Back in the 1990’s, I discovered that there were teens on the streets of my town who didn’t have a legal place to sleep. There was no youth shelter, and no long term housing for young people under 18 who were away from their parents and not part of foster care. In many states, including California, women’s shelters didn’t allow boys over 16, so often abused and homeless women would have to choose between shelter for themselves and younger children and caring for their teen boys. I didn’t feel comfortable living in a community where there wasn’t a legal place for a child to be if they wanted to be, so I decided to work to create a program that could provide the missing services.
Nature’s basic rule is everything in balance to maintain harmony. Our bodies and minds are no different and the thoughts we think act energetically just as the food we choose to put into our bodies.

Least valuable are those things that get diminished by being shared.

They say you can’t put a price on love, but some relationships really do cost too much. And we’re not talking about the high cost of drama or stress or the awkwardness of being a mismatch – all of which can be potential deal-breakers – but the cold, hard cash poured into relationships without equivalency or much happiness in return.
The words we choose to use become the mantras of our life, and the energy we give off with these words influences what kind of a reality the Law of Attraction will bring us. Positive phrases give off good vibes that attract a better life. Unfortunately, negative words and phrases give off lower vibes that attract negativity and unwanted realities.
A song and a viral video gave a homeless man a chance to reconnect with the child he was separated from about 15 years ago. “Music took me around the world before I was 21 and somehow, my music now has gotten me back together with my son,” Donald Gould told 24 Hour News 8 via video call on Tuesday. Video of Gould, a 51-year-old homeless former U.S. Marine, playing a beautiful rendition of “Come Sail Away” by Styx on an outdoor piano in Sarasota, Florida went viral, with millions of people seeing it in the last week.
