What was something you did recently that involved using your imagination?
What did you create?
It’s three in the morning now and since I took nap I was wide awake and began baking some artisan bread that has a combination of wheat flours, rye, and coconut flour for sweetness and texture, brewer’s yeast for added nutritional value and raw wheat germ.
It’s already risen 1 hour and already pretty huge…it will be interesting to see what it does in the kitchen. It’s the first bread I ever made the combines both wheat flours and gluten-free flours in one bread.
The finished recipe will end up on CookingUpStormWithMissPolly.com. Stay tuned folks!
While playing in my culinary playground, listened to T.D. Jakes inspiring book on Librivox called “Instict”, which I highly recommend.
Then I switched over to My Favorite Love Songs Playlist on Spotify, because I am a romantic lady.
I then switched over to listen to the next chapter of “The World I Live” in by Helen Keller also on the Librivox free audio book app. I stopped every now and then to make note of extraordinary quotes and points from the book.
The header of this post was one of my favorites in the outstanding chapter called “The Five Senses.”
Two more phenomenal quotes from Helen Keller’s “The World I Live In” are:
If you wish to be something you were not- something fine, noble, good-you shut your eyes, and for one dreamy moment, you are that which you long to be.
The keenest of our vision depends not on how well we see but in how well we feel.
Many persons with perfect eyes are blind to their own perceptions.
Yet these are the very ones who dare to set limits on those who lack a sense or two, having will, soul, passion, imagination.

This simple but very poignant quote comes from my childhood heroine who is still my adult heroine today.
She formed many of my viewpoints on what “disabled” people can do at an early age. We all have some kind of disability, big or small, it’s how we view it that makes all the difference. We can downplay or highlight it.
Make the most of your intelligence, abilities and skills.
Helen Keller accomplished more in her lifetime without seeing or hearing then many have ever done in their entire life blessed with vision and hearing.
If you ever desire to read an extraordinary book on the free audio book app called LibriVox….look up Helen Keller and you’ll find enough reading material to keep you inspired for weeks.
Once you install Librivox-based on the Latin prefix Librivox-based meaning book, and vox meaning voice.
Listen to “The World I Live In” by Helen Keller.
It will change the way you look at your world forever.
Read “Optimism” also by her on Google Play Books.
If those two don’t make you aspire to greatness, I don’t know what will!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did putting them all together.
Which ones are your personal favorites and why?
I say to follow both.
Follow your dreams and still hunt your goals, two radically different things.

Ever notice that when you go to a specific place you are more creative, prolific, or things simply work out effortlessly?
I find the older I get the more I pay attention to these occurrences. I do what works repeatedly; we don’t have to understand why but that- it simply is.
If you’re a very creative, visionary type person like me, you’ll especially want to refine and hone in perfecting this skill.
It takes a lot of trial-and-error to see what works for you and your own personal work schedule and also the type of work that you do which varies for all of us.
Experiment and keep a journal as to what you accomplished and where you did it. If you’re a writer, photographer, or a digital artist like me, this is especially important.
Some people say they “get into the zone” or “get in the right frame of mind,” whatever figure of speech you use- just find ways that you can get inspired and keep doing those things without fail that work.
Also, just as important as keeping track of what works, make special note of what doesn’t work for you and then don’t do it again! That’s the key to success in life keep repeating what really works well an avoid what doesn’t.
Also, make sure and take your business cards, any flyers or other things you created to showcase your work. If you haven’t created anything like that yet, then by all means please do!
Effective and cleverly created marketing tools are like little Messenger birds carrying loads of possibilities in their beaks! They can travel way farther than you ever dreamed.
Very well-constructed business cards don’t get in people’s hands unless you get out of the house to put them in there too!
Facebook and Twitter can only go so far you know, and it’s boring as hell as far as I’m concerned it’s just sit in front of a monitor all day. Life wasn’t meant to be lived like that.
You know that card you gave that person that sat next to you? Maybe they didn’t want any of your products or services but they may have 5 people who do, and then who knows how many they may have.
So, if you find a person that their eyes light up like a beacon and they sparkle and are excited about you and what you’re doing, give that person 5 or 10 cards, so they can pass them out on your behalf.
All you need are dedicated fans who not only like you, but like your work and believe in what you’re doing. Once you’ve made that kind of rapport with someone, you can capitalize on that in a very genuine way.
People can spot authenticity in 1 second, and people can spot people who are not doing things for the right reason, or who are manipulative, or who are walking around like sales people reading some kind of artificial script.
I never walk around like a salesperson; I’m just myself and I’m outgoing and have the same personality my mother had, who was richly blessed with charisma.
When I went to Chapman University and I was in the Voluntary Leadership program back in 1997, one of the powers that they referred to was money, another was education but the one you can’t buy and you have to be born with is charisma.
People are more than happy to tell their friends and coworkers about your company and what you do if it has merit and value.
The way I always look at it, is I don’t really hand out cards to people as a rule, but I simply put some of my things out there wherever I Go, typically Starbucks or another rather high end coffee place, tea house, or simply an interesting place I have never been. Wherever I think people would like the products and services that I create….I will check it out. I go on refined hunches that typically pay off.
It just involves using common sense and psychology and a little demographically knowledge doesn’t hurt either.
I simply put enough interesting things out there on my table that I’m sitting at- that the people come to me- I don’t bother them.
I never do. I just put a few things out on the table that I think would tell people what I do, what kind of person I am, and they come to me asking questions. Even if they aren’t interested in what I do, I usually make a new friend.
After all, you can have the best product Services the best writing, the best artwork, and photography, but if nobody knows about it all-what good is it when it’s only for your eyes only.
I took Twitter and Facebook off my device because I was starting to feel like a robot or a cyborg on the stupid computer or my smart phone all day and I didn’t want to end up like that. Voice to voice and face to face tell people more about you as a human being and what you do than sitting around a computer sharing stuff on networking sites any day.
You have to have tenacity, courage, tons of guts and confidence to be able to do things like that. Overtime you will build that but if you sit behind a computer 24 hours a day and just share stuff on different networking sites people will never really get to know you and what you do and what you’re all about. Can’t you tell people better about what you do if you saw them face-to-face then if you told them on a post on Facebook?
The people that are out in the real world are the people who are going to be the real supporters in True Life. Those are the people that if you just happen to do a project for them, will hopefully write a testimonial.
So way before Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and Pinterest, they were people, ordinary people that talk to one another and who had conversations that were exciting.
I hope that some of the things that I’ve learned over the years help some of you out there somehow.
I know that all the people reading this on WordPress are typically writers, they’re good with photography because they put pictures in to embellish the stories and their creative because most have a Blog.
Try building your friendship base this week and also build new customers by strategically looking up on Google Maps places where people would be more likely to like what you do. Take your smartphone with you maybe your tablet computer but keep your ears and eyes open and don’t just sit there with your ear pieces on so people won’t talk to you.
Take your earpiece off or Bluetooth off your head! Nobody talks or initiates conversation with anybody with a thing on their head.
Once you do that, people start noticing you and then you start realizing that people are very outgoing and it’s a pretty nice world live in.
Wherever you are I hope you have a blessed night.
Signing off for the day…
and necessary no matter what you’re doing in life

This was inspired by a friend who was having difficulty quitting smoking. So I found these for her and thought I would share them all with the world too!
If 20 of you quit smoking as a result of these affirmations and helpful charts, but it was definitely worth posting.
If you have struggled with quitting smoking before take a couple of these images and save them and then put them on your smart device to look at or put on the front face as a wallpaper.

Mom, Ramona Le Pore, when she was 16 years old.
All Images were created and written by Paulette Le Pore Motzko from old photos that I treasure more than you’ll ever know.
Mom always taught me this important fact in life to value people first and things second. Sadly some never understand that simple guide in life, like my ex.
I am so happy I put mom’s needs first and made sure she had love and the homemade meals I would especially make for her.
That TIME we shared together involved a lot more than eating, and the most important thing about it was that we spent TIME TOGETHER. She knew that I put tons of love and TLC into each meal, and was willing to make her literally anything . God knows how many meals she made for me as a kid and through my life!
Mom took this photo of me in my parent’s old duplex which is now been liquidated. Dad bought the place with me in mind years ago when I was single and designed the kitchen for me- laying the tile countertops himself and putting a really pretty wood shelf above the sink that exists only in pictures now.
That was the most special room in their place, because of all the work he put into it.
It was really easy to please mom because she was so appreciative of everything you did for her.
The best of what I could afford, which wasn’t much compared to my siblings, who didn’t have the big picture view I did and were quick to judge me, but were doing nothing until I pointed out I wasnt her only “child”, and they were much older than I with more financial resources.
I was the only one at times who thought things that way.
She begged me to buy cigarettes for her and I never wanted to be responsible for contributing to her acquiring a lung cancer or a God forsaken disease. She had enough she was dealing with trying to care for my crippled father who made almost daily hospital trips.
I didn’t want regrets but great memories. She was diagnosed with COPD later in her life and I’m so happy that I wasn’t the one buying cigarettes!
I stood up to people who were and basically told them “what are you doing trying to kill her faster!?”
What I said wasn’t popular, but I really didn’t give a crap. Sometimes people’s perspective is messed up and I would not say my adult siblings were not thr triple winners I speak of, but the opposite based on decisions they made in regards to mom, dad and I.
I don’t hold grudges but I also don’t want drama or disfunction in my life and I only associate with kind, compassionate, empathetic people, of which they proved they were not.
Why do I tell you all this?
It is cathartic for me, but I am not feeling sorry for myself but really telling a true story about values, ethics, the value of human beings and their worth, and saying it’s o.k. to not associate with family who are less than kind.
Also, if you are lucky enough to still have parents who are alive and well, count your blessings 3 times.
If they are disabled, have dementia or were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, then learn everything you can about it, and do everything you can from it taking all your family member’s life quality away.
Make the most of now and make each moment the most special you can, as one day it will be a stellar memory like mine are.
That’s why I want to champion the cause of finding the CURE for it and why I named the this newsletter after Mom but I was still taking care of her and she never knew about it. She didn’t have to know. The most important thing was I knew about it and when this is successful and it’s monetized which I’m working on, it will be able to accept tax deductible donations which will go towards finding that cure.
Not just find the cure but fund it with a monitored version of this informational newsletter.
I contacted the Bill Gates Foundation about my projects in what I’m doing and I’m not done contacting them. He’s recently donated 10 million dollars to that particular cause and he made that public in Forbes Magazine last October 2017. His father Bill Gates Senior was diagnosed and he has a huge vested interest in finding the cure like I do.
I’m so happy that I said what I said because people quit buying her cigarettes after that and instead spending time with her like I told them to.
Time is the most valuable thing you will ever have or give anyone.
Remember that because all of our time here is short-lived. Say and do the things you want now; don’t wait for some mystical day in the future that may never come.

I hope you surround yourself with “Some Kind of Wonderful” Where You Are today.
I can’t to make the words to that song come true with someone really special.
We will dance when the sun is shining…
We will dance through the pouring rain…
When the gentle breeze becomes a hurricane…
And I will take your hand and hold you close to me and we will dance.
You get enough weird weather in Nevada, so you’d take this song literally! 🙂
As another thunderstorm moves through Las Vegas, I decided to clean my cabinets put and organize my kitchen, putting things where it’s the most functional and pleasing to my eyes.
The weather people should just report “more lousy weather!” What most of them tell you is it really true anyway so I don’t know why people watch the weather report. And more accurate ways to just use something like WeatherBug and set it to report the weather every 15 minutes to 30 minutes so you can see where the GPS exactly what the weather is like right on your street!
You can’t really plan anything in this town because the weather changes every 30 minutes and I’m not kidding you!
Home listening to my tunes on my Bluetooth speakers while I watch the storm move in through my picture window.
May you be very blessed today, no matter what you are doing.
