BDV: Bubbly Moments

It has been one of those weeks where I didn't do much or take too many photos since it was kind of boring, to be quite honest. Boring can be good - hey, it can be very good, especially if you have had a lot of chaos in your life. It can very well be a welcomed relief.

Saturday was a fun and pretty day. My roommate and I went out for lunch, where we split two different burgers (from Blazin' Onion) and had both ordered the Strawberry Lemonade. So yummy.

We later went to the casino, where I've never been lucky in playing slots until then - I won $100! That was completely unexpected and awesome, and it will probably never happen again. Haha


I've been in such a flower frenzy lately since it has been starting to look and feel like spring. I'm very excited to see flowers and blooms again... aren't these flowers gorgeous? We were at Home Depot looking at stepping stones to put in our driveway for safety, and I had to look in their nursery.

I've been teasing Ernie-cat all week with catnip-scented bubbles. At first, he was scared of them when they were floating in the air - until he smelled them, and then went nuts. Going nuts for him is throwing himself down on the floor and passing out though, so it's not quite what I had intended for those bubbles to do. Silly cat! =^.^=

For the first time in a really long time, I had vlogged. I've started anew on healthier eating path in an attempt to lose weight (again) and Monday was my last day of old habits...as you'll see.

I've been trying to clean up my "Inspiration Station" and make it more functional. I have stuff everywhere, but it is slowly coming together. I plan on blogging more about the process of making it look pretty sometime in the future. It's obvious that Ernie-cat was waiting for me to let him back inside.

Speaking of....

I'm now ready to head off to bed and cuddle this little furbaby munchkin - he is how curled up right next to me in his sleepy half-asleep mode waiting for me to get comfy so he can get fully comfy. 

Good night and sweet dreams!

Creating Pockets of Adventures

Blessed. This is the perfect word to describe my life. While not everything goes in the direction I hope, nor does it ever happen in the ways I plan, it's mine and I have joy. More often than not, I face obstacles and sometimes rather painful experiences that I find to be overwhelming at times. All the same, I conquer. I have faith in a few things: a higher power, that higher power within me, and in myself. Faith always carries me through and has brought me to where I am.
I think my life to be somewhat average in many ways. I am not poor, but I am not wealthy. I can usually obtain the things I want if I plan for them and budget in most instances. However, I wasn't always affluent enough to afford small luxuries, such as my beloved Starbucks habit or my car. These two things would have exceeded my budget by far if I were 23-years-old again.  
Though, one thing that I am wealthy with is ambition. I've always been wealthy with ambition. If I want something, I find a way to m…

I Didn't Know What to Say

This world is full of both wonderful and heartbreaking circumstances that wear us down daily. As a nation, we are mourning another tragedy where violence has torn apart communities and families - and for what purpose? We just don't know.
I didn't write on this yesterday because I didn't know what to say. I've read that it's the deadliest mass shooting in American history. I don't know what's more sad to me: that this deplorable act is something that I feel numb towards given the increasing numbers of shootings and tragedies we are seeing nationally, or the act itself: where some random person unbeknownst to even his own family made a decision that forever altered the lives of millions of people. 
The biggest encouragement and consolation I can try to provide is to continue to shine the light into the darkest corners of the world. Whether you emit joy and love, peace or kindness, these are a few ways to impact the world in a positive way that anybody can gi…

Compassion

Months ago, I filmed a video about compassion and empathy. When I downloaded it to my computer, I didn't have the time or the drive to edit and upload it... until today. I re-watched the full 11:37 video and realized that my message was very clear and that it applies just as much to today as it did when I originally filmed it in November. 
Compassion. It's something that many people lack - not on purpose, but out of convenience. Out of carelessness. Without a thought. People aren't bad because of it, rather unaware and lacking mindfulness of who is around them and how they may be feeling.
I wanted to share this video as a reminder for people to view other people as humans - as people just like themselves. To have empathy and compassion because you just do not know what another person is going through.


Lovingly yours,
Em
