I was suppose to go on vacation from May 14th - May-20th. I went but I got ill on the 9th and was still a little under the weather but I went never the less, as my sisters wanted to celebrate my birthday (May 16th) and we all needed a break. I think to help keep your sanity you should take at least a three day break from work every 3 to four months and a real vacation 7 or more days at least once a year. Following that logic I was definitely overdue since I had not taken any time off since July 2008. This was a good time for a break, being a referring travel agent came in handy as I was able to book a 7 day, 6 night stay for just $326.33 per person. We went to South Beach and stayed in a hotel right on the beach in the heart of all activities. It was wonderful and the best thing is that I will get a 60% commission since I booked the whole thing through my own booking engine. If you want to know how you can have your own travel booking site, get more information here. If you'd like to book travel for your own vacation try here first. You'll see the same and or comparable fares you'll find at Expedia, Travelocity, Cheap tickets etc. See for yourself compare the trips with any of the others and you will see I am very competitive. Don't let life pass you by, take time to stop and smell the roses. (And if you need to book travel for business you can do that as well) Visit Simplicity Travel.

Today on Internet Marketers BlogTalk radio show we had the honor and privilege to speak with Glenn Gordon. Mr. Gordon is a member of the Internet Marketers network. Glenn is an entrepreneur who has an awesome talent, his own record label and his own publishing company. He shared his beautiful music with us and we thank him for that. He is also a copyrighter who can help you by teaching you about copyrighting and how to set yourself up as he has. His goal is the same as mine in that he wants to help other people by sharing knowledge to help then help themselves. He has also agreed to return to the show in July and when he returns we will be giving away 2 copyright kits (a $150 value). To win the kit you have to be the first one to call in to the show with the answer to one of the two questions. The first question will be, What does Mr Gordon do in addition to being a musician? The second question will be, When is Mr Gordon's Birthday? Look for the show to air in July. In the meantime check out Mr Gordon's links TSWPlace and TSW World You can listen to show here. To quote the late Lyndon B Johnson "Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose." I will add to that with: I chose to win, what do you choose?

For those of you who might not know I am a Nurse and today, where I practice we had a Nurse Day celebration. It was a beautiful affair. The guest speaker was Karen Scipio-Skinner, ED-BON. Her comments were inspiring, encouraging and humorous. She encouraged us to get back to caring not just for our patients but for ourselves as well. We must all take time to smell the roses. I left the program refreshed and focused. I want to take this opportunity to encourage those studying in the field and those contemplating the profession. Come on we need you. There is currently a nursing shortage and you will help fill the void, and to congratulate the millions of Nurses, CNAs, GNAs and other support staff on a job well done and to encourage you to continue caring for the masses and take care of yourselves...society needs you, the unsung Heroes of the medical profession.

Today on Blogtalk Radio our guest was Daniel Jingwa. He is author of the book "Blue Sky Thinking" and the founder of Happy Energy Inc Seminars. I first met Daniel when I went to work at an area nursing home. Right away I was drawn to his spirit. He practices what he preaches. He has always been one of the most positive people I have ever met. He more than deserves his success. During the broadcast he shared information about how and why he became an author and started the Happy Energy Inc Seminar company. There was a problem during the last eight minutes of the broadcast and I lost my connection, luckily, there was less than 8 minutes left in the show. When called in again, I was surprised to see that all the participants in the chat room were still there. I did my thank yous and started the closing music. I then discovered that there were two people still on the line. after the show had stopped streaming I asked if the 2 people wanted to have a word and one of them was Daniel Jingwa, the other person was my sister, Sandy. We had a lovely conversation. I am not sure if that conversation made it into the archived show since I had an Internet problem as well and had to log on again but we never lost our connection to each other. I hope the conversation did make it to the archived show because it was so positive. I believe that if i help just one person, I have been successful. We definitely create our own realities by bwhat we think and how we execute those thoughts into actions. Sometimes, we need to rethink and revise our plans. If God has given us the direction, and we are slow to move in that direction, as we often do, by allowing other external things to get in our way, God will remove those obstacles so we can hear him and move toward our destiny. I have a friend who is so gifted and who has a couple of business going, but he had felt that he still needed a job. His wife was working outside the home and had been the sole financial support for the family as well as attending school herself. They are always hoping to improve their businesses so they won't have to depend on a job. God said lean on me and I will supply your needs. His wife has recently lost her job due to the economic climate and downsizing. She told her husband she was relieved to be out of that stressful situation as she felt it was going to happen. Now they are free to focus on their businesses and I know they will be successful because it has already been ordained. They are very positive people radiating that "Happy Energy", as we discussed on today's show. We are always talking about having a positive mindset. This is the foundation for all other aspects in our lives including business, personal relationships. What we put out into the Universe is what will be returned to us. In other words, we reap what we sow. If we keep this principal in mind and follow our predetermined path, meaning we take the necessary steps, we will be successful. My prayer is that all I am led to do benefits somebody, then it is not in in vain. Ask God for what you want and He will guide your steps as long as you move your feet.
