Random Ramblings

January is about to come to a close and what a month it has been. 
I have really enjoyed myself this month.   I was just talking to a friend about how light I have been feeling in recent days.  I am very touched by the outpouring that has come since my last blog entry. I was encouraged to confront these feelings and truths many a time but I guess somethings cannot be rushed. i hope to make even more progress on this front in the upcoming weeks.  

I have come to a couple of realizations:

1. I do not enjoy puzzles. 
I bought a puzzle at the beginning of the year because I thought I needed a hobby that did not include a TV remote, but I found the puzzle experience to be tense instead of relaxing. It's out!
2. I am in control of my own life and decisions(no more excuses!)
3. True friends love YOU for YOU in spite of your quirks!
4. Positivity is contagious
(i get daily affirmations sent to my phone reminding me during the day that I am healthy and Happy, I manage my money well and I am positive--Fake it 'til you make it, right?!)
5. Your health and mental well being is THE most important thing. 
Please go see the doctor if something does not feel right. I worried for literally years about something that was non-existent. Don't waste another day!
6. Life gets better! 

In case you are wondering what happened to the January resolutions check back on February 1st for a recap!

I have to share this video with you all. Watch it and let me know if you understands what happens in the commercial.  

This commercial comes on every 9 minutes during my workout(between songs)and it was not until the 50th time that I get what happens.  Did you get it on the first take?  They end up with the same apartment they started with( shout out to all my past roommies).  It was an A HA! moments for me...I miss Oprah! 

 Also, I would like to Congratulate Demian Bichir for his nomination in the Oscar category of Actor in a Leading Role
  • Demián Bichir in "A Better Life"
  • George Clooney in "The Descendants"
  • Jean Dujardin in "The Artist"
  • Gary Oldman in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"
  • Brad Pitt in "Moneyball"
He has some heavy competition, but I could not be prouder of his nomination.  I will be watching and rooting for him on February 26th. Here is the movie preview(it is available  at  your local library or red box):

Why does this video remind me of Pickles?


  1. Awwww! My computer doesn't have speakers. I will have to check these out again another day. I'm proud of your January! And you've inspired me to go to the doctor for an annual check up! :-)

  2. Yolanda- thank you for your constant support. I appreciate it.
