SHARING SOME LOVING

This is a common expression of human emotion.

This is the way it should be particularly at these tumultuous times we currently live in.

In spite of differences, different ideologies and opinions, the respect and love is there.

Let’s learn something from this action.

Let’s join together.

Let’s get along with each other.

Sick Personal Computer …. Taking to Store Tomorrow! 


~~July 8, 2016~~

COMPUTER ISSUES

Disconnecting from this grid

It’s been a while that my computer has been making this noise as if “the gears were stuck”.

A wise, computer savvy friend checked it this weekend & updated it to Windows 10. I used it  today …. until now.

When I came over, the screen was totally dark. I tried basic steps. Turned it off & back on.

No response!

I called my friend,  who has been researching on the “noise” and it seems it could be the hard drive.

I used it today until now.

Maybe it’s the best. All that’s been going on these last few days have kept me from blogging as usual.

Right now, I’m on my cell.

If you miss me, you know why.

I’ll take it to store tomorrow to have it checked out.

I’m surprised at how calm I am about this.

I want to make sure that pictures & documents can be recovered.

Could it be time to get a new one?

Ta-ta!! Laters …. Have a good one!

JAMES TODD

Today we need this.

Today we need soothing of our souls.

Take a breather, go “inside”, reflect and enjoy this music.

Thanks to my blogging friend, Genie, who directed me to this musical piece.

Cellist James Todd was born into a musical family in Denver, CO.

His great-grandfather was a cellist and his grandfather a violinist and conductor.

At the age of five, he played mandolin in a group led by his siblings.

He began piano lessons in the second grade and switched to cello in the fourth grade. In high school, he was a member of Denver’s All-City Orchestra every year.

He began college at the University of Denver, but transferred after a year to Metropolitan State College of Denver. While studying business education there, he was the principal cellist in the orchestra and the chamber ensemble.

He graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. degree in business, but went on to a career in music that found him playing with the Denver Symphony and many visiting musicians.

Something to think about …. “Earth versus Human … “!!

EARTH PRESERVATION & SELF AWARENESS

Two men arguing loudly on the street

One is debating on Earth’s natural resources and the other is exaggerating on the need for oil, fossil fuels and other resources taken from Earth.

All out basic resources are inherently limited.

As human populations continue to expand and finite resources are divided among increasing numbers of people, it will become more and more difficult to maintain prosperity and a quality of life and personal freedoms will decline.

But overall, we are winning.

Thank you, Mari ….

Protecting the environment isn’t a “liberal” idea; it’s everybody’s business.

Liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, black, white, rich, poor, employed, unemployed …. you get the idea.

The environment provides life support for us all, and if we fail to recognize that, we are truly doomed as a civilization.

Truth #1

The Earth’s resources are limited.

Truth #2

Each person living in modern civilization consumes some amount of the Earth’s limited resources.

Truth #3

Humans are altering the environment

Truth #4

Humans really like to have babies

GoldSwirl

Can humanity save itself?

Saving human civilization from its own ignorance is no easy task. It will require intelligent, forward-thinking business leaders who see the long-term picture and who genuinely care about the future.

Yet sadly, there is no such thing.

Business leaders are, by definition, focused on the next fiscal quarter, not the next century. They will ALWAYS mortgage our collective future to increase their immediate profits.

~The human impact on this Earth~

~Uploaded on Mar 28, 2011~

Just as a disclaimer, I made this video when I was 13. We all live in such a beautiful world, and humans really are beautiful souls with such great potential, we just have to reawaken to who we are, ridding ourselves of ignorance. The more truth we see, the more we can do to change our ways into more productive habits. And it really all does begin with caring. First about ourselves, then other people, then the world. Even though we cannot take on the responsibility of the entire earth, we can take personal responsibility; pledge to our Earth, and everything on it.

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Un año que viene y otro que se va!! 

“One year comes as another year leaves”

(literal translation of a Puerto Rican saying)

It’s New Year’s Eve now.

There are only a few hours left before a new year is ushered in.

It always amazes me how fast time flies when we are all grown up.

All of us at “It Is What It Is” want to wish you and yours only the best for this coming year.

We thank you, from the deepest recesses of our heart, for stopping by and interacting with us. Each and every comment is appreciated, valued and acted upon, if needed.

We are here, open to your visits and suggestions, willing to offer the best of ourselves and truly hoping that what we do may make even the smallest “dent’ in your lives.

May only good fortune and good tidings come your way.

Have a very Happy New Year!!

We’ll see you again sometime in 2016!!

NEW YEAR’S REFLECTIONS

Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.

Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.

And when we ponder those who do,
we immediately think of you.

Thanks for being one of the reasons we’ll have a Happy New Year!

Thoughts for today, #207 …. “A Woman’s Worth”!!


Woman

~~August 6, 2015~~ 

A WOMAN’S WORTH

She gave life. She is a wife.
She is a mother and she is a friend.
She is a sister a survivor to the end.

Appreciate her, we don’t dare.
Ask her worries, we don’t care.
Wipe away her tears, they are invisible as air.

She works cooks and clean.
She laughs, helps comfort, and hides her pain.
When you struggle she pulls you through

All this is she and what do we do?

Complain and create a mess.
Provide stress and leave her feeling depressed.
Push her away and ignore her advice.
Tell her she is nothing without thinking twice.

She was raped tortured and abused.
Told she was nothing and would always be used just for pleasure forget her pain.

She swallows her pride, put her feelings aside.
Does as you need in order for you to be free.
Ignores your ignorance and tolerates your flaws.
You call her Bitch, Slut, Hoe and Tramp
She answers with pride dignity and a complete loss of self.
You call her nothing.

I call her Strong, Smart, Sensual, Caring, Giving, Surviving, Tolerant and powerful ….

I call her WOMAN!
