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:

Sacred Storytelling

Over the past year, I've begun to uncover my purpose in this life - what am I here for and how do I find fulfillment in that purpose? Is it ongoing or is it a one-time goal that I will eventually achieve? What then if that is the case?
There are so many questions to ponder and endless thoughts about the what-ifs and hypothetical future I could potentially have, based on the notion that I knew exactly what my purpose was, that is.
I've known that I'm meant to be a storyteller - that I am a writer and creator, but that alone didn't resonate with me or drive me to work towards any one goal of actually being those things. I already was those things, but there wasn't a sense of fulfillment from bestowing upon myself these titles. Works have been created, but to no real purpose or reason. The question is how to make this state of being something more tangible...more real.
It wasn't until a couple of weeks ago when I read an article about Reese Witherspoon who spok…

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…

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…
