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.

 Sign and Share Tom Steyer’s Petition to Impeach Donald Trump: https://action.needtoimpeach.com/t4-img?sc=fbs

I already signed this existing petition which allows you to voice your opinion about how Trump is handling things as President. 

It’s all done digitally and takes about 3 minutes to sign digitally.

1 million signatures are needed so share it everywhere if you feel strongly about Freedom, the Integrity of our people as American citizens, and want to see that our children grow up an environment where they look up to their elders and are not disgusted by them instead.

Give me long enough and I can usually find the answer to most anything.

 I’m kind of like a white paper in writing, in that I try tout find the answer or solution in most every situation, finding positive solutions to problems or simply enhancing the quality of people’s personal and work lives.

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.

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.

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.

She believed she could and so she did

This is for all you ladies out there. How many of you ladies envisioned yourself doing something and then you worked as hard as you possibly could on it, and then you succeeded and you triumphed?
I’m sure you felt like you’re just climbed Mount Everest and you were looking down at the scenic Countryside below you.

I know I felt that way more than once in my life.

What things did you do to help you accomplish what you were shooting for?

Can you share some of your inside tips for success with all the other ladies we’re reading this right now?
This inquiring mind would love to know how you did what you did, and how you stayed motivated until you reach your ultimate goal.

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.

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.

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

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

Make your intentions genuine.

Be sincere.

Have integrity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Life is way more than quick payoffs.

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

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

Do good. 

Do great.

Do exemplary things.

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

Women must be still as the axis of a wheel in the midst of her activities; that she must be the Pioneer in achieving this Stillness….

Quotes About Purpose

​Quotes about Purpose

Written and Compiled by Paulette Le Pore Motzko.

All images photographed and created by Paulette Le Pore Motzko, PLM Studios Copyright March 2017

March 22nd 2017

As far as we can discern, the whole purpose of human existence is the Kindle a light in the darkness of my being. –

Carl G Jung 1875 – 1961. Memories, Dreams, Reflections.

Men’s Perfection would be the Fulfillment of his end, and his end would be Union with his maker. William James 1842 to 1910.

A good cause makes a stout heart and a strong arm. – Thomas Fuller 1654 – 1734.

The purpose of life is undoubtedly to know oneself. We cannot do it unless we learn to identify ourselves with all that lives. The sum total of that life is God. Hence the necessity of realizing God living within every one of us. The instrument of this knowledge is boundless, selfless service. – Mohandas K Gandhi. In Mahedev Desai, the Diary of Mahedev 1958

Everything living strives for wholeness.- Carl G Jung 1875 – 1961 from on the nature of Dreams 1945

Making a chief design and a great business, not to be rich and great but several live in this world as thou mayst reasonably believe that has got with a friend. Thomas Fuller 1654 to 1734. Intraductio ad Prudentum, 939, 1731

Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, and which you can walk with love and reverence. Henry David Thoreau. 1817 to 1862. From his journal October 18th 1855.

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….

Paulette Motzko’s Writing Books  Recommendations and Pathways to Inspiration

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

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

Wallpaper Image from Zedge.com.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When was the last time that you Empowered Someone Else and Truly Helped Them? Share Your Story.

Share your story about you how you recently empowered someone else to do something they didn’t know they had the ability to do. Don’t ever just compare yourself with what other people do. Don’t be the status quo. Everybody was jumping off a cliff would you jump with them?

Just because everybody is doing something stupid doesn’t mean you have to do it too?

Sometimes what the majority does isn’t exactly the best thing to do, it just may be the easiest thing to do or the lazy thing to do. What gives you the most feeling of being rewarded or at least where I’m concerned, is to do the right thing. Sometimes you’re the only one that does the right thing but that’s okay; we need people who make it right, who show the way, and who say, “hey you really matter!”

Share your true life story showing Human Excellence in its truest form. Make your story hundred and fifty words or less and put it in the comment box below. Thank you to all the many new followers this week!

You are my JOY and each of you is truly special.
