20141012-091830.jpgHow did I miss it! My blog turned a year old, and I missed it. LOL! Busy-ness, Life, et al… Ah, the trappings of life!

I am grateful I found this notification as a reminder of how much I do love my blog–eventhough I haven’t spent as much time on it lately–save for my gratitude journal which is reaching a year! Wow!

I also miss visiting your blogs and reading your posts, too. I was glad I had some moments to visit some blogs this morning. Soon though, I will have more time to do so. I can’t wait to visit yours and read your latest thoughts, poems, and stories!

20140818-203414.jpgI am grateful for this blog, and that I have published 500 posts! Wow! That’s a whole lot! HaHa!

Thank you for being a part of my journey. Cheers to another 500!

20140415-155300.jpgI had an opportunity to serve the community today with co-worker and friend, PDJ. We met some volunteers as well from our company, the staff and volunteers at the non-profit Loaves and Fishes, and the people of the community that we served.

It was an open hearted experience as we set up the dining hall, prep the food, prep the donated bread and items for the community to take from, and to serve the meals. It is always a time of gratitude to have a chance to give back to the community and have a part in giving warm meals, smiles, and kindness.

May you be blessed each day with happiness. May each day bring you opportunities to follow your bliss and passion. May love always light your path and keep you warm.

I am grateful for Oprah’s Lifeclass with Dr. Brené Brown, Part 1 (watching Part 2 soon). I may be one of the few people who haven’t heard of her, but I now know who Dr. Brown is. Wow!

Here are some of her quotes:

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.”

“Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection.”

“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.”

When I started this blog, I really vacillated on how much of myself to share. I was afraid of being vulnerable.

You see, this is my second blog. I started my first blog almost a year ago, and for the most part, it is anonymous. In it, I wrote about my past emotional and physical pain, and what I learned from facing my pain, abuse, mistrust, and my fears–in order to live my most authentic self.

I felt that my first blog helped me to face past baggages, cleanse, and find myself. I am grateful I was able to get a lot of things off my chest and make positive changes in my life. I feel that I have transcended most of the obstacles of my past and can now move on–which also meant, letting go of the first blog.

I knew that by putting this second blog up, I will publicly be putting myself out there, especially when I start working on my bucket list and posting images of my adventures as I complete them.

After watching part 1 of the Lifeclass with Dr, Brené Brown, I realized that vulnerability is also part of living life fully, and opening myself up is a brave thing to do and can help me connect much better with others.

Dr. Brown said, “there’s nothing more daring than showing up, putting ourselves out there and letting ourselves be seen.”

Being vulnerable allows us to be our most authentic selves.

I am grateful also to the people who have followed me thus far, and for sharing their own experiences, thoughts, and stories in their own blogs–and for showing their own vulnerabilities also. Thank you for our new connection and for inspiring me with you own posts.
