So after reaching my first 100 followers (which I am ecstatic about) I thought I would give a little shout out to those of you who made this goal a possibility!
With that being said, I plan on show casing one of my first followers, Serial Princess (aka Ayumi).
Serial Princess is a Blogger who writes about the hottest tech, fiercest sports, sleekest rides, and freshest recipes?
Yes, I said recipes. And damn, they are super scrumptious (looking)! Serial Princess brings a tomboy’s perspective on today’s cultural icons, products, and news. Princess balances her in-depth reviews with detail recipe instructions as well!
You know that feeling you get, the one when you feel as you have already been to a place. Deja vu? When I arrived at Wild Basin, part of Rocky National Park, I felt like I had entered into one of Tolkien’s classic fantasy tales (Lord of The Rings). I was surrounded by roar of mighty rushing rapids, and enclosed by gigantic pines and aspen trees.
Ever turn led to a new place if splendor. It makes you wonder how all if this was created, how this place of beauty could just “happen” by chance. As for me, I know that the all powerful, mighty God has his hand in this magnificent place!
The Goal can be hard, arduous, difficult and strenuous at times!
Let’s kick start our Summer goals off with a bang! We all have our own dreams and aspirations for the few months when the sun is in full force. Yet we let opportunities slip through the cracks. Laziness settles in, and the half-to’s become the Coxswain of our daily lives. The cell phones (sorry I ment smart phones) start chiming, emails begin to pile up, and family members plan our lives away.
God’s beauty! The reward of hard work!
We miss out on a lot of great moments in life because we don’t plan for it and learn to say no. Now I’m certian that when we were all kids we got the same speech about the saying no. I look at it differently, learning to say no in a positive way can benefit your life in a completely new way. Set aside some personal time to do what is most important to you, whatever that may be do it! And make sure to not let anyone take that time from you. Say no to the phone, email, and even family members. But do so by letting them work with your schedule, not the other way around.
Sometimes one must search endlessly, in the darkest corners to find the treasure!
I read ( and listened to a audio tape) many years ago that helped me change the way I spent my time. How I scheduled the have to’s, and personal time. The book was by Stephen R. Covey, the famous businessman that introduced the world to the 7 habits of highly effective people, and was titled “Focus: Achieving Your Highest Priorities”. Still to this day I struggle with this, but it is an amazing book.
Success is that overwhelming felling after struggling to complete a difficult task!
Back to Summer goals, which is the discussion of this post (and photos of achieving my first small step). I have come to realize that I thoroughly enjoy life, the whole great adventure part. Meeting new people, exploring the world, and sharing those special moments with people. I will be continuing to explore what I have in my backyard, Colorado that is! I plan on summiting more peaks! I plan on honing my photography and hopefully getting some prints made! And most importantly sharing these moments with people, and making unforgettable memories that will last a life-time!
Don’t let life happen! Make it happen for you, otherwise you’ll miss moments such as this!
God bless our Mothers! They show us love in thousands (more so infinite ) of ways. From birth they carry us for the next 2o some years of our lives. Teaching us, encouraging us, and comforting us, without mothers the world would be a much mor dark and dreary place.
Lovely meringue cookies, made with love and a heavenly touch! So light and airy, eating only one would not suffice. My mom carefully created these beauties for such a spectacular day. She finds joy in creating wonderful treats for her family.
Mother and Son, on a beautiful Mother’s Day.
Mothers are the core to the family, they help teach us the most important things in life, how to be loving and caring people. How to forgive and forget, and most importantly build us into mature men and women.
