Smartphones and Tablets — Have They Taken Over Our Lives?

As mobile devices serve a good purpose in life to communicate with others with texting, calling, spending time with apps, and having fun with them, but there should be limits. I feel that human face to face communication is diminishing, and that mobile devices have gone out of control. Social skills and speaking is deteriorating as our tongue freezes up and cannot come up with conversations instantly, whereas it is easier to communicate with texts and writing messages, but I prefer the old fashioned way, where people come together, enjoy, create memories, laugh, talk and do fun things together, to put the phones down and actually verbally do the talking instead of the fingers. I know that it is a personal mobile phone and you can be on it 24 hours a day, but you do not need to be on it constantly.

I feel that smartphones and tablets and the constant changes to technology and gadgets are taking over some peoples lives and they can’t seem to put them down at all, they wake up with it, go to bed with it, they use the washroom with it, they eat dinner while being on them, they use it while at a coffee shop or restaurant among friends 90% of the time people get together and do not look at each others faces, and its just overwhelmingly taken over. what is the point of getting together with people when all that will be done is looking at screens? Where do we draw the line? Its become so bad that when people are physically together, they text each other when they are beside each other, and they communicate with their phone instead of looking at each other and moving their mouths.

I too have a smartphone mobile device, but I know my limits. I do enjoy my mobile device too, but I do not let it control my life, or my way of living. I will not let a screen device take over my life and who I am. Some people need to know limits, and when to put down the phone, like when someone is talking to you, when you are among a group of people, when you are in the washroom and so on and so forth. I sometimes go more than 12 hours without looking at my phone, I sometimes don’t look at it all day, as I do not let it control me.

Although mobile devices are important to have for emergencies and to contact people instantly, but some people overuse it to the point where things get out of hand and disrespecting others who are trying to talk to you when your head is so into that device, and its not healthy especially the radiation it produces. From your point of view, do you limit your use? What are your opinions about this issue? I would love to hear from you.  Know your limit and be within it.

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 all 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 to 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 it’s 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.

I Want To Be Your Moon Because I Want To Shine Brightness On Your Darkest Days Of Your Life

In life, we all have our moments of darkness when unfortunate things happen to us such as losing a loved one, being bullied by others, when we lose a job, when other bad things happen, and I am sure we all have our problems in life and we just want to find ourselves after such a terrible ordeal we’ve had in our lives. Do you ever wonder when you will find brightness even in the darkest hours and days of your life? Do you have feel like you will never find that light again because of the unfortunate things going on in your life? Your loved ones will help guide you and your true friends will stick by you too. I know this is going to sound strange coming from a blogger, but I am also here too. I want to be the moon to you because I want to shine brightness on your darkest days of your life, I want to be there for you, and if you have anything you want to talk about and if you have something on your mind that you want to share and everything, I am here to listen and I will do the best of my ability to give you advice and get you back on your feet. This morning, I found this quote on Facebook and It is such a powerful quote and it got me to think about how so many people in this world now are living in darkness because now there are so many problems happening in our world and it keeps on increasing. Never forget Me Talin Orfali, I am here for everyone and I want to be the moon in your lives. Never forget these words I say to you because I mean it and stick by to my words especially when it comes to making a difference in someones life, making positive and happy changes to ones life. It is what I am about and it is my life’s motto. I am very passionate about people, and I detest discrimination in every way. I have always told my family and friends, that I am here for you in your darkest days and in the brightest days, and they know that they can confide in me and tell me everything that is going on in their lives and they do tell me everything and that makes me feel great because they know that they can always trust me.

Anybody can trust me because I never share anyone’s problems with others and I keep it all to myself and when people request that they don’t want something shared or a secret to be told to anyone, I never blab and I never open my mouth to anyone because that is not my style and that is not how I was raised. I keep all that to myself and nobody ever knows about it because it is not cool to blab out things that were told to me in confidence. Now my friends respect me more because of that and because they know they can trust me. I really like that and I want to be the same friend to you all and I want to do the same not only for my family and friends, but I want to do it for you all too. If you have anything that you need to talk about, never hesitate. I want to make positive and happy changes in this world.

This world is in dire need of a make-over and I want to be one of the people to make a difference and I want to help the community around me and eventually all over the world. I know I keep bringing up that I want to get on television shows and having these big dreams of one day making it into the big world, but I have my reasons and the reasons being is that I want to do this for humanity and for society and as a human being I want to get out there and do my part in the world, I want to know and feel to myself that I have done my duty and my part in the world, not because I need to do it, but because I want to do it. There is a big difference in needing and wanting and I really want to do it, I really want to get out there and do this for our world and our lifestyles. It is very important to me and I will not give up no matter what comes in my way and whatever obstacle there will be to prevent me from doing so, and that will not stop me. I will always find a way to be the moon on the darkest days of people’s lives, because that’s just my style.

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.

Getting A Great Nights Sleep For A While Now – I am Happy

So many blogs ago, I had wrote about how difficult it was for me to fall asleep and tossing and turning in bed and not being able to wake up fresh, and for a few weeks now, I have been having a great nights sleep. I am so happy and thrilled about that. Before it would take me over an hour to fall asleep now it takes me about 10-15 minutes. It has improved so much. I guess because of my exercising and eating well and getting healthy is the case. I haven’t felt this energetic in a long time. I owe it all to healthy eating and exercise. I feel so great, and I feel the weight coming off and I have already lost about an inch or 2 off my waist and tummy area since I have been doing my pullie 250 times every morning, plus drinking a lot of water, and eating small portions rather than large portions. I am so relieved that things are working out for me and my social life is getting better, I feel more confident about myself, and I feel like I am on my way to a new body, and this time I am sticking to it because I found a painless way to exercise and its working very well for me.

Last night I got emotional and started to cry a bit because I feel like I have lost a whole lot of my young life with wearing dresses, and outfits that I should have started wearing at age 20, but now at 27, It is still not too late and I can still wear the dresses, outfits and go out in style without having to worry about wearing outfits bigger than my age. I saw this wedding dress in a dress boutique on the weekend and It had my name written all over it. It was the perfect dress and I would have said yes to the dress, but I do not have a boyfriend to begin with and that will come soon too. I feel it. I guess all my worry and stress is finally being lifted off and sleep is improving and my life is improving with making all these positive and happy changes in my life to feel good, to be healthy and to have better outlook on life. I am happy! :)

 

I Am Thinking About Going Back To School

Today, as I sat down, I did a lot of thinking and I am thinking about going back to school. I want to go back to school for journalism and professional writing for newspapers, magazines and hopefully, I can get on Oprah’s Magazine and write for her. I would love to write for magazines like Cosmopolitan, Flare, Chatelaine, Bride Magazines, House and Home, Kitchen Magazines, As well as Write for Ellen DeGeneres on her website, and Anderson Cooper. I am seriously thinking about also writing my very first book and compiling my blog entries into it and write about my blogging experiences. Hoping it will be a best seller in Book stores and online stores. I am so determined. I can do this! I just need to find a suitable course for me, and a good school that will help get results and quickly with finding a job and a career with these magazines or these awesome big figures in our world. Now that I think about it, I am going to give this school thing a shot. What have I got to lose? Nothing. I want to do this. I have found my passion in writing, and not only do I want to blog everyday, I also want to get out there and do something for people, to write, to try and inspire as many people as possible in this world, and to do things to help people out in this world.

Time to start searching on good schools, and get cracking on this. Lets do this Talin, Lets do this! :)

An Ugly Personality, Destroys A Beautiful Face.

In Life we will or have already encountered different people, different personalities, and some of which that are ugly ones. I know that personalities and our traits makes us who were are and we should be happy of who we are, but when someones personality is something that people cannot handle and deal with when it is an ugly one where we lose our trust and ability to accept it because of someones bad eye that the person has on others.  People are always concerned about how they look in public, and how they look all the time on their exterior, but that really doesn’t justify anything. People need to worry about who they are inside and how one portrays themselves in front of others. We need to look beyond that and fully analyze someone before putting our full trust in them. Before getting into anything with others, its a great idea to test, and analyze somebody by the random acts they do in front of you or in front of others. Are we willing to sacrifice ourselves and ruin ourselves with a personality that we did not fully test before getting into that relationship or friendship? We need to be so careful in who we hang out and give our time to. Nothing else really matters in this world except the fact that when you have a great personality and have developed great traits from your parents and when your parents have taught you to be respectful, kind, courteous, sensitive, and giving, it is all that matters in this world. People who don’t have these qualities should really exercise them and make it part of that persons life.

If you have been around hate, disrespect, insensitivity, unappreciative, negativity all your life, That is all your going to know, that is all your going to carry out in your life. People need to learn at a very early age as soon as possible. It is the parent’s responsibility to give out great values, quality, interpersonal skills, socialization, manners and a great personality where it can shine to the world and once we have a great personality, down to earth qualities, everything else will follow in life.  In Society these days, we need to really watch out. Some people are just out there for ones self worth and ones benefit. Which is why I really like this quote so much. People who develop these things from the beginning, it is so much easier to go through life. we can be more successful in friendships, life, relationships, in our work, in school, public, society. You will be surprised by how incredible it will be to one day walk outside and be with the general public and just see kindness and great personalities all around. It will be a great thing to see, but unfortunately it is not the case. It should be ones intuition and ones feeling to sense it all. Destroying a beautiful face is not worth peoples actions.

Everyone in this world is beautiful, everyone in the world has great qualities, but its that one thing that can make someone ugly. Ugliness is not something physical, its something that is in ourselves. Take steps to be beautiful at heart, mind, soul. It is what really should matter. Nothing else in the world should even intrude and get in the way. Develop a star personality today, You will see how much more beautiful you can get. People know the price of everything, but people do not know the value of it. Be a beautiful person inside. That is all. Do something that will change the face of society. You can do it. You will then see a positive and great change. So come on and get going!

Not In My Best Mood Today. It Has Been an Emotional Roller Coaster Today

As most of you may have read my previous blog to this one about the Manner less society today, that did hit quite a few peoples nerves. I know I received some comments that were not so pleasant to read, and from that, I have been having a really crummy day. I am not trying to be condescending and ranting about a certain issue, but I felt the need to express it. I see so many manner less people, that it has become unbelievable. If someone does not speak up to talk about it and to write about it? Then who will? I want to see a world of people that will be pleasant to each other, to be nice, to be polite, and respectful to one another and have a world of peace, happiness, positivity and love. If messages like the one I wrote does not get spread around and if etiquette is not taught to people at very young age, people will grow up to be unfriendly and impolite. I mean I did not mean for it to sound harsh which I did not, but I needed to say it. It has been on my mind to write about this topic for quite sometime now and you know its just so hard to bring up topics like this without someone or some people writing distasteful comments back to me.

I know that everybody has their own opinions and everything and you are entitled to have that, and I know that blogging is something that not everyone will agree with what is said and what is written, and sometimes it will hit a huge nerve on someone, but it is all about the blogging journey and not everything will be perfect all the time. I have been in a terrible mood all day and maybe I should not have brought up that subject, but In my heart and in my soul I really had to come out with it. I wrote a blog about not keeping things bottled up inside, and today I am taking my own advice to write about something I should have done a long time ago. I am not here to point fingers at anybody and I am not here to cause grief and trouble, but I believe in freedom of expression and freedom of speech. I want to send out these messages to people, I want to make a better world for us all to live in and to tolerate each other, to be nice, kind and do great things. Life is too short. People need to realize that the world is ours and we need to take care of it and take care of one another and have a great world.

We do live in a great world, but it is our actions that speak louder than words. Today I was very close to not blogging today and keeping today blank, but I didn’t have it in me to stop. I cannot stop. Not now. Blogging is part of my life and and writing on subjects like this is something very important to me. If people don’t speak out about something than who will? You know what I am trying to get at and say? I am talking to everybody in all age groups. I am not just pointing the finger in certain age groups. manner less people come of all ages. I really hope things change. I care too much for people.

The Doctor’s TV and Dr. Oz Show – I Love Those Shows

As a person who likes to learn and be educated by great TV shows such as The Doctor’s TV and Dr. Oz, they teach me so much and open my eyes on overall health and wellness for everyday life and they make health and medicine so interesting to watch and it is so informative. There are so many things they talk about whether it is from Fitness, Food consumption, diet, recipes, educating the public audience on symptoms and sicknesses, warning signs, prevention, also giving people a reality check of what happens to you if you do not take care of yourself and your health. You health is so important and the most important thing in your life. Without health and without taking care of yourself and your body physically and emotionally the outcome is not so great. We all have a choice to make great choices in life to prolong our longevity and to take charge and control of ourselves and our well-being is the greatest gift you can give yourself and you give yourself a gift of a happier and healthier life ahead where you can live to see so much in life and witness incredible and beautiful things.They also teach you about dangers of diet pills and energy drinks and how they are so harmful and people do not realize that all these useless chemicals and drugs that are going into our bodies are so harmful for us. They also have ordinary people come on the show and discuss they’re personal struggles for weight issues, personal medical issues, among everything else.

These two shows describe all of that and more. These shows would not be aired if Doctors like them did not care. I try to watch these shows as much as I am able to when I am home. If you have not yet watched these shows please tune in. You will be amazed on what they explain to you and in a very interesting and intricate way. Things that you would not even have thought of in terms of public health and bacteria that lurks around and what we can do to prevent disease and everything else, so we can have a better life and do everything in our power to take care of ourselves.

All the best to these shows. I love them.

Great Success, My Weight Loss is Progressing Well

There are a few things in my life which I am looking forward to this year and getting into shape is one of them. I am on my way to a new body, a new me, and a new outlook on the new life I will have when I want to get to the weight I want to be. Today, I was exercising on the treadmill and it was one of the most painful days ever in terms of the lower leg calve muscles which were burning so much and that burn pain made me go crazy on the treadmill, tears were rolling down my cheeks of how excruciating it was and it almost hit my heart. I was not going very fast either. I was just doing a brisk walk and boy did it really hurt, but that burn pain will go away soon and I will begin to walk on the treadmill without the pain and I will see the weight coming off even more.

I am going into my third week into my exercise and my family and friends that have seen me have noticed that my body has changed slightly but It is going well and drinking a lot of water I find is making my body more hydrated, my skin, my face, my hair feels more hydrated and vibrant. I am eating very small portions, and I am not eating late. I feel a burst of energy and I feel so great after the exercise I am doing. It hurts like H E double L, but I am not going to let that be a setback and I will not slack off. As I am on the treadmill I have my TV in front of me, I put music on in my Ipod, or play with my blackberry playbook and watch Youtube Video’s while I exercise.

After I lose about 30 pounds or so, I will be taking up Yoga. I decided to today. I am going to sign up for classes and improve my breathing when stretching and share my experiences with other people in the class with me. After my exercising improves and when I lose a lot more, I am going to join a gym as well for ladies and make friends with others who are trying to get fit like me and share our eating habits, what each person does to make lifestyle changes, the type of foods consumed. I am super excited for all of this. I can join it now, but I want to start out on my own and search the internet, and then work my way up to join the public.

I am patient and I am not going to overdo it to prevent myself from discouragement and I will not give up even when I am in the most terrible lower leg calve muscle pain ever. No pain No Gain.

I can do this!

I Have The Will Power & Motivation to Get Fit!

In My life this constant struggle of mine to get fit and lose my weight has really been a difficult process. I have always began to exercise for a period of 3 weeks to 3 months and then after that I stop. the first 2-3 months my legs would hurt from the excruciating burn pain behind my calves in my lower legs. It was the worst pain I had ever encountered. I mean I could walk no problem and I have no bone pains or pains in the joints or anything of that sort, but whats stopping me from continuing is the burn pain and I would cry because of it. I know that when that happens its working and my body is getting fit and getting rid of all that pain, but sometimes its so bad that I just quit. I know that is the wrong approach to deal with it as it makes it worse for next time, but this time I am so determined to do so to do it for myself and to do it for my own health and wellness. I have so many travels coming up this year and I want to be able to walk for hours, enjoy without getting tired, getting fit and just not worrying about a place to sit when I can enjoy my travels a lot more.

Since this past Tuesday, I started my exercise, and I started walking outside for an hour or 2 just walking and when the weather is bad I use my treadmill, so on the treadmill for the first 2 weeks I will do 20 minutes, then every week I will add 5 minutes more until I get up to 45 Minutes. I do not want to over tire myself in the beginning and just take my time doing so. The treadmill is such a great workout tool as it helps your whole body to get fit, not just one particular part of the body. I also have a bicycle that I can ride around my area and just go for half an hour. that is not until I get used to my walking and lose about 20-30 pounds in the beginning. My ideal weight that I want to be around is 135 to 140. I do not want to be too too slim either. Just right. After my body gets used to it, I will be signing up for Yoga as soon as my breathing and my workouts get easier and I get more flexible. I will try it with the treadmill then work my way up to all the other fancy stuff as now my body cannot take it.

This time I have the motivation and will power and I will not stop to get myself fit and be on my way to a new me, new wardrobe where I can fit in nice and beautiful dresses, where I can wear bikini’s, where I can be free and walk without getting tired fast, enjoy my new body and my new life, and feel great, more positive. When I look for work or when I get ahead in all this, the employer will see how well I take care of myself and that is another reason why. The employer will see how well you take care of yourself and that gives them a sense of security to think that when she can take care of her body and herself, that means she can take care of my company that I will hire her in. I thought of that of the reason why they might hire me or not hire me. I don’t know thats what my thoughts were on it. I will not give up and I will not be lazy and stop after 2-3 months. I will do my best everyday and not miss a day. I promise you my blog readers, my family, my friends, and everyone who has always advised me to get slim and get healthy. I know I am not doing this for everyone else, I am doing this for myself, but I will make this promise and I will not break it. As proof I will be taking photos of myself of the progress I have made and I will be posting in my blog on my journey to getting fit and I will be posting it on a bi-weekly basis or once a month. You will see the new me and you will see how incredible I will feel.

I will feel much better about myself and I will feel like I am in control which I will be. I know it will be a tough road ahead with watching what I eat and exercising and it is hard work and it takes a lot of patience, but I am up for the challenge and I am up for everything that is involved. Scouts honour to everyone. Here is to a road to success. :)
