I AM READY TO TAKE BACK MY LIFE!

Boy, I’ll tell ya, when the Devil takes control of your life, everything and everyone around you becomes a nuisance. A bother. I have sat around long enough, blaming others for the way my life has turned out. It’s time to accept blame, and take action! Action to improve my Life!

I was brought up not wanting for anything. Both my parents worked excellent jobs, we had cars, homes, money, we traveled every year. I loved my life. Hmmm, Do I still love my life? NO! You know why? I let myself go. I always tend to settle for less instead of expecting the Best!

It is time that I surround myself with people that are expecting the Best that Life has to offer them, instead of with People that settle for less. I need positivity in my life, crossing out the negative. I will not let the Devil take control of my life ever again! MY TIME IS NOW!!!

The Dreams I once had as a child growing up, will come to pass in my adult life. I will Plan and work on them making sure that I put in the work so GOD can Bless me, annoint me.

I just felt the need to share my feelings, I think once I let my feelings out instead of keeping them locked away inside, I will begin to move on. My kids are my motivation, I am going to do all that I can to make a better life for them.

Weathering the Storm!!!

It’s Tuesday, and kind of gloomy outside, but I’m in a pretty good mood! I had a bit of a tiff with my son last night. He is getting to the point that he is not believing in GOD any more and that hurts me to my soul. I try to  instill in his mind that things  do not happen overnight, and it takes hard work to succeed. I had to explain to him, to look at my life: I am clearly not where I want to be, and why because of the faults that I made in life. I made wrong choices, I chose to take the wrong path instead of following the good and now I am reaping all that I sowed. Our argument became so heated!! I mean I got to the point of such great agitation and finally gave up. He wanted to sit there in front of me and tell me that sometimes he just wants to end his life!!! I am at my wit’s end!! I love my child to death and I am trying to give him positive words, but he ticked me off badly and I stated,”well if that is what you want to do, do it. I wash my hands with it all.” I know as a mother, that was so very wrong to do, and I asked GOD for help and also for forgiveness.

I have been trying to figure out why my son has this mindset. I don’t know if it’s because his father has not been in his life, or his step-father telling him at the age of 4 that he is not his real dad. I know sometimes, he will come and talk to me and is just really frustrated with his career. He has been on several auditions, with the same company and hasn’t been hired yet! He feels that it’s a waste of time now. I explain to him that trying to get yourself in the door in micks the mix at mjsunifc 2013 my babies and me MY KIDS WITH THE TALENTED MS JENNIFER BATTEN Hollywood is not easy. If it happens overnight it probably is not going to be worth it. He has such great talent, I want to share him with the rest of the world! I know in my hearts of hearts that he will get that acting gig, or be hired as a back-up dancer for a major artist. I am going to market him and his craft to its fullest potential. Some thing has messed up my son in a psychological way and I pray that GOD hears my cries and works this out with me and  for me.

I need help you guys…If any of you have any words for me, please share them..

Peace and Love from ME to YOU!!!

Monday Madness!!!!

Hello  Everyone! Happy Monday!

I know Mondays are like the worst days for some of us. It’s the Day after the weekend and that means our fun is over. I woke up this Morning feeling Blessed and very productive. I need to put the pen to paper and get things done. I spent my weekend attempting to build my son’s website, and helping my daughter with her Bakery. I like how we are all focused on getting our goals met. My son Mick’s did 3 amazing voice-over recordings over the weekend. I want to get those publicized, he has such great talent!

My daughter has been preparing menus for her bakery, and trying to perfect some of her flavors. She aims to have the bakery up and running successfully within 2 years..

 Good News Las Vegas, Ikea may be coming to our city! I have been living in Vegas for almost 11 years and I have been wanting an Ikea store here for the longest!!!I wonder what brought this move on?  Ikea is known for their Scandinavian designs and low prices. The only thing with IKEA is you have to assemble the products yourself.

Ikea was founded in 1943 by Ingvar Kampdar a Swedish Business Mogul. There are Ikea stores all over the WOrld! North America,Europe,Middle East,Asia  Pacific and the Caribbean.  Not sure on the opening date… When I find out more ,I will definitely share it with you.

Ok, is anybody out there feeling a certain way about the new VH1 reality show :DATING NAKED  I think this is going to be one of the most ridiculous shows ever! How could something like this even be brought to life! Whatever happened to getting to know someone, the inside of a person before seeing their private parts. What can be brought into the imagination if everything is sitting there hanging out! I don’t know, maybe I am a prude or something, but I definitely find this ridiculous and I wont be watching this show at all!

Well, That’s my Monday Blogging!!!

Peace and Smiles from ME to YOU!!!

THE BAD GETS THE GOOD AND THE GOOD STAYS THE SAME…….

Hey All!!! Happy Sunday! I’ve spent my weekend trying to instill in my sons mind, that anything that happens in his life, good or bad happens for a reason and if he just believes, anything that he strives for will come to life. He must do the work and he definitely has to believe. Well, we argued, for a good hour I would say. He tells me that he doesnt believe in the Bible or religion. He states that he believes in GOD but just not religion. Ok, I’m confused..how can you believe in one and not the other?

When things dont go his way, at the time he wants it too, he gets in this depressed state.How can I make my child see that things do not happen when he wants them too? He thinks by doing the wrong things, he will get what he wants. He states that everyday you read the paper or watch the news, those that reap rewards, reap them by doing bad things.
I want to pull al of my hair out by this point because he is adamant on believing that!
Whats bad about it is, I sometimes think that too. I had to start back reading my Bible, praying ,and believing because I do not want to turn towards the evil ways. I know that Satan manipulates people in to believing that the bad things they are doing are actually that of good. We have to know the difference in doing Good and Bad.
I am trying to find other ways to instill in my sons head, that GOD is good and he needs to believe…I could use all the prayers you all have for me. I need ghuidance and strength. I mean my son is so very talented! He just did a tape of voice overs and they are amazing! I wish I could share them with you all. Pray for me and my family that is all I ask.

Life is what you “Make it”!!!

Do you live up to these words? What you want out of life you have to make it happen! I am so glad and I am very proud to say that I am following one of the most amazing singers, on Twitter.. @ArikaKane has an amazing voice, and the sweetest personality ever!

 If you are a reality show junkie like myself; then you watch” Hollywood Exes”, and the starting song is “make it”. listen to the words, the truth is definitely spoken! go to ITUNES and support my girl!!!  Each and every time I listen to the song, it inspires me to make the most of  my life..To do each and every thing that I set out to do without worrying about what others think of me. I know I am just speaking on “MAKE IT” because that is the only song that speaks to me,but all the other songs on the CD are excellent!!! give them a whirl…

Peace,Love and Everlasting Smiles

Don’t Let the Losing Battle Win…..

You just lost your job. Your bills are piling up and you just don’t know how you are going to feed your family. The anxiety,the stress, and the depression starts to kick in.

Don’t let this downfall consume you. All you need to know is that; You are not alone! So many people are int he same predicament, can’t find work, filling out several applications and going to a ton of interviews just to find out you were not the best candidate and someone else got the position. Yes, i know it gets frustrating!! You get to the point where you just want to curl up and die. You think people start to look down on you, so many different emotions are going through you head. I am here to tell you, that it gets better!!!

Never giving up is a big part of the battle. If you are turned down for a position that you thought you were qualified for,so what, big deal! You know how I see that ,I see that as one door closes so a better one can open up. I had a friend that graduated from college with a masters, and had been trying to land a job in an advertising company. She didn’t have any luck, and had to work at a casino and she still hasn’t found a job where she can utilize her degree.. I am not saying do no go back to school, or finish school, I am saying that just because you have an education doesn’t mean there will be a job out there waiting for you. You are going to have to grind on a daily basis, and don’t take no for an answer.

Here is what you should do…If your resume is extensive, you have experience in several positions, that is a plus, but also remember that your volunteer experience adds to it as well. Say you volunteered at a hospital, or fundraising events, depending on what you did, you can place that on your resume as well.

You can take the knowledge that you already have and start your own business. Find that one thing that you love and do well.

I know I spoke about my friend having her Masters and still can’t find a job, but don’t let what I said deter you from going back to school! Go further your education, the more you know the better off you will be. Apply for Financial aid, don’t be embarrassed to do so. That’s what is wrong with a lot of people nowadays. They are embarrassed to seek help from The Government. Hey, that’s what it is there for!! Utilize all the assistance that is offered.

Also, while you are job searching, you must have a way to feed and clothe your family, pay a few bills, make sure they have medical insurance.. That is where Public assistance comes in handy. I am not saying to get on it, and stay on it! Don’t use it as a crutch! You it for temporary usage, until you get back on your feet.. It will happen as long as you DO NOT GIVE UP!!!!!

I have Faith in you….Have Faith in yourself!!! Let me know how it goes…You can send me an email msraqcisworld.com@gmail.com or leave a comment here!!!

REMEMBER…YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!!

PEACE AND LOVE FROM MS. RAQCI TO YOU!!!!

My Point of View

Good  Morning!!!

I know it has been a minute since I’ve posted on my blog,but I have been busy trying to get my Magazine underway,(which is coming along greatly, might I add).

Can you believe half of the year is gone!!! Boy time is really flying by!! I hope you are all doing all things positive and things that will make a great impact on your life and the world! There has been so much going on in my World lately. My brakes gave out on my Car, took to 3 different mechanics, and they all diagnosed a different problems, causing me to waste hundreds of dollars, then finally a friend of mine came diagnosed the issue, ordered the part and fixed the problem..Charging me only $100..How cool is that!! Did I lose my positivity while going through this, oh why yes I did!! I was bitter as hell!!! Then I had to think about the problem, placing it in GODS hands and let it go.

I have been busy trying to get my magazine going, trying to set my son(micksthemix is his YouTube channel) up with auditions, assisting my daughter with her bakery (ShaisBakery.com) She will be taking email orders and phone orders fairly soon, her website is still under construction and I am also working on my Gift Baskets.. It may seem like a lot but I believe if you don’t put your talents to use, you will lose them and never reach your full potential. Make sense? Granted some people are telling me that I am placing way too much on my plate, and I accept their opinions but politely tell them, I know when to stop if it gets too much, but for right now, this is GODs plan for me and I will follow his lead.

I am going to end my post here. I wanted to let you all know I was fine just very busy. I hope you all have been staying positive and working towards your goals..

PEACE and LOVE

from  Me to YOU!

Michael Jackson /Billboard Music Awards 2014…Will you be watching?

Good Saturday Morning Everyone,

The BillBoard Music Awards airs tomorrow night. I remember when i first moved to Las Vegas, i was attending each and every red carpet event that was held. I was so big on seeing Celebrities and taking pics with them, you could definitely call me star struck!. That was then this is now. I think of celebrities as people, people with just a lot more money and fame than others, but people. When I worked at a certain resort here in Vegas, I ran across so many celebrities, I wont mention names,(maybe down the road i will) but some were so very rude, acted like you had to bow down to them, and others were extremely nice.

Living in Vegas, you run into a lot of Celebrities and sometime you don’t even know it! I moved to Vegas in 2003, and on Nov 19 I was actually in Henderson NV, with my family when I heard on the Radio that Michael Jackson had just arrived at the executive airport and is now driving around in his motorcade. Trust me I desperately tried to find that motorcade! Unsuccessful, and I headed home. Anyway, what I am getting at is, Michael Jackson lived in Vegas for a long while, while I stayed in Vegas, and I had no idea!!! Am I kicking myself in the butt for not following up on his whereabouts? Yes I am!

Michael Jackson was such an extraordinary person! He put such a positive and indented mark on the music scene, that it may have been attempted, but never rectified, to replace him. No one else (in my opinion) can replace the King of Pop! So when people ask me if I am going to watch the BBMA, because there is supposed to be a Hologram of the Late Great King of Pop.. If done correctly, yes I would love to see it, but if it is portrayed the way Cirque  did him in their show, I wont be too happy. I have mixed feelings, because on one hand, it would be wonderful to have him acknowledged in such a way, but then on the other hand it would be very sad to see. I won’t deny it, I am going to probably watch the Awards, and post my opinion on it the next Day…

Enough already Mr. Sterling!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!!!

   Even though I am in the best of mood, I feel a bit compelled to speak on The Anderson Cooper/Donald Sterling interview,that aired last night. Every time I feel a little smpathy for this man, he says something else, that pulls him deeper in the mud. 

  I know everyone has the right to speak whatever they want, that is why we have Freedom of Speech, but come on, when will such hatred end? To me, to hate someone because the color of their skin is downright ridiculous! Maybe this is not the case with Sterling and Johnson, but from everything i’m hearing from the interview, I think Mr. Sterling does have a spark of racism in his soul.

 When the tape of Sterling speaking to V. Stiviano was released, I felt sorry for him, and thought that she did this just to squeeze more money out of him. He didn’t use the N—- word, so I didn’t think he was a racist at all. I just thought well hey, he’s an older man, who likes this young lady quite a bit, and feels a bit intimidated by her associating with young successful and very rich African american men!

 Now, listening to this Anderson Copper interview,  I am starting to think otherwise. There is some type of dislike toward Magic Johnson..I don’t think he has it out for all (AA) just Johnson. In my book, he(Sterling) spoke with such a malicious intent toward Johnson. First of all, how could he bring out Johnson’s health issue, and speak of it incorrectly!!! Come on Mr. Sterling, have some type of compassion!! Sterling also spoke on how African Americans don’t help others out when they become successful ..Mr. Sterling how wrong could you be!!! Michael Jackson (rest his soul) did so much for so many different charities!!! He had a heart of Gold, so please do not place all Blacks in the same category. 

 Mr.Sterling I think you need to just take a seat for a minute, think about the things that you say,before you let them flow from your lips.

Well guys, I think that’s about it for now..Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start!!!

Peace and Love from ME to YOU!!!
