Motivate yourself, every day, every moment of your life, to continue living with strength, goals, energy. Get up every morning with that sparkle in your brain that makes your heart, your muscles and bones get up, then you smile big knowing you are doing the right thing for you!

What are your dreams? No matter how big or small they are, they are your goals and if you are sure they are going to make you happy, then do not stop until you get them.

motivation dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico california usa global

You might want to become a scientist, or a writer, an artist, or maybe you really want a family of your own and make them happy and be happy yourself. You know, not all dreams are the same for everyone, and not all dreams and goals come at the same time in our lives. They vary, we change them and accommodate them as we live our experiences in life. The secret is to never stop chasing them.

I wish for all of you to accomplish what you want in life. I wish you absolute happiness, health, love, compassion, and prosperity in abundance. Live the life of your dreams. Let it be!

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: What About Humanism? Part 2

“Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.” — Kurt Vonnegut

Humanism is a way of thinking about the world. In modern times, humanism is close to secularism. It refers to a non-theistic approach to life, looking to science instead of religious dogma in order to understand the world. The term was made widely known by scientists in the mid-20th century.

A true Humanist lives according to the Golden Rule of Humanism, which means trying to empathize with other people, including those who may be very different from us, thinking differently from us, having beliefs we don’t have, etc.

“Humanists recognize that it is only when people feel free to think for themselves, using reason as their guide, that they are best capable of developing values that succeed in satisfying human needs and serving human interests:” Isaac Asimov
