Twilight Landing at LAX Cockpit View (VIDEO) feat Peter Gabriel Remix



Love I get so lost, sometimes

days pass and this emptiness fills my heart

when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are



Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking, welcome to Los Angeles.Landing at LAX International Airport via the SADDE Six Arrival.

How to Feel Better When You're Feeling Down





1) Accept the negative feelings.
The key to this is not to deny what we are feeling, but rather to lean into our feelings, even if they are painful. Take a moment to be mindful and narrate: "I'm feeling anxious right now," or, "This situation is making me tense." Hang in there with unpleasant feelings at least long enough to acknowledge them.
This is the gist of emotion coaching kids: We help them label what they are feeling, and we validate that their feelings are okay. With younger kids, the challenge is helping them understand that while bad feelings are always all right, bad behavior never is. Be crystal clear about this. For example, it is totally okay that your child is feeling jealous and hateful toward her sister. At the same time, it is never okay to hit her.
2) Problem solve.
What did you learn from that embarrassing situation? What can you do to improve a difficult situation tomorrow? Who else can help? Who do you need to forgive before you'll feel better? Put a plan into place.
3) Let goMove onTry to feel better.
This means that we make a genuine effort to cultivate happiness, gratitude, hope or any other positive emotion; researchers call this "deep acting."
Faking a smile or other pleasantries to cover our negative emotions (what researchers call "surface acting") without actually trying to change our underlying negative emotions will often make us feel worse rather than better. But when we genuinely try to feel more positive -- when we do try to change our underlying feelings -- we usually end up feeling fewer negative emotions and more positive emotions.
Most often, moving on means distracting ourselves or our children from the situation. We need to leave the scene of the crime, so to speak. In my next post, I'm going to give you a nice long list of techniques that my kids and I use to keep ourselves from overthinking difficult situations, and to move on when we want to feel better.
What negative situations do you find yourself overthinking? Do you notice your children ruminating about certain situations?

" Not Just What You Say" (VIDEO)


Not just what you say {It's mostly what you do}
Not a game that you play {To keep the winning hand with you}
Not just wasting time {With empty words that don't mean much}
Not just how you feel {When others need your tender touch}
So can you take out some time {To help somebody else in need}
And when this is done {The love of God is truly seen}
Then above all {We need to cover and forgive}
Then we can act like we know what love is


Not just what you say
Then we can act like we know what love is...
[Verse 1:]
When you say how are you doin'
Do you really wanna know
And are you concerned, yeah
And if you had the solution
But it took some of your time or some cash or whatever
Are you willing
[Chorus:]
Not just what you say {It's mostly what you do}
Not a game that you play {To keep the winning hand with you}
Not just wasting time {With empty words that don't mean much}
Not just how you feel {When others need your tender touch}
So can you take out some time {To help somebody else in need}
And when this is done {The love of God is truly seen}
Then above all {We need to cover and forgive}
Then we can act like we know what love is






[Verse 2:]
Love is compassion
That makes you reach way down
And help your fellow man
So if there's a need
And you can be the one
Go and help someone
 [Chorus]
 Love is all, all in all
Forgiving faults great and small
Patient and willing to
Cover me, cover you
Love is kind don't you know
And will not seek its own
God is love forever more
Act like you know go handle yours

Part of where I'm going, is knowing where I'm coming from







L.A. #Earthquake . . Be Prepared






  • Southern California has about 10,000 earthquakes each year, though most are so small that they are never felt.

  • Of those, 15-20 are greater than magnitude 4.0.

  • Large earthquakes create an aftershock sequence that can produce many additional earthquakes of all magnitudes for many months.

  • Earthquakes can occur in any type of weather - cold, hot, rainy or dry. There is no such thing as “earthquake weather.” so earthquake preparedness should be 24/7.

  • The San Andreas Fault is not a single, continuous fault, but rather a fault zone consisting of many different segments. Its fault system is more than 800 miles long.

  • Most earthquakes occur at depths of less than 50 miles below the Earth’s surface.

  • Only four states Florida, Iowa, North Dakota and Wisconsin have not had earthquakes in the past 30 years.

  • Alaska is the most earthquake-prone state, with a magnitude 7 quake or greater occurring nearly every year.

Is The Internet Changing Your Brain?


Is the internet bad for our brains?

Is it affecting our ability to remember things, form meaningful relationships, or make decisions? 

How is it beneficial? Isn't having so much information at our fingertips a good thing?

I think it's important to remember that in science, answers to questions like these are rarely straightforward. Without a doubt the time we spend online changes our brains, but then again, so does everything we do. 

Our brains are highly plastic, meaning that external experience shapes our neural structure and function. But exactly how the Internet induces those changes is still something of a mystery.
