I’m Thankful for What I have πŸ˜ŠβœŒπŸŒ»

Hello Everyone, 

Since it is Monday today I decided to simply do a blog post about what I am thankful for.  These past few months have been full of ups and Downs that I sometimes tend to keep focusing on the negative moments that I have had more,  than on the positive moments that I have experienced.  Being thankful is mostly something that we think about in November for Thanksgiving,  but I try to think every month what I am thankful for;  but honestly I do forget sometimes.  So here are five things that I am thankful for:

1. I’m thankful for having a loving boyfriend who loves me for who I am and respects me. It was not a love at first sight,  it was more of like a love that happened unexpectedly but in a good way. 

2. My family and friends,  even though I have not had the chance to go visit my family in Orange County,  California,  I do miss them a lot.  Calling my mom and my twin sister helps though.  I also miss my friends a lot and hopefully someday I can see them again. 

3. Having a job is another thing that I am thankful for.  I used to struggle looking for a job in which I can support myself financially with out relying on my parents a lot.  Having a job as a CNA has helped me understand the value of helping others.  

4. Loving my unique self and accepting my natural beauty is something that I am truly thankful for because there have been times in my life while growing up that I have felt insecure about myself,  and my physical image.  I have also struggled with my self-confidence,  I used to listen and take to heart what everyone thought about me,  to the point that I would let everyone’s negative comments affect me in negative way. 

5. Continuing with my higher education is another thing that I am thankful for because coming Mexican immigrant parents,  I have learned the value of having an education and working hard towards my dreams and goals is something to be proud of in life.  My parents we’re not so fortunate enough to get a college degree because they had to work to provide for themselves and their families so my parents have always instilled me and my siblings to work hard and to never give up on our own dreams and goals no matter how challenging it may seem. I want to have a career in writing,  so it is something that I am working on right now,  and even though it may seem challenging I do not want to give up in my goal of publishing a novel someday. 

My Top 5 Favorite Movies Right Now

1. The Anne of Green Gables Sequel 

I like the 1985 version of Anne of Green Gables series. I feel like they are more close to the classic novels by L. M.  Montgomery. Sullivan the director of these three beautiful movies did an amazing job at choosing actors that could portray the novel’s characters so well. He did an awesome job in making the novels come to life in a meaningful way. 

2. October Sky

I love this 1999 movie because it is really inspirational and motivating.  I remember I first saw it when I was a junior in high school,  my U. S History teacher showed it to us one during class,  and I will never forget how much it motivated me to keep on working towards my own dreams and goals.  It also reminded me of the struggles and challenges I have gone through and still go through in my life right now. 

3. Mean Girls

I like this 2004 movie,  not only because it is a funny movie about teenage life in high school,  but also because it portrays in a meaningful and humorous way how teenage girls would go far to be popular in high school,  and also it touches on the subject of bullying and how it can affect everyone,  even teachers. 

4. 500 Days of Summer 

This 2009 movie I like how it portrays how love really is in reality.  Finding true love does not always happen by first sight,  or does not always end like in the fairy-tale stories.  Sometimes love comes to us in unexpected ways. 

5. The Perks of Being A Wallflower 

This 2012 movie really is one of the most moving and realistic movies that I have seen so far that really hits my heart so much,  and makes me emotional in so many good ways.  It really makes me think a lot about life,  love,  relationships,  and accomplishing good things in life despite what happened to us in the past.  Logan Lerman did a really great job in portraying Charlie,  who is a wallflower from the start,  but he becomes friends with two free-spirited high school Seniors who show him the way,  and the ropes of what high school is all about in a fun and meaningful way.  This is a movie that I really would not stop watching because it shows the main character’s struggle with his personal life,  and coping with the loss of his Aunt. 

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. 

What Music Means to Me

Every song means life, passion, love, and stories told in lyrics.
What is life without music?
The banning of music would mean the banning of all it’s beauty and joy.
Music is my ears best friend.
It has comforted me through my darkest days.
Songs lyrics give me something to believe in, to give me hope and faith in a world that has no light of hope I just put on my headphones and play the music that feeds my soul, that reminds me always to keep on going in spite of the challenges in front of me.
I have a million favorite songs that play inside my head day and night they keep me company whenever I feel lonely and scared.
Spreading a good song is like spreading positivity into the world.
As an introvert it let’s me express myself when no one is willing to listen to me. It gives me a chance let myself be free and to get rid of anything that is bothering me inside. 

Enchanted Love

You mark my heart
Leave me breathless,
full of wonders
Enchanting is your love
I never want to leave you,
There will never be anything
Tearing us apart.
You brighten up my dark days,
Help me see the positive things in life.
We stick like glue
Two hearts attached
Born to be with you.
Enchanting is your love
Never want to be away from you,
Always keep my heart on lock and key with anyone else, but you unlock my heart.
Enchanted love.

Kiss away the Rain

Wednesday rain
Cold air seeps into my bones
Chilling me right to the core
Of my dreams, my hopes.
Thoughts race through my
Fragile mind
Confusing me on and on.
Then you came like the rain
Unexpectedly washing away
All my fears that drowned
My heart, my mind.
Spend enough time with you
Is all i want,
This rain is only separating us
On and on.
Dont leave me now,
Lets kiss away the rain far
Away from us.

Real Love

Hello Everyone,

Real love is like real life.
There are no Prince Charming
In the real world.
As humans it is easy to fantasize, to believe that there are such things as fairytale love.
As we grow older, life`s experiences make us realize that there truly is no such things as fairytale love, it does not exist.
True real love happens when you least expect it.
As people in the 21st century, we have to wait for real true love to come to us, not chase after the perfect man or womenΒ  of our dreams.
It is time to embrace our single status and be happy within ourselves, to do whatever makes us happy.

To me Valentine’s Day is about not just about showing love to the people close to your heart, it is also a time to learn to love yourself more, no matter how many scars you have from the past. This February 14, is a time to erase all of the hate that we have inside of us for ourselves or someone else and just show love to yourself and to others.

Love is one of the greatest gifts in the planet, let’s not waste it.

You Are My God

Hello Everyone :-)!

I want to share with you a poem that I wrote this Summer during my trip to Steubenville in San Diego with my church youth group. It was a three day weekend full of fun and celebration of how God is joy and true happiness. As a catholic I have come to realize that I need Him more than ever.

image

You are my God,
My Savior
The one who rescued me
From the dark hole
That I was stuck in.
Like a little girl,
I was scared and lost.

You are my God,
My Savior
The one who rescued me
From the deep wide
Sea of loneliness and doubt.

You are my God,
You shine a light
On my darkest days,
Your words of comfort
Renew my mind and soul,
They give me the confidence
That I truly need.
Faith in you is all I need,
Nothing else.

You are my God,
My only true friend.
Nothing else can compare
To the immense love You
Have for us all.
Even though we sometimes
Shy away from your love,
You amazingly never cease
To give up on us.
You only know,
That deep inside of us
There is this huge love
That we have for You
That will never fade.

You are my God.
You are my Savior.

Waiting for Love

Hello Everyone :-)!

Letting love in is kind of complicated especially when that special someone does not know how you feel for them.

image

For me, feelings of love came when I was in eighth grade. His name is Joseph and he was so nice to me πŸ™‚ I fell in love with his smile because his smile was so beautiful:-) we were both in the same Gym class and he would sit in front of me, I in the back. He would turn around and smile at me sometimes that my heart would just melt, making me speechless, full of blushing red on my face and ears.

image

The bad thing about all of this was that I kept my feelings of him to myself, I would be completely scared of telling him how I feel about him, because of the fear of rejection.

I think it was just puppy love, or not, may never know. Only God knows. I only hope to find my true love someday πŸ™‚ I have had crushes before but have not found the right person for me yet.

Besides, I am not rushing the need to date a guy that will sweep me off my feet, like in a song: ” for everything there is a season, turn, turn, turn, and a chance for every purpose under heaven.”Β  I have come to believe that it is best to wait until true love comes to me, I will wait patiently.

Here is a poem that I wrote on one of my notebooks about my deep longing to know if my crush had the same feelings for me, yes or no:

I wish I had the guts to tell you
How much I love you.
You are all wrapped up in your own world, and I in mine
That sometimes it is hard
To let out my feelings for you.

We are both two different people,
We don’t know each so well,
But if you give me the chance
Maybe, we can grow into something amazing.

I wish I had the guts to tell you
How much I live you,
But you are all wrapped up in your world, and I in mine.
It is sometimes hard to let out my feelings for you.
