Day Off - About that Superbowl Anyway...

So, yesterday I took a break from blogging. *Gasp* I know, I promised to blog every day, and that is a very good intention indeed, and not something that I will give up on so easily. However, I did need yesterday to regroup and to just focus on relaxing.

The Super Bowl happened, as most of the country is aware, and I watched every crazy moment of it from my bed. I did have Super Bowl plans with friends, but they fell through for me last minute, but I won't go into that here.

How many of you watched the game? The last quarter was so devastating, particular in the last 50 seconds of the game. Who would have thought that that pass would have been intercepted in that way?! I cringed when I saw Lynch not catch it, but instead, Butler grasping the ball in that end-zone. Whaaat?! NO! That's all I can remember yelling at my screen. That pass would have won us (I mean the Seahawks) the Superbowl.

But... amidst all chaos and the the so-called-infamy of that ill-fated pass, I am still glad for the amazing game and the hard-working athletes who work so hard for their teams. Even though the Patriots won and I am a sad #12, I have to say that it was a great game and a good win. Congratulations, Patriots, you deserve the win. We'll see you again next year!

Also, how about that half-time show? Katy's set was stunning, and Lenny rocked it. Also - what a great surprise to see Missy Elliott.  I don't recall her being announced as a performer, so that was news to me. Good news.

On an ending note, are you excited for this year's win? Who do you think should be the MVP? I'm thinking Butler for his crazy interception that secured their win. 

Have a wonderful evening, loves.

By the way, have you seen my Seattle Seahawks inspired makeup look? I wore this twice last week in my support for my home-team:

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
