I’ve recently liberated myself of things holding me down and holding me behind. I thought that I knew how heavy the weight was anchoring me down but it is not until now that I feel free that I know how heavy that weight was. I look at my reflection in the mirror and see a reborn person free of that heaviness that carried inside of me. It boggles my mind that I thought I knew the extent of the heaviness before I felt the freedom but now I know that I can only know the weight now that I am weightless.

Self Realization Meditation Gardens| Has to go on the list for one of the most beautiful and serene places in San Diego County. It has a magical essence to it that can only be felt there. The lush greenery, the ponds and the flowers are all almost fairy tale like. The view of the ocean, standing on the cliff is dream like in the literal sense. The only word to accurately describe this location is…perfect. I could stay here forever.

Feeling low? Feeling unmotivated? Take a step back and let yourself do the things that make your heart and soul happy. Living a busy, stressful life but love to read? Take 30 minutes out of your busy day to read your favorite book or an old book. It will improve your mood by doing something your soul appreciates. Think you are too busy to go for that sunset jog? Set aside 20 minutes at the end of your day to take that jog and be thankful for the happiness in your life. Sit outside with a cup of your favorite tea and enjoy the flowers and the birds bustling around. It will improve your mood and your happiness to do the little things that make you happy. Enjoy the natural beauty around us. It is free and so moving to see how nature works and blossoms. Take deep breaths be grateful for this time because it is only given once. Listen to your favorite song or your favorite album on repeat and reminisce on the wonderful memories it brings back. Just take the time to make your soul happy.

Exactly how I am feeling today. Motivated, ambitious and optimistic. If you can dream it, you can do it. We may face diverse obstacles and monumental obstacles at times but it is just as easy to turn the negative thoughts into positive, proactive thoughts. Think of the can’ts and the no’s and think of ways to turn them into yes’s and cans. Be creative in your solutions and never lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel. There are plenty of thoughts, adventures and ideas that seem impossible but with some dedication, hard work, creativity and motivation, there can be a way to find a solution. Think outside of the box and think of the potential possibilities that may arise. The outcome with these potential solutions may be better in the long run than the state you may be in at the moment. Best of luck and be positive in whatever you strive to do, the Universe is in your favor!

Missing beautiful Costa Rica today. Missing the air, the animals, the people, the delectable food (especially the dairy) and the nature. I surprisingly even miss the winding, bumpy streets that you curse at when you are actually driving them. I miss getting lost in the streets because of the lack of street names and addresses. I miss the pulperias and the candies that one can only find in Costa Rica that I hoard and fill my suitcases with. I miss the laughter of the kids playing on the streets as they look as happy as can be playing with the simplest of toys. I miss the ocean and my sea critter friends. I miss the sound of the waves crashing and the sunset as beautiful as it is day in and day out. I miss that you can drive 5 minutes from a neighborhood community and find a man who has horses you can ride for hours for less than $10. I miss the menus in restaurants and being able to order the most exotic fruit drinks or fruit salads imaginable. I miss the hospitality and kindness of the Ticos and Ticas. The ones that will make you feel at home even if you are 5,000 miles away. I miss seeing the hunger of Ticas and Ticos for education. They thrive off of learning each day and bettering themselves for the hope of a better tomorrow. I miss Costa Rica.

San Diego beach after the storm. Just like summer or warmer days, tourists flock to the coast to get a glimpse of the seals and of the larger than usual waves. The air is crisp, cool and is filled with salt. The atmosphere is refreshing and re energizing. The sea is so big and it constantly reminds us of it’s size and depth.

Do all things with kindness. Whether it is in your social life, work life, personal life or with complete strangers…be kind. Mark Twain could not have expressed kindness any better. It is something we feel and can make others feel. It is just as easy to be kind as it is to be unkind.
