"Not voting IS voting!"

Listen to the TedTalks by Eric Liu on the importance of voting to

make a change in any country we live in and call it home.  

It's not the country that makes people great, it's the people that make a country great!

"Most of the trouble in the world is caused by people wanting to be important."

A quote that sums up most of the issues we deal with whether at the macro or micro level.

Unfortunately, one person's ego can destroy many lives.  

Ego encourages us to be selfish in order to fulfill our needs.  Need of power, money, beauty, or attention.

I call those people "drunk drivers."

Drunk drivers act mindlessly hurting not only others but also themselves.

To me, a drunk person is not a bad person, a drunk person is a lost person who needs a guide.

Be a guide.

and meet the amazing, hardworking stylists!

I have not come across a picture that truly speaks a thousand words in a while!  

This is by far my favorite picture capturing the beauty of true love, friendship, and respect.

When two great minds meet, a relationship becomes an investment.  

It shelters us, fills our needs, supports us, drives us forward,

and enables us to fulfill the purpose of humanity by

building and raising a community together before we say good-bye to the world.


What does a relationship mean to you?



I recently tried a delicious, nutritious, and colorful drink called Pitaya Colada at Birdie in Costa Mesa, CA.

Pitaya, also known as Dragon Fruit, is a superfruit indigenous to Central and South America

that is now grown all over the world. It’s rich in Magnesium, Iron, Fiber, Antioxidants, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin C!

How to Become Successful

I love this quote!  

Most of us get so lost in keeping up with the Kardashians and all the other reality shows

or simply our friends and family that we start living to make others happy at our own cost.  

By the time it occurs to us that that is not what life is about, it usually is too late.  

But we can always start by cleaning out the clutter in our mind and renovating it with wisdom.  

Surrounding ourselves by mentors, books, nature or anything that feeds our mind and soul shifts our focus

and revitalizes us.


The way we think is the way we live.
The way we live determines the quality of our life.  As they say‚Ķ start at home.
Start early!
