When stressed or blocked it is wise to make a change so that we don't stay
in that place. Yet, many times we forget some of the simple things that we
can do for ourselves, quickly and easily to bring our inspiration back and
increase our creativity.
1. If you usually type your speech first , hand write them.Nothing compares
to seeing the ink mesh into the paper and display what you created.
2. If you spend too much time at the computer , take a break every hour. Go
for a walk or just sit outside in the sun.Even five minutes in a winter sun
does wonders for a mood and creativity.
3. Flip through magazines or books. Their colors and ideas will give you
sparks and switch your attitude. Blue and green can reduce your stress
levels by 30% or more.
4. Add strong smells to the room. Light scented candles around you, visit
the fruit isle at the grocery store, or go to a store that is heavily
scented. Find an orange or strawberries and smell it. Both will change a
mood or create inspiration. Smells awaken your creativity. Smell strigger
memories and are a great method to rekindle stories from the past.
5. Go see or rent an inspirational movie . Relaxation time is important.
Watch the movie with a notebook and record inspiring phases or ideas that
6. Read a book on the topic that stirs and sparks your creativity. Poetry
can do the same.
7. Look at bold and bright colors for a few minutes. These change your mood.
8. Talk with a friend about your topic to flesh out ideas,titles, and
content. Tape-record the conversation so you don't miss anything. You would
be surprised at how much we think we hear and how we actually do.
9. Write an email to a friend to tell him or her what you want to accomplish
If you are stuck, say so and ask for help.
10. Check in with your vibrational energy and do something to switch it into
high gear. Take a shower. Go for a walk or dance naked in the moonlight.
11. Hire someone to transcribe your recording so that you can stay focused
on the creative end of the speaking.
12. Authentic, flat-out, raw laughter frees the psyche and opens the
13. Find a setting with lots of trees and flowers and feel nature. If the
weather permits, take off your shoes and socks and feel the grass between
your toes. Nature has away of freeing our spirit to let the flow out of our
14. If you are used to practicing your speak in a quiet place, create noise
and practice. You will learn to speak with distractions.
15. Go for a quiet leisurely drive and practice your vowel soutlook expand
your voice range.
Hey, love bird,
You really make
This heart sing!
There's nothing I'd
Rather do than snuggle up
Next to you.
The cold weather may come,
But I'll always be warm
With you beside me,
Because you fill
My heart with the
Joy of true love.
I cherish the day
You flew into my life!
1. Sex is a beauty treatment. Scientific tests find that when women make love they produce amounts of the hormone estrogen, which makes hair shine and skin smooth.
2. Gentle, relaxed lovemaking reduces your chances of suffering dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes. The sweat produced cleanses the pores and makes your skin glow.
3. Lovemaking can burn up those calories you piled on during that romantic dinner.
4. Sex is one of the safest sports you can take up. It stretches and tones up just about every muscle in the body. It's more enjoyable than swimming 20 laps, and you don't need special sneakers!
5. Sex is an instant cure for mild depression. It releases endorphins into the bloodstream, producing a sense of euphoria and leaving you with a feeling of well-being.
6. The more sex you have, the more you will be offered. The sexually active body gives off greater quantities of chemicals called pheromones. These subtle sex perfumes drive the opposite sex crazy!
7. Sex is the safest tranquilizer in the world. IT IS 10 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN VALIUM.
8. Kissing each day will keep the dentist away. Kissing encourages saliva to wash food from the teeth and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay, preventing plaque build-up.
9. Sex actually relieves headaches. A lovemaking session can release the tension that restricts blood vessels in the brain.
10. A lot of lovemaking can unblock a stuffy nose. Sex is a natural antihistamine. It can help combat asthma and hay fever.

More peace and love
Known to mankind.
It is right there,
Waiting for you.
The end of the rainbow,
Yellow, red, green, and blue.
More than riches or gold
Awaits you there.
Open your mind,
Hear your hearts prayer.
Take each special moment
With the one you love.
Value the meaning
Of this gift sent from above.
It is there you will find
At the rainbows end,
Just how rich you really are
From the love you share
Believe In Your Heart
Have you ever, at any one time, had the feeling that life is bad, real bad,
and you wish you were in another situation?
You find life make things difficult for you, work sucks, life sucks,
everything seems to go wrong...
Read the following story... It may change your views about life:
After a conversation with one of my friends, he told me despite taking 2
jobs, he brings back barely above 1K per month, he is happy as he is.
I wonder how he can be as happy as he is considering he has to skimp his
life with the low pay to support a pair of old parents, in-laws, a wife, 2
daughters and the many bills of a household.
He explained that it was through one incident that he saw in India........
that happened a few years ago when he was really feeling low and touring
India after a major setback
He said that right in front of his very eyes he saw an Indian mother chop
off her child's right hand with a chopper. The helplessness in the mother's
eyes, the scream of pain from the innocent 4-year-old child haunted him
You may ask why did the mother do so; had the child been naughty, had the
child's hand been infected??
No, it was done for two simple words- - - TO BEG! The desperate mother
deliberately caused the child to be handicapped so that the child could go
out to the streets to beg.
Taken aback by the scene, he dropped a piece of bread he was eating half-way
And almost instantly, a flock of 5 or 6 children swamped towards this small
piece of bread which was covered with sand, robbing bits from one another.
The natural reaction of hunger. Stricken by the happenings, he instructed
his guide to drive him to the nearest bakery. He arrived at two bakeries and
bought every single loaf of bread he found in the bakeries. The owner was
dumbfounded but willingly sold everything. He spent less than $100 to obtain
about 400 loaves of bread (this is less than $0.25 per loaf) and spent
another $100 to get daily necessities.
Off he went in the truck full of bread into the streets. As he distributed
the bread and necessities to the children (mostly handicapped) and a few
adults, he received cheers and bows from these unfortunate
For the first time in his life he wondered how people can give up their
dignity for a loaf of bread which cost less than $0.25.
He began to tell himself how fortunate he is. How fortunate he is to be able
to have a complete body, have a job, have a family, have the chance to
complain what food is nice and what isn't nice,
Have the chance to be clothed, have the many things that these people in
front of him are deprived
Now I begin to think and feel it, too! Was my life really that bad?
Perhaps... No, I should not feel bad at all... What about you?
Maybe the next time you think you are, think about the child who lost one
hand to beg on the streets.
"Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, it is the realization
of how much you already have."
When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so
long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for
It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also
true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they
just make the most of
Everything that comes along their way.
The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't go
on well in life until you let go of your past failures and Heartaches.

Jewelry of Semi-Precious Stones: Stylish Things of Beauty
Want to make or wear impressive costume jewelry, but running on a tight
budget? Using semi-precious stones is one good way to achieve this. These
stones come in a wide variety and are highly accessible to almost everyone.
Semi-precious stones preserve the effect of sophistication. Many pieces of
jewelry made of these stones are pleasant to look at without seeming opulent
Depending on one's own taste and fashion sense, these gemstones have the
greatest potential to enhance one's personal sense of style.
Some semi-precious stones are also birthstones, which correspond to people's
birth months. Some people believe that wearing stones that correspond with
one's birth month increases one's inner strength. This special trait makes
jewelry made of certain semi-precious birthstones especially useful as gifts
Examples of such birthstones are garnet (January) and aquamarine (March).
Another popular belief is that certain stones have their own unique "powers.
For example, wearing garnet is said to help ease the pain of a bad breakup,
or cause jealousy between lovers. Amethyst is said to protect its wearer
against the ill effects of alcohol, slow down intoxication and prevent
hangovers. Turquoise is said to give emotional strength. Jade has always had
enormous importance in Asian civilization; it is said to have the mystical
power to protect its wearer against nightmares and other psychicattacks.
Quartz is said to be among the most important of the semi-precious stones,
because it calls upon the power of love -- especially the rare rose quartz.
Wearing rose quartz is said to increase one's chances of finding or
maintaining a good romantic relationship.
Some pieces of bead jewelry are also made of semi-precious stones. The
stones are threaded together with cords, making fine webs and accentuating
intricate designs. Jewelry made of semi-precious stones is always popular,
partly because of the beliefs associated with the stones -- but mostly
because they're so pretty and can go well with anything one wears.

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
And a keyboard was on a piano!
Memory was something that you lost with age
And a CD was a bank account
And if you had a corrupted disk
It would hurt when you found out!
Compress was what you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for a while!
Log on was adding wood to a fire
A hard drive was a trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to the commode!
Cutting, you did with a pocket knife,
Pasting, you did with glue.
The Web was where a spider lived
And a virus was the flu!

Okay, we know there are a million such lists out there,but hey, this one commended poll of the sexiest women has to be taken seriously.
10. Teri Hatcher
From Lois & Clark to Desperate Housewives, this increasingly hot woman has always turned television into a land of fantastic desire.
9. Carmen Electra
When she was briefly married to wild-at-heart basketball player Dennis Rodman,the Chicago Bulls complained his heart wasn't in his game. What, Really?
8. Maria Sharapova
She's a gorgeous Russian to die for, and unlike Anna Kournikova, she actually plays good tennis!
7. Jenny McCarthy
Playboy's 1993 Playmate Of The Year, she does the bimbo routine on MTV and films like Scream. But hey, with looks like that, who's complaining?
6. Halle Berry
So she hasn't given us a watchable film ever since she bagged an Oscar. Who cares? With a bod like that, this woman is almost enough reason to sit through Swordfish twice.
5. Keira Knightley
If the criteria for watching her films would be to know Jane Austen inside out, we're heading to the library now. This saucy wench is just making the wait for Pirates Of The Caribbean 2 really long.
4. Jessica Simpson
Even if she massacred Nancy Sinatra's These boots were made for Walkin, this All-American bimbette made sure the video took care of our complaints. These curves are all in place.
3. Jessica Alba
Possibly the most bodalicious woman in films today, Alba broke our hearts by mentioning that she'll never do nudity. We're hoping good sense and an arthouse European director eventually prevail
2. Angelina Jolie
Last year's number one, Madame Jolie seems to have lost brownie points on most sexy women lists after turning relatively tame and shacking
up with fellow stunner Brad Pitt. Those lips still guarantee her room on the podium, of course.
1. Scarlett Johansson
Whoa. This girl just keeps getting hotter. This girl in a brilliant red gown (enough to provoke carpet-walking fashion designers) at the Golden Globes; as a voluptuous siren in Woody Allen's Match Point; and naked for the annual special edition issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

WHAT MY HEART SEES~
Does it really matter
What the eyes see
I have trusted the vision
Too many times
That was in front of me
For what you see with your eyes
It is what my heart sees
That I believe
The eyes of the heart
Sees the truth
Do you know why
The heart is the soul of a person
It cannot lie
When two hearts speak
To each other
A truthfulness is there
Appearances can be false
You see only the shell of someone
As you stare
There will be a moment
When they speak
You will know
The appearance they present
Is only for show
But when the words
Come from a person's heart
These words are seasoned well
There is a warmth in what they say
A truthfulness that you can tell
What my heart sees
Is only you
What my heart says
Is forever true
My heart finds no happiness
With anyone else
It aches for only your touch
You are the one my heart needs
I love you very much
Hear with your heart
Feel with your heart
See with your heart
Follow your heart
