True crime

I have always loved mysterious and true crime stories. From learning to have a love for reading by Getting hooked on Nancy Drew to bounding with my middle sister by watching true crime stories on the telly.

It's been kinda of hidden passion of mine, only my closet family and friends know. But thanks to the podcast : "My Favorite Murder" I have found a whole group of understanding peeps. The best thing is that the group is caring and support. (But we are not a cult, so no need to call our dads)!

New year new start

Life happens and the best thoughts go out the window, but it's now 2018 so that means a new start and maybe things will be right on track.

Start the year off sick as a dog but in a way that is good because it means things can only go up from this point!

I had

A friend recently ask me why Carrie Fisher's death hit me harder then other celebrities. The answer is because she was on of my hero's and I have also gotten to meet her in person.

She showed me that it was ok to be different and having a mental illness was something to be considered normal instead of a curse. In her role as Princess Leia she showed that sometimes you need to be kickass and rescue yourselves while it's ok to be a princess too.

She may have not made the best life choices, but she owned up to them and was trying to make the best of life.

While the new trailer for the last Jedi has gotten me excited for the movie, it's still going to be hard to see Carrie on screen. But I am also thankful that we can see her on the big screen one last time.

It's going to be a long wait until December!

Totally loving the cooler fall weather and the fun that has already been had with some of the Cali crew and more fun is waiting to be had :).

October is going to be an super fun month.

What a month

It's been a crazy time, with my sister giving birth to her first daughter. A hurricane hitting us and losing power for 5 days. The hurricane also messing up plans of another FL SW reunion. But thankfully we all made it through the storm safe and sound.

The hardest thing about this is the fact that froggy and I have been apart for so long, I think 3 weeks is my max. While I been having fun with east coast family, I am so excited to be heading back to the west coast!

Also so thankful that the beach condo is still standing and I can enjoy some beach time.

Sad and excited for I am looking forward to my trip to the east coast but I am sad about the fact I am leaving Froggy for a month, it's going to be the longest we have been apart since saying I do.

I am excited for the fact that I am going to get to see the east coast family and friends and being there for the birth of my sis is baby. But I am sad about the fact I will be missing so much goings ons on the west coast.

But it's going to fun being on the east coast again and going to the lake and Beach will do my soul some good!

A friend said it best

What have we become? Changing history to appease a few? A society focused on always blaming someone or something else for their status instead of being the change. The old saying 'the past is the past' has new meaning: ' the past hurts me and people like me collectively so we are going to force them/the man/you to change it so we can feel better about life and then I'm going back to my couch to see what else needs changing.' Does changing the name of a school impact the learning ability of the students? Does removing statues and flags and eliminating facts from our nation's history, our history, seriously impact an individual's ability to succeed or make a good life? It's a paradigm shift for me. Shouldn't we all look forward, and aren't we as  individuals afforded the freedom to choose our path?

Ghandi said, "A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people."

Maybe we have lost track of unity and forgiveness. We certainly have stopped being a people who respect our history, the different opinions of our fellow humans, and the concept of love one another. It is a long road to find our way back to a place where we cry for our fallen, fight for the weak and rejoice in the collective beauty of this life and planet we share together. And what will they write about us in the history books? Will we become the society who was too selfish, too self-centered to rejoice in the beauty and diversity of this nation? Will we be remembered as the generation who destroyed and eliminated history in an effort to appease those with the loudest voices? History does not oppress a society,  it merely tells the story and bears witness of time before. Would we as living souls be ok if another person or group of people took away 10 important years of our personal existence because it made them feel a certain way?

I beg all to look at the present, move forward, and make a positive difference. Teach your children right and wrong, not right now and who cares if it's wrong, do it anyways and I will support you. Stand up for veterans who stood up for you. Properly care for our parents and grandparents, no matter what they need, which is typically just someone who cares.  Understand again that actions have consequences - good and bad. And start over in your own understanding that people are inherently good. Search for it everyday. Care enough. Give what you can, and give back in kindness received times 10. Be grateful, not hateful. This is not intended as a political post, but intended as only my opinion on the state of our existence as we live it.
