Vegas pics and paying it forward














I Wanted to share some Vegas pictures. They are not that great as I didn't try for the perfect shots I just shot stuff as I walked around! Here's a picture of the Paris hotel from afar and pictures of the flamingo pool where I stayed (used to be a Hilton), and some shots of inside of caesar's/statues, people playing cards by the pool (of all things, geeze! take a break once in a while) and a pic of me and Dawn having happy hour at Margaritaville! Wish I could go back down today and repeat the whole weekend. HA!
Have you seen the movie, think it was called 'pay it forward'? Dawn and I were talking about how important it was to stay positive and how we should do good deeds for other people. So if someone needed some help or something, we would do the kind deed and hopefully they will in turn, be kind to someone else. First off, when we were just leaving the hotel room when I checked in. An older lady was running down the hall acting a little frantic. She said she couldn't find her family and didn't know which room they were in just that they were on the 28th floor. She had to pee bad and she wanted to use my bathroom. So, we let her though it felt weird as she was total stranger. Then, when we went to the elevators she just disappeared I suppose around a corner. Then, people at the pool wanted us to move our beach chairs. So, ok, we did to get them some sun time. We helped people with doors, took pictures, etc., etc. Just common courtesy stuff. I totally believe in karma and what goes around comes back around. If you do something nice for someone, sometime in the future something nice will happen to you. Maybe you think it's hokey but once I was in a job (about 5 yrs ago) I started that I hated and I was miserable and totally stressed. The boss was giving me crap and I was at wits end. That weekend I won a contest at a race track and picked the winning horse and then out of the hundreds of boxes of entries, I won a truck! So, since that day and going from really low one day and really high the next day, I think Karma works. Thinking postive can't hurt! I get tired of all the negativity in the world that's for sure.
I hope you all are having a good weekend and doing well on your healthy living plan!

Your right there is such a thing as karma, I certainly believe in it and you know I always feel great when I do a good deed, like I'm making a difference even though it is small. Love the photos, that pool looks divine

Karma is a wonderful thing.

Good deeds don't go unrewarded and bad deeds will see its day.

I really need to remember this.

Awww I miss Vegas! Glad you had such a good time, and I too believe in Karma. And I am definitely a half full person, which I believe helps in being positive and helping people.

My belief in life is "do unto others as you would have them do unto you", same as Pay it forward really. I always try to do a good deed every day, it doesn't have to be a biggie, just something nice or good for someone else. I am so jealous of your going to Vegas and other exotic places like that! I just got back from holidaying in Australia, which was awesome! Time to get back into it.

I almost like several of your Vegas shots more than my own. This photographic superiority will not be tolerated! ;-)
