i'm currently working on making my marketing emails less prone to never being read with asking a question in the subject line rather than telling them the subject and letting the reader make their own conclusion. i suppose my title here though is not very open-ended, thus also creating a lack of interest in reading further. HOWEVER, who wouldn't want to enjoy life more? i can think of a few that prefer to live in the lap of negativity & misery rather than joy & luxury. what a waste, huh?. i think melancholy is just their state of comfort, or their safe spot.
well you may try to pull these people out of their depths, but after a couple times, let it go. don't allow them to suck the energy out of you (i call them energy vampires, you may have heard the term). there are those of us made of light and those of made of nothing who try to misappropriate our light. i'm not saying these people are necessarily bad, most times they have no idea what they're doing. it is up to us "people of light" to be aware of those around us that drain us. either stay away from them all together, or simply know that when you are around them, you will have to take time to replenish yourself after you're done with them (or rather, they're done with you). sometimes i even put up an imaginary bubble shield around me. that seems to help at times.
so to my initial point... i want you to ask yourself how open-minded you are. i think it's an overused and often times misunderstood word. just because you might be liberal or say you're democratic or simply open-minded, you may act as an open-minded individual. i have very strong belief systems in all aspects of my life. many people don't agree with me, but that's ok, because my beliefs are mine and no one else's, this is my life to live. that's another thing i believe, what makes this world...this america...this one life that we are currently living so remarkable is that we get to choose any path we want, any life we want, any action we want, any thing we want.
so please, act open-minded, appreciate others' points of views - even if you wholeheartedly disagree - you might learn something or enjoy a new experience. OH, and if you encounter one that shoves their opinions down your throat or acts as though you're stupid because you think differently, try to ignore them, your efforts to debate or change their minds will be futile. don't waste your light on close minded individuals.

hi everyone! i was and am still just overcome with happiness with all the warmth and well wishes and attention i've received for my 33 birthday (multiples of 3 and simply 3 are my favorite numbers, so this is my favorite birthday)! thank you to you all!
the last couple years has been almost tumultuous to say the least. i know i'm a fighter and will always overcome any obstacle, but the reason i am able to do this is because of my web of friends and family that support me. from those i grew up with to ones i work with, you all bring me joy, laughter, and inspiration.
i will always fight and i will always win because of all of you!
thank you :)

still laughing here, but even moreso creating, crafting, typing, learning and makin' it happen. that's my recent motto "make it happen." it's a super busy time for us at work, but incredibly fun as well. a co-worker and i were talking today about what an individual (a driven individual at least) is truly capable of when they really need to pull from deep inside. i feel that i'm approaching another level in my life, higher than before, or i'm just there and feeling it. it's so great when something you foreshadowed once as being almost impossible just kind of... happens. as you continue to learn and grow and experience all new and different aspects of life, know that you will call upon them some day and it will make your life that much easier. and don't forget to sit back and look at yourself from the outside, you might be pretty pleased with what you see. - so make it happen!
