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.

Where have you always wanted to go that you’ve never been to YET?
It doesn’t have to be fancy place, it doesn’t have to be far away place, it just has to be a special place to you -and only you alone.
Feel free to make comments here if you like.
….not to mention the incredible CGI animation crew that it took to choreograph and create this production.
Turn your magic on.
Everything you want is a dream away.
Under this pressure, this weight-
We are diamonds.
I feel my heart beating….
Cuz you make me feel-like I’m alive again.
Awesome and deep words with a lot of meaning.

I would have more followers but I hear there’s no “follow me” button. I will be working on enhancing the features on the site to make that possible.
The great news is that my followers are tried-and-true, they are genuine, they are intelligent extraordinary individuals whose talents even defy my own comprehension at times. What I envisioned when I created this site in 2012 has become literal reality that is even superseded what my vision was of the best for the site. Every follower every reader has come back like a magnet attrated for all the right reasons -because I am genuine and as what am I long-standing Facebook friends Maria Lourdes Lipardo told me-“you are so transparent”. At the time she said it I didn’t quite know what that meant. Now years later I call it a high compliment.
The world is full of far too many Yes Men comply or go along with a crowd. I’ve never been that kind of person I always have been an individualist.
Because I was misunderstood as a child, I am the quickest to try and understand others, and another person’s point of view. Matters to me to understand communication is Paramount. Just as I was telling a nice lady at the station casino Grand Cafe earlier last night:
We’re all connected on the planet no matter what race color creed. It really doesn’t matter what our faith is but that we believe in something greater than ourselves we treat others with dignity. We don’t need to be like one another, life would be boring if we were. We can learn from each other’s differences and grow as people.
The sun is coming up here in Las Vegas now when I can see the white flowers on the huge Bush surrounding my picture windows blooming. I live upstairs and like it because I’m the one making the noise and its private and I can have a garden on my balcony and go out there anytime and be in my “desert oasis” I created over time.
As I was looking at my statistics here I noticed the atlas of the world filling in with the readership from Canada and many other countries that never read my blog prior.
Makes me a really feel gratified to know that the many hours that I invest in this site is appealing to all people and has become quite universal.
Thank you for all your contributions and comments app for putting a smile on my face everyday.
May every single person who reads this be blessed.

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.

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.

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.
May 31st, 2017 at 2:48 a.m.
Below is a chaplet of St. Therese.
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.

When $65,000 a year for a drug is applauded
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 crime, human 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 non–smoking 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!”
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.

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.

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.

Keep your focus on what matters.
Don’t do something just because everybody else is.
Have your own viewpoints and own them.

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

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.

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.
