More love; Less trash

Have you heard the song Same Love by Macklemore? I didn’t pay attention to the lyrics the first few times, but it was a catchy tune and I liked it. When I had the chance to pay attention, i listed to the words of the song, And I cried. My kids were in the jeep with me and wondered why I was crying, so I explained it to them.
 
The message of Same Love are the messages that need to be spread.  Unlike some songs we hear by artist that I find spread more and more trash, acceptance of manipulation and abuse (such as …Just gonna stand there and watch me burn, But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts, Just gonna stand there and hear me cry, But that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie…DISLIKE)
 
Spread love.
 
Same Love: ❤
 
When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gay,
‘Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.
I told my mom, tears rushing down my face
She’s like “Ben you’ve loved girls since before pre-k, trippin’ “
Yeah, I guess she had a point, didn’t she?
Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.
I remember doing the math like, “Yeah, I’m good at little league”
A preconceived idea of what it all meant
For those that liked the same sex
Had the characteristics
The right wing conservatives think it’s a decision
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
Man-made rewiring of a predisposition
Playing God, aw nah here we go
America the brave still fears what we don’t know
And God loves all his children, is somehow forgotten
But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago
I don’t know

And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love
My love
My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me
Have you read the YouTube comments lately?
“Man, that’s gay” gets dropped on the daily
We become so numb to what we’re saying
A culture founded from oppression
Yet we don’t have acceptance for ’em
Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board
A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it
Gay is synonymous with the lesser
It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion
Gender to skin color, the complexion of your pigment
The same fight that led people to walk outs and sit ins
It’s human rights for everybody, there is no difference!
Live on and be yourself
When I was at church they taught me something else
If you preach hate at the service those words aren’t anointed
That holy water that you soak in has been poisoned
When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same, but that’s not important
No freedom till we’re equal, damn right I support it

(I don’t know)

And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love
My love
My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

We press play, don’t press pause
Progress, march on
With the veil over our eyes
We turn our back on the cause
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
When kids are walking ’round the hallway plagued by pain in their heart
A world so hateful some would rather die than be who they are
And a certificate on paper isn’t gonna solve it all
But it’s a damn good place to start
No law is gonna change us
We have to change us
Whatever God you believe in
We come from the same one
Strip away the fear
Underneath it’s all the same love
About time that we raised up… sex

And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love
My love
My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is patient
Love is kind
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I’m not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I’m not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I’m not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
Love is kind

TimeWise Basic Set

www.marykay.ca/JessicaDumas

My first Mary Kay purchase was in April 2011. It was the TimeWise Basic Set for $88. My best friend Joanne was having her Bridal crew over for a “Mary Kay Party”. It was a fun day, I wish we would have taken a picture. We had snacks, made lots of jokes and got to try great products for free. As the Bridal host, I’m sure Joanne got some nice discounts or gifted products. There is always a treat to being the host.

By that time, I was trying out new facial products and accepted the fact that I would have to pay more than $15 in search of a good quality cleanser. I can’t remember what I started out with, but it was definitely products from Shoppers Drug Mart or Wal-Mart. I started using some of the more expensive products from Shoppers, paying up to $30 or $35 per item. Neo Strata was one that I used for a long time but my skin still didn’t feel refreshed. The moisturizer tingled a little bit when I put it on but it was really just ok. I asked friends what they were using but didn’t  find what I was looking for.

It was about a month after I was using the Mary Kay TimeWise Basic set that I started to get compliments on my skin. I didn’t expect that. People would complement that I look “really great” and actually wave their hand around their face to highlight their focus of their compliment. It was really nice and helps me feel confident about being a Beauty Consultant for the product.

The TimeWise Basic Set comes with a 3-in-1 Cleanser, Age fighting moisturizer and a Matte Foundation that is a perfect match for my skin shade. Plus I got a free concealer! The TimeWise products cleanse, exfoliate, freshen and hydrate while it accelerates the skins natural renewal process.  I am now a diligent user of the TimeWise Miracle Set and won’t go a day without it.

Check out my new 24/7 website www.marykay.ca/JessicaDumas for awesome products & recruitment information, also feel free to contact me to set up a skin care class or free facial. Credit cards accepted.

My Mary Kay business is part time. All products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed with personalized formula for your skin type and customer service.

Livesafe!

It has been many years since I have strolled down Selkirk Avenue. Today, I start a new journey as a project coordinator out of a Selkirk Avenue office. I came in this afternoon to dust off the desk of the previous coordinator, who is closely at reach for all my questions, Thank goodness. And because I am spoiled, I didn’t bring myself a lunch and there is no Tim Hortin’s on the block. Looks like I’ll be driving to Neechie Commons, which is not a bad thing at all!

I went to introduce myself to an E.D. down the street at another network centre, and as usual, in the midst of a conversation, got called Jennifer, no problem, happens all the time. What was most impressive to me today is that north end “renewal” projects have been physically renewing these buildings and workplaces. It’s awesome. As I have driven through these streets last few years, I didn’t know the extent of the positive changes and active business activities that are happening in these places. The flash backs begin.

The office I am working in I immediately remembered as an old antique store as soon as I walked in. My new roomie was generously Freebreezing the place and it was not as dusty as I remember it at all, and it has been replaced with nice and neat, donated office furniture instead of antique collectibles. Hello Non-profit. The lighting was the same, which makes it all the more fascinating.

One of my responsibilities is to get to know the neighbourhood, so I took a walk to a community network office down the street and when I walked in the door, I remembered walking into this same entrance about 20 years ago (OMG, did I just say 20 years ago?) and the building was joined with the next one and it was filled with discounted house hold furniture then. It was mostly clearance priced couches, bunk beds, tables and household accessories. Now it is a beautifully renovated business space. It was very refreshing to see and to meet the people I will be working with in the community.

I’m closer to family in this work location, this will be new to me too. I look forward to more flash backs and hope they are all as refreshing as these ones mentioned. Helping families and communities work better together and safe living in the community will be on my agenda for the next while. See you around!

MyScript

So this girl says to me “Have you ever heard of The Secret?” and I was like “UMMM, YES. I’M SORRY, AM I SCREAMING OUT OF EXCITMENT THAT YOU ASK? I LIVE BY THE LAW OF ATTRACTION EVERY DAY AND I CANT EVER FIND ANYONE TO TALK TO ABOUT IT!”. A problem that I “created” is that the conversation doesnt go much further than that, I think if I get too excited, people will think that I am crazy. Wait a second..that sounds familiar. I often think people might think i’m crazy. Oh well!!

I wrote earlier about how I was immediately obsessed with learning more and more about the Secret and the teachers that share the experiences and wisdom. Laurel Langemeier was one of the taechers, a millionaire maker and Yes! Energy, (The contest i attempted to enter was bunk, YouTube wouldnt allow me to load my video as instructed and no one would return an email, nor could i find a number to call and inquire. Boo!!) and further to her, Bob Proctor is anothr one I follow. Bob’s teachings can be found on YouTube under 11 Forgotten Laws, Pradigm Shifts & It’s not about the money.

and it get’s more exciting..

Bob Proctor refers to Napoleon Hill, so I figured, the best thing for me to do with that information is to look him up! Napoleon Hill is the author of the teachings Think and Grow Rich, a writer on personal success and the power of beliefs. It’s FREE on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmCtWskzmAQ&list=PLdVyNfDHkxDd4b7Y4O4mVi6T7HRlYaMz9
Think and Grow Rich has been revised for the language of the 21st century and can be found in book or audio by Jamie McIntyre. http://jamiemcintyre.com/think-and-grow-rich-for-the-21st-century/

Napoleon Hill says that each success plan should find the support of a Master Mind Alliance. I am at the point now where I have to talk about my obesession with The Secret because I am not a beginner anymore and I need to find a Master Mind Alliance. But I really dont know how. How do I know who is really that interested and invested in this same mind set? And how do I find out by not sounding crazy?

I think I am relating this obsession to the obsession I had over Twilight. That is when people thought I was nuts. This is not crazy. This is exciting and real. Because as much as I love the warewolf, he is not real.

So I’ve decided to start a group. My plan is to get people together who want to talk about like minded personal success based on the principls of the Secret and any of the above mentioned teachings. It is not going to be a “just show up” kind of thing. I am the Hostess of the group, at a to-be-identified spot, and if you want to be in my group, we wll have a discussion on wheter or not this is the same group you might be interested.

And by the way.. i already have 5 members!

I will continue to grow my personal success on these principals, to which I have never invested more of my own personal time by choice, and loved every minute of it. I will find people who are interested in MyScript group and eventually my Master Mind Alliance will come to me. So far I have had amazing experiences with these teachings.

I would love to share more one on one. the information is free to everyone. The principals and teachings of the Secret should be taught in schools froma young age, that along with Human Rights!

Till next time!

How well can you sell, or how well can I?

So, today i expose myself some more. Hahaha, ohmygoodness, I laughed a lot before posting this and still, i will continue for a long time, to laugh at this video. But that’s life right? I’ve learned to “laugh about it”, you already know that I beleive life is too short and i’m gonna make it good…and if that be putting myself out there, if only but to qualify for a contest and have a good laugh…so be it. Please, I hope you laugh with me!!!

I am a big fan of Laurel Langemeier. On my Youtube feed last week, I saw this video explaining how to win free tickets to Laurel’s 3 Days to Cash workshop. I WOULD LOVE TO MEET LORAL! She’s incredible. I first saw her on The Secret. She said we have to train our minds on the thougts of money, to beleive that “Money comes easily and frequently”. She further explains that it’s going to be hard, your mind will play games and say “that’s a lie, it’s hard”. Well I have this fight in my thoughts. Loral Langemeier has a niche for reading what peoples best skills for making money off the skills they use best. Her website bio says “Loral Langemeier is living proof that it makes no difference where you start in life; anyone can have the life of his or her dreams. Loral is a money expert, sought after speaker, best selling author and President and CEO of Live Out Loud, Inc. – a wealth coaching company.” (http://lorallangemeier.com/loral-langemeier-bio)

So if you feel that my message is convincing enough that I could sell you my product, please “like” my video. You must have a youtube account. Facebook “likes” dont count.

Peace and giggles people!
