Blogger’s Take Action On October 15

September 29, 2008 at 8:45 pm (Motivation-Inspiration) (, , , , , , )

This is very encouraging when a group of bloggers from all around the world devote time to post about the hurting people in the world.  Perhaps the open and honest comments will attract the right people who can make a difference with their voices and their dollars.

There are several good causes coming up including

Blog Action Day 2008 – Poverty

I believe the chosen day is October 15.

The next call to action is on November 10, 2008 where we will write about refugees.  People are separated when they have to flee their country.  If we have never been in this situation, how could we even imagine the pain involved in something like this.  How can we turn our backs on all the hurt in the world.

Perhaps by taking some time to get involved by using our blogs we can make a difference.  We can visualize our voices reaching the people who can move mountains with their voices.  It takes a start and the people at Blog Catalog have allowed groups that do this.  It starts with one voice and several are joining in.

Please join us.  Share you voice to help humanity.  For more information join us at Blog Catalog.

You can learn more here.

Childlike Wisdom

September 29, 2008 at 7:59 pm (Motivation-Inspiration) (, , , , )

You might have seen some of these before but they are still really great reminders of the wisdom that children have.  They always make us smile.

Slow down for three
minutes to read this. It is so worth it.

Touching words from the mouths of babes.

What does ‘Love’ mean?

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8
year-olds, ‘What does ‘love’ mean?’

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have
imagined. See what you think:



‘When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her
toenails anymore.
So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got
arthritis too. That’s love.’

Rebecca- age 8



‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.

You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’

Billy – age 4


‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and
they go out and smell each other.’

Karl – age 5


‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries
without making them give you any of theirs.’

Chrissie – age 6


‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’

Terri – age 4


‘Love is when my mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before
giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’

Danny – age 7


‘Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing,
you still want to be together and you talk more.

My Mummy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss’

Emily – age 8


‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening
presents and listen.’

Bobby – age 7 (Wow!)


‘If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who
you hate,’

Nikka – age 6

(we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)


‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it
everyday.’

Noelle – age 7


‘Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends
even after they know each other so well.’

Tommy – age 6


‘During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at
all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.

He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.’

Cindy – age 8


‘My mummy loves me more than anybody

You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’

Clare – age 6


‘Love is when Mummy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’

Elaine-age 5


‘Love is when Mummy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is
handsomer than Robert Redford.’

Chris – age 7


‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all
day’

Mary Ann – age 4


‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes
and has to go out and buy new ones.’

Lauren – age 4


‘When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars
come out of you.’ (what an image)

Karen – age 7


‘Love is when Mummy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s
gross.’

Mark – age 6


‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean
it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’

Jessica – age 8


And the final one — Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a
con test he was asked to judge.

The purpose of the con test was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an
elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard,
climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbour, the little boy
said,

‘Nothing, I just helped him cry’

I hope you enjoyed this.

Never Give Up! Never Quit!

September 27, 2008 at 7:25 am (Motivation-Inspiration) (, )

Here are some good Words of Encouragement.  I hope this helps you stay on the course that you set for success.

DON’T QUIT !

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sign,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out:
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit.
It’s when things seem worse, that you must not quit.

Keep on moving forward to your prize in life and remember that everything in life works for your success when success is your goal.

Tina Fey as Sara Palin-Saturday Night Live Opener

September 14, 2008 at 5:41 am (Political Humor)

I found this on Digg.com and just had to add this to my blog which opens up a whole new area on political humor.  Sometimes you just have to laugh, and this is funny.

I hope you enjoy it, too. Here is the article I took the video from even though it is on YouTube. It is getting quite a few Diggs now, too. It is a historic moment but not quite a hysteric one yet.

The Wisdom Of Growing Older

September 5, 2008 at 4:59 pm (Motivation-Inspiration) (, , , )

 

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could live like this every day?  I know some people who already do live like this.  How about you?  Are you living your dream?  Are you taking time to smell the roses yet?

Life can change in an instant so whether or not you are considered old or young, perhaps if you realize that every day is a gift, and tomorrow holds not guarantees, you will take time for you.

Here is the email I received with the words of wisdom.

 

Old Age, I decided, is a  gift.

I am now, probably for the first time in my  life, the person I have always wanted to be.   I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly.  As I’ve aged, I’ve become more kind to myself, and less critical of myself. I’ve become my own friend.

I don’t chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying   that silly cement gecko that I didn’t need, but looks so avant garde on my patio.  I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be  extravagant. 

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM and sleep until  noon?

I will dance with   myself to those wonderful tunes of the 50&60’s, and if I, wish I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.  They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful.  But there again, some of life is just as  well forgotten. And I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years my heart has been   broken.
But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion.  A heart never broken is pristine and 
sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to  have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.  So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.  

As you get   older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other   people think. I don’t question myself anymore. I’ve even earned the right to be wrong.  

So, to answer your question, I  like being old. It has set me free.    I like the person I have become.  

I am not going to live forever,  but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting about what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day. (If I feel like it)

MAY OUR   FRIENDSHIP NEVER COME APART ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S STRAIGHT FROM THE  HEART!

MAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE A RAINBOW OF SMILES ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART FOREVER AND EVER!
