Alice in Wonderland

Ok so I got to see my first 3D movie ever and it was…yes, Alice and Wonderland!  The movie was AMAZING!  The visual effects by themselves were incredible…not to mention I just love the story line!!  Here’s the trailer if you haven’t heard of this movie….

It makes me wish I had seen Avitar in 3D.  Well, just watched it period.  I completely missed it when it was in theatres.  Oh well, there’s always DVD.  Anyway, I just had a nice relaxing day in general.  After the movies we came home and played some bones.  I love Dominoes…and let’s face it…I am waaaayyyy to competative! lol

Well, I apologize for not posting on here as much as I would like.  I am getting a little worried about how many few hits I’ve had lately.  They’ve dropped drastically.  Any advice on how to get your blog more popular?  You know it’s my dream to eventually get my journals completely transferred on here, get a following, and then one day get on Oprah. lol I know is pretty far-fetched; but I’ve always been told to shoot for the moon because even if I fail, I will stand amidst the stars.  I would love to be a professional blogger.  And yes, I do think I am interesting enough for people to want to read what I have to say.  I have a voice and am just trying to get it out there.  Poetry in words or something like that.

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week.  I will be leaving in exactly five days to my tropical paradise in the Mexican Riviera!  When I get back I will let you know about the perfect excursions, events, and will be posting pictures!  I hope to make it back on here before I leave…but I’m not sure how that will work out…


Pocket Full of Sunshine


There’s a place that I go that nobody knows, where the river flows; and I call it home.  And there’s no more lies, in the darkness there’s light; and nobody cries…there’s only butterflies…..

It’s funny that no matter how old you are; you continue to learn and grow.  Hindsight is always 20/20 and wisdom really does come with age.  I’ve learned the best way to handle a problem is to confront it head first and the quickest way to get past something is to move right through the problem and not around it.

In life we go through a lot of things and hardships; and most of those things we bring upon ourselves.  I know it sounds completely cliche’ but really I’ve come to the understanding that it’s not what we go through in life that defines us; its how we deal with our circumstances.  And for some reason, some of us (*ahem* speaking about myself…) have to go through life learning things the hard way.  And I know I’m supposed to say I have a lot of regrets and wish I had done things differently (well there are some things I wish I could take back or completely eliminate) but the fact is, all of the things I have gone through have made me the person I am today.

I guess the purpose of this blog is to just communicate that you need to love yourself; if you don’t, how do you really expect anyone else to?  Life shouldn’t be lived in fear of doing the right or wrong things ; it shouldn’t be about regret.  There’s simply what you do and what you don’t do.  Life is about choices; it’s about being present and aware and trying to make the best possible choice.  And if you fall, dust yourself off and learn from it.  Those are probably the most valuable lessons you’re going to learn in life.
