Never Let Anyone Bring You & What Your Passionate About Down

Today, I had a battle with someone on my Facebook friend’s list who should have never been a friend at all in the first place, who criticized me and sarcastically asked me a snide question which I really didn’t like on why I have to post about a retreat Armenian seminar I am going to this weekend 10 times? I can sense the sarcasm instantly with the tone of the way the wording was and how it was brought to my attention. Well, it is obvious and she should have common sense that not everyone sees something instantly on their news feeds on Facebook, so I need to keep promoting it because there have been times where people don’t see what I post. I mean, last time I checked it is my Facebook, and its not like I am posting anything bad. I can post what I like, and post anything that I want. I do not need anyone’s approval or permission to post what I am passionate about and what I am devoted to.

Never let others dictate your life, never let others decide what you like and don’t like. I am passionate about Taking care of my house, taking care of my family, My friends,  and I love the Highway 401 East in Ontario, Canada, Montreal, Transport Trucks, Traveling, Driving, Cooking, Cleaning, I am also passionate and dedicated to making the world a better place with no bullying, with no hate, with loving each other, with happiness, positivity, optimism, enthusiasm about life and everything that is beautiful about this world with the people in it. I will not let somebody tell me what I should and should not like, and I am not going to let another persons jealousy take over me. That girl is obviously so jealous of me and what I stand for and what my beliefs are and she is so intimidated by me. Those are types of people that are not true friends to me. I had to delete her off my friends list today. It came to that point where I drew the line, that she crossed over big time. One little snide comment can mean a bigger thing and she wanted to say in such a fashion not to offend me in anyway, but I know where she is going with that and I knew she meant it the way I know she meant it.

One thing I cannot stand is sarcastic snide remarks. I believe everyone is free to like what they like, and if people have that problem, then they should not be your friends in the first place. People should accept you for who you are, and not what you like. Today I just got so tired and had to put my foot down. She did not message me privately about it, she had to write it on my Facebook feed for everyone to see, but My good friends and my family backed me up big time, and I want to thank those individuals for helping me through this ordeal today. I deleted the whole conversation, I deleted her off my friends list. I do not need people like her burning me like that and making cruel remarks. If someone appreciates you for you and supports you in everything, that is a person to keep. I am so glad I had to do what I had to do today. It was as easy as one click, and poof gone. I said enough is enough. I had to put my foot down. I couldn’t handle it anymore. I need to review my friends list and spend a couple of days analyzing those who are worth to keep on my friends list and who are not.

I am just so tired of people bringing me down with the things I like. The things I like are not bad. Who would have thought liking a highway, traveling, cooking, cleaning, Montreal, Transport Trucks and trucking, Driving and other things I like would be so bad and people having a problem with it? I mean what in the heck is wrong with society? Yet people like bad influence shows, yet people become fans of shows that are such a disgrace to society like Glee, Jersey Shore, and all those shows that are on Television nowadays. People are passionate about that and I just don’t understand why people think they are even great things to watch? And yet the things I like get put down. I mean yes, everyone is entitled to like what they want to like, but again nobody should be bullied and nobody should receive snide remarks.

I needed to get this off my chest tonight. It really made my day gray, but my family and friends helped me get through it today and I feel better tonight. Thanks everyone.

I love you!

 

Never Be Afraid To Ask For Help When You Need It Most.

Have you ever had the issue of being afraid to ask for help when you need it the most? Have you ever been in a middle of a situation and you hesitate and think twice about asking for a hand in something? I am sure all of us at some point have felt the embarrassment of it, but I can assure you, it is not an embarrassment or a fear. I know a lot of us want to do things on our own and be independent people without other people’s help, and a lot of people go on in life without help from other people, but never be afraid to ask for it when you need it, because there are so many dangerous things that can happen to someone if they do not ask for help. So many things can happen, such as when someone lifts something heavy and does not ask for help and then that persons back starts hurting or injures ones self badly. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help, when you do not ask for it, people will automatically think, that your trying to be the hero, your trying so hard to impress people by doing everything on your own, but your not doing yourself any good. You are harming your body and your health by doing that. Always think before you do something because when help is there and when there are people that ask you if you want help with things, and you say no, I can do it all on my own, then the next time you do need that help, they won’t be there and they will say, I thought you can do everything on your own?

It is not a bad thing when people are trying to be helpful to you and to give you their hands, time and energy to you. In any situation whether it is at work, home, something emotional, something physical, something that you need. If you do not ask, you won’t know the answer. Also if people ask, its great to always be polite when you ask. Always say, Hello, May I please have some assistance with this? Please and thank you, you will see that the answer will be a yes most of the time, and you will see great results. Also if someone is going through a tough emotional problem, stresses that a person needs a friend or someone to talk to, that person will say May I ask for advice on what to do in this certain situation? Its always a May I? Not can you? Not Can I? Never stop asking for help when you need it. I know it can be something that a lot of people fear, but do not fear, help is there. You just need to ask.

Some people are so proud and so high and mighty of themselves, but deep inside, they know exactly that they need that help, but they try and do everything to not feel the humiliation of asking. Its not an easy thing, I know, but it can be. Please and Thank you are magic words. Some people do not even say thank you to someone or people who have helped them or have done so much for that person. Please and Thank you’s are important and beautiful words. Its very important to utilize them in every aspect. So ask for help today. Don’t be afraid. No one is perfect. We all make mistakes, we all have differences, but one thing you should know, that help is not a bad thing. for anyone or anything. Give it a try and see for yourself.

 

How Blogging Has Taught Me So Much

In My Life blogging has become one of the most important aspects in my life to share with the world and to share with people my experiences, my life, and everything that I stand for. Blogging has taught me so much about how to express myself. I love writing and throwing out my feelings and what I want to say about certain things in life and among everything else. If there is something in this life, I really enjoy, its blogging. I love sharing and reading other peoples blogs, I love learning and doing new things all the time. Its my passion to write and its my passion to get out there and be known and show who I am to the world. I am sure a lot of us bloggers stand for similar things and we all want to be out there. It is important to express yourself and to never be afraid to write what you feel about a certain thing. Blogging is an incredible tool and now everyone searches for so many things and subjects about life and about issues of today’s society and I have noticed that a lot of people search for a lot of it. My stats are an example for that with search terms on important issues in life and people want answers, and hopefully they find what they are looking for. It makes me happy to know that people search for incredible things and find answers to their questions.

Blogging has taught me so much about life, its taught me to never be afraid to express myself, I am so committed into my blogging and It is one of my priorities everyday. I always make time for blogging as it is very important to me. When you blog and when you start up something as fabulous as this, you should never stop and you should never run out of ideas. always ask people around you, always ask and search for topics to write about. Although it could have been discussed a lot of times, but when you put it in your own words and when you put it out there, its something so incredible. Try to write everyday, try to get on out there and discuss many topics. You will how incredible your traffic will become on your blog and the tags are super important and people will locate tags a lot and that will pinpoint you and your blog. I do not rest until I have finished writing and finished with writing for my daily blog. Its something that I have vowed to do, and I will not give up. I have recipes, I have talked about many issues. I am so proud of myself, I feel incredibly amazing and feel so great when I do blog. I want to make as much of a difference in the world as possible and I want to get my messages out to so many people around the world who need it and who need a boost in life. So many people are going through depression, and so many terrible things, I want to be the one to shine light on them because they truly need to hear positive encouragement and they need people around them to comfort them.

with out words and with our blogs, and when people want to search for positivity, optimism and for happy things, its such a powerful tool. Blogging, Social Networking, Media and everything has become so powerful. Blogging especially. Its become so advanced, so many millions of people in the world blog and its such a great thing. I am so committed and so determined to change the world, to make the world a happier place. I want my words and my blogs to empower and to keep people going all the time.

You Can Do Something When you Put Your Mind To It.

There are so many things in life I believe in and one of them is when you really try your best and when you do something and succeed in it, it means you put your mind to it. I strongly know that when people try and when people put their mind to something, they will always succeed. It is important to believe in yourself, and always strive for the best. Mistakes are proof that you are trying and doing. When you start on prioritizing, when you start on getting great results for something it means that your doing your best and your not letting anybody else bring you down. I know all of us have strengths, talents and wit. We also have our weaknesses, but don’t let your weakness define you and your life. In order to reach for the rainbow and in order to get up there in life you, you have to try out things. If you do not try and if you do not take chances, you will never know. You can do anything you put your mind to. You just need to focus, do your best and everything else will follow. It is an incredible thing when we set goals to achieve them. I believe that when someone is passionate about something, when someone gives it their all, success is and greatness is just one step forward. Taking steps and measures to do what you like is incredible. Take steps, do not be afraid of taking steps and chances. Everyone has great strengths and qualities. Take sometime to discover them. When you have the drive, the principles and important factors, everything will fall into place. You can do it, you can do anything. Believe me you can. Don’t settle for less than what you deserve. Go with the flow and believe that you can gather greatness in your life.

Be confident, be yourself, and do what you can do. It is amazing and beautiful. Just keep on trying and keep it up, keep up the great work, and most importantly do not lose sight of anything that comes your way. Take opportunities as they come, and do not let go. So be who you are, and never ever let anybody tell you, you cannot do it, the greatest satisfaction is when you do something that others say you cannot do. That is the great feeling ever. Give it to them and show them who’s boss you are. Your ahead of the game and never let anyone mess with you.

My Sentimental Value Toward Highway 401 East, Ontario, Canada

Hello everyone, I know this topic has come up on many of my blogs stating about the Highway 401 East in Ontario, Canada and How big of an impact it’s had on me and my life. It is a sentimental value to me. The Highway 401 has brought a lot of memories for me from when I was a child up til this point. I am very happy to have this connection with a highway I love driving on, and going to my Happy Place Montreal. I love Highway 401 East because It its a corridor to Montreal and to Autoroute 20 in Quebec. I am such a sentimental person that even a highway is special to me. I know it sounds odd and a little strange, but I know that in all of us we have a sentimental thing that may not be a big deal to another person, but it can be a big deal to one person. Its like one persons junk is another person’s treasure to sort of speak. It is something that I have a strong bond with. I know you maybe thinking a strong bond with a highway? Sounds silly doesn’t it? Well, it is not silly to some people. I have encountered many others who feel the same way I feel about it. I am a super driving nut. I love to drive and especially passing by the big trucks and big rigs on the 401. I love it so much. I am a huge fan of those big transport trucks and I know a lot about them and when I have conversations with people on the type of truck it is, or the make, people say wow, you are so knowledgeable about it. I like to learn a lot of new things and live to tell about it. So moving on, when I go to OnRoute Service centers when I take a break on the 401, You never realize how fast you go until you stop at a service center and see these cars, vans, transport trucks zoom right by and its amazing to know that, that is how fast were going.

Anyway, I am very happy to share this sentimental value with everyone. I believe in blogging, you can write about anything and open your heart out on everything. I believe I feel better when I blog and share my stories with the world and with different people. It is what makes the world go around hearing stories, different opinions, suggestions, and stories such as this one. I have written about this a few times, but I just can’t get over how much of a value it has in my life. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to share this with everyone. Its amazing what this blogging world has become, so many people write, so many people are in the same criteria, genre as I and I like that so much. reading peoples opinions, reading peoples stories. Its very nice to read.

Thank you all for sharing your stories, thank you all for having the guts to write about things. It takes a lot out of someone to put it all out for the world to see. Everyone should pat themselves on the shoulder. Blogging and sharing is a beautiful thing. So glad so many are doing it.

Kid’s Are So Spoiled These Days. I Just Never Knew How Much Until Yesterday

So Yesterday, I was out on my regular shopping and I came across this kid who looked like she was 6 or 7 years old and her mother in the same aisle. I was looking at stuff and all of a sudden the kid sees something she likes, and then all of a sudden she says Mommy can I have this? The mother said no you cannot have that, the kid started to make a huge fuss and ask why? I want it now, and treating the mother terribly, then the mother said no again and the child started to cry and scream out, I was just watching this whole thing from afar and I was about to intervene, but I said you know what? I am not going to do anything. The Mother said, that’s it were going home and she said your punished, and I am taking away your cell phone. So they took off without buying anything in the store. The mother got so furious. Never mind all that, but cell phone at age 6-7? You have got to be kidding me right? I was at a loss for words that such a young child who barely got out of playing with baby toys and plastic and in the colouring phase that has a cell phone. I cannot believe how spoiled children have become. They do anything to get what they want, but I really commend this mother who kept saying no to her child. I guess the mother came to a point and put her foot down and not let her have that, but the cell phone thing really turned me off.

I just cannot believe it, I never had my first cell phone until I was 18 years old. I was so happy with my crayons, I was so happy playing with my little dolls, I was so happy with the creativity, and imagination I had when I was a kid. I did crafts, I created so many things, I drew things, I did arts and crafts with glue, coloured paper, and so much more. Now kids rely on technology to do the thinking for them and now everything revolves around keyboards and they cannot do a day without them which is pretty sad. Before I would see a lot more kids outside playing, riding bikes, playing road hockey and doing outdoor things, but now the residential streets are more quiet and kids are inside playing video games or are on the computer or texting with cell phones to other friends. If the parents keep saying yes for the kid to have the latest gadgets and if they parents don’t say no, the child obviously becomes spoiled so much and just one day when you say no, they make a big stink about it in the store, they start to threaten the mother or father at the store, they start to make a big scene, but how will we teach our children about saving money? How will we teach our children about not getting everything their classmates or friends have? How kids should not copy other people and be their own person.

I remember there was so many things that came out, and my parents always taught me just because somebody else has something it doesn’t mean that you should have it too. My parents taught me a lot when I was growing up, and I was content and happy with what I had. They told me that kids in the world don’t have toys to play with, food to eat, and other things in life, and a lot of those children in impoverished countries and places where they don’t have running water, create their own games, create their own toys and play with their friends, relatives, siblings. Its very important to realize that when kids are too spoiled and the parents always say yes to their children and they don’t get what they want, the parents need to sit down and talk to their kids, they need to teach kids values, lessons and tell them to watch videos on how kids live in third world countries, get them to realize that these kids have it so good, they have a roof over their heads, food to eat, and necessities of life. Kids should not complain that they don’t have an Ipod or the latest gaming console, or the latest cell phone or something. They should be fortunate enough and always be thankful to their parents for giving them a good life, for giving them more important things in life rather than material things. Materialism is unbelievable and when kids grow up to be spoiled and always get what they want, then they will do that to their kids and their kids will do that to theirs.

Sit down with your kids, talk to them, do something that will benefit them in the future. Kids should work more on their personalities, morale, quality, and start gaining responsibility. When kids learn at a young age, the future will be bright for them, and when they exercise the good things in life and stop making a big fuss in a store because they didn’t get what they wanted, should be a good lesson. Yesterday when I was shopping like I said with the mother and child who had a cell phone, that did it for me, and I just had to write about it, in today’s blog. I am so concerned on how spoiled kids have gotten and it needs to stop. I cannot stress it enough. Parents give their children a lot of freedom, they give them way too much than they can really handle. It’s time to say no and teach kids that having everything others have is not a great thing. don’t copy other people, be your own person and so what if other kids laugh, it all begins with the big figures in their lives which are their parents. Try it out. spend time with them and teach them. It’s the best way to go.

 

Talin’s Top Kitchen Gadgets & Machines

Hello! Today I am here to talk to you about my favourite and top gadgets and machines to use in the kitchen. The kitchen is one of my favourite spots in my house. I love to cook, I love to organize, I love to invent my own dishes and use spices, herbs and different types of food to create something new. I love cooking something different everyday for my family to have a variety of foods every week. I don’t like to make a lot because I am not a left over person.. I am a perfectionist when it comes to great tasting food. I am one of those people who take time to cook, and keep my area clean of debris and mess. These gadgets and machines help me do so. Now, here are my gadgets and machines starting from #10

I Like The Internet Very Much, I Love To Communicate

In The last 14 years to almost 15 years now, since I started using the internet, I can remember when it was dial up and used to keep the phone line occupied most of the time, now the innovation of the internet has become more advanced and it’s switched over to Cable which is awesome, so that the phone does not get busy all the time when emergency phone calls are made. More over, I’d like to bring the internet to my personal level and how much I like the internet. I started by small steps to get to know computers, to get to know how to operate the internet, how to search, how to get the information I want right away. I am so happy with what the internet has become now. Information is transmitted immediately and instantly around the world. You can be in California and you can e-mail somebody in Italy and it will get there in an instant, or when you want to e-mail someone from Canada right to Australia, it will go in seconds. Technology has become awesome and it has made the world a smaller place. E-mail and typing has taken over and post offices, paper and pens are stacked up at the stores and I see no one really buying notebooks, pens, pencils anymore, It is great for the environment, but it hurts a lot of business’s but I also like to write and use pens too when I am in Bible Study and when I make shopping lists when I go out and more. I do not want to forget my penmanship. Further more, Skype, webcam’s are used to talk to family and friends around the world. Its an incredible tool to use, but to be careful with the internet too as it can be a dangerous place also. It all depends on how you use the internet and how you portray yourself.

Social Networking, Media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Pinterest, Tumblr, WordPress, Google, Linkedin, and so many other social media sites make the world a smaller place by finding family, girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, school mates, colleagues, and people you have met in your life to keep in touch with them. I cannot even begin to describe how I appreciate the internet. Or else I would have never found people and I would have never communicated with people whom I have not seen in ages. I am glad that the internet exists for great things only. One of the greatest things I like to do on the internet is read, do research on my favourite things, subjects, topics, discover new recipes, finding certain things on the internet, I have been looking for, reading about history, cultures, the world, and geography, as well as researching the places I have traveled and so much more. The internet is a tool where anything and everything can be searched. Its a great thing and I am so glad I have the internet. To be honest, I’d be lost without it. It is like my communication and news tool of the world besides the newspapers and television.

Now for safety and security while being on the internet. It’s a great idea to get a really great quality virus scanner and virus protector for your computer and internet. Be careful who you chat with and be careful who you add on your social networking profiles. People can misuse others, people and manipulate others, and do terrible things. It is very important to not just chat on any chatting websites. Do not give personal information, passwords, and other information to other people. no matter who they are. Things can be used against you and you have to always watch out and be very careful on things because whatever goes on the internet will always stay there forever and you need to really exercise caution. The internet can be a great place, but it is all on how you treat it, how well you take care of yourself online and not do anything that will jeopardize your future. Enjoy your internet and enjoy what you do, but always be mindful and take precautions. It can save a lot of hassle in the long run. Always protect yourself.

The London 2012 Olympics – The World Getting Together

In Just about 2 Months from now we will be witnessing the London 2012 Olympics on our TV screens and computers and some will get to go there, compete, and be part of something great. I just love countries, different people gathering together for Olympics which make the world such a smaller place when people get together in one city of the world, the adrenaline, people, the games, the incredible athletes. I love it when the opening ceremony starts and the ending. I believe that the world’s people can live and be together at peace, but it takes extra effort. Athletes from Africa, Oceania, Americas, Europe, Asia and other parts of the world will be participating with an array of sports and games such as Archery, Swimming, Hand ball, Fencing, Volleyball, Tennis and so many more sports.

The Beauty of the Olympics show true diversity and the reunion of different types of people of our beautiful world and of our beautiful sights of humanity, society and among other important things. It is a fabulous idea of having this so as people of our world make friends all over the world, be part of something great in the world and so much more.. It’s a great sight to see. I am so impatient in watching the ceremonies, and among the sports too. I am so passionate about culture, and I want to learn more about the Olympics, I want to learn and keep learning about different heritages, backgrounds, and among other things. I love to learn and I am willing to learn anything. I unfortunately cannot make it to London for the 2012 games, but I will be watching on TV and on my computer.

It really does not matter to me who wins, who loses. All that counts is that they are there representing countries, they have the poise and energy. I am sure the athletes now, are in vigorous training and practicing. Its great and it gets people moving and fit. A lot of these athletes, have dedicated their lives to a certain sport or sports and they are dedicated to what they do, and practice and keep the sport alive. I am excited for the Olympics. I love this world!

So Many Inconsiderate Drivers Out There Who Cause All This Traffic

In Life one of the most annoying and something I do not like is inconsiderate drivers who drive so much slower than the speed limit, hold up traffic for others, who are constantly in the wrong lane. This issue has my blood boiling. I have never seen such terrible drivers in my whole entire life and that is what causes accidents, and bumper to bumper traffic. If some people knew how to drive properly, traffic and accidents would never happen. All accidents and traffic can be preventable. Accidents can happen from impaired driving, drunk driving, texting while driving, distractions, and crazy drivers who think speeding very fast is so cool. It’s not. I have encountered so many scenarios on the highway’s, freeways, especially and people do not know how to drive on them. Some people are scared to drive on it and I can tell. It is that simple, if your afraid to drive on a high speed highway, do not drive on it. People do not realize that super slow driving, causes traffic, causes delays and accidents. A huge truck can be driving by, or some driver doing the exact speed limit and a bit over, goes toward the very slow driver on the left or center lane and having to brake so they won’t hit the car up front. It causes wear and tear on vehicles and its not a good thing. People need to exercise good driving skills and think about where they are on the road when doing that.

Sometimes its beyond me how some people get a license to drive, how people can pass their driving exam. I have seen such terrible parking its unbelievable. I used to be terrible parker, but I kept trying and trying until I was good at it. Now I have no problems reverse parking, parking forward, parallel parking. Traffic is the number one cause of slow and inconsiderate drivers. People who don’t know how to drive and people who don’t know the basics of driving and driving etiquette, should stay off the roads, and go to driving school, take more classes and learn the rules. If some people exercise this and if they use the common sense, then everything will go smoothly. I am not saying everyone is bad in driving, I am just targeting those who do not give consideration and courteousness to other drivers who need to get to important functions, work, and going to places that are of an emergency. It is very important to consider, to respect other drivers and to share the road equally.

It is super important to share the road. You can’t just think that you own the road and everyone must follow your lead and your rules. It does not simply go like that. Everyone must consider each other, everyone should work together to maintain our roads, speeds, and traffic. We can minimize traffic a lot, save time and get to our destinations a lot quicker if people work together. We all share a city and our city roads, and highways. lets get serious on driving and lets get going. Slow drivers need to take the side streets, but highway driving is important too. So lets get it together and lets create equal space for us all.

Talin’s Helpful Tips In The Kitchen And Organization

Hello All! Today, I am going to talk to you about tips on how to keep your kitchen organized and clean at all times. I know that is easier said than done right? I know its one of the most busiest places in your home with all the cooking, and preparing food daily, entertaining guests, and the whole thing can be a hassle. Well, I am here to help you make your kitchen hassle free, clear of mess, and efficient ways to cook, clean, and organize your kitchen in simple easy steps as well as what to refrigerate and what not to. Well, lets start shall we?

How to Organize Your Fridge:

Now, this is a huge problem in most households probably, and this took me many months to figure out what to do with my fridge and what I can do to keep it organized and visible with everything. I do not like to get so much of everything from the grocery store. I am one of those people who don’t over shop for things. I like to finish what I see in my fridge before I go out and buy again. Unless there are people coming over, or if you have a large to a small family. It depends on how much you can store in your fridge, but once something finishes, I go back to the grocery store which is not even 5 minutes away and I get out and leave. I save so much money that way and my life will be a lot easier with organization.

Here is what to refrigerate after opening. It is important to put soya sauce, any types of barbecue sauce, gourmet sauces, ketchup, peanut butter, jams, cheese whiz, jello pudding, pudding, we get from the grocery store to preserve its freshness. Never put these things in your pantry after opening. Its a no no. Although same don’t have a refrigerate after opening, but you have to so that it won’t go stale and it does if you do not put it in there.Always look at expiration dates, always clean your fridge once a week.

I like to make separate bins of fruits, vegetables, citrus fruits, keep them in separate bins, then keep the eggs in the egg carton. Don’t transfer the eggs to other places. Keep a section for your toast breads, keep a section for yogurts, milks, and other dairy products like cheese, then another section put all your jams, peanut butter and other condiments. Then in one section put other foods that you have, but always organize and create space so that it won’t overlap everything and get on top of each other. Always get a run through of what you have in your freezer and fridge and do an inventory of what you have, and whatever you don’t go to your local grocery store and stock up on the items your missing. this way you will see what you have and don’t have and so that you don’t buy too much of something that you don’t need. When things are on sale people go and jump at it like no tomorrow, it doesn’t mean you need to get a whole bunch of it, because if you do and don’t use it and it sits for months or a few weeks, it won’t be good anymore and it will go bad. Its money down the drain. even when its on special.

How to Keep your Kitchen Clean at All times — Especially when cooking and after cooking

The kitchen is one of my favorite places to be and cleanliness is number one to me. I am so picky and a clean freak. During when I cook, I am so cautious of food getting on the counter tops and cook space, so I wash my fruits and veggies thoroughly, then I like to use a nice cutting board and  I chop everything preventing any of it to get on the counter and i clean off the cutting board and put every bit of it in the dish I am cooking up. After I am done using something, I automatically wash what I am not using anymore. So in the end you won’t have mountains of dishes to wash. Its a great idea to wash everything, and then you can focus on just cooking the food after all the preparations are complete. saves a whole lot of time too. then all you need to do after, is just wash some plates and the pots and your good to go. Dish cloths, hand towels and oven mitts should be washed regularly, and folded away neatly in a drawer.

Cleaning your kitchen counters with warm water and vinegar is so important. do that at least once a week. sometimes more. depending if your dealing with meats, but its always a good idea. do not use other chemicals on your surfaces. Not good. Vinegar and water and its also good for mopping the floors.

How to Keep your Pantry Organized

Now one of the things in the pantry I cannot stand are bags. I like to take out pasta, bulgur, sugar, peanuts and other nuts and seeds, and go get containers and storage containers with first washing them before using and putting them all in different containers. I like to keep my Pantry Organized too. you put your oils, and vinegars in one spot, then you put grains in one spot, breakfast cereals, pancake mix, oatmeal, cake mixes, jello packets, and other things stored properly. Like I said if you have something, do not buy until its finished with.

How to Have an Organized Kitchen All around

Some kitchens are small, and some kitchens are big, but it all depends on you and how you want to organize your kitchen, but everything has its place. Its important to have pots in one spots, pans, pyrex and other pans in one spot. All utensils, cooking utensils, in one spot, your machines, gadgets should be in a cabinet stored in your lower cabinets. plates, cups, glasses, in one side. It is important to keep organized and you will see a difference.

When you maintain your kitchen and when you have everything organized. your life will be much easier, and when you know people are coming over, prepare everything in advanced so that you won’t spend hours in the kitchen when you can be with your guests in your home a lot longer and have good conversations, instead of running to the kitchen every few minutes. Lay out everything in front of them so that you prevent several trips to the kitchen. Preparation is key to organization in the kitchen. always think ahead.

Well, there you have it. my tips and tricks to keeping your kitchen tidy, organized and clean… Cleanliness is very important. Enjoy your kitchen.

Some People Come In Your Life As A Blessing, Some Come As Lessons

There are so many things that are important in life to know and understand all types of people, knowing how to read people, knowing how to differentiate between being with the wrong people and the right people. It is super important to surround yourself always with different types of people and get to know their mind set and to know their personality, traits, attitudes, actions, their trail of thought about things. Its so imperative to know this. Some people come into your life as blessings because they are the right type of people to be with who are true to you, who would never lie to you, who would never betray you and your trust, someone who will always be your backbone, someone who will be part of your life and stay their with no strings attached. Some people come into your life as lessons. Sometimes friendships, relationships, do not pan out to be the way you would have expected to, and that is a learning experience on seeing people’s true colors to come out and see how a personality, attitude and character come into place with time. With time you will get to know people, and some people have the gift to read people instantly and know what they are all about with certain keywords, eye, facial movements, and body language.

Physical movements and the eyes tell a lot about a person and some have the ability to look at people in the eye and see things others cannot see. We all need to be educated on how to read people and how to be good judges of character. It will help you in the long run in future friendships, relationships, and everything else. It is very important to be careful who your trust and give your whole heart, mind and soul to. We can easily be fooled by people who have the ability to say things that we want to hear and try to convince us and persuade us to change our minds and mindsets, but that is something that is very tricky. Learning valuable lessons in life is important. It helps us grow, it helps us prepare ourselves for endless possibilities, and new things in life we have yet to experience. There are all types of people in this world, there are so many personality traits, so many things that are into the factor. The more were educated, the more were capable of handling people, handling vulnerable stages in ones life. We need to learn to not trust easily and we need to learn to not give in 100% unless your 100% certain and sure about what you do in life. Sometimes life can throw hard balls, but we need to be strong and we need to close a chapter in our life and start another.

Life is too short. Things happen for a reason, everything in life that happens are for a valid reason, people come in and out of your life and that is another reason. Were all on our own separate journey’s in life and most importantly who we take with us on that journey and who we associate with. Be happy, positive, confident, optimistic in life. If things are rocky, unstable and miserable for you now, always remember that everything works out in the end. God is always there to protect us and to watch over us. Learning valuable lessons in life and acting on it is something that will benefit you in future. Although sometimes people do not think it will, when you least expect it, something great will come out of everything with patience, perseverance, and determination. When we expect it, and when we keep doing that, it sometimes will take longer and it will not be the result you were looking for. don’t have too many expectations, don’t jinx yourself, don’t over exert yourself with things. Let the right people come naturally. Eventually God will place you with the right crowd, and things will make sense.

I know that sometimes things do not make sense at all with how life is and how people are altogether, we need to focus on the blessings in our lives and then deal with our lessons. Make the impossible, possible, with no regrets, no turning back and just do what is best for you and do what you can to pursue your own happiness and your own dreams and wishes. It will come true. Where there is a will, there is a way for everything. Try it out, you will see the difference in no time. Do not worry, be happy and get on track with life.
