Bye 2009, Hello 2010!

Hola, Hello, Ciao, Bonjour, Hallo, こんにちは, Здравствулте!, YES, we have been all waiting, for one reason or another, for 2009 to end, well it's here, 2009 is almost over. Let's focus on the "good stuff" that happened in 2009, and I do not believe everything was bad; let's be happy for what it was, be thankful and GRATEFUL for everything that you have and did not, be positive inside and out, relax your mind and soul, everything will be better in 2010 and that is, if you want it to be.

"In Clover" is the next step, read about this lifestyle in one of my previous blogs; I know you can do it, if you always have this statement present you will be HAPPY, you will be Lucky, you will be Blessed, you will be Fortunate... all that and more. Your mind is an incredible tool to make things the way you want them to be, ASK, BELIEVE and RECEIVE. Don't loose track of what really is important, we tend to do so.

I have been thinking that I never wrote a blog about why I started writing blogs and the reason behind this decision was that I have always like to write since I was young, in fact, I own about 5 diaries... I also have a collection of poems/songs... I started this blog because I wanted to stop ripping pages from magazines about interesting topics, the file was getting too fat and at the end of the day it was an inconvenience to pull it out and flip through countless pages. This is a place where I write about things that we know but we tend to forget. It is convenient to be able to get tips, read about experiences and even personal struggles... all in one place. I really hope that I can inspire you to live a positive life, be open to change, remember that if we don't try different things, you are missing out in life. 

Have a Great New Year! enjoy whatever is left from 2009 and be prepared for a year full of wonderful things! Love you all.

Please Recycle

It goes back to the age of Plato about 400 B.C, recycling has been part of human history through Wartime and Post-war, until now. Recycling "involves processing used materials into new products." Some materials that we can recycle are plastic, batteries, glass, paper, paint, print cartridges... There are many reasons why we should recycle, such examples are, conservation, energy saving, reduce pollution, landfill reduction.

Facts about WHY we should recycle:
  1. Recycling creates 6 times as many jobs as landfilling
  2. Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 trees, 2 barrels of oil
  3. Recycling just one aluminum can saves enough energy to operate a TV for 3 hours
  4. Americans go through 25 billion plastic bottles every year
It is super important to recycle and anyone can do it, the best part, is that, every little bit you do will help tremendously in the long run. Try it, start with paper or plastic or both and take them to a recycling bin that you should already have in your home.

There is so much that YOU can do with very little effort and you will probably save yourself a lot of money while you are at it!
