And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth, ‘You owe me.’ Look what happens with love like that. It lights up the sky. Rumi. ❤️ Want to be a ray of light and love for an elderly person this holiday season? Here’s the scoop: if any one of us ends up in a state-funded, privately run nursing home, we will get a bed, a roof, meals...and $60 a month for socks, snacks, clothes, toiletries, books, toothpaste, extra blankets...yea... $60 for all the things. Some people are fortunate to have family to meet their needs and to visit them. And some people are fortunate to have us, Silver Santas. The Silver Santa program targets nursing homes that rarely get visitors and adopts out the residents.
If you want more information or if you’ve never participated, and would like to this year, let me know! Comment, DM, carrier pigeon... I’ve adopted, I’ve been there to give out the gifts...and it’s real y’all, so ask me anything! This year, the nursing home is in Texas City.

Hardship may dishearten at first, but every hardship passes away. All despair is followed by hope; all darkness is followed by sunshine. Rumi.
C.S. Lewis penned about something called The Law of Undulation. The premise is that life is full of peaks and valleys. And as you may well know, the peaks are glorious, and in the valleys, feelings of disconnection and hopelessness can take over. Those valleys however are used to stretch and grow us into a peak. So, if you are in a valley, don’t lose faith, don’t lose heart, and don’t eat all the queso... a glorious peak is coming up. #inspiration #motivation #idaho #idahome #getunstuck #gloomyday #fall #travel #tourist #wanderlust #wanderlusters #pnw #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthwestisbest #rumi #rumiquotes #cslewis #idahoexplored #idahogram #7b

Sometimes, we get caught in a loop. We can see it, we can sense it, but changing it - oy - a different story. So, let’s look at Gleicher’s formula for change:
C = D * V * F > R
C is the Change
D is the Dissatisfaction with the Present
V is the Vision of the Future
F is the First Steps or Plan to get there
R is the Resistance to change.
Sometimes, the 🔥 of dissatisfaction burns up sooo much energy and emotion, we focus on self-soothing - and that can range from cocktails, queso, selfies, the sale rack... to running a marathon - and we don’t make F - the first steps or plan for change happen. We focus on distraction instead of turning the D - dissatisfaction - into action. ❤️ Making sure F is a priority can help break the cycle. #inspiration #motivation #changeisgood #change #getunstuck #lasvegas #flamingolasvegas #theflamingolasvegas #thelinq #linqlasvegas #flamingo #flamingos #lulus #lovelulus #zara #zaraaccessories #nordstrom #travel #tourist #wanderlust #wanderlusters #vegasbaby #vegasstyle

From someone whose parents are from a country desperately fighting for their freedom right now (Iraq), thank you to all of our veterans and their families for ensuring we have ours! Freedom is far from free. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. #veteransday #thankyou #grateful #art ##mrd1987 #usa #travel #tourist #wanderlust #spraycanart #art ...

Who loves a costume? I know I do! And so did Rudy Ray Moore, a 1970s stand up comedian and filmmaker. As a young man, Rudy left a small town in Arkansas for Los Angeles to find fame and fortune. For several years, he found neither. Rudy was a middle-aged man in a dead end retail job struggling to get a wee bit of stage time at a local hole in the wall club. Not exactly the life he had dreamt of... Struggling to find fresh material for his act, Rudy created a character named “Dolomite” based on the stories of a local homeless man. The stories were as raunchy as you can imagine, and as Rudy would soon find out, serious crowd pleasers. Once he found some success doing the act, Rudy wanted to produce an album of his comedy. No one would produce it due to the explicit nature of the content. He ended up producing a comedy record on his own. Once it was out there, a production company came across his album, saw the opportunity ($), and then Rudy got a record deal. Rudy wanted to make movies, and once again - he had to make and distribute his first movie on his own. One successful ($) movie showing later, and Rudy got the attention of a film distribution company that initially rejected him. Rudy went on to make millions of dollars and several more movies. Every step of the way, he had to believe in himself first because no one else would. And that’s how it goes sometimes...But remember, you only need one person to take a chance on you. That person might as well be you! #inspiration #motivation #dolomite #believeinyourself #dolomiteismyname #expressfashion #latergram #happyhalloween #meow #pwicares #halloween #catsofinstagram #catcostume #amazon #getunstuck ...
