Wild Fact About Me I have my own mind with an outgoing nature.
My Philosophy I believe we get what we expect to get, what we focus on, in this life. We create our own realities You attract what you feel, reap what you sow. The external world mirrors the internal world.
* Expect/fear poverty, get scarcity and need
* Feel hatred and bigotry, get enemies
* Fear the future, get stress and anxiety and trauma
* Be afraid of pain and illness, get hurt and diseased
* Feel non-judgement, get acceptance
* Expect abundance, get plenty
* Think/feel compassion, get empathy
* Love and you will be loved; judge and you will be judged.
What Gives Me Hope Many of the great achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged people who kept on working.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Working toward a goal removing any member in congress that is currently being prosecuted for anything above a misdemeanor.
