Do you say THANK YOU to the people who are close to you often enough?

Do you say THANK YOU to the people who are close to you often enough?

Do you thank someone who is closest to you often enough?

We all say “Thank you” to people in public occasions always.
We all say “Thank you” casually in casual occasions.

But do you say “Thank you” to the people who are closest to you often? Sincerely?
Not just words, do you show them that you are thankful?
So many people today tend to forget how much your closest person do things for you. Person who is closest to you do things for you everyday as almost like routeing in your life for you, so you may not see how much this person do things for you as much as you should.

Think about it, your mother, seems like everyday thing in your life, but through out your life, how much things she has done for you? Your wife/ husband, think about how she or he take care of you? As long as two people share life together, there is something that your partner do things for you. Your best friend, your sister, your brother, your co-worker, whoever that close someone is to you, as close as they are, don not forget to say “Thank you”. If not everyday, then once a while, take your moment and make a special occasion to show them that you are thankful.

You will never know how much that person can feel by your sincere thank you.

and things will always goes around and comes around. No matter how long it takes to come back to you, it will come back to you. So spread smile and positive words starting from someone who is close to you.

THANK YOU.

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
― John F. Kennedy

“Difference in our lives”, people think about this person who make a difference is to be someone who strongly inspire them someway at special occasion. But think… every person who is close to you and share your life with you makes a difference in your life. 🙂

So say THANK YOU and give a hug and kisses to someone who is close to you and have been there for you.

and Thank YOU for reading this. 🙂

It’s such busy internet based world. I appreciate that you took a moment to read this small post in your precious time.

If there is no money in this world…

there will be no hunger, no poverty, a lot less crimes, more peace in the world, we can simply be ourselves, we can focus better to use our individual talent to help people and this world. It will also create healthier environment for our planet. 

It seems like almost impossible to create the world with no money or such thing today. People will be lost if money disappear. There will be no business like it exists now. Almost everything we do is based on money. We will not have to do anything we do for work. Whole school system will be changed. (now school is more focusing on educating children to have basic knowledge in our society and to work), There will be no technology war like now. Life may seem inconvenient without money. 
But… It still may be better without money for our future. 
Money centered human society came too far and it keeps going further and further where today it is hurting not only human community, it is hurting whole planet. Global warming, Animal extinction crisis, serious pollution, radiation problems, producing enormous amount of waste, using up all precious natural resources… and just so much more.

We are straight on our way to destroy this world.

We need to wake up now and take this seriously. I am sad when I talk about this kind of matter, people look at me funny.
Why?

Most of people close their eyes and act like there is no such thing as global warming.

Most of people think animal extinction has nothing to do with them.

Yes, every single person has something to do with animal extinction, global warming, pollution and all that environmental problems. People are too busy working and focusing on money, materials, career and surviving in our human box society. Most of people are too busy working not to spend enough time with and pay full attention to their own children.

Only if every single person can be aware about this global problem that is destroying our planet(our life source, our future) and focus more on to take care of our home(our planet) and our children. Only if everyone can see most important thing is to focus on taking care of children and our home, our environment, this beautiful planet.. 

Every children has possibilities to become Future Presidents.

Here is original video of our project, Future Presidents that involves teen Star Zendaya Coleman, Presiden Jimmy Carter, Celebrity Children and beautiful diverse children from all around America.

We are here just trying to make it happen.

Only 4 more days left until end of our project campaign! Once this campaign ended, there are no more free video offers, Kickstarter Polaroid images from the locations to you, amazing packages of Kickstarter only rewards and much more.

This project can be huge and we want more people to be part of us and help us inspiring people around the world. Zendaya joined us. President Jimmy carter supported us. So many beautiful families Support us.

We will donate to Spina Bifida foundation once this book is published also. Supporting children with disability.

Starting from now, let’s begin doing something positive for our children, for our future. Stop being too busy for youself. Save your energy and attention for our children. Anything positive we do for others, it will come to us in positive way.

I believe in this project and only 4 days left on our campaign, I will not give up and I believe in our possibilities just as I believe in our children’s unlimited possibilities.

Future Presidents: An Invitation to Parents to Help Their Children Make History

Every now and then a great project comes along that’s so family oriented people can’t help but get involved. One of the country’s leading commercial photographers, Matthew Jordan Smith is leading the way with Future Presidents, a project to capture the goals and aspirations of children from each state in the nation.

The best part of this project is the excitement of the children and hearing their goals and aspirations.-Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2013

If there was a way to help children be part of a history making project, wouldn’t every parent want to know about it? Welcome to Future Presidents, a project that brings Disney’s Zendaya Coleman and President Jimmy Carter together with thousands of families across the United States.

Children across the country are getting involved in the Future Presidents Project. Acclaimed photographer Matthew Jordan Smith is interviewing and photographing kids in each state asking them to weigh in on Presidential issues, and what they would do as President themselves. Their answers are inspiring, humorous and give an interesting perspective on their view of the world.

Scheduled to be released at the end of this year, the book will be an intriguing read and window to the thoughts of the future leaders of our country. The book includes an introduction by Zendaya and an incredibly powerful quote by President Jimmy Carter written exclusively for the book, Future Presidents.

“The kids I’ve met in this project are truly inspiring,” Smith says, “and it’s been humbling to hear the stories of their families and their hopes for America.”

Smith is searching each state for families to photograph for the project. He makes the kids feel like stars, something his career as a photographer includes, having worked with Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, Vanessa Williams and Zendaya, just to name a few. In many of the interviews, he involves parents and grandparents (many of whom are immigrants to the U.S.) who also share their hopes for their children and the country. Smith has just 18 states left to finish, and has a Kickstarter page to help complete the project.

“Americans have been overwhelmingly supportive and I’ve heard so many wonderful stories, I wish I could include many more in the book,” Smith says, “That’s why we’ve created the opportunity for all children to share their stories via the Internet.”

How People Contribute: Parents can simply use a poster board to express their children’s dreams to be President, and photograph them holding the poster. No need to be a professional photographer– a camera phone is adequate (tip: lots of light will make the writing easier to read). Then they need to share the pictures on the project’s Facebook page or on Pinterest using the hashtag #FuturePres/

The accumulated online images will be a powerful testimonial to the growing generation. Each day, Smith will feature the most powerful image as the Facebook cover page.

Ever since he was a twelve year old, Matthew Jordan Smith’s passion has been telling stories with photographs. He is now one of the most sought after commercial photographers in the world. The Future Presidents Project will be his third book, along with Sepia Dreams,: A celebration of Black Achievement Through Word and Images, and Lost and Found (The Microsoft Mission Series.)

Future President, Talen

One more week left on our campaign! I have this cuuuuuuuuuuute boy, Talen, as our little presidents! While we were having meeting… he was everywhere.lol I remember I could not help myself keep photographing him as he moves everywhere around our seat. He was too little to speak but he was sure not too little to play with cell phones!(Technology kids!) and the way he holds and get on the phone, he was just like president! No matter which president, EVERY PRESIDENT has their childhood just like Talen. Every president used to be a child and being playful filled with curiosity and ambition. Something to make everyone smile and warm their heart for the weekend! 🙂 My personal page special behind the scene of Future Presidents! 😉

Support Talen to be the Future Presidents!
