Taking a little time travel…

I can’t believe I wrote my first blog in November 2011. Yes, 2011, it’s been almost three years. That’s just insane. I’ve spent a few hours today re-reading and reliving the emotions of my blogs. I came across a few that I immediately thought “What was I thinking?” and others brought tears to my eyes. I felt like I was writing them for the first time all over again. I even wrote two short stories: Amor {Love} Chapter I – Chapter IV ; Obsession Part I – Part V.  I’m very proud of myself for writing those stories, I hit some writers block along the way but I was able to over come the mental block and finish them. I even considered rewriting the ending of Obsession, due to harsh criticism but I’m happy I did not. Perhaps, the next stories will be better, you’ll have to wait and read.

I noticed there are gaps in between months as I scrolled down and then I realized that during the most important time of my life, I didn’t write my experiences and feelings during my pregnancy.  I remember going through so many emotions, up and down.  It was the most amazing and beautiful time of my life.  I’m getting teary eyed just thinking about it.  That’s my cue to stop…

Until next time…Ciao

 

 

Sad day.

My thoughts and prayers are with ALL in Boston today. Another senseless act of terror was committed and it’s heart breaking.  When will we be able to come together as one and be at peace? I fear for my niece, nephews, god child, and the children of my loved ones and friends.  They are growing up in a world full of anger and hate.  Why, why why!?  I fear of what’s to come if things don’t change.

I pray for a world full of love and laughter.

I pray for a world with no judgements.

I pray for a world with no hate.

I pray for a world where you are accepted regardless of color or race.

I pray for a world where we ALL can get along.

I shall not live in fear thinking about these senseless acts of terror nor should anyone else.  Live your life to the fullest.  Be kind to everyone you meet.  Be less judging and more accepting.  Don’t hate. Fill your heart with love. Forgive and forget. Life is too short.

It’s a sad day…

My prayers are with all in Boston.

Reflecting back…

It’s been over four weeks since I post anything. Yikes!!  I guess I needed the break and realized during the process that I was putting too much pressure on myself.  It’s OK not to be OK.  I don’t have to beat myself up if I don’t post daily.  Sometimes you need to take a step back, adjust the setting and see things with new eyes.

Today is a special day for all of us, it’s a day of remembrance and unity.  It’s sad that a tragedy has to occur for a Nation to come together.  11 years ago, I was in my office when I heard the news about the twin towers.  I ran into the conference room where some co workers were already watching the news.  We all stood in silence and horror as we watched the events unfold before our very eyes.  All I could think about was my family and friends who live in NY.  At that moment, all I could do was think the worst.  Minutes seemed like hours trying to call while the lines were busy.  I could not help but breathe a sigh of relief when I finally received news of my loved ones.  Everyone was doing OK.  My deepest and sincerest condolences for those who lost their loved ones during this senseless attack.

A day we will always remember. God bless all those who lost their lives and those they left behind who remember that day with great pain and sorrow. Let’s also take a moment to honor and remember those who have and continue to sacrifice their lives every moment to achieve peace and freedom for all.

Why can’t everyone just get along despite their political and religious views? Perhaps in a perfect world.

September 11, 2001 – I will never forget.

Peace & Love always… xox

A moment of Clarity…

After reading an email this morning, I had a moment of clarity.  It was now clear to me that I had misread an entire situation.   I’ve learned that I can’t make any assumptions based on what I’m feeling at the moment even if  I think the person is on the same page.   How would I know? How could I tell?  These are questions that I’ve asked myself and the answer is clear, I don’t know.  I don’t have the ability to read minds so how would I have known I was an innocent by standard caught in the crossfire of someone’s discovery.  It is remarkable when you think about it.  You never know what a person is struggling with internally.  At the end, you can’t expect people to walk around wearing their emotions on their sleeves.

Moments of clarity happen at any given time.  You could be having  a random conversation with a stranger and in a second you have an epiphany.  It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, these moments do happen.  Embrace them!

A special thanks to my friend who finally made it clear for me to understand.

Clarity of mind means clarity of passion, too; this is why a great and clear mind loves ardently and sees distinctly what he loves.”

Until later..  Peace & Love xoxo
