Golden Age

When I begin to read this prompt I thought it would be a piece of cake. Well I was wrong because it was hard to decide.

My childhood wasn’t as fun as others. In school, I was bullied by other kids and I was afraid of everything. I’m not kidding.

Then as a teenager my life begins to change a little bit. I have dreams I want to accomplish, meet new friends, and be more confident in myself. Of course this last one I’m still working on it.

As an adult I’ve conquer over the years, “some of my fears”. I’m happy to have a wonderful family and I feel I’m getting smarter over the years or maybe is wisdom that comes with old age.

So back to the question I’ll choose to be an adult with the body of a teenager and the heart of a child.

If you had to live forever as either a child, an adolescent, or an adult, which would you choose — and why?

Making some changes…

I just started blogging 101 and one of the assignments was if we didn’t like our title or the tagline to change it. One of the students just mentions to me that my title didn’t do any justice to my blog. She is right, for a long time I’m trying to figure out how to re-name my blog. For the past week, I have been thinking and brainstorming ideas for a new name. Finally, I decided to create a title with just a few words that have a meaning in my life and also switch the tagline with the same purpose.

From the previous name “My Dreams, my Wish, and my Gratitude…” I went with a simple name “Life…Love…Tears…Purpose…” just four words with a thoughtful meaning to me.

I hope all my followers understand why I modify the title. I will like to hear what you think. I will always be grateful for any feedback.

To my fellow student thank you for being honest and for the suggestion to look more on my page About Me for inspiration.

Never too old…

The other day, I was talking to a friend of mine about how I’m trying to accomplish another of my dreams. Then all of a sudden, this neighbor who just barely knows me just said, “I was too old to reach my dreams and if by 50 a person don’t complete their dreams, then it wasn’t meant to be”. Also he mentioned, “Dreams are for the young and future generation”. I was in shock and disappointed, I just turn 54. My neighbor maybe was in his 60.

When I started with my list of dreams and I was actually 13. Some of those dreams from my list have already come true. Like being married (31 years), have a wonderful family, a nice house, a car, a job that I loved; I have traveled and went to places that I never thought of being there. So, yes I have achieved some of them. I feel amazing, bless, and fantastic and to that guy with all the respect you deserve, I want to say,” Never is too old, to achieve your dreams.” So, what is wrong with that?

I’ve been working on finishing my book (my main dream) and I’ve a journal with more ideas and topics to start a few more. I can do this. I’m not done, I’m just starting. I want to do more traveling, have a new house with a beautiful garden, and I want to watch my kids and grandkids been successful. No wrong there.

What a shame that we have a few people who think that after a certain age, there is nothing else in life for them. What happen in their life that they become to be like that? Some people like to shatter other people’s dreams that definitely make me mad.

If our dreams don’t come true it’s not that we didn’t deserve it and it’s no one’s fault. Maybe we didn’t challenge ourselves enough or it wasn’t the right time. However, no one should be so negative and grumpy to say that is not worth it to have dreams.

We can have all the dreams we want and we can dream big. We need to believe that we can achieve anything in life. Never is too late to achieve our DREAMS.

I am grateful for achieving some of my dreams and thank you for letting me dreams for more.

This movie makes me think…

Seeking-a-Friend-for-the-End-of-the-World-3

Last night, I was watching the movie “Seek a Friend for the End of the World” with Steve Carell & Kiera Knighttley and I fell in love with this movie. Despite all the bad review and be the worst movie of the year I have to say; the acting was terrific and the story between the coming apocalypses, some people just trying to live one day at a time and the ones who just freak out it makes the story just right.

This movie did touch my heart and is an eye opener. It will make you feel you need to do more with your life before it’s over. If we know when the world will end: What we sincerely want to do? How we will respond, knowing that’s there will be no chance for survival? Who will be the last ones to see? No matter how much I think about this, there are no answers and no one really knows.

This movie will be on my favorite’s movie list and I will watch it again.

Today, I’m blessed that I’m living a wonderful life, a family that I loved with all my heart and good friends.
