Express Yourself!

My love of writing allows me to express myself creatively. My creativity discovered allows me to appreciate beautiful things. I see the beauty in abstracts, lines, colors, life. I find myself observing everything I see with a keen eye. Being able to express yourself is one of the most important thing for any person to do.
My Beautiful First born is such a creative force!

In Support of Peace - Viva Frances

I wanted to share my dismay on how devastating the terror attacks in Paris and Lebanon was.  I didn't even hear about what happened in Lebanon until days later.  Sometimes the news that gets to us is filtered down.  While that is not even important, I wanted to express my condolences to all who have lost loved ones in Paris, and anywhere that was affected by these cowardly acts.

As I mentioned in the article I linked below, I have readership from France and am so grateful for everyone who do continue to stop by and read with me.

Please go to the article below:

Operation Motivation: You Are Loved Just Because

I like to think that everyone of us in this world has someone who loves them, or care about them in some way.  It doesn't matter what type of love it is; love filled with passion, or simply a love of friendship.  As long as it is love from someone that shares affection, care, or thoughtfulness for another.

I have 51 Drafts but I can't seem to post 1 article

It's not that I've lost my Muse. Though sometimes it seems like it.  I have such a great plan for November and get you all excited and waiting with bated breaths to read with me my dear readers. You've read the previous article, before the one geared towards Halloween?  If not, go on, read it.

I thought about taking a break, but it isn't the right time to take one.  After all, the holidays are "around the corner", there are better days ahead to do it then.

Where to go if we all turn into Zombies!

I received an email recently with an invitation to write about what I would do/pack if we had a Zombie Apocalypse.  Hmmm...what would I do...?  I haven't thought about it as seriously yet!  I do enjoy watching Walking Dead, hanging out with the Talking Dead fun and re-watching all of the Resident Evil series.  But I haven't decided what I would do if there was an invasion of the walking dead! 

What would I pack?  Well, first thing, water of course! You can't have enough of that!  Dry goods, food that will be light to travel, such as army-type rations.  Raincoat, I would wear boots and have hairbands, sunscreen, lipbalm, mascara-HA! A comb.  Sleeping bag. Clothes...tank tops, shorts, jeans, undies....does any of this make sense?!!! Would I have the time?  Who knows!lol! I do know that I would want whatever I do take with me to be durable, able to travel, fold, get wet, keep me warm.  Yikes....I'm already going gah-ga just thinking about it all!

Operation Motivation: Being thankful

October is almost at an end. Fall has already visited so many of our cities.  Out comes the jackets, bye bye flip flops.  Do you ever wonder what will be next for you?  I'm not talking about the daily stuff you do, work, school, family, errands, pay bills, that's all a part of what I call "the daily grind".  I posted a video on fabulously curvy blog's fanpage on Facebook where I talked about being excited to be writing and sharing again.  Do go stop by and watch it.  I also mentioned that with November coming, I have a theme in mind that will be a great way for me to get writing more often again.

I love this drawing created with my grandson JJ

What do you think of when it's November?  For many of us Americans, of course it is Thanksgiving!  Thanksgiving is family time for many, eating, sharing, doing stuff together...just being thankful for our loved ones and our lives. The theme I would like to focus on the blog for November is being thankful.  It is a wonderful thing to be thankful for life, love that you have of friends and family.  You can be thankful for anything that gives you joy; and even peace of mind. What are some of the things that you are personally thankful for?  How do you express your feelings?  Have you ever wanted to say thank you to anyone but never had the chance to?

Operation Motivation: Don't Forget to Have Fun

Sometimes we forget to enjoy our lives. We don't seem to remember that we are not just here to pay bills and worry and get stressed out.

No, we have to remember that we are humans, we make mistakes, we are sometimes wrong and we are oh so fallible!
