Make Your New Year’s Resolutions With Self-Love for 2015!!
It often seems that with the new year come New Year’s Resolutions. They’re usually some variation of “work harder,” “try harder,” “do more” and “deprive yourself.”
I thought I’d share an excerpt from Kahlil Gibran’s beautiful and wise words about work from The Prophet.
. . . . Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man's hunger.
And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distills a poison in the wine.
Parenting Expert Worries for Jolie & Pitt's Gender-Bender Daughter
Monday, 29 Dec 2014 03:43 PM
"This child needs guidance. Maybe she sees her parents playing different roles and is dressed up and she's playing at a role, but as far as changing her name to John, it's ridiculous," Corso said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Parents need to guide and protect their children, and Brad and Angelina should not be considered trailblazing for parenthood at all. They live in the happy forest of Hollywood, let's say."
The superstar couple supports their blonde, blue-eyed daughter Shiloh's desire to be called John and wear masculine outfits.
Shiloh recently raised eyebrows as she attended the premiere of her mother's holiday blockbuster, the PG-13 movie "Unbroken," attired in a suit and sporting a boyish haircut.
Corso said that could be harmful.
"I’m all for diversity, but Angelina is running her crew like she's running a movie set. Okay, we need someone transgender, can we pull someone in?" Corso told host Steve Malzberg.
"It's very dangerous what she's doing. I really, truly, as a mom and a parenting expert, my heart goes out to this little girl."
Corso said Jolie's own gender history might play a part.
"Sometimes you have to look back at the parent's relationship with their own mother and father — and I know that Angelina in the news has been bisexual," she said.
"She has been seen French-kissing her brother on the red carpet. I mean, you're not dealing with the traditional mother like myself, so this does cause social and gender confusion."
Yet Shiloh's role-playing may be completely innocent, Corso says.
"She does have two brothers, and maybe she just wants to be one of the guys and maybe she sees the privileges that they're getting and she just might be one of the guys," Corso said.
"But again, I have to stress that this child needs to explore her own identity . . . in a private way."
In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Jolie said of Shiloh's tomboy style: “She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. So, it’s a suit with a tie and a jacket and slacks, or a tracksuit. She likes to dress like a boy.
"She wants to be a boy, so, we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
In a 2010 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Pitt explained: "She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So, it's a Peter Pan thing. So, we've got to call her John. 'Shi, do you want . . .' — 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, 'No!' "
Jolie, who has been married three times, is well known for her own gender bending on and off the screen.
She played a bisexual fashion model in the 1998 HBO movie "Gia." She was once hot and heavy with model Jenny Shimizu, saying in a 1997 interview with Girlfriends magazine: "I fell in love with her the first second I saw her."

How to Make It
Wallis, at age five, had to lie about her age to audition for her very first acting job—the starring role in Beasts of the Southern Wild—because the minimum age to be considered was six. She eventually beat out some 4,000 contenders for the role of Hushpuppy—the indomitable child prodigy and survivalist who lives with her dying father in the backwoods bayou squalor of Louisiana. Director Benh Zeitlin told The Daily Beast that when he auditioned Wallis, he immediately realized he had discovered what he was looking for, and changed the Beasts script to accommodate her strong-willed personality. Her reading ability, loud scream, and the skill of burping on command impressed the director and won her the part. Zeitlin has also stated that "It was just the feeling behind her eyes."
The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January 2012 to rave reviews, winning the Grand Jury Prize. In May 2012, Wallis flew to France for the premiere of the film at the Cannes Film Festival. The film received much acclaim and praise for Wallis' outstanding performance and it went on to win the prestigious Caméra d'Or award for Best first Feature Film. On January 10, 2013, at age nine, Wallis became the Academy Awards' youngest nominee for Best Actress and third youngest in all categories. However, she was just six during the filming. Wallis is the first African-American child actor to earn an Oscar nomination. She is also the first person born in the 21st century to receive an Academy Award nomination.
She had a role in Steve McQueen's Academy Award–winning film 12 Years a Slave (2013), alongside Lupita Nyong'o, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Brad Pitt. Also in 2013, she collaborated with Sundance for the second time on a short film called Boneshaker.
In 2014, Wallis played the title character in a remake of the musical Annie. For this, she was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress – Musical or Comedy. In May 2014, Wallis was named the face of Armani Junior, Giorgio Armani's line for children and teens. This makes her the first major child celebrity to be the face of a luxury bran)
We cried, sand and were entertained by the movie, it had heart and had a great lesson, to never give up hope or let life beat you down, Cameron Diaz was hysterical as Miss Hannigan.
3. You will feel a sensitivity that only a gay man can offer.
4.You don't have to worry about your boyfriend or husband getting jealous.
I have worked out with many trainers in my life, and I have come to the conclusion that a gay trainer is a woman's secret weapon. My favorite in NY is Peter Cirolia, a former American Ballet dancer (10 S Division St, New Rochelle 914-365-1862, www.BalletMuscle.com). A licensed personal trainer, health coach, and ballet master, Cirolia drew upon his 16 years of dancing and studying with The School of American Ballet to create a class that is very similar to the actual training used by the New York City Ballet. “This is a great way to get toned, aligned, and balanced—just like a professional dancer. I want to share what I love, ballet, and help people” he says. I attended Peter's ballet class, the vibration of excellence filled the room. I felt like I was a part of something bigger then me. I always say try something new and get out of your mind and into your body. This did it… I was a ballerina! I worked every muscle in my body, without lifting a weight or getting on the treadmill. Peter loves what he does and gives knowledge that could only be attained by his personal experience of dancing with the NYC Ballet. Peter has a method of combined personal training and ballet, which is genius, he calls it Ballet Muscle, I'm hooked!
