The Classic Pamela Positive: “Our Doubts Are Traitors.”- William Shakespeare

“Our doubts are traitors.”

- William Shakespeare

Don’t let doubt into for your life, for it is not a friend. He is not your companion in any way. Would you go on a special walk with Doubt in the hills? Take Doubt to lunch?   Get married to Doubt?

Then stop spending time with him  — especially in your mind. Continue reading

“All the Other Things We Think Make Us Happy Are Actually Just Ways of Getting More Family and Friends.”

jump-628431_640“We are happy when we have family, we are happy when we have friends and almost all the other things we think make us happy are actually just ways of getting more family and friends.”

- Daniel Todd Gilbert, psychologist

Let’s be grateful for all the happiness in our lives today. To truly cherish family, call a long-lost friend, or spend less time on work — and more time on someone.  

All the ‘someones’ in our lives are what give us joy.   Appreciate! Continue reading

“How people live their lives is as a result of the stories that they believe about themselves.” -Les Brown

How people live their lives is as a result of the stories that they believe about themselves.”
-Les Brown


Leslie C. “Les” Brown (born February 17, 1945) is a motivational speaker, former Ohio politician, popular author, radio DJ, and former host of The Les Brown Show. As a politician, he is a former member of the Ohio House of Representatives. As a motivational speaker, he uses the catch phrase, “It’s possible,” and teaches people to follow their dreams as he learned to do.

Les Brown was born with his twin brother Wesley on February 17, 1945 in a low-income section of Miami, Florida in an abandoned building. He was subsequently given up for adoption and adopted by Mamie Brown, a then 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant. He was declared “educably mentally retarded” while in grade school. Despite the obvious self-esteem issues this created, with the encouragement of his mother and assistance by a helpful teacher in high school, he learned how to reach his full potential, a key point in many motivational speeches he gives now.

As derived from many of Brown’s speeches, he first decided to get into public radio and kept returning to the same radio station time and time again looking for a break, and it wasn’t until the on-air failures of the afternoon DJ that he took his break in radio into his own hands and was hired full-time as on-air talent. Upon his termination from the radio station, he ran for election in the Ohio House of Representatives and won. After leaving the Ohio state legislature, he decided to get into television and eventually ended up on PBS. He also formed Les Brown Enterprises in order to support his newest career as a motivational speaker and is now also on KFWB in California on a daily syndicated radio program. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, he also won many local and national awards for excellence and he has an Emmy to his name.

In 1993, he began hosting a new talk show, The Les Brown Show, which began airing on September 6, 1993. After nearly four months, it went on hiatus on December 3, 1993,[3] and on January 17, 1994, King World Productions replaced this with Rolonda, a show hosted by Rolonda Watts.


I Am Here To Establish Connections Of Love.

I Am Here To Establish Connections Of Love.
– Grey T. Full

Really, that’s all we are here to do.

You think it’s to get this major priority done.

To run that errand!

Make dinner

or make that meeting happen!

But isn’t it really to love?

Otherwise, what is the point to “do” all these things, if you don’t connect with love to each person, and each activity?

That’s yours and my grand call in life.

Connect with Love now :-)

Celebrate All Affection

Please don’t take it for granted.

Anytime affection is shared, it’s such a blessing to you, to others and to the world. Cherish it, celebrate it!

It’s not a quick hug rushing out the door.
It’s taking 2 more seconds to say goodbye, look someone in the eyes, and give them a hug. 

It’s not rushing in traffic to get your son’s baseball game
It’s being respectful on the way, and at the game.

Its not wolfing down your dinner.
Someone prepared this for you. And the earth gave you her fruits.  Wow!

Celebrate All Affection. What a Life you will lead!
