Bread Givers

This weekend...

I been reading this book: Bread Givers by Anzia Yezierska. I had just finished it tonight. It reminded me of the struggles, and the willingness to become something in life. This is the story of an immigrant family as they deal with adversity in life, from starting all over again in a new land to becoming part of their new found home, either by will or driven by the need to survive.

This is my own story in some way. I am also an immigrant. I am trying to find a home in this new land, just as she was trying to find independece. As a woman, I am trying to change this world. I long to see women being recognized for their accomplishments not only for their looks.

Looking back, I can see how far I have walked, but I can also see how far I still need to go. Again, I am once more caught on my own thoughts... Keep looking ahead, never letting your spirit die not matter how strong you have to keep fighting. Keep yourself alive with those Dreams for your future is greater than y…

Walking on Water

My newest movie is :"Walking on Water". This is the experience of two young surfers as they travel through different countries finding faith on a journey of a lifetime.

Very emotional, inspirational, and will definitely remind you of strengthening your faith and how to be more thankful. Knowing that God is our source of power.

Love it!

"HOPE" and looking ahead

This is a Historic Moment.

President Barack H. Obama has become the first Black American President ever in our history. He promised Americans to bring "change and hope." This is done with best of intentions from our President, but

Hope and Change CAN ONLY OCCUR WHEN: We respect the WILL of The People.
The American people should never forget that: It is the right of its citizens to take the necessary steps to approve or disapprove laws and regulations. It is the duty of each American citizen to protect the Nation, the future of our children, and future generations. These are the American ideals and of our Founding Fathers.

President George W. Bush Farewell Address to the Nation

East Room, The White HouseWashington, DCJanuary 15, 20098:01 P.M. EST
THE PRESIDENT:

Fellow citizens: For eight years, it has been my honor to serve as your President. The first decade of this new century has been a period of consequence -- a time set apart. Tonight, with a thankful heart, I have asked for a final opportunity to share some thoughts on the journey that we have traveled together, and the future of our nation.
Five days from now, the world will witness the vitality of American democracy. In a tradition dating back to our founding, the presidency will pass to a successor chosen by you, the American people. Standing on the steps of the Capitol will be a man whose history reflects the enduring promise of our land. This is a moment of hope and pride for our whole nation. And I join all Americans in offering best wishes to President-Elect Obama, his wife Michelle, and their two beautiful girls.
Tonight I am filled with gratitude -- to Vice President Cheney and members of my admin…

Reading...

I am currently reading three psychology books. I love reading them. These books give me so much insight about myself, friends, colleagues, and people in general. The most important factor is that I am exposed to search and look for specific issues in my personal life. I need to change and be transformed, so I can become the person that I want to be - a better human being.

A little about my readings...

Two of these books relate to our interactions to each other and our personal relationships. It is so true, your future is always tied to your past. Our earlier relationships are the foundations upon which we will build all of our future relationships. It is in this phase we learned to internalize positive or negative feelings as well as feelings of dissappoinment or validation. We try to identify ourselves with people, places or events that were part of us in the past. Perhaps, it is because we feel comfortable, but remember not to dwell on unhealthy ones or painful memories for too long.…

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

This is a book that I would recommend anybody to read. It will change your way of thinking, especially in regards to money. It is a great book. You can lend it from your nearest Public Library, buy it from Amazon or buy it from the Richdad.com website as well.

Either way, you will find this book to be your wake up call in your journey for financial freedom. I will recommend for you to also read the CashFlow book or in spanish El cuadrante del flujo del Dinero.

Me gustaria que leyeran los siguientes dos libros. Estos libros ayudaran a expander su vision acerca de las finanzas y como hacer mejores decisiones para invertir, ahorrar, o empezar una empresa. Pueden conseguir estos libros Rich Dad/ Poor Dad en su libreria favorita, o en el website de Richdad.com

De cualquier forma, usted encontrara que estos libros seran como su llamada de madrugada para su libertad financiera. Lea tambien el Libro de CashFlow, o conocido en Espanol como "El Cuadrante de Flujo del Dinero."

Escribanme y…

Sandy Bell Cartoon

I was excited because I finally found my favorite cartoon on-line. Yes, you guess it right. My favorite was Sandybell and the Robinson Family.

My friend Carmela was right, going back in time is the most wonderful treasure of life. I watched the episodes until the Grand Finale. Now, I remember why it was my favorite? Yes, caring for others, and being less self oriented is the name of the game. Reminding us of protecting our friends, being loyal, and keeping our word. Things that seem so distant sometimes in our world today can bring so somuch change in this world. I love the message, and I plan to put my two cents this New Year, I hope you too.
