The Collective

>> Thursday, January 21, 2016

It is one thing to start off the new year striving to be better and hoping for a better year than the year past. It is another event when groups of people are hoping for a better new year than the last. But this year it seems the masses are looking forward to 2016, which infers that so many people were looking for a do over because 2015 may have not lived up to expectations. I know for me I am more spurred on when "the collective" has the same goal and hopes as I do. I sense this togetherness that keeps me motivated. Now I have a new home and a new job from the indirect encouragement and examples of others. Mostly my relationship is not bogged down by worries but we have been more free to laugh as a result of hearing other contagiously happy couples. There is something to this collectivist mentality thing. It has its perks. 


The Start of 2016

>> Monday, January 04, 2016

Already 2016 is off to a new start. For January I have a new job and a new townhouse with some other new prospects. Everyone is talking about envisioning what you want and then all things will happen for you. It has been difficult to envision "good things" for the year. I can only hope and speak positive at this point. I have prayed and help on to a few good words and scriptures but it is hard to concentrate when I want and need so many things.

I'm staying grounded in 2016 as in 2015 I may have been too naive and had to learn some hard life lessons about working with people who are opposite to me or who have negative intentions for whatever reason. I just continue to "speak love" to others and myself. I need a good mirror reflective talk every now and then. It does wonders!

Do your best to cope when it is called for and jump around in excitement when it is not called. It will boost your happy enzymes : )

Correspond later!

Happy 6th Anniversary Live Ever After!!!

>> Wednesday, December 30, 2015


The winner of this year's Live Ever After Anniversary winner is a shocker as all former 5 winners have been female. He will be our first male winner and appropriately suited for his ability to be different and independent to common trends. He makes his own trend and music. For so long he has made hit songs for many famous artists. Now he has come from out of the silhouette and with a great voice, he has become a force in the music industry. 

Without further delay LEA's artist of the year is.......


"Just Start" by Petrina Yemane

Well, we have reached the end of the blog party. I had much fun posting videos throughout the day and sharing my thoughts and heart (See post on "Back Together Part I"). As we approach 2016 I pray for all of you individually, for your families and peace throughout the world. We need to enjoy life and begin our dreams, if still we have not. Getting started is the key. I have many projects. This blog is but one. Before you know it your progress pays off; whether it is saving money, a side job that is your talent, or physical improvement. Just start, this is the secret. Starting is equivalent to planting seeds. Plants grow slow but you will see the fruit with careful attention, dedication and care.

With great love, appreciation and much respect,
Petrina Yemane, Live Ever After
