Decisions…

What do you want to do when you grow up? Where do you see yourself in 5/10 years? What do you want to eat for supper? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE? . . . They just never stop! They never leave you alone! They are ALWAYS there! One after the other….

I need you!

Yes, you! I need YOU! Don’t give up now! This poem is for anyone out there going through a tough time in life right now. Please, don’t do it! I know you’re tired! But, just focus on staying healthy, and keeping your mind fit! I know it’s exhausting! It feels like the only way out….

The good ol’ days!

I miss the days when I used to play outside everyday after school. I miss the days when I would run around my block with friends and neighbours doing crazy and stupid things. I miss the days when we’d laugh all evening until the sun set. I miss those days because I always thought we’d…

Coco!

So, I just had a “weird” experience. . . . I just went to the movie theatre here in Chile and watched a Spanish movie (w/o subtitles). . . . It might not seem like such a weird thing, but that’s the best word I could think of to describe it. It made me feel…

Oceans…

Within a year I’ve been to the North Atlantic and the South Pacific in 3 different countries! . . . From: Nova Scotia, Canada To: Glover’s Reef, Belize To: Chile And, the craziest thing is that every time I went to the ocean in those country I forgot which country I was in for a…

My Favorite Type of Tree!

. . . Behind the scene of that picture: So, yesterday I went out for a walk around the town I live (Quillota) here in Chile. And, while walking, I started taking pictures of random things around town that might inspire a post or that I might want to post on Instagram. And, the picture…

Hope For Your Future…

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future. -Robert H. Schuller . . . So, before I begin, I should start by saying that I don’t know the person who said that quote, but, when I read it, I immediately remembered one of the main reasons why I made the decision to live here,…

My Own Material

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now. . . . So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out…

A rollercoaster year!

Hold up! Wait! Before I even start to talk about this past year, I just have to say that in the beginning of this year I would have never imagined being here in Chile for New Year’s. That’s just crazy! . . . I’ll admit, this year has had it’s down/low moments, but in general,…

The Unknown… 

I’m tired of feeling stuck! I want to travel & experience new & different things! . . . I’m tired of living in this bubble of what I know about the world. I am starting to get tired of my comfort zone (I think this is a sign that I need to change something). I…

A poem/letter…

My first blog post poem!  Now, I guess I should disclaim that I didn’t technically come up with this poem on my own. I came across a post this past week where someone was sharing their feelings, and while reading it, I decided to put together some of the words to form an encouraging letter/poem….
