Beauty Begets Beauty and the Prince Phenomenon
Ever noticed how beauty or ugly tends to run in a neighborhood?

) went to one of several concerts he is holding this summer in LA and reported back that he started performing at 8 PM and played ’til 2 AM giving 6 encores and bringing out as a surprise guest… the legendary Stevie Wonder. They basically were having a jam session of life, doing the thing they most love to do and sharing it.
Desiree said it was, in a word, i-n-s-p-i-r-i-n-g to see someone so obviously living their bliss–that it made you want to go out and really live your life–not just settle for “that’ll do” !

You inspire others and
