to finally present my case. Most who are disabled would rather be working. In the final hearing all of the doctors and the career counselor appeared in a small courtroom and they’re the judge asked me what my name was and after about 5 minutes he reviewed all the evidence presented by every one of the doctors that I had to see you over the course of a year and a half before he finally awarded me ssi. That took a mere five minutes and those were the only words that I other than that. 

You can’t sue the government but you can sue people who work for the government.  And one by one I will if I don’t get my Paratransit FOR MYSELF AND SET A PRECIDENT FOR ALL WHO HAVE EPILEPSY IN THE STATE OF NEVADA. 

After all, I’m the former President and founder of The Epilepsy Connection which was a grassroots organization in Orange County, California  that helped countless people in California and many other states, and three other countries who had no other resources whatsoever. I’m also the former director of the Epilepsy Foundation sub affiliate in Garden Grove, California years ago. 

In other words, I am a catalyst for positive change and I hope to  merge forces with other disabled people making us stronger as a united team.


 I’ve got arthritis in that left ankle that won’t go away, just as my dad was  just about paralyzed in a wheelchair from osteoarthritis  before he died several years ago.

After having a drop seizure- due to being out in 115 degree heat when I shouldn’t have been.  That because I was having problems but two idiot’s went against my epileptologist’s letter stating that. I think that’s a crime isn’t it? 

DAN HOWLAND AND JIM CHAMPOU, THE IDIOTS WHO DIDNT VALIDATE THAT DOCTOR’S LETTER AND THOUGHT DR. EVANGALISTA WROTE IT FOR THE FUN OF IT, INSTEAD TO PREVENT INJURY TO ME.

Maybe no lawyer in Nevada has wanted to take my case YET, IT IS A crime AND A  double crime since Dan Howell and told me he didn’t care about people with epilepsy to my face  and he said he didn’t care about learning about anything to do with them he liked being ignorant. After everything  hits the fan and people pay the price they should have paid a couple years ago but I wasn’t any kind of health condition  to be able  to press charges, I hope he’s fired  and not only that I hope charges are filed on him  for endangerment and that is endangering me.

I believe the max I can do is $10,000  in the state of Nevada for him personally and  also Jim shampoo $10,000 and also Tina Quigley, the head of RTC , who all she could say during our phone conversation was “uh huh” after I said anything.  In other words, she did nothing and could have been forced my Paratransit ID once suck it but she did not. That’s another $10,000.

 They put my life at risk because I was having drop seizures of time and that was written in the letter so that’s called personal injury and I with all the evidence that I can bring which is a hell of a lot of it I call it instant win.

It is the principle here. I am hoping I won’t need to and they will come to their senses. Maybe the  Governor can hear the whole sordid story and make it right trade she seemed like the most level-headed person in the most articulate intelligent person I’ve seen hold office in Nevada so far.

 I think Nevada has some disabled Senators who have disabled minds and need to greatly educate themselves about what all this abilities are an update themselves with 2017.

Civil rights and then do the educate themselves on disabilities that go far beyond physical ones in a wheelchair.

The statistics on disability is there are more people with invisible disabilities like epilepsy than those with more visible ones.

California was better with Paratransit by far.  I had Paratransit in California over 25 years and I come to the 1800’s Wild West High Desert of Nevada and here they turn me down. I called Paratransit once waiting 2 hours and after the two hours the lady said, ” oh didn’t you know? Just because you call Paratransit doesn’t mean it’ll show up!” 

Ignorance again.   

You shouldn’t be a leader in the state if you are igorant in the ways I have seen. Dina Titus, Head of Transportation had no desire to help me get what I was owed as a disabled American citizen.

Nevada Medicaid pays for my medicine now and I hope it always does because it’s the best combination I have ever been on in my now 55 years young.

 

 

Even all that being said Senator Reid doesn’t think I have a disability-isn’the that rediculous? 

I even sent Senator Reid pictures of my medicine and all the vitamins that I take and the doctor’s letter from my specialist who prescribes my medicine and the copy of my medical ID bracelet and he still didn’t think that I was disabled!

 Living in Nevada is like living in the wild west where they think they can do anything. The American with Disabilities Act is something that I know all about  and because I was turned down for Paratransit here I could sue every senator in the entire State and when  because my civil rights were violated and I broke my left ankle as a result of having a drop seizure a year ago and was nearly in power chair after! Was I disabled enough for you then Nevada  huh 7 read  the governor ? Is that what you want to but everybody Wheelchairs and that’s the only kind of stability you think exist in this world ? Wake up  you need to get your head examined and go look at the medical book and read it all of this abilities that exist in this world there quite a lot of them  we have a lot of components to our bodies not just a physical body  without your neurological system you’re nothing you can’t write you can’t speak you can’t do anything.

I now have arthritis in that left ankle, which makes might a personal injury case that I didn’t want come into the state I just wanted a place to live it was cheap that’s it I didn’t come here for the gambling  I don’t drink I don’t smoke I don’t do drugs and I don’t gamble why did I come here for cheap rent that’s it hat’s part of living in Nevada is not something I like but it’s also against my civil rights too. 

I’ll be talking to the governor of Nevada this year about all of those issues as well as others that affect everyone or just same old and about raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled to something that allows them to live in dignity, which the $728 a month does not.

I want to see that all people can afford tm what they need to keep them alive. 

Hear that pharmaceutical companies? 

Remember the human element. 

Remember why you’re developing the medicine in the first place.

 What good  is a fantastic medicine with a high efficiency rate and the low side effect rate and a huge success rate if the patients cannot afford it? I’m asking you that question mark I was made a rocket scientist for 15 years and I’m fairly bright that’s not even logical is it to make the price outlandish.

If drugs are so outrageously priced limiting who can take them, it defeats the purpose why the drug was ever created.

 I wish the scientist who developed the drugs could price the drugs because then they would be priced at something reasonable that makes sense. 

Because people who are scientists creating these compounds to help people would never charge people outrageous prices because they’re more humanitarian in spirit than the simply sales reps promoting the products getting huge commissions driving company cars!

 Let the pharmacology medicine developers help set a price that is more accurate.

 I saw pharmaceutical reps every time I went into one of my neurology offices in Orange off La Veta when I was married years ago.  I think what they do should be against the law because they’re giving doctors Kickbacks to promote drugs. because of that, doctors are  not looking at to the best needs of the patient. The Pharmaceutical reps  are allowed to  dangle money in front of a doctor’s faces and saying over here I’ll give you this money -a bribe.

How in the hell can a good doctor think straight  with the ” Wheeler Dealers” walking around dangling incentives.

Pharmaceutical companies remind me of real estate companies in California. Everybody is so greedy that they have to make “over profit” aking for way more than is affordable for most everyone except millionaires. 

 Medicine companies: Remember the people FIRST. Without people in this world you have nothing. Nothing but dust and a bunch of chemicals a test tube that people NEED.

My phablet  overheated just like I do when I even think about the things that I’ve been through for no good reason.  I almost was history in this town so rather than be history I’m going to make history instead, making it better for everyone.

Still one of the funniest shows ever created Seinfeld

Image photography by Paulette Motzko, PLM Studios, April 2017.

It’s refreshing to watch a show that doesn’t resort to either profanity for laughs or talking about sex or graphic descriptions of body parts as on some of the new site coms.

The talent of all the actors along with great writers make for a show that future generations will be laughing at.

We all need laughter in our lives and humor and levity. It’s good for the body, mind and soul.

Me on my Nanny’s Henry F Miller piano she brought with her from Florida to California when she can to live with us when I was 9 years old. Little would I know how that piano would become my best friend.

I haven’t played this song for some time  since I had my digital Roland 88 keyboard with incredible sampled sounds of a full size concert grand on it. Like many things, it was sold when  moved to Las Vegas. I have often thought of selling this other couch nobody ever sits on and getting a new 88 keyed awesome sampled digital piano with weighed keys. I would have way more FUN with it.

My upright rosewood grand with the dynamic range of a medium size grand piano came with me and sits awaiting my eager hands to play that very song Baby Grand that is the reason I bought the score you see in the picture.

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….

Your Epilepsy News Resource

http://paper.li/PollyMotzko/1356861050#/

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.

Make Every Day a Fiesta!

Even if you’re not celebrating something big, celebrate something very small and almost invisible that no one else would ever notice- but is very special to you. Those things are called things you are thankful for and blessings.

Stages of Our Lives Pass Like Changing Seasons by Paulette Le Pore Motzko New Version 

Above images created by Paulette Le Pore Motzko, Copyright 2016

Written by Paulette Le Pore Motzko.

Copyright February 2017

I accidentally erased the link that was on here going to a blog post called “Stages of Change”, and prior to finding the blog post in the wee hours this morning, I had the idea to write this.

I thought the entire story would be written in an hour or by about 3 p.m. now yesterday afternoon, Las Vegas, NV time. It’s 4:00 a.m. February 28th,  2017 and with a Pentatonix Concert on Neflix playing,  I have been embellishing the post with more images that I feel tell part of the story too and modifying what I wrote.

I hope you will enjoy it. Yesterday was my day to “Get Absorbed in The News Day” writing commentaries. I am an empath in many ways, and can only handle hearing about the news of the world every few days. I would never get anything done if I did otherwise. All I have to do is run into one god-forsaken story about Trump, who’s Triple loser in my book, especially after hearing he made fun of a disabled person. Anyone that would make fun of any kind of disabled person is a pathetic human being. Trump’s animalistic, racist and self demeaning behavior boggles my mind. Yes,  I know he tries to demean other people but all he succeeds and doing it’s just lowers himself to increasing new levels of mediocrity.  I want him impeached to preserve the integrity of the United States as an American citizen. He simply makes us look bad in the eyes of other nations.

Enough of my political view points, that were not in the original post,  but I don’t stand alone in my feelings. 

One of my golden rules in life is to be genuine and totally authentic. People respect that. When it comes to followers and buying followers  I don’t . All mine are real and represent real, living, breathing , wonderful people  who I have impressed somehow, or I’ve inspired, or empowered, made laugh, entertained,  or they look forward to something that I write, my original images,  or they like just me in general and my persona. My followers are real people who follow me  because I am REAL and put on no pretenses. Anything other than that is just fake in my book, and I’m working on two books currently.

 I get asked all the time you want to buy some followers they say why? I have my own real ones from hard work  writing what I feel is good content. I think any industry they call that  organic. As a writer I call it smart because it’s how I know what people LIKE. IF everything is fake and contrived, it doesn’t reflect anything real but it’s just a mere illusion of popularity

  When ever I see Trump’s face, one word comes to mind- impeachment. I sincerely hope that happens so the disasters and hate crimes nationwide he instigated can end. The United States needs to think of our progress rather than regression. I wish Trump wasn’t really and instead a really bad nightmare ,  nut we all wake up and he’s still there unfortunately!
 Like many of my stories, posts and pictures; they are going through a creative evolutionary process, contantly changing or improving, like their creator me! We all change everyday just a little bit, even though we can’t see the changes, we still do. The great thing about that is it we all have a say in how we change,  and in what ways we change. You just have to want to change then catapult your want with action to make it a reality.

Above photo taken by my friend Martha the general manager of The Canonita-Mexico City Soul Food. Photo editing by Paulette Motzko.

Just like the seasons are now changing from winter to spring, this article is changing with every word I write. 

I hope the finished product has you look at not only me in a new way, but life in general in a new way and directs you to a newfound realization of the power you possess in it.

Embrace change. It us the only constant in life.  Those who do the best in life ADAPT.

Much like a surfer on a surfboard riding the wave, those that master the “Art of Living”, ride the wave called LIFE. We can learn from the quick reflexes of the surfer, adjusting what we do in correlation to what’s the way  was coming our way.

When I was younger I hadn’t discovered my full potential yet and didn’t see the world from a big picture vantage point yet. That was to be uncovered and made visible over time. I was a very sick, misunderstood kid that grew up in the 60’s, at a time before the time “bullying” was invented or before people cared to do something about it at least. 

My nanny came to live with us when I was nine, the same age I was diagnosed with epilepsy. The piano she brought with her would soon become my best friend. It took until high school at 14 to be invented for me to know what size your freedom was.  Until the time kids were just too mean spirited stupid to ever give me a chance as human being, let alone as a friend.  I wrote music on that Henry Ford. Miller piano and read lots of cookbooks and passed the time figuring out what I was going to make and cook, analyzing recipes as though it were a novel envisioning  what I’d make  when I grew up and the parties that I would have and how awesome it would be…….

Every day pray and meditate as your 1st thing in the day.  Connect with your Omnipotent Power of the Universe asking for Wisdom and Guidance. I AM CHISTIAN BAPTIZED CATHOLIC, BUT I AM SPIRITUAL IN NATURE. No matter what your faith, place that part of you first and you cannot be steered wrong.

Light an aromatherapy candle and find out how you can tap into what’s inside your SOUL.

 I have always found lighting a candle is a way to connect to a hidden, very special light planted in my soul. 

Chances are, if you try it, you will discover it too.

Before you know it, when you start connecting with your Spiritual Source, you’ll find a light that you can protect outward at the world, and the world will be brighter as result of it. If your light shines brilliantly it’s own special way, the light will never go away as long as the World Turns. If you bring something to the world nobody has ever seen before that has great merit,  you’ll be memorable enough that your memory and good you did will “shine” like the aurora borealis.

The older I get the more I focus on the good I can give rather than what I can get and options and opportunities open like flowers in the Spring.

Stay centered.

Keep your focus on what matters.

Don’t do something just because everybody else is.

Have your own viewpoints and own them.

Write every day, even if you are the only one who reads what you write. 

Remember:  “With a pen,  paper and an idea, I have the world!”

Writing is a way you can connect with your innermost self, your hopes and dreams unfurl as you hold that pen in your hand, or as you type. Whichever method helps you connect better and be more prolific, do it! 


Go after what you really want in life early and do what you, and nobody else was meant to do.

Keep Supporters of Your Dreams Close To You

Photography by Leonardo Valencia, of Paulette Motzko holding one of her Nikons.

Keep Negative and Hurtful People Away From You. You owe it to yourself to have a happy and productive life. Negative people are like a ball and chain who get their enjoyment from dragging you down because they don’t have the initiative, talent or ideas that you do. Repel them like water beads on Vaseline.

Water the Garden of Your Dreams Daily by working on each Project.

Listen to your inner voice, or intuition because it is always right.

Take time for your routine that keeps you most healthy.

If music is a passion of yours, sing a song or put some music out in the universe making your contribution to making a more harmonious world.

Above image photography by Rosie Emberton. Digital Photo Arts by Paulette Le Pore Motzko.

Life is a balancing act composed of spiritual time, personal time, work time, leisure time and whatever other classifications you when to add.


Take time to do self-introspection so you can see how far you’ve come and how far you’ve gone to appreciate Where You Are now.

 Mentor others  so you can help others carry the torch and do things easier than you once did.
Donate your time then to philanthropic things to give back to the world and it will give you more back than you ever dreamed.
Make the most of where you are now. Use the tools you have now, they don’t have to be the best tools but they’re the tools we can afford and use them maximize them and save up for whatever equipment you need to do your job well.
Don’t take the first no for an answer you hear. If you’re not getting what you want with your company go to the corporate level and I guarantee you’ll get what you want.
Aim for your goals like a GPS guidance system guides a Delta rocket to outer space


    I hope you have reading this as much as I have enjoyed sharing my 55 year old wisdom and 20 year old heart with you! 

    Maybe God had in mind me destroying the original post, so I could write this one which is my own, and my brainchild.

    If your life was a movie what would you name it?

    Who are the star players in it and why?

    Do you think your life would be a drama, comedy, thriller or family friendly rated G?

    Interesting points to ponder.

    My mom taught me as a young child of four years old but I so she ate it with it soon I could become like period when you start thinking that way you’ll rethink the people you associate with period sometimes inadvertently we can pick up people’s vernacular and word choice comma without even knowing it period sometimes people’s habits creep up and before you know it you’re doing what they’re doing. What are some of the people in your life that you value and why are they the star players and what about them is special and helps you become the person that you were meant to become?

    I’ll be working on my answers to all these questions and I will post them when I’m done.

    Here’s a huge and warm welcome and thank you to all my new followers on Totally Inspired Mind too.

    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!

    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.

    If we make up our minds that this is a drab and purposeless universe, it will be that, and nothing else. On the other hand, if we believe that the Earth is ours, and the Sun and Moon hang in the sky for our Delight, there will be gladness in the fields….

    Helen Keller Says: “If we make up our minds that this is a drab and purposeless universe, it will be that, and nothing else. On the other hand, if we believe that the earth is ours, and that the sun and moon hang in the sky for our delight, there will be joy upon the hills and gladness in the fields because the Artist in our souls glorifies creation. Surely, it gives dignity to life to believe that we are born into this world for noble ends, and that we have a higher destiny than can be accomplished within the narrow limits of this physical life.”

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate

    Http://www.TotallyInspiredMind.com

      

    I was trying to put into words the term for when you do something just because it is right but not because it EASY or THE STATUS QUO.  A fellow writer and blogger friend of mine called it “moral courage” the other day.

    We are all connected on this big, water covered planet we call earth. There is only one of them, so if we mess it up or the people who inhabit it, we never have a chance to go back and fix it. Life on earth as we know it is a “one shot deal” so we better get it right the first time and quit living as though everything is expendable.

    image

    We have a throwaway society anymore and people and the apathy towards people in general has gone along with the trash we throw away. It shouldn’t be and I am not saying that all people are apathetic, because of course they are not. There are just many who could do far more than they do for others they meet in everyday life.

    Once the water systems are polluted, what do we do?

    image

    Just these thoughts are good ones to ponder in terms of how we should be making sure there are no oil spills killing our fish and wildlife and ruining the water.

    image

    Human beings have a lot in common with the earth in that they are both mostly composed of water. Without it, all life ceases to be.

    What about bombs and the warfare, chemical or otherwise? Since I was married to a rocket scientist and he was the master of logic and science; since we were married for fifteen years, I chose to take with me the best of what I learned and the best of our memories together. Why throw a bomb that will kill thousands of innocent women, children, and ruin the land around it, making it impossible to plant anything-just to wipe out that one “target”? It isn’t logical to me.

    image

    image

    image

     

    Why not find and train more people who speak the languages of the countries we are fighting right now, or at least have our military people in like Afghanistan and Syria?

    Try something you haven’t tried before.

    Success models are made up of prototypes that worked. Once you know the model, you can strive to create one that works as well or supersedes it.

    How about our budget that the so-called great leaders in the United States of America have concocted?

    Above wallpaper image from Zedge.

    There has not been any trace of anyone from the two Bush’s to Reagan who has ever tried to come up with a budget that would start paying off the debt already incurred. Obama keeps spending and China owns more of America. It’s like a dirty American secret that nobody wants to take accountability for. 

    Will our next president of the United States make sure the priorities are in the right places? I certainly hope so, but rather than seeing human beings who invented great leadership skills, I see Trump as an overgrown brat who tragically never grew up. I see Clinton with major trust issues going in the office, after breaching national securiy. Wish you did with a lot more than just sharing emails! People lost lives because of those emails and that cannot be overstated.

     I haven’t sat through one debate becauase it is not one by true definition.  A debate is where people are asked intelligent, hard-hitting questions and they answer them , and an intelligent  fashion .  Trump  and Clinton are good at insulting each other and name calling and badgering. I had little tolerance for badgering in elementary school and I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior now.

    Is there some kind of moral conduct and we can demand that of our presidential candidates?
    It’s almost as though you need a referee make in a boxing match.

     

    ‘ve never seen a time in our political history where we’ve needed in an actual referee like it’s a boxing match verses to great minds talking about what they would each do. We never had that in the election from the get-go

    I am not sure what kind of actual good they can accomplish, since they are not showing the best of who they are when that is exactly what they should be doing!

    This is idiocy and being that I was born and raised in The United States and never want to see the day when China owns America.

    What is going on is a vicious cycle of stupidity, borrowing on China’s credit and we are looking the fool in the eyes of other countries.

    Before I get on a this one topic alone, that infuriates me at the stupidity and complete lack of responsibility on the parts of all who work for the government for not prioritizing paying the debt of the USA.

    I hope I see the day when a budget is created and adhered to. I hope I see the day when we have a new president who has one known social security number, and stands for things that benefit Americans instead of big businesses.

    I hope I see the day when you can get a job in America without having to know Vietnamese or Spanish, when it is America you are trying to get the job and not Vietnam or Mexico.

    image

    I hope I see the day when people try to be more kind and tolerant of each other’s differences.
    Movie makers, producers and directors put positive and empowering messages out there instead coming up with a crime show give goofballs and psychos ideas to blow things up and kill people in movie theaters. Values can and could dictate our society, if we all wanted that badly enough.

    I hope I see the day when our president realizes that every action has a chain reaction be it a bomb, something that is not needed that tax payer’s end up paying for. China is buying more of America up every day as the imaginary credit card is used.

    They print up so much “play money” that I don’t think they understand in the real world, for you and I and everyone else, we all have to pay our debts. Why isn’t the White House and those who write the checks accountable as we are?

    Breaking laws to fit personal agendas doesn’t make me proud of the current leadership. Can’t we as Americans demand to see how the money is spent? They are working for the American people and are supposed to be our ambassadors.

    image

    What are your major concerns for our country? What would you like to see happen in the next year in America?

    Please Mr. President Obama, well you’re still president- open your eyes, wake up and be accountable for what you spend regarding our country.

    Students arming Syrian terrorist and creating Isis why don’t you look at all the veterans who have no homes?

    What did you think of raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI and SSDI?

    Why don’t you see that every American in every state can live in dignity and peace and have all their Corporal needs met before you think of taking money we don’t have and giving it to other countries?
    NOW is a good time to create and adhere to a workable budget, not just hype.

    Start caring and acting responsibly and care about America being owned my Americans and how we take care of it now is the gift we will hand down to our children.

    Caroline Myss says : “We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds – the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.”

    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.

    Helen Keller Says: “Three things I thank God every day of my life for:

    Deep thanks that he has set in my darkness the lamp of faith.

    Deep, deepest thanks that I have another life to look forward to–a life joyous with light and flowers and heavenly song.”

    Literature is My Utopia….. Helen Keller

    Helen Keller Says: “Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.”

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.helen.keller.daily

    I must agree with Helen Keller because books have been my friend since very young and I think they just might always be.
    That’s a look at the  many books in my library I see and Nicole great ideas and great stories great poetry from some of the greatest people who ever lived and still live. I’m really never alone in a sense when I am in the company of some of the greatest people and extraordinary minds in the world.

    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.

    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.

    I appreciate all that I am & all that I have. Stop focusing on what you do not have. Wayne Dyer

    Wayne Dyer says : “I appreciate all that I am and all that I have. Stop focusing on what you do not have, and shift your consciousness to an appreciation for all that you are and all that you do have.”
