Getting Into Poetry Mode

Recently, I began to get into poetry mode. I really enjoy writing poems. I like it especially when I rhyme the words and make it flow perfectly together. In my previous blog post, I wrote a poem on Los Angeles and my love for the city. I tried my best to include all aspects about Los Angeles and what it is known for etc… I tried to cover all the bases on it all. Since I am going to be going to LA soon for the 3rd time, I thought it would be fitting for me to write about it.

My Los Angeles poem can also be made into a song lyric that can be sung by a professional that is famous or something as I am far far far from it. lol. I won’t even sing in the shower. That is not my talent.

In the next little while, you will see me posting poetry here and there. Not everyday though. I like to keep my readers in suspense as to what I am going to write about next. I like mixing it up a bit and write about all kinds of topics, types of writing, and of course the quotes and phrases I find online with of course giving the person credit if it is not my work.

I am excited to share it with my family, friends, fans, readers and the world.

Anyway, stay tuned for my poetry mode. You never know, the next blog might be just that. :)

Betty white just recently celebrated her 94th birthday. She is an actress, entertainer, comedian, all-around an incredible and beautiful role model, an Idol to many.

Now, Here are some quotes that Betty White said from http://www.brainyquote.com that I compiled.

– It’s your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don’t take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver.

– I had to make a major decision with myself because I just don’t think you can do both: try to have a baby career and raise it and have a baby baby and raise it. And to try to do justice to either one. It was a very conscious decision on my part not to have children – which I have never regretted.

– During the Depression, my dad made radios to sell to make extra money. Nobody had any money to buy the radios, so he would trade them for dogs. He built kennels in the backyard, and he cared for the dogs.

– I love words. Sudoku I don’t get into, I’m not into numbers that much, and there are people who are hooked on that. But crossword puzzles, I just can’t – if I get a puppy and I paper train him and I put the – if all of a sudden I’d open the paper and there’s a crossword puzzle – ‘No, no, you can’t go on that, honey. I’ll take it.’

– I think older women still have a full life.

– Animal lover that I am, a cougar I am not.

– I’m not into animal rights. I’m only into animal welfare and health. I’ve been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the ’70s. We’re a health organization. We fund campaign health studies for dogs, cats, lizards and wildlife. I’ve worked with the L.A. Zoo for about the same length of time. I get my animal fixes!

– Anger tears me up inside… My own… or anyone else’s.

– If you’re walking with your lady on the sidewalk, I still like to see a man walking street-side, to protect the lady from traffic. I grew up with that, and I hate to see something like that get lost. I still like to see that a man opens the door. I like those touches of chivalry that are fast disappearing.

– Why retire from something if you’re loving it so much and enjoying it so much, and you’re blessed with another group of people to work with like the gang on ‘Hot in Cleveland?’ Why would I think of retiring? What would I do with myself?

– I think a lot of people like hidden-camera shows where they think they’re spying on somebody who doesn’t know they’re looking at them. And nobody takes it seriously – you either enjoy it and get a laugh out of the reactions or not.

– Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we’re abusing our planet to the point of almost no return.

– Long ago, I did a five-and-a-half-hour-a-day, six-day-a-week talk show for four years, early on, in Los Angeles – local show. And when you are on that many hours with no script, you know, you get very comfortable, maybe overly comfortable with that small audience.

– It’s a little-known fact that one in three family pets gets lost during its lifetime, and approximately 9 million pets enter shelters each year. That’s why it’s a wonderful thing to get your pet microchipped and registered with your contact information because then they can be located and the owners can track where their pets are.

– I enjoy being busy, I really do. Remember, I’m the stub end of the railroad. I have no family, so I’m not taking busy time away from people that I should be spending it with. So I’m just relaxing and enjoying it.

– If you have one good series, you know, it’s a blessing. Two good series is unusual. Three is a phenomenon, but right now, I’m working with these wonderful women on ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ and Valerie Bertinelli, and Wendy Malick and Jane Leeves are like, it’s like the buddy-ship we had on ‘Golden Girls’ and ‘Mary Tyler Moore.’

– My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don’t know how I would have lived without animals around me. I’m fascinated by them – both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it’s made such a difference in my lifetime.

– I think it’s your mental attitude. So many of us start dreading age in high school and that’s a waste of a lovely life. ‘Oh… I’m 30, oh, I’m 40, oh, 50.’ Make the most of it.

– The bottom line is, I’m blessed with good health. On top of that, I don’t go around thinking ‘Oh, I’m 90, I better do this or I better do that.’ I’m just Betty. I’m the same Betty that I’ve always been. Take it or leave it.

– Take personal responsibility. A lot of people go, ‘Well, I’ll get a dog because I have a kid and a kid needs a dog.’ And it doesn’t work out for that dog and the dog is on the street.

– Of course, nobody’s tearing my door down. If you’re successful you’re going to intimidate and scare off the people you’d like to spend time with. They’re not going to approach you. And the ones who do are often there because you are a celebrity.

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

In life, we all have our moments of darkness when unfortunate things happen to us such as losing a loved one, being bullied by others, when we lose a job, when other bad things happen, and I am sure we all have our problems in life and we just want to find ourselves after such a terrible ordeal we’ve had in our lives. Do you ever wonder when you will find brightness even in the darkest hours and days of your life? Do you have feel like you will never find that light again because of the unfortunate things going on in your life? Your loved ones will help guide you and your true friends will stick by you too. I know this is going to sound strange coming from a blogger, but I am also here too. I want to be the moon to you because I want to shine brightness on your darkest days of your life, I want to be there for you, and if you have anything you want to talk about and if you have something on your mind that you want to share and everything, I am here to listen and I will do the best of my ability to give you advice and get you back on your feet.

This morning, I found this quote on Facebook and It is such a powerful quote and it got me to think about how so many people in this world now are living in darkness because now there are so many problems happening in our world and it keeps on increasing. Never forget Me Talin Orfali, I am here for everyone and I want to be the moon in your lives. Never forget these words I say to you because I mean it and stick by to my words especially when it comes to making a difference in someones life, making positive and happy changes to ones life. It is what I am about and it is my life’s motto. I am very passionate about people, and I detest discrimination in every way. I have always told my family and friends, that I am here for you in your darkest days and in the brightest days, and they know that they can confide in me and tell me everything that is going on in their lives and they do tell me everything and that makes me feel great because they know that they can always trust me.

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

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

The Intern Movie – With Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway

Warning: These are spoilers from the Movie “The Intern”. With Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. If you do not want me to spoil the movie for you and want to see it, do not proceed, but if you would like to read what I have to say, then please by all means proceed.

For the last couple of months, I have heard about this movie called “The Intern” with Robert De Niro, and Anne Hathaway, and I finally saw the movie, and I must say, that it is a great movie that is so tastefully done. Of all the recent films, I have seen in the past year, I give this one a two-thumbs-up. There was a quote that Robert De Niro “Ben” Says, that really got me thinking about is “You are never wrong, when you do the right thing”. That is absolutely true.

It is about a Woman named Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway), who is the founder of a company called “About the Fit” and she builds up the company with a website, fashion, dresses, shipping and lands herself in a struggle and is looking for a senior intern over 65 years of age. So, Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro), sees an ad for that position, so he reads the ad and makes a video cover letter, he goes to several interviews at “About the Fit” and he gets hired. He made a big impact in the company and assisted those in need of guidance and doing the right thing and advising people on what to do and how to run a company. Plus there is a lot more about the movie. It is a must see.

The moral and the lesson taught from this movie is, never give up on what you worked so hard for, and in any life situation, that it is never shameful to ask for help, advice or guidance through tough times in life, however it is shameful to never ask and to gain knowledge and expertise of those who have experienced it all and who can guide you to the right path with whatever you do. When you are unsure, never hesitate to ask.

When you work hard in life, especially the drive and passion you have for whatever talent(s), skills, attributes or whatever the case maybe, it is so important to keep your head up high and reach for the stars. For example if you love Art, Entertainment, Being a doctor, real estate agent, lawyer, pharmacist, baker, chef, someone in hospitality, auto’s, and anything else in life, always go for what you enjoy and what you build yourself up to be and never allow anybody to tell you that you cannot do it, or have the capabilities to do so. Those people are not you, they don’t know how to walk in your own shoes, and this is your journey to climb that mountain with every step you take.

Incredible and wonderful movie.

I will watch it again. I give it a 5 star.
