April is Genocide Awareness Month

The Month of April has arrived today. April 1st is a day where fooling and pranking people is upon us. It can be fun, but silly at the same time. There are far more important things to remember about this month.

I want to address the importance to remind everyone that the month of April is The Armenian Genocide Awareness month. Recognition, Acknowledgement, Justice and spreading awareness is absolutely imperative. The Armenian Genocide was something that was absolutely horrible, a crime that was so terrible. The Turkish Ottoman Empire and government tried to wipe and exterminate all Armenians off the face of the earth and tried to steal all our lands, but could not succeed.

April 24, 1915 was a dark day. Armenians were slaughtered, stabbed, shot, beat up, raped, displaced from their homes, taken out with full force, sent out to the desert to walk for miles and miles with no food and water, they were beat up and killed when they got tired all from the hands of the Turkish Army. 1.5 Million Armenians were massacred.

As April 2017 has arrived. This year is the 102nd year commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. Please check in with your local Armenian communities to see when demonstrations, protests and other Armenian Genocide event happenings and please participate in them all, or whichever event you can attend to. It is very important. We cannot stay silent. We need to get out there and show the world.

A lot of coverage has taken place in the last few years with prominent figures of our society have visited and documented their time in Armenia with spreading awareness about the Armenian Genocide. We need to keep going and we need to get the world to recognize not only the Armenian Genocide, but all Genocides of the world. So that history will never repeat itself. It all starts with the power to unite people of the world together and to take a stand.

If all of us in the world get along and work together for our world to recognize and acknowledge important issues, then everything will fall into place, everything we do will get the justice and peace that we all need in our lives. Be the change you want to see in the world. We cannot just speak about it. We must act on it.

Canadian Politics – Political Party Competition of Canada

In life most of us if not all of us want great leaders to lead our country with no strings attached, those who really value our life, giving back to hard working individuals, and being fair to us all. I really think that there should not be any political parties or any caucus. There should not be any politics when it comes to leading a country. Take the NDP, Liberal, Conservative, Green Party or whatever else out. Many people are so focused on all that on who is the best and who is the worst. The main and important thing is to not go to any side. It should be the side that is right and who will be responsible, who will keep promises, be good examples of our citizens in our country of Canada and really put a stop of this constant immaturity of pointing fingers and being childish. In the end whatever decisions are made really impact the rest of us who reside in Canada.

I really want to see change for the better, putting positivity, faith and encouragement back into the people of Canada. I don’t want to feel like the people who want to be the next Prime Minister of our country to go back and forth and compete. These political parties should all be taken out. I just cannot fathom it any longer.

To me, it seems more like a competition of a beauty pageant or another type of competitive show of he says, she says type of thing. There should be One Caucus, and One Canada. Only! Those who are serious, dedicated, spends money on things that matter and are important for our well-being, demonstrates quality instead of quantity, who demonstrates compassion and who really cares about us Citizen’s, Residents of Canada that really should be leading our country.

We Need Responsible and Great Leaders to Govern Our World.

In the last couple of days, On my Facebook newsfeed I saw something that I just can’t undo and  can’t bare the sight of seeing that little boy’s body washed up ashore. it has broken my heart to pieces. Just absolutely awful. I cannot stand seeing my newsfeed flooded with that image. So horrible. RIP to the little boy and his family who tried to get to Canada and escape from horrid conditions of the Refugee status when they tried to get away from life in the Middle East to come to North America. I just cannot fathom seeing those images any longer.
When is this going to end? When are we going to have better leaders to move the world forward in a positive, and happy way with allowing people to live and let live without greed, barbaric acts, cruelty, and disgusting inhumane actions? It has to stop. Innocent lives are at stake and many lives have been taken away for utter stupidity and for no reason at all. Actually There is no excuse in the book to kill others.
I do not think we will ever see a day when we will have genuinely good people to lead our world and to allow people to build a future, a foundation and a life in healthy, great conditions. People should never have to get into this predicament, but unfortunately it has come to that point and has been for several years now.
It is easy to want to become a leader, but a leader must possess many qualities that will help, empower, and be good role models for the citizens of our world. It is easy to promise, and say a few words during speeches in the media, however to keep promises, and to work on a better future, positive, and being serious about what you stand for is absolutely imperitive. Greed, Violence, Dictatorship will not get anybody that far in life. Trusting people these days are so scarce.
Unfortunately money talks greater than anybody or anything else in the world.
I know a lot of us if not all of us in the world, want to live in a better world, that we can all live without worry and go on about our lives without being in a limbo. A lot of the world’s problems begin with the leaders that do not show enough compassion, who do not prioritize, who worries about other countries rather than a leader that needs to take care of his/her country instead of sticking their nose into places that do not belong, they can focus and create a better country with many opportunities, finding cures for disease/illness, helping people in impoverished countries, making sure each person is well taken care of.
I just cannot understand how this world continues to go backward and not move forward to a better future. I know that my expectations of a great world is a lot with having responsible leaders to protect our people, but I do not think that is asking much at all. People wouldn’t have to work twice as hard, they would allow more family/personal time, not allowing people to be stressed out about a fast paced life, having a great leader giving more to people’s pockets, and so much more to a world that we can all live comfortably.
All I can really say is God help people in need, and punish those who kill, show bad examples to our people, our world, and who destroy our people and our world.
What kind of world would you like to see?
What are your expectations?

Great Night Out With Great Friends

I realized so much tonight by just going out with my friends that I go out with most Friday nights. I realized who my true friends are and who keep my head above water at all times. Tonight was one of the greatest times of my life. It was a nice relaxing and wonderful night. I realize that they truly care a lot for me and they are people I can talk to about anything and just spill my heart out. This week especially has been an emotional roller coaster ride for me and just so much worry about things which I shouldn’t worry, but its in my nature to do so. I am always worried about other people and care so much for people that I sometimes let myself go and only care for other peoples needs. I know I shouldn’t do that, but it is in my nature. Tonight took my mind off of so many things and I just had a peaceful, wonderful time not thinking about anything that bothered me.

I believe that when you find the right people to be with, and the right people to confide in and tell things to, I think that is the most special thing ever in this life. I am so happy to have found people whom get me and whom have my back when things are rough and tough. I have so much to be thankful for and as I looked at my friends tonight and thought in my head, they have got to be the coolest people ever. I am super glad I got to meet them. If it wasn’t for me going to Armenian events, bible studies, and being in the Armenian community. I would have never met these people and I would have never had this close bond with them. I am super happy that they are part of my life and I am ever so grateful for having people like them in my life that make me laugh and where I can be myself with. If I cannot be myself with people, I cannot be they’re friends and I cannot function properly, but with the people I was with tonight, I feel so comfortable and happy.

I wish everyone well and I wish everyone will find the right people to be with and to spend time with. I think it is very important to be with the right crowd and to understand each other and doing fun things together and no destroying things and acting out. As some groups destruct, vandalize others property and everything. It is super important to get into the right crowd. You wouldn’t want to end up on the news or anything would you? Always choose your friends wisely.

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. 🙂

In General, Relying on People Are Hard to Find These days.

Trust has become minimal these days and relying on people is something so rare. The world is

changing day by day, people are changing, the society is changing, peoples attitudes and the way

life is now. It is sad to see how once people who promise to be by your side always, and promise

that they will always be there for you and all of a sudden those people whom you thought you can

rely on no longer live up to their promises. It is very hurtful to see people who make promises and

cannot keep them. Especially when you think those people are close to you and who you thought

would never abandon you.

It is especially hurtful sometimes when it comes from your own family or from best friends. I know

that everyone has their lives to live and things come up, but people should not make promises that

they cannot keep. I have learned the hard way. I have learned that when you want something

done right, when you need to get somewhere, you do it yourself. It is very important to learn who

true people are these days and its important to stand up for yourself no matter what the situation

is.

It is especially hurtful to come to terms on how some people say that whatever you have on your

mind, or you want to express your feelings, talk about problems and they say that they will be

there to listen, give you advice, hug you and tell you its going to be ok, or they give you some

words of wisdom, then they do not follow through. Its so extremely hurtful, and they are feeling

you will never forget.

You must learn how to stand on your own two feet. I have learned that in the end the people

whom you once thought that you can depend on, you cannot anymore. It is unfortunate but this

is how reality is. Many times I have been let down and many people have put me down and its not

a good feeling at all.

I hope that nobody has to go through these issues. I am glad I have people in the last few years

that have really helped me through the worst times of my life, but then again those bad feelings

come back to haunt you and its not a good feeling at all. I have experienced so much in my life,

so much rejection, so much angst, anguish, everything. It was terrible once I stepped out of my

home. I don’t know if it was written on my forehead or this vibe toward me was not right. To this

very day, I still speculate, and wonder why I was bullied, why people treated me differently then

everyone else. I have always been belittled and picked on and now trusting people is very difficult

for me.

To those who are going through all this and people who have gone through it, your not alone. I am

in the same boat.
