Family Fun 

YesterdayI threw a birthday luau for my mom. It’s amazing the feelings/memories  that come with celebrating ones birth. It’s a overwhelming feeling (in the best sense) to be surrounded by people who love and support you and I know that my mom felt the impact of that. 

~Sincerely, the blessed one

The Patriot 

  

  
(A picture taken on my snapchat)

It’s overwhelming to know that the reason we live in such an amazing and free country is because of the selfless acts of others. I wrote a little poem as a token of my admiration and apprection for those individuals who have sacrificed so much for America. Our forefathers were brave enough to stand up for our rights and our military is brave enough to continue to fight for our freedom. 

“With every explosion in the sky, a soldier has died. We are selfish, they are selfless. The true American hero does not wear spandex and a cape. Instead, they are covered in green and black war paint” ~Valerie Villar 7.5.15

Flashback Friday: 1 

It’s always nice to look back on the greatest times in life and just appreciate all the incredible people and experiences that have influenced you along the way. Every Friday, I’ll post a “flashback Friday” to give all of you an insight into who I am and some  of the things that bring me joy.  

         
 This photo was taken two months ago in Mexico. I was so fortunate to have gotten the opportunity to take a cruise to Catalina island and Mexico for spring break. This photo is so special to me because it reminds me why I want to continue to travel. Traveling to a new place can be daunting and a little odd at times, but the experiences and impression it leaves is priceless!

A journey of self discovery 

What do you want to be when you grow up? This very question has haunted me throughout my young adult life. You see, I’m twenty years old and I still have no clue as to “what I want to be.” 

I do not believe I am good at a lot of things, but the things that I am good at, I try to sharpen. 

Today I choose to “accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” 

This life is too short to be unsure and idle. I want a fulfilling life full of love, laughter, and a whole lot of amazing memories. That’s what I want to be when I grow up… I want to be happy and sure of my God given gifts  

~sincerely, the optimist
