Wisdom Story: “The Hedgehogs”
“It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.
The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.
Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.
The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities.”

You each are like special gifts that I unwrap each day when I read your comments and also explore your own blogs, stories and photographs.
I am very blessed to know you all through WordPress, and others through Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and some fresh air addresses and phone numbers. ( I am not on Facebookmuch any more due to it being too distracting on my goals I am trying to accomplish.)
I am a voice-to-voice and face-to-face kind of person anyway. I don’t like to text and it was clear using messaging thing, because I start feeling like a robot rather than a human being.
Keep being wonderful and special and I will keep trying to empower, educate, entertain and inspire you back!

Helen Keller Says: “When I recollect the treasure of friendship that has been bestowed upon me I withdraw all charges against life. If much has been denied me, much, very much has been given. So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart I shall say that life is good.”

All you will have to do is type that in your browser and the site will reroute from the old WordPress.com free plan to the best, most extraordinary Business plan they offer, offering me options that were never avaliable to me (and therefore you all my dedicated followers and fans who tune in faithfully each day and night.

This all began with me sharing a beautiful Chinese Proverb late in the day and having Jennie Fitzkee, who is a teacher, writer and blogger and wonderful human being comment on how wonderful it was can I share the proverb. See it said that through me I made the proverb brand new again.
And I told her that I had never heard it before so for me it was brand new.
From there I tried to put into words what inspiration is to me. And, for the first time I was able to actually define it in a way that accurately fits what I envision it to be.
I asked Jennie to email exactly what I wrote in my reply to her, and she did. Somehow when I replied to her on the WordPress Web platform, my response was completely not visible to me, and they always are.
“Jennie, I had never heard it so for me it was sparkling brand new. It is just so gratifying when I share something I know is meaningful here. I have a photographic memory and am a visionary kind of person. I picture me gently holding a monarch butterfly in my hand and seeing the beauty of it all…then letting it go free to shine it’s beautiful splendor on the world. The audience of Totally Inspired Mind are like flowers in a garden, each unique in their own way, none more pretty than the next.
When I get an idea I think is along the lines of good or great or empowering, the idea transforms into that “butterfly” that I briefly hold in my hands, admiring it, only to let it go free in hopes it will touch other’s lives to spread joy to them too.
Jennie inspired me to write that, what I called on a new Board on Pinterest I created today called “Divine Inspiration”….
People can be a catalyst for incredible ideas and collaboration that would never have been had the two people met. I would have never believed that when I got the idea for Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate from a hotel room Huntington Beach after I realized I could no longer take care of my mother who had very acute Alzheimer’s disease. Mom required a 24 hour staff instead of me. And the most liberating thing was realizing that and being blatantly honest with those realities.
I began focusing on only myself and putting myself number one, which was strange at first. I was giving everything I possessed as a human being with nothing coming back my way, and I had to quit before the flame was extinguished. The flame bein me.
Too many caregivers give so much of themselves there remains only a whisp of who they originally were before, with almost nothing left for themselves. That is all too common in the world.
I had the idea for this site but just never had a free moment to be able to think or concentrate on anything for longer than 5 minutes. I am not complaing, those were just the realities of helping my dear mother Ramona, now in heaven–I am glad I was there for here because she needed me, and this time’s with her are precious memories that will play back for all time with a smile on my face.
I wouldn’t ever have believed what began as my brain child where I could envision the greatest, most kind, big picture thinking people all getting together….and meeting one another….around a table set around the world.
It transformed from my vision to a website to immediate skyrocket of passionate, Triple Winning people who instantly embraced my idea and loved it.
The amount of effort that I’ve expended into it has comeback a thousandfold. It transformed from a caterpillar of an idea and through a kind of time-lapse metamorphosis, became a living, breathing wonderful entity. ….a very human thing because it is composed of imput and comments from all if you-my fabulous readers!
