How old is the earth?

This has very little to do with Earth day.

Though I do agree that trying to discredit evolution is silly, and I'm no creationist... I still need to point out that Earth Day originally celebrated at Spring Equinox around March 20, and it is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth's natural environment.

Now Earth Day is coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year. In 2009, the United Nations designated April 22 International Mother Earth Day. Earth Day is planned for April 22 in all years at least through 2015.

I’m SAD I feel like Everyone has that Somebody except for me =( When will it happen for me *sighs*

I'm SAD I feel like Everyone has that Somebody except for me =( When will it happen for me *sighs* am I just a?

You are as you see yourself. Why don't you change how you see yourself? What you think about expands and right now you are feeding your mind lack. You need to feed it the information that you desire so that you can achieve the result you want.

Let me explain. Simply put, what you think about expands. If you let your mind wander, life happens to you and you don't usually get the life you want. So right now your thoughts are focused on the things that you don't have. Your emotions are fed to you based on what you think about because your brain feeds you emotions based on what your thoughts are. It doesn't care what you think about, it just produces emotions congruent with your thoughts. So you're experiencing being sad because lack causes sadness- sucks right? The good news is that you can change the cycle by changing your thoughts towards abundance rather than lack.Well, how do you do that? Fist of all write down what you want in life. You know, most people never do this so how do they expect to get it? Start it like this, "My life is so amazing. I have the greatest husband. Not only is he an amazing lover and friend, he is such a good father to our children"- etc. etc. etc. Describe to the universe exactly what it is you want your reality to be. Then concentrate on this life daily, picturing it with great clarity, imagining exactly how it makes you feel. Secondly, shift your thinking from lack to abundance. One way to do this is to start a gratitude list. If you are constantly expressing your appreciation for what you love in life, it shifts your focus from that which you don't like so much. Remember, what you focus on expands, so focus on the things you want to expand. Write down one thing everyday that your grateful for. Read it every day and focus on the feelings that they make you feel. Then date it, put it away and start a new list.

What do you get out of all this work? Well, your brain will feed you emotions based on your thoughts, right? So you will start being happy. The second thing that will happen is that your subconscious mind will go to work for you eventually making it happen. That's right- dream life realized. This is the simple version of course. The hard part is past the initial difficulties of making the shift in your awareness. These are difficulties similar to the ones associated to exercising on a regular basis- you may want to give up. There's a bunch of peptides released by the brain that the bodies cells get addicted to and they want to resist, but the bottom line is that what you think about expands so keep thinking about your ultimate goal.

You are not a loser! Unless of course you think you are, and I don't think you think that. You're just discouraged because it hasn't happened for you yet. That will change, but only if you believe it will. Go create the reality you want. I believe in you.

Live life loving.
