What Makes You A Stronger Person? How Do You Handle Life?

In my life, I have been through a huge list of unfortunate things that have happened to me where people would be bully me emotionally and mentally, putting me to the curb when not needed anymore, people who have used me for material gain, people who only come to me if they need something from me,  the feeling of being isolated, and being an option to people and not a priority in their lives. I remember all those times and still comes back to haunt me to this day, but things have changed so much for me and for the better. Because of all the anguish and pain I had to endure personally, emotionally and mentally, now I have become a stronger person, I have a whole new pizzazz on life, a whole new approach to trusting very few people, choosing my friends wisely, opening up my eyes more and making sure I make the right decisions about hanging out with the right people. Everything in my past that I went through, has shaped who I am today and its made me better in making judgements on who should be in my circle and who should not. I think and I know that I have handled my life wonderfully and I learned a lot from myself and have spent so much time with myself just thinking about life, about what the next step is to further myself in a social aspect of life.

What made me a stronger person is that I look things into a positive perspective, I look at things as a cup that is half full, and no matter what life throws at me, I am always positive in the end. I know it is easier said than done, but being positive is easy, all you have to do is be strong, be who you are, always be yourself, make sure that you surround yourself with positive and great energy throughout your day everyday. When I was heavily bullied as I was in school back in the day, I put into thought that this is just temporary and things will get better and it did get better for me. I am so strong now that nothing or no one can break me. I have learned to stand on my own two feet, I’ve learned and I am still learning to this day. Life is a never-ending learning journey. Sometimes things come in our way, but in the end the ball is in your court, but make sure you hit a slam dunk and be strong.

Everything happens for a reason, and people come into your life as a blessing or a lesson and that will determine your strength to move on to bigger and better people and things in life. What shaped me to be stronger is that I cut out negativity, and I always instill in others that they too can do the same, all they have to do is try their best, and do it. I know sometimes it easier said than done as I said, but it will workout in the long run. I know that life is not perfect as we want it to be, and sometimes we get lucky and sometimes we do not get so lucky with how our lives are and have turned out to be and what we went through in the past, but take a look around, be blessed with what you have and who you have become. What have you learned from your past? Have you been a victim of bullying? What did you do to make yourself stronger?

What steps did you take to conquer and defy all the odds? Did you seek for help from others? did you dust yourself off and pick yourself up on your own? Did you tell someone about how you were feeling or are feeling? Always know you are worth it, you are important, you are a unique, special, confident, strong and beautiful person. As long as you know that for yourself, you do not need others to tell you all that. When you know yourself that you are enough and that you are all those great things, that is the greatest thing you can do for yourself. You have those gifts that are so precious. You are a precious human being who came to this earth for a reason, each one of us serves a purpose in our world and we can all make a positive influence, difference and change the world into a stronger and happier place only if we try to do our best no matter what life throws at us. Kindness, Respect and doing great things is the way to go.

Now tell me what has made you stronger? Life is a beautiful gift from God, and its such a lovely thing.  always be strong. Remember what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, and somehow struggles become success, and success becomes everything you want your life to be emotionally and mentally. Be positive, be strong, be you, and everything in life will come to place. Just believe in yourself, believe that you can conquer anything and throw negativity away and do not think about what might have been, or what could have happened differently. Keep going. Do not stop. All the best to you, keep smiling, be happy!

Natural Beauty is The Way

As I go through life seeing many people wear oodles of make-up on their face, I always say to myself, why they put so much? why they have to cover their face up with all these cosmetics? I believe and know that all women and girls have a natural beauty and they are simply covering up what they really look like. I am not saying do not wear make-up, you are free to make your own decisions as to how much cosmetics you put on your face, but in moderation. The trick to wearing make-up, you have to make it look like you are not wearing any at all.

I believe inner beauty is far more beautiful than our exterior. Make-up should not make a woman/girl believe that they are far more beautiful with that stuff on their faces. Many cosmetic companies starve for women/girls who constantly head to the stores to purchase their merchandise. Beauty comes from within. We are just carrying our exterior, but I am telling all women/girls of the world right now, you are beautiful, you don’t have to try to impress the guy next door, or when you go to a party or somewhere to wear make up to the extent that it does not make you look good at all. It makes it worse to be honest.

I have been to many parties and I notice women and girls look in the mirror in the restroom to maintain themselves, adding more and more make-up. Again, it is totally up to you on what you do to your face, but I would understand if you’re a bride, bridesmaid, or you’re in a modeling agency, or whatever, but then again, make-up should be worn within limits.

As my personal side of the story, I only wear make-up when it is absolutely necessary, I occasionally wear make up to a party or a gathering with my girlfriends, but I rarely wear it on a daily basis. It makes my face feel so heavy and it makes me feel like there are things on my face constantly. The mess of mascara, the mess of the bronzer and foundation powders and everything, just clog up the pores and clog up the face and your face won’t breathe.

Although it is important to maintain your exterior, with having your hair groomed, showered up, clean, nice smelling, and have great hygiene with brushing your teeth, flossing and everything which is very important, but when it comes to Make-up, it really isn’t a necessity, it is something that hides your beauty, being a natural beauty is far more attractive, than having all this gunk on your face, and putting too much make-up on no matter what type of product or name it is, can speed up the aging process.

I know you readers are questioning and thinking that this woman writing this has got to be crazy, that she herself is a woman and women are so revolved around cosmetics, fashion so on and so forth. Personally, I myself enjoy wearing custom jewellery, and matching up my outfits and going out with just lip gloss on my lips or a lip colour that suits my face and colour of my skin, rather than wearing way to much on my face. I already wear corrective lenses, and i occasionally wear contact lenses.

In conclusion, you are beautiful, you are a person of our world, you have been put on this earth, no matter how your face looks, your facial attributes, sizes, shapes, were all different, were all ONE BODY, Were all in the same human race, were all on this earth for a reason. Nature will take its course. BE NATURAL, BE WHO YOU ARE, GOD LOVES YOU Just the way you are, SO LOVE YOURSELF THE WAY YOU ARE. Save that 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 dollar bill that you are going to spend on Make-up and Utilize it for something more worthwhile. So get up, stand up, Smile and look at yourself in the mirror and say these 5 WORDS Every morning you wake up — “I AM A NATURAL BEAUTY” and start your day. Try it, and you will see the difference.

Being Yourself Is The Best Thing You Can Wear

Today, I was having a conversation with myself and usually I have conversations with myself from time to time when I am busy with cleaning the house, cooking, doing laundry, and just taking time for myself and discovering new things, new thoughts about myself, and I came to a discovery about something very clever and something to think about. I have always told people to always be themselves, and there is nothing better than being who you are and not being somebody you aren’t.There is nothing in the world more rewarding than that. People sometimes get distracted, discouraged to being who they are and things happen in life to them that make them feel that being ones self is something they don’t want to do because of something they have been through, a traumatic experience, but let me assure you, being yourself is something that you should only possess. If you possess anybody else personality, then where do you stand in the world? You were born to stand out and lead. If you keep on being like everybody else, then there is nothing new to see.

Don’t try so hard to fit in, don’t try so hard to impress others. Look in the mirror everyday and smile. Say I am me, I am who I am, and I came to this world like this and I am proud and happy of me. Don’t let others dictate your life and who you are, don’t let others tell you what to be, don’t let others make your life decisions for you, don’t let others pressure you into doing things you do not want to do. We all have a voice, we all have a choice, but being yourself should always be your first and only choice. Have people in your life that will appreciate you for you, and have people in your life that will support you and your decisions, who will back you up, who will guide you through, but at the same time not keep telling you what to do. You can only do so much for people, but in the end everyone has their own lives to live. Some people may take longer than others to adapt into society, some people may take longer or shorter time to do things, and to get things going in life, but in the end you are you, and everyone has their own journey of life. You have to be patient with people. Sometimes you may not know the path they are walking and what they have been through to get to those paths and walking in their shoes.

It is easy to talk and put so many things in other people’s minds and tell them and advise them, but sometimes you have to let someone discover things on their own. You can only tell someone so much, but then after the ball is in their court and its up to them how they want to control that field, but always be yourself in the process, and always dress for success. When you are yourself, when you are honest, and don’t lie to yourself or anybody else, that is the best way to dress for life. Dressing to be yourself is the best outfit you can ever wear more than anything else in the world.

Today, I came with a new twist on this topic and I was also thinking about a movie I watched with Hillary Duff, Regina King, and a few other actors in the movie, but I forgot what the movie was called. Anyway, when at the end of the movie Hillary Duff asked her friend, what are you wearing today? Her friend said, Myself. That was something that has been on my mind today and I decided to write about it today. It is true what was said is to always wear who you are 24/7 365 days a year and never letting negative influence deter you away from who you are. So I had a conversation similar to the movie I watched last night. It goes a little something like this:

Person #1: What are you dressed as today?
Person #2: Myself
Person #1: Well, that is the best thing you can wear.
Person #2: There is nothing better than being myself
Person #1: I totally agree. I really like that look on you.
Person #2: Thanks. I will wear it everyday 24/7 365 days a year.

I really believe in that and so should everybody else. Be yourself, and you will see the difference the world makes. Smile, be happy with you and don’t try to be someone you aren’t. All the best to you.

My Dreams & Aspiration To Become A Host On A TV Talk Show

In the past couple of weeks, when I fall asleep at nights, I have recurring dreams about being a talk show host and having my own show on television. It has been happening quite frequently. I spoke about my dreams that I have had to a few friends of mine who attend the bible study I attend to and to my group of friends and some of my family members, and they said to me, Talin you would make a great talk show host and you would definitely be a great asset to television and to the society of television viewers. I kept having these dreams where I flew to LA (Los Angeles) and New York City and I got introduced to many directors, editors, and people who work for show biz such as Jimmy Fallon, Anderson Cooper, The Talk, Rachael Ray, Jay Leno. I also Saw Ellen DeGeneres in My dream and she said to me, I am going to help you get your own talk show going, and she said that she will show me the ropes to it all. After thanking her so many times, she got me on her talk show, and she introduced me to her audience and she said, we have an aspiring and beautiful writer and one who wants to make a difference in this world. I got very excited, and in my dream I found my own place in LA in Hollywood Hills or Beverly hills and I automatically begun my quest to my talk show.

It was called the Talin Show and the show is about introducing ordinary, simple people who’s blogs inspire the world and introducing to the world many different people of all races, cultures, beliefs on issues in our world, social issues, important issues that need addressing, not just the typical relationship advice, celebrity gossip, but real issues that are targeting the world with bullies, and among so many things and I had specials of celebrities also coming on the show. It was quite interesting to say the least. When The dreams kept happening, and all types of them. One night I had this dream that I was nominated and won daytime Emmy, and Peoples Choice Award, and 2 nights after I had this dream, I was on the red carpet with many TV Entertainment Reporter personalities interviewing me, and I would see my billboard on so many highways/freeways across LA and other states and countries.

After all that happened, I had dreams about making special appearances on shows such as The Big Bang Theory, CSI Shows, Criminal Minds, Hawaii 5-0, How I met Your Mother, Mike and Molly, Two and A half men. After all that happened, Soap Operas such as Days of Our Lives and Young and The Restless called me to do walk on roles and small role plays in the shows temporary, then I went back to to my show. I keep on having these recurring dreams and I think this is my calling, this is my queue that it will happen someday for me. I truly believe in it. In the past a lot of dreams I have had, come true. Not right away but, they come true within a short time frame. This time I don’t know, its become crazy. Having the same type of genre dreams. I did not want to wake up in any of them. It kept going on all night. I think I found my calling and I am going to go for my dreams and aspirations.

Ladies and Gentlemen who are reading this, it is not about becoming famous, it is not about gaining status or anything of that sort but its about me getting into the world, making a difference in peoples lives and becoming a talk show host on television to not only touch the community around me, but to a lot of people around the world, I want to be able to talk to many people, I want to be someone who helps people find comfort, happiness, positivity, and find a place in this earth without being bullied and made fun of. I want to get people on my show who have been bullied, I want to get people who have trouble with socializing, I want to help people who need it. Some have asked me why I need to be on television, Why I need to get on the screens of millions of people, it is because of what I have stated above, it is because I want to do it, its because my dreams at night and my heart tell me so. I want to do it because I am passionate about it, and these dreams are happening for a reason and everything happens for a reason. I do not know how or what or why they happen, but I believe that God has a path and plan for each and everyone of us, and this is my path.

It will take a lot of hard work, determination, and finding the right people, but I am up for the challenge, and I will persevere and do my best to attain my goals, and dreams and get going to a future that I am looking forward to. Thank you to my loved ones, supporters, fans who believe in me. Without you all, I wouldn’t be able to go forward. I wouldn’t be where I am today and those dreams I have while I sleep, I plan on making them a reality and not just write and talk about it.

Thank you!

When You Have Faith, Everything Else Falls Into Place

In the past blogs I have wrote about my trouble sleeping and about how some things are keeping me up at nights, I finally had the courage to write about my sleeping problems and after writing about them and sharing out my heart and what is on my mind with the world, I finally feel so much better having done that. I have that faith and courage to share my thoughts and words with the world and finally things are coming to place with that. I am a person now who is not afraid to express myself and share my feelings with people. I am a very open minded person and I love to share my life, because blogging is all about that right?

Well, I have all the faith in the world and finally things have fallen into place where I want it to be. With faith, perseverance and courage you can get through anything and everything your hearts desire. these naps I take and the sleep I have been getting lately has taken out all that negative energy out of me and I am finally feeling refreshed and feeling so much better. I feel so alert and rested. I still need to get more sleep, but slowly but surely I will be on my road to recovery from sleep deprivation and I will be on my way to my goals and dreams. Looking for my significant other and finding Mr. Right and be in a relationship will also get me on the road to recovery too as I have never had a relationship and I don’t know how it feels like to be in one. I want to get married one day, have my own family and enjoy life more. I believe and have faith that those days are coming soon and I just feel it.

When you have faith, everything else will come in place. You just have to see past the negativity that takes over your life and start going through the path of positivity and happy trails. faith, happiness and positivity come hand in hand. You can make a difference in your life and those around you. Scrap negativity today, to prepare and look forward to bigger and better things in life for the present and the future for all the tomorrow’s.

 

 

Finally Sleeping Better At Nights and I feel Fresh When I wake Up In The Morning

Recently, I wrote about how difficult it was for me to fall asleep and to stay asleep at nights without tossing, turning, waking up and walking all over my house and going back to my bed. Well in the past few nights I feel like my sleep is improving finally and that I am finally getting the good rest I need. I feel refreshed in the morning and wake up earlier than I usually do around 8am in the morning. I am now waking up fresh at 7am or so. It feels incredible. I guess talking about it with my readers and blogging about it actually helped the situation. I guess I needed people to talk to about it and to make my case known to people and hearing different ideas, suggestions really helped a lot. I thank you all for those wonderful advice and what to do about my sleep. I think it was a break through for me to open up about it and now I am not thinking much when I go to sleep, I wipe out everything from my mind before I sleep and that helps me quite significantly. So I owe it to my family, friends, readers of my blog.

Sleep was such a hard battle for me and I would dread it every time night came and I would just go crazy, but I know that it cured me in a way because when I talked about it and poured my heart out on the internet and just talking to you all, really did make a big difference. I guess that is what I needed. People to talk to and people to confide into my problems with my sleep and among what is bothering me. My stress level has gone down quite a lot and I feel so energetic. During the day toward the afternoon, I take short 20 to 30 minute power naps and then I am awake again. It feels great to be catching up on months and almost 2 years of proper sleep I haven’t had. I feel healthier, I feel better. Words can’t even describe it. Anyway, thank you so much for reading and whoever else is having sleep trouble, all the best and I wish you well. I know it is not easy to go through, but I am here if you need to talk about it.

 

 

 

What A Great Night – I Love Summer Nights

Last night with a few great friends I have known for years, we went and had a nice relaxing time by the waterfront of Lake Ontario, and we decided to have a little bonfire and just chill out and look at the clear sky with so many stars. It was so beautiful. We always do this once a month during the summer time. We try to spend as much we can outdoors. After about 2-3 hours that past, there were these awesome people who came by and said hello and asked if they can join us around our fire pit. We said yes sure, so we met new people and they seemed like pretty nice people. Especially the one who initiated and asked. So they were kind enough to bring us some more firewood as we had run out of it, which we said thank you and they stood with us for a good a hour or so, and then they said thanks for sharing the fire with us, then they left and we were still there. We left around 1:30 almost 2am. It was a lovely night I won’t forget. A night full of laughter, stories and many more. I wish it can stay summer forever here, but unfortunately not. I love not having to worry about jackets and long clothes. lol

I love summer nights. Its so relaxing and not cold at all, and just taking in the summer air is so fabulous. We were a bit out of the city and the air was clean and so peaceful without lights and all that action. There were not too many people at the park and at the waterfront and it was great without all that commotion from other places. It is nice to get away from the grind of life and just go relax without nothing to think about. I remember when we first went together as a group, it was something that we said, hey lets do this again, and we chose a place where it is nice and peaceful, but everyone once in a while there would be the go train passing by or the VIA Rail, and other trains, but it is cool to see them. They go ever so fast. It is nice to see that too. So it was almost time to leave, so we put out the fire with Lake Ontario water, and then we were packing up to go, and while walking to our cars, we felt ever so relaxed and we hung out some more by the cars. We can never get enough of each other and we always try to stick together and be together no matter what we do. Every Friday nights we hang out, go out to different restaurants, and just have an awesome time together. I have such a nice group of friends and it has been years that we have been doing this. Maybe over 5 years that is for sure.

Gotta love the outdoors and how a bonfire brings people together. Even total strangers who came by and hung out with us. That was something really neat and I won’t ever forget that. They were nice young people. They were in their late teens to early 20′s. They seemed like calm and lovely people, so we invited them over. They really appreciated that and they thanked us and they shared with us too. All the best to them. It is nice to be inviting and accepting of others. It is a beautiful thing. Being kind and being inviting is great, because I believe in Karma and I believe that what goes around comes around, so be kind to others and good things will come to you like the extra fire wood they gave us which lasted us for the remainder of the night. Without that, we wouldn’t have had anymore. So the moral of the story is, be kind and share. Even to total strangers, and they will appreciate it. I experienced a new kind of humanity last night. That was something I will never forget.

Kindness Gestures Are Still Out There. It Happened to Me Tonight

Earlier this evening, I decided I do some grocery shopping before the store closes an hour later, so I parked my car and was walking toward the carts in front of the store, and I forgot to grab a quarter with me because the only way to get a cart is by paying a quarter on it, so I always keep a few of them in my car, but this time I forgot to bring it with me, so I went into my wallet and I didn’t have any, so I kept struggling, as I was about to head back to my car to get it, This lady saw me struggling to look for it, so she said here is a quarter for you, I said I can go to my car and get one, but she said no, don’t worry about it, take this. I felt extremely embarrassed that I didn’t have an extra quarter in my wallet, but the lady re-assured me that its alright have this one. I couldn’t stop thanking her for doing that for me. That simple kind gesture meant the world to me, and it made my day. There are still really nice, kind, and very lovely people out there. It is rare these days.

It was like God watched over me and brought me that person to my rescue at the time of need. It was incredible. This had never happened to me before. I usually never forget to bring a quarter with me, but tonight it was a different thing going on in my mind. I probably had something on my mind and I forgot to take it out with me. I just couldn’t believe it. What a beautiful evening I had. I mean I will never forget that and I will never forget her face. This was by far one of the most kindest things a stranger I don’t even know do this for me. Not everyone would do this and not everyone would just give like that, but wow this lady was something else and then when we went into the grocery store we were talking and I said thank you again so much, She said do not worry about it. She said to me you seem like a great person and I know by just looking at a person and when I saw you struggle like that, I just had to.

These little things make it a big deal for someone, and it sure made a big deal for me and a huge difference. I can now look at humanity in a different way. So now whenever I go to my local grocery store, I am never going to forget that moment and that spot. God bless that lady and I wish her the best with her life. She truly deserves all the blessings and all the great things in life. Very hard to find like a rare gem, and she was one of them. Beautiful Lady. The moral of this story is to try and be kind as much as possible in your life and do kind gestures. It makes a big difference in ones life. It did to me today. Thank you lady, you will never be forgotten and hopefully I see you again.

 

 

Never Let Anybody Walk All Over You. Stand Up For Yourself

There is something important today I must discuss with everyone today. It is an important subject that I need to address to everyone, and that is about never letting anybody walk all over you and standing up for yourself when something goes wrong, or when someone says something mean and out of turn. I have learned from personal experience that not everyone will think like you, not everyone will have your strengths, not everyone will have the same opinion as you and outlooks on things and I know that everybody in this world is different and we all have our differences and opinions and among everything else. That is how the world goes around I guess, but what I cannot stand is rudeness, people insulting others, people making fun of others because they are difference, people who always rain on others parade, people who always bring the other person down when they are up, when people terrorize another person because of what he/she likes. I do not think it is fair at all for people to always be walked all over from these people.

Now, I have learned so many times and these last couple of years, as I have grown up, and I have become more independent, more aware of what society can be, and how mean and terrible some people can be toward other people and its not a nice thing. Do not ever let people walk all over you. Sometimes when your too nice of a person and always kind, those people often times do not know if a person is taking advantage of them, they won’t know that they are always being used and being walked all over, so a kind and person with a soft heart will always be there and will always give and not take most of the time. It is a terrible thing to feel when someones good heart can become so dangerous to society. I have learned to stand up for myself, I have learned to say no, and I have figured out who my true friends are from that and some of them left and some of them stood behind. Saying no isn’t a bad thing.

I remember a lot of people were making fun of me because I am different, a lot of people think I am strange for the things I like, like the Highway 401 East toward Montreal, I love driving, I love big transport trucks, I love the road to Montreal, I mean, everyone is entitled to like what they want to like and everyone is free, but what I cannot stand is when others making fun of others for the things they like. It is something that I do not tolerate anymore. The Other day, I stood up for myself, and it felt so awesome. I deleted this girl off of facebook, I deleted couple of other people who make fun of me and I turned the page. Its all about standing up for myself now. I will not let others take advantage of me, I will not let others make and poke fun at me. I will wash them up and down and I will do everything I can to stick up for me, because not always will there be people backing me up, so I need to do this on my own but it is awesome when others step up to the plate and do it for you. That is also incredible and I appreciate it so much. I have had that happen to me numerous amount of times and I love my support system, and I love my family and friends and supporters for always being there for me through thick and thin..If nobody will appreciate and like you for who you are, and if people are going to always poke fun at you, then its time to let them go. You do not need people in your life, that will put you down all the time and keep you down. Its not a very nice thing.

Do not let others discriminate you, do not let others put you down for anything. Sticking up for your rights and yourself is very important or else society will unfortunately take advantage of everything you have got. Always open up your eyes, always try to analyze people, and do not trust so easily. Not everyone will be your friend, and not everyone will understand your point of views and what you stand for in your life. Just be who you are, stand up for yourself, and never ever ever ever ever ever ever let anybody walk all over you. Just live life, smile, and do what is right for you.

The Children of Armenia in The Town Of Kapan – Need Your Help

Hello, I would like to talk to you about something that has hit close to my heart and close to home. A Friend of Mine who has moved to Armenia about 8 Months ago in the town of Kapan about 5 Hours away from The Capital City of Armenia, Yerevan and she is helping children in need of a better life and future ahead. It pains me to see Children suffering and not being able to have the necessities needed in life to survive. It just hits me close to home thinking about it. This little boy named Alex is one of the people that needs help to walk. His story is located on this link http://goquests.com/go/m/fundraiser/view/Help-Alex-Poghossyan-Walk . These Children need to go to Yerevan to seek treatment as transportation to Yerevan is $100 CAD Canadian and it is very costly to Parents who live in that region that only make about $250-300 a month and can barely make ends meet and as well as accommodation, food expenses, medical, hospital stays, all add up. This boy unlike others, he is in terrible condition and was sent to Yerevan by my Friend who too him to get IV Treatment in intensive care. Now if this is left untreated, he may become amputated. The Government needs to take care of their citizens more properly and give people the treatment they deserve, but unfortunately money conquers everything else and without money healthcare of an individual will not go so far and terrible things can happen and unfortunately some do not make it for another day in life.

My Friend Momo Khustup, does miracle work for these children to get the best care they need, and without generous donations, these children will have an uncertain future ahead and will be left with dealing with these debilitating diseases and disabilities. The time is now to help out. Any amount of donation will be helpful in any which way. Your donations will make a great impact on a child’s life and substantially help them out a great deal by doing so. It doesn’t matter if it is 10, 20, 30, even 100 dollars, any amount will make a world of a difference and you can help put a smile on a child’s face that is in need. Our children are our future and we need children to get healthy and be well to be kids, to have a great childhood, to be able to have a normal life. So donate today, give a child another chance at life and make a difference. You can make a difference. Thank you….

How I Make Time For Blogging Everyday…

Recently, I decided to make blogging a part of my daily routine writing about issues in our lives, from food recipes, travel stories, stories in general, poetry, and almost all parts of what writing is. I know it is not an easy thing to blog everyday. I know some people cannot make time to blog everyday as employment, life, family, children, life outside the home, cooking, cleaning, traveling take over and that is no problem at all. It is very important to balance life with everything and that is perfectly fine.

Now, I am here to tell you, how I balance blogging into my daily routine everyday. In the morning hours before having breakfast or in the evening after finishing with dinner and washing dishes, I make sometime for myself to sort out my thoughts and I start to write. Writing in my blog everyday is very important to me and I make it a daily chore. I am a huge neat, clean and organization freak, that I tend to do cleaning a lot, having laundry done, so on and so forth, that I made blogging into my daily habit. I spend quite a bit of time with my blog as I do with my chores, family, family outings, traveling, and more. I am determined to change the world one person at a time into happier, positive, optimistic people who can make a difference with themselves and give off that same positive energy to other people around them and in each and everyones communities across the world, so that we can see more smiles, more love in our communities and where people can tolerate each other, how people can get along with one another.

Life is so short to dwell on things, and there is no need for hating, making fun of people, bullying, so on and so forth. I am here to hopefully change the world because I am tired of seeing negativity when I get out in the public. I can sense and feel it right away. I feel that the more I blog everyday, and the more my message gets out to people across the many miles of our world, the better it will be for all of us. I think its an incredible form of technology to be able to blog, to be able to put our feelings, life and words out there for people to hopefully catch on and read.

In conclusion, blogging is a big priority for me, and knowing that people smile, and have this awesome burst of energy and seeing people happy is all the more of why I love to blog and I wish everybody nothing but the best in life. Blessings to all.
