Just Checking In To See How Everyone Is Doing

Hello everyone,

Hope all is going well. Today I am back to check and see how everyone is doing and I miss you all and I miss writing for you all in the last few days. I haven’t been blogging for the past few days. Been so incredibly busy with family and other tasks I must fulfill and I have been doing a lot of work to present to everyone different blog topics, working on several other things and attaining my goals in my life. I am super excited to share with you all once I am on the road to success with everything. In the next couple of weeks, I will be writing more on my blog, but I just need to get work done and get myself back into the swing of things and then I will be resuming back to my regular blogging everyday and I have many new topics coming up and so much more. Stay tuned!

All the best to everyone! May your dreams and wishes come true.

Love Always,

The Talents and Gifts We Have in Our Lives

Do you often sell yourself short? Do you often tell your family and friends that you can’t do something, when you really can? Do you often say you have no talents or gifts? Do you often think negative about yourself? Well, you should stop and think about who you are and what your strengths are and work on being more positive, to work on feeling good about yourself. Nobody wants a negative and pessimistic person who always down grades his or herself. We all have talents and gifts that are so special, so unique and really incredible. If you spend time with yourself, discover yourself and your talents, you will be surprised at what you find out.

Saying you don’t have talent and saying you’re not good enough for anyone or anything is a complete lie. You are lying to yourself. Do not waste your talents, do not let others tell you, you do not have talent, or you are not good enough. People should take a long look in the mirror before they judge other people. First people need to take a look at themselves before they jump into conclusions about other people. Do not let negative energy from negative people destroy your dreams, your talents and take away your gifts, that God has given you and that you were born with. Every single one of us has talent, every single one of us have great traits. Learn about them and use them in your daily life.

Never give up on your dreams, and never settle for less than what you deserve. Always be who you are and never change yourself for anyone. Selling yourself short is not good. Don’t be putting yourself down and making yourself depressed. It is not a healthy thing. because if you downgrade yourself all the time with your family and friends, it is not going to make you look good in their eyes. People these days strive for happiness always and try to look at things in a positive aspect. Do not be the only one in the group that destroys that happiness and be a center of an attention all the time. I know some people may have gone through sadness and people always telling that person that they cannot do anything, they are useless in this world. You shouldn’t let that get to you, no matter how many times people say it to you.

Stand tall, be firm, be confident in yourself, love yourself, respect yourself, and do what you can to better your life. Spend some me time to discover yourself, then get out there and show them who the boss is. So wipe that sadness and I can’t do it face, and be strong. You can do it!

Never Keep Anything Bottled Up Inside Of You. Always Bring It Out.

In My life I have learned not to keep anything bottled up inside and always spill the beans no matter what. I actually feel so much better everytime I do because if I keep anything bottled up inside of me, that makes life a lot more stressful and a big burden on your heart and it may suffocate you in the long run. Blogging takes a lot out of me as I express my feelings with writing and I talk to close people and loved ones in my life who understand my situations. If your going through rough times, or if you feel like venting out, do it. It is very good for you and it takes a big load off your mind and heart. You may not be aware of it, but you actually do make it better by speaking out about it.

People get sick, stressed, over-analyze themselves, sells ones self short, and all these terrible things can happen if all of us don’t speak out. People always tell me to never keep things inside of me unless they are secrets and things that people do not want me to tell anyone, that will always stay with me forever and I will never tell a soul, but besides that among everything else it should be said out, and they told me to never hesitate and be afraid of expressing myself. Its part of Human nature. All of us have problems, all of us have our worries so on and so forth, but its always good to say it out loud, its always good to confide in someone, if we don’t those problems will escalate and escalate and to the point like its a temperature gauge and when the mercury will explode. You do not want to get yourself to that level.

When you have a problem with someone, when you have issues you would like to discuss to someone, you tell it to their face and come up with solutions to solve that problem, or talk it over with someone, without other people interfering, and just have an open communication with whatever bothers you inside and whatever you need to express. Its super important to realize that. You may strengthen bonds with others by just doing that. You need to talk pleasantly and start the conversation by, “we need to talk about something that has been bothering me” or something along the lines of just being sincere and respectful as you confront the person, because nobody wants anyone to hound them and give them grief. Its always good to be respectful about it, rather than being hateful and rude. It sets yourself up for more problems when you want to solve it with others. You will see problems diminish and you will see that your bonds with people will be more strong if your straight forward, if you apply yourself and just let it all out. You don’t want a two faced person in front of you and a person who laughs and smiles but really they cannot stand the fact that there are problems that have not been discussed.

Some people do not realize the wrong they do, so we must make people aware of it and tell them like it is. No one likes a fake person. Its important to be real, to be nice about it and you will see how things will get better.

Life can sometimes throw obstacles to your face, so we need to talk to prevent those obstacles from contacting you. There are so many personalities, so many characters in life, different people, different mentalities, but always remember, “An Ugly Personality, Can Ruin a Pretty face” – UNKNOWN ——– So do yourself a favour, set yourself free and do not let anything get bottled up inside. You wouldn’t want to risk having a serious nervous breakdown now would you? Think about it!

I Have Finally Found My Calling – I Feel Like Celebrating & Enjoying The Moment

Today is the day I feel like celebrating and sharing my excitement with the world, There is so much I want to celebrate about and so much that I need to share with everyone. I am very happy and excited to announce that I have finally found my calling in terms of a career path and in terms of something that I thoroughly enjoy doing. It is something that I discovered since I started my world in social media, advertising, social networking, and blogging. Although My passions are about traveling, cooking and driving, and those are things I enjoy, but My calling is all about the social media, internet, social networking and blogging genres and fields. So many people have sent me personal e-mails from friends, family, fans, and everyone else who truly believes in me, I received an e-mail today which was so touching to me and it was one of the greatest e-mails ever when I opened up my inbox. This is the e-mail I received from one of my great friends from another city. I will keep her name anonymous, but this is what it said:

Dear Talin,

Since the beginning when I have subscribed to your blog, and have been following your social media path, you are such a beautiful person inside and out, you are not afraid to share with the world who you are, what you do, and your writings are wonderful, and I truly believe that this is your calling and your ultimate talent. Talin, we all have talent, we all come to this world with a strength, and God has chosen you to make a living and a career out of social media, marketing, and being a positive and influencing person in so many peoples lives. I see you have made quite a vast difference and impact in so many peoples lives, you have touched many hearts, you have that poise to inspire so many with your words. We need more people like you in this world, we need people like you in this generation of social media and communications as you are doing an excellent job in providing so much and I can see that you have dedicated a big portion of your life to blogging, and I think you found your niche. I love you so much my beautiful friend Talin. I wish you nothing but continued success in all that you do and I am one of your biggest fans. God bless you and I wish you nothing but the best in life. May all your wishes comes true. – Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah, The Talk, Marilyn Denis, do not know what they are missing. They need to discover you and soon. You deserve it and more.

love Always, Anonymous.

This was a sweet e-mail and I really cried up a storm of happy tears when I read this today. I have so much to give to society, and this realm of internet technology and more. I am not afraid of sharing, and it is a world I love, and its something that I see in other people when they give me reviews about me and what I love doing. I am doing this for myself, not because another person is telling me to do it. I believe in myself and I know that I will persevere and reach for the tops. I know it takes time and effort and finding the right connections, but I feel like my calling is now and I am not wasting another second of my life. I will keep proving myself, I will keep on working hard at what I love to do, and I will not let people give me negative remarks. I am going to celebrate my accomplishments and achievements so far and my friend who sent me that e-mail, I love you and that really touched my heart in so many ways. Thank you to everyone who believes in me, who entrusts me, who encourages, supports and puts me up and who appreciates me. I love you all very much. I wish everyone the best and may your dreams and wishes come true.

 

There Is Always A Light At The End Of The Tunnel – Quit Being Miserable

I have been thinking a lot about things I believe in and there are only a few certain things I do, and one of them is that when there are negative, and terrible things that happen in ones life, I always believe, that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. The only way to rid of being miserable, It is time to pick yourself up, and dust yourself off with any of these miserable things you think about and selling yourself short and doing things that can be debilitating to your health. I know that you can get through anything. You can be happy again, you can be someone who is full of life, you just have to get past those feelings. I know it may take a while to pick yourself up again due to some situations you went through, but never say never that happiness and being active again will never happen again. It will happen.

I see miserable people all the time when I do grocery shopping, when I am out running errands, when I am driving or when I go away on vacation. although I don’t know what is happening in their lives and what they are thinking about, and I know in life there are stresses with trying to make a living, trying to get out there in the world, and among other things that can be happening in a family, or relationships. Anything can be happening and I understand that completely. I know and have been through it all.

Always, know that your not alone and smile always and be yourself. I don’t know how some people choose to be miserable day in and day out. Although you might be hurting and things can happen, but it is our choice to move on with our lives and get over it, or we can choose to keep dwelling on the past and never moving forward in life. It is totally up to you on how you want to portray yourself, but always believe that you will get over problems and there will always be the light at the end of the tunnel. All you got to do is try and do your best to get past through them.

You can do it. So quit being miserable and smile will you? :)

My Book Is On It’s Way of Being Written

Hello, I would like to update you on my book, I am writing — A Blogger In Me, Expressing My Life, — I am on my way to the chapters of my book. I have already written the introduction of my book and thank you’s to all my fans, followers, family and everyone who has helped me along the way. I am so excited for everything going on in my life and I am just so happy with the progress. With this rate, I will be done my book in no time and I will be on my way to get it proofread and get the show on the road and be on my way to book stores and travel to sign autographs and everything. I cannot even be more happier than I am now and all the progress I have made with writing it. I already created my book cover too. The back cover will be interesting. That will be completed toward the end. It is a little summary of what my book entails and among everything else. I will be writing in it all next week and I will make deadlines for myself so I keep myself on track of everything I complete. Super awesome. :) Off to write more. Talk to you tomorrow.

It Is Official. I Am Going To Write A Book!

Hi Everyone! Today I am announcing that I am going to be writing my first official book! I am still undecided about the title, but I know exactly what My book will entail. It will cover everything from how Social Networking, How the Internet is so powerful to transmitting information in seconds, to how blogging changed the face of journal writing and amongst communication of personal stories and reflections in the world and most importantly targeting on important issues such as bullying, social acceptance and other important issues pertaining to society. I am going to brain storm ideas on what to put for my title. That is a hard thing to decide, but I am sure it will come naturally to mind. I have a lot of thinking to do, but it is all for great reasons. I will then get it to a publisher, then have them look over it, and then when it gets published, I will then spread it out to Amazon and other book sites. I am very serious in writing this book. I will be doing extensive research within the next 2 weeks and I will get as much ideas as possible, then I am on my way to writing and publishing my book.

I will also be targeting on etiquette and all sorts of things. It won’t necessarily be a novel book, but a chapter book with different sections and different subjects. It will also include photos of me and my life growing up until the present.

Then hopefully I will have autograph book signings at bookstores and libraries across North America and the world. This book is very important to me. I do not just want to keep blogging, I want to take my blogging further and get published. I am not a person to write fiction. I like writing about personal and true stories that has happened to me, and that I have witnessed. Fiction is okay too, but it doesn’t give it that personal feeling as opposed to writing a true story. I am so excited! Hopefully if all goes well, I will have my first book written by 2013! :) — I am so happy! Today I decided! It is going to happen!

How Blogging Has Taught Me So Much

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

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

with out words and with our blogs, and when people want to search for positivity, optimism and for happy things, its such a powerful tool. Blogging, Social Networking, Media and everything has become so powerful. Blogging especially. Its become so advanced, so many millions of people in the world blog and its such a great thing. I am so committed and so determined to change the world, to make the world a happier place. I want my words and my blogs to empower and to keep people going all the time. All the best to everyone, I wish nothing but the best.

 

About My Previous Blog – My Apologies If It Was Overwhelming For Some People

I would like to take today to apologize for my previous blog about what I wrote about the Illiterate Generation we live in Today. I just feel and from what I am seeing when I am out in public and everything, I see technology doing the thinking for people when it comes to basic math and everything and that is why I am so concerned and I had to touch base on this subject as why it is important to me. I mean there is a limit as to how much technology we use on a daily basis. I believe that I have right to express what I feel and what I have been witnessing. If I was not a concerned person about this subject, and if I didn’t genuinely care, I wouldn’t even have bothered writing such a blog, but I do care about this subject a lot as the new generation comes in and life is truly changing by day and sometimes life changes in a fraction of a second.

What my blogging passion is, is that I want to make a difference in this world and touch base on recent society, recent happenings, issues, and merely about certain subjects that need to be discussed and blogging is a universal language and we all learn from each other and express our feelings and the freedom of expression to subjects that need to be addressed such as my previous blog. My blogs are about positivity, optimism and touching base on important topics. I know that sometimes my writing needs improvement in terms of paragraphing and everything but this is the way I want to express my blogs, this is the way I learned it, and the way I feel. I never write things as an outline of what I want to talk about. It just comes naturally and I just start writing and writing. It just comes to my brain and boom its being written. Again I am sorry if I pushed a few buttons of people but I did warn people in my previous blog that its all meant in general and its all from my heart and soul and I am pouring my heart out into the blogs and the subjects I write.

I am just so passionate about blogging and I am so passionate about these subjects. My eyes were teary eyed just reading some of the comments that people left me that they were sort of attacking me in a way and it really got to me. I was in a crummy mood all day and tonight when I was gone out with friends, they had asked me what was wrong and what happened, I just didn’t want to say anything and I said oh don’t worry about it, just thinking about stuff. No big deal. I was just so stressed out today and you all bring valid and great points. I really never meant it in a way that I was pointing fingers at anybody, but I just had to speak the truth about technology and what it is doing. My friend is a teacher in elementary school and i have a few friends who are teachers and they told me about stories on kids that cannot go without a calculator or some sort of technology without even writing and holding a pencil or pen in their hand anymore and I keep hearing them and I said something must be done, I must write about this ASAP. People are so dependent on these gadgets and stuff, that people are going haywire to see the newest technology and want to be first in line to get it. That is all. that was my take on everything.

Again my apologies.

 

Just Another Reason Why I love WordPress Blog Website

***PLEASE NOTE: – My Previous blog under this one, I know I was harsh with the whole proper Hygiene, washing hands and everything and I apologize if I pushed a few buttons here and there, I never meant for it to be offensive to anyone, I am just expressing my concern on the spread of germs and bacteria and I am sure nobody wants to be sick or contract a virus from some people, but again I apologize if this made some people uncomfortable*****

I Am Glad I Made The Switch To WordPress Blogs

Lately, I have been so impressed with WordPress and how incredibly easy it is to create blogs, to keep things organized. I love this WordPress site. It also brought me to wonderful and lovely fellow bloggers who are so talented in writing and everything else in between. Anyway, After Searching on the internet for top blog sites, WordPress came into the search engine and I am so glad I made the switch. I was with Google Blogspot until end of October, when suddenly my Google Blogspot Disappeared and My Google Gmail account was disabled for no reason at all. I have written a couple of blogs about the terrible ordeal I had with them. If you like to read them, simply search Google on my blog and you will see related articles. I just love this site so much. Its so easy to get around to read others blogs, I can search for blogs in relative to me and the subjects I love, I see so many great ideas people come up with, I see cooking and baking recipes, what people do for christmas, new years, easter, thanksgiving, valentines day, so on and so forth.

This wordpress website is very special to me and I finally found my passion of writing and writing in my blog is important to me everyday.

I am glad to be part of the WordPress family.

I love all of 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.
