What the Kobe Bryant Helicopter Crash Taught Me About Life

Before I begin, I just want to say I love you all very much. Life is just too short and you do not know what happens from one minute to the next. Life is very unpredictable and can change instantly. Tomorrow is never promised. Always need to live life being kind, humble, appreciate and cherish each other. Life can change in seconds. So once again, I just want to say I love you all very much!

In life, we all go through so many situations, problems, and issues in our lives that are irrelevant at this point. You know why? Life is just too short to hold onto grudges, hate, and jealousy. We weren’t put on this earth to destroy and hurt each other. We are all born innocent until a negative and bad influence ruins our personalities, and what we do to others. We must never get that far. We must not let people’s bad examples take our innocence away. In the end, the choices you made do affect others too. Do not succumb to those matters and stay away from the wrong crowd.

I just want to say to enjoy your life, be with great people, kindness and spread good cheer around is very important. Time is precious, people are precious, the world is precious. We need to understand that what happened with the Kobe Bryant crash puts things into perspective, that in an instant fate and life can take us away in a second and families can be shattered and a huge loss in people’s lives forever. Never take anyone and life for granted.

These people on the Helicopter crash of January 26, 2020 — pilot Ara Zobayan, 50; Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, 56, wife, Keri, 46, and their 13-year-old daughter, Alyssa, 13; Mamba Sports Academy basketball coach Christina Mauser, 38, a married mother of three; and Sarah Chester, 45, and her daughter, Payton, 13 – Kobe Bryant 41, Gianna Bryant 13″.

When you look at all those ages, the families that have to deal with daily and constant pain, grief, mourning, tears, broken hearts, shattered dreams because their loved ones died so untimely, and so shockingly. It really is something to think about. Forgive people if they have done you wrong, solve your problems, get together and talk about things and how to resolve it. People plan their families, future together, the hopes and dreams for their lives and life is so unfair to just part physically with our loved ones.

Some people focus too much on material and monetary gain. Once you cross the realm to heaven, you will not take anything with you, except your soul. It is important to be humble and not boast, flaunt and show off to people.

People find the easy way out not to talk to people anymore, because of mistakes made. People aren’t perfect, they have flaws, they have weaknesses. People find the easy way out to divorce, broken friendships, relationships by calling it quits. People give up way too easily nowadays instead of talking about it and fixing it. It is very important to communicate our issues and to start fresh no matter how many times you fall. You pull yourself back up, refresh yourself.

It is so difficult to process the loss of life especially when life goes on. Always know that those people who we lose physically, they are with us in spirit, they are looking down from heaven to see us, to watch over us. I dealt with a huge loss about 5 months ago, and to tell you the truth, I am still grieving like the first day I heard about it and it hurts a lot and I cry a lot, but every cry, every grief makes me stronger and I believe that the person is always with me.

It is crazy about how when people die, everyone starts to talk about them more, are remembered, but when people are alive, they seem to be taken advantage of and not worried. I hope that what happened is a lesson to us all.

We dropped everything once we heard about the Kobe Bryant fateful helicopter crash and we all hurt because of the news. It is evident that we can all come together as one to hold onto each other, and to mourn together. Let’s use the same energy to help each other up.

Life truly is unpredictable. Do not delay, Hug your loved ones today and always, say I love you every chance you get, say thank you, appreciate each other, spend as much time as possible with people. When you are with your family and friends, making new friends, put those screens, phones, computers down.

Focus on real communication, make memories, talk about things, laugh and hold onto each other. You don’t realize that time is ticking and screen time is taking away all those precious moments that you can be making with your loved ones. It is very important. – You will regret it. Trust in me. You just never know. Tomorrow is never promised.

In loving memory of the helicopter crash that killed 9 people in Los Angeles, California. We will never forget.

The Celebrity Feel – Toronto Pearson International Airport

In life, we are given this incredible privilege to travel and see the world and how aviation, technology, engineering, and aircraft make this world a smaller place by getting to places quickly. Toronto Pearson Airport is an airport that is so near and dear to me with all the great memories created whether it is traveling, dropping off, picking up and just spotting aircraft nearby. Very special to me.

Every single time that I land in Toronto Pearson Airport, as soon as we taxi, gate, get our belongings from the aircraft and walk our way out to the terminal, to get through customs, to claim our baggage, the adrenaline, and that feel of seeing flight attendants, captains/pilots and amongst CATSA and CBSA officers, plus other passengers sharing the same atmosphere. It makes me feel so incredibly appreciative and thankful to the travel industry and our beautiful Airport of Toronto Pearson.

As we are about to claim our baggage, that moment comes along where we begin to exit to reunite with loved ones, meet colleagues, or go get a shuttle, bus, taxi, uber, lyft or other transportation to take us home or where ever else.

As you are walking out, you see all the eyes on you as you are carrying your baggage, that automatic celebrity feels where you glance at everyone and people are smiling and making eye contact with you. It feels like you are a celebrity coming home. So at this point, I walk a bit slower and I do the same looking at everyone else and I smile too. I just absolutely love that moment. I appreciate every moment and cherish it and this is one of them.

That part whether it’s at Terminal 1 or 3, is one of my favorite parts of the airport and of course when I am at the gate waiting for my flight and watching beautiful aircraft go by. Toronto Pearson Airport is a sentimental place for me and I always feel like a celebrity there. I am thankful to all the workers and volunteers at the airport. Appreciation, kindness, and patience go a long way when traveling and expressing that is very important. It makes life and people’s day go by a lot better.

Toronto Pearson Airport, Thank you – I love you. Safe, well wishes and happy travels to all of us.

YYZ ALL THE WAY!

The Hard Truth & Sad Reality of Social Media – Devices That Consume Us

The sad reality of how smartphones and other devices are consuming us and face-to-face human interaction and communicating is diminishing and at a rapid rate. We need to set limits within ourselves to go offline, explore our world around us, connect with humans at a personal level, show emotions, and develop our personalities.

This is the fact and the hard truth and it has become a huge problem in our society, when we prioritize what’s on our screens, and play with apps. We no longer need to do any critical thinking anymore, we no longer need to learn the basics, even mathematics, spelling, counting. Everything is done for us and there are apps for everything.

We are putting smartphones and devices first in our lives, and physical communication with people second. Even paying attention to our families and friends have diminished. I see it happen far too often where people get together at restaurants and coffee shops and they sit around not talking, but they are on their phones and showing no emotion, and no personality. It is so sad. Why have we come this far? Why do we have to do this 24/7?

Here I am talking about this on a social media blogging platform.

We have become so dependent on these devices that we even ask Siri and Alexa to do basic chores around the house like taking down decorations for example, but we know that it won’t happen that way, but maybe one day. I wouldn’t put anything past it. Screen time is consuming our time at a very alarming rate.

So much of our lives are going by and we don’t realize it. Spend time with your loved ones and create memories without these screens. want to take pictures? Buy a digital camera and take pictures and then look at them later. Smartphones have made it easy to take pictures and to share instantly too

Our brains are no longer functioning without these devices that we stare at for hours and hours a day. People cannot even put these devices down when driving, walking, and even shopping. This has become a big disease and it is running people’s lives.

It’s very serious. I am very concerned about the coming generations.

These images are so powerful and the description exactly and spot on of what these devices are doing to us. Hopefully, it will make people think about their actions and take these matters seriously. What can we do to combat this? How can we take a break from this all?

I am definitely making changes in my life. Life is too short. 

Be Kind to One Another – The Ellen Show — Ellen DeGeneres

Hello Everyone,

As you may or may not know, Ellen DeGeneres is someone who advocates kindness and she always says be kind to one another after her shows. I have been writing for so many years now and a lot about emotions, spreading kindness, positivity and hopefully making a difference in people’s lives. I have been through bullying and people not treating me right because I am different.

Now as some years have gone by and many attempts to get to meet Ellen DeGeneres, get onto her show to spread out more kindness and everything she stands for hasn’t worked in my favour and to get my big break in the world to advocate change in social issues, and to mainly focus on putting smiles on people’s faces and being an inspiration. It has been so hard to reach out to her because basically hundreds of thousands of people do on a daily basis and its so difficult.

I want to be able to travel to Los Angeles again and this time visit Ellen at the studios and get to help the world. I want to empower and put happiness in people’s lives. I want to be able to meet my favourite stars, get into the world of entertainment writing too, work with the stars, head to award shows and at the same time advocate kindness and positivity into people’s lives as well.

I feel like I have been hitting dead ends and not getting anywhere. I will greatly appreciate, be so grateful if someone can help me. I know in my heart that I can make magic happen and I know in my soul I can put meaning into this world and spread love and joy into people’s homes, family life, relationships, and friendships.

Thank you.
Love,
Talin Orfali Ghazarian

Happy New Year 2020 Everybody! Happy New Decade!

There is so much I need to write about but do not know where to begin. I just have so much on my mind and in my heart about so many things. When I write about it, it will release the pressures within me. Writing is very therapeutic for me and where I feel so good at doing. Mostly positive, but also things that I have been through in my life. I’ve been given this gift from God to write, to express myself and to help others too with whatever they are going through too. I love seeing people be happy, smiling, having a good time and living their best life.

Life is too short to dwell on the past and to deal with people who put you down, humiliate and ridicule you. It is 2020 now and a new decade to focus on true and loving people, to be happy, to think happy, to love and be kind, enjoy your life.

What you do in your life, how you lead it, where you go, and how you control it, you have no need to explain to anybody else everyone walks in their own shoes, everyone has differences. You have no idea what somebody is going through in their lives. Always important to be understanding, nice, loving, kind and appreciative. Compassion, and giving someone compliments and accepting is truly a great gift you can give to someone. You truly have no idea of what a positive impact that will be on someone.

Happy New Year 2020 everyone and have an awesome new decade filled with health, happiness and good things. May your memories of this decade be good ones. Enjoy and uplift yourself and everyone around you.

How to Make This World A Better Place In The New Decade

As the years and decades go on, years keep going by so quickly and time is just flying by. As another decade comes to an end, a new one begins. What are your expectations for 2020 and this new decade? What would you like to see the change in this world? What can we do to better our world? I have a few ideas in mind to share with you all on what we can do together to make this world a better place and to start off the decade right. Here are some of them:

– Be kind to each other and look out for one another.

– Spread love and cheer.

– Be patient, and do not rush your life and what you have to do.

– Spend more time face-to-face with loved ones and take breaks from screens, social media and online. come up with activities, fun things to do with your family and friends that do not involve technology and gaming. Our lives are being taken over by all that. Time to take a step back and evaluate our lives. Social Media and technology isn’t everything. Whatever happened to our brains and actually using it without apps helping us?

– Have actual meaningful conversations with people, interact and communicate vocally face-to-face. Develop your emotions, personality and come up with great things to talk about, use your mind, current events, and subjects to discuss.

– Reach out to lonely people, those who do not have a lot of friends, welcome them into your life and work to preserve friendships and relationships.

– Do positive things to help your local communities, get out there and be involved in inspiring, doing good deeds for others.

– Steer away from negativity, the drama that people create, and focus on positive things that can make a great difference in a person’s life.

– Stay away from Stupid and pathetic trends online that have no meaning, substance and a purpose. Always think before you get into it. chances are its not a good idea.

– Before commenting and passing judgment on others on social media, make sure before clicking on that submit, send or post button, that it is not rude and terrible. Always practice good thoughts. Hiding behind screens doesn’t make you entitled to be rude to others and to say mean things. Be careful. Words are far more hurtful than anything else. Take care of it and it will take care of you.

– Appreciate more about life, be grateful for people around you, cherish loved ones and never take anybody or anything for granted.

– Never take advantage of the goodness of people’s hearts, be good to kind-hearted, soft-hearted and great people in this life. Never treat them with disrespect. They will go to the ends of the earth, they will do anything and everything for you. Do not use them to your advantage and always be thankful and appreciate them. It is a rare thing in this world now to find generous people who do good things from their heart without expecting anything in return. That is so sweet and thoughtful of them.

– Money and material things are a necessity in our lives but do not think that is the only way to win a person’s heart. Don’t take advantage of people’s generosity.

– If you are a fake in this world, it is not a good trait. Be real, be who you are. Fakeness is not a great thing at all. Be original and do not put on a show and pretend. You will be caught sooner or later. Lies do come out. Steer far away from that.

– Say please, thank you, and develop good manners, do not be selfish, apologize for wrong-doings, admit your faults, respect each other.

– Have a great outlook on life, surround yourself with positive vibes, keep thinking good thoughts.

– Enjoy your life. You only have one. Do anything and everything you can before it is too late. Travel, enjoy the scenery, get out there and do things you wouldn’t normally do, create a to-do list and goals you want to achieve.

– We all go through problems in our personal lives, and we all deal with things in different ways, always a good idea to be nice and say good things to people all the time.

– Smile when you go out in public, hold the door for people going in and out, say thank you and you’re welcome, be patient when at restaurants, fast food places, be kind to your server and waitress and speak nicely, be kind to those working in retail, say thank you and appreciate people working and standing for those long hours serving you.

– Take care of the world, do not litter, help your neighbors around you, take care of the environment, and ultimately take care of yourself.

The list can go on and on. It is up to us people in this world to make the world a better place. The earth has life on it. It is important to take care of it, so it can take care of us. We only have one life to live. We should do everything we can while we are still living to do good things and to leave a great legacy to our loved ones and communities.

What are some of your ideas on making the world a better place? Please leave politics and religion out of your ideas, please. Everything else welcome. Thank you.

The Baby Yoda Poem

The Baby Yoda Poem
By: Talin Orfali Ghazarian – talinorfali.wordpress.com

Baby Yoda all cute and sweet
Ever so adorable, even your tiny little feet,
All of us people have gone so crazy for you,
You are so loved, that I wish you had a clue.

All the videos, photos, memes galore,
That we can never get tired and want more,
All the coos, moves and all the power,
we love looking at you hour after hour.

Your cuteness is so very overloaded,
That your videos and memes are downloaded,
In the galaxy and universe, you have taken over,
You are so green and lovely like a lucky four-leaf clover.

Baby Yoda sees a frog and eats it
Swallowing every piece bit by bit,
He loves drinking his choccy milk,
it is so tasty that it goes down gentle like silk.

Oh baby Yoda, we are so obsessed,
That you brought people together and we are so blessed.
