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.
Have you heard of this book "Hidden Message in Water"? It has been traveling around the globe from a friend telling another friend. It is very interesting read as it speaks about the power of words on water as we are made up of about 60-70% water. It makes you think about the use of your words and the company you keep. A researcher named Masaru Emoto wrote the book. Now it is on video. This is a three minute clip of the book which will explain better.
We are on a commercial break. I know a great married couple in New York who I miss dearly. Here is a video created by their son for a Doritos commercial. He is one of the semi-finalists. There are only 4 days left. You can vote using the star panel below the video. Thanks for voting! Doritos Commercial

As a therapist I have a continued fascination with what motivates people, cultures, relationships and individuals. What drives your internal pressure? Is it motivation from a thought, a regret, or how you grew up? What are you still searching for that you may have already, but letting slip by? What motivates you and how do you motivate others? What is your truth and how do you handle it or celebrate it? Are you naturally driven? Does fear drive you? Does happiness drive you? What have you not started or completed due to minimal passion? What decisions will you make for 2014 as a result of your determination?
Welcome to the 4th Anniversary for Live Ever After. Although this is a relationship blog anyone can get a little encouragement and self inspiration. We will play videos, music and insightful posts for your entertainment, throughout the day. Tonight, before midnight, we will reveal our Tribute Artist of the year, as we do every year. You are welcome to poke around. Let's start with Taylor and Ed.
Well it is that time again this year. Live Ever After (LEA) has an annual blog party for it's anniversary in the month of October, for the past three years. We are a little late this year but it will be just as exciting as the years before. This blog was created in 2009 and on each anniversary we have a finale tribute of an artist. Who will this years winner be? You can peek and see past parties by using side bar for dates in October.
Stay tuned for LEA's blog party on Friday, November 29, 2013, from 9am to 12 midnight.
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.
