These are all the items I took with me when Haris was going to lay down to take a nap. My intentions were to read each book for 20 minutes, journal for 10 minutes or so, work on a monologue, reassess my goals and plan, answer 2 emails, and read 3 others. Easy enough.
How much do you have?
I thought I lost something in my persona this past Friday. A few times throughout the day I would hear myself, “oh I would like to _____ or that would be nice to ______.” After saying/thinking these phrases a couple of times, I thought oh my gosh, where’s my will, drive, and initiative? Where’s my go get it attitude? What’s happening to me?
It, is Amelia, my bougainvillea plant (pictured below). We decorated our dark wooden balcony back in June with chairs, pillows, lights, a bright orange bench and small, bright orange table/stool, and a hummingbird feeder, we were both excited, and all that was missing were some plants.
When you think about your dreams or goals, what obstacles do you see? At what point do you think you’ll be stopped?

So if you’ve never been pregnant (and you happen to be me) the only concerns you may have when becoming pregnant are: morning sickness, stretch marks, that you shouldn’t ride a bike or surf or other fun activities like that, weight gain, and the fact that at some point the baby has to exit through there. I didn’t “know” there were other concerns. There’s actually a lot that can happen to you. And the internet and friend/foe pregnancy books depending on interpretation/application of the information can be to your mental benefit or detriment. Lol!
But oh buddy, something happened to my lower left back . . . and with perfect timing . . . before the plane ride back to California.
When I was little, I had dreams of being in the olympics, you should’ve seen my landing, arch back, and bow to the judges. My Dad even took the swings off of our swing set so I could practice. In that gymnastics gym, I learned two life lessons from not being allowed to say the word “can’t,” and from falling off the high beam.
Puppies have the cutest floppy ears, an always licking everything pink tongue, soft whines, clumsy feet, they’re adorable, sweet, loving, and oh yeah, they poop.
And last week, I went to a film festival . . .
