Make 2015 the Most Amazing Year Ever

We can all make 2015 the most amazing year ever by staying #FOCUSED and willing to #CHANGE along with #PERSISTENCE!

Einstein says:  “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Perpetual contentment in our best efforts is the sign of success for it can not be bought, traded or given to us by family or friends; however the Universe responds when we are dedicated with kindness, generosity and humility. The Law of Attraction illustrates how we receive what we give.

We learn by repetition so when depressed habitually go to uplifting people and quotes; it makes a difference. When happy the more we give, the longer we stay happy!

Inspiration for the spirit is priceless; treasures beyond the physical such as happiness are life’s only true valuables.

Enjoy and Bring Joy!

Enjoy and bring joy! “Do anything, but let it produce joy.” ~ Walt Whitman

So on off or down days, if we surround ourself with those who Mark Twain says,

Some people bring joy wherever they go, and some people bring joy whenever they go.”

Joy is contagious. We are the company we keep!

It’s Been A While Since I Blogged!

It’s been a while since I blogged. So much going on and hard to keep up with everything. Just thought I’d wish everyone all the beauty and kindness in abundance and more than you give and send out during this holiday season and always! Thought I’d share these kindness quotes I came across and appreciate. I always say “kindness is king!”

“You know what love is?
It is all kindness, generosity.
Disharmony prevails when
You confuse lust with love, while
The distance between the two
Is endless.”

~ Rumi

Roses and Buddha Kindness quote“To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.”

~ Confucius

EP Funded 104% in Record Time!

My immense appreciation to every pledging friend on our EP campaign! It was funded 104% in a record 5-1/2 week time frame!

www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dilee

It typically takes 60+ days to do a crowd funding project and because of all of my caring, supporting friends who are forever in my heart, the text info (writers, producers, lyrics, mixers) for the EP CD on the 3 songs have been submitted to the Grammys as a new member in time for their August deadline.

As my very first submission it’s simply a joy to be able to submit for nomination consideration! The songs are finally mixed for mastering Monday Sept 15th so CD manufacturers can print full jewel case CD’s for all who pre-ordered as well as hard copy submission follow up to the Grammys within their final deadline.

Thank you again everyone! So pleased to hear the feedback from each of you on the PledgeMusic site regarding the front cover, back cover, inside cover, behind CD, the CD itself and all the artwork! More soon stay tuned!

Pledgemusic Doesn’t Charge Credit Cards ‘Til 100%

#BeyondHappy & willing to fail release of my EP due to misunderstandings (as I could not possibly be happier even to re-record, release EP & submit to Grammys via crowd funding www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dilee ). Pledge Music is NOT like others in that they do NOT charge any credit card til I reach 100% then they only release partial funds until all merchandise is shipped and received protecting the consumer.

Thought all crowd funding was this way but that is not the case. Kickstarter is only other crowd funding platform that I am aware of in addition to Pledge Music that protects the consumer.

So whether or not enough of my friends stand by me or not I will still slowly release music to help inspire and heal as well as support IRS verified charities such as www.CircleofHopeInc.org (concert Aug 16th & 10% over target goes to them with balance of overage for more songs or live concert in top grossing city) and continue supporting products like www.Rebbltonic.com (drink pictured here) proceeds go to help prevent human trafficking.

Thank you pledging friends in putting your credit card on hold to buy my EP! You are forever in my heart brothers & sisters regardless of whether we reach 100% funding …where if we fall short no money exchanged nor are products sold. If pledged with PayPal and goal is not reached, that is where refund occurs. I’ve got your back to whatever capacity I am able to now and in the future. If we don’t make our goal, EP will not released, no money would have been exchanged but all pledgers will still receive a copy of my spoken word album to be released Aug-Sept 2014 ♡ ♡ ♡

Courage

Asked today how it feels in this earth suit (experiences). Cool question. I answered, “It feels lighter and happier identifying myself as my attention”…the essence of consciousness type thing or feeling which stems in my belief of #OneLove (One Creator) #OnePeople #OneEssence. It takes courage to maintain unity for we have to let go of our ego; Bringing down the walls and lifting our eye to see ourselves in each other, we feel we are One.

We are only competing with our self & judging-fear-arguing only limits our contentment ~ joy ~ abundance #embraceLOVE

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.”
Maya Angelou

One of my two mentors once said “Happiness is being able to laugh at ourselves”… Let’s forgive ourselves for our shortcomings & strive to overcome them
