Every Now and Then…

E N’s quotes to ponder:

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” —Bob Marley



A Writer’s Life

Quote Posted on Updated on

My Legacy Lives On Sitting at my computer desk, staring at the screen, and typing the story of my life – delivering my message to the world. Only to wonder when I’m finished, if anyone is going to read it. Will they take heed to the warnings and recommendations? Or will my story just sit on the shelf in bookstores collecting dust?

Defamation lawsuit- So what’s happening with Jordan Belfort?

Quote Posted on Updated on

Since being convicted in 2004, for defrauding clients out of $200 million, Belfort has reinvented himself as a “reputable entrepreneur”, working with client’s like Delta and Virgin Airlines. When interviewed by Nick Harding of the Independent, Belfort states “he still teaches his “Straight Line” selling technique; a set of pre-determined steps from first contact to closing a deal, in his seminars that pays him close to $30,000 an hour.”  That’s not a typo $30,000 an hour, what some employees make in a year.

I’m glad to hear that he’s turned over a new leaf, although at the time, he couldn’t have cared less about the people he was swindling. Isn’t it a shame that greed drives people to prey on those who fall for the glitz and glamour? I suppose the ones taken for their life savings will be more diligent in the future.

Here’s my tip for today: Be a wise consumer, ask around for recommendations for a Financial Advisor, and if they tell you something that seems to good to be true, it probably is. Ask for a prospectus before jumping on the bandwagon, take your time to investigate. Trust your gut instinct, and you won’t go wrong.

Peace and Prosperity,
