My First Flight

Hello Everyone,  ðŸ™‚

My first flight was amazing it was was unlike being in an airplane where you know where you are going,  you know your destination.  

This type if flight is more than amazing,  it is enchanting;  it is what I always dreamed it would be.  I feel the cool breeze touch my curly wild hair not wanting to tame it,  it moves wildly with the dancing of the wind.  My heart beats wildly with unknown anticipation at where I will end up visiting.  

It is my one adventure that I will never forget.  I wildness inside me as it makes me realize that this flight is changing me in so many ways;  it is helping me grow as I spread my wings high in the clouds of dreams and magic.  I used to be afraid of flying on my own,  and spreading my wings into the unknown,  but with the help of dear friends and family,  I have learned to see the beauty of flying and to explore the unknown. 

Life Changes

Hello Everyone, 

I have been super busy with work that I just come home really tired to even post something meaningful on my blog. Today I have the opportunity to finally post something. 

Life moves me like a rollercoaster up and down, making me feel like life is not how I expected it to be when I was younger. When I was younger life seemed so simple and easy that it felt like if nothing in this world could hurt me. As I grew older, it got complicated every time. I was afraid more often and anxious, shy, and nervous all the time. I was also less self-confident in myself. 

 Today that I am 25 and almost turning 26, I look back often into my past while growing up in Orange County and think to myself. I have gone through so much difficulties and challenges in my life that I feel like life is one big rollercoaster full of challenges. 

Every day I am learning to not to worry too much, to love myself as I truly am, and to embrace life’s challenges and difficulties in a positive way. 

Lately I have been liking sunflowers because they exude happiness, sunshine,and warmth all around. 🌻🌻🌻☮️🙂🙂🌻🌻🌻

Two things I Learned in My Teen Years

Hello Everyone ☺️

I have lately been nostalgic about my teen years. I guess being 25 years-old makes me want to reminiscing about my years growing up in Orange County. 

Whenever I think about my teenage years, I think of the two things that I learned, the first is having self-confidence in my physical image, and in my own self that I can accomplish my own dreams and goals. Then the second one is not letting other people’s negative comments and opinions about me bring me down.  

In high school I would often tell my parents that I wanted to be an actress and be on movies, and television shows; they thought I was just in a phase of dreaming big and not thinking realistically in choosing a career. But I honestly did want to study acting and be a professional. I took two years of theatre in my sophomore and senior year of high school to prove my parents that I seriously wanted to study acting as a career and job, but I made the huge mistake and regret of letting my mom tell me not to study acting because it wasn’t a realistic career for me to take. I listened to her instead of taking the big risk of going on my own to study acting. 

I have learned to not let other people, such as my mom make desicions for me based on what I should do in my life. I have learned to think for myself and what I want to do in my life. 

It is important to have the freedom and happiness to choose what career or job we want to do in life, no matter what friends, family, or others say. Loving my true self is important too. Oftentimes in high school and middle school, I would often wish to be good-looking and perfect as other girls in magazines or in my school, but it took me a long time to love, and appreciate my own outer beauty. I have come to love my petite height, my younger-than-my-age physical image, my imperfect nose, and my bushy, frizzy curly black hair. I am done wishing I could be perfect, those days of being miserable about my image are long gone. 

Now I love and embrace my imperfect self. 🙂❤️

Moon

The moon lights up the dark night sky. 

I look up from my bedroom window 

My brown eyes are filled with wonder and 

Enchantment at the luminous light that is 

The moon.

I don’t need chaos in this world, only the 

Beautiful moon to admire for it’s true beauty

Lights up the night sky for you and me.

It’s mystical eyes look down on me

As if the moon was my best friend, I smile

At the moonlight shining below me.

Yearning

My soul yearns to love you

A million times more than what

You want to give me. 

I love you more than you can imagine, 

More than the moon, the enchanting stars 

Above us, and the sun that warms me 

With a deep love for you. 

I only hope and pray that you

Truly see the yearning of love that I 

Feel for you. 

For now it is worth the risk to yearn for you 

My lover. 

The Cave of Dreams

There is this cave I found

In the middle of the shining lake

I can see its reflection

Smiling down at me.

Its a cave unlike any other, 

I go inside it where there is no darkness, 

Where there is no sadness, and coldness

All around me there are images of dreams. 

Dreams that make up me and you. 

This cave of dreams will never fade, 

It will always be here for me, for you. 

New Year, New Me

2017 is here bringing me joy and excitement at what is to come my way. I wait for the coming months. 

I wake up with positive energy and good vibes. I want to start anew, make new memories this year, learn new things that I never though I would learn, create new and rewarding experiences, be open to change continuously, and seek new ways to be a better person each day. 

Of course, I will struggle along the way, but those struggles will never keep me from flying up high to the mountain of happiness. 

Winter Magic

Winter magic fills me with endless joy, wonder, and imagination. 

I close my eyes and fill the smell of the chilly air with wishes of snow-covered houses. The warmth of my black and white checkered sweater fills me images of cozy warm fireplaces. The simple joy of drinking hot cocoa, making a gingerbread house with a loved one, or listening to Christmas music brings the genuine magic that I crave to bring me up from my gloom. 

Walking outside where it is raining, and cloudy I create in my mind the image of a place full of winter magic surrounding me. I may be feeling cold, but I will keep the images of winter magic to keep me warm, and joyful. 

My First time visiting the Sundial Bridge

Hello Everyone, 
I visited the Sundial Bridge which is located in Redding, California. It was me and my boyfriend’s first time seeing the Sundial Bridge, so we went with a fellow friend who guided us around this monument in the evening which made it creepier and scarier than I thought because there were bats flying outside in the cold dark night, and what was more creepy was there were millions of spiders attached to the dark tunnels that we had to walk through on our way to the bridge, I was holding on to dear life my boyfriend’s arm praying that one of them wouldn’t come near me or touch me. Unfortunately, my boyfriend told me that he saw a big spider almost touch my head, but it did not which was a relief, but made me feel paranoid and scared at the same time. 

Walking the Sundial Bridge and seeing nature all around me, the stars and the clear night sky with the moon illuminating the lake below us made me feel infinite, and full of joy at the thought of living in a world that is so wondrous, and amazingly beautiful.
