Michael Angelo's Chicken Piccata

Italian dinners made easy from your microwave or oven. That is the Michael Angelo's way. One of their dinners I tried out was their Chicken Piccata. I am offering my review of this frozen dinner with this blog post after having it about twice. I hope you get to gain some insight of what I think about this chicken dinner. Should it be something you should try? Find out by reading on!






Michael Angelo's Chicken Piccata

Here's a look at the product I'll be mentioning in this blog post:

Michael Angelo's Chicken Piccata
^ from: (YouTube) - I tried one of these dinners.

Michael Angelo's Chicken Piccata dinner can be prepared in a microwave or a conventional oven. For the former, it can be put into a microwave for about seven or nine minutes. I put it on at eight minutes. Thankfully, you don't have to do any extra preparing after cooking the meal in a microwave. You don't even have to remove the foil until after cooking. It has white meat chicken breast, artichokes, tomato strips, and red bell peppers and capers in lemon-garlic butter sauce.


Taste Experience.

The taste experience of this chicken piccata dinner is in a word- delicious. It is the buttery sauce that offers a sweet taste of both the chicken and the artichokes. You almost feel like eating even various other bits because of how tasty the lemon butter is.


Final Thoughts.

To say the least, the chicken piccata meal from Michael Angelo's is amazing. Even Michael Angelo's admits it is a family favorite of theirs. So if they like it, you probably will too. It is fairly healthy for a frozen meal also. It has only 290 calories, 14 grams of protein, and 660 milligrams of sodium. I would surely recommend this dinner to anyone who loves chicken dinners. The taste of the chicken piccata is just amazing with the buttery sauce. Both the chicken and the artichokes just offer a wonderful taste experience.


For More Information...

I profiled one of Michael Angelo's frozen dinners. To learn more about their products, visit www.michaelangelos.com.





That concludes another blog post of mine. I hope you enjoyed your time here. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Death of the Brick and Mortar Store?

Could brick and mortar stores become extinct? Online shopping is the way to go in recent times. This comes at the expense of brick and mortar stores along with even shopping malls and shopping centers. If this happens, brick and mortar stores could be easily phased out in favor of online shopping, thus meaning lots of job losses and a bunch of abandoned stores and parking lots. Part of the reasoning for not as many brick and mortar stores lasting mostly pertains to most people finding comfort and confidence in buying material online as opposed to going to basic brick and mortar stores. I often fear a lot of shopping centers will be mere ghost towns since not as many people will go to certain physical stores for things. On top of that, think about the small business owners who may be just hanging on trying to remain competitive in the business realm. There could realistically be a point where a lot of brick and mortar stores simply just will not thrive very long considering the success and appeal of online shopping. In addition, there are many different signs of culture change. Much like how people moved on from 8-tracks to cassettes and CDs, a lot of people are moving on from a lot of physical stores to online stores. Shopping centers, malls, and even places like grocery stores and department stores are even looking at options of online shopping. So there may be a chance that the brick and mortar store can either be not as productive or even be obsolete.

This is basically a collection of thoughts in regards to the dead (or dying) brick and mortar store. So please read on if this topic interests you.






Death of the Brick and Mortar Stores?


brick and mortar store death extinct obsolete
^ from: www.innovativeretailtechnologies.com - Could brick and mortar stores go the way of the dinosaur? Some think it is a matter of time before most brick and mortar shopping centers become dead or even obsolete considering the success of online shopping.


Can the brick and mortar store become obsolete? Here are a collection of thoughts of mine.


Dead/Dying Shopping Centers.

What possibly could abandoned stores and malls be like in the future? Here is one article showcasing what could become of certain stores and malls. By the way- I recommend you watch the video that comes with this link: Here's what could happen to America's hundreds of dead malls.

Here in the Houston/Galveston area, I have come across a number of once-thriving shopping centers. In my youth, my family would go to Almeda Mall in southeast Houston. It used to be that there were a lot of great stores to go to. I certainly enjoyed going to the arcade store there to play arcade games. There were also a book store (Waldenbooks), a toy store (Kay Bee Toys), a Radio Shack, and even a few restaurants I liked. There was also an area adjacent to the food court that usually is home to the merry-go-round or other fun events (such as the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus). The mall has a small library outside of the mall also that had some books I was looking for for a project I was working on. Keep in mind that this was back around the 1990s. Last year or so (or maybe this year), I revisited Almeda Mall. SO much has changed. Many of the past stores are dead and gone. The library at Almeda Mall is abandoned. One of the anchor stores, JCPenney, has long been a Burlington Coat Factory store. You almost can't tell it was a two-story JCPenney store. One of the bigger stores at the mall was an Old Navy store. I even remember in the past how that Old Navy used to be a bunch of stores, including a Woolworth. That big Old Navy there was abandoned for the longest. Rather than a lot of stores being within the mall building, some stores and businesses are situated outside of the mall. This is an example of a once-thriving mall increasingly becoming a potential dead shopping center.

Did that example prove my point? Well, I got more for you! These are some Houston/Galveston area locales to prove my point.

• There is Pasadena Town Square that I've been to before. This is Pasadena, Texas, mind you. Anyhow... I liked this place for stores like Electronics Boutique, the F.Y.E. music store, the fancy food court, and the arcade room there. Last time I visited... there was an arcade room that was under construction, the food court is almost literally dead, and what was the old arcade room has long been cut off. There are also not as many stores or interest inside the mall.

• San Jacinto Mall around Baytown also was kind of a thriving place. Most of the old stores have died out. One of the anchor stores is (on my last check) now some kind of college. There are still a cool movie theater and an arcade room there. However, there aren't too many more stores.

• Mall of the Mainland was a mall I visited maybe twice before. Both times, it just seemed like an indoor desert. I often joked about seeing tumbleweed in the mall and around the mall since it is so empty. Mall of the Mainland (or what used to be Mall of the Mainland) was a mall in Texas City, TX.

As you can tell by these brief bits I have mentioned, shopping centers and malls are businesses. When businesses fail, you end up with lost jobs and lots of abandoned space. You also end up with places where people can't really socialize and have fun at. So while I am looking at all of this on the standpoint of business, there is also a social aspect that takes a hit when such locales are gone.


Why Online Instead of Brick and Mortar?

For one thing, certain items simply just aren't available or sold to physical stores. For example, I had to buy a PC audio splitter cable for my gaming headset online after many stores don't sell such cables at physical stores. I bought a USB Bluetooth dongle online for the prospect of using Bluetooth to transfer material. Certain items simply are not sold at even small businesses. Not having to leave home to buy items can be a great reason why many prefer online shopping. Or at least, being able to shop on your mobile device as opposed to going to physical stores to buy things.

Often times, online shopping can lead to you getting things you didn't ask for. This is like when you order certain food at restaurants, and you end up getting something different than what you ordered. As if you get a fish sandwich when you ordered a cheeseburger. It is often better you have a brick and mortar store so you can actually see certain items you want to get in person. At least you can see and touch certain items you are interested in. You could read all you want about certain items available online. As we all know, people can manipulate and alter certain seemingly legit items and provide fakes or misinformation. Therefore, it is best to visit certain brick and mortar stores. I personally find brick and mortar stores to be better than having to shop online. I will mostly shop online if I feel I can't get something at any brick and mortar store (even secondhand items) that I could have a better chance of finding online.

I think thrift stores and consignment stores may likely be the best survivors should brick and mortar stores die out. I mostly am thinking of stuff like The Salvation Army, Goodwill, and stores like that. Even the fact these are used items and worn items still mean they can be enjoyed and have a good amount of purpose still in them. Usually, these are the kinds of items that still provide some sort of pulse among physical stores.


New Hope for Brick and Mortar Stores?

To avoid being completely phased out, and if you saw the link I posted before this section, you will know certain failed shopping centers are becoming re-imagined. So it may be possible brick and mortar stores may not completely go the way of the dinosaur. However, shopping centers are as much of businesses as almost any other business. Businesses succeed and fail. In the case of dying areas, certain former stores and former shopping centers could be converted into other businesses. It happens all the time most of the time. A shopping center you may remember could be a big church or maybe some kind of educational facility. Anything to keep business going and extend the life of certain properties will be taken full advantage of to make the most of any newer opportunities.


Final Thoughts.

The reason I get depressed about decaying and dying shopping centers is that I find shopping centers as both thriving businesses as well as social hangouts. By going with mostly online shopping, you don't get to enjoy brick and mortar stores as much as you can. At least you can be able to get certain items from physical stores rather than exclusively have to get content from an online store. While I haven't fully concentrated on the social aspect of brick and mortar stores, the impact of not as much social attention to such shopping centers also takes a hit as such locales die out or fail to thrive. With all of this said, the dying brick and mortar store can lead to losses both in business and social fields.

Loving Support

One can live life alone, but it is nice to know there are others who care about you. I think a lot about people who have certain issues, some blessed to have support from family, friends, or loved ones. Those with loving support just make life easier. Not all the time do others remain loving and loyal, but at least I think of those who benefit from having someone care about them even in the roughest of times. Having someone care for you and love you will not solve the world's problems, but at least there is something less to worry about. I blogged before about love being something to motivate you and help you feel better. I am dedicating this blog post to people who have others in their lives who are sincere and respectful.

Sometimes, I feel like any kind of positive material I suggest makes people think I have a one-sided mind regarding certain issues. So in this context, there are those who probably feel I am not regarding the fact that not everyone needs or cares about having someone else look over them. Or maybe having someone worry about them only makes someone less of a person. The fact is that there is a psychological advantage in having someone care about you and think of you kindly. The only way to disagree with my logic here is if some of the ones who show interest for you in tough times are only pretending to like you rather than be sincere. You don't tell people to be in your life. However, it is nice to know there are those who actually do care and actually want the best for you.

If you happen to know such people always wanting the best for you (even if it's me), be blessed and humbled. At least it is nice to know there are people who care in a world where it seems like hardly anybody cares. We always hear stories of despicable crimes and absolute stupidity. It is refreshing to know people do care and that there are good people left in this world. So thank the person or people who think about you and love you as you face some tough times. While you can still live life solo, at least be thankful there are people who want to help make life better for you. These are people who you should hold close to your heart and be blessed to have so much love and support. And as long as you don't do them wrong or if they don't do you wrong, be thankful for the loving support you get from other people.





I am hopeful this positive and lighthearted post is to your liking. I do what I can to offer positive material in a seemingly negative world. I just hope you appreciate my efforts even with the most depressing and difficult topics. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Live Stream Dream

My #LiveStreamDream has come true! Through Restream.io and with Open Broadcaster Software Studio (OBS Studio), I made my first-ever live stream. It was a learning experience for me. This blog post explains some things I learned. You will get some insight on me putting this all together and how I thought I did with my first live stream. So I first want to thank you for visiting my blog. Keep reading on for some of my thoughts in making my first live stream.







My Live Stream Dream!


Since joining Twitch early in January 2017, I became a regular on Twitch trying to find all sorts of material. I got involved with streams and even tried to find channels I liked. I had the dream of making my own live stream of some kind. As I was putting together material to make that dream come true, I knew I had a chance to be my own superstar. And unlike some things in my life, dreams were realized and came true.

I made the hashtag #LiveStreamDream to showcase my first-ever live stream. The point of the topic was to introduce myself and to showcase my blogging work. That was the topic I decided on when making my first live stream. As I selected my topic and thought about what to discuss, I went ahead and put the stream together as I was thinking about it. I even said a little prayer before starting my live stream. I was fairly nervous for the most part, but I eased into making my live stream as time went along.

In making my first stream, it meant some things went right, and some things went wrong. Here is an overview...


What Went Right...

The biggest thing that went right is that I managed to successfully stream something to Twitch. I also felt more confident using OBS Studio for live streams rather than OBS Classic. I used OBS Classic to make my GTR2 video project. Turns out, I may use OBS Studio for my streaming. Initially, I was never able to use OBS Studio efficiently. Turns out this program was made for streaming basically. So the amount of control was great in switching scenes and in designing my material.


What Went Wrong...

Twitch got the stream, but there were some main problems. I streamed my material to YouTube Stream Now, but I never saw it uploaded on YouTube. I gave out social media alerts, but a link to my stream was never posted. Because it was a live stream and because I didn't entirely plan on discussing my material in a cleaner manner, the usual sort of stutters happened in my stream. This also meant I was at a loss for words.

UPDATE: YouTube did feature my video. It just took a while initially for YouTube to save my stream to video.


My Grade for My First Live Stream.

I am going to give myself a B- for my efforts. If I can connect my material better, I felt my live stream debut would have been much more successful. I otherwise felt more confident as I went along. I tried to offer my video in kind of a 720p setting to suit widescreen formats. This is almost the question of, "if a tree falls in a forest, will anyone be around to hear it?" So if I posted a live stream, will anyone be around to see it? Since it was not linked from my Social Media alerts, nobody got to see me live or interact with me. I want to offer the opportunity to have people view my material and interact. I was unable to provide the kind of environment I wanted to make. And in so, I failed most in that department. At least now I have some Restream experience.

I do see myself attempting more live streams. When and on what topics remain to be confirmed.

PLEASE be sure to offer your thoughts on the quality of my work. I may be able to make better material in the future. I am not sure how long my video will stay up on Twitch. So therefore, it's best you check it out now before it potentially could be gone.

Other than that, it was a tremendous experience to do a live stream. I may try to make more. Make sure you follow my material to see more of it when it becomes available. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Inspireu2Action

@Inspireu2Action is an initiative set by Julie Barbera. If the Barbera surname sounds familiar, that's because Julie is the sister of inspirational singer Amy Barbera (previously featured on "John's Blog Space"). I figured for this blog post that I introduce my international audience to the work of Julie Barbera. Maybe you will get to gain her insight and let her advice empower and encourage you. Remember that all of my material are positive spaces, even with the most negative and depressing topics. So allow me to discuss Inspireu2Action.






Inspireu2Action


Inspireu2Action was created by Julie Barbera. These are podcasts and messages created to help empower and encourage people to get through life. Julie offers up personal insights and offers a handful of useful advice based on her experiences. Biblical insight is also offered at times also.

The main idea behind "Inspireu2Action" is to get people inspired and motivated to make changes in their lives to become better people and live better. Motivation can be tough, but at least Julie Barbera provides a basis behind getting started. Her advice is helpful even if you feel you don't need extra inspiration. In that case, perhaps Julie can help you become better even if not facing some crisis. She provides calming words and encouraging thoughts to help you do and feel better than you have previously. You don't have to live like life is the most depressing thing ever. Let Julie offer up wonderful thoughts to help you become the amazing person you were destined to be.

So if you're in need of some positive reinforcement, just remember that Julie Barbera is here to help empower you to take action one inspired step at a time. Julie does all she can to help... inspire you to action!


Final Thoughts.

In today's negative world and within our own transgressions, Julie Barbera's "Inspireu2Action" initiative is a source of positive energy and inspiration. Anything to help provide something wholesome and powerful is much appreciated in today's society. Handling the task of inspiring and motivating others is not as easy a task as it could be. Yet still, Inspireu2Action is a tremendous boon to positive thinking and living better. Julie's advice is as beautiful as her looks.

Sydney Celeste Rose

@Model_Celeste23 is a jack-of-all-trades entertainer. Nicknamed the "Bad Ass Barbie," Sydney Celeste Rose is a model, musician, comedian, and more. Her talent is greater than her petite frame. I first learned of her on LOOKBOOK. She shown off some of her outfits before, and I enjoyed her looks. I later went on to see some of her other modeling shoots and even listen to her music. After a while, I was sold on Sydney Celeste Rose. She is a Greek model based in North Carolina. This blog post is sort of my look at Sydney Celeste Rose.






Sydney Celeste Rose


Here are a few individual pieces in regards to Sydney Celeste Rose.


Modeling and Style of Sydney.

Sydney Celeste Rose is beautiful to look at. Her smile is very sweet complimented with her beautiful, long, curly hair. I will even say she boasts a pretty pair of legs as well. Perhaps Sydney's signature style would be some kind of leopard print incorporated into her wardrobe. Yes- she's one of those girls. Many of her outfits range from casual outfits to various chic outfits. Lingerie and swimwear also play as her fashion fortes. She has even had some more classy outfits. For the most part, Sydney mostly delivers enticing modeling in her style.

Sydney's modeling also includes promotional work. She has been a model promoting certain businesses and products.


Music of Sydney.

I don't think Sydney has the best singing voice, but I do think she puts on a great show. I actually think her singing has gotten better since I first learned of her. As of April 2, 2017; she is working on a hip-hop song with a producer named Verceti Trap Star. I wish her luck with this music project.

While this video isn't an example of her hip-hop music, this is a sample of Sydney's singing ability:

^ It's whatever (cover )


A Determined Dreamer.

What I love most about Sydney is just how real and honest she is. If anything, she is someone who you can look up to. Just having a passion to perform is also what makes Sydney special. Whether or not you think Sydney is the best at her performances is up to you, but she delivers no doubt in her work. She only stands 5'2", but her personality and her heart are much greater than her petite size. Here is a video demonstration of the heart she has with her work:


^ Question : when did you learn that grinding like no one is watching is the key to success?

And then, there is this video interview Sydney did:

^ Sydney Celeste Rose Interview

Convinced much about her heart?


Final Thoughts.

Long story short, I have great respect for Sydney Celeste Rose. Not only (mostly) for her amazing looks, but because of her determination and her heart. Nothing was handed to her- she worked for everything. Even when others said no or doubted her, she kept going because there was a much greater purpose to her work. You can not fault somebody for simply following his/her dreams. The end game is in trying to reach a level of satisfaction and success that defines her as a person and as an entity. Sydney is going to go very far if she hasn't progressed well already. She represents unrelenting courage and determination to be absolutely amazing and accomplish absolutely amazing. She also represents the "prove you wrong" type to those who doubt her. Sydney may be sassy, spicy, and wild; but she is also beautiful in heart and (obviously) looks. There is no denying she is someone born to perform and born to succeed.


What If Sydney Read This?

I have long admired you and your work. Just your personality and spirit alone are reasons why you have become the superstar you've become. Keep up the great work and keep inspiring others. Maybe some of my viewers of "John's Blog Space" will get to appreciate you and all you do.


Would I Want to Meet Sydney?

I think Sydney Celeste Rose is a very cool personality. So I'd definitely want to meet her if given the chance or meet candidly.


For More Information...

John's Corner: Live Streaming?

Since the start of 2017, Twitch has kind of become an obsession. I'm looking for some of the latest videos and games with various personalities. People miss me on YouTube. However, I am tempted to live stream. If the dream to live stream materializes, it could be possible I add another layer to my jack-of-all-trades appeal. The primary bits of concern are mostly about picking a proper platform and knowing what to actually make streams about.

Welcome to the latest edition of my series where it's just me chatting with you. I call it...

Johns Corner
JOHN'S CORNER!

Chances are, my work may range from podcast-like material to certain features. In fact, rather than having pre-made videos of certain projects, I may elect to have certain game footage run live rather than come up with some highlight package. I will work with OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) Classic to make my material. OBS Studio may allow more flexibility, but OBS Classic works better for me. I'm sure you all will hopefully get to support me and my work should I get something going on Twitch or YouTube. There is even this service called Restream.io that allows you to simulcast your live streams across many different platforms. I am considering that as well so that I don't have to specifically target Twitch and/or YouTube.

Whatever I come up with, I hope to do good and provide quality material. I don't do promises, but I'm sure I will not disappoint with any live stream material I may make. Visit my Twitch in case you're interested:

Turtle Beach Recon 60P

I admit not being any hardcore gamer. In fact, I was never a hardcore gamer. So why would someone like me get a gaming headset? Well, I want something better for audio and voice chatting than my USB headset. I did my research and decided to get myself the Turtle Beach Recon 60P from a Wal-Mart. It was what I wanted and was within my budget. If I could, I could have picked up the Turtle Beach PX24, but I got the lower-spec 60P headset instead. Anyhow, I am here to blog about the Turtle Beach Recon 60P gaming headset.






Turtle Beach Recon 60P


Let me share with you the headset I will be referring to in this blog post...

Turtle Beach 60P gaming headset
^ from: www.amazon.com - This is the Turtle Beach 60P gaming headset. This version is for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4.

Turtle Beach is a company I am familiar with prior to getting this headset. I had a MIDI cable to hook from my music keyboard to the PC, and I think it was from either Turtle Beach or Voyetra. Anyhow, Turtle Beach offers the Recon 60P as a rather affordable headset for gaming and even for listening to media on your PC or on your mobile device. The Recon 60P comes in a regular version and an amplified version. The amplified version is only for consoles. This is a wired headset, and I don't think In my case, I bought the regular Turtle Beach Recon 60P headset for the PS3 and PS4. Live streamers on Twitch and YouTube use headsets the likes of Turtle Beach.


Turtle Beach Recon 60P at a Glance.

When I tried out the Recon 60P on my PlayStation 3, it was a bit tough trying to open the box, take out the contents, and find out what goes where. You do get a manual letting you know what all goes where. You can also use this headset on your PC. If you don't have a USB port on your PC and if you have individual green and pink ports on your PC, you will need to purchase a PC splitter cable from the Turtle Beach website. I took the advice of one website to simply jack in the USB port of the headset to this super-long cord. I felt then that I didn't need to purchase the PC splitter cable to use this headset on my PC. At least for my Windows 10 PC, it is plug-and-play. So the device will be recognized on your PC as long as it is jacked in. You can even use the headset as well as the microphone. Speaking of the microphone, you can detach the microphone so that it doesn't get in your way listening to music. You can adjust the microphone to your liking. Just make sure it is plugged in. The Turtle Beach Recon 60P has one device that allows you to turn the volume up and down as well as turn the microphone on or off. The amplified audio only applies to console gaming.


Using the Turtle Beach Recon 60P.

The Turtle Beach 60P offers a very comfortable experience. It offers a comfortable feel on your head and on your ears. Sound quality is very good. I wouldn't say impressive, but you do get a great hearing experience. Sample recordings of my voice in Audacity were fairly good. Not exactly clear, but I did enjoy most of my results. I used this very long cord included to connect my headset to my PC. The cord is so long, I literally stood outside of my room and still was able to comfortably still be able to hear my headset without venturing too far from my PC! The two things you need to be careful of when doing voice chatting is that your microphone is properly connected and that you have the microphone enabled.


Final Thoughts, Review.

This Turtle Beach Recon 60P gaming headset is perfect for me and my needs. I am not blown away by it, but it is a great gaming headset for my needs as a gamer and as a PC user. I can not really find any faults with this headset. Unless you want something a bit more hardcore for your gaming needs, try some of Turtle Beach's other, more expensive headsets. I actually was very pleased with my purchase of the Turtle Beach Recon 60P. Maybe you will be too if you were sold on my review of this headset.

I want to attempt a live stream or do some other kind of stream someday. I want to be able to listen to my work and speak using this Turtle Beach Recon 60P gaming headset. My own speaking could be supplemented as audio tracks to my videos. So the possibilities are endless to me. Regardless of these possibilities, at least I know I have a great gaming headset to make this all happen.

Vicious Circles

Vicious circles have reoccurring problems that result in nothing getting done. Vicious circles (also called vicious cycles) involve the same issue(s) circulating, rendering us incapable of accomplishing tasks or achieving goals. Everything comes back to the same faults or weaknesses. Especially for people trying to do things like lose weight or get a job, some of the same problems arise with hardly any answer to break such circles and emerge. You try to accomplish something; but one problem leads to another problem, then another problem, then another problem... almost like you are driving forever on a highway loop with no offramp in sight. That is what being trapped in a vicious cycle is like. You want to get off that freeway but keep going in circles with no way to escape. You want to break that cycle so you can accomplish whatever it is you want to accomplish. However, vicious circles will prevent you from making magic happen because the same issue(s) will keep preventing you from completing certain tasks.

The opposite of a vicious circle/cycle is a virtuous circle/cycle; however, this blog post is about vicious circles. I am hoping again to address a not-so-nice topic and offer some positive and encouraging advice.


When Faced With Vicious Circles/Cycles...

So what can you do if faced with living in a vicious circle? The main goal is to try to have some kind of way to break a cycle that is tearing you apart inside and preventing you from living better or staying happy. Everyone's situation in a vicious circle is different. What is often done to try to help certain situations opens up several other possibilities and problems. A potent solution is what we all want when faced with such shaky situations. You find yourself finding other ways to gain comfort and control, but some of these methods could make things worse. For example, people drink alcoholic beverages or smoke to get over certain rough times or troublesome situations. These actions provide mostly temporary relief, but these actions can potentially make things worse. So the best way to break a vicious circle is to opt for something to provide more effective relief from pain. Rather than be locked into a no-win situation, find some sort of way to emerge from being caught up in a loop limiting your productivity. You may need some motivation from others either internally or externally. You still need to have some kind of way to overcome such odds and break from vicious circles.

Life has its fair share of moments where it seems difficult to live happily each day. Sometimes when you try to remedy bad situations or do your best damage control, certain solutions only lead to more problems or no definitive way to overcome problems. So consider your situation wisely and do not do anything that can only make things worse. The last thing you want when facing hard times is to have even more problems to deal with.

Do your best to break vicious circles in your life. Some negative never-ending cycles in life just need a little something to help make life and living enjoyable (as opposed to overly stressing). It won't be easy. Everyone's situation is different. What is most important is being able to find ways to break free from an endless loop of negativity rather than let such vicious circles take over your life. Having said this, be hopeful and strong.





It is always tough discussing certain life issues. However, I want to do my best to offer some kind of support or help. I don't have the answers to all of life's questions, and I do not work miracles. I am living life as best as I can- just like you are. There sometimes need to be moments where I actually give back rather than post nonsense all the time. I do what I can to inject some positivity to an otherwise negative world.
