One of the things I really want to do in my lifetime is to travel :]. Travel anywhere and EVERYWHERE! One of the tops places on my list that I want to travel to is Greece .
Aw, Beautiful Greece. Just simply looking at this photo is peaceful. I can't wait until I'm actually there and can really take in it's tremendous beauty. :] Yep, it's officially added to my bucket list ;]

Love this!!!!

Story from MMT
Today, when I told him I was upset about my weight, he said, “Why? It's nothing but a number that matters entirely too much to too many. A number that doesn't tell the world how many lives you've touched. A number that doesn't tell the world what your passions are. A number that doesn't tell the world how your eyes sparkle when you smile. A number that doesn't define you in any way whatsoever.” MMT

Love is Blind...

Story from MMT
Today, my 75-year-old grandpa who has been blind from cataracts for almost 15 years said to me, “Your grandma is just the most beautiful thing, isn’t she?” I paused for a second and said, “Yes she is. I bet you miss seeing that beauty on a daily basis.” “Sweety,” my grandpa said, “I still see her beauty every day. In fact, I see it more now than I used to when we were young.” MMT

Sweet melodies...

Story from MMT
Today was the 10 year anniversary of my dad’s passing. When I was a kid he used to hum a short melody to me as I was going to sleep. When I was 18, as he rested in his hospital bed fighting cancer, the roles were reversed and I hummed the melody to him. I haven’t heard that melody since and almost completely forgot about it until last night. My fiancĂ© and I were lying in bed. We were turned on our sides looking at each other when he started humming the melody to me. He said his mom used to hum it to him when he was a kid. MMT

A will of good fortune..

Story from MMT
Today, the happy-go-lucky street performer/bum who has spent the last several years hanging outside our condo complex making residents smile by strumming funny, positive songs on his guitar and encouraging everyone who walks by to “smile and make today memorable,” is now an official resident of the complex. An elderly woman on the first floor deeded her mortgage-free unit to him in her will before she passed away last week. I remember her telling me once that this street performer had a way of “making her smile when no one else could.” MMT

Cab ride takes an unexpected right turn ..

Story From MMT

Today, I took a cab ride 16 blocks in Manhattan and when I got to my destination I realized I forgot my wallet at home. As I fumbled through my purse, trying to explain things to the cab driver and scrounge up enough cash, a man walked up behind me and handed me a $50 bill. “Thank you!” I said. “Let me have your address. I will pay you back.” He reached into his pocket, pulled out an old receipt and wrote down an address. “You can drop off my money here,” he said. This afternoon I went to the address he gave me and found myself standing in front of a soup kitchen that had a sign out front that said, “Accepting cash donations to feed the hungry.” I walked in and donated the $50.

So I came across this new website called, It is seriously the BEST website I have ever been to. It consists of story submissions from people who have witnessed something amazing.

I will be posting some of my favorite stories on here, but please still take the time to view it, because it truely is a beauty to read. :]

Motivation comes at the weirdest of times...

I have been wanting to lose weight/ get in shape pretty much ever since my thin little body turned curvy when puberty hit. I know that sounds bad, no little lady should worry about their body, but I was so used to being thin that I had a hard time with the changes when it happened, especially since everyone craved thin. Not to mention that with my body type, I can easy look over weight with just a few added pounds. So I like to keep up on it. But I had been slacking really bad. I wasn't exercising as much and ate bad foods, and slowly but surely I got really out of shape. And no matter what I did, I couldn't motivate myself for the life of me to exercise and get in a good workout. That was until my little brother started school, and I was the only person to take him. I don't have a car, so walking is our means of transportation. :] It's only been a week and a half and I'm already seeing differences in my body and mood. I'm seeing more definition in my legs and stomach and my back is just great. :] So I guess the way to get motivated, is to absentmindedly start working out. haha You have to trick yourself and Vuala, you can get want you want. ;] I'm now motivated enough to work out everyday, with the "100 workout"(I'll post about that later)every morning and walking every other day. :] AND IT'S ONLY BEEN A WEEK AND A HALF. So I'm excited to see how in shape I get in a few more months. :D Hopefully I can keep this up...

Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Keepsake Box can keep only memories.

I'm trying my hardest to keep up on my blogging, I find it a lot more difficult than imagined, mostly because my mind is in so much scrambles that it is hard to sit and get it together enough to write. But I must, even if it won't make much sense at the end. ..Have you ever sat and wondered how different your life is or is heading from where you thought you'd be a year or two ago? It might not be a good thing to do, but I find myself doing that a lot. More so now, that I went through our keepsake box and old memories were sprung to the surface. I wanted so many different things for myself. I wanted things to be so different. It might have not worked out for me that way, but that doesn't mean I can't fix that now. I spent so much time angry at how things are instead of trying to change them into what they could be. And maybe it didn't happen then, because it wasn't Gods plan. Maybe he felt it wasn't the right time, because he of coarse knew I wouldn't turn out the same. Maybe I needed to learn patience. But whatever the reason, gave me no reason to just put myself on the back burner and not change what I wanted. I'm done worrying about how others will be affected if I do this, or setting time aside to help others, so in return my plans get ruined or postponed. I've been attempting to go to Art and Dance school for YEARS now but have yet to do so due to others obligations and my own self doubt. I'm done with saying someday. I'm done with wishing and dreaming things will change. I'm ready to get my hands dirty and turn my life around in the direction I wanted it to start off with in the first place. One thing I have learned  through everything, is things change, for better or for worse, and you just have to go with it. And If it's changed in a way not suitable for you, then it's never to late to fix it. I don't want to live in the past anymore. I want that life I've dreamed of since I was little. And with the help of God, i will get it. I'm putting my blinder on and walking by faith and his lead now. Whatever is meant to be will be. But I'll never know what that is, unless I get out there and try to find it. It's time to put an end to this part of my life, and let a new begin.  A Keepsake box can keep only memories, not beginnings.

Song Romances an Obsession.

Have you ever heard a song, instantly fell inlove with it, and then for the next week(or how ever long you fancy) that song is always in your head, slipping your lips, and on constant repeat? I KNOW I SURE HAVE! Right now it is this beautiful and lovely song by The Civil Wars called "Poison and Wine". It is SOOO great I just can not get enough of it! :]

Back in the Habit.

So I decided to start a new blog on here after deleting my old one,so I can start off fresh. I didn't really know what to blog about on here, and blogging about my everyday,all the time, probably would put you to sleep.Then my blog would have more of a lullaby theme and that is not what I am going for ;]. So I decided to blog about....EVERYTHING! :D haha I will blog about myself, dancing, photography, art , alot of writing and ALOT  of music, just whatever comes to mind:] So really my blogs theme is really not to have one other than whatever is going on in my head. Eh, good enough :] Soooo here I go....
