How to love your perfect imperfections?

Easy.

First, call them a cute name, like peccadillos, instead of ‘mistakes’. Or call them anything else that sounds like armadillo. That will work, too.

Next,  smile.

Good.

Next, hear the pain that you feel when you think of how you’ve ‘failed’, or how you fall short, listen to yourself with a friends ear. Then say to, ‘oh, that must be hard for you, love.’ Hear yourself. If you feel like it, cry.

Next, remember the things that you like about yourself. Then remember the things you’d like to change, (and often you can!), and love those things, too.

Omg, I think I want…

Letters to the Power Plant #34 — Big Drives

Power Plant Men

Now.  To understand a Terabyte, it is 1000 Gigabytes.  A Megabyte is one million.  A Gigabyte is one Billion.  A Terabyte is one Trillion!!!  —  We have…

Black wall Street. A massacre, a sad day in History, and a government Cover up.

CR3W

The media depicted that the most tragic bombing on United States soil happened on the federal building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Plain and simple, they are wrong. A deadlier bomb occurred in the same state back in 1921. Individuals in high places would like to forget that it ever happened. In the current editions of the World Book Encyclopedia, search under the heading of “riots”, “Oklahoma”, and “Tulsa”, there is conspicuously no mention of the Tulsa race riot of 1921. This omission by no means is a surprise, or even a rare case. One would be hard-pressed to find documentation of the incident, let alone an accurate accounting of the events that occurred, in any other “scholarly” reference or American history book. It is a shame because this race riot could open a lot of naive eyes. Author Ron Wallace, a Tulsa native, noted this fact when he started to research…
