When I think about our own solar system, only one planet out of nine sustains life! And, then I look among the stars and see all the billions and billions of stars (suns) in our Universe and wonder, how many planets are similar to our world? Are they filled with sentient beings and life as we know it? I am in awe with Earth and deeply appreciate all her resources and beauty. I am grateful for our magnificent world.
Earth is home not only to so many cultures of people, but also to a variety of life forms from single-celled organisms to towering, ageless trees. Organisms can be found in any environment on Earth, no matter how hostile it may be (such as deserts, arctic tundras and volcanoes), life forms have been found. Earth has nurtured all of us and she has provided for all of our needs. Furthermore, Earth is the only home we have; and, I intend to take care of my part of her. Thank you so much, Mother Earth.
Life is always a work in progress; one that we get to enjoy or not because the choice is up to us. ~ Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko
We are the creators of our lives by the choices we make or do not make. It is one that never really reaches completion as each day gives us new decisions to make. Certainly, there may be many steps in it that we can complete; but, ultimately, we are always evolving into the next thing or preparing for the next event or project.
Every moment in time permits us to grow and develop as we experience life and allow ourselves to see the value and lesson in every word, action and/or event in our lives. It is a choice we can make at any given moment. We get to decide how to act and react to words and events in our lives. Joy comes when we choose positive actions as positive action attracts positive energy. The more you give the more you receive.
Try it. Genuinely smile at someone the next chance you get and make positive eye contact . See what happens in return. Pay someone a compliment and see what happens next. Choose to make a difference and make someone’s day. Refrain from a life of indifference and apathy. Choose to care. See what happens. Life is a work in progress. You can enjoy it more when you choose wisely.

We are a blending of all our life experiences…the more experiences the more colorful our life. Embrace each color in your life. ~ Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko
From the day we are born we start experiencing life (and perhaps sooner as we are developing in our mother’s womb). Life experiences start from the moment we feel the cooler air that touches our body after being warm, secure and warm inside our mothers. One experience after another incorporate into our character as we learn how to react and behave to certain stimuli. Our personalities and characters start to evolve as we blend these experiences into our being.
The more experiences we have the more overlap we have with others who have had similar experiences. These coincidences and similarities allow us to relate to each other. We all experienced being born, but after that we start experiencing different foods, climates, smells, sounds, sights. These experiences mold us. Embracing and appreciating these experiences allow each of us to be more joyful. Furthermore, appreciating that others may have had similar and/or different experiences will allow us to develop more meaningful relationship with others, which can only serve to enrich our lives even more.
Each of us have our own set of colors that paint who we are today. As with colors, we all have had the elemental, primary experiences that everyone has experienced. As we grow and develop they amount of different types of experience create different shades and hues of personalities. Those who do not wish to experience new things will have less depth and richness in their life’s portrait. Their lives will seem “flat, dull and grey”. Whereas, if you embrace as many new experiences as possible your life portrait will be more dimensional, vivacious, sanguine and robust. You can choose what you wish to experience in your life. How colorful is your life? What new experiences are you willing to try?

Bouncing back and recovering from a disheartening situation is resilience. Some people are more resilient than others. How do they do it? I believe resilience is developed over time through overcoming difficult times in our lives, whether it be the death of a loved one or coping with hurtful words. Seeing the blessings in our situation is one way to do this. I propose that we ask ourselves questions like: What can I learn from this? What is good about this? What is the gift or opportunity in this situation? What is funny about this? This will help us gain a different perspective of a difficult situation and allow us to grow from it to become more resilient. Bouncing back from a challenge in our life inspires others and ultimately brings joy to everyone.
