Wild Fact About Me nothing i would want to share LOL
My Philosophy DESIDERATA (anonymous) sums up my philosophy:
Go placidly among the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant. They too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggresive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you will become vain and bitter; for there will always be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your acheivements as well as your plans.
Keep interesed in your own career, however humble. It is a real possesion in the changing fortunes of time. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is. Many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love for in the face of aridity and disenchantment, it is still as perrenial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years. Nurture strength to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of lonliness and fatigue. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. Youe have a right to be here. Whether or not it is clear to you, the world is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. Whatever your aspirations, in the noisly confusion of life, keep peace with your soul. With all of it's sham and drudgery, it is still a beautiful world. Strive to be happy.
What Gives Me Hope My children
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by make protecting children a #1 PRIORITY above all else!!!!!!!!
What/who changed my life and why I suppose many people have changed my life in small ways. One person that comes to mind as I write this is a little old man I knew when I was 18. I was leaving a job I had been at for a while and this man was a courier, when he heard I was leaving, he came in with a small banner wrapped as a scroll. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time, but always held onto it. It turns out be to the most inspirational thing I have ever read (ABOVE). It is funny how it stayed with me through many moves and many "cleaning out" days. Some things are meant to be. There are others that I can recall doing simple acts of kindness for me over the years, just as I have tried to do myself.

Role Models mother, may she rest in peace  
Quotation My own quote. "EVERY SINGLE HUMAN ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH SHOULD WATCH THE MOVIE "PAY IT FORWARD". I really wish i could get this message to everyone and if we all started to "pay it forward", think what the world could be like!?!?!? A more well known phrase might be "simple acts of kindness". Doing something for someone without expecting anything in return.

Music A little bit of everything, depends on my mood  
Movies Pay it Forward, Forrest Gump  
TV Shows I like old reruns, Roseanne, The Golden Girls

Can't Live Without family, coffee, Dove chocolate, my sanity, a break every once in a while
