Go Crazy

Hello, I love this because it is so true, the people who go through life always worrying about being perfectly normal never truly enjoy their lives. It is "insane" IMO to never let go of societies expectations of "normal" and just be. Going so called "crazy" every once in a while will only do your soul good!

What Is Beautiful

Hello, Meet Lizzie, a very sweet person who was dubbed the 'World's Ugliest Woman' by Internet Bullies. I couldn't help but feel inspired after her appearance on the Dr. Drew show. I think she is an incredibly brave and courageous women who is sending a message to all of us, just what is Beautiful anyway?? We have all been so conditioned to what "Beautiful" is through TV and print. I hope her story inspires you as well, and helps you to view yourself and others around you in a whole new light.

Lizzie Velazquez was born with a medical condition so rare that there are only three known cases in the world.

The “Lizzie Beautiful” author says she's used to standing out. Yet, in our beauty-obsessed culture, Velazquez always finds a way to thrive and inspire.

“I'm human … of course these things are going to hurt ... [but] I'm not going to let those things define me," she told HLN’s Dr. Drew Tuesday night.

She added, “The stares are kind of what I'm really dealing with in public right now … I'm starting to want to go up to these people and introduce myself or give them my card and say, ‘Hi, I'm Lizzie -- Maybe you should stop staring and start learning’.”

Watch the full interview in the video player above. Velazquez also has a new book out, "Be Beautiful, Be You."

When an Internet video calling her, The World's Ugliest Woman, went viral, Lizzie Velasquez set out to discover what truly makes us beautiful. Now she shares what she learned on that faith-filled journey. In Be Beautiful, Be You, Lizzie uses anecdotes and exercises to teach readers to recognize their own unique gifts and blessings, talk to God in their own words, deal with disappointment, make and maintain healthy friendships, and set realistic goals.

Suicide Prevention Day 2012

Hello, it feels good to be back here blogging. I could not let this very important day go by without getting involved. On September 10th you can help spread awareness of this condition that effects so many people and the one's who love them by sharing information on prevention. You can join in on Facebook or Twitter, and if your a blogger like me, dedicate a post to this cause. You may just share some information that can save a life, share something that someone really needed, share resoures they did not know were available to them. I was personally affected by suicide when I was a child, as my Mother suffered with Bi- Polar disorder she attempted suicide twice. I am so grateful that she was not successful because with the right treatment that came to her a few years later, she never attempted it again. That help enabled her to come back to us in way's we never thought she would, and for the rest of our lives with her we had many good and happy years, not always perfect, but greatly improved, for which I will always treasure and have an immense amount of gratitude for. That is what the power of someone caring enough to share did for us. It can do it for you too or someone you love, beginning on this day, and lasting a lifetime.

Every day 3,000 people end their own lives, and for every person who dies, there are 20 more people who unsuccessfully attempt a suicide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In the United States alone, that amounts to one death by suicide every 16 minutes, says the National Council for Suicide Prevention (NCSP)
