Remember every choice has a consequence. You may kid yourself by convincing yourself that a bad choice feels right. The bad choices are the easiest ones to make. It’s the right choices that feels like work.
You can fool some people but there are others who will always know your true intentions. Often, they are the ones that keep quiet.
Don’t fool yourself, you are not fooling them.
Tonight friends and I engaged in a deep conversation about relationships. Everyone has had relationships that they needed to end for one reason or another. After listening to many different stories I came up with a conclusion. If you see a quality that you hate to love about yourself inside someone else maybe it’s best you choose to let that person go before you become the worst that you could be.
I am not about to talk politics. I don’t particularly care to engage in a topic that would generate such heat. However, something annoys me to no end. Celebrities using their platforms to influence the public to vote one way or the other makes me want to puke. So and so endorses Obama or The Whatchamacalits decided to endorse McCain. Why does someone think that because they sing or act their opinions matter more than the rest of ours? If we were a fan of theirs, we would surely vote the way they do because their opinion must be the right one.
A writer is taught not to preach, it is a turn off to the reader. I think celebrities should be taught the same, discretion is much more attractive. Once you stand on one platform or the other you isolate yourselves from a large group of people (whether it be democrats or republicans), a month from now we will have a new president regardless.
There is a quote I love by William Butler Yeats-All empty souls tend toward extreme opinions. I am not saying celebrities have souls that are empty (there are many that do extreme good) but talk is cheap and it is usually the ones that are talking the loudest that do the least.
It’s like seeing a beautiful woman or man and having this idea of who they must be, then all of the sudden something they say ruins the first impression. You never see them the way you once did.

When I need a break from the kiddo’s and a little time away from writing I visit a few of my favorite sites. This week I am listing thirteen sites I visit currently or have in the past. Do you have any favorites?
1… Dream Moods.com (I have mentioned many times on my blog that I frequent this site. I love interpreting my dreams and find this site very helpful.)
2… Thesaurus.com (You can’t be a writer without a thesaurus)
3… Colorgenics (If you have never tried colorgenics make sure after reading this you do. It is amazingly accurate.)
4… USA Today Daily Crossword (I love Crossword puzzles and this one is my favorite to do)
5…_411.com (It’s a quick way to look up a phone number. It even offers reverse phone look up-for those days you see an unfamiliar number on your caller id)
6… Pandora Radio (A great free music site. You can make your own library of music)
