Life holds no promises
as to what will come your way.
You must search for your own ideals
and work towards reaching them.

Be True to Your Dreams and Your Dreams Will Come True

Stay true to all your beliefs and goals.
Stand tall.
Through all life's setbacks and disappointments,
your dreams will come true.

When no one else is with you,
and no one seems to care,
just whisper to yourself,
"I am the controller of my destiny.
It's up to me what comes to pass,
and if I keep my thoughts positive and strong,
my dreams will come true."

When what seem to be impossible obstacles
stand in your way, just think of all the times
you got through yesterday.
There is a place for you in this world.
Stay on your chosen path.
All the power is within you;
be true to what is in your heart.
Be honest within yourself;
if you are, then you cannot fail.

Your dreams will come true.

- Debra Ruegg-Jenkins

When Life Pushes You Down

When life pushes you down, push back!
That’s what you’re here for.
You’re capable, you’re creative, you’re full of life and energy.
You have what it takes to move yourself forward around any obstacle.
Don’t let anything stop you.

Take strength from meeting the challenges, and move ahead.
The struggles you face are just what you need to fulfill your potential for greatness.

A year from now, when you look back at today,
you’ll see that the problem you’re so concerned with right now,
was another valuable lesson waiting to be learned.

Courage/Succuss Inspired

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly… who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never know either victory or defeat."

Teddy Roosevelt

Life is a Miracle

Life is a miracle
don’t let it slip away,
Open your heart to others
give of yourself each day.
See the Beauty in everyone
regardless of where they’ve been,
Some have a difficult journey
and really need a friend.

Share your talents
Listen with your heart.
Do the things you dream about
but don’t have time to start.
Pick a bouquet of flowers
show someone that you care,
Be gracious and forgiving
Life is never fair.

Hold on to your courage
you may need it down the road,
We all have a cross to bear
it could be a heavy load.
If you practice all these things
no matter where you roam,
You may find both sun and rain
but you’ll never feel alone.

Your Heart Will Make Hope

Hope is a higher heart frequency, and as you begin to re-connect with your heart, hope is waiting to show you new possibilities and arrest the downward spiral of grief and loneliness. Listening to the still small voice in your heart will make hope into a reality.

Wild China Time-Lapse - Part 1

The Beauty of a Woman

The beauty of a woman
isn't in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman
must be seen from in her eyes;
Because that's the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman
isn't in a facial mole;
But true beauty in a woman,
is reflected by her soul.

It's the caring that she cares to give,
the passion that she shows;
And the beauty of a woman
with passing years only grows.


On Life's Journey

On life's journey
Faith is nourishment,
Virtuous deeds are a shelter,
Wisdom is the light by day and
Right mindfulness is the protection by night.
If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him;
If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom.

- Buddha

Winners in Life

The real winners in life are the people who look at every situation with an expectation that they can make it work or make it better.

Give Your Best to Relationships

A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her.

The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed. The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised.

That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn’t sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.

Moral of the story:
If you don’t give your hundred percent in a relationship, you’ll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.

This is applicable for any relationship like love, employer-employee relationship etc., Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully.

I believe a little bit of success lies in everyone! Will you be the one to deny that? Or rather be the one who chooses to be guided by it? I hope you choose as I to do the latter!

The Mayonnaise Jar and Two Cups of Coffee

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The
pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes".

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, " I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things in life. Your God, your family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions: things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car.

The sand is everything else: the small stuff.

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean house and fix the disposal.

Take care of the golf balls first; the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

Kaname to Yuuki - I'm in Heaven


Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

- Lao-Tzu

Feel Compassion

You'll discover that real love is millions of miles past falling in love with anyone or anything. When you make that one effort to feel compassion instead of blame or self-blame, the heart opens again and continues opening.

I may not always be by your side,
but my prayers will be with you.
I may not always help you,
but deep inside you know I want to.
I may not always do what you like,
but I will do the best I can.
I may not always understand,
but we can still walk hand in hand.
I may not be the perfect friend,
I may not be the best out there,
but in spite and despite all these,
you can be sure somebody cares!

Grief Will Make a New Person Out of You

Grief is a tidal wave that over takes you,
smashes down upon you with unimaginable force,
sweeps you up into its darkness,
where you tumble and crash against unidentifiable surfaces,
only to be thrown out on an unknown beach, bruised, reshaped...
Grief will make a new person out of you,
if it doesn't kill you in the making.

Let Go

To 'let go' does not mean to stop caring;
it means I can't do it for someone else.

To 'let go' is not to cut myself off;
it is the realisation that
I must not control another.

To 'let go' is not to fix;
but to be supportive.

To 'let go' is not to be in the middle
arranging all the outcomes;
but to allow others to effect their destinies.
To 'let go' is not to be protective;
it is to permit another to face reality.
To 'let go' is not to regret the past;
but to grow and live for the future.

To 'let go' is to fear less
and love more.

Do What You Came to Do

Every decision you make - every decision - is not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes. You begin to see life in a new way. All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do.

Salutation of the Dawn

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

The Symptoms of Inner Peace

Be on the lookout for symptoms of Inner Peace. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to Inner Peace, and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

Some signs and symptoms of inner peace:

A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based
on past experiences.

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

A loss of interest in judging other people.

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.

A loss of interest in conflict.

A loss of the ability to worry (this is a very serious symptom).

Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.

An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others, as well as
the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

<< WARNING ! >>
If you have some or all of the above symptoms - please be advised that your
condition of Inner Peace may be so far advanced as to not be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at
your own risk.

Some Awesome Things


The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Finest Gift

The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.

Inspirational & Motivational Message Life Coach Enzo Mucci

Extreme Attitude Makeover: 3 Steps to Attracting Success

1. Develop gratitude
Without daily recognition of the things for which we are grateful, it is easy to become negative or adopt a self-centered perspective about life (the “It’s all about me!” syndrome). Take the time to remind yourself every day that your life is actually part of a much larger picture and that the way you choose to react to the challenges of life ultimately defines who you are and what you believe.

2. Lead by serving
In giving to others, you learn that they will, in turn, give back to you. During even the most stressful, heart-wrenching periods of your own life, chances are you will benefit by making an effort to help someone else in need. Pull up a chair and lend an ear, or feed a hungry friend. Serving others will remind you that life is a gift of daily, unexpected pleasures available to you—so long as your attitude is open to receiving those pleasures.

3. Face your fears
One of the greatest obstacles to developing and maintaining a hopeful attitude is a fear of the unknown. It is all too easy to become complacent, apathetic and lazy when we choose to live in our own comfort zone in order to avoid this fear.

John Maxwell says “fear is a stepping stone to growth.” The fact is that we can use fear to our advantage. How can you conquer fear? One way is to reprogram your brain’s responses to fear by intentionally putting yourself into new, uncomfortable situations.

- Kay Cross, MEd

At the core of our being
In us all, there is love.

What Actually Love Is

Why do we close our eyes when we sleep? When we cry?
When we imagine? When we kiss?
This is because the most beautiful things in
the world are unseen.

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird
and when we find someone whose weirdness
is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall in
mutual weirdness and call it love.

There are things that we never want to let go of,
people we never want to leave behind,
but keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world,
it’s the beginning of a new life.

Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt,
those who have searched and those who have tried.
For only they can appreciate the importance of the people
who have touched their lives.

A great love? It’s when you shed tears and still
you care for him,
it’s when he ignores you and still you long for him.
It’s when he begins to love another and yet you still smile
and say I’m happy for you.

If love fails, set yourself free,
let your heart spread its wings and fly again.
Remember you may find love and lose it, but when love dies,
you never have to die with it.

The strongest people are not those who always win
but those who stand back up when they fall.

Somehow along the course of life,
you learn about yourself and realize
there should never be regrets,
only a lifelong appreciation of the choices you’ve made.

A true friend understands when you say, I forgot,
waits forever when you say, just a minute,
stays when you say leave me alone,
opens the door even before you knock and says can I come in?

Loving is not how you forget but how you forgive,
not how you listen but how you understand,
not what you see but how you feel,
and not how you let go but how you hold on.

It’s more dangerous to weep inwardly rather than outwardly.
Outward tears can be wiped away while secret tears scar forever.

In love, very rarely do we win
but when love is true, even if you lose,
you still win just for having the tingle of loving someone
more than you love yourself.

There comes a time when we have to stop loving someone
not because that person has stopped loving us
but because we have found out
that they’d be happier if we let go.

It’s best to wait for the one you want than settle for one that’s available.
Best to wait for the one you love than one who is around.
Best to wait for the right one
because life is too short to waste on just someone.

Sometimes the one you love turns out to be the one who hurts you the most,
and sometimes the friend who takes you into his arms
and cries when you cry
turns out to be the love you never knew you wanted.

If you really love someone never let go,
don’t believe that letting go means that you love best,
instead fight for your love,
that’s what true love is.

Laugh to your heart’s content; you cannot go
through life without it.

No Matter What

Walk Away

Walk away Walk away Walk away
From gods who demand thoughtless obedience
Walk away
From pettiness that will make you petty
Walk away
From anger that will eat your insides
Walk away
From abuse which steals your soul
Walk away
Gaining strength with each stride
Walk away
Alone, arm-in-arm or in tandem
Walk away
Yet do not run away in fear
Walk away
You, first among equals
Walk away
Holding head high
Walk away

The Truth Behind the Smiles

I'm a firm believer than anyone can change their life if they are given the proper tools, support and most importantly, the desire to change their life for a better one.

With my blogs I send out messages of hope and inspirations to the world. I trully believe everyone has the right to enjoy all the good things life has to offer each and every one of us.

So I wanted to share this incredible story of a woman who fought back when she had nothing but hope and the will to change her life. Her name is Shirley, and she is my friend and this is her story.

When I read her testimony I was both moved and touch, never before have I read a story of such courage. I asked her if I could post it here and she gave me her permission. For anyone who believes that they can't change their life for a better one read this and you'll probably inspired that you can change it.

"The Truth Behind Sharing Smiles"

For a long time I had to be the person someone else wanted me to be...

The perfect wife, mother, lover, the back bone of the business. I could never just be me. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy being a mother. I just never liked everything else being forced upon me.

My son’s have been so great throughout the whole ordeal and I praise them both for being so awesome. I know they had it rough growing up...

I turned to alcohol and prescription drugs for a long time to rid myself of all the pain I was enduring at a time I was slowly losing focus of the ones that mattered most to me, but I was good at hiding what I was feeling. So, at the time it was all good to me.

A few times I would find myself in the bathroom with a razor blade clinched between my fingers after being beaten so badly that I was unable to see out of one or both eyes, but Joe (the ex) knew there was only one thing he needed to do and that was have my babies stand by the door begging me to come out.

I remember hiding a bottle of Trazadone and a bottle of Absolut Vodka in the cabinet over the sink in the kitchen just waiting for the right moment to end it all.

At night I would slide my hand between the mattress to make sure my knife was where I left it in case I would ever need it.

The hardest part was waking in the morning and having to force a smile on my face.

One day while I was at work I saw a co-worker of mine seated there without a care in the world and I thought to myself why is he so peaceful? I just loved going to work and sitting there because the vibes were so full of great energy.

He never talked and I was fine with that. So I asked someone why he was the way he was. They replied “he is a Buddha man.” I laughed but I grew more curious as the days went by. So I decided to do some research on Buddhism and found myself traveling through the different religions and then, I cam across this book “Tao The Ching: Lao Tzu” and I started to read it. At the time I had no clue what I was reading but for some reason I couldn’t put it down. I’m glad I didn’t because of that one book I see things a lot more clearer.

I started to become a stronger woman as my appreciation for life grew as did everything around me.

My outlook on life started to change and I found myself smiling more and more and I noticed everyone around me started smiling too.

One day I went home and I told Joe it was over and that he was not above me or below me. HaHaHa. He looked back at me like I had lost my mind and started to laugh. I grabbed a few things and moved into the guest room and stopped talking to him. It was hard in the beginning but I kept going back to the many books I had started to read and that made it easier.

As time went on he began to see the change in me and realized that he no longer had any control over me. So, he tried it with the kids and it didn’t work. My boys – now adults, love him as a father but have a hard time liking him as a person.

I met Kaoru. Lets call him my inspirational guide. He has a beautiful soul and posts the most awesome blogs that I looked forward to reading on a daily basis. They always put a smile on my face and because of that I wanted to share it with everyone I came across.

I would go to work and give everyone a new challenge for the day... HaHaHa... They hated it, but I asked them to only do it if they thought it would brighten someone else’s day. I could always tell whom did it and who didn’t cause the one’s that did always came back with a smile.

Now being divorced... my biggest challenge is to not hate the man that harmed me but to thank the man that helped teach me to become a woman I am today. SO, THANK YOU JOE!!!

Now a days I live for today and look forward to tomorrow’s with no regrets... just smiles!!!

Remember to appreciate everyone and everything that surrounds you for that is the Tao.

I didn’t write this blog for pity or to vent. I wrote this blog to open the eye’s of everyone who reads this. This doesn’t even scratch the surface.

I want to thank you for taking the time to read this blog.

P.S. Men and Women and Children can be victims of abuse... that is not the way life should be live. So take this moment to look into your heart and find the place of love, harmony and peace. No person can do such wrong to be treated anything less than equal.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Shirley. May you be well, happy, peaceful and prosperous.

Discover Yourself

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.

Life is A Journey

Birth is a beginning
and death a destination
And life is a journey:

From childhood to maturity
and youth to age;

From innocence to awareness
and ignorance to knowing;

From foolishness to desecration
and then perhaps to wisdom.

From weakness to strength or
from strength to weakness
and often back again;

From health to sickness
and we pray to health again.

From offense to forgiveness
from loneliness to love

from joy to gratitude
from pain to compassion

from grief to understanding
from fear to faith.

From defeat to defeat to defeat
until looking backwards or ahead

We see that victory lies not
at some high point along the way

but in having made the journey
step by step
a sacred pilgrimage.

Birth is a beginning
and death a destination

And life is a journey;

A sacred journey to life everlasting.

The Little Things

It really is the little things
That mean the most of all...
The "let me help you with that" things
That may seem very small
The "I'll be glad to do it" things
That make your cares much lighter,
The "laugh with me, it's funny" things
That make your outlook brighter...

The "never mind the trouble" things,
The "yes, I understand,"
The interest and encouragement
In everything you've planned
It really is the little things,
The friendly word or smile,
That add such happiness to life
And make it more worth while.

Change In A Positive Way

Growth is the result of responding to change in a positive way.

Many of the things in which we face are not fun.
We all go through hardships, trouble and calamity.
This world is full of adversity and difficult situations.

We must look at each adversity as an opportunity for growth.
You may have had a situation in your own life where you thought that it was all a big waste of time, and energy.

You may be questioning why you ever had to go through what you did.
Well, for every adversity that you go through, there is always the seed of equal or greater benefit.

A seed has to be crushed and broken in the ground before it can begin to grow.
If you have been crushed lately by someone or something, it's time to GROW.

It's time to look for a way to respond positively to this situation.
It may not be easy, but it must be done.

Too many people spend too much time wallowing, and not moving on.
Hold your head high. Rise above the situation.

A new day is dawning. Look forward to a better time.
You have done your best. Forget the rest.

This is growth.
We struggle, we learn, we overcome.

Starring Player in Life

One cannot become a starring player in life if one is easily swayed by one's emotions over every little thing. Strength of character lies in performing the drama of life with courage and confidence, practicing self-reflection and self-control under any circumstances.

Jump for Challenges

Instead of avoiding challenges, jump into them.
Beat the heck out of them. Enjoy the game.
If your challenges are too large, do not give up.

Failing makes you tired. Instead, reorganize.
Find more determination, more knowledge and more help.
And then, Just go for it!

In The Sunshine

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow them.

Find Your Passion

If there is no passion in your life, then have you really lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you and you will find great things happen for you, to you and because of you.
