Equality

My family came to this country without anything but the clothing on our backs. With the help of church and government, my parents were able to make sure we had food, clothing and shelter.

Sure they were hand me downs from strangers who donated it. And the food were paid for by food stamps, and our shelter was in a dangerous neighborhood of Philadelphia… but that was like heaven compared to a concentration camp. We were very appreciative.

With 7 kids to take care of, my mom was tough on us about education and respect for authorities.

Now all 7 of us contribute to society and continue to live the American dream.

In America, we have this thing call the freedom to pursue happiness. That’s a privilege that some of us forget we have. You have the right to be happy, as long as you’re not hurting anyone.

My 9 year old ask me about equality. At first, I was struggling to give him an easy simple view on what exactly does it mean to some people.

And as I was explaining it to him, I came to conclusion there are 2 prominent types of equality according to majority of people. Hence the divide.

Democrats, liberals etc… have this belief that everyone should have equal things.

Republicans, conservative etc… have the belief that everyone should have equal opportunities.

NOW, this doesn’t apply to ALL dem and rep… but it generalizes their beliefs.

Equal things and equal opportunities are completely different. You can’t believe in both.

Equal things believers want to take from the rich and give to the poor to try to make sure everyone has close to equal amount of things. If you have more, you should contribute more.

Equal opportunity believers want to ensure that everyone, regarding gender, race, age, sexual preference, are given the same opportunities to achieve and eventually contribute to the pot.

There’s extremist on both sides. I get that.

Equal opportunities exist, it does. I’ve seen it first hand. BUT, that’s not to say that there aren’t people and systems trying to make sure that you don’t succeed. BUT your success is up to you. You decide whether you’re successful or not.

I’ve heard people complain saying they did give it a try and they failed and it’s not their fault. So they gave up. That’s it.

Every success story didn’t make it the first time they try. Some have tried thousands of time… if Edison gave up just after the first try, the world wouldn’t be the same as it is now. He made 1,000 attempts in order to achieve the goal he desired. Those are the crazies that change the world and move mankind forward.

Most people want instant gratification, they believe that if I try and I work hard, success will come immediately. And if it doesn’t, they give up and blame everyone else for their failure. Instead of using it as a learning experience on what to do on the next try.

There should always be a next try. A different approach. Always. Until you get what you want. Otherwise, you don’t really want it, do you.

It’s okay to fall. When your baby makes his first attempt at walking and fall, you don’t say “oh well, walking is just not for you, too bad… just going to have to use a walker for the rest of your life”… no. You help him try and try and try and try again. Baby steps work.

In america, you see successful people of all race, gender, age, sexuality… When they say america is the land of the free, its’ not about free things… it’s about free opportunities.

And EVERYONE have opportunities… if you stop and actually take a moment to see what’s in front of you, you’ll realize that all this time, God has always been watching you and giving you what you need to succeed.

Bad things happens to people. Happens to good people. Happens to all types of people. But bad things don’t make you who you are. It’s a test to see if you’re a human or a worm…

I wish you all the best of luck on your life’s adventures.

No, Trump is not racist or sexist.

Everyone who read my tweets know I’m anti-Trump. But when we are using our energy to fight him by calling him a racist or a sexist is not helping in any way. Why? Because he is NOT a racist or a sexist.

He’s dated blacks… he’s given women equal opportunities in his organizations. Is he a pervert? YES. Is he sexist? NO. Just stop attacking something that isn’t there because you want it to be.

Sexist people don’t want equal opportunities base off of sex. He’s not sexist.

There’s so much we could hate him for, stop hating for make believe things.

You can hate him for his private conversations… but how many people would you really hate if you had to base it on private conversations? I’ve joked about wanting to boink hot guys when I’m with my friends. That doesn’t make me a person who condone non consensual sex… it makes me a person who jokes about taboo things in the privacy amongst friends.

Democrats think that everyone should be serious at all times, even in the privacy?

Democrats are losing because of the message. There’s no real meat behind it. You’re not going to swing voters who matter. Sure you have your base voters, but those who can change the votes? Not going to happen when you continue to push your beliefs on everyone, and then shame and ridicule them for not being in agreement with you.

Don’t make me go on about gender fluid… nope. NOPE. Just NO. I don’t have to accept that, and I’m not a bad person because I don’t.

They attack everyone. EVERYONE. A kid can’t joke about a muslim anymore to his friends on snapchat. COME ON. Are we going to make sure that movies, books, shows, plays etc should always be politically correct? Seriously?

I joke about muslims, and blacks, and whites, and asians, and hispanics, and jews. Does that make me a racist? NO. Does that make me a bad person? NO.

Then there goes transgender kids. JUST NO. NOPE. I’ve seen it first hand, and I’ve watched parents PUSH it on their kids. Its like their kids are not unique the way God made them, so at the first sign of being more “girly” or “boyish”, the parents goes off the deep end. No your kid doesn’t want to change their gender… they just want to have a different experience. Kids experiment. Thats what they all do. Discover themselves. LET THEM BE KIDS.

I’m not a democrat… not really a modern republican. I like the republicans during Napoleon Hill’s time. I believe they embodied what America is about. Teaching a man how to fish without boundaries. Not blame and shame, but help and understanding… knowing that the outcome desired is that everyone’s self sufficient in their own right.

Speaking of self sufficient… I have a marketing campaign to launch with lots of new items for my new online shop… kind of excited. Also I have about 50 new rolls of fabric, with many different prints to play with. So I’ll be up all night again tonight. It’s not up working… it’s creating.

We are meant to create. The act of creation is what our creator want us to do. We are made in his image. So get out there and create some magic.

Whatever you create, chose to create with love… and only love… everything else will come along.

Aloha friends,

There are many moments in my life when I thought I finally found the meaning of it. Life. At least for my life.

And that meaning changes with every new meaningful experience I have.

The belief that we are more than what we are, is not a modest belief, so it’s frowned upon by the majority of our peers.

We would work better if we fit into a mold… says our leader.

We would work better if we just follow directions. Just do as you’re told.

Life should work better for all.

But we know that’s not true. So why do we live by the molds others impose on us?

Go to school, so you can get a good job. So that you can go and be worker bees. Go to school, get a job, get married, have kids… yadda yadda.

Understand there’s a reason why it is recommended to follow these directions. To continue our human kind. Breed & take care of your tribe. I get it. Continue humanity.

With humility, I want to be more than just helping the continuation. I want to help advance our species. Sounds idiotic to you huh? What could a woman like me do to help advance human kind?

Maybe that is the question that everyone should ask themselves when they’re looking for the meaning of life?

At least that’s the question I ask of myself. And what I am instilling in my offsprings. Ask not what the world owes you. But what could you contribute? If you give, you shall receive. That’s how life works. That’s how karma works. There’s a science behind that. Over and over and over again, it’s been proven to be facts.

I’m rambling because I want to share my thoughts and hoping that it would spark something in you too.

I don’t know you, but I love you. I do.

Have a blessed night, with love… and only love.
