How I came to write my first book

First I was just want to say I was diagnosed with a bone disease in 1999 work related then had 3 car accidents that made it all worse,But can’t let that stop life from happening right?So time in and time out I’ve tried working different types of jobs that can finally snuggle with and climb the ladders, yet wheeled out on a stretcher is where I’d end up after a good month in a 1/2, or I end up at the hospital with a release back to full duty… No lifting,bending,stooping sitting etc. Ok now the job like well whenever you get released back to full duty let us know, which be never once my Dr see what all I have really going on. Now I’m between a rock and a hard place seeing I really can’t do any hard labor.

I love working,I was always loved at all my jobs,and I like to work hard. But all this don’t matter when you can’t even do anything about it. Well that wasn’t so true seeing I had a profession under my belt that I hadn’t touched in years. I use to write poetry, but due to it not bringing in any income & I had no idea how to get paid from it even when I found you can get paid, but in 1996 when I was writing I didn’t even care about the money I just loved sending it to and getting the small recognitions,little certificates.I was missing out on so much forcing myself to do all these things I cared nothing about except nursing and that was still out the door.
Long story short, I already had writing under my belt. I had met a guy name Carlos between this time that had started helping me financially and while I was seeking my goals of what I wanted to really do, I knew it was writing but just sitting the the house writing poetry and music it set off a bell that I wanted more.

while doing my poetry I felt the sense to write some music, During this time I’m still searching for ways to get paid,I saw a ad online to submit your poetry and they will make it music, wow! Now I submit my poetry and my songs I wrote and they tell me they liked and can I send one more. So of course I send it to them,now I’m thinking to myself this is unreal,this not true, a week later I get a contract in the mail from majestic records. Now I’m so shocked I had no clue what to do now because they wanted $385. For making the CD’S They had there singers to sing my lyrics and made cds. Now I’m like stuck,they are going to send me 10cds for the $385 I don’t even have $100.00. Now I move on after a while I still have the contract as long as I send the money which I was totally in with if I could have just been able to see how true it was. Of course I had gotten copy writes and all too all my things I put out there. Still haven’t sent the money or got my cds but one day soon.

Now that was not the end of my career seeking journey because I still felt empty, even doing what I love I still felt like I was missing something,and I was… I asked Carlos to bring me some paint & drawing utensils,He got me the easel all the paint I wanted,the whole art set up & drawing art pencils,everything I needed to be a artist. I told him I wanted to paint and draw now. Without another word, he took me to Michaels arts and craft store to get the items in question, the whole while he said nothing, he was happy to see me doing constructive thing so he must just was wondering where all this was going to lead up to because he never complained. Mow I have my poetry & music, and now about to paint and draw. What I never knew this whole while, is I had no clue these were steps to success for me, well it haven't yet but I do feel it in these broken bones lol. Now the good part of this story was after the poetry & song writing then the drawing & painting. I was still missing the point of it all. I had one more request from carlos, can you but me some more paper and pencils. Now he looking at me and asks, what you mean?

I say now I know, I'm ready to write a book, put my drawings & paintings,poems & songs in it! Now he looks at me and say's wow! You are so multi-talented. I was wondering what all this was leading to, at least it all didn't go to waste. And that's how I got the book "MY LIFE AT A GLANCE"(The good,bad & the ugly) the story of my life…fhtukgw_d1636142005.jpg

It’s just me: <img src="; alt="img_20180514_151116388331528.jpg" width="2250" height="3000" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-100"/

Check this out: ’12 Little Known Laws Of Karma That Will Change Your Life’

Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. One can think of karma as the spiritual equivalent of Newton’s Law of Motion. “For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction.” Basically, when we exhibit a negative force in thought, word, or action, that negative energy will come back to us.

1. The Great Law
“As you sow, so shall you reap.” This is also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect.”
If what we want is happiness, peace, love, and friendship, then we should BE happy, peaceful, loving and a true friend.
Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us.
2. The Law of Creation
Life doesn’t just happen. It requires our participation.
We are one with the Universe, both inside and out.
Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state.
Be yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have in your life.
3. The Law of Humility
You can’t change something if you refuse to accept it.
If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to benegative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.
4. The Law of Growth
“Wherever you go, there you are.”
For us to grow in Spirit, it is we who must change, and not the people, places or things around us.
The only given we have in our lives is ourselves, and that is the only factor we have control over.
When we change who and what we are within our hearts, our lives follow suit and change too.
5. The Law of Responsibility
Whenever there is something wrong in my life, there is something wrong in me.
We mirror what surrounds us, and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth.
We must take responsibility for what is in our life.
6. The Law of Connection
Even if something we do seems inconsequential, it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected.
Each step leads to the next step, and so forth and so on.
Someone must do the initial work to get a job done.
Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance, as they were both needed to accomplish the task.
Past, Present and Future are all connected.
7. The Law of Focus
You cannot think of two things at the same time.
Because of this, when our focus is on Spiritual Values, it is impossible for us to have lower thoughts such as greed or anger.
8. The Law of Giving and Hospitality
If you believe something to be true, then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that particular truth.
Here is where we put what we CLAIM that we have learned into actual PRACTICE.
9. The Law of Here and Now
Looking backward to examine what was or forward to worry about the future prevents us from being totally in the here and now.
Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, and old dreams prevent us from having new ones.
10. The Law of Change
History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.
11. The Law of Patience and Reward
All rewards require initial toil.
Rewards of lasting value require patient and persistent toil.
True joy comes from doing what we’re suppose to be doing, and knowing that the reward will come in its own time.
12. The Law of Significance and Inspiration
You get back from something whatever you have put into it.
The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.
Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the Whole.
Lackluster contributions have no impact on the Whole, nor do they work to diminish it.
Loving contributions bring life to, and inspire, the Whole.

It’s ok to be different

My entire life I always noticed myself as being different. Elementary I was different, I never did what other kids did. I maybe had two friends I rarely even talked to them, I just smiled and they talked… They ask me a question I would shyly answer with my head down. Recess, I would sit off by myself not playing with any of the kids & lunch was a long boring lunch,alone. My mom & grandma was my best friends.

Now the good thing about being different is that there is nobody like you! You’re unique because you are different… That’s what makes you who you are. The things YOU do,the things YOU say & how you say it… You will never be like anyone else.

Your happiness depends on you,so instead of changing yourself into another person for the world. Everyone going the same way,you choose your own route, you go a different way… Because you’re different! People may call you crazy because you are different,they may look at you as oddly, but you are just different.

You listen to different music because you’re not like others, you choose your own thoughts about situations… Even if the entire room agrees on one thing and you don’t! That’s because you are different and not like others.

They wonder why I never stress about money, how can you help all those people, and want nothing from it? My answer it’s not about the money… Why you doing all that and not getting paid for it? Me: money ain’t everything. I know it takes money to do nearly everything in the world. But if I can build a huge building and supply everything in it and bring all the homeless and let them do whatever talent they have with the supplies provided.That’s s a goal I have for my life to do before I leave this earth. To me it’s all about helping others. THAT’S WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT! They say it’ll never work, but I tell them, I’m different! I know it’s people that you JUST SHOULD AND CAN GIVE A REAL CHANCE.
