Vete a buscar lo que te haga feliz!!

For those who speak spanish.. I want to share with you this...





I thought it was lovely, cheerful and so true!!

Tremendous delicious week-end!!

Gosh, this weekend was so much fun !!
Friday:
I met this guy and his wife! For those who arent familiar with college football (like me). This is Lavell Edwards a legend in BYU football, and I met him this friday. I even chilled in his house with some kids!

We had a dessert contest and he and his wifey were the judges *we all tide*. It was way fun.. my dessert wasnt that great probably we would end up in last place *joaquim faults he left the ice cream outside and it was melted haha* Besides, our little melting accident *lol*. We had fun, I think that was a really creative date! (it was outside of the typical byu dates).

After that we played cards, rockband and ate our desserts.

Then, I went dancing with Scott and Cacey... Way fun!! I like those kids a lot.... they are fun to be around!

Saturday:

Me and my family went to the sundance festival. We had not seen anyone famous but we had a blast! We ate caramel apple, pizza, we played in the snow, took pics, laughed our heads off.. I LOVE THEM!!! (I will post pics later)

I wish we could do this more often.. but since my parents lived in Ecuador this kind of gathering happens once a year.. but I'm so grateful for all the good times we had, have and we are having..!!

I saw the guy that I like or I used to like not sure yet!

Sunday:

We ate yummy homemade chicken soup (my fav), a long nap with my parents, taught kids!

HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT WEEKEND TOO!!

MONDAY SEE YOU TOMORROW!!

Insights of my Artistic creative Dancing day


This is me back in 2007.... by that time my life was all about dance 24/7.. I miss those days where I danced for hours. I realized that dancing makes me happy, feel alive, excited, and I get disconected to the world for a while.
Today I enjoyed my dance class it remainded me all my good times with my friends in my dance institute, all the crying, laughs, all the memories ( the good ones and the bad ones).
I'm making a coreography with my friend Alex just for fun!!
I want to be called dancer again.. but this will need work, preparation ,sacrifice and diet (mmm diet :S).
I will do it and by April I will be ready for the Dance Emsamble's auditions.
Viva la Dance!!

I want to explore beyond the dock of the bay


Today, so far has been a pretty nice day.. it was snowy that kinda bother me.. i was wearing flats and I got all wet! I was late to work .. but besides that everything looks like this is going to be a good day! I ate pizza for free, I'm feeling more inspiring to dance, I still have to write about myself and who I am for my class ..

I will love to be in a warm and quiet place, exploring beyond the dock.. but I cant complain life is treating me well enough and so far january and me are having a healthy love relationship..
I just want to say
I LOVE YOU LIFE

From now on...


Its official I dont have to work on nights anymore YEAHHH!! I got home today around 7:30 and it was the best feeling ever!

I'm so excited this semester.. that nothing seems to bother me lately!! This past couple weeks I have seen guys that I dated .. and it is so weird cuz they all are married now!!

Before that would bother a little bit, I felt like I wasn't progressing that I was stuck in the same place but now I'm so happy to be single. I can still do somethings in my own.. dont take me wrong it is not that i dont want to get married cuz I will love to have a family.... It is not the right time for me.. So now it is time to prepare and be ready cuz the special one can be in his way or maybe not...


YOU KNOW WHAT??
IM HAPPY WITH MYSELF


So from now on... ITS TIME TO ENJOY MY LIFE

Good start

I'm so freaking happy .. I learned a valuable lesson today about...

PATIENCE, HOPE, FAITH AND PRAY.


I applied to a job a couple weeks ago and for a moment i thought that I had it in my pocket, I thought she will call me tomorrow (cuz thats what she said)...
Next day... the phone rang i was excited .. a bunch of people call me that day.. but not the lady!!
I was heart broken, my mom tried to cheer me up but I could stop thinking about that..
Deep inside i thought they might call me later, maybe she got busy, or she didn't have time.. until i reached the point i knew that i didn't get the job..
My mom encouraged me to keep praying, I had my doubts but I did it.. and it worked because they called me TODAY... I'm starting on Thursday!! Life couldn't get any better

I'm so grateful!!


The best part is ...
I DON'T HAVE TO WORK ON NIGHTS YEAHHHH!!

Hope for Haiti

I was really sad about what happen in Haiti!! that make me realize how blessed I am and I need to be more thankful for what I have!! All the week I had been thinking what can I do.. and this quote came to my mind..

" I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do". ~Edward Everett Hale

I decide to create Hope for Haiti, this wont change the situation of hundrends of haitians but at least I decide to do something. God bless this humble people, they are in my prays!!

New start.. and a new beginning


This new year just started.. for being honest this first week was kinda crappy BUT...
Never it is too late to change and start all over again...
So here are my resolutions for this year!! (I know I should post them a week ago.. it is better do it late than never ..right?)

  • Run a 5k this year
  • Learn how to knit
  • I'm not going to say that I lose certain number of pounds but I comprise myself to work out more
  • Dance... go to many auditions as I can.
  • Use my credit card wisely.. and get out of debt
  • Travel to a place that I haven't been yet
  • Keep a journal
  • Make something nice and meaningful for someone.. (at least once a month)
  • Go to everysingle class that I am enrolled
  • Don't turn off the alarm unless I am really awake (no more pretending that I have extra 5 min unless I actually have those extra min)
  • Find a new job
  • Dont be afraid to try new food, activities or clothes.
  • Prepare my primary lesson before sunday
  • Read a book per month
  • Have a camera with me most of the time
  • Get my drivers license
  • Go to concerts
  • Walk my dog every morning!

Now it is public so I better wont mess up with my resolutions.. Im planning to stick to them!! Little changes make a huge difference..

I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the year's. ~Henry Moore

In other words this is how I feel today....

Happy...

Motivated..

Talented........

Bubbly..................

Inspired........................

In the clouds.......................

Smart.........................................

Positive..........................................

Today I went to my modern dance class..

The teacher remained me how talented I am

She says she will bug me if I decide to stay in her class (you know dance teachers are...

.when they say they will bug you.. it is cuz you have something there).

She suggested me to go to a higher level class.

Maybe .. for a second I forgot who I am and of what I am capable!I'm glad that she remained me

that I have something special..

The feeling of inadequacy was bugging me lately.. (I was feeling not smart enough and I thought this semester is wayyyyyy tooooooooo much for me) but I know I can do it!I better start believing in my potencial!! (for my own sake)

Happy weekend people!!!

100 .. Its always a good number

I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I've been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me - you're doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.
Anthony Do
err

Today, I'm celebrating my 100 post!!
(I make it sounds like it my b-day or my anniversary but this is important to me, so u better like lol)

I can't believe that I went through all those crazy, funny, happy,not so funny and not so happy storie
s!

Reading my stories make
me realize that:



Life is about....
making memories and living on the edge!!
Hanging up there and n
ot giving up
Dancing

True love and knowing that isn't just part of fairy tales.. ITS REAL!
Families are not just part of us.. they must be everything to us!
Making good friends and keep them close to you
Dreaming
Hoping
Loving someone,or something!
Being passionate
Love is magic.. just let it happen!
Enjoying little moments and forgetting the big tragedies
Dealing with hard times and overcoming them
Feeling good about yourself
Being yourself

LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS EASY BUT AT LEAST THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE JUST LOOK CAREFULLY AROUND YOU....
IT COULD BE TALKING WITH YOUR MOM, A HANDSOME BOY SMILING AT YOU, A GOOD SONG, A CHILD MEMORY, A SINCERE HUG, A CUTE DOG, YOUR DREAMS, SWINGING ON A SWING ... JUST TAKE A MOMENT BREATH AND IF YOU DON'T FIND ANYTHING AT LEAST YOU ARE STILL ALIVE AND THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN BE HAPPY FOR!

Enjoy your DAY!!

Traditions!







In Ecuador, Año Viejo is a tradition in which on December 31 people construct effigies made from old clothes, crumpled newspaper and homemade masks, and th
en burn them up. This symbolically burns up the regrets of the old year and ushers in the hopes of the new one.
After this, Im so ready for 2010!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!








New Year


We had a really nice New year's eve.. We ate ridiculous amounts of food! We all dressed up, and we were looking our best... It was cool to have my parents here, their presence made it so special and in someway I felt like I was in home...


Recap 2009

I'm so grateful.. this past year has been interesting to me! I had some up and downs but overall I had a good time! I learned a lot, I grew up a lot, I'm more aware of what i want in my life or at least what I really don't want..
So this are the 12 of best memories of this year:
  • I fell in love this year... even that things did work, I learn a lot about what I'm looking for in a guy.
  • I had a great b-day!! I like all the surprises and finally I turned 21!!
  • I grew up a lot.. I'm not a kid anymore... I'm a grow up lady!!
  • I struggle with school, relationship, etc.. but there were always someone there for me... either my family, a friend! God never left me alone this year!
  • I got to see brother!! It was a lovely summer !! I understood that true love never fade!
  • My cousin came to visit me.. It was a blast, having her with me remained me that happiness come from ourselves, and we can be happy no matter what we are facing!
  • I started this blog! I love to write my stories, my feelings, my adventures! Hopefully someday my kids will read it with me and we all will laugh together.
  • I went to Ecuador during the summer! As always being in home is wonderful, definitely i belong there..
  • I started my dream's list.. I'm planning to become true couple of those this year...
  • I got my patriarchal blessing.. I feel so loved, special and blessed.. Words can express how grateful I am for all I have and for who I am.
  • We spent Christmas with my parents!!! :)
  • I realized that no matter true friends are always there... I'm really thankful for all the friends that I have here.. and the friends that I have at home!
My bonus memory:
  • My testimony of the church grew a lot this year! I love to be connect to something greater that myself, something that for me is eternal and essential..
2009 thanks for all you did with me!! I learned a lot from you but it about time to move on and look forward so 2010 here we are!!
