Secrets....

Secrets... do you have any? Of course you do everyone does and its ok. It could be good or it could be bad, there are so many different ones. After looking at several art books by Frank Warren called PostSecrets I began to realize that there are def. more than a couple that I can relate to.

It's amazing to see all these post cards with all these secrets from people around the world. It makes you realize, learn and look even further into the idea that we're all so different yet so the same because we can relate to so many of the secrets that others have. Some secrets come from fear, loneliness, happiness, regret, etc. These people are anonymously sharing their secret with the whole world, so it becomes public, but thats the irony in this whole project and its what makes it so interesting and compelling. It's when art and spirituality come together, its one of the most interesting books/projects I have come across in a long time. I know I have touched on this in a previous blog, but I do truly encourage everyone to check out either his books or his website and you'll see for yourself what difference it will make in your life, in a positive way.

The Journey to Happiness.....

Lately I've been concentrating on being happy and I'm finally on my way to that journey. Remember happiness is a voyage not a destination. It's important to remember that in the end of the day its all about you. Keeping positive is a great way to start your journey to happiness.

Try to concentrate on all the good things in your life and ways to keep them that way or even make them better. As for this month I'm super excited about the new work I've been into lately which is Styling and all the pros and cons that come with it. It's FUN! I'm also super excited about the NYE party my friends and I are putting together. Got all the decorations today and its going to be beautiful. This year its better to keep the celebration on an intimate level. It going to be glamourous and I can't wait.
If you're going big this NYE please be safe and careful, tis not the year to do big but its all about you and what you make out of it! Don't forget to make all your NYE resolutions and stick to them. It's all about making goals and working towards achieving them. Some of mine are to keep searching ways to find an amazing career this coming year, go to sleep earlier, be nicer (sometimes lol), accept people for who they are more than I have before, and just be HAPPY! 

I want to wish everyone to have an amazing 2010, make those resolutions whatever they may be to you and follow your DREAMS!

yesterday....

Yesterday was a long interesting day with lots of lessons. Remember that everyday that you live you always learn at least something. My day started off pretty sad I must say it was raining and I wasn't really in the greatest mood but I went with my friends for a little sample sale shopping when I got home my spirits were still down, I set myself to think positive and move forward with the day.

I went to have lunch with my mom to tell her something I was keeping from her for over 3 months. I broke up with my boyfriend over a week ago and she had no clue that were even ever back together in the first place and I had a big health scare several weeks ago and I was in and out of the clinic and my mother was very stressed out and she had no clue who was the cause of all this. I finally opened up to her and told her the truth . It was by far the hardest thing to do, but I had to, I've never lied to my mom before. She wasn't happy with the news because she knows that my ex was terrible to me but thats all in the past now, like I said in my first blog on here, he's now a stranger I don't ever want to encounter or even engage in any kind of conversation. The pain and hurt this person put me thru is something I don't wish upon my worst enemy if  I was to ever have one. Nonetheless, I wish him all the best and I hope he finds help in all the areas he lacks and maybe finally become a civil human being.

Further into the day, I went to work and after met up with my friends to watch "Up in the Air," at the movie theater I ran into my doctor whom I used to work for over 4 yrs, it was my first real job. I must say we had a falling out but I'm very thankful for everything I learned at that job because I carry it with me now and am thankful for the lessons. Let's get back to the film. It was amazing, and I recommend for everyone to check it out. It's a film that makes you think about life, the importance of everyday, the values you carry with you, the difference in every person and the reality is that none of us are the same. We may be physically alike but we all see life and happiness in a different way, we are all our own person. Some of us believe in marriage others don't, some of us want this life and others want that kind of a life, everyones definition is different and you know what that's okay, it's what makes us all so interesting.

The most important lesson of yesterday was that without my friends I wouldn't know what I would do. I'd like to thank all of you who have stuck it out with me thru thick and thin and I appreciate and cherish every moment that I have with you. And when I'm so enthusiastic when I'm with you guys its because I really feel that way and I'm happy to be in your presence. Thank you J and S for yesterday all the input you gave me was very powerful and helpful.

Life is too short to dwell and stress over past obstacles in life, the only way is to move forward and look towards the future. Appreciate what you have and you will learn to achieve more. Live to the fullest and enjoy every moment in your life. Stay positive and you will all be fine, I promise.
Goodnight and G-d Bless.
