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 they‘re 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.

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.

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.

Smith Magazine is a wonderful magazine I just discovered by doing a search on Google.
The most difficult thing in writing I think, used to be succinct and concise say what you want and few words. It’s not so much pinpointing the right descriptive terms and saying what you want, but for most writers it’s trimming excess verbage.
Is it hard to write but then again I’m going to try my hand at my imagination along with it.

Minimizing Apathy and Maximizing Social Responsibility in America

Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate
I was trying to put into words the term for when you do something just because it is right but not because it EASY or THE STATUS QUO. A fellow writer and blogger friend of mine called it “moral courage” the other day.
We are all connected on this big, water covered planet we call earth. There is only one of them, so if we mess it up or the people who inhabit it, we never have a chance to go back and fix it. Life on earth as we know it is a “one shot deal” so we better get it right the first time and quit living as though everything is expendable.
We have a throwaway society anymore and people and the apathy towards people in general has gone along with the trash we throw away. It shouldn’t be and I am not saying that all people are apathetic, because of course they are not. There are just many who could do far more than they do for others they meet in everyday life.
Once the water systems are polluted, what do we do?
Just these thoughts are good ones to ponder in terms of how we should be making sure there are no oil spills killing our fish and wildlife and ruining the water.
Human beings have a lot in common with the earth in that they are both mostly composed of water. Without it, all life ceases to be.
What about bombs and the warfare, chemical or otherwise? Since I was married to a rocket scientist and he was the master of logic and science; since we were married for fifteen years, I chose to take with me the best of what I learned and the best of our memories together. Why throw a bomb that will kill thousands of innocent women, children, and ruin the land around it, making it impossible to plant anything-just to wipe out that one “target”? It isn’t logical to me.
Why not find and train more people who speak the languages of the countries we are fighting right now, or at least have our military people in like Afghanistan and Syria?
Try something you haven’t tried before.
Success models are made up of prototypes that worked. Once you know the model, you can strive to create one that works as well or supersedes it.
How about our budget that the so-called great leaders in the United States of America have concocted?
Above wallpaper image from Zedge.
There has not been any trace of anyone from the two Bush’s to Reagan who has ever tried to come up with a budget that would start paying off the debt already incurred. Obama keeps spending and China owns more of America. It’s like a dirty American secret that nobody wants to take accountability for.
Will our next president of the United States make sure the priorities are in the right places? I certainly hope so, but rather than seeing human beings who invented great leadership skills, I see Trump as an overgrown brat who tragically never grew up. I see Clinton with major trust issues going in the office, after breaching national securiy. Wish you did with a lot more than just sharing emails! People lost lives because of those emails and that cannot be overstated.
I haven’t sat through one debate becauase it is not one by true definition. A debate is where people are asked intelligent, hard-hitting questions and they answer them , and an intelligent fashion . Trump and Clinton are good at insulting each other and name calling and badgering. I had little tolerance for badgering in elementary school and I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior now.
Is there some kind of moral conduct and we can demand that of our presidential candidates?
It’s almost as though you need a referee make in a boxing match.
‘ve never seen a time in our political history where we’ve needed in an actual referee like it’s a boxing match verses to great minds talking about what they would each do. We never had that in the election from the get-go
I am not sure what kind of actual good they can accomplish, since they are not showing the best of who they are when that is exactly what they should be doing!
This is idiocy and being that I was born and raised in The United States and never want to see the day when China owns America.
What is going on is a vicious cycle of stupidity, borrowing on China’s credit and we are looking the fool in the eyes of other countries.
Before I get on a this one topic alone, that infuriates me at the stupidity and complete lack of responsibility on the parts of all who work for the government for not prioritizing paying the debt of the USA.
I hope I see the day when a budget is created and adhered to. I hope I see the day when we have a new president who has one known social security number, and stands for things that benefit Americans instead of big businesses.
I hope I see the day when you can get a job in America without having to know Vietnamese or Spanish, when it is America you are trying to get the job and not Vietnam or Mexico.
I hope I see the day when people try to be more kind and tolerant of each other’s differences.
Movie makers, producers and directors put positive and empowering messages out there instead coming up with a crime show give goofballs and psychos ideas to blow things up and kill people in movie theaters. Values can and could dictate our society, if we all wanted that badly enough.
I hope I see the day when our president realizes that every action has a chain reaction be it a bomb, something that is not needed that tax payer’s end up paying for. China is buying more of America up every day as the imaginary credit card is used.
They print up so much “play money” that I don’t think they understand in the real world, for you and I and everyone else, we all have to pay our debts. Why isn’t the White House and those who write the checks accountable as we are?
Breaking laws to fit personal agendas doesn’t make me proud of the current leadership. Can’t we as Americans demand to see how the money is spent? They are working for the American people and are supposed to be our ambassadors.
What are your major concerns for our country? What would you like to see happen in the next year in America?
Please Mr. President Obama, well you’re still president- open your eyes, wake up and be accountable for what you spend regarding our country.
Students arming Syrian terrorist and creating Isis why don’t you look at all the veterans who have no homes?
What did you think of raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI and SSDI?
Why don’t you see that every American in every state can live in dignity and peace and have all their Corporal needs met before you think of taking money we don’t have and giving it to other countries?
NOW is a good time to create and adhere to a workable budget, not just hype.
Start caring and acting responsibly and care about America being owned my Americans and how we take care of it now is the gift we will hand down to our children.
