There are a few simple guidelines I operate by in life and some of them are:

  1. Put Integrity and value first, no matter what anybody else does.
  2. 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.
  3. Fine tune your game plan every day.
  4. Be a voracious reader and lifelong learner.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. Exercise and spend time building your balance, stamina, and concentration through exercises like yoga and Tai Chi.
  8. Keep only quality people around you who represent your ideals and ethical beliefs.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.

So many prayers being answered and I am so grateful….

Above image taken by my dear friend Frederick Blanche at Lake Las Vegas Friday night. It was the first time I had ever been to Lake Las Vegas and I really had no idea where he was taking me to, as he wanted to keep it a surprise.

It was the most beautiful, cool evening with the enchanting lights all around and the reflection of the moon on the water. The delicate Breeze that felt like Southern California in Newport Beach and it reminded me of Fashion Island with the towering palm trees lining the massive Marquee wall as you turn the corner and drove into the area.

Every element was there to make an extraordinary moment and a stellar memory to go with it: the place, the time the special spontaneous moment and the company which was the center attraction.

One of the many enchanting restaurants in the Galleria are by Lake Las Vegas. There is a cozy French Bistro I wanted to go to and have coffee and soak up the atmosphere, people, sights. aromas and sounds….but that will be for a return trip sometime.

I’ve been praying to God in my words only and in the way that I want to- nothing scripted, nothing written, only spoken out loud and written on a whiteboard in my kitchen. The more I do that the more I’m seeing all my prayers answered almost immediately.

I just felt better all the way around. In my life health comes first and there are how many elements of the Catholic church that I don’t care for, but it was always the faith that I was raised in. With the Catholic Church you’re always begging God for everything and it’s a very self-deprecating faith or you’re never quite good enough for anything.

Don’t argue with anybody about that is just how I feel.

The great thing is once I realize that, and really look to see how I felt I can just put in my own words, I felt much better and it was liberating because that’s what you’re supposed to do according to the Bible anyway.

I had written that I wanted to find a personal assistant that was good and kind with a good heart who is talented and genuine. I wrote that on my whiteboard in the kitchen, and every day I read each one and pray and visualize each one happening.

I also that I wanted to find a partner that I could go into business with with, and others who had complimentary talents with mine, and I also have done just that.

We are meeting tomorrow and will bring to the table both of our minds, experiences and ideas and skills and abilities, which will be better than one.

PLM Studios who was a great photographer, artistic, with great people skills who had a marketing background.

I met that individual yesterday at a place I never went to in my life but just had a hunch to go there. I think sometimes hunches is God whispering to you and if you’re a spiritual person like myself, as you get older you really tune in on those things like a navigational GPS system guiding a satellite in the solar system.

And lastly I wrote I wanted to meet a wonderful guy who was kind and genuine with a good heart and of course a gentleman and all those prayers were incredibly answered in one day yesterday; it was almost surreal but it happened.

I also met a sweet, handsome intelligent gentleman who is a portraiture artist and who plays guitar. He and I have recently been getting to know each other. He asked me to play a song on my rosewood upright grand yesterday so I chose a piece I wrote called Mystic. It was awesome yo hear his excitement and it was great to simply play my piano again! Can I play the keys of the computer or smartphone or tablet incentive the keys of my piano and I know I should do it more often. Music was my first and only love for majority of my life after all.

He and I were talking about going into a studio in the future and playing some music together. I would draft up the chord chart for him to follow and we could record some of the songs that I wrote many years ago, which would be awesome.

This is something I prayed to do. I have simply spoken my prayers from my heart guided by the innermost depths of my soul while I envision them happening and writing them all with positive affirmations on my white board I see through the day.

Everyday and every minute the world is changing and so are we and we must be receptive to when we are changing and listen to what are instincts and true self says.

I didn’t feel like the Rosary did anything for me anymore, almost like I had moved on to a new Spiritual Realm, which is okay. As human beings the best things that we can do for herself and the best gift we can give ourselves is be true to ourselves. I feel is more true to my character.

I also began reading a phenomenal new book by Alan Cohen, the author of Handle with Prayer, a book which revolutionized my life the same day I started reading it. Things started getting better in my life immediately because of the way I thought about my relationship with God and the Omnipotent Presence or Higher Power is you may want to call it.

The new book that I begin reading on a free download from joining one of Alan Cohen mailing lists that tell all about what he’s doing all over the world is called “The Grace Factor”.

The Grace Factor speaks about how we all born complete and our uniqueness have our own uniqie beauty and we all have a right to be happy and to have blessings bestowed on us. In other words, The Grace Factor talks about instead of begging God for everything it’s you have a right to it and God is there with you helping you do all these things and the world. Treasures are waiting for you if you only ask for them….because you are deserving.

It’s totally different than the way I was raised.

I simply speak from my heart and from my soul, and from the innermost depths of my being -because I can, and that’s what I do best and because I am 100 genuine. Being genuine is all I know how to be.

One of my longtime friends said it was “transparent”, and I really didn’t understand what that meant. But if it means not saying anything that isn’t true or true to your nature and not saying anything unless you believe it, then that’s me.

I know that God listens when you and I are genuine, taking all the barriers down and facades and you truly ask for what you need and the wisdom to guide you in the direction you need.

When you have the utmost good intention in your heart, GOD LISTENS.

The Hoarder in You by Dr. Robin Zasio on Audible & Commentary by Paulette Motzko

I’m 3% through The Hoarder in You (Unabridged) by Dr. Robin Zasio, narrated by Cassandra Campbell on my Audible app.

Try Audible and get it free.

I read every review on this book and everyone that read it not only read it once but read it twice and said that it has given them insight into why they do what they do and allowed them to live a more peaceful life, streamlining what they owned and removing all the unwanted clutter from their world.

I’m happy to know that I’m not defined as a hoarder because a hoarder is a person who can’t make decisions about what they own, and I certainly can.

I’ve gotten rid of so many things that broke in my move coming from Southern California to Las Vegas and I replaced it with new that I liked better, in some cases.

I was happy that the things that mattered to me made it unbroken and in one piece.

When I was married I kept adding to my collections and now I just want to enjoy what I have.

In regards to my books, there are books that I will always keep, but there are others I pass on to other people or trade in several for one I love. Amazon has ways that you can sell books back to them; they do it by looking at the ISBN number too.

Just as people change with time so do the things we value in our lives, hence what we surround ourselves with.

I value:

  1. Always people first.
  2. Things secondly
  3. Most of all, I strive for simplicity and serenity and inner peace which gives happiness naturally.
  4. Enjoying the present moment to its full capacity.
  5. Making your present so phenomenal that you have Stellar Memories to look back on one day.
