Monday Already

Monday already????...I don't care much for Mondays or mean people!  Mean people just burst my happiness bubble and I don't like it. After two (if we are  lucky) days off we have to go back to work :( Talk about a vibe killer. Just thinking about work my blood pressure starts rising. I have worked with people in the past that are grown up bullies. Nice to you in your face and put you down behind your back. Now don't get me wrong I know to ignore them there will be people like that anywhere you work at or go to school or the gym or mall wherever with. "Those" kind of people will always exist.
Bad apples in the apple of life.It just sucks even worse when you have several of them in a group because they mob up against people they perceive to be weak. As if it will make them any better. It really bothered me though when I was younger and it would be older much older people doing it and I see why now. Not every matures. Sucks for those of us that have to deal with them. Just a couple of the reasons they are unpleasant is because they are Busy (yes with a CAPITAL B) because most people put off things till Monday!
And apparently do not realize that other people do as well and then complain when they have to wait on hold. I don't like you to have to wait either but for the best getting through advice I can give you is handle your business on days of the week other then Monday. Thursday perhaps? But nonetheless Mondays will not being going away anytime soon so we might as well learn to dance in the rain. I have always been an entrepreneur and I am working towards one day being able to work completely from home on a schedule I design. Then I will love Mondays as much as Saturdays. I dream about how nice that will be.
Monday Already
1. Have a good attitude.
2.Get as much sleep the night before if at all possible. This helps with the above step as well.
3. If you can afford it get yourself a treat such as a coffee or breakfast on the way to cheer you up.
4. Ignore what's going on around you and focus on what you are their to do. Do the best job that you can.

Kia K900

Kia K900
So I saw the commercial for this car this morning and it spoke to me. Challenge the luxury you know. Well Kia I am up to that challange! But I haven't rid in that many luxury cars but I have rode in quite a few non luxury cars so I could be a good judger. I went to their website to check them out. 
So how much are they? Well I have decided to leave that till the end and first let's go over just some of it's features:
1. 17 speaker surround sound
2. Available blind spot detection
3. Panoramic tilt sliding sunroof
4. LED lights
5. Locking fuel door
6. 19 inch Alloy wheels Chrome finish
7. SiriusXM Satellite Radio
8. Heated front seats
9. Heated steering will
10. Optional surround view mirrors
Comparable to Lexus, BMW, Audi
Starting at around 60,000 add on VIP Package + 6,000
I certainly will not object if someone wants to buy me one ;)
Start building yours now
Kia makes other great cars as well. Have you seen there Forte? The blue colors are nice. I never looked into these vehicles before and wish I had because I would of started saving for one a long time ago. I love the safety features and stylish looks these cars have and they have several different options to choose from.
The names of some of their other vehicles are the
Cadenza, Rio, Optima, Soul, Sedona, Sorento and the Sportage.
You have probably seen some of their commercials before like seen the one for the Kia Soul with dancing hamsters.
I would proudly drive any of these. My favorite part about Kia's is that they are very well made and they are affordable versions of other nice cars so more people can afford to buy one.
This makes me want to own one all the more because I support companies like that. There is likely a Kia dealership in your area. You should go take a test drive if you are in the market for a new vehicle. 
If buying a car isn't in your near future be sure and keep these beauties in mind for when you do. Driving a safe dependable car can sure contribute to peace of mind you just don't want to buy something you can't afford because that will cause stress. 

Relationship Issues

Relationship issues are unpleasant. Breakups suck. If you were the one broken up with it can feel like a piece of your body is missing. You can get over a relationship of any kind. It will take time but you can be whole again. Even if you where the one who broke things off it still hurts. Especially if you where together for a long time. You have to get used to a new way of living and it's not easy. I have been there and it sucks. Trust me this feeling is only temporary. 
There are many many other people in the world and one of them will be a better match for you. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you. If they truly loved you nothing could make them leave. You will live and thrive without them. You get used to being with someone often and change is hard. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go. But you will get over it. The key is to stay as positive as you can. Read positive stories, quotes whatever your particular interest is. This website will be filled with links to content I have hand picked that lift me up when I am feeling down. And it is a full time job being happy. So be sure and get your positive fix on a daily basic. It will eventually become addicting.  
Enjoy life. Always choose happiness over relationship issues. Don't let your thoughts be all about relationship issues. Work on improving yourself during this time. The healthier you are mentally your relationships will be stronger. 
I love the fact that I will be able to enrich peoples lives by pointing them in the right direction. The internet is a big place and I will do my best to help you navigate it. I went thru a break up a year ago and read everything I could get my hands on about how other people got over breakups and that helped a great deal as well as passing time and getting out and meeting other people. Even when it feels like the last thing you want to do call up a friend or log on to my site and follow the links and get happier now.
Anytime relationships end it is completely normal to be sad. Use this time to better yourself. Want to learn a new subject? Teach yourself with free classes you can find online.
Life is so short try not to waste time moping around and being sad about relationship issues. Start improving you. Learn from the relationship. Where they a jerk who didn't deserve you anyway? Most likely. Or is there something you need to change about yourself? Don't get offended. There is nothing wrong with making positive changes. No matter what age you are. One thing that tremendously helped me was learning how to be content alone. A key to disappointment is trying to please other people and live up to their standards. It will only cause you grief. Take care of yourself and you will be happier healthier and more content.  
I remember what it is like to have this awful feeling. In fact I could not get out of bed for a week and then I slowly came around. I do not ever want to let any other human being on this earth cause me to feel that way again. People are just people. What gives them the right to be the judge of us? If you are getting that feeling more oft then naught you seriously should get out of the relationship. Find someone that has more of the same interests as you or respects yours at least. I'm never happy unless I am growing whether it be smarter, richer, healthier, skinnier I cannot stop and if someone or something stands in that way I am miserable. If your like me in that regard we will get along great because I am going to give you tips about how to use the web to find information and credible information at that. Stay away from spammy sites. Visit only legitimate sites. If it sounds way to good to be true it mostly likely is. Everyone is always trying to come up with the latest get rich quick scheme and trust me if getting rich quick was as easy as they say it is then why isn't everyone rich? When you buy someones product they earn a percentage and then they expect you to do the same thing. I don't know about you but I certainly don't want to earn money by selling people useless information that gets sold and sold again. Just be careful and if you don't understand something fully research it prior to giving the site any of your personal information. Older people can use the internet safely if they have a loved one of friend to check up on them occasionally:) It's just a different age now and younger people seem to learn catch on to new technology quicker in most cases. At any rate get over that breakup now and let's start helping people. 
Let relationship issues be a stepping stone to a better you. The healthier you are mentally, physically, emotionally the more chances your next relationship will work out. Spend some time alone during this time. Learn to enjoy your own company. It is very healthy because we cannot always be around other people. and remember they also need their own hobbies, interests and alone time. Don't take it personal.

Are you always worried that your current relationship will soon end? Don't be. Worst case scenario is they leave you right? Well if so you can find someone new. Learn to take care of and provide for yourself and you won't need to depend on anyone. Yes, Being with someone can be incredibly rewarding but you never want to lose your own identity to please someone else. Learn to be the strongest you that you can so that no situation can break you.

Ladies and gentlemen, If your partner cheats on you and does amazing things for their new fling don't let it bother you. Remember how they treated you in the beginning? Or even if they didn't they have after all been with you so of course they learned how to treat their new partner better. But who cares you know what they will turn into and trust they will get the same as you did unless they are someone that let's people walk all over them or they are indeed a saint. But what are the odds of that? THERE ARE MANY MORE FISH IN THE SEA OUT THERE! And partners that don't cheat. You always have the opportunity to start a new relationship. Who would want a cheater anyways? Yes, I KNOW how bad it hurts I have been through it and I have promised I would be a saint if they stayed with me...Ugh, that is repulsive behavior and it doesn't belong in any classy person's yes I said classy person that's what you are. Now it's time to start acting like one. To get yourself into the best condition to meet someone new (remember the one who does deserve everything you have to offer) you will need to start eating better, finding new ways to get as much exercise as possible during the day. 
If you like to exercise their are free or no cost options such as exercise videos online or on your on demand if you have cable. Or go to your local school and walk the track. Whatever is most comfortable to you is what you should do. Just make sure you do something. During my last painful break up I was searching for books on people going thru similar situations to see how they dealt and while it didn't cure me it did help me and know what? I eventually got over the sucker! His loss for losing such an amazing lady as myself:) I'm not perfect but who is? Start taking care of yourself, save money, lose weight and get fit. All of these things are closely in your grasp. The Internet is a virtual library. You can literally teach yourself anything online including building relationships of any type.
Or how about staying single? Nothing wrong with that. Or date just don't make any commitments. 

Summer Quotes

Summer Quotes
Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.
Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....

Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea--whether it is to sail or to watch it--we are going back from whence we came."
 John F. Kennedy
Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. Always keep your body filled with light and heat. Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment.

The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea.

I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.
The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
Jacques Cousteau
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach--waiting for a gift from the sea.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think
Robert Henri
When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Summer Quotes

Avoiding Negative Nancy

Avoiding Negative Nancy. AKA Debbie Downer: The worst type of people for people with depression to be around. They are negative and will kill your vibe. You want your vibe to be positive so you can heal and feel better. You know the type when your around them they are very draining.
Sometimes we have no choice to be around these type of people because you work with them or say there one of your family members. Seriously though, when you must be around them here are some tips.
  • Try to make the encounter as brief as possible.
  • Remain Calm.
  • Remain Positive. Yes, I know it is hard but trust me it will make things easier in the long run.
  • Do the best you can with what you have to work with.
  • Pray.
  • Smile
  • Think happy thoughts. Need some inspiration? Check out Pinterest. Beware it is addicting as can be if you like that kind of thing as much as I do.
So he or she had (or has) you in their grip huh? Just remember you are only human and humans are not perfect. Just strive to do things you enjoy and always have things to look forward to.
Even if it is just a dinner date with a friend. If you can't afford to go out then eat at home. Meanwhile stay calm (never let them see they got to you) and hold your tongue best as you can and hopefully the encounter will be brief.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man.  All things are connected.  Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. 
Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce
Determining which pet is right for you
If you get a pet that is difficult to take care of it will be more stress then therapy. If you live in an apartment or are elderly maybe an older cat or small dog. Hint get a dog who's activity level is closer to yours. Big dogs need to be walked or have a big backyard to run around in. And big dogs also make bigger messes so make sure you are ready and willing to clean up after them. Also keep this in mind when buying a pet as a gift for someone. If they are not able to care for the animal it may end up in a shelter or worse. Also make sure your pet gets the immunizations that it needs as well as regular checkups. If you do not want puppies or kittens or whatever offspring your animal has make sure you get them spayed or neutered.  
Animal quotes

Rumi Quotes

Rumi was born in 1207 and died in 1273
Come, whoever you are! Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving. This is not a caravan of despair. It doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your vow a thousand times, still and yet again come!
As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner.
Silence is the language of God, 
all else is poor translation
The wound is the place where the Light enters you
You and I will be together
till the universe dissolves”
I love my friends neither with
my heart nor with my mind.
Just in case heart might stop, Mind can forget.
I love them with my soul.
Soul never stops or forgets.
Raise your words, not voice. It is rain which grows flowers, not thunder.
Don’t worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?
Although the road is never ending
, Take a step and keep walking,
 Do not look fearfully into the distance.
I belong to no religion. 
My religion is love.
Every heart is my temple
I will soothe you and heal you, 
I will bring you Roses. 
I too have been covered with thorns.
The alchemy of a changing life is the only truth.
Set your life on fire seek those who fan your flames
I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a thousand silent ways.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief, and unspeakable love.
You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.
You were born with potential. 
You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. 
You were born with wings. 
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. 
You have wings. 
Learn to use them and fly.
Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.
Why are you so enchanted by this world, when a mine of gold lies within you?
Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.
