- My little sister has her class schedule for her first semester of college. Boy, where did time go? In exactly a month, she will join my other sister in San Antonio. Adjusting to the absence of both of my sisters is going to be tough.
- Sir, a woman admires a humble man. Keep your nose leveled to the floor.
- It has been a long, long time since I have been surrounded by so many butterflies. There are thousands of them. They appear at the mere thought of you.
This week has been somewhat of a struggle. The smallest, close to insignificant things were affecting me in great and negative ways. The sad part is that I currently have so much to look forward to. My ridiculous attitude is my fault, no one else’s.
I discovered that all I had to do was dance. I danced to some new Justin Timberlake jams and Olly Murs. I felt better afterwards and, as weird as this sounds, my smiling spirit returned.
I am glad to say I have overcome the hurdle that was placed upon me. I have to say, today was the most difficult day of all. I am okay now.
Before I log off, here are other current thoughts:
- Actions speak louder than words but sometimes words turn out to be the loudest and most hurtful.
- Heartbreak paves the way for a new beginning with lessons learned.
- There are people who love you for who you are. Listen to them and always be in their company. They are giving you great love.
I had planned to move to San Antonio after I graduated from high school. That didn’t work out, but I’m okay with how my life has turned out.
If I hadn’t stayed in my hometown, I would’ve had a very, very different life path. I thank God for what He has provided me, especially the great opportunities He has laid before me.
Some people have judged me harshly for staying in Laredo. I used to care what people thought but not anymore.
I have traveled some but not a lot. I have visited family in San Antonio, Dallas and Houston, but I have not stayed there for more than a week or two. I have not traveled the world, at least not yet.
But I have traveled to a very special place: the heart. I have met so many people through my jobs and community service, touching them in some small way and leaving my footprint on their hearts. I know I have because they have showed their love for me. I hope they know I love them.
The life I am leading is one that I am very proud of. I am impacting lives and being remembered in my community. I am giving back.
As for moving, I know I will some day. I think when I get married, whenever that is. For now, God wants me to be home.
When people turn to fictional characters, it’s often because they want an escape. The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives; they save us, if only for a little while. But when we really give in, become invested, let ourselves be vulnerable, something changes. We begin to feel that we know them. It’s no longer just an escape, but part of us, something that makes us who we are.
These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome. That people can love each other forever. That life can be an adventure. That magic can be real. And even if these miracles have never happened to us, we begin to go through life believing that, someday, they could.
If anybody ever tells me that storytelling isn’t important anymore, I’ll show them this post.

How so much has changed in so little time. That’s what you call life. There have been some bumps along the way, but I’m still enjoying every moment.
I lost my cool for about a day. I’m good now. I’m happy to say I’m back to being the old me.
Like I have said many times before, I’m going to try to write more. I need to get off my lazy ass and do something. Not that I am being lazy all day. I practically have three jobs - and I am enjoying every moment.
Hopefully I will be on Tumblr more.
I have yet to finish this. I don’t know where I want to go with it, but I do know that it is not finished. I feel I have more to write, I just can’t find the words. Here is what I have so far, a little insight of what is currently going on in my life.
A day after I wrote this, we danced.
The first hour of the day was close to ending when I left your side. The world became incredibly silent. I almost didn’t know what to do or where to go. All I was thinking about was when I was going to be by your side again.
The next time we see each other, we are going to dance. We are going to dance and dance and dance. You are going to hold my hand and turn me, and I am going to be looking down with a small smile out of shyness, for it would have been quite some time since I had felt like a princess at a ball.
It was so nice seeing you and the stars together. It seems you are quite fond of Orion. Who wouldn’t be?
I have admired Orion ever since I learned how to spot the legends in the night sky. Please send Orion my regards, if you can.
I’m glad you weren’t hiding behind the clouds tonight. You spoke loud and clear when you answered my questions. My appreciation goes out to you, for I understand now.
You constantly shed a ray of hope, and just by looking at you, I know the world is waiting for me.
You and I, we understand each other. I know your secret and you know mine. We are forever connected, from the Realms of the Galaxy to the greens of the earth.
Your dear friend,
