Hi Everyone! I hope that you are all having a wonderful Christmas holiday. Just to let you know now, this blog post is not going to full of cheer today, cause I am still angry about the other night. Imaging you are driving home from work and you spot something in the sky and it looks like an alien invasion. What would you do? Well, on December 22, 2017, I totally freaked out; and I was not alone. I had just gotten off work and was driving west on Interstate 10, as I do every night. I was humming along with some classical music and I remember looking at the clock and noticing that I just might get home 15 minutes earlier than usual due to the traffic being so thinned out. Yea holidays! As I looked ahead on the stretch of highway, I noticed to the right of my vision a bunch of smoke in the sky. I first thought it was fire, then when I noticed that the smoke was coming from an object my thoughts turned to a plane must be in trouble. "What the hell? On no!" But then as it hea…

We Are All Writers!

Holiday greetings to all,

This week I have writing on the brain. Have you ever wanted to just write something, but thought, Nah! I can't write. I know exactly how that feels; I used to think like that. Even though I had had several magazine articles published in UAE, and then a self-published memoir, Bangles (Book 1) under my belt, I honestly didn't think of myself as a writer. It wasn't until I heard Big Magic on audiobook, that I let go of my own inhibitions and decided, YES! I AM A WRITER. Do I write just for myself? Not always. Most of the time I write because I want to share some kind information or knowledge with the world. (You know, leave the world a little bit of a better place than when you found it.) See, by nature, I love helping and encouraging others, and so, I attempt to do this thru my writings.

True, there are times when I just want to rant on about something stupid, irritating or even petty, but after all, I am only human and sometimes I just want to g…

(Worth sharing!!!!) The Booklet--- Doing Your Time with Peace of Mind: A Meditation Manual for Prisoners. By Doug Booth

Meditation has changed my life; so much so that I wrote a book about it (It's Hard to Meditate When Your Butt Itches). Meditation has been the catalyst in finding peace and harmony with the world around me. As a matter of fact, just yesterday, I asked a colleague what he was wanting for Christmas. He said, "Just some peace and tranquility." And then suddenly it was dittoed by someone overhearing our friendly conversation, except that they added they would be happy with only one hour of peace and tranquility. These statements were eye-opening for me. It was truly the first time that I was able to say to myself, "Wow. I wish others felt what I feel. They do not have to live in such a state of sadness and disarray." This interaction weighed heavily on my heart; so much so that I started researching again about meditation and if there was some kind of printout that was easy to understand and quick to read. I found this: Doing Your Time With Peace of Mind: A Med…

Hi guys, Today has been an extremely colorful day for me. So much so that I just had to blog about it. To start off with, I arrived at my warehouse job at 3:30 in the morning and sat down in the break room to have some coffee. Like a klutz, I knocked over my cup and my coffee went everywhere—table, chair and floor. “Dang it!” (Who wants to clean up spilt anything at 3:30 in the morning?) Once I was finished cleaning the mess up, I said,”Hey, it’s almost time to clock-in, and I still haven’t had my coffee yet.” I walked over and got another cup full, and blimey, it spilled over onto my hand. “Ouch! You know, I don’t think I'm meant to have any coffee today.” “That's what I'm beginning to think too,” said my friend brave enough to stay seated across the table from me. Well, after I clocked-in, and started at my work-station, things were just fine. Now as you may remember, from my previous blogging, I started working at Amazon’s warehouse in order to get some exercise and lose som…
