World Peace Event!

  I am creating a "World Peace Event!" here at my Windows Live Spaces site and I had the information all filled out on the Events World PeaceForm that you use to make an event. I pressed the Create Button at the bottom of the screen and got the dreaded Server Error and lost all my information. I took that as a sign that I must be doing something wrong or today was not the day to accomplish this task. I did manage to save the description:

I thought that it would be great to have an event celebrating World Peace Day and I am going to be updating this entry with a future Blog posts to really try and promote World Peace. For a small preview of what I am trying to say by doing this:

I am going to use this Anniversary Icon Anniversary Iconfor the template here in Windows Live Spaces because I liked the hearts and flowers on the theme, like I said I will be working on this event. So I have to start all over again, but this time I am going to do the Blog post first so I have the HTLM to put in the description for the event. I have published this Background Table with the links to all my previous entries on World Peace so that you can see that this is not something new to me, but I want to post this description:

I believe we will see World Peace when God brings the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. As long as the Evil one is roaming the earth devouring souls there can be no peace. I am sending you this invitation to attend my World Peace Event whether you are religious, or atheist, or spiritual no matter what your beliefs are, Please Attend! I believe in God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit but that is my belief. World Peace is about helping other people to live better lives.

My entry: 10 Million Clicks For Peace™

It starts one click, one heart, one person at a time!

It just seems like, to me, we have all the money in the world for making wars and killing each other, but yet we let people starve to death and drink contaminated water. What is wrong with us? We spend millions of dollars on things that don't help other people. Please join me on September 21, 2008 to spread the word on World Peace Day to make the world a better place today!

10 Million Clicks For Peace

This is from my 10 Million Clicks for Peace page and you may be thinking, "Why am I doing this?" I will show you...Here's My Impact Meter:My Impact Meter

Yes, that's my impact of on the left there. You can barely see it, because it has only three people on the meter. Out of all the people that I sent invitations to, only three people joined me in the cause of helping people obtaining World Peace! It is not very impressive is it? And that's why I am trying again to try and help other people; I think that's a very worthy cause: Don't You? Join Me!

Here's My Impact Tree: My Impact Tree

That is right, do not strain your eyes looking there is not one leaf on this tree. Because I haven't accomplished anything by getting people to join me in this very worthy cause, but I really don't find that so unusual either. I haven't even done what I could do to try and make the world a better palace. I made a few Blog entries and I try to pray every day for people that are in need, and that's one of the reasons I am trying to have this event!

I am going to be sending out the invitations to everyone on my Email list and I hope that you will do the same. Join me in trying to help other people by promoting World Peace!

I Like You!

Why is it so very hard? at least for me it is to say, "I Like You!" Luvlinks had this posted: I Like You and I left this comment:


I really liked this greeting, comment, statement, cartoon or whatever you want to call it…It made me feel good because I think we all want to be “liked” don’t you? Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us; being liked doesn’t cost anything and it is much better than the alternative being “hated.”


I like you and Enjoy Life: I hope that you have a great day; you have certainly made mine much better.


Just wanting to be liked,


       Jeff


I realize the cartoon is made for children but I also felt a hesitation not to express what I felt when I saw the I Like You cartoon. What is that hesitation? Am I afraid to express a very normal reaction to someone else saying that they like me? I think it has something to do with not being able to share the love that God has so graciously gave to the world John 3:16-22, or is it because I am afraid of what others may think of me?


I often find myself not leaving a comment on someone else's page even though what they are talking about has created thoughts that I would like to share or say. I believe it is the child in me that is afraid to express my thoughts at times. The feeling of being laughed at or ridiculed by other people because I have expressed my feelings openly comes to mind to deter me from speaking.


Confronting these kinds of thoughts and feelings is something I have been working on by writing in my Blog. It has been a very tedious and emotional process as I fight with my inner self to write and express myself by writing. Just sharing these thoughts leaves me wondering why I feel the need to write such things. It becomes a very personal stand off in my soul between the extraverted and the introverted part of my personality: In that one part of me wants to share and the other wants to keep quiet.


I want to Thank Luvlinks for my writing prompt today and I am sure that she had no idea that this little cartoon could result in me writing my inner most feelings about telling someone that you like them when really it should be no big deal. This is just my way of getting my daily therapy by writing the thoughts in my head!

I am Thinking of You!

Meet Friends
I am starting a new group at the Experience Project: "I am Thinking of You" it has been a long time since I wrote anything to share with everyone at the site. This is my story for starting the group, and I am publishing this entry in my main Blog here in Windows Live Space and I will post it in my Blog at the Experience Project so that you can follow any of the links.

I write something every day in my Windows Live Space Blog because I have challenged myself to do so. Anyone is welcome to read what I write, but I received an Email yesterday that I wanted to especially share with all my Experience Project friends it's called: Two Traveling Angels.


The problem is how do I do that? I get frustrated trying to figure out the best way to be heard on all the different sites. Example: I have a StumbleUpon Blog, an Experience Project Blog, a Twitter account, and a Windows Live Spaces Blog.


I have tried to write in my Windows Blog, and then duplicate my entries into the other Blogs, but that seems rather redundant. I know I could write something for each Blog but that's just too much for me, because I have to record everything that I write in my Windows Blog, which is just a compulsive behavioral thing that I have to do.


I think everyone will like this group, in fact, RockyBear has already joined the group and has her story done already, and I haven't even finished my story yet. I hope that everyone will enjoy this group, and feel free to let others know that you were thinking of them.


If you want to follow any of the links in this story you can find it in my Blog (click here).

I want to meet You!

 Stating my intentions can be one of the most difficult things for me to do that's why I am saying, "I want to meet You!" Meeting new people was one of the main reasons why I wanted to start my Windows Live Space site. Yet I have not come right out and said that.

A friend from the Experience Project said, "You deserve a LOT more friends...what's the deal with that??" I said, "I have no idea about the friends, I have always had a hard time meeting and making new friends. I often think that something is wrong with me, in regards, to how I am perceived by others."

I got this idea about trying the direct approach from a new friend on Live QnA because he comes right out and asks the question, "Do you want to be my friend?" How will I every meet new people and make new friends if I don't come right out and say it?

If you don't communicate what your looking for: Be it new friends, meeting new people, what you want from life or whatever your desire is, how can you expect to receive what it is that you want? What I am talking about here is the steps to The Law of Attraction from The Secret.

The reason that I am writing this today is I am starting a new group at the Experience Project called: I want to meet You! I am going to use this post as my story to start the group. There's more to it than that though and I am working on being more straight forward with what I am trying say. As in the way that I write and I have a lot to learn about writing and the way that I use the words that I choose.

Thanks for Listening,

Light A Candle

Light A Candle The other day I wrote: Have you seen any Signs?  and at the end of that entry I have a link to "Light A Candle" and my candle is no longer burning. Now no one can see what I had said when I lit my candle. I am going to light another candle today, but this time I am going to get a picture of it and put it in my Blog so that when the candle goes out I can still see the message.

 Here is a picture of My Candle:My Candle

This is what it says: This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5

I really enjoyed lighting this candle and I lit it for Peace. I would like to offer you the opportunity to light a candle too! Click Here to Light A Candle for whatever reason that you may have or to Meditate on what you are Grateful for today. There is something very comforting about lighting a candle and here are a few thoughts about it:

Lighting A Candle

  • As a remembrance of those we love, and the candlelight is a reflection of that love and when the flame flickers showing us movement telling us that love is alive and well.

  • To illuminate our hearts and minds opening up the possibilities of seeing the inner beauty as well as the outer beauty in all people.

  • To comfort us in times of sadness or loss and although the flame of the candle will eventually burn itself out our love and our soul is eternal.

  • For solitude and comfort when praying or meditating on the word of God, like the heat from the flame rising up into the air so will our thoughts and prayers rise up to be heard by God.

  • As the flame dances with joy for the oxygen it receives to stay lit, we too should be grateful and dance for all that has been given to us by God.

  • When we light the candle we have hope and expectations that it will stay lit and that hope should be extended to all living things for a peaceful existence.

  • As I lit my candle today and encouraged you to do the same because the more candles there are lit the more light there is in the world chasing away the darkness and making the world a better place.

You might not think that lighting a candle can change anything, but in so doing it you are putting faith in motion and with faith comes love, hope and unity in a better world for all.

I am Truly Humble!


Utopia I find life as a humbling experience: I am so glad I didn't read Janie's article: What is Your Legacy?  until after I had made my posts today, for now, "I am Truly Humble!" If I would have read her article, before I wrote today; it would have changed my whole perception of my writing. For now I feel humbled by the masters of their craft, writers. I am but a grain of sand; in comparison to the size of the sun, when it comes to great writers. I made the boastful claim Today I am a Writer! and now after reading Final Post I am struggling to put words on the page.


I would not have made that claim today, if I had read their articles, because now my writing seems unworthy for the page. But maybe that's not the way I should be looking at life and writing. When I read Andrew Olmsted's Final Post it made me want to be able to express my thoughts into writing as eloquently as he did. His Final Post is a tribute to all our military personnel to record their feelings in their own final tribute. I know that it has me thinking about "What My Legacy" might say, in fact, I will be working to achieve the quality of excellence in my writing and life that Andrew showed in his.



It is times like these that I truly wonder, What is life all about? The thought, which comes to mind, is LOVE! My heart goes out to Andrew's family, and to all the family's who have given up so much. So that we can enjoy the freedom we all know and love here in America. May God bless this great country of ours and every American!


I pray: "Lord God, Creator of all things; show mercy and love on all Your children on Earth, bless each and every one of us!"

Amen

Life is Short!

myspace codesI really liked this greeting "Life is Short" because in reality none of us know how long we have to live. I want to use it for my writing prompt today. It says: "They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them." I have heard this expression; life is short, from numerous people throughout my life. When you think about it philosophically; comparing it to eternity, life really is short.


It depends on your beliefs though; if you believe in evolution the saying, life is short, might seem true to you. Compared to the billions of years that the earth has evolved, if you lived to be 100 years old, it would seem like a very short period in time in comparison to the billions of years that the earth has existed. I believe that God created the earth and that life is everlasting, our soul is eternal, and although 100 years of life on earth might seem like a long time to live. It would be but a blink of an eye, in comparison, to eternity.


I have written quite a few entries on Life not that I think that I have figured out the age old question of "The Meaning of Life" or anything like that. But the question has existed since the beginning of time and the reason that I am writing about it has to do with my New Year's Resolution and my goal: To have a Zest for Life! Because of the way I hope to achieve that goal is by finding new interests in life and connecting all these thoughts together has sparked some excitement in me.


I am reading a new book: Life's Missing Instruction Manual and in reading it has brought to mind my entry: What if Life came With an Instruction Manual? I am thinking, That's quite a coincidence wouldn't you say? I just started reading the book and I am fascinated with it, it says on the cover: "The Guidebook You Should Have Been Given at Birth" I am also thinking, Well, it's better late than never!

Are You Lonely?

 I have to Thank Karen at the Write Stuff for my writing prompt today "Are You Lonely?" because she posted an article from their archives A Lonely Profession. The first thought that comes to mind is: How can anyone be lonely with well over  6,000,000,000 people in the world? but I understand what she's saying, because I feel lonely sometimes too. It doesn't really matter how many people there're in the world if you're feeling lonely, it's that connection with another person that you can relate to that makes us feel sociable.

In the article Karen asks, "How do you alleviate your loneliness?" and the first thought that comes to my mind is: I really thought that Blogging was going to help me feel less lonely. Although I have met a lot of people that I feel are my friends by writing in my Blog everyday, it hasn't made me feel less lonely. There's still that feeling like I am just taking to myself here, when I write in my Blog. I never know if anything that I said means anything to anyone else but me, unless they leave a comment, and those are few and far between, along with visitors.

That reminds me of the book that I am reading right now A Complaint Free World (Website) and how what we are feeling is connected to how we think, you know the Law of Attraction. Loneliness is a feeling that we have attracted into our lives by our mind and thoughts into our consciousness, where we actually have the feeling, because surely no one can feel alone in a world with how many people in it?

I was thinking of writing about my personality today but when I took the test again today I got a different answer than this: So that makes me think that I am not even alone when I am by myself, I got this other person who took the test today in my mind. I just hope that we can get along and be friends, whoever he is?

I wonder if I should leave a comment to let Karen know that she inspired me to write this today? I left this comment:

Karen, Thank you for posting: A Lonely Profession again today, I really liked reading it and your article has inspired me to write: Are You Lonely? I hadn't read it previously so it was new to me. How many other great articles do you have at the Write Stuff that I haven't read? Maybe I need to look around more and see what else you have to inspire me to write something!

Enjoy Life!

It's a beautiful day here today, I think I will get out of the house and take the dog for walk.

Thanks for Listening,

Adding Hyperlinks to Stories

The Experience Project  I know that there must be a reason, as to why? hyperlinks are not available in the stories on the Experience Project. I love the interactivity of this site, but everything that I post here is from my Windows Live Space site. Don't get me wrong, I am not promoting Live Spaces, it's just, that I use hyperlinks in almost all of my stories.


It is a way to explain, give examples, show people what you're talking about and to give you an example of what I am trying to say: The name of my Windows Live Space is My Unique Life it looks like: http://myuniquelifespace.spaces.live.com/  without hyperlinks, and I could make any word a link to my site with hyperlinks. I am posting this in my Blog in Live Spaces and as a story for the group I just joined, at the Experience Project.


I am relatively new here at the Experience Project, I joined October 4, 2007, (that's a hyperlink) and I am not trying to be difficult or anything like that I Want to Improve the Experience Project. It's so confusing trying to write a story/post for two different sites but having the links available in the stories would make writing stories more informative and interactive with the Internet.

Merry Christmas!!!

 Ho! Ho! Ho!   I hope that you received for Christmas what your heart desires most in life and I just what to say, "Merry Christmas" Everyone! I am going to try and move my Countdown to Christmas clock here in my Blog today. As this Christmas entry moves down the page I want everyone to remember the Twelve Days of Christmas that I did in a non traditional way because there's more to Christmas than just today. Although today is the day that we celebrate the Birth of Jesus, just like in raising a child, there is more to being a Christian than the birth.


Let's all try and show some humanity for people that are less fortunate than ourselves and ask, "What would Jesus do?" When we go through our daily lives in this coming New Year, I know it's easier to have written that, than it will be to accomplish, but that's what I wanted to say. I have enjoyed counting down the twelve days until Christmas with my series, because it gave me a little break from trying to come up with something to write about everyday.


Did you see my Christmas E-card to the world? If you want to see it click on the picture: Holy Night


Then again, does it really matter what I write about? I don't think so, I think that if I stop trying to write like I am someone else I could make this a lot easier on myself. I say that because of the high expectations that I place on myself when I try to write everyday and really, there's no reason for it. As I struggle with trying to write something in my Blog everyday, please bear with me, because I am only trying to learn something new. Me saying, "Merry Christmas!!!"


Thanks for Listening,

Hello! Can You Hear Me?


      
Merry Christmas Everyone!

As I stepped up to the microphone, tapping it lightly, and getting on my soapbox, so that everyone can see me I said, "Hello!" "Can You Hear Me?" and now I am really nervous, but I have a few things to say today and please don't anyone take offence, because that isn't my intension. However, I am going to write what's on my mind, no matter how uncomfortable it makes me feel. The first thing I want to say is, "Merry Christmas Everyone!" The video says everything that I wanted to say about that: Please watch it if you would like too!

I have posted the video in my Blog here at the Experience Project and here is the link to the entry: Hello! Can You Hear Me? if you what to read the rest of it.

It's Not Easy to be Me


     
Superman by Five for Fighting: It's Not Easy to be Me!

 I love this song Superman by Five for Fighting and I am going to use it for my writing prompt today because I truly feel that "It's Not Easy to be Me." I would think that everyone feels that way from time to time, when things just don't seem to be going quite right or you're having a bad day. The thought tends to inspire self-pity, and that's not what I want to write about. Acceptance is more along the lines of what I wanted to try and talk about today because it has been on my mind lately.



The premise of trying to be something that you're not is weighing heavily on my mind right now, and I think that it's due to the fact that I haven't found what excites me in life. Then again, maybe this is who I am, and I need to accept the reality of my existence and just be grateful for being who I am. I have been trying to use my Blog as a tool to assist me in discovering exactly what my plans are for the future, without much success, I might add.


I feel that part of the reason that I haven't been very successful with this approach is because of the paranoia that I feel about having my thoughts exposed on the Internet for eternity. One part of me thinks what difference does it make, you're just one of (how ever many Blogs there're at this point in time) and the other part of me thinks that I am exposing too much about myself to the world. Although I have experienced a great relief in expressing myself in writing (the therapeutic value that I have talked about) I still feel that there's a great deal more to be learned by doing this.



The problem is that I literally need to be hit over the head with something in order to be enlightened by it, which only adds to the distress that I feel. I can be so naive when it comes to figuring out what's going on inside of me; in my heart or in my mind, making it very difficult to determine exactly what the trouble is going on inside of me. I seem to have run out of words to continue with this for today, and I don't really think that I have addressed the real problem that's going on here. Me saying, "It's Not Easy to be Me."


Thanks for Listening,

Love in the Blogosphere


What a wonderful concept "Love in the Blogosphere" and Bobby has really shown some Blogging Razzmatazz with this article: The Blogging For Friendship Writing Project. I really needed a writing prompt like this one to get me thinking about how everyone is connected by the Internet, friendships, caring and Love. I might not have a high standing in regards to people visiting my site but that doesn't mean I don't feel the love of the people that are sharing it with me.


Bobby has over 1300 beautifully written words not counting the links and I usually struggle to write about 250 words in an entry. He talked about writing pages and pages of words of appreciation to all his friends but really all you need to say is "I Love You" there aren't enough words to express the gratitude of true friendship. I am so honored that Bobby included me on his list but you don't need to be tagged to participate in what he's saying, just write your own article.


Conceder reading this as you are being tagged! Write something regarding The Friendship Writing Project; this is your opportunity to express your love of friendship to the world. I wish that I felt as excited as Bobby was in his writing of this story but we each have our moments of passion.


A few of my entries you may find relevant:



I really liked this about friends:


"Friends are special people. If you are a friend, it means you were chosen. You are not in someone's life by happenstance, or by accident of birth. You're in someone's life because he or she wants you there.

Every friend is a gift from God. Treat each of your friends as the gift he or she is.
"


I wanted to Thank Bobby for writing this great article and I have done the best that I can in trying to express my thoughts in writing. As Bobby said, "I stand as one person with all of you. We are in this thing together. Let us all stand together, regardless of where were from. Let’s join as one race. We are the human race!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


It starts one click, one heart, one person at a time

My health: extremely well

The Secret: Technology

The amazing thing about inspiration for writing something is I never know where it's going to come from, like today "The Secret: Technology." I was reading an Email from wxpnews and this article: inspired me to write this review that could have been the end of the story. I could have put the review in my Blog and called that my entry for today and been done with writing for today.


I wanted to tell you about two things that have happened to me; regarding The Secret, the Law of Attraction and if you haven't heard about what I am talking about watch the Movie. I am reading a new book and visualizing your desires is part of the manifestation process of making the Law of Attraction work for you, I know it sounds strange but let me tell you what happened to me.


I desired a RAZR cell phone since they started selling them (The way people wanted the iPhone) the only thing was I couldn't afford one. My wife was on the AT&T wireless page and they had a special on the RAZR for free with a mail in rebate and she order one for me, today the price is $49.99 with the rebate. My other desire, that some how miraculously manifested in my life was an iPod and this is from my Blog entry: " I received an Apple iPod nano as a complimentary gift from one of the local business establishments in the area and I have been loading some of my CDs into iTunes."


Call it a coincidence, call it Luck, call it whatever you want; I believe it was the Law of Attraction and the visualization of my desires. What I associate the Law of Attraction with is God's way of communicating His will to us and allowing us to have the things that we desire. Now I don't expect you to believe that I can actually visualize things into my life but I am visualizing this check as I am writing this from this entry. Me writing about "The Secret: Technology."


This story/entry is from September 26, 2007 and the links won't work here but if your interested in following any of them I am posting this in my Blog here at the Experience Project.

I Love Jesus!



Image Hosted by ImageShack.usI received this Email today and I don't even know 10 people to send it to so I thought that I would post it in my Blog. Maybe 10 people will see it:
 


Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.


 Matthew 10:32-33


I thought this was very powerful!


If you love this man please forward to 10 people.

He did something for you, now do something for him.

Spread his word, and you'll be rewarded.

How will you be rewarded?


God is going to shift things around for you tonight & let things work in your favor. If you believe, send this to ten people. Do not ignore him. You must have unwavering faith.

Hand Full on Purpose

  I was watching Joel Osteen this morning and his message was titled: Favor Has Been Released Into Your Future and the theme was "Hand Full on Purpose." God has great things already in place for you to receive in your future; it is God's favor. All you have to do is stay faithful to God and He shall show His favor on you. Joel used The Story Of Ruth to illustrate hand full on purpose and these verses of scripture:


Rather, pull out some stalks for her from the bundles and leave them for her to pick up, and don't rebuke her.


Ruth 2:16


But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.


Deuteronomy 8:18


May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised!


Deuteronomy 1:11


Delight yourself in the LORD

       and he will give you the desires of your heart.


Psalm 37:4


 I just Love his positive messages of faith and hope that he preaches; it makes me feel good to know that God has great things in store for my Life. You can down load Joel's message for free in a podcast, I use, iTunes just by getting a Sign In Identity or watch the video. Me receiving my "Hand Full on Purpose."


Thanks for Listening,


       Jeff


It Looks like there aren't any people interested in joining me in this group right now because I am the only member. Maybe you haven't heard Joel's messages and I know the links won't work here so if any one's interested in following any of the links from my story I am going to post this in my Blog here at the Experience Project.


May God Bless you!

Regarding Comment

This is an entry from July 21, 2007 in my Blog and I could spend a lot of time editing it and making it fit in here at the Experience Project. Or I could post it as it is and maybe you could comment on it and let me know what you thing about me posting previously written entries here. I know the links won't work here so if you're interested in following any of them I will be posting this in my Blog here at the Experience Project.


The entry:


I have tried to write about this topic "Regarding Comment" in the past when I wrote Are Comments Writing? And Tammi brought up the topic in the Write Stuff Forum with this entry: comment about comments which prompted me to write my third entry in the forum and because I like to put almost everything that I write in my Blog here is my reply to Re: comment about comments:


I feel the same way you do Tammi, I never know what to say when trying to leave a comment and I would never intentionally say anything that might hurt someone's feelings. I too, make a lot of mistakes when I write which makes me hesitant to leave a comment. And the embarrassment of not being able to correct the mistake when you can see it just makes me feel like I want to give up trying to improve. I struggle with my spelling, my comprehension and my ability to communicate my thoughts into writing.

I don't know if I consider myself shy or not? But I do know that I am very introverted and have trouble expressing myself properly but if I don't try to improve, things will never change. So I accept the risk of exposing my vulnerability of who I really am.

What always encourages me to comment is a straight forward question which usually allows me to express my opinion, i.e. your question Re: comment about comments. It is something that I have wanted to say but just never put forth the effort to actually come right out and say it.

My suggestion is to accept the fact that we are human beings and are going to make mistakes. That's what I have done is to over look the mistakes and try to learn from them. Who can truly say they have never made a mistake in their life? Not me, but my willingness to succeed keeps me going, just responding to your message makes me feel uncomfortable, but I am not giving up yet!

If it wasn’t for spelling and grammar checker I wouldn’t be able to write this today, I Thank you for bringing the subject up and maybe by writing about it we can both improve our ability to comment.

Her reply gave me the confidence to post this in my Blog today and I must say I have enjoyed becoming a member of the forum. I also read a wonderful poem in the forum, that I can't share with you by Finn, from what I can see that section is for members only.

I also read this Write Stuff article: Analyze This which had you read this article: 3:57 (Night Vision) which I found to be very compelling and I tried to let the writer's style sink in to my writing ability, not that it will. The questions on the Analyze This article left me feeling like a student in class with that strange look in my eye that I had no clue what my answers would be. Me writing about "Regarding Comment."

Thanks for Listening,

I Hate It When People Don't Comment

My mood: extremely enthralled

Be a Good Example



Image Hosted by ImageShack.usI started another group in The Experience Project  today:



On Sunday mornings I just Love to watch Joel Osteen's  positive messages of Peace, Love, Hope and Faith for the World. His positive prayer messages have changed the way that I think; I don't know if Joel believes in "Law of Attraction" or not but his messages sound a lot like what is said in "The Secret" in that we attract into our lives what we think about and it could change your life to think better thoughts.


From my Blog:



In Be a Good Example Joel was talking about one of the best ways to let your light shine is to be a good example, put a smile on your face and show that you care by the way that you treat other people. Preach at all times, use words only when necessary, was a quote that he used that he had heard. The smile on your face can tell others how you feel.


A bumper sticker that he saw read, "If you are born again? Tell your face!" Be a blessing to someone else, your life is sending a message. These are just a few of the beautiful things that he said in his message, I encourage you to listen to him, and I can't do it justice here with my writing ability. He is so funny at times with his messages; it brings joy to my heart.


I was compelled to write this in hopes that you too may feel the joy that I feel today; I don't want to impose my beliefs on you. No matter what your Religious belief: There is no denying that you're human and you feel a relationship with your soul, even if you deny it, it is there. Me hoping to "Be a Good Example."


Thanks for Listening,

Writing Requires Concentration

I have so many thoughts on my mind right now and I am finding it very difficult to write because "Writing Requires Concentration." Maybe it's because I don't want to work that hard at putting a story together. Maybe I should write two to three entries instead of trying to put it all in one post, let's see what happens.


This article I really liked because of this: "It’s why things like Blog Rush have initial success, everyone is looking for that next quick fix. Like a bunch of cyber junkies. Only our drug of choice is knowledge." It reminded me of the feeling that I had when I wrote Blogging Razzmatazz and I just had to mention it and how much I liked that feeling.


Trying to write one article for three different Blogs is putting my imagination to work. This post: We all are People Behind The Keyboard was one of my previous entries that I didn't write but I want to bring it to peoples' attention today. Maybe even make a group out of it for the Experience Project because I like it so much.


I asked this in Live QnA today: Have you heard about The Experience Project? There're two responses to the question both positive at this time. I guess that's all I really wanted to say; I have a lot more work to do posting this on the different websites. Me saying, "Writing Requires Concentration."


Thanks for Listening,
