Life and Thoughts
Today wasn’t my day. So, I did what I knew best and went to the beach to reflect. As I sat in the sand watching the glorious sunset around me and the waves creeping closer and closer to me, I thought, “if the waves continue to fight to get farther up the shore line, yet are sent away each time, why should I not fight to make this day a good day even though things aren’t going right?” Every day that passes is a day that you can’t get back. It’s worth the fight, no matter how hard you get pushed down.

Took a walk by myself to the lagoon to reflect. Sat on top a sandy hill and took in everything around me. I watched a group of friends playing corn hole, drinking and listening to music, which made me feel nostalgic. I wished it was me playing with them, laughing and having fun. But, instead I laid down and began to take in the suns rays. No sooner did I do that and I hear, “hi. I need a partner, do you want to play?” Of course I jumped to the opportunity. I thought to myself, ‘the universe truly conspires to help you achieve what you put into it.’ Today was a day not to be taken for granted.

In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.

We All Start as Strangers

It starts with a simple, “hello.” Chemistry takes it from there. Chemistry determines whether someone will become your friend, your significant other, or someone who came into your life to teach you a lesson. To test your strength, to break you down, and to give you no choice but to question, “what the hell am I doing?”

You can’t help the way you feel, so you keep going back for more. You know it’s toxic. It’s killing you, yet making you feel so alive. How can it be? How can the same thing that’s bringing you so much happiness cause you so much pain? You keep repeating your same mistakes, but hoping for a different outcome. Insanity ensues. “Leave before it’s too late. Go before you fall deeper.” That little voice inside your head screams at you. But, you stay. You want more. Because this is what you do. You wreak havoc and bring heartbreak upon yourself. How far will you push yourself? Why are you testing these limits?

The limits were pushed to the extreme. No more. This can’t go on. Brace yourself because this is the demise.

And just like that, everything came crashing down. Every decision you know you should have made before was made for you right then.

And that was it.

That was goodbye.

Spending my Saturday setting goals for myself. In order to accomplish something, one must set forth a plan. A plan gives you a vision, a vision gives you a path and a path, if taken, puts your plan into fruition.

Anonymous asked: what are some fun things to do in california?

Go hiking, go kayaking, go paddle boarding, Bon fire on the beach, biking in PB, walk around old town San Diego, go to Griffith observatory in LA, hike to the Hollywood sign…pretty much endless amounts of things to do.

7 years ago the best thing in the world happened. It came in the form of four paws, black and tan fur and the heart of a saint. I could not ask for a better puppy to have raised and am so thankful I caved when those big brown eyes stared at me, giving me no choice but to become a pup-mom. Happy birthday Tyson!

So many people wish their life away without even realizing it…Wishing for the weekend, wishing for 5pm to come, wishing for Monday to be over with, etc. I was one of those people that made those wishes. I knew that in the blink of an eye, my life would have passed by having really only looked forward to 2/7 days of the week. Something with that didn’t settle right to me and as was instilled in me, “if you don’t like something, change it.” So, here I am, excited that every day I get to watch the #sunrise AND #sunset. Life goes by too quickly to not look forward to each and every day.
