Not your typical “New Year New Me” Post ✋🏽 🛑 Plot Twist ⚠️ 🔥 🔥 Things I’ve learned in 2018 ☝🏽

B1E51F64-2F2B-4A1E-BAD7-2B548264D985.jpegAs the year comes to an end, I like to take inventory and also reflect on it. I’ve been keeping myself in check ( gotta check yourself before you wreck yourself you know 🤭🤷🏻‍♀️🤨) I have been mindful and have taken the time to write a few good lessons that 2018 has left me with. Maybe you’re able to relate in some or at least reflect & make changes that are necessary. That’s ultimately my goal and purpose in sharing! 

  • People Pleasing 🙄✋🏽🙅🏻‍♀️ 🛑                                                 Saying yes when you mean No! Learn to say No 👎 A lot of us struggle with being a “good” person and often are stuck in places & environments that are not for us. I mean this in a very kind and loving way. Be a good person but don’t waste your time proving it, the ones that truly know you will respect it. ✊ I’m a firm believer that we only get in life what we are willing to accept. Please practice Saying No ✋🏽 🛑 when needed ( Nothing wrong with that)                                
  • Boundaries ☝🏽⚠️                                 To piggy back on above….Ohhhh have I learned my boundaries this year! 🙊✋🏽🤷🏻‍♀️ I believe you can still be loving, kind, thoughtful & most of all a giving human BUT stick to your boundaries!!!   

                                                                            

  • Say Yes More & Take Some Risks! 

 I know it’s contradicting with what I just said above ☝🏽 but hear me out..👂I do believe there are always exceptions & so I do think calculated risks is where we   

A. Will Win 🙌 or B. Will Learn 🤷🏻‍♀️🙌 

Both are absolutely Okay 👌🏻 and so necessary in this life! I much rather know with certainty that something didn’t work out than always have the “What if” playing in the background..Sometimes you have to break your own “Rules”🤭🙊Say YES more often when the the time calls for it ! 😬👊🏼

 • Be Vulnerable and Real 

  If I’m honest, I’ve struggled with this for as long as I can remember. I’ve always been strong minded & just in general a strong woman. I know partially it’s because of my upbringing, my Mother ( who never ceases to amaze me by her Resilience) and whatever life has thrown at me. I’ve learned to always be everyones rock. For the longest I’ve been Strong 💪🏽 Strong & Stronger no matter what. Well, Plot Twist for me this year taught me a very valuable lesson. I allowed myself to be human, to be vulnerable & to feel all things. I even have had a few good cries when necessary. I’ve been honest when I’m not “ok” because it’s human I’m going to stumble &  fall but you better believe the  come up is the best part ☝🏽 So when possible be real & vulnerable  ( it’s always possible) it’s beautiful thing & such a humbling experience! ☺️

•Don’t take things so personal  

As hard as it is at times because we are human and a little complicated at times. 

The way people behave towards you is almost never because of you. It’s a direct reflection of themselves, keep that in mind. The next time someone is short with you or rude with you do your best to not overreact or attack back. Instead of giving them back what they gave you, give them some love and kindness.We all have our days and you never know what that person is going through, be Mindful! ☝🏽 💭 

  • Learn to love people as they are ❤️ 

I know this is not an easy one ☝🏽 at all for many of us.We always want to see people especially our loved ones in better places. Unfortunately, it’s a constant fight until we change how we think and feel we will never be accepting of others. We have to also keep in mind that people can only meet us where they are mentally.🧠 💭 

While I do believe we can still reach out help others, pray for them, and be there for them.They have to be willing to put in their own work and we have to be willing to love them from far even if it means taking a step back. Every case is different ❤️ Still love them but know it’s not you’re job to save everyone! (Note to myself : ✅  I can’t always be Wonder Woman got it 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️💪🏽⚡️) 

 • Be YOU! 

 Yes we hear this all day everyday but how many times do we water ourselves down? 

Or even worse try to “Fit in “

Here’s a piece of advice Don’t! 

It’s crazy how on one end they tell you “Only be yourself” and when you are they say Nope not like that ✋🏽 🙄

Fortunately, where I am in life & after putting much work. I don’t want to waste one more minute being anything other than myself. Some people will love you and others not so much 🤷🏻‍♀️ Guess what ? It’s Life,  your tribe will find you!!!💜

( especially the more Real you are) Be confident, brave & mostly love yourself !!

  • It’s never too late 

Such a “cliche” statement however this year truly taught me that it really isn’t. 

We get attached to ideas or let others define our dreams or ideas 💡 

Whyyyy??? If we only have this one life ☝🏽 ONE ☝🏽

Why aren’t we running towards our dreams as if our lives depended on it??? 

Fear, Attachments, People, Distractions this list can go on and on…I came out this with this thought 💭 I can’t and won’t ever be able to settle. For this very reason I’m absolutely sure that it really never is too late! Let’s chase these dreams now  more than ever 🙌😬

  • Travel Travel Travel 🧭 🌎 ✈️ 

Travel as much as you can & as far as you can. I’ve gained so much from traveling that no classroom would ever be able to teach me. From the beautiful views, to some amazing locals, to some of the best foods I’ve ever tasted.Not to mention you’ll have the best stories from this journey.Not traveling is doing yourself a disfavor, we are such a tiny part of this entire world. Climb those mountains, ride that horse, zip line in those jungles and talk to strangers. I would like to encourage you to see this beautiful world through your own eyes. Travel also humbles you & teaches you to be open to new horizons and plans. If you get the chance please Travel Travel and Travel!!!!! ✈️✈️✈️

  • When it comes to dating, relationships and love ❤️ ( 🤨🙊🔥 ) 

Surprise Surprise!!!💜🥰 😉

There’s still some amazingly genuine good people out there.There’s still some old school people & some old souls who will write you poetry and keep that  🔥 going.There’s some souls who will Ignite the fire within you ( When you know, you know right? 🙊🤭🤷🏻‍♀️) There’s people you haven’t even met yet who are waiting for you. Do not settle in this department & definitely don’t give up!!!

Your person will come, so relax ✋🏽 I suggest you work on yourself & do your work so when they arrive you are able to receive them with open arms. It’s all about timing so wait your turn but I guarantee it’s a lot closer than you think…While you’re “busy” planning life they’ll just show up ( speaking from experience 🤷🏻‍♀️) And when It does Show up & Go for it! ❤️

•Dance through ups and downs of life  💃 

I mean this literally, sometimes we are up and sometimes we are down. If we learn to not let that dictate our present moment that is true power 💪🏽 🔥 So Dance! Lol 😝 

If you learn to dance through life tho I know you’ll Smile Most! 😃 Dance in your car, dance at church, dance in your living room and in your kitchen and whenever possible! Just keep dancing! 🕺🏻 💃 

•Trust

I left the best one for last ☝🏽 Good Ole TRUST! Trusting God because he knows best and he knows the Whys, Whens and Hows!!!!

Sometimes we won’t know all the answers & the world will feel like it’s crashing down on us. In these times it’s so critical to remain calm and collected. The biggest challenge is trusting that the next chapter that’s about to unfold will be a better one and that everything ( and I mean everything under the sun happens for us not against us ☝🏽) Accept what is and enjoy your present moment. Keep trusting that the Man upstairs always has our back and he is always paving that road for us. Let go of controlling every situation and allow whatever needs to happen to happen… Let Go and Let God because that’s the best and only way!  🙏🏽❤️

Remember that we are only here for a limited amount of time. Therefore let’s start being better humans!  💪🏽🤗

Let’s start living a full life with no regrets of the past.Lets make peace with our lives while letting go of everything that no longer serves us. Let’s forgive and extend grace to others. Let’s be mindful, mature and responsible for our own actions. Let’s also do our own work so we can rise up to any and every tough situation. I believe most importantly and when possible be a little piece of love ❤️ to others, feed the hungry, hug the hurt, love the broken, be gentle with other people, listen to them, and leave everyone a little bit better than you found them! People rarely remember what you say but they’ll never forget how you made them feel ❤️ 🤗 Next ☝🏽 Keep in mind as I’m a true believer that our best moments haven’t happened yet so always look forward to the future! 💫

I quote C. S. Lewis  “ There are far better things ahead than what we leave behind “ ❤️

I’ll conclude by wishing you guys the  most amazing year to come full of Love, Peace, Good Health & Wealth! I hope you are very Intentional this year about your life! Seize all of your Days!!! 💜

I hope you were able to enjoy this post .😊 Cheers to this Beautiful New Year 2019!!! 🥂 Til My Next one Amigos ✌🏽 ❤️ Much Love!

But are you happy?🤔

A31734CE-FD2E-49EA-B5EF-60A56CD31A39

Lately I’ve been pondering 🤔 what it truly means to be “happy” ?.I guess it can be many different things depending on who you ask, what mental state you are in, how much you’ve grown to appreciate where you are in life & also where you’re going…Oh the list can go on and on…With that being said as I become more aware of who I’m becoming. I’ve come to “appreciate” ( inserts a tad bit of sarcasm🙊🤷🏻‍♀️) When individuals at any given moment ask you the following…So what do you do? Where are you from? And here come the best questions…ready?! Are you dating? If so, do you want to get married ? What about your career? What about kids? Don’t you want kids? Where will you move? Where will you go from there? What about the house? What about your future? What about this ?What about that? What about…..? Okay you get me especially if you’re an Adult like myself doing your best to keep adulting…I’m sure you have been here before in some way or another ☝🏽 ( maybe many times) Now I’m not saying these aren’t valid questions nor do I mind answering them. 🙊However I do find It interesting that they rarely ask the most important question and that is ☝🏽

Are you happy???

Because at the end of the day I’m a firm believer nothing matters if you’re not truly happy…The car you drive, the house you live in, those vacations you take, the career you have, those “happy” pictures you take, your significant other, those fancy things you own etc etc etc..I do believe it all begins with yourself, your purpose in life &  the love you carry within you and where your heart is at.

The ability to carry on in hard situations and pull through..The learning and understanding to love the journey just the same when it’s hard or when it’s smooth..Wether you can handle when you have the world against you or when you’re on cloud nine living your best life….I would like to encourage you to take a moment and dig very deep and also take  longggg look at your life & ask yourself if you’re doing this for you? Or for what reasons? Reflect and Redirect if necessary  ( again only if necessary ☝🏽)  Whatever you do, don’t listen to others and their “timelines” all of that is irrelevant if you’re truly happy .😊 In a Society that tries to sell us many concepts of what it means to be “happy” while attempting to dictate what we should be doing or when, please be different and follow your own path! It’s okay if you’ve taken a different road.It’s okay if you’ve failed a few times and still got back up.It’s okay if you don’t have it all figured out ( none of us do all the time ) It’s truly okay to live life on your own terms, be your unique self & own it like you mean it! Lastly, whatever you do make sure it makes you the Happiest being ALIVE! & When I mean Happy I mean genuinely happy. Not a “pretend happy” to please others…That will only bring you misery. Go out there love yourself & love the heck out of this Messy yet Beautiful Life!  💪🏽❤️ 💥

 

Step out &. Be Fearless 💪🏽💙

028C3ADC-E07D-4CD7-8F64-D2DB3D333A0CFA9E89D8-F42B-4770-B852-9065B414FE80Over the last few days I’ve been able to reflect and almost be pushed to talk about My Favorite F word ( No it’s not what you’re thinking…I’m not the Potty mouth type here lol) It’s “Fear” I feel we don’t talk about this enough and we should to be honest..We should be helping others who are struggling with this & sharing our stories to influence people who need it.I certainly don’t think I’m some kind of know it all Guru but I feel the more I’m open about my battles & struggles.I have come to realize we are all so different but at the same time very much the same… As I prepare mentally for this new chapter of my life to unfold, I’ve been fortunate to be getting constant “reminders” to be Fear Less! I’m usually always telling others & myself to just Go for it! Push thru! Give up on that Fear and be Courageous yada yada yada..You know how I do, if there’s anything I know I am, is a Strong Encourager!I have to be honest tho I haven’t always been this way took me a few bumps on the road to get it right. Once in a while I do need a little reminder!…As I meet others of my same age, older & younger, we all seem to share this thing ( it doesn’t seem to discriminate) Fear of not doing enough, Fear of not making it,Fear of not finding meaning,Fear of not being happy,Fear of loving, Fear of not loving,Fear of being yourself,Fear of not saying enough or saying too little, Fears,Fears and more fears ( the list can go on forever) I get it trust me, I’ve been there done that..As I sank deeper into my fears I felt trapped I felt as if it was sinking me down with no escape..But why? I allowed it, I allowed my thoughts to keep me captive and all my negatives to come against me. I also realized I allowed people to influence me & tell me what I wouldn’t be able to accomplish, they told me things would be hard, it’s dangerous , they told me that’s never been done before, etc…Ever been stuck in a situation, where you felt there was no way out? That’s exactly where I was.Now in retrospect and also learning from prior situations. I feel I have a few steps, that really helped me to get out and step up to face My Fears( One by one, I’ve been able to conquer them) Apply the following if and when necessary & also not to be used in any specific order ) I started first by not listening to others around me (Yup I stayed far away from everyone that told me I couldn’t and shouldn’t) I always say make sure your circle is rowing with you not against you, I can’t emphasize this enough! I grabbed my notebook ( yes I’m old school like that lol ) I made a list with goals that scared the life out of Me and I started.I also trusted that life outside of my comfort zone would get me exactly where I need to be even if it was uncomfortable.After all if we only stay where we are comfortable, how are we able to grow & be challenged?Lastly I put my Faith In God and trusted him with all my heart ♥️ that if I faced my Fears and had full faith, he would meet me where I’m at and give me the Courage and Strength I needed along the way.. My go to verse is always “Be Strong and Courageous, Do not be afraid…”For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go “ Joshua 1:9 I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that the Bible tells us almost 400 times not to fear..
Looking back on all my experiences,I did them even if I was fearful at the moment. I was so glad I did & I never regretted taking those steps. Here’s some examples just to name a few :I packed up and Moved across the country(Did I have a set plan? Ummm not exactly) Skydiving( when I’m deadly scared of heights) International Mission trips (without knowing my team too well) Leaving a Career where I knew I had security (it no longer fulfilled me) Leaving friendships & relationships (knowing in my heart they no longer served me)Giving a presentation at a new place (I had no idea this was happening but I winged it and surprise I even got a huge applause at the end) Starting a Blog I’ve always wanted to do ( But being a private person and not having the courage had held me back)Who woulda thought but you get my point Right?..
So this brings me to my final thing I’d like to share…The next time you’re anxious or fearful about whatever it is ( apply accordingly )
Breathe & Step out with Courage & Just go for it! ( Keep in mind that 90% of what we think as far any negatives never happen!) There’s no failing in this…Only time you fail is when you don’t try! 💪🏽 Run! don’t walk towards whatever sets your soul on fire 🔥 even when it’s “scary” I encourage you to Be a little more “Fearless “ and Go for it! Your best life is waiting for you 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽

Why we should always be a kid at heart ♥️

8837279E-3990-41E1-B9F2-9EE35D163B9578F3E514-827C-42F3-A064-0AED8A2C112FAEE028AC-B8E9-4D8E-AA9A-C502915D3184.jpegI believe in many ways as we grow older,we lose our sense of wonder, we lose that curiosity that life gives us, we tend to gain some fears & thoughts that never would’ve crossed our minds as kids.  We sometimes forget to play & be kid like..We forget to view things with child like eyes, We even forget to laugh, dance and be silly…
I’ll share a little truth with you, as I hit my Big 3-0! ( I felt I was entering a whole new world for Me) I was actually a little sad or maybe slightly worried. It wasn’t so much because of my age but more so because I knew to a certain extent my Life was about to go thru some major changes (Let’s just say things Got pretty “Real”  for Me.That will be another story post, for another day)If I’m 100 %  honest tho I really wondered? I often caught myself thinking 🤔 💭 Do I have to be a Boring & Serious 30 something year old? What is that anyway ?Luckily for me those questions were soon answered.. The good news ? Little did I know that I was becoming more Me than ever… A More “ Authentic “ Me! Now in restrospect it’s been a sweet, sometimes crazy and very fulfilling process since then.

So all of this got me thinking. I know we can partially blame it on the everyday “routine” &  the hustle & bustle that become our daily norm..I mean we are “Grown Ups ” now,  right? We have things to do & endless lists…Who has time to be silly? Right ?…We are so busy “Adulting “ becoming accomplished, responsible, and highly respected people.
Let’s face it though we are happier if we find a middle ground..I like to call it My happy medium… The older & more real I get with myself & the more aware I am.I truly believe it’s a necessity to be silly at times, to laugh at the small things even if you’re laughing at yourself😂..( how Ironic right? ) Laughing to me is the best cure even in the worst times..Being that I’ve always been a little clown as a child, I guess it’s safe to say it comes natural but even I myself need a reminder from time to time…Nothing beats a good deep belly laugh ( the ones that leave you feeling like you have abs or even better the ones that leave you literally in tears &  barely breathing )
The best teachers I’ve found have been kids.Interacting with them is the best! The truth is I love kids because I’m a big kid myself…What amazes me is to witness how much imagination, curiosity and joy they have.How funny they naturally are.That’s  the beauty of kids, they aren’t worried about what others think , they just are who they are.That’s a basic lesson for us, even as we grow up and become who we’re so busy becoming. We should keep that inner child laughing, playing and being genuine..
As I’m here reflecting &  turning yet another year older.Things may get very  “Real” for me with each passing year as I face new challenges (& on some days I feel like a True Grandma haha 👵🏼 nevertheless a cool fun one of course) I’m really content that I’ve learned to tap into & embrace silliness, joy, curiosity & playfulness..I mean let’s be honest, being an Adult is hard work & I never want to be that person that takes herself way too seriously ( I highly doubt it’s possible even if I try) So please excuse me while I go throw some confetti,get pushed around in a shopping cart, dance like no one is watching( & if they are who cares! Hey maybe they’ll join haha) I’ll just keep being my “Normal” silly & extra goofy self (while making those facial expressions that never lie) & of course I’m going to continue to laugh a little bit or better yet A lot!.. Let’s Learn to be more of that inner kid until it becomes infectious! Til the next post…Later 🐒💜 ✌🏼✌🏼😜😬🙊

Some Practical Tips that have helped me through Life ✍️

3F74304D-8A56-4C57-8232-0141493E52F9

1. Let Go of the past…Seriously tho, you are not your past nor your mistakes..Forgive people and forgive yourself…Make peace with the fact that some people, places and things are only holding you back.Learn to let go gracefully..You’re only making room for better things..That right there is True Freedom!
2. Take Risks! I mean how many times have you been given an opportunity & you stopped yourself for whatever reason?…I bet the answer is many times..Learn to jump and figure the rest out later..Sometimes it’s now or never..So Go for it!
3. Show Up and Be on time! (Ok the second part I’m still working on if I’m completely honest 🤦🏻‍♀️ ) Showing up tho & giving everything your best shot..That’s the ultimate feeling
4. Don’t listen to what others say..I’ve learned people will always have an “Opinion” be negative or tell you what to with your life…Now don’t get me wrong, good feedback or constructive criticism is great but Don’t listen to the Naysayers..Trust me on this one, If I listened to them I wouldn’t have gone anywhere in Life..This is your journey and yours alone.. You are responsible for your outcomes, Make sure you’re writing Your Greatest story!
5. Be whatever you are..If you’re weird be weird!( simple as that)  Be unapologetic about these things. I think I’m very Unique & far from typical (sometimes a little too silly & I laugh way too much when I shouldn’t )but I kinda Love it! Be yourself & Be okay with that! Own your personality, Own your flaws Just own it & all of it!
6. Don’t try to impress others! ..Some will love you no matter what & others won’t…It’s Life…That’s why it’s so Important to watch your Company..You are the people you are around..The right people will support you, lift you up, will be there through good and bad, tell you the truth even when you don’t want to hear it and be there to celebrate with you of course!
7. For everything there is a Time and A Season, so don’t rush things…I’m a firm believer in timing…The right time will create the right opportunities..Be patient some things will be worth the wait
8. Be Kind everyone is battling something…Listen I know I have my days I wish no one would talk to me & the last thing I want to do is engage in conversation…However “kindness is everything ” & I don’t say it loosely..We all have our struggles, some of us just hide them better..When we are ok with those things we can actually work on them and they don’t own us…So it’s Definitely Ok not to have it all together all the time..In fact I think it’s healthy to lose yourself here and there so you can reconstruct from the bottom( the only way is up) ..Do things wiser 🙌🏼
9. Be the first to Smile, to talk to someone, to start a conversation, be bold.You never know what that can lead you to.That person may very well be your next boss, best friend,next business partner, special someone etc. You really never know trust me some of the best people I’ve met in life have been because I took the initiative!

Our Scars

E3348CAE-919D-4A0E-BF08-8BFCD7A0A90A

Our scars they shape us, they teach us, they break us & sometimes repair us, they are carried well within us…Some of us are built tougher than others but we all have them..Some of our scars remind us of tragic events while others are bittersweet bringing back certain thoughts or memories..Yet these scars in my personal opinion are Crucial in life for growth & development and of course for Good Ole Learning. I am one to believe we must embrace pain & learn to cope as everything in life is a balance of both Good and Bad…So maybe our Scars they aren’t so bad after all…They are there, implanted in our brains.At times they give us hope (depending on the circumstance) At Times they may paralyze us due to a prior events that may have ended in the wrong direction.Whatever the outcome, Scars I️ do love them. You see because just like these pages they are written inside each of us painted into our souls.Somehow these scars are made Beautiful, They are deep & well put into us..There is something so perfect about these Scars, They tell a story and just like finger prints no two scars are ever the same..Each one carries its individual impact..If you ask me to be honest I’d be the first to admit, I’m actually proud of all my scars!They remind me how strong & resilient I️ can be.I’m reminded how some battles are won and some not so much nevertheless  I’m reminded of My Scars &  they’re Beautiful! 💪🏼❤️✨A736D485-7943-4E99-8CA2-350A0FB36505 ❤️💪🏼✨

This Experiment called “Life”

948DF8C9-DBFF-41D4-84FC-46324E2079ADThe best way I can describe Life is… it’s one ” Big Experiment” A constant journey of growth and never ending learning.Some days we are so High on life & some days we look like The Grinch who stole Christmas haha (yes we all have our days)Will we be making mistakes? I say, Absolutely! I really hope we are making them and lots of them because if we aren’t, are we even Living? Or just getting by or even worse being Stagnant…Staying in one place letting our fears take over…Now let me clarify in no way, shape or form am I telling you to be reckless with your life but what I am saying is I hope that when you do have a chance you take a New opportunity you take it without the fear of failing, I believe the only way we can really fail is by never trying anything…So I hope that you take this one life that you’re given and experience it, savor it, cherish it and Live as best as possible! I hope that Fear is not your strong hold to keep you prisoner of somewhere you shouldn’t be…I hope that you look back someday with A Big Smile knowing that you really LIVED! And “Lived a Great Story “👍

Shifting into a better ME!

9FAAF52C-3CC4-4888-9A0B-5F3A1EBC1DBAOver the last year I’ve began to shift into a Happier, More fulfilling & Definitely much better place in Life. I think I’ve changed so much in the last year and have grown so much ( not literally I’m still a little shorty haha ) So I feel it’s only right to share & hopefully help others who are on the same or similar path in Life.. Life is tasting better & the great thing is others are getting a better version of Me as well…Writing to me has always been both a passion of Mine and Outlet & Lately also a way of helping others…With that being Said I’ve decided to start this Journey of blogging & sharing My thoughts and parts of My story…I Hope that you guys will be able to relate, laugh a little ( very important to always laugh even thru the hardships) and of course Learn from my bits of pieces of What I like to call my Own little “Words of Wisdom”. A Little background about Me & Some Fun Facts : I was born and raised in New Jersey but living in Sunny FL these days…My parents are from Lovely Cuba & Beautiful Ecuador, which makes me A Proud Latina! I was blessed with some pretty strict but awesome parentals & thanks to them I speak Spanish fluently & was introduced to some pretty amazing food and some Cuban coffee that will literally have me flying all day.”Cafecito is Life “these days especially when I need some extra power haha…Okay Okay here we go back to “Business” You will most likely find me being a workaholic, been doing it since 14 yrs old.. Currently I’m working in the medical field while pursuing a few other personal goals which I will share later.. You can also find me either being a Foodie & trying new restaurants or cheffing it up in my kitchen.. On Weekends you can find me at church, My faith is BIG to Me & part of the reason I am where I am…You may also find me volunteering giving back which has also become a Big part of Me, Exploring a New Place & what it has to offer or at Some Cool Seminar learning.. I Love Learning! Which brings me to being such a Gyspy Soul.. Yes I’m very much a traveler, and I really enjoy Taking trips to new places enjoying the culture and people etc. so You may bump into me at the airport or in a plane haha ( just kidding okay maybe not, it’s actually happened before) You can find me either running or attempting to be a runner or at the gym ( it’s literally my De-stresser)
Where else can you find Me? Hmmm At the beach either napping ( ahh the simplicities of life) or taking in either a beautiful sunset or sunrise…Not sure which I love most…Writing by the sea is my place of Tranquility and that’s where my mind is most at ease so my thoughts become words & my words become part of My story on paper….I would say last but not least you can find me sitting for minutes that sometimes turn into hours of talking to people.It ranges  from my very best friends/family members/coworkers to complete strangers about Life experiences and most times it will turn into some very stimulating conversations ( these of course are My personal favorite) Giving them some very honest or  practical advice, making them laugh or helping them plan when they are in a Funk…I’ve been called the “The Positive Fairy” & have been asked “Why are you always so happy”? I strongly disliked it at first but now I see it’s part of Me & I want to embrace it & this is one of the many reasons I’ve decided to make this Blog a reality…So I Welcome you, sit back, enjoy, grab a coffee or drink of choice & follow Me thru My Journey of Words! May my words Inspire you, fill you with Hope & Make you want to try again!
