I'll tell you...

Lately there hasn't been a source of inspiration for me. Not even how great my classes are, how blessed I am, how many great things are to happen in my life, how many amazing decisions I've taken lately.. None of that has been a source of inspiration for me to come to my blog and write my heart out. Usually I write about some sort of dillema in my life or a quote that I read or anything else that comes to me. Today I'll write about specifically nothing. I'll tell you how I bought a large caramel macchiato from a coffee shop I've never bought it from and it was truly disgusting but drank it anyways because I spent my hard earned money on it. I'll tell you how today I spent a reasonable amount of money for my textbooks even though I wanted to, instead, go shopping with that money. I'll tell you how I woke up at 7am today to pay my electricity bill to be told that I cant pay it until 8am. I'll tell you how I paid my electricity bill and was charged a late fee because I paid it late. I'll tell you that because of that I instead wanted to yell at the lady and tell her she was being unreasonable for charging a $43 late fee but instead I sighed and told myself it was my fault for paying it late. I'll tell you how I spent about 5 hrs in the library doing my HR work and secretly enjoyed it. I'll tell you how in about an hour I have to go to work and I'll watch episodes of Gossip Girl after I fastly but efficiently speed through my job's to-do list. I'll tell you how I can't keep a certain someone out of my head and that it's amazing yet scary all at the same time. Life is a culmination of little things.. You decide what to do with them. XO!

The Paradox of Our Time.

So today I was going through some of my old stuff and found this within some papers I had from high school.. I read it & it made me sad because all of it was true.. I'm here to share it with you.

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less. We have more degrees but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgement; more experts, yet more problems; more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, wake up too tired, read too little, watch television too much and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduces our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We have learned how to make a living, but not a life. We have added years to our life, but not life to our years. We have been all the way to the moon, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space, but not inner space. We have done larger things, but not better things. We have cleaned up the air, but polluted our souls. We plan more, but accomplish less. We have learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character. Steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes, but more divorces; fancier houses, but broken homes. These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that can do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can either choose to share this insight or just hit "delete".

Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember to say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person will soon grow up and leave your side. Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you. Remember to say "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones but, most of all, mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands an cherish the moment, for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

With all my love,

Start today.

Your life may be in shambles. You may not want to continue to live life for all the reasons that are ruining it at the moment. Your vision may be blurred with all of these obstacles. Your head my be clouded with all of the negative thoughts that it produces, that seems like 1 million per millisecond. Your heart may be dark with no room to feel anything any more. You may feel like your life is a never ending abyss and things are just getting worse as the seconds tick on by. Your significant other may not support your dreams, your family may not approve of some of the things you do, your friends may be blowing you off. Your job may be horrible and your car may not want to start on random days when your running late to work and already have a coffee stain on your brand new shirt. But one day someone tells you something, you see something happen, or you read something somewhere and WA LA! Something triggers in your brain you start seeing all of these wonderful things that are in your life that you have overstepped for some reason. You look up and smile. You throw your hands up in surrender and you whisper to yourself that everything is going to be alright. That eventhough life may get to be a mess at times, rain doesn't last forever. That there are wonderful things in your life and maybe it's time you declutter the not so good things in it. & maybe this is what we all have to do sometimes. Maybe we have to surrender ourselves to our everyday lives because things are uniquely designed to serve our unique purpose in life. These things are for our betterment, & who knows maybe those things were happening to tell you that you deserve better and to never settle for less than what you deserve. XO kids!

P.S. You only have ONE heart, be true to it!

Hello 2012!

OMGHHKP! I just noticed I did my first post of 2012! How weird is it that we are in 2012 already? Anyways Christmas was christmas, my 4 year old brother was the one opening up all the gifts which was blissful to see :) & NYE I spent it with my best friend her mom and her brother at a cozy restaurant in town dancing the night away. My life didn't magically change from one night to the other and I made no new year resolutions. I just vow to take life as it comes, one day at a time. I am so blessed and I am alive and that's the only thing that matters to me. XO!

It takes one person to make a DIFFERENCE!

I saw this.
I read this.
I fell in love.

Relationships don’t work the way they do on television and in the movies. Will they? Won’t they? And then they finally do, and they’re happy forever. Gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren’t right for each other to begin with, and half of the ones who get married get divorced anyway, and I’m telling you right now, through all this stuff I have not become a cynic. I haven’t. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate covered candies and, y’know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don’t care, because I do believe in it. Bottom line: couples who are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is they don’t let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time. If it’s right, and they’re real lucky, one of them will say something.
