to someone and they visit the site and buy something using their giftcard and get items for
nothing out of their purse. I thought it would be a great idea and something I have needed
to be added to the site for quite awhile now.
Got ideas for ebook I am thinking of putting together. About getting nail polish out of stuff
will keep you up to date on that. Any way its really really late and I need sleep..

Check this site out because GUESS WHAT? Got Coffee has become
famous! WE can now be seen here as well as Beauty-Blog..Thoughts
of Beauty is here as well!! Thoughts of Beauty is on the second page
with Got Coffee is on the first. Did you see my cute little logo?
I created it myself just for Glam!!
Monday, November 06, 2006
I have finally made it! This is the greatest thing that has ever happen to me ok one of them.. I got lucky being the only one who carries Mood Changing Nail Polish and as well Magic Lash Eyelash Enhancer and now I become part of the Glam network!!
Don't worry I won't become too big for my pants and not stay who I am which I have seen happen to others. You know what I mean, they get a better job than you and all of a sudden you are not good enough to be their friend or they start going out to lunch with a different set of people who are now their friends and you not having the right job are not invite into their new group. That won't happen to me I love my Coffee Blog Readers!!
Besides that a few things happen that I need to say something about. First off my oldest son now has his first girlfriend (WOOT!!!) but last week her only brother took his own life by setting in front of a train at 4:00 am. The young man was having problems after trying to turn around his life by getting off drugs, drinking and smoking. He tried to take it all on without help from Doctors which can be the worse thing as we found out. I never got to meet the young man but Derek did and its been hard on him as well as Liz his girlfriend. I feel the most sorry for his Liz's Dad who had a fight with Josh the night he took his life. He is feeling like its his fault when we all know thats not true. This family someday become part of ours so we are here for them. Liz feels like I am her Mother in Law already..
May Josh rest with Peace in the arms of the our Lord..

I been working on saving my hands again. It seems my hands are older than I am these days, so I do work on simple things like Cell Phone Bags to pass the time away while I think about writing. I work with my hands and think about articles I want to write about it. It seems if my hands are busy then I think a bit clearer. Am I the only one who does things like this I wonder?
Anyway got a friend who wants to see what I have been working on and since I am thinking about selling these, I want your thoughts about these as well. I super dig this yarn!! Its out of Japan really fun to work with. I can't remember the name of it but I am going to get more today so I will be able to tell you want it is later on today. I do not change this yarn the colors you see is part of the yarn itself. That is why I think its so cute! Every Cell Phone Bag I make with this yarn will never been the same. Each Cell Phone Bag handcrafted with this yarn will not be the same.
My question to you is, what would you pay for a Cell Phone Bag that will always be an original?
Your Bag will never be the same as anyone else's! I have patterns for butterflies and flowers that I can make out of beads as well. To really make it yours! May even make it so I can put your name on it in beads. I got ideas, what do you think of my work?
I have given up on contests for a while at least. Here I am willing to give away a FREE TAMZ thats so neat but no one is willing to play along with my little game. Its simple, go to the store, find Oct 2006 Shop Etc magazine. Look close to the back for a page that has the image of TAMZ on it. Tell me the page number and guess what? The TAMZ is yours!
What is so hard about that? TAMZ is great for those who have baby fine hair that are forever standing up no matter how much hair spray you put on them. Its great to use on your bangs to get them to lay flat against your forehead so as to hide a high forehead. Its to great for helping keep your hair parted with making the top hairs lay flat. NOW?? Does anyone want to play along with my little game? If you find the page TAMZ is YOURS!!

I am thinking of doing more reviews as I get products to try out. I get some from other website owners who would like to offer their products on my website. I got Olivella that way. They contacted me and asked if I would be interested in offering their skin care line. It's smells like you are in a spa everytime I use it. And when I had hand lotion I would share it with others and thats the reaction I got from as well. Oh darn now I can't do that one. OH well..
Anyone has something they want me to review well its time to speak up! Ok its really super late and I got emails to answer. So stop on by Beauty-Blog by me and see what I thought about the body wash and body lotion/

I am putting together a ebook of a few of my best
articles including Let's Create Sultry Smoky Eyes. I will also have in the ebook How does one defined the meaning of Beauty? ebooks, one will be Free and the other one will have my article about Marilyn Monroe's Beauty Secrets and that one will be for sale. You are hearing about it here first! I am still deciding on the price because it wasn't that easy to figure out what her beauty secrets may of been.
I came across the funniest quote that just fits this blog:
DRINK MORE COFFEE: So you can do more stupid things faster! ~ Unknown
Well boys and girls, whats you think, fit this blog? LOL ok ok I think its funny I don't know why I just do. I ran across some really cool images that fit smoky eyes makeup.. So you tell me aren't these the most beautiful smoky eyes you ever did see? I have another one that is just amazing as well! They are all the same girls eyes and she is beautiful as you can see.

player at this SEO Companies. AT the tune of $1000.00 he can fix everything that I seem to
be doing wrong. Why do they think that just because I am not a major player yet that I
need someone to come and save me? After chatting with him, it gave me such a bad taste in
my mouth. Even after I told him I needed to go get ready for work he kept on talking.
He went down to $500.00 to do these reports that will tell me everything I am doing wrong
and he will be my white knight and fix it. HA I bet that every much that he can or will.
He is pushing a few keywords on his computer and printing out reports..oh I see I can do that
too, you think someone will pay me $500.00 to do I wonder?
If I could warn you on who this was I sure would but I can't because they have money and I
don't.. And if I need I could lose everything for a blog post so I won't. Just be warn that if
someone contacts you about how wrong you are doing everything, be careful anyone can be
on the first page of Google and anyone can be number 1 and GUESS WHAT??? You can do
it without help or paying some a ton of money for a maybe.
Start writing articles, hook up with MSN adcenter and do their PPC.. Talk to the great guys over at EngineSeeker.com.. At these they are good and true to their word. This other one
well now that I am doing everything wrong... why don't you pay me for the right to fix it?
Gee there goes the neightborhood!

The website is in Chinese but if you can check out the image!
I just thought it was just funny to see a mouse on a toad! :D
It looks like the mouse sitting on the toad probably being saved
from the water but who knows. Its Wednesday and I was looking
within the links that visit my website Overallbeauty.com
One of the links was from the website so being the nosy person
I can be I had to see why. And thats how I found a mouse sitting on a toad. So I have a strange sense of humor.. Get over it!!
Do have a great Wednesday everyone!!

So I am so glad it was a holiday day weekend out someone could of bought my domain name out from under me and I would of never known why or how it could of happen. Talk about scary!!
So I finally found out the problem and I went ahead and paid for 3 years cause Overallbeauty is MINE!!
OK OK so maybe I am over reacting but think about this, how would you feel if you did all this work and found that your domain name is no longer yours? What does one do if somehow someone buys out your domain name because you didn't have the correct email with the company that holds your name? BIG NOTE: Never use a email address you don't check often when you sign up and buy anything super important!
So I finally got all that taken care of, I still have a major problem with shopping carts and ummm FAKE credit cards! But I send everyone who was hit by that their money back and I hope I never have to do that again, but thats part of being online, sometimes you get hit with fake cards because that other person isn't honest. I feel most sorry for those who didn't know that their imformation is out there being used for God knows what. I had to return money, so what? They got their private information being used to buy things from small companies like me. But the bad guys didn't get their Magic Lash, or Body Butter because I knew when I saw the missing information that I used to make sure as I can that the true owner is using that card. I saw things missing and I stop the orders. I also contacted the Police about it.
Thats just not something I want to mess with. So anyone out there who thinks your getting something FREE from me is out of your goddamn mind!!! HA!
I started a real J-O-B so I am behind is things but I know what I need to do, I have a mountain of email to go play with, so you all have a great week!!

I had to get a job because my youngest son is now driving a new car to him anyway with me as the co signer . If he misses a payment that car is mine! So I got a REAL Job. I had to close my ebay store, at least my website is paid up till the end of the year but I think its time to really think about the costs of hosting.
When you pay less you get problems like I have right now. I have no way of getting my host till Monday and even then its a maybe because Tuesday is July 4th. Talk about fu*ked! I think what I am going to have to do is start looking into a host that I pay every month more and maybe I will get the service I need. I guess its better now its a problem being down and not at Christmas but there is no real good light to this. Its the third time in Three Days and its still down now. I think its been down for over 24 hours and I can't do a damn thing about it!
Got any thing to make my day worse?

older man. OK that is the worse thing that could happen to any young lady/ or any women
at any age. When it happens you blame yourself but at 14? Her mother is one:
Out for money
Should of been watching her daughter more
and I pray she doesn't have anymore.
They are suing for 1 percent of what My Space is worth because her daughter can't read. It says
on My Space Do Not give out personal information! They talked on the phone so right there
that proves she didn't read. They went out to dinner and she went home with him. What did you
think he was after? He is some freak that wants something young. Thats so wrong! What is
happening to him? Is the mother suing him as well? Or only My Space because there is lots of
money being made there?
Look, I am a parent. I think its worse for the teen right now because the whole world of the web knows you went home with him, and you had sex with him and now you are calling it rape.
Your mother is suing My Space. How hard it must be for that young lady right now. She is dealing with the fact she had sex at 14 and it was her first time well that will be even harder to deal with. BUT if it wasn't then could she be calling it rape because he made her go home and not stay with him? Think about it the only reason men want to meet girls is for sex.
The blame is on the wrong person, the one to blame in all this is her mother. She didn't have control over her daughter. Now I know what we all will do to push the limits with our parents I am not that old to not remember what I did. But my mother pushed back harder! For every action there is a reaction.
We may as well just lock up the web because there are freaks out there that prey on young ladies and young men every damn day.
I think her mother should be looking at herself and start blaming the right person, and its not My Space, its the Mother. Get that child into see a doctor and help her heal from all this.
I think the case should be thrown out and the person to sue is the guy not My Space.
Comments? I would love to hear what you have to say on this.
Question for everyone out there: Who is really should be blamed for all this and should she be sueing?

Father’s Day Gifts From the Heart
Why is it so hard to find a gift for Dad? With Mother’s Day there are gift ideas all over the place. With flowers, candy, candles, cards , gift baskets and so on. But what about dear old Dad, what’s in a holiday for him?
By the time Father’s Day is here everyone usually runs out and buys him a tie, or socks or cuff links, nothing original about these gifts. Every Dad has a drawer filled with gifts he will probably never use but won’t throw away cause it was a gift from you.
This Father’s Day how about doing something a little different? You can even get your small children in on helping create a Father’s Day he will never forget.
A few craft ideas that you can create with your children are items like Best Dad Certificate, or a picture frame with a drawing that the child creates. How about take a shoe box and paint it and put little coupons in it for things a child is willing to do beyond Father’s Day?
The shoe box can be painted, or you can take pieces of colored paper and glue it on. The idea is what is in the shoe box that means the most. Every Dad has a list of things he wants when he is at home. Some want quiet, or a child’s bedroom clean, or toys picked up or dishes done after dinner. Little things that should be done anyway but just don’t seem to happen. Usually Quiet time is the hardest because he just got home from work everyone wants to tell him what they did etc.Read the rest at either place: http://searchwarp.com/swa68700.htm
Check out the ribbon which means I have a Featured Article. Happy Father's Day !

The only day that must be pretty lonely for some Dad's. If you click on the right hand side there is a page called Coupon Book Ideas for Dads.
The reason for that file is because I was thinking of gifts we could give Dad without costing money. Or be like everyone else, a tie, a nice shirt how boring!! So I came up with a coupon book you could give Dad AND Mom these ideas are just for small children and teenagers. You will have to come up with your own Coupon Book, ;)
Have a good one!

You really need to get Serjame's CD and its AMAZNG the work
he has put into it. I know he is working on his website and I think I should give the
guy a break. After emailing back and forth answering his web design questions,
I have to change my mind about it.
I had at first been a bit hard of the guy and he is trying so hard. I should of waited till I
gave the guy a chance. Everynow and then we all know I can jump the gun and be a bit
mean when I really shouldn't. No one perfect, even me. AT first I will abit his site was ugly
but you know that are sites out there that are so ugly they make everyones eyes just hurt. Those sites are covered with banners and yuck! His site was black and had one picture that was waving. I know he is working so hard and I need to remember that not everyone is at the level of education with webdesign and there is tons of stuff if I had the time I would change on mine as well.
AT least when I emailed him and told my friends to check out his site we all have given him ideas
on how to show the beauty he has to share, have it show on his website.
BUT Serjame he and I started emailing back and forth and he is a super neat person!! I should
have my fingers spanked for words that you see I removed. I had no right and I do hope he
will forgive me.
When my site when up omg its was bad! I had a double site going because I didn't know how to up date PHP cause you can't update PHP like you can HTML. But it was before blogs are big and no one noticed my little pink site. I still get told that Pink is the worse color for a website and I have to disagree. So to each there own.
You all need to keep an eye on his website because I know that when he is done with it you will be begging him for his CD. I did buy it and I went through it and I learn a few new things when I did.

I keep getting hits from this website and I couldn't figure out why.
OK OK I was wondering before morning coffee... so give me a bit of a break..In fact I am having a iced Latte.. created with coffee #5100 from the The Natural Co-op that I am member of, Silk creamer from in fact in Hazelnut (if need to have something Lactose Free like me ) Splenda in the yellow packages the only time I watch my waist line from growing is in my coffee. Don't ask my mom does so I do..
Ok now that I have my coffee I can quit being a duh head..
This blog is own by the creaters of Bonicca and Kim one of the co-owners is one of the neatest people I have ever got to be business with.
In fact she knows how much I am trying to create the best body scrub that she gave me some ideas to use my roses that you know about..Ya its that time of year again..Look out my window and what do you see.. Pretty Pink and white roses waving in the light wind..I even have a couple of deep reds and my Purple tiger that I am so damn proud of is doing her thing this year as well.
Bonicca is the cream of natural skin care. They are the best I could ever offer and I even started using it mostly now. I still love my Peeptoad Hollow Body Polish but the body lotion is now all Bonicca.
I love being able to offer all that I do. If you look on this page down at the bottom you see my table from the bank! Yea and I going to do that again in July!
I am going to go back to work I am listening to some New New Age music that I hope to be able to add to Ovderallbeautybykim.com when I get her all done and ready to show her off. I want to add more natural Yoga music and more to her.
Wednesday, April 19, 2006
I offer Bonicca Organic Spa Lotion on my website still its super cool to see it somewhere else! They a vegan Shower Dream because they aer ethically sound..what line do you know thats happens to be 100% vegan and use 70% organic botanicals? I happen to love their Bamboo Flower and you can see that there are others who need something that is pure and not use any animal in them. Just thought you might like to know.

The blue glitter mascara is really cool for anyone, I have used it myself! Visit Overallbeauty.com for more deals on Glitter Mascaras.

Its getting to be that time of year again when its time to start showing off your pretty toes again.
Have you got your pedicure yet? If so I got some great colors of mood nail polish you should be checking out this year. With pink being the color for now at least, have you ever tried Hot Pink to Lite Pink Mood Changing Nail Polish? The first time I ever saw mood nail polish I had got pick up Hot Pink to Lite Pink and I tried it out on my toes but I also like glitter too so you can do this neat little trick.
Go ahead and put on to layers of Hot pink to Lite Pink mood changing polish and then over it as a top coat put on either Fushsia Glitter to pink Glitter or Red Glitter to Clear Glitter and what that
does is when your toes are warm all you see is lite pink with little glitter but when your toes are cold you see bright pink with Glitter.
I really dig the wearing the two polishes together like that cause you are changing up the color of the pink and you get glitter with it.
If you don't have either Fushsia Glitter to Pink Glitter or Red Glitter to Clear Glitter then just putting on a layer of any clear polish with Glitter works almost as good. I also only wear the polishes with the glitter on my big toes cause I love showing off!
The whole idea is go ahead and have some fun this year and start showing off your pretty toes! If you not a wearer of Mood Changing Nail Polish or just never tried it before, then be sure to stop by Overallbeauty.com and try some out/

But I will by no means close this Blog down, its my first and I rather enjoy the thoughts and views I get from all my readers.

I am trying to figure out how to make something so it could be downloaded from my site.
Now I think I read something that one must go all the way as if buying for it before you could
download it .. But if its for free.. why do it that way?
It might be that you add it like you would a product and then someone could download it...
gee I think I need testers for this..I am still trying to decide what to put as a download but I
did find that I got some ebooks on cooking. They may be good to use for this as I test...
I am going to work on a catalog and I am thinking of putting all my poems into a ebook
well you know maybe I should give that away instead... just ideas for the day..

I been working on that for about a hour or so. Had to create the page of course but the fact I got it showing makes me very happy! I had not done that before, really start something! I said I would be getting a new site up and running and it looks like its even closer than before!
Have a great whatever, I got a website to up date with a new article that I still can't decide on its name. How bad is that?

I did find out that the new line of nail polish I offer Slimline doesn't have DBP which I been looking into. Its seems that it can cause birth defects in boys only. Not nice stuff if you ask me.
I got my new samples today for my mineral makeup line I am going to be offering. Trying to think of a good name for it. Its amazing stuff thats for sure... Pretty colors I can't wait to open and take pictures of it! I got a few ideas going now..I am going to have a arts and crafts site soon, mineral makeup and I got told I am nuts for doing this, a wedding site! Ok maybe not but I think that there is always room for all ideas. I don't have domain names picked out yet. But I know for sure that Overallbeauty will be part of the name for the mineral makeup.
Its late and I got shopping I need to do tomorrow..so off to bed I go and go do what ever you should be doing too..

Nailed … The Truth Behind Discount Nail Salons
by Kim Snyder Owner Overallbeauty.com
There are discount nail salons on just about every corner these days and a great deal of competition within the industry. Salons that are higher in price are now going out of their way to specialize in different, branded systems that are inventive in the different ways they offer you to take care of your nails.
With Nail Salons on every corner, how do you pick the right one for you? There are many different types of Nail Salons, from your basic services to full out Retreats for weekends in the bed of luxury. How can you tell which one is right for what you want done?
You might enjoy paying less to have your fills done, but the cost of the product used to do that fill is still the same. All nail salons use the same kinds of products to work on your nails, so there really won’t be much difference in the type of products found in any salon you might visit. However, there ARE different brands available for each product type. If the nail salon you are going to uses a name brand product such as O.P.I, China Gaze, Creativespa, LECHAT Color Gel, Solar Oil, even at wholesale prices, the products cost about the same at either high end or low end Salons, so what extra value are you getting if you visit a more expensive nail salon?
What you are getting at a higher cost Salon are typically better services, benefits and in some cases, more personal care and attention. One of those benefits may be cleaner air. Indoor air pollution from the chemicals in nail products can be one of the biggest problems for those who have breathing problems, but still want to get their nails done. If you are getting your nails done at a higher end salon, there is a good chance that they have an air filter or fans or other air cleaners to stop the smell of acrylics from burning your nose or eyes when you walk in the door.
Many additional services are being offered at higher end Salons, other than just your basic acrylic overlays with tips, and simple manicures and pedicures. When we asked clients about the best Salons they had patronized, they said there were differences in what the place looked like, but even when it wasn’t called a Day Spa it was just a step down from it. Here is a common list of services offered by higher end nail salons.
· Spa-level Manicures,
· Spa-level Pedicures,
· Natural Nail Care,
· Silk/Cotton/Linen Nail Wraps,
· Nail Art beyond simple one color flowers,
· Full Sets,
· Gel Overlays,
· Massage Legs, Arms, Hands
· Organic and Botanical products for Pedicures,
The whole atmosphere is different at a higher end nail salon. There is no rushing to get your nails done, with your cuticles being roughed up because technicians are filing quickly because they must do many more manicures a day to make a living wage.
Each nail technician in a higher-end salon should be dressed for success or wear a smock with the nail salon’s name on it. They are typically not gossiping among themselves about other clients and not speaking to each other in languages other than English. Salon clients consulted in the preparation of this article made a very strong recommendation that one language should be spoken when there are clients in the room and technicians should wear little or no jewelry.
All these different services are going to cost more and there is no way around that fact. For those who don’t need more than just a fill every two weeks, these benefits may mean nothing, but for those who want more, it’s going to cost more.
After asking different salon owners and those who get manicures and pedicures done regularly, all say one word: “ Sanitation.” The biggest difference between higher priced and discount Nail Salons is the level of cleanliness of the whole Salon, including the equipment and technicians. This should be the most basic criteria of choice.
Based on that, if you can’t decide whether you want to go to a discount nail salon or one that is higher priced, then here are a few additional ideas to might help you decide.
When you walk into a nail salon, either discount or higher in price, stop and look around. Are the floors dirty or does the carpet have big stains on it? What do the nail technicians look like? Do they look unkempt or have nails of their own that look like they need work? Are their stations disorganized and untidy? If this is what you are seeing, then the best thing you could do is just turn and walk away.
A health inspector we interviewed said that when she visited a particular nail salon, her first impression was that it looked clean, and the prices was reasonable. Then she began her close examination. What she saw was down
Today you can buy your own simple equipment for your nail technician to use on your nails and no one else’s. Many technicians use nail files that are single use. You can ask for them if that is something you would rather have used on your nails.
Nail technicians are there to give a service. If they do a great job, please don’t to forget to tip them - they have to eat too.
If you are not sure which Salon to patronize, ask your friends or family or work colleagues for recommendations about where they go to get their nails done. If you see someone with nails that you admire, don’t hesitate to ask them for a recommendation to their favorite Salon. Go with your friends and see their favorite salons for yourself, before having any work on done on your own nails.
Which Salon you choose should be based on many if not most of the ideas we have mentioned above, and on your income, where you live, and what you want done. Only you can decide what you are willing to pay to have the luxury of getting your nails and toes done.

I need to post it on my site still but so many things going on behind the scenes that I just have not had time. No I am not going to tell you what has been going on cause well put it this way, my mouth would be needing to be washed out if I said how I feel.
Do enjoy mt newest article and please, tell me what you think.

you feel? Did you do all that you wanted to do? Go all the places you wanted to go? Make more money than the year before? Wait I have to answer that one. Yea I did, could I of made more than I did? I don't know can you say that? How more honest can I be? 2005 had its up and downs and even a few sideways things going on, but it was still a pretty good year.
I did it I got over 3000 visitors to Overallbeauty.com, way to go there, now have 13 articles and 2 poems wrote, not good but not all that bad either, got a second site started and thats right started. Make new friends online and offline as well. Got a new car, Baby my 2004 blue ION way to go there!, still there were a few things I wanted to do that I didn't get to do.
Didn't go on a real vacation, plan on changing that this year, Mom my husband's mom passed away, little hard to talk about that, had a son leave for the ARMY and come home not a member of the armed forces, got his mother's asthma. WOOT! He left again with one girl friend and came home with a new one, still have that one and everything is doing fine with them. My oldest has a job that is now full time and he is shift leader, way to go Derek! Not bad Not bad indeed. Wish they both would go back to school but I can't have everything.
Ok thats just about it now what are your plans for 2006 that you are going to at least try and follow through on? For me:
1- Finish my second site GiftsandBeauty.com so look for a grand opening there
2- Write more articles and see if I can at least double Decembers traffic without spending more
money than what is needed.
3- This is my biggest one not be so quick tempered, learn to give more and ask for less, take time out for the family more.
4- See if I can at least get $1000. more in profit in one month just one month! Not asking too much you think? That would put me closer to my major goal of making more money than my husband does in one year and its not profit I want it to be his pay before they take anything out.
Side Note: Did you know that if you take the time to write down and share about your goals you have planned that its more ought going to happen than if you just kept it to yourself? Interesting but oh so very true. I don't remember where it was that I hear that but I really feel its the truth.
5- Open up more streams of money making ideas. I already have one of those started and I so want to share it but I don't want to be jinked so keep a eye out for it!
6- Write more articles oh I said that already huh? Ok write more poetry! Where that is something that I been doing for as long as I can remember. I have a new one that I wrote that I think I might share.
Sit down and really think, what are your goals for the coming year? Want to share then? And its within my field then just leave me a comment and I will know what is on your mind.
Ok here you go my latest in poetry, when you are done reading tell me what you think ok?
Out of the Dark
Come out of the dark
I called to him ------
Come see what I see----
I like it here in the dark
He called back to me
Turning his back to me.
Come out of the dark
I called back to him
You have got to see what I see!
He called back to me-----
It’s safe here , in the dark
Why not you come to me?
I called back to him
I like it here in the light
All our friends are here--------
Don’t you want to know what I see?
Not really he called back to me
With his back to me
He starts to walk further
Into the darkness-----------
I don’t like it here in the dark
But you are here so will I be--------
I called to him to wait for me
He stops, He turns to look at me--------
Why are you here? He said to me
You don’t like the dark he says to me
But you are here I said to him
I don’t like the dark, Its very plain indeed
But you are in here and
I want to be with you
I don’t want you to be alone
So in the dark I will be!
If I take your hand
Will you walk with me out of the dark
And into the light?
He asked of me.
Sure! Let us go!
Take my hand, and into the light we will go.
All our friends are there
It’s lot’s of fun you will see!
We walked out of the dark my friend and I
To the cheering of all our friends!------------
He is your mind, afraid and alone
In your mind the light is
Just new ideas, new thoughts, new actions------
Your mind will be afraid
It’s hard to change a way of light.
Take yourself for a walk
To see all the wonders around you---------
Take a good look at yourself and change
One action, One reaction, One thought,
One way of doing things
And you will find that the light
Is life all around you just begging to be
In to light is the wonders as far as
Your eyes can see----------
Don’t be afraid to ask of others for help
For you will find that the dark is
Not a fun of place to be
When you what the light offers you to be------
