Well it is time of our annual Artist Tribute. Thank you for visiting Live Ever After's 4th Anniversary Blog Party. We tried to have a little variety for everyone who visits. Please feel free to scroll to the bottom of page and click "older posts" to watch the earlier part of the party. This was a lot of fun as usual. See you next year for the 5th anniversary of LEA. Now for LEA's Artist of 2013. It was a tie between three people but this artist won as she makes positive music sound so amazing. Plus no one does it up like her. Here she is......................
Three years ago, I had the wonderful opportunity of being a keynote speaker at graduation for my former High School. My address to the students was based on the fact that when they leave they will be judged by the school they attend, clothing they wear and even by their names and birthplace.
Recently, I had to use the main point of that speech. I spoke about being free and freeing themselves from all labels others may place on you. To go and acheive any goal they set out to do. I gave an example of a story I had heard about training elephants. The people use a conditioning system for chaining the ankle of the elephant. After some time the add a red ribbon tied around the same chained ankle. Then again, after some time the chain is removed only leaving the red ribbon.
As you can guess, the elephant will not leave or run away as he sees the red ribbon, he thinks he is still chained. For many of us we may be called names and labeled, making us unable to set or achieve our goals. Cut the red ribbons in your life. You are free to do as you choose and conquer your dreams. Do not let anyone label you and worst of all do not label yourself.
Our blog party is almost over but I have to include this video from last year. It made so many hits since then on You Tube. It inspired me to do a few more videos for Dubstepging. My sons love the music and have contributed two songs for your enjoyment. For now, watch this dancer to the very end. There is no one like him.
I was happy to start this blog as I am married myself and know how difficult married life can be. I also know many joys and experiencing a sense of oneness with my spouse. I am a counselor by profession with two Masters degrees and have counseled many couples with much success. I also have two adorable children who make my marriage even richer in love.
