Wayne Dyer

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, the best-selling self-help guru and author of 30 books, died late Saturday, his family and publisher said. He was 75.

Wayne Walter Dyer (May 10, 1940 – August 29, 2015) was an American self-help author and motivational speaker. His first book Your Erroneous Zones (1976) is one of the best-selling books of all time, with an estimated 35 million copies sold. (Wikipedia)

Here is one of the many post I saw by Wayne Dyer.

15 Life Changing Lessons to Learn from Wayne Dyer

“We are not our bodies, our possessions, or our career. Who we are is Divine Love and that is Infinite.” Dr. Wayne W. Dyer ​(1940-2015)

There are people in this world who can touch our hearts in really profound and meaningful ways, and that’s exactly the impact Wayne Dyer had on me.

Wayne W. Dyer, you were one of the most beautiful, humble and authentic people who ever walked on this Earth. And I learned so much from you. You taught me how to be humble, how to live in love and truth, and how to always honor who I truly am underneath it all. You taught me how to be better than I used to be and I will always be thankful for this. Thank you for sharing your love, your knowledge and your wisdom with all of us.

The world was, is, and will be a better place just because you have lived. You will be greatly missed.

Rest In Peace!

1. Cooperation is healthier than competition.

Work on improving your own person and be so busy doing so that you don’t have time to compare and compete with others. We are all in this together and this sense of separation will only weaken us, creating more pain and suffering.

“If you’re always in a hurry, always trying to get ahead of the other guy, or someone else’s performance is what motivates you, then that person is in control of you.” ~ Wayne Dyer

2. If you love people you don’t try to change them

When you love somebody you love them for what they are not for what you want them to be, without imposing your will and without constantly trying to change them.

“Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.” ~ Wayne Dyer

3. Ignorance is not bliss.

Allow yourself to expand your mind a little more day by day, give up labels and you will be happier. If you constantly say NO to “strange” ideas, things, events, people, how can you expect to progress through life? Try new things, if it makes your life better, stick to it and if it doesn’t, let it go. It’s that simple.

“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” ~ Wayne Dyer

4. You are not a victim of the world.

When you affirm things like, You make me mad, this situation is upsetting me, I can’t believe you are treating me this way, etc., you start playing the victim game. Take responsibility for your own thoughts, your own feelings and actions and by doing so you will no longer give your power away to forces outside yourself. When something negative comes your way, you will pause and instead of reacting, you will RESPOND, to everything and everyone. You will no longer be a victim, but rather a person who is aware of his/her inner strength and power.

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” ~ Wayne Dyer

5. You find yourself in solitude

If you are comfortable in your own skin and really love your own person, you will not be afraid to spend time alone. You will enjoy the time you spend alone as much as you do when you are surrounded by people you dearly love.

“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.” ~ Wayne Dyer

6. Rejection makes you stronger.

If you trust and listen to your own heart and intuition, you will always know where to go and what to do with your life. No matter how many doors close in your face, you will not give up and you will allow rejection to make you stronger and better, not bitter.

“Be grateful to all those people who told you no. It’s because of them that you managed to do it all yourself.” ~Wayne Dyer

7. Self worth cannot be verified by others.

If you constantly seek outside yourself for approval and validation, you will never be happy. We are all different and we all perceive things in different ways but your reputation is not something you can really control. Your reputation is not really in your hands, so stop trying to please everyone around you and start pleasing your SELF. You are the person who matters the most and if you yourself are not happy with who you are, chances are others will not be happy with you either!

“Self-worth cannot be verified by others. You are worthy because you say it is so. If you depend on others for your value it is other-worth.” ~ Wayne Dyer

8. You don’t attract what you want in your life, you attract what you are.

People often think if they focus long enough on something they want, with the Law of Attraction and everything, they will get whatever they want in life, but that’s not how things work. If you purify your mind and hearth, you will attract many beautiful things into your life, and abundance will not be something you will have to chase because it will chase you. On the other hand, if your mind and heart is full of negativity, negativity in all forms will show up in your life.

”If you’re obsessed with defeating the other guy and winning at all costs, then you’re guaranteed to attract the vibrational equivalent of this thinking into your life- even if you do yoga and stand on your head chanting mantras everyday.” ~ Wayne Dyer

9. There are no limits to what you can achieve – you are a no-limit person

There are no limits to what you can achieve, only those you choose to impose on yourself.

“When you argue for your limitations, all you get are your limitations.” ~ Wayne Dyer

10. “Heaven on earth” is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.

Focus on the BAD and that’s all you will see and attract into your life; focus on the GOOD and that’s all you will see and attract into your life.

“Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.”~ Wayne Dyer

11. No need to stress over everything

Believe it or not, there is an invisible force who created the whole world, the whole Universe and this force becomes available to us the moment we stop trying to do it all by ourselves, the moment we decide to allow events to take their natural course and just go with the FLOW.

“Good morning, this is God. I will be handling all of your problems today. I will not need your help. So have a miraculous day.” ~ Wayne Dyer

12. All that you need is already within you.

In this moment you have it all, right NOW and right here, there is nothing lacking. Take time to be quiet at least 5 minutes per day and in time you will discover that you do have access to HAPPINESS, PEACE, ABUNDANCE and all that is good at all times.

“You have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now.” ~ Wayne Dyer

13. There is no end to personal growth.

Personal growth doesn’t end when you finish school. The moment you’ve stopped growing you can say that you’ve stopped living.

Individuals who use self-labels are stating, “I’m a finished product in this area, and I’m never going to be any different.” If you’re a finished product all tied up and put away, you’ve stopped growing. ~ Wayne Dyer

14. Be realistic, expect miracles.

There is a great power in the Universe, the Source of it all, and this power makes itself available to you the moment you align with who you really are deep down inside, creating miracles for you and those you love.

“Once you believe in yourself and see your soul as divine and precious, you’ll automatically be converted to a being who can create miracles.” ~ Wayne Dyer

15. Follow your heart and you will be successful.

There is a great power in the Universe, the Source of it all, and this power makes itself available to you the moment you align with who you really are deep down inside, creating miracles for you and those you love.

“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.” ~ Wayne Dyer

R.I.P. Wayne Dyer… your words will live on forever.

It’s Been One Year

 Joe M. Garza

(July 24, 1968 – August 28, 2015)

 
Hard to believe it’s been a year since my little brother, Joe M. Garza died. 

Lord knows that boy could press my buttons and get me going. But how I would give anything to have him back. 

The year of firsts is behind us now. First birthdays, holidays, anniversaries and special occasions. Now we are to the first year of you  being gone. 

Just recently, after talking with our cousin, Emma, did I feel a little comfort, relief, happiness since you died. Oh, it still hurts, but I can make it a couple of days, weeks without being too sad. 

I know you are with our Mom, just having a grand old time. I came in last place compared to our sister, Cynthia; being my Mom’s favorite. I’ve always been cool with that. They deserved it. Now I know they are together in heaven and that does give me some peace. 

Found this poem and changed it a little. (Thank you and sorry to the person who wrote it.)

Missing You

There is so much I wish to say

I think about you every day

I miss your laugh

I miss your smile

Neither lost nor forgotten…

I imagine them often

It just doesn’t seem real that you’re not around

I still look for you when I’m in town…

I’ll never forget on the 4th of July…

As I sat on the curb, tears filled my eyes….

I found myself looking for you…..

Until I realized what was true…

I will never again see your wave and your smile…

We won’t stand on the street and visit for a while…

No “how you doing Sis” with a big hug to follow….

No “what are you doing tonight” or “I’ll see ya tomorrow”…

All of these things, I cherish so dearly …

In my heart, I remember so clearly…

I still talk to you …

I know you can hear me…

Today I spoke of you and before I finished my sentence….

I could feel your presence…

Then .. a coincidence, or was it a sign?

The song that reminds me of you began to play (“Frer Bird”)…

As If you knew I was thinking of you this day…

I smiled.. feeling you were there with me …

Again… I sat remembering…

Tears filled my eyes as I listened to the song.

But this time I accepted that you are gone.

One year later..

Seems like forever….

I’ve asked myself and I’ve talked to God…..

How could he take you away for so long?

The only answer that makes any sense is ….

You’re in God’s hands now… 

As he planned

Watching us from above…

An Angel in heaven who will always be loved.

Joe… Till we meet again in heaven. Take care of Mom, give her a big kiss and hug from me. I’ll be OK. I’m getting there one breathe at a time. 

I love you, little brother. 

  

Hungry?

I’ve seen this picture a couple of times on Facebook and it grosses me out ever time. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting to make it.

Bon Appétit!

R.I.P. Frank Gifford

I’m a little late on posting this. But I wanted to post some of the pictures I found on Frank Gifford. 

Francis Newton “Frank” Gifford (August 16, 1930 – August 9, 2015) was an American football player and television sports commentator. After a 12-year playing career as a running back and flanker for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL), he was a play-by-play announcer and commentator for 27 years on ABC’s Monday Night Football. (Wikipedia)

I remember Frank Gifford who was one of the host of Monday Night Football and being Cathie Lee Gifford’s husband. 

From the what I read in the Internet about him, I think one of my favorite things was what his wife, Cathy Lee said about him. 

As Radar previously reported, Kathie Lee paid tribute to her late husband in a message relayed on the TODAY Show by co-anchor Hoda Kotb.

“I was holding her hand, and she said, ‘A 4-year-old girl having cancer is a tragedy.’ She said Frank lived to be almost 85. She said he lived an incredible life, has an incredible family and an incredible legacy. She said his life is a triumph.”

Here are some pictures of Frank Gifford. He wasn’t too shabby on the eyes either. 

  
  
 

 
  

Happy Birthday, Joe

Joe M. Garza (July 24, 1968 – August 28, 2014)

The year of first is coming to an end. The first Halloween, the first Thanksgiving, the first Christmas the first New Year’s… they all have been hard.

Today it’s your first birthday since you have died. I hope today you are having your strawberry cake with strawberry frosting, your Route 44 lemon lime slush with extra fruit and anything else that you want for your birthday.

I’m sure mom is up there celebrating with you.

Even though you could press my buttons and give the silent treatment like nobody else, you are my little brother miss you so much. Sometimes it feels like it’s been a long time since you’ve been gone and then there’s other times when it feels like it happened yesterday.

So today I will try my hardest to remember all the fun and happy memories.

Happy Birthday, Brother.

Your Birthday should be a happy day
full of laughter, fun and presents

You Birthday should be joyful
not something I resent.

Your Birthday is a sad day
tears always fall.

Your Birthday is of memories
of days I can recall.

Now you are with the angels
full of laughter and love

Now you are with our Lord
smiling down from above.

Happy Birthday Brother

Marilyn Monroe Quote

I wouldn’t call myself a Marilyn Monroe fan, I don’t think I’ve even watched a single movie that she was ever in. But I did find this quote from her on a friends Facebook page.
  

After reading it a couple of times, it made a lot of sense to me. I think these are words that we should live by​.

Song of the Day

The other day I heard this song and I can’t get it out of my head.

All of Me” (1984) by Julio Iglesias and Diana Ross.

 

 

 

This was one of the first CD I brought. There were a lot of good songs on Julio’s CD, 1100 Bel Air Place.

1. All of You” (with Diana Ross)
2. “Two Lovers”
3. “Bambou Medley: Il Tape sur des Bambous Jamaica”
4. The Air That I Breathe” (with The Beach Boys)
5. “The Last Time”
6. “Moonlight Lady”
7. When I Fall in Love
8. “Me Va, Me Va”
9. If (E Poi)
10. To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before” (with Willie Nelson)
11. “I Don’t Want to Wake You” (bonus track on 2006 version)

I think I like it because I would love to have someone sing to me like Julio!
