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!

When you’re over 50 years old as I admit I am, you become a walking piece of History.
I remember Walter Cronkite’s telecast on Channel 2 News on a black tube TV when I was a kid announcing the first lunar Landing.
I remember looking up things in the library system and using the Dewey Decimal System.
Are there any kids today that would know how to look something up in the library in the Dewey Decimal System?
If they had to do a research paper to get a Ph.d would they know how to do it? Or would they just sit there talking into Google all day?
Did you ever think that in the time that you told all your friends what you’re doing on Facebook you could have done something really cool instead?
When I was in high school I looked up things quite often in the Encyclopedia Britannica, and I always found the information I needed, with the help of some great, extraordinary Librarians with Master’s degrees in Library Science, rather than using my Vocal Search that I use daily on my Galaxy Note 4 phablet.
Technology has its place and the incredible technologies we possess enable to do things faster than we ever dreamed and information is accessed at a rate that is almost abnormal.
Instead of parents reading to their children, teaching them phonetics as my mom did me, and exposing them to reading books, and exposing them to new ideas and helping them become more well-rounded human beings, quite often a parent in 2018 will stick a smartphone in the kids hands at an unusually early age.
Unfortunately this doesn’t give any kind of bonding at all for the child and the parent gets an easy time out but the child is greatly deprived of the kind of attention that old-school parenting and reading and nurturing gives.
I see babies in strollers basically raised by apps or babysitters and not by the parent learning any kind of language skills whatsoever which is really sad and pathetic compared to what it used to be. The sad thing is the kind of talking I hear a lot of parents say is simply “shut up” so you wonder where the kid turns out to be a real loser later in life if he doesn’t have any positive role models to encourage him or her.
Watch what you say around children because they absorb it like a sponge and they will live up to your words.
Spend more time talking to your children and your family and really spending quality time with them. After all, they won’t be around forever.
Here’s the test to see if your addicted to the internet.
Remove Facebook and Twitter off your Smart device and free up all the space on it. Now watch how much time you just gave Yourself by doing that!
Just think about all the cool software you can put on your smartphone that does something really awesome with the 4GB Facebook takes for the app and the messenger.
Now ask your absolute best friends to share cell phone numbers with those friends that you called friends and see how many really share the number.
I was on Facebook 10 years and maybe a dozen gave me their cell phone number out of 1000!!!!
So in retrospect I was really wasting my time wasn’t I?
You want to have high quality friends even if it’s only 5 of them rather than 5,000 you don’t even know.
If you’re brave and courageous enough to remove those apps off your device and you don’t feel any kind of remorse or anything else once they’re off you probably weren’t addicted and it’s just something you did as a hobby.
If you noticed you feel anxious, and it kind of bugs you haven’t not having the networking sites there, go ahead and stick them back on.
Watch it though, Facebook and Twitter full of a lot of people doing a lot of nothing substantial that truly matters.
Give yourself a certain amount of time on them then happily walk away, and then get off of it and go do something else.
I call it be out with life in the living not behind a monitor or a cell phone
Make sure we don’t replace people with robots and take the very technology that we created to make our life as human beings easier and instead minimize human being’s ability to think, reason and to communicate in a normal way in the real world.
Do something wonderful that you’ve been wanting to do for a long time but you haven’t had the chance.
For every hour that you’re doing computer work get away from it for an hour or more.
Life’s too great to just simply look at computer screens.
There are a few simple guidelines I operate by in life and some of them are:
Put Integrity and value first, no matter what anybody else does.
If you’re in business don’t be afraid to turn jobs down that would undermine your integrity or would be beneath what you represent.
Fine tune your game plan every day.
Be a voracious reader and lifelong learner.
If you wonder how some thing is done, do research and then find out how to do it. Then, if you really want to do something cool, show someone else how to do it afterwards. You might learn to do it so well that you are able to mentor someone else in the future!
Spend time in nature or at a minimum sunshine everyday. If you don’t have sunshine and the weather is dismal or rainy, then put on nature sounds for listen to the rain outside your window. Open the window slightly so you can hear it. Nature sounds are calming because we’re connected to them.
Exercise and spend time building your balance, stamina, and concentration through exercises like yoga and Tai Chi.
Keep only quality people around you who represent your ideals and ethical beliefs.
Try to make as many voice-to-voice phone calls as you possibly can instead of texting. You will find that you’re going to be building more quality relationships because you’re going to hear vocal intonation that you wouldn’t have heard otherwise. It’s a much more human, highly personal way to communicate too- the way we did things before cell phones were invented! Another Fringe benefit that will blend over into other areas of your life, is that you’ll have fewer distractions while you work on more important projects.
The satisfaction from communicating in a more old school way and avoiding some of the new School Technology is incredible. It will make you feel more relaxed and less like a tech geek.
Try to minimize multi-tasking, and instead focus on quality, quality and more quality. Work on one specific thing at a time and keep your concentration level high into the best that you’re able.
I went to the evening maas at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic Church in Las Vegas.
It was wonderful to see the smiles of the sweet little children and song all the beautiful Christmas songs with everyone.
I then went to The Grotto, at The Golden Nugget across the street and enjoyed seeing my friends who work there, and remembered me.
I made a new friend wit a retired gentleman from Hawaii and even though both of us were sitting at different tables, we found enough in common that the two tables became my table and we thanked God for small and big blessings and meeting one another too.

Below is a photo of me, Paulette Motzko at Weera Thai from last night, December 19th, 2017. I discovered this awesome Thai Restaurant when I went to go get my new glasses and Eyeglass World yesterday afternoon. I also discovered a great new place to get my hair done too and I made some new friends while I was at it. Mary my hairstylist, was also from California was one new friend and a wonderful, sweet handsome engineer was the second and one of my highlights of my year!
I was blessed all the way around and saved $200 on my two pair of progressive bifocals by not going to Sears Optical.
I hope you make the remaining days in 2017 memorable and very special.
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.

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?

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 mindactive…and they did.
She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her andshesmiledasshereadeachstory.
I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about herliferecalling memories of when she wasyounger.
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.
In any country in the world you can go to http://www.ewtn.com and view the station live even if you don’t have a TV you can watch it.
There are masses, prayers, rosaries and all kinds of inspirational programming for adults, young people and kids.
Below image from Zedge.
Even if you are not a prayerful person, or you’ve never been baptized before, or even if you are Jewish, Protestant or Muslim or Buddhist or whatever your religion might be, turn it on anyway. You just may enjoy it once you shut off your preconceived ideas about it.
Below image from Zedge.
We have a commonality we share simply as human beings with the potential to believe. We all have souls that need a faith based life.
When we are companions with Jesus, our path is paved in gilded walk ways we only need open the communication line to reach HIM. That is what prayer is to me….

We’re the same no matter what race we are or what we believe in, or what we say our religion is. We’re people and we can benefit from sharing, and caring and praying and finding the time TO MAKE FAITH FIRST AND THE REST WILL BE BLESSED.
If I wrote my entire name, complete with my middle name, confirmation name, maiden name and then married name it would look something like this….
Paulette Ann Therese Le Pore Motzko.
I was confirmed in 2001 after reading prayers of my Nanny’s and seeing a St. Therese chaplet advertised in the church bulletin.
I sent for it and began saying the 24 Glory Be To The Father prayers, (one for each of the 24 years she lived), asking her to carry my intention’s to the Throne of God like a bouquet of sweet roses. Roses started appearing in places where no roses grew and always when I asked for something, or the prayer would be answered.
That’s when I wanted to become confirmed, adding Therese to my name as a testimony to her influence in my life, which was very late for any Catholic. I never cared about what any one else did, but always stayed true to myself and genuine of heart. My Mother was my Sponsor with the Bishop. Those photos are stellar to look back on today.
Even if you’re not Catholic but Christian, Muslim, Jewish or any other faith; there is great merit to be gleaned in St. Therese’s wisdom-filled words.
Make the things you’re involved with in life be positive chain reactions.
Make people glad they know you.
Don’t be manipulative.
Don’t be a user.
Be a giver.
Don’t look for something every time you do something – good or positive for someone for no reason.
When you give someone a gift that’s what that means – it’s a gift. You’re not looking for something in return. If you are looking for something in return, then that means you are manipulative and you’re doing it because you expect something- and it’s not a gift it all is it?
Make your intentions genuine.
Have big picture ideas where you see the big picture of the entire world and much as the nose on your face.
Shoot for longevity in the projects you’re working on.
Genuinely try and help every client, as unique a’s they are.
When you open your mind and think of opportunities and what you can give, and ways you could help each client—great things happen.
Don’t compare ourself to what everyone else is doing. Think outside the box and think for yourself. Expand on your ideas.
If all you do is follow others, you could be following mediocrity! You want to be the one that leads the way to new, brighter Horizons!
Opportunities will arise that will appear as though if by Magic. I am a very spiritual, intuitive, Christian lady; I know that “magic” is GOD.
Blessings will surface effortlessly when you have your mind off the dollars you’re getting for the job. Instead, focus on building lasting relationships and building in creating extraordinary projects that lead to recurring work and passive income.
Life is way more than quick payoffs.
Success isn’t measured by how much money you have in the bank but rather what kind of human being you are and what your value system is. You can make good money and add value to other people’s lives and enjoy doing it. All those things are possible for you and I. You have to give it all some serious thought though, with no distractions.
Everything you do in life builds your reputation, and from your soul, your mind and attitude, your heart and your brain- your reputation will follow you the rest of your life and each positive, proactive action carves your reputation.
Do exemplary things.
Don’t be afraid of hard work because there is a huge payoff that will help more than you awaiting you.
“If I regarded my life from the point of view of the pessimist, I should be undone. I should seek in vain for the light that does not visit my eyes and the music that does not ring in my ears. I should beg night and day and never be satisfied. I should sit apart in awful solitude, a prey to fear and despair. But since I consider it a duty to myself and to others to be happy, I escape a misery worse than any physical deprivation.”
A copy of my Christmas card this year old had photographed by Nicole, one if the talented photographers at The J.C. Penny Photography Studios.
I took a photo of my Christmas carday and added text with a photo editor, transforming it into a Christmas card I can send the world!
Some of my home bake shop for the holidays ….
Wherever your friends and family are…wish them live and joy and remember what the holiday really is all about ……
The best gifts don’t come from under a tree but are in the hearts and souls of loving friends and family far and near and friends who are family by definition .
Bake or make something very special for a few people in your life…
Include the recipes and watch what happens . ..
Have a Christmas Tea
Enjoy a Christmas Picnic outdoors go somewhere so you can hear birds chirping in enjoying nature and great company and fantastic company. A beautiful and scenic place relatively close to you does sets the scene-and bring a nice pic-nic basket withave dishes, silverware and plates and watch the experiences that await you!
For 2017 I want more quality and create great times with all the people who matter most to me…..and to enjoy what I already own more.
Thank you to the over 70 new followers this month on TotallyInspiredMind.com.

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
Inspiring workplaces that are conducive to concentration
Special music playlist and help bring out the best in your artwork. This could be writing, this could be photography, this could be cooking or painting or some other art form.
The special place that everytime you go there you meet someone extraordinary. I have several places like that and I don’t even question what happens I just know it happens. Will meet someone who is absolutely extraordinary every time I go to this certain location. If you pay attention you’ll find then you can maximize the positives in your world. Just pay attention and follow your instincts and usually always steered in the right direction.
And lastly I do a lot of meditation everyday I’m prayer and centering thought hoping to create something I feel give something back to the universe, and will last long after I touched the face of God.

It’s a learning curve when you’re a writer or a photographer or an artist it would never put you in the right frame of mind, and helps you create the best that is in your soul- then do it.
“Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it, How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness.” Eckhart Tolle Image Photographed by Paulette L Motzko, PLM Studios
When was the last time that you looked up in the sky and saw something beautiful, and you knew that there was a God who made it all?
You knew that the same God that made that sun rise or sun set made you as extraordinary too.
That Omnipotent Presence speaks through Nature to me.
Everyday there occasions where if you look, you’ll be able to see signs of Hope, signs Joy, signs of courage and of inspiration.
When was the last time that you saw something that made you realize there was a God and that great things are in your reach?

This is a work-in-progress folks. I’m still going through photographs that were my mother’s and taking pictures of them one by one and adding them to this post. After all the pictures are added then I’ll add text to it. Rather than not publish it and keep it private like I had, I thought I would just Post-it and let you guys enjoy it while I’m building it.
“One aspect of your life may be bad, but all your ingredients are not in. Remember, a little baking soda can make a huge difference in a cookie recipe. Just a little break, just one person, just one idea, just one touch of God’s favor can turn the bitter into the sweet, sorrow into Joy, the mourning into dancing.”
-Joel Osteen from his phenomenal book- It’s Your Time.
Last night, before I went to bed I picked up Joel Osteen’s book in large print edition called it’s your time I got it from the library.
I absolutely love the title on it and under the title was printed “Activate Your Faith, Achieve Your Dreams and Increase God’s Favor Now. That’s before I even knew about his book called “I Declare” which I discovred from some pins on Pinterest.
I would recommend getting both of them. His metaphors are fresh and inventive and creative and it’s just exactly what I needed and was “the missing ingredient” if you will, and the “recipe” for my life of this week after losing my mother on the 5th.
It’s wonderful how he says “it’s not one isolated event that determines your destiny. All the ingredients arent in in yet, comparing our lives to a recipe with different experiences as the ingredients.
We have different experiences we go through in life that make the complete picture.
So sometimes, the best ingredients, like it’s in a chocolate chips in a chocolate chip cookie recipe are saved for last.
I know it’s very difficult for me at this time because I haven’t even gone to the funeral yet for mom, and another that put both their ashes together in a military cemetary. I will get through it and I will not be alone.
And I know that it sure as the chapter closes of my mother’s sweet, wonderful, forever misses life, other chapters are opening on my life that will take me in new, positive directions…but it is hard now.
God bless all who read my words all over the world! .

I was a caregiver for my sweet mother Ramona Lea Le Pore who on the last decade of her life was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
My sister in law contacted me to yell me mom has a tumor on her kidney and is now dying.
I knew the time would come when mom would leave this earth and touch the face of God, being reunited with dad in heaven, but I wasn’t prepared for so sudden of tragic news.
In my old kitchen drinking tea with mom after making dinner
As long as I am alive, mom’s name will be in the prefaces of the books I will write, and so many creative things my mother helped show me how to do by believing in me: piano playing, cooking, poetry, lyric writing and singing.
She was my cheerleader, my best friend, my confidant and encouraged my creativity. I miss hearing her voice and laughter.
She was the most appreciative person I ever knew or will know.
That’s why it was a joy to do anything for her like cook her favorite meal.
Mom and I in the 16 x 20 photo to the right on my desk last Christmas 2015.
Little would I know that the photo I created to immortalize a stellar moment in time would be the only vestige of my mother to keep me going. With no ability to make phone calls or talk to her the photo was and is all I have.
Mom and dad when dad was in The Air Force
I had been thinking of mom all week and just feeling something strange like an inner voice telling me mom might not have much longer to live. This morning I looked up at the 16 x 20 mural I had made of mom and I happy in Huntington Beach, CA and am happy I immortalized the moment.
Mom sitting across from me happy on a beautiful southern California day at Ruby’s Diner.
Mom from the time I was 4 years old read to me and taught me phonetics, opening my eyes to wider worlds. She was a visionary before that word was popular.
Mom taught me to see the beauty in the simple pleasures of life….in flowers, nature and taught me to cherish people and take care of the things you own-and in that order of priority.
Mom loved being useful and when she cared about you, she would go to the ends of the earth to make you happy. If you complimented something she might give it to you!
The photo I took from the wall that was cut from a 16 x 20 that survived a fire. Much like my mother, the photo was resilient and a survivor.
This photo that’s on my upright grand piano and a crucifix that belonged to Nanny my grandmother are all I took when I was told “take what you want from mom’s stuff.”
Mom was alive but with Alzheimer’s disease and if she didn’t put it in my hand I wasn’t going to take it. I wanted to be remembered for what I gave her instead of what I took from her.
Hearing the birds singing their morning song at 4:46 a.m. I am going to wrap this up by saying hug those around you who you care about. Live life so you have no regrets and give more than you take. I sincerely tried to do just that with my mother but I will miss her terribly. Her smile was like the sun to me.
Please pray for my mother and family and I. Thank you.

Julianna Snow’s Light will never ever grow dim. I am saddened that the world will not be graced by her presence any longer. For never having met her, she touched my heart and soul in a way nobody has.”
Paulette Motzko author/blogger at The Red Rock Resort recently
In my humble abode with books and teapots in view.
Of all the photos I created, this one reminds me of Julianna Yuri Snow the most.
God bless your wonderful, sweet courageous soul Julianna Yuri Snow.
You touched my heart and I never got to meet you.
Your story touched me and because I am a caring lady, tears are streaming down my cheeks, which us not what you wanted, but I love tea parties too and only wished you could have experienced many MORE of them!
My most sincere condolences to the extraordinary Snow Family. You are as courageous as your sweet daughter, just in a different, supportive way.

“The next time you have a 33 minute commute or have a long bus ride like I do quite often, or have something that you’re doing that you want to really hear something empowering and extraordinary, listen to Les Brown’s words.
He has a wonderful way of taking the experiences that he’s gone through in life transforming them into fresh metaphors and comparisons that empower the world. I guarantee you’ll walk away feeling better and learning after investing the 33 minutes here. I hope that you enjoy all of the videos that I put up today on Totally Inspired Mind. along with all of the pictures and stories that I write.
Thank you so much for tuning in. And a warm welcome to all of the many new followers this week! Totally Inspired Mind is approaching 3000 followers now.”
” Jim Carrey is a Visionary and uses very empowering visualisations to have propelled himself from being homeless – but with very detailed dreams and goals of what he wanted his life to be- to living his dreams and a success story.
He now speaks in front of large groups of people at universities giving them advice on how to live, and telling them what he’s learned.
After you finish speaking he makes people feel like they can do anything- and with the right mindset you can.
You know you’re a leader and you know you’re doing something right when you can show others new ways of thinking and show them that they possessed inside what they sought all along.
I know as a piano teacher, I know a student will do well just because they have music inside their soul; it’s like its hard-wired in their system. I already know the students going to be successful before I even start teaching them.
What an awesome 25 minute video from the Believe channel by Evan Carmichael.
The first presenter speaks of the key points of communication and he uses an acronym “HAIL” which stands for Honesty, Authenticity , Integrity and Love.
Very well done! Those are huge things I value in life. ALL THE PEOPLE I ASSOCIATE WITH MUST possess those qualities. That is a prerequisite with me.
If they do not, I simply don’t associate with them.
Life is too short to hang with crows or buzzards when you can soar with the eagles instead.
After YOU ARE 18 years old, you have the right to choose who you associate with.
If your family member is malicious or doesn’t have your best interest in mind, or is just psychologically messed up and causes havoc in your life– you simply don’t need to be around them.
I have a few family members like that. You can’t exchange family members like a bad poker hand, but you can simply walk away from the game and let them play by themselves.
When I was about 6 years old I remember mom saying ” who you are around is what you become.”
So, when looked at things in that context, becomes very easy to weed people out of your life and be more selective.
For instance, when I used to do gardening in my last house in Orange before my divorce, I remember putting this stuff called Preen my flower box with the geraniums, gladiolus, daffodils and Lily of the Nile. It helped to prevent weeds. Yes prevent them. It made it so I didn’t have to sit there breaking my back tending the soil the next day. Even though the stuff cost a fair amount of money, all I had to do was put it on once a month and it saved me work.
Bad people are like weeds and they can infiltrate your life with snuggled edges, and pollute your mind with bad thoughts, colorful language that you really shouldn’t be using, because when you’re around someone that does something over and over again it tends to rub off on you.
If you set high standards in your life and associate with flowers who help you bloom too, the garden called your life will always bloom.
If you compare bad people to weeds- people who possess the opposite of the qualities outlined in the acronym HAIL, it becomes very easy to not let them take over your pretty flower garden… otherwise known as your world. Your life, like a flower garden, blooms in direct proportion to what you plant.

Let every one of the people in your life bloom on their own. People who share a common denometer with you, naturally help you bloom to the most of your ability…because they are blooming themselves and are happy with where they are in life. Conversely, people who aren’t happy in life, and who only bring negative things to the forefront, are people who will usually try to drag you down to their low existence.
Don’t let them do it.
The most important things to me are honesty, integrity, tactfulness, of course- because you don’t just want to say anything that comes to your mind in the sake of being honest to somebody.
All these things put together build your reputation. Your reputation is what you’re going to leave when you’re not here anymore and that’s what people will remember most about you.
It’s not how many cars you have in the driveway, it’s not how fancy your Gucci bag is, but simply how you treat other people and how you made them feel when they were around you.
Those things form who you become in life and who people know you to be.
That really is what matters to me in life. I hope you enjoy this YouTube video I’ve got to find out how to reach Evan Carmichael that does all of these extraordinary “Believe” YouTube videos because they are the best I’ve ever seen.
You have my Paulette Le Pore Motzko Seal of Approval on that Mr Evan Carmichael.
I’ve would love to meet Evan Carmichael one day and congratulate him on an outstanding collection of YouTube videos.
I don’t know how he does it but the finish product is pretty extraordinary.
With my blog Totally Inspired Mind I wanted to contribute something extraordinary and put it out of the universe and then get other like-minded people to join it. It started with a vision and then it became reality in a few hours when I created the blog in a hotel room. Now five years later about a hundred countries read this and now I am going to monetizing it. Currently my payment is sharing what I feel us quality content that is remembered and shared.
I aspire to communicate using the HAIL principles outlined in this YouTube video of honesty, authenticity, integrity and love always.

This is on the inside cover of a book that I carry around with me every day and say certain portions of it that I’ve marked with a Post-It notes called “Handle with Prayer” by Alan Cohen.
I found my copy for a dollar fifty at a book sale in a Friends of The Library sale in southern California, with coffee stains all over the cover and scribbles on the inside, but I didn’t care. I could see the merit of the wonderful book without even reading it. One’s trash is another treasure.
The cover was beat up and damaged so I covered it with cat stickers because if I ever had a pet again it would be a cat. The stickers give me joy, make the cover look a little better and strike up conversations from passers by who see me reading it.
It’s published by Hay House Publishers.
I recommend it to anybody.
It’s a fantastic book then we’ll have you thinking in more positive ways and transforming your ideas about prayer, God, what you can do and accomplish and a host of other things.
