Making an easy choice often happens quickly, while more difficult decisions take longer to mull. Researchers from the University of Oxford have delved into the science behind this trade-off and determined two parts of the brain that are responsible for how quickly, and accurately, we make decisions. A new study published in eLife has determined that… Continue reading The Brain Science Of How You Make Decisions

Journaling To Help Organize Your Life

Hello Readers,

I hope you are have a wonderful day and is chalking up some sun and clean air. It’s a beautiful day here in New Jersey!  The topic for this article is about how journaling can help you organize your life.

I’ve just completed a Life Coaching course and is looking forward to using the tools  for the work I already do as a Nurse and working privately with others who are looking for a life Coach.
In many ways, we all are a life coach to somebody-be it your children, a friend or co-worker. The support of a Personal Life Coach can be very beneficial to

to those individuals who need one. That one-on-one is the special time to focus on a problem.
This is why I believe journaling is so important to you to get started.
After you have bought your journal, pens, and pencils, just remember to first identify your problem and write down what you can do about it. If it’s more than one problem, write them all down and attack the most pressing one or one that need your immediate attention and focus on that one.

Life can be overwhelming and it is no use to stress over it. Do a little at a time and go on to the next time.
Everyday, look at your journal book and check off what you have accomplished. Go out and celebrate your accomplishments and start on the second problem.
One thing you want to remember,

You Can Do It!

is not to go back into old habits of letting the problem escalate again. So check off still your first problem a section if you are maintaining the solution to the old problem.

By focusing on the solution, you will achieve your goals.
Be positive, maintain good health, and know that you can beat this problem, no matter what it is.
Look for resources that can help you. Look for someone, who might have an almost identical situation and support each other in overcoming  the issue. Also, don’t be afraid to seek professional help. Remember, you are not alone and should not feel bad because you are in this situation. Now is the time for growth and development for Your life.   Take the little steps to get it done!

Remember, you are not alone and you can succeed in solving your issues. 

So make Journaling  a big part of your life, for a better one for sure!

life and sometimes find solutions or answers to a specific problem or concern.

Journaling also help you to keep organize.  Do reward yourself of all  you have accomplished for the day, week or month.

Keeping up with your life by journaling can reward you financially ,if you write down how you are spending your money and what you can do to save more.

The other day, I was at the Hobby Lobby Shop with my granddaughter. She is an awesome artist and works in many mediums.  I had bought her some very special art pens, her art teacher had uses in their art class,  that was a bit pricey and some other art supplies that I needed for myself.   I’ve just started going to this store and just love that they have a lot of products to inspire the creative mind.   I asked the lady  at the register if I needed a membership to get saving or could I check to see if they have coupons. She said, no they don’t have memberships but, yes, that she wait for me to google their store and get their coupon.  My granddaughter got it right away and we used it as well letting the lady I let go ahead of us,  use the coupon as well. We both saved $10.00 on our purchases.  It was amazing! This is an example of  why writing and journaling  what is important to you and to have those notes as a reminder.

You can make a special section of your journal a section just for the coupons you should use for the day and plan how to use coupons for future shopping.

I was impressed to hear Al Roker  of the Today show mention this morning, how he is going to make  journaling a part of his  New Year resolution .  Writing can be a joy to not only you but to others.  We all need to write more and to write letters to others.  I love the concept of those love notes you would place somewhere for your husband or cute inspirational notes you would put in you child’s lunch box.  Believe me, that is where the real love is. It’s in the Pen and paper, ya’ll.   (my southern instincts are starting to come back).  Maybe, we got this whole love thing wrong-to know that words can paint a beautiful picture of deep emotion, is a WOW!

I remember the day when pen pals was so popular.  Now, what Happened to that!

Happy New Year to everyone and Happy Journaling!  Write somebody!  Write Me!  And put some of that coupon savings in a little coin bank!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS and Well Wishes To All


Happy Holidays to You and Your Family, Friends and Associates!

Hello Everyone,
I want to thank you for being a part of my network here. I’m still building the website and is also building another from another domain.
Visit there when you can. It is I welcome you! That website is very different in that it will hit issues that no one would think to writing about.
I want to wish you the best holidays for the season and I want to thank you again for all you have done to support my blogs, ebay stores, and other products I sell.
Now  is a good time to support all of the places you have respect and know will help other people. St. Jude Hospital, The Carter Foundation, NAN organization, Red Cross, are some of the organizations I contribute to. That includes the Salvation Army-Do look for that red bucket.
I volunteered for the Women’s Shelter some years ago. I  sometime stop something by for the children. Find out where their donation centers are. I don’t think you can just drop by like I did. Things have changed as far as security.
But the greatest contribution should be to your family and it don’t need to be money. Giving of your Time, Knowledge, and Caring
is a very special gift all of its own.
I am full support of people adopting a family who could use your assistance. It could be a senior as well. Many people just need someone to talk to. Hang out at McDonalds and you will find many seniors who meet-up with others just to socialize some even play bingos and dominos. I believe that is great! I met a group such as that last week. I went in to use the bathroom, when on the way out I passed 2 elderly men and ended up staying for an hour talking about many things. You can learn a lot from the elderly, from which I’m heading to that bracket. Age is just a number. What is amazing is that health problems is a main topic for the elderly and I am much at comfort to listen because of my nursing background. I can listen all day and believe it or not, many people are so informed about their illness, I’m so impressed. Yes, we are a much informed society.
Because so many people, both black and white, have been so good to me and have helped me excel in my life, I try to give back as much as I can to others who are not fortunate or is down on their luck.
I am a grassroots person, who is able to think and act independently and love having my own identity. I wish the same for you. To be free as a person who know who you are and to be free to explore, create and reach others to share in the goodness of your heart and soul.
Peace and Love!   Happy Holidays!!

The Future Of America

Cousinzeke / Pixabay

Hello Readers,

Like you,  I too have been wondering what is the future of America. It seem that we still have a lot of problems, but at least we got our footings to press forward and to have breathing room that would allow it.
President Obama speech last night really explained the depth of what occurred in this election from several points of view.
The disappointment in his face really showed his concern about this election.
This election was like no other and I’m sure we have not seen the last of it.
The country is split right down the middle and not in a very good way.
Many of the people I talk to think it’s an attack against their race and culture. Many think it’s all about the money. Yes, money and business. We are human beings. With climate change occurring all around us, we will truly need each other in some way down the road if not now. The road will surely get rocky.
From what I see, there must be some reason that all of this has occurred.
I know that there is a God, but we are the people-his people. We are the people who’ve kept this country moving forward. So let’s keep striving for what is good for all people everywhere and to help those who are down to look up.
We the people can keep America strong if we all work together-no matter what party you belong to.
Tolerance starts at home. Though we all have different personalities, cultures, races, and so on, there is no reason we can’t understand one another and to stand together as a strong America.
There’s a lot of work to do to insure the rights and justice for all, and it starts each day, each hour, each minute and each second. It starts now!
In the future, there will rise again a great person, like President Obama, who saved us from a depression, who have the intelligence to run this country and to improve international relationships-and more likely kept many hospitals open by giving the people the option of getting some type of medical insurance over not having none.  Hopefully the Obama Care stay and be much improved.  I believe the people are paying too much co-pay as it is.

I’m wondering how Canada do it with everyone having medical care. I want to see the template for that program.  France and England also offer free medical care or universal medical care with everyone contributing something.
Yes, there are people who are tearing down their country and we are trying to save those people as well.  The killing have just got to stop!
I remember a few years ago, I had a friend who ask what can she do about some of the
American problems, and my response to her was to take care of your very own family so that others won’t have to. Only you have your love ones best interest at heart-most of the time.
Hitler persuaded a whole country to murder a group of people and with no conscious. You don’t want to be a part of that history. History repeats when we have not learned from the first time. Let the goodness of life enter you heart and everything else will be in place.
Love begets more love,
Hate begets, more Hate,

Why Hillary Clinton Lost The Election and Why Donald Trump Won The Election

What Happened in the 2016 Presidential Election?

Why did Hillary Clinton Lose and Trump Won?

Hello Readers,

Just when you thought that things are calming down from a Presidential election that shock many Americans and Countries around the World, I’m opening up a discussion on this site to have you join on this subject. This is not exactly the site I want to present this forum, however, why not. You just can’t get away from it.
I’m thinking of writing about the subject as a documentation of the event and it’s aftermath in some type of publication, and so I hope you will add something to it as of your opinion.Thelma Harcum from Willingboro, New Jersey wrote on November 29, 2016 at 9:40 am:
Congratulation Hillary!You won the Majority Vote, so now lets get rid of the Electoial College so that you can Be President as you were meant to be!
Four years will go by fast if we can’t get you in NOW!
I would like President Obama to recall the whole election and to throw out the Electoial College in this process so that we can have a president for all the people, which is in the rim of how you believe. Waiting for you. . . . in 2020.
Don’t ever give up. Trump won’t last too long in Washington. His own party really don’t like or want him in their Republican party. Otherwise, it is the people who will determine if he should be impeached or stay. This was the dirtiest Presidential campaign ever with Trump being the master of manipulation and deceit; This is a sign of a very sick person. Many people I’m sure don’t understand how a person could win presidency with a majority electoral vote.
Most people can’t even explain it (electoral college) to others even when they know what it is. So educating the public on this inclusion is important but more important than this is to eliminate the Electoral College. Thank you for all you have done for America and Internationally on the rights of women, children and the community as a whole. Let not your heart be troubled. God is in control and perhaps there is a reason for all of this. Enjoy your family and Beautiful Grand-baby. You have paid your dues to the American Society already. Perhaps this is time for you to relax and let us all see what happens. Thank you, Thank you!!!
There’s a learning experience from all of this. Especially, when they say that a large portion of women voted for Trump of all nationalities and of all races.
Was it all about the Electoral College that really prevented Hillary from winning? Or would you say that people in many parts of the country was just unhappy with parts of the Obama Administration policies on Obama Care or  not seeing an improvement in their lives in general.
Personally, I believe it was for many reasons and surely to God the Electoral College didn’t help
Hillary Clinton.  Even the Republicans are shock that Trump won and asyou can see, they are working hard to get their cabinet together.
What do you think happened? Do you think the country is as divided as we are made to believe?
What do you think?
Please comment and if I use your comment,  you will anonymous in name unless you want to use your real name; whereby, I would ask you permission.

Please respond:  A recording of History of the 2016 Presidential Election
I am surely a fan of the Mother Jones Publications. Review this link to read the latest events of the election and post-election.

Drug-resistant infections are on the rise in the United States, and according to a new report, they are hitting children the hardest.
