Today is a day set aside to remember the victims of the Holocaust. I just hope everyone will draw strength and inspiration from their struggle and survival. May we never know such human horror again, and may their deaths not have been in vain. I hope their beauty reaches you wherever you are and hope that their spirits help raise yours.
Whenever something happens in my life, my Mother tells me that nothing happens without God willing it. I want to believe so much that there is a plan, that God has set my destiny and there was nothing more or less I could have done. Do you feel the presence of God in your life?
I believe that one should look at beautiful things, because the things we surround ourselves with become we are and we perceive ourselves to be. God has created this earth for us to enjoy and bask it’s beauty. I am a New Yorker and I for one, have never seen a beach like this up close and personal. That is not to say that I do not love my New York beaches. It is where I go to be calm and at peace. My favorite places in the world really. Yet, there is something about this photo, when I found it that just excited me from it’s sheer beauty and the mood it creates. Can’t you just see yourself there? Because I can. My Mother and I love to go to the beach, and one of my dreams is to take her to a beach like this. Have you ever seen a beach like this? Would you like to go?

The state of our union will always be strong! – President Barack Obama
President Obama last night delivered his 3rd State of the Union address. I cannot help but he kind of excited by it. I feel that he did a good job of making us feel united and that America can achieve again. I know that it is election year and this is what he is supposed to do, but I really was called to action, so to speak, by the speech. Someone believes in me, the President of the United States, nonetheless! America needs me to help make the country great again! And America needs you! What are you trying to accomplish on a personal level that will look great to others countries when they know an American did it?
Regarding other notes, Gabrielle Giffords is a survivor, a hero and regardless of her political beliefs, she has become an American to look up to.
Michelle Obama looked like pure class as always. For those who aren’t American reading this and don’t understand, we love our First Lady.
What did you think about the State Of The Union Address? Did anything in particular stand out for you?
Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sometimes things seem hopeless. There seems to be no way to make it in the world in this day and age. The celebrity culture turns people over at an alarming rate. How can we make it in a world that is now spinning faster than ever and with an attention span shorter than ever? I am trying to figure this out as I go too. I am hoping to break the vicious cycle. Remember to stay at your dreams and believe in yourself. The universe will conspire to help you. The possibility of what you want in life will help you get through the days until you actually achieve it.
How do we deal with love? What do you do if your partner seems to be doing inconsiderate things to you all the time but says that you are just misunderstanding of the situation at hand? Do you forgive again and again and hope for better or do you end the relationship that means so much to you? I don’t know the answer to these questions. I was wondering what everyone’s thoughts on the subject are. Please share! We need one another’s help! Have you ever been in love and went through bad times with someone that only led to good?
I know that I may be getting a little bit ahead of myself here, but we’ve already officially been in winter for over a month now. It’s about 55 degrees today! And it feels oddly like a Spring Day. I even hear some birds singing as I write this! I just can’t wait. Can you? What’s your favorite Spring Thing?
What makes you smile and happy inside like you are a kid again? I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours!
