Keeping Cool with Clay Aiken

Photobucket


Very early in Clay Aiken's new career of entertainment star, he spoke of many things he wanted to do, and he has lived up to his words and surpassed them.

"It doesn't really matter to me how I make a difference, I just want to make sure that I do"
"I think celebrities have an obligation to the public to not just sing or act."
Clay is a true Measure of a Man.



Ymarie wrote the words I put into this graphic.
It was published a number of months ago, but is worth reading again.

Times are tough these days, so below are eight gifts that don't cost a cent to give.
sent to me by BC.

1) THE GIFT OF LISTENING...

But you must REALLY listen.

No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response.

Just listening.

2) THE GIFT OF AFFECTION...

Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds.

Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

3) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER...

Funny pictures. Share articles, funny stories and funny greetings.

Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

4) THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE...

It can be a simple "Thanks for the help" note or a full sonnet.

A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life.

5) THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT...

A simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a super job" or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

6) THE GIFT OF A FAVOR...

Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

Helping elderly cross the road can be nice.

7) THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE...

There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone.

Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

8) THE GIFT OF A CHEERFUL DISPOSITION...

The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone, really it's not that hard to say, Hello or Thank You.

Clay Aiken He's Better than a Body Has to!

Reposting blog of early July--lost due to computer problems

Clay Aiken is handsome man. So, just what qualities does a man need to be seen as handsome? He has intelligence, personality, a sense of humor, sincerity, and natural charm. Clay has all of these and more inner traits. Plus he's amazingly talented, and is gorgeous to the eye too. He's just the best!

Clay Aiken - Sparkle and Shine


Photobucket

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
~ Elizabeth K. Ross

Clay Aiken is an example of someone with the true inner beauty, he spreads hope and happiness even on the darkest of days.

Grace of God
AmazingCA graciously sent me most of the Clay Aiken graphics for this this montage.
Thank you "T"!

The World Won’t Make You Happy

Happiness does not come wrapped in brightly colored packages as a “gift” given to us by others. Happiness comes when we uncover the gifts that lie within us and begin to use them to please God and bless others.

Happiness flows from within. It is found in the moments of life we label as “quality’ rather than quantity. George Bernard Shaw once said, “This is the true joy in life: Being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one…Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish, little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”

The only person who can truly make you happy is yourself. You simply have to decide to be.

Exercise for Happiness!

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks. Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)


Photobucket

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks.

This entry is dedicated to our recently departed friend, xxx4clay.
Her sparkle and shine will be forever remembered through her beautiful photos and friendship on the fan boards.
