~Birthday Update~

My Birthday was the best ever it was so spontaneous but it worked out great. I brought my birthday in at the skating ring with my favorite cousin. The morning of my B-day I went to a Day Spa and got a full body massage. The massage was so relaxing and rejuvenating for my body, especially since I have been working out regularly. After that I went to dinner with my family at a sushi restaurant, it was my first time eating sushi. It was actually good, that's why people say don't knock something until you try it. The restaurant also had a stage for karaoke and my brother and I did a song together. We sung "Promiscuous Girl" by Nelly Furtado the song was so fast I kept laughing while on stage. I sung the chorus part and added my own freestyle towards the end of it lol. I know every time I hear that song now I will never forget that day, yes it was that much fun. After dinner I cut my cake and got ready to go out with my sorority sisters. They came from out of town (two of them) and I didn't even know they were here...I was so happy and surprised. We went out to a lounge and celebrated just like old times. This was a birthday full of great memories and one I will cherish forever!

My Birthday Day!!

My birthday is this weekend and I am so excited...so excited that I didn't even plan anything lol. I usually celebrate by traveling, going out, or enjoying the festivities of a restaurant. This year I decided I wanted to do something different so I am might go to a REAL spa. It is nothing better for a girl than getting pamper for a day. Well as long as I have a great time with my family and friends that would be priceless. So I say *clears throat* "let the celebrate begin."

-If you have an ideas for me post below please.

What is stopping you?

"Success is not determined by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at them obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as hurdles, each one strengthens you for the next. And nothing can stop you."
-Dr. Ben Carson

If you have not seen this movie, I suggest you got out and rent it. This movie is just total inspiration at its finest. Dr. Ben Carson truly manifested his dreams into reality and is very successful today. Gifted Hands is a movie based on the life and struggles of Dr. Ben Carson journey of becoming a Pediatric Neurosurgeon. He literally came from nothing and blossomed into the best.

You have the same potential to be the best too, so what is stopping you? Go out there and make it happen, share your gifts with the world. Just keep your mind focused on the results and you too can win. Spring has sprung and it is time for you to blossom too!

~This Love~

I'm in love, but this here is is no ordinary love
it is more like extraordinary love,
this love is that home cooked meal love,
this love this that fresh out the shower so fresh and so clean love
this love is not like the rest, but I will protest
this love is the best,
this the type of love most people don't experience....
I told you this is no ordinary love,
more like extraordinary love
this is not the type of love were you hug and caress,
or wake up in the morning and your hair looks a mess,
this love is more like
humming birds outside your window
this love is like waves in the ocean, a constant motion
with this love I don't have to feel a touch or embrace
I don't feel fingers prancing around my face,
nor do I feel the tangible, it is more like intangible love,
it's like I know it is there
I pray it is there
I hope it is there
I dream it is there
I have faith it is there
But in the end is it there?
for I am in love with the though of being in love,
and when that love comes, I will feel complete
see this love is no ordinary love,
this love is like listening to seashells, and dreaming you are on the beach

Who said you can only make a resolution at the beginning of the year? Well you all know it's March right? Lets get in our "go-getter" mindset and start today...on this wonderful Friday evening March the 4th (or whenever you decide to read this). It is never to late to start a new beginning, let me say that again "It is never to late to start a new beginning." Today is the day you need to put an end to your procrastination and start something new. As a matter a fact I want you to make a list...that's right that is going to be your homework assignment! You need to complete this list today before you turn out the lights and go nighty night. This list should consist of things you want to accomplish this month, and if you want to take it a step further plan your goals for the year.

You know what you want and now is the time that you quit wasting valuable time and get it together. Lets call ourselves "Go-Getters" because we are going to get what we want whenever we want it. We will not fly like birds do; instead we will soar above the sky like eagles. You want to be an eagle don't you? Well you should because there are to many birds flying around (pooping on my car too lol) , not everybody can be an eagle but you can...yes you can!

~Soar high my eagles friends

p.s. I will post my list next month and update you all on my achievements. Don't be shy post a goal in the comment section!
