It’s Not Too Late

Just watched inside Out a few days ago. if you are not familiar with the movie,it is by Pixar, so it is an animated cartoon. It is a story about the emotions of a girl named Riley as her family moves from Minnesota to San Frnacisco. It was quite good and I enjoyed that there was no real “bad guy”.

Before the main movie, there was a short film, called Lava. It is about a volcano, uku, who for years, sings a love song, hoping to have a partner to share and enjoy life. Throughout the years, the water level rises and just as the wate reaches his mouth, a new volcano,Lele, erupts but is unable to see, uku.uku tries to sing but is out of lava and sinks to the ocean. Lele then begins to sing the same love song, which stimulates the earth and lava in Uku and Uku also erupts out of the ocean, to be at the side of Lele.

I was so touched by that short little firm. Thousands of years to be waiting… I'm currently going through some struggles in my life. But I don't want to wait years for things to get better. There may not be much that I can change and frankly, change does scare me. It is far easier to do what is comfortable and to stay in relative safety instead of embracing uncertainty. I want to pursue my happiness now. I want my life to be more than what it is now. I want a life full of “lava.”

I love the design of the knuckle clasp area. I’m not really a fan of the size of the clutch, it… Continue Reading

The Pregnancy Myth

When you are a teenager with raging hormones, most of the sex education you get is geared more at abstinence rather than safer sex practices.  You can’t get pregnant or get a disease if you don’t have sex!  Yet, biologically, this is the perfect time for female bodies to reproduce.  When you get older and… Continue Reading

Mistakes are Inevitable

Mistakes happen, it’s a part of life.  The goal is to not achieve perfection, that is impossible and sets you up for failure.  Rather, what sets you apart and is your defining moment is how you deal with mistakes.  There will always be things outside of your control.  However you do have control over your… Continue Reading

Where Did My Passion Go?

The hubby and I had the rare opportunity to have a conversation.  For several minutes even!  And we both came to conclusion that there isn’t anything that really excites us anymore, nothing that gets us to leap out of bed in the mornings.  Except our kids.  I am of the opinion that we are just… Continue Reading
