Tag: don’t be greedy
What constitutes fun to you?
Work, play, spending money, making money, making friends, helping others! What about sharing in God’s Blessings with friends and family? How about doing for the community and sharing God’s family and talents with each other? What if it ends up costing rather than making money? Is it still fun? Or, could it be all of the above?
Entertainment is a serious business! If you don’t believe me, think about all the money that goes into the production of American Idol, Next Top Model, Hell’s Kitchen, etc…. Then think about all the money that is made….it’s serious money!
But that is what you see on tv. That is what drives the networks.It’s all about money and viewership. It isn’t about helping the economy. Sure you get a few winners and a few million is given away, but who does it help?
What about all of the local organizations that get together to help each other out while competing for your hard earned money and time!
Time is short and money is tight for everyone. But if you have a roof over your head, food in the cupboard, a computer, cell phone or even a job – count your blessings! Pass those blessings on.
I look around on the news and see disaster and destruction with a few positive human interest stories thrown in between and realize how fortunate I am – unemployed and all!
So I share the following to make the world a better place:
- Find a cause;
- Give of time and money;
- Share your resources;
- Don’t be greedy;
- Trust God,
- Spread the word!
Look, I am not telling you what to do, I am merely suggesting how we can make this a better place. If I am on the couch watching who the next top model will be or trying to figure out who I love to hate – then I am not helping out in my community. In other words, don’t think less of self but think of self less!
Think about it, what if your family lived in Haiti, Mexico, needed a transplant, or just some blood – wouldn’t you like it if some helpers were there for you? That is all I am saying – you are already great – but let’s be great together to make this a better place to live….
At least be an organ donor – It could be the last great thing you do!
I will tell you why – because LFTV is involved with a film project in San Antonio and a bunch of us got together to help bring awareness to the project…”The Way Out!”
Some made money. We didn’t – in fact we gave our booth away so others could make money. It took, time energy and lost income. And it was hot!
But guess what….It was a blessing. We made new friends, heard great music, took part in a Red Carpet and my daughter got to hang out in the pool all day! So special thanks go to Brandy Lopez, Rene Salazar, Ruben Resendez, Hot Henrietta, Cleto Rodriguez, Lisa Johnson, Mystic Knights, Coach Lowry, Network for Young Artists, Gill Jimenez, Javier Covarrubias, A First Class Limousine AUEDA, the San Antonio Film Council, SA Film Works, all of the Clarion staff, Fashion Group International (San Antonio), the models, Jesus Alvarez, Free Apartment Locators, Next Day, Yung Fyngas, Canela, Victoria Acosta, Ruben Acosta, Danny de la Paz, Jesse Borrego, Johnny Bibbs and everyone else…Forgive me if I left anyone out…
And Boy – it was a scorcher too. So many special thanks again – thanks to all and may God Bless all of those who helped here and who help around the world within their community.
It will pay dividends in the end and God always pays back. Remember, You cannot out-give God!
