A worthwhile world to live in


Some of the greatest humanitarians are few and far between.   Mother Theresa was astounding.    She is becoming a SAINT.  Pretty special huh?

When a woman can become a SAINT, we know the rights of passage from all our mothers, their mothers and sisters, aunts and cousins have had a greater miracle.  The belief that YES a woman can become a SAINT.

What are all of the other SAINTS?  Let me check and BRB (be right back for the newbies and rookies out there:  aka me not that long ago).  

AlllllllllRiiiighTY then (as fellow Canadian Jim Carrey would say) ::..... I found the best and most obvious source and website for your spiritual hankerings, wanting to understand catholicism better, or get in touch with a part of your childhood.  More than meets the eye, or soul for that matter, is this website:  catholic.org for anything and everything Catholic where I went on the hunt for what the other SAINTS are ..... and WOWzers, catholic.org had a whole whack of them.  So many, you can look them up alphabetized.  What also surprised me a la Google, was that there have been Female Saints before (I have to go back and look.....)

So how do you get into social media?  Nothing magical, no big secret.  You just DO.  You sign up, usually don't get it AT ALL at first.  Depending on your tenacity in life, you can end up finding out it has so magical secrets.  For example, starting to blog and acknowledge Mother Theresa becoming a SAINT sometime this weekend (this is when I could use a strong <<INSERT>> VA or virtual assistant.  

So, you give it a whirl.  That's it.  As far as you want to throw yourself or put yourself out to the universe, you can.  All from the safety of your home.  Why go anywhere?  According to the fear mongers, it's pretty scary out there.   Unless, you live in Canada that is.  Noted, oftentimes promoted by our biggest number one fan, Michael Moore.

Yes, we don't have the bi-racial "BLACK LIVES MATTER" atrocities and violence, but we should be honest to acknowledge that we have not been kind to our original people:  aboriginal they're called, or Native Canadians.    I wonder if it is really indigenous people what they wish to be called.  Well, why can't we call be called Canadian?  

I do admire about that regarding the United States.  Compare: "she's French Canadian from Montreal" compared to "he went to TNU (this university), played that sport, graduating with honors, now a partner at a law firm (or associate if the firm is that BIG) or the next heir apparent to the CEO of XYZ Corporation.  

Notice how we reference each other differently?  There are differences.  One of the biggest differences, which I may add, should be taken under advisement as in incorporate this soon because people have forgotten:  "Canada is not another State of the United States".  Whew.  Finally said.  

Dear Dave Reynolds posted this amazingly hilarious cartoon (below) .... he's a pretty cool guy who has evolved into a social media rock star (the fact that he works at a Radio Station in Toronto: (>>> VA insert Radio Station HERE<< BUT don't insert the logo or image placement until passing it by me .... unless I am getting Brand Ambassador credits, I'm not endorsing anything.)










Look, it's okay.  We can laugh at ourselves, unlike the Americans ... ya think?  Well, not necessarily do we laugh as much as an American making an ass outta themselves trying to communicate about Canada.




We're not nearly as sorry as we say it.  Although, our main man Justin as in Trudeau (The other "bad boy" Justin Bieber is passe' who has replaced Lindsay Lohan, Mily Sirus and Brittney Spears in both on and off camera theatrics). 




Is Justin Trudeau still singing the company song?  No?  How long does it take a politician or country leader take to change its mind on foreign policy?  It seems this is a curse of the newbie over the incumbent.  I wonder if they giggle and snort over champagne after the upcoming election, knowing they have a BIG secret that they can't tell until the next official takes office?  Probably.  


OK, so you may not stand up and dance to this .... you just MAY start moving your buttingski to the great vibe!  Happiness  is NOW. 



One of the nicest Facebook links I think I've ever been on. Everyone is sooooo positive. Thank YOU all~It reminds me of back in the day on Twitter with the #UsGuys and gals ::.... a sense of comradery and a whole lot of cheerleading going on. Classy and smart people, distinguished in so many ways. I hope this group of wonderful people try to follow #USGuys on Twitter ::.... they probably created the #hashtag that launch the ability to have real conversations above the noise. I owe a lot of this exceptional support toLinkedIn (give credit where credit is due) where I met this superb gent, who clearly had a lot of sophisticated talent and smarts .... he is definitely CEO defined. Philippe Trebaul Bis has been working on his passion: Socialfave for a while. As a social media hobbyist (I don't 

make money off of social media right now ... although I have before), the partnership, harmony between visionary and company Socialfave was worth a look see. It helps make you Twitter experience that much better: you can define the parameters on what interests you on Twitter and carve it, refine it (just add wine, we haven't figured out to deliver on that ... yet). I hope all of you wonderful people will follow me onJeannette Marshall(@optioneerjm) in the Twitter's FollowFriday Ranking so I can help you too. Eventually, all this excellent karma is going to come to fruition, I've certainly sending it out to the world, with certainly a great, large, sophisticated, intelligent following who like a twist of humor, not twisted people .. ew) ..... I'm going back to surfing through You Tube for some new music (to me) or forgotten treasures (to me)

Triumph over struggle

This blog was originally written earlier today (Saturday, March 4, 2017) on my optioneerJM blog on Word Press ~ where I find an atmosphere of support and celebration of original writing among those who write themselves.  It is the highest compliment any fledgling writer can have.Like most of us at the tail end of Baby Boomers while being drowned out by Millennials, we're trying to get ahead.  Achieve success, notoriety or acclaim.  Subsidize our career choices with our inner voices.  To help others, to help ourselves.  To exhaust our demons by writing and exhuming scars that life has left on our brains.Confidence or competenceA struggling battle between what we want to express and be appreciated for our words.  So many of us write to right the struggles we have fought, the wars we have lost, the lessons we have learned.Gratitude: pitiful compensationWe appreciate the acknowledgement by others who are in chained to the common goal:  of being paid for our words.  What a steep mounta…

Mindfulness mindset

Mindfulness mindset

The following post was originally shared on  JMgallery where I curate art, photography, images that speak to me.  Today, these depictions focus on mindfulness which is an art within itself.  The above captures my positive mindset and peaceful focus to allow me to become present in the NOW.  To be appreciative of the WOW!  Yes the quote and the image harmoniously flowed together to create a positive vibe sent out to the universe.  I can't do anything constructive about my woes at the moment so you allow it to drift away.  Efficiently filed to be handled effectively, like you usually do.  



The art of mindfulness
Practicing the art of mindfulness is a lot harder than it sounds.  In principle, you are meant to focus on this minute, this second.  Building awareness of all things, people, events happening around you in the moment for the moment.  Discipline and meditation are definitely helpful to reach this art of being at peace with oneself in the universe.  Forgivin…

Testing ... reDEFINING

Postings on the Edge
a twist of words as reference to Postcards from the Edge.  

Kindred spirits
join the journey.  But first, you need to begin with me
firstly by watching "Bright Lights" with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds  Take in the poignant moment when Carrie visits her dying father, Eddie Fisher, with more forgiveness than any one I've ever known.

Compassionate creatures 
enveloped from the vessels of "Singing in the Rain" fame, Debbie Reynolds, and her daughter "Princess Leia" Carrie Fisher who wrote "Postcards from the Edge" starring Shirley McClain and young upstart Merle Streep.  I watched this  this afternoon after taking the HUNKster's suggestion of HBO's "Bright Lights" last night when we returned home after sharing a hearty dinner with great friends.  

Quality overpowers time every time
Suggesting quality is not defined by length
of time spent together, but in the value and peaceful-ness with whom we share gain.
