I love a daily message I recieve and today's was so thought-provoking I wanted to share it.
 The things that we would be asking ourselves is, "What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary? And what percentage of my day am I ornery, irritated, frustrated, or blaming?" And you don't have to do 100%, you don't have to do 90%, you don't have to do 80%.

jrooseveltkwcom: Does buying or renting make more sense for you? Janice Roosevelt, Keller Williams Real Estate, PA & DE - 01/03/12 06:07 AM
If the two have you have hitched your dreams to one star, then buying a home rather   than renting could make sense, especially if you are living in southeastern Pennsylvania or northern Delaware.
Yes, mortgage rates are historically low, and yes, inventory is high, and if you plan to be around for another 5 years, then you could actually SAVE $$$.
Renting is really a short-term investment plan. Renting would be good if you plan to stay for 5 years or less.Buying however; can mean a sense of financial security, as property, over time, appreciates.

http://youtu.be/O8K9AZcSQJE
http://youtu.be/O8K9AZcSQJE
Michel Hazanavicius's warmly nostalgic film The Artist, about the waning career of a silent film idol, Gerge Valentin, in the Hollywood of the 1920s, is enough to want you to put on a ball gown or tux and your best dancing shoes. It is the season's  must see. It's been called as innovative as Avatar, but in the opposite direction.
It, too, is in black and white with a sumptuous orchestral score, twisting and turning between amusing site gags and touching scenes of pure acting brilliance- not with dialogue but with face and gesutre. Two American star, James Cromwell as Valentin's chaffeur and John Goodman … (6 comments)

jrooseveltkwcom: Does home ownership matter to you? Janice Roosevelt, Keller Williams Real Estate, PA & DE - 12/27/11 01:55 AM
What bearing does home ownership really have on the economy? Is it hype and materialistic “hoohaw” as my grandfather might have said.  Does in matter in your community? Maybe we should just become a country of renters.
Certainly home ownership  matters in my community, where the quality of public schools, the kinds and number of jobs, and the overall quality of life are impacted.
In the U.S., for every two homes sold, one job is created and each purchase generates as much as $60,000 in economic activity over time.
Right now, there is a debate in federal government regarding … (7 comments)
