Sowing the seeds in my garden of good intentions and love to the world.

Thank you to the thousands of wonderful, good hearted people with positive minds who daily read and contribute their ideas on Totally Inspired Mind and make it the special place it has become.

It was and is a continual labor of love and the seeds I planted two years ago when I created it have bloomed into a fragrant bouquet, with over 2,076 members adding their scent to the potpourri.

The World I Live In by Helen Keller. Listen to the Extraordinary Audio Book on Librivox for Free and Expand Your World

http://wp.me/p3NpLL-aG

Read The World I Live In on Librivox.com. This is a fabulous free site where volunteers from all over the world read the greatest books ever written.

Use your imagination,  build family bonding and learn new words and concepts.

She remains my heroine and was a very influential human being in my life because I read her story when I was nine years old. That was the year I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I knew if she could do what she did and not see or hear; I could do anything.

I read her story when I got her autobiography in 5th grade on a book drive.

I am on chapter 9 now and by the time u go to sleep I will have read the entire book in an evening.

In chapter 11 Helen Keller says that it took her a long time to understand that when the flowers were picked it didn’t hurt them and the concepts of immortality the universe. Its incredible that she was able to understand you very high confidence that she did never seeing or hearing it just baffles me. Anne Sullivan was probably the best teacher that ever lived and Helen Keller was probably a genius 10 times over.

If you are in the mood for a different book and it isn’t your “cup of tea”, pick something else, and constantly plant new ideas and thoughts in the fertile soil of your mind.

Enjoy!

When you do that you expose yourself to all kinds of cultures, all kinds of people, and it widens your perspectives, and broadens your horizons.

To Reach Port You Must Not Stay Anchored or Drift-but SAIL! Rick Wagoner & Paulette L Motzko

My good friend Rick Wagoner does something wonderful everyday, throughout the day. He finds some of the best and most positive poignant quotes and shares them with the world on Twitter on @BigDreamFuel.

This post is a tester to see if I could share his tweet that I normally retweet on Twitter with my over 1,400 readers and the over 50 countries that tune in each month.

Rick and I like to think with each post we write, we are putting good out in the world and changing people’s thoughts for the better.
When you change someone’s thoughts, you influence their actions for the better.
When you change the actions someone makes, you have just changed their life.

When you change enough lives you have changed the world by your actions.

God bless everyone reading this, and may this be the first in a series of light, empowerment and knowledge shared by Rick Wagoner and I, Paulette Le Pore Motzko.

Have a blessed and productive day.

Make at least one new friend today by finding the saddest and most alone person you can find and talking to them. You will never believe how valuable your words of “how are you” are to them.

Thank You Redheadedwhovian For Nominating Paulette L Motzko for Most Inspiring Blogger Award!

The Most Inspiring Blogger Award was one I hoped to earn one day and through the many hours of writing, design improvements, and finding what I believe are the best stories from a wide variety of sources, my creation inspired another grateful soul to nominate me.

Yesterday I arose bright and early with the birds today at 4 a.m. and felt refreshed.

image

I walked about a mile…maybe two, and moved at a good clip and didn’t feel winded. All my days at The Las Vegas Athletic Club are worth it in how much better I feel.

I wrote a proposal to do a feature story, photo & marketing package at The Clark County Library.

I was able to get my new library card too and check out a few Italian cooking magazines too.
I went to The Blueberry Hill Family Restaurant and had maybe the best bowl of chili I had in a restaurant and a friend picked me up.

I got home and found to my surprise that Totally Inspired PC won another award and it was The Most Inspiring Blogger Award this time.

Thank you everyone.

I will fill these blanks in tomorrow.

The curtain to this day is closing.

Seven Facts About Paulette Motzko

1. Paulette Motzko believes that her attitude is the single most valuable asset you will ever carry with you. Her advice regarding YOUR ATTITUDE is: Guard it; Take care of it; Defend it; Plant more seeds that bloom into beautiful flowers every day. The “seeds” are the things you do for others, the way you spend your time, and who you allow in your life as well as who you associate with. Make sure all the people in your life set high standards for themselves so they can be good influences in your life.

2. We all have stories about our lives to tell. Even though I have had more than a few tragic tales to tell that happened in my life, I refuse to let them define me. Just because evil and apathetic people treated you as though you were less than garbage, know you aren’t and don’t treat others like you were. Treat people like you would have wanted to be treated if the world had been perfect.

3. I taught piano to all ages for over 20 years

4. Was married to a real rocket scientist for 15 years.

5. Stands up for all disabled people because she herself has an invisible disability epilepsy.

6. She tries and does the right thing, not the easy thing and hopes to have no regrets in life.

7. Paulette dreamed she could fly after watching Mary Poppins when she was four years old. The movie still remains one of her all time favorites.

My Nominations For Most Inspiring Blogger Award

1. Marco Jair Lopez http://MarcoJairLopez.wordpress.com
After Marco contacted me to look at his blog I was impressed with what he had written. I wasn’t aware it was only created a few days before. Though Marco is only 21, his wisdom is far greater. His story I reblogged has been on the Top Ten list since I shared it, and was number one on the site yesterday.
I know he is going to do great things with his words.

2. Paul Militaru’s Photography Portfolio
Htt://photopaulm.com
Paul’s amazing crystal clear photographs always awe and inspire me. His poetry and word pictures conjure up memories and always make me smile. If they don’t spark a pleasant memory, I can imagine I was there, or wish I was.
Thank you also Paul Militaru, for being one of my biggest fans on Totally Inspired Mind.
Every day, with every post, your recognition is appreciated.

Words of Gratitude to My 1,355 Followers on Totally Inspired Mind

Good morning Beautiful World!

I am drinking my morning coffee writing this on my Galaxy S Relay Smart Phone and feeling deeply appreciated by all the new people who have commented to me directly this week.

I am constantly running into new writers in my daily life who want to know how to get started, and I tell them to write every day.

image

I also urge them to create a blog for readership, exposure, notoriety and a book list. That is what I did over 6 years ago when I read an article in a Writer’s Market book. I had heard the word “blog” but had no clue what it was and why people would write on it.

Now many years later, I have many different blogs on WordPress and wouldn’t use any other medium. WordPress is the only site where you can have a site up and running for free in a few hours of quality, uninterrupted time.

It also has a “reblog” button allowing you, the blog creator, to share other people’s work without asking their permission.
Most people are grateful when I choose to share their work on one of my sites and I end up corresponding with them.

I want to thank my many readers and followers of Totally Inspired Mind and those who have shared my link with others.

Have a blessed day!

Sincerely,

Paulette Le Pore Motzko

To My 1244 Wonderful Blog Readers & Followers…You Are My Inspiration

I thank you all for all the incredible positive comments I receive daily on Totally Inspired Mind.
Also, here is a huge virtual hug to all my new fellow writer photographer friends that I have “met” via WordPress, that I have reblogged your posts here. I read through 100’s of pieces about over 200 topics to hand select what I feel is outstanding web content that would appeal to all people, regardless of their race, color or creed.

We are really all the same on this planet we call earth.

The sooner we realize that we can work towards peaceful communication with other countries and quit fighting over religion and instead offer a hand shake looking at the inocent children of the world and work towards peace for their sakes and their children’s sake.

Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change. – Malcolm X

“Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.” – Malcolm X

Malcolm X is dead on right. I am angry but I don’t sit around and bitch. I am in the process to contact my congressmen and women to allocate the funding in Orange County, CA in a more intelligent manner.
I want to see every disabled person on SSI or SSDI with a place they can live with dignity and integrity. I am one of those people.
We either need to scrap the housing voucher entirely and come up with a program/solution to the many homeless or displaced disabled people who hear there is no vouchers given for nearly 10 years!
That is unacceptable!!
Those people will be dead by then or put in dangerous situations and injured.
Housing solutions for our Veterans of the USA is another one I want to tackle and the bus systems of OCTA.

As long as I live in Orange County and use the bus systems, I know I can improve the funding to get more buses running so it doesn’t take two hours to get somewhere.

The Access buses have seat belts in them because of me and the lobbying I did with OCTA telling them it was unsafe to drive without them.

Housing rates number one in importance. I want to start a petition and get signatures on it and send it to Washington, D.C.

I am a fire starter that kindles a fire within others for positive change.

I hope that the citizens of the world can unite to help the 1200 who died in the typhoon in The Philippines. There is a link in another post showing how you can donate medical supplies and other needed things there through UNICEF.

I also hope the storn bypasses Vietnam entirely and dissipates like harmless water vapor. Mother Nature has done enough damage for now.

We Must Share The World- A Haiku by Paulette Motzko

We must share the world

We need communication

Tolerance to all!

Written in the wee hours of the morn when the many troubling things in the world were bothering me and wishing the world leaders would think of what is at steak by sacrificing all for the one.

Mother Teresa was a saint in action long before the church recognized her as one. Her words are timeless today and mine mirror hers in that she knew we need to find solutions to our world problems, and we need to learn to work together somehow.
