Clear The Incredible Shampoo — Heidi Klum’s Commercial

A few days ago I saw a commercial on TV with Heidi Klum advertising and promoting an all new shampoo, and Yesterday I had gone shopping, and I remembered this commercial and as I passed through the beauty, hair care aisle of the store, I took a look at the shampoo, and so I thought for a few moments of whether or not I should try this, but then I read the back label of the shampoo, and I decided okay, what the heck, I will give this a try, so I bought this shampoo, and came home and I didn’t use it until tonight, so as soon as I started to lather my hair and my scalp with the shampoo, I could automatically feel the difference when I was massaging it through my scalp and hair. It was so incredible and the best shampoo I have used so far. My hair feels so amazing now, and when I blow dried my hair, my hair looks so much healthier and it looks like Hollywood hair now. I love it a lot. Heidi Klum is a goddess. I recommend this shampoo to anyone who has real hair problems and psoriasis or other skin ailments of the scalp. It does wonders. I am going to try the 7 day challenge for my hair and see it because they said its a 7 day challenge, but so far the first day is amazing.

I am saying bye to all the other shampoos I used before. I will just use Dove and Clear for my shampooing, cleaning needs. My hair smells so great and I love the way I can manage it, the way it feels, It feels so healthy.

What shampoo do you use? Will you try the Clear Shampoo? The clear shampoo is a curvy style bottle, its like a lavender colour and its not a bad size for shampoo. Here is the link:

Enjoy and be amazed. Remember it depends on the persons hair and depends on it per person.

 

Dance Like No One Is Watching – De stress Your Life

In life some of us tend to lose sight of what is beneficial for us and our well-being and a lot of us are so busy with our daily routine, busy life schedules, balancing work, school, family, friends, activities, travel time, and balancing of just time for yourself. Some of us get distracted and get stressed out and think so much about things and don’t have the energy to do what you want to do sometimes, and life’s challenges get in the way with providing for your family and for yourself and it takes a lot to make ends meet for some and it is a crazy time in life where prices and cost of living is increasing year by year and it has become so difficult and were all going crazy with how to keep up, and among so many things in our lives. I know its a challenge and a big battle that a lot of people face on a daily basis.

Now, you are probably wondering why I chose such a title like Dance like No one is watching, This sentiment I am expressing is to always be happy and always be positive with great outlooks on life and I know it is easier said than done to put away life’s daily stresses that prevents us to be happy and positive because I know stress is the biggest culprit of everything in life and it shouldn’t be. Dancing, finding time and joy in your life is very important. No matter how terrible you think the way you dance, you are the one in your life and the way you portray your happiness is the way you feel to express yourself. You don’t owe anybody an explanation as to why your happy as to why you feel that certain way at that time frame. Always know that you are special and the way you dance, the way you express joy should really be about how you feel on the inside and that is something so incredible.

Some people say what if people laugh at me? What if people see how ridiculous I look when I dance and express joy? Just remember to never listen and to never watch them when you are dancing and having a great time. I know some of us are not good at dancing or anything, but it doesn’t matter how you dance, its how you feel its important. Never settle for anyone’s opinions and go for what you want to do. If it makes you happy go for it. De stress your life, be happy, do things that will put a smile on your face, be with others who make you smile and who put light into your life, spend time with yourself, take time to enjoy yourself, take time out of your busy life, and just unwind and take care of yourself. I know that is hard to do when your battling with Kids, School, Education, Life, Work, A Relationship, Marriage, Friendships, Activities and other things that mean the world to you, but always try to find time out of it all. I know it takes a balance for everything, but always know that you are who you are in the end and that smile on your face lights up the whole world. Keep smiling, keep on dancing like no one is watching, laugh like no one hears you, and you will see how your life will change.

It all starts with you on how you see your life and it is up to you. All the best to you and wishing you happiness, health, success and everything else.

Introducing You “Vahe Tilbian” A Fantastic Performer, Singer, Dancer

Hello everyone, I would like to introduce you to a long time friend of mine of 8 years and his name is Vahe (VAH-HEY) Tilbian. We met through an Armenian Youth Organization in Canada and When I flew to Vancouver, British Columbia back in 2005 for the Armenian Youth Sports Weekend that took place in July, 2005, We met officially and became friends. Since then we have been in touch and hes such a fabulous, talented and incredible person who is so artistic in performing, singing, dancing. His passion and dedication toward the art of music, dancing and the whole entertainment world is so wonderful and beautiful. His voice is so therapeutic, beautiful and brightens the room when you enter. Vahe possesses so much beauty and demonstrates his dedication toward his culture, and in both Ethiopian and Armenian. Below is his biography and what he has to say in his own words from his Facebook page Vahe Music.

In his own words, here is a mini biography about him and his performing history.

http://www.facebook.com/Vahe.music

My interest in music and dance started early on as I was and still am surrounded by a very musical family. At age 3 I used to go listen to my aunt and uncle rehearse with their band (Sevan Band). This was later strengthened by classical piano lessons for almost 7 years and singing in the Armenian Church choir. Later also joined the Motley Singers of Addis Ababa for a few years as lead tenor.
Armenian by origin, Ethiopian by nationality and still living in Addis Ababa Ethiopia. Currently working on an album which I am hoping will be an eclectic mix of these two very unique cultures, tied together under an alternative genre of music.
Currently also working with Z Beyaynetus band, Kenny Allen and the 251 as well as opening the weekly show and singing supporting vocals with Zeritu Kebede.

An artist, an entertainer.
I’m a singer/songwriter, a dancer, a writer trying to make myself heard out there to whoever is interested in hearing, in listening. To whoever is interested in looking and seeing, interpreting and deducing.

I Met Kevin Bacon Before – It Was An Awesome Encounter

Back in the day in 2004 nearly 9 years ago back in August, My family and I were coming back from shopping in the evening and what happened was we were on a busy street coming back to our place, and all of a sudden we see bright lights, cranes, and trucks used for movies. So we stopped on the side and parked the vehicle, and I went up close and personal to the scene and I had heard that Director and Film Producer Atom Egoyan was there producing and filming the movie “Where the Truth Lies” with Kevin Bacon, Colin Firth, Alison Lohman, and all the actors were there and filming inside this Chinese restaurant and I finally know how they created thunderstorms and rain from the outside. I was so excited when I heard those actors were inside, but I only met Kevin Bacon and Alison Lohman and I was not able to meet Colin Firth as he was still filming inside and We were not permitted to go inside.

So As Kevin Bacon was about to go back to the other scene to film in Downtown, Toronto, I yelled for his name Saying Kevin! He stopped and he smiled with me and I asked to take a picture with him and I took a picture with him and I said thank you so much, and he said anytime dear, so he went to the other location. I mean talk about being at the right place at the right time. I couldn’t believe I met Kevin Bacon before. He is such a wonderful actor and he’s been in so many movies, with so many actors and actresses and I feel like I connected with all of them once I met Kevin Bacon. I remember the degrees of Kevin Bacon, so I said I am 0 Degrees from Kevin and then 1 Degree from Kyra Sedgwick which is his wife, and then all the other actors that are associated with him and the movie directors, producers. I will never forget that day. It was an amazing night. It does take a lot of hard work to produce these movies and it takes a lot of man hours to have it all done.

I remember then taking the pictures and having them developed instantly. I had taken the pictures in the other ordinary cameras that wasn’t a digital camera, so I started taking pictures of random things so that I can have that picture. It didn’t come out the way I expected, but it is still something and a memory that will live on with me forever. I have had so much luck with meeting celebrities, TV anchors, reporters and other famous faces of the world, and it happens when I least expect it, like when I was in Vegas how I saw Jerry Bruckheimer, Ted Danson, George Eads, and Jorja Fox filming CSI Las Vegas on Fremont Street last year in October 2012. It is incredible how you follow these people on television and someday you cross paths with them and you are in the same atmosphere as them. It’s so incredible. I hope to one day meet so many of my favourite celebrities and I hope I can have the pleasure of doing so. Lets hope and lets see where the future takes me, but its amazing how I can meet these people. I know they are people like you and I, and I know they are human and they work and make a living too, but its pretty amazing how movies and shows are done. I can finally put it all together.

Have you met celebrities? Have you had an encounter with any famous person?

A Wonderful Dream – It Was Fabulous – Was on The Late Show Jimmy Fallon

Last night and lately I have been having re-occurring dreams after I fall asleep and last night was just so interesting. I just did not want to wake up, it was so good and awesome. You know how sometimes you don’t want to wake up because a dream is just so fabulous and you don’t want to stop having that dream? Last night did it for me. It was so amazing and fabulous. I had this dream that I was flown to New York City to be part of and be on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and we were discussing my upcoming documentary and then a movie that I will be part of, and acting with Matt Damon in a movie. It was so awesome. So then I was interviewed by Jimmy Fallon and he and I got along so well and we became great friends. So I had flown back to Canada, and a few months later Jimmy had called me and asked me to be on his show again and this time about other things and just coming by to talk about stuff about my upcoming projects and also being a guest star on Hawaii 5-0, then being on The Big Bang Theory too. So That was aired on Television.

As I was heading back to the Airport and I was heading towards my gate to get back to Canada, several people stopped me at the airport and recognized my face and said, Hey you’re Talin the woman who was on Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon and I said, yes that is me, and so then they stopped to take pictures with me, and ended up putting it on twitter and Facebook instantly and I got to keep the pictures. As soon as I had gone to my gate, even some of the workers at the airport recognized me. So I was on TMZ, and in the people, and entertainment magazines shortly after. Then after boarding my flight, coming back to Canada, I was landing at the airport and I had claimed my baggage at the baggage claim and as soon as I was coming out, other recognized me and until I went to my vehicle after being picked up, people were getting my autographs and I was being photographed with fans. It was an amazing dream and then as I went on Jimmy Fallon’s Show, I was on so many talk shows after and I started traveling more on planes heading to Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and so many more places to do talk shows.

I just did not want to wake up from my dream. It was going so well. In reality I am a fan of Jimmy Fallon and his show. He does interesting things and I started liking him from Saturday Night Live and among his movies he has done. a Couple of my friends met him while at the Chicago Airport and they said, Jimmy is just one of the coolest guys they have met. He is so nice and very personable in person and hes a very chill and incredible person. I keep on having these dreams lately about being on these talk shows. It is crazy. Does it mean it is going to happen? Is there a meaning to all this? Because it is starting to really get to me and happily. I keep waking up with a smile. These dreams just keep on happening without my control. It feels incredible. What do you think it means always being in the spot light? What do you think about what it is? I don’t know, but it would be amazing if it really happens. I would be on cloud nine.

What dreams have you had? Have they come true? Do you have dreams that almost always come out? Would love to hear about them. Wishing you the best.

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

Due to popular demand, I am posting this again….

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.

Beyonce’s Lip Syncing During President Obama’s Inauguration – No Big Deal

A few days ago during President Barack Obama’s Inauguration celebrations that took place in Washington DC, There were several performers, floats, parades and honouring Martin Luther King on his day, President and First lady dance, among parties, gatherings, and everything else, and it was such a beautiful day honouring The presidents second term into Office. I wish him all the best and congratulations on being the USA President once again, However something has been in the media that I am not really thrilled about and that is poking fun at Beyonce and her Lip Syncing. I know that it is not right to Lip Sync, but that shouldn’t give the right for people to really concentrate on what she did during the ceremonies and the celebration. It doesn’t really matter if she lip synced or not.

Now this day in age the media is so revolved around really pointless things that happen and what celebrities do and how they do it and sometimes its just way too much to really concentrate on bogus and pointless things that cause drama, and that cause the public and media to go haywire and memes, postings, statuses, tweets and other things that are not good and its not cool. I think this world is facing a lot more challenges, problems and issues that media must take control on. Not some Lip syncing performance. Lets focus on getting guns out of our schools, streets, and out of peoples reach, as President Obama had stated and in our society, lets focus on putting 0 Tolerance on bullying, lets focus on stopping wars, lets focus on important things that our society is in dire need of a makeover with all these terrible issues going on, and pointless and terrible crimes committed against humanity. That is what we should focus on changing, fixing and raising awareness on. Not when a celebrity lip syncs. It is very ridiculous and absolutely absurd. The media is what makes celebrities on their flaws and on their highest and lowest moments and when the media gets too involved in their lives, that is what gets them their paycheck to cover news stories that are absolutely ridiculous no matter what it is, no matter how it sounds.

I think it is time to leave these things alone and do something about society, violence, and serious issues. It is very important. Beyonce, don’t worry you did an excellent job and you are an incredible, talented performer and I support you every step of the way. Job well done and congratulations. It was a lovely inauguration. All the best to the next 4 years in office and lets make these changes on society.

 

Days Are Getting Longer. I Like This Time Of Year

In the last 2 weeks or so, I have noticed the days getting longer and spring is not so far away now. I cannot believe were almost at the end of January. The first month of 2013 is almost done and now were going into February. I really like it when its visibly noticeable when the days are getting longer. by 5 or so it would have been dark already, and now its almost 6pm where its getting dark. I guess everyday or every 2 days the days seem to get longer by a couple of minutes here and there, and the morning sunrise and light seem to come earlier. I really like it when days get longer. Winter makes everything dark, dull, cold, freezing, and nights are so long. In the summertime we have daylight past 9pm and even close to 10pm. Now some people who go to work in the dark and come home in the dark.

Now there are freezing cold temperatures this week in Canadian cities, towns, but we have been very lucky with the amount of snowfall we have been receiving, but I should not speak so soon as there is about a month and a bit of winter left. I also really enjoy when the days get longer, When I am driving or when I am looking outside and just admiring the light. Its amazing. This time of year is my favourite. I actually pin point when it gets dark and when it gets light. I will see tomorrow how further we get with the light. Every week it increases. I will keep a look out for that everyday. :)

 

 

 

 

A Well Traveled Me – Airlines, Airplanes, Airports

Today, I was on the highway passing by the Airport and all of a sudden this amazing and wonderful feeling came to me, and as I saw planes landing, taking off and seeing the beautiful Lester B Pearson Airport of Toronto the Greater Toronto Airports Authority Airport code YYZ, I automatically came into my travel mode, and I wish I had my passport with me, and I had this sudden urge to go to the airport and pick any flight, get a quick ticket and fly somewhere. I am so in love with that Airport and every time I pass by it, when I drop people off, when I pick people up, when I am inside of it ready to travel somewhere, is something so different, and I love it so much. Airlines and Airplanes are something that I love. I even like to watch planes land and take off nearby the Airport. I have gone there a few times and I just love the sound, the enormous planes landing, the speed, the beauty of these planes. It makes me realize how lucky and fortunate I have been to have traveled on airplanes and all sizes, and different destinations of the world. I feel so incredible when I get on a plane, when I get to a place and especially when the Airplane has left the gate, and reversing back and gaining momentum and ready to head to the tarmac runway, and the captain pilots navigate the plane to the right tarmac, and when the flight attendant and when they should the emergency drill is also something I look cautiously on all the time, and then as soon as that is complete the plane then starts up more, the wings begin to flap.

Then when the plane starts to accelerate, it gets more exciting to me and I could see all of the Pearson Airport and I could see the highway nearby getting faster and faster and then as we take off, the streets, the town, the cars, the buildings, places, all get tinier and tinier, and as the plane goes up in the clouds, its such a great feeling, and when the pilot announces that were over 35,000 feet in the air, it feels amazing. I never get scared or frightened. I’ve been on so many planes, I’ve lost count. I just love it so much. Its something that I have grown to love, appreciate and feel it. I thank my family for providing me the chance to travel, and experience all this. I will never forget my experiences, I just love it. A lot of my friends, a lot of people always ask me questions on airlines, airport, traveling and everything. I have seriously lost count on how many people have asked me about them and what I would recommend they fly with, what airline companies are the best to fly with, what service is like, how the flight attendants handle situations, how professional, courteous and friendly they are toward passengers, so on and so forth. It all counts. Some have asked me questions on baggage requirements, as well as what to pack in carry on baggage, what is expected, getting through airport security faster and more efficient ways of packing, how to pin point where you have to go to your flight gate. People have also asked me what to do at the airport.

It is always a good idea to do your research, and do research well. When you are the traveler and traveling, it is your responsibility to get the required documents, to research on your airline, destination, airport, the airport map, and also being prepared with the right measurements, weight, and so much more to prevent more spending and to be stress and hassle free when you arrive at the airport, and always research on terminal, what airline your traveling with, where it is located in the airport and everything. Super important to know before you go. You can still ask me questions if you are unsure of something. I will be more than happy to help, assist you with anything, but its also good to do research on your own and find the information from great, reputable websites for information and you can ask your travel consultant, agent, tour operate for any concerns that may arise. Being prepared is very good to do. It saves hassle in the long run.

Safe and happy travels to you! Airlines, Airplanes, Airports are my passion, and its coming from a well traveled me. :) All the best!

My Favourite Movies Of All Time

Yesterday on Television, on TV Tropolis, they were showing some older films and I watched Airplane and Airplane 2: The sequel, and I really love those kinds of movies with that humour. most of the actors in the movie passed away in recent years. It is still hard to believe that Leslie Neilson passed away. Anyway, I know the movie so well, that I knew exactly what they are going to say or the next scene. It was so funny and I still laugh every time. Some movies you watch and watch again and still laugh like it is your first time watching it. Some movies you just watch once or twice, but the rest you can watch several times. i just don’t like the commercials when I watch the movies. I know there is a way to delete the commercials while watching a movie, but I don’t have that feature like TiVo or something. Anyway, Here are my movie choices of all time.

The Ugly Truth, Home Alone, Home Alone 2 Lost in New York, National Lampoons Vegas Vacation, Christmas Vacation, European Vacation, Airplane, Airplane 2, Weekend At Bernie’s, Dennis the menace, Father of the Bride, Mrs Doubtfire, Forrest Gump, My Girl, Naked Gun movies, Hot shots, hot shots part deux, Babies day out, Hangover, Hangover 2, Campaign, Vince Vaughn movies, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Bradley Cooper, Alex O’loughlin, and so many other actors movies and so many other movies. I am such a big movie fan, I love comedy, romantic comedy, I like the notebook, dear john, and I like to get new movies all the time, and go to the theater once in a while. It depends if it’s a really good movie. or else I just wait for the DVD or Blue Ray to come out to the stores?

What are your movie choices? What do you like to watch? What are your interests when it comes to entertainment? Soon in the coming weeks I will be doing critics on movies and what they mean to me and I will be giving my insight on them. I will be doing that soon. Stay tuned! Have a lovely day!

 

People’s True Colours Always Come Out, No Matter How or What Happens

In life, nothing is better than being honest with yourself and honest with other people who have trust in you and who have always believed in you. I truly believe that no matter how much you hide behind a curtain and no matter how it happens, people’s true colours always come out. No matter how it happens, it happens. I truly believe in that analogy. People can go years with hiding things from people, but no matter the outcome, it always comes out. So start being honest with yourself, start being honest with other people, and don’t try to hide who you really are. It is not good. I mean why hide yourself? Why hide your talents? I know some people can be shy and some people don’t want to share their true selves, but its something that gives us a sense of individuality, it gives us a time to shine with other people too. Why do this to yourself? Why prolong hiding, lying to others? Some people lie about their age, some people life about where they are from, some people lie about other things they do. Eventually it will come out. When people get suspicious of others, now there is the world of Google searching, there is the world of the internet. People are easily searched, and you’d be surprised on what you would find, and you would be shocked. I believe honesty goes a long way and that will build trust and that will be good for you and it will benefit you in the long run. So in the future if you think about hiding yourself from others, and who you really are, the colours come out, your lies come out, and so on and so forth.

I know some people feel the need to be in their own bubble, and not think about the consequences it may lead to, and people lose friends, people lose companionship, people won’t know what hit them. Actions speak louder than words in almost everything and people must take accountability, and responsibility for their own actions, but it depends on the situation you are in, but that should not matter. People always have a way of finding out and eventually play at their game. So be careful, be cautious, and live life without hiding. Show yourself, be honest, and you will see how people will appreciate you more and you will see how much it will change your life. It all starts with you and it all starts with how your portray yourself. All the best to you.

It’s Not The Years Of Your Life, It’s The Life Of Your Years

In life, there are things that some people take for granted and some are so concentrated on age and numbers rather than the quality versus the quantity of life that someone chooses to live. We all come from all walks of life, were all going through different journeys, we all go through problems in life, we come from different backgrounds, cultures, and races, some of us are tall, short, skinny, overweight, average, some have blonde hair, some of black hair, some have brown hair, but those are all what we have in our lives. Age is nothing but a number, years are nothing but a number, all I am saying is that it is the way you live your life in between those numbers which matter most.

Some people don’t even get a chance at life because it got cut short, some people die when they are born and some people don’t get lucky enough to experience life and it is unfortunate. God rest their souls and rest in peace to those who lost loved ones at any age. My thoughts and prayers are with you all who’ve lost people. It is so important to live life with quality. Because remember some don’t get the chance. It is crazy how the cycle of life works.

Live life to the fullest extent, be happy, be positive, make great and happy changes in your life, don’t dwell on the past, just keep going into the future, because when you look into the past so much, there really is nothing new to see, it will always going in circles, and you won’t see anything that changes. So the change is now in the present, do something that will benefit you, and we can alll make positive and great differences in the world. We need to be able to learn to trust ourselves, to attempt it, and to act on it. it is easier said, than done right? Well, we shouldn’t think that way. We should always try and do our best, and even if you fail, there is always room for improvement, there is always the chance to try again. Never say you cannot do it, because you can do it. Just look beyond uncertainties and look at what is possible in life because everything is possible. You just have to have confidence in yourself, and go with the flow.

Never sell yourself short, and always be who you are, enjoy your life, and I know we all make mistakes, sometimes its beyond our control, but always know how special and how great you truly are to the world, and all of us can shine, but sometimes some people are pre-occupied with the quantity of life instead of the quality, and time and time again I hear people say, when I retire I will do this, or when I turn this age I will do this, and some people don’t want to reveal their age, some people are shy of telling their age to people, and they say, you should never ask a person how old they are and some concentrate solely on all that, and its not very good at all. Age is nothing but a number. It is how you feel on the inside that matters, it is how you feel everyday that you wake up. Don’t ever feel the need that you have to hide your age to people. Be happy and enjoy and don’t get caught up in numbers, get caught up with life and live it.

Life is great, enjoy, laugh, love, live, and experience it, because remember some don’t. Believe in yourself, and you will see what difference it makes. All the best to you.

It Is Not About The Quantity Of Friends, Its About The Quality

In life we will come across so many people in our lives, and some think that the more friends you have the more popular you will be and the more better you will be, and that is wrong. You can have so many friends, you can hundreds of people being your friend and some people will be more concerned about having quantity instead of quality, well, that should not be. I’d rather have a few friends who will be by my side, to back me up, and to support, love and appreciate me for who I am. Everything should be mutual when it comes to friends. It takes two to tango and it takes both to be the backbone that keeps the friendships up. Also, don’t trust people so quickly, don’t give in so easily. Ask yourself a few questions, will they be loyal to you? will they back you up? How will they treat you? Will they use you? Unfortunately in society these days, you need to double triple check before you make friends with people and this day in age, trust has become so rare and there are people of all walks of life. Do you really want to put yourself in a predicament of hanging out with someone who will back stab, betray and use you?

In this life we live in now, we need to analyze people very well before we give our all, before we share our most personal stories and our life’s journey with them. It does take time to get to know someone, and friendships and good friendships take time to build. So you build your trust in accordance to how someone is, their actions, words, kindness, their honesty, their loyalty and the way they are to you and how they treat you. When you are out with friends at a restaurant, take a good look and observe, if they are rude to the waiter or waitress, or if they are rude to any other person, it makes you think and question, will they be like that toward me? Will they burst at me like that someday? Actions do speak a lot louder than words and then words and action play hand in hand with each other.

We must open up our eyes a bit more, be more observant, and not to trust people so easily. Take your time to get to know someone before you give it your all. You will know the quality and the friends you have, by just the way they are, you will know what to do whether to pursue the friendship or not. Disrespectful people who do not know how good they have it and take advantage of ones goodness, good heart, and those who do not care, and those who use you, those who spread rumours and share whatever happens to the world, is not a true friend. Some people do not even know the definition of a friend and that is so unfortunate. Take your time, don’t rush into friendships so quickly because you will be burned if you don’t choose your friends wisely and you can be hurt. I do not want anybody hurt.

My family, friends, fans, readers and all my other supporters, I want the best for everyone, and I am speaking through experience. I’ve been burned so many times from fake people, I’ve been hurt so many times, but all it takes is opening up your eyes, being more assertive, being more aware, being more observant of peoples actions, eye language, facial reactions, body language and more. It is so important to take a look at all of that. It will save the hassle in the long run and it will make you decide if they are the right friends for you and if you should continue it or not. It all depends on a persons personality and the type of friends to choose, but in the end look out for you. Don’t put everyone in one basket, balance it and don’t give in too quickly.

Just take your time. There is no rush to friendships. You will find the suitable people for you. It will take time and effort, but never ever think friendship will never happen for you. Just be patient and go with the flow.  You would not want to go through havoc and trouble. Just believe in yourself and know that there are types of people for you that are suitable. Just relax and take it easy. I’d rather have only a few friends I can trust, depend on and share stories and things with, rather than having hundreds, that will only be there part time and not full time. So just go with your gut instinct and I wish you all the best.

Get Me On The Ellen Show — Ellen Degeneres – Raising awareness about Bullying

In My life one of the most important things to me is raising awareness about Bullying and being Bullied. Nobody should be subject to bullies and the torture people go through because of it. It is so important to me to raise this important subject as it is not said enough. I know a lot of people have been bullied and a lot of innocent children are effected by it daily. I know that Ellen Degeneres on The Ellen Show always brings up this subject on bullying and I want to get on her show one day and discuss this with her because I have been through terrible bullying scenerios that has effected me and It will mean the world to me if I can have the opportunity to speak about it and my feelings on public television on her show. I want to make this big difference in the world. I care about people and our world so much and I want to protect people of our world as much as I can and I want to spread out positivity to our children, to the adults and everyone who has been effected by this terrible thing.

I want to do this for the humanity of our world, I want to better our society where people won’t be afraid to go to school, where people won’t be afraid to leave their homes to go to a certain function or join after school activities. I hope Ellen Degeneres and her team at the ELLEN SHOW read this. I want to express my thoughts, not only with words and blogs, but speaking about it on television, I want to travel not only to California on her show, but I want to travel and go to schools, and motivation speaking seminars. I LOVE HUMANITY, We are all one body, and were all one big family of the world and we should treat each other as one.

I have written about bullying before, but I cannot stress how important it is to really speak about it. It sickens me to see bullies get away with it and it even sickens me more when people who have been bullied take their own life because of all the pain and anguish. Like the saying goes, What goes around comes around. It will come back to haunt people who are bullies and that bully who took that certain persons life will have a lifetime full of haunts and nightmares I guarantee it. I want to do this not only for me, but for everyone in our world. I want to take a stand against bullying, I WANT TO PUT AN END TO IT AND PUT AN END TO IT NOW!

Time is of the essence. ITS TIME NOW!
