Favorite picture!!!  Anthony Bourdain was a huge part of my life.  Losing him is like

losing a friend who understood how awesome it is to have deep conversations

about food, family, culture, history, and ideas with strangers while traveling

alone!  He made me look a little less creepy!!  #rip

I ran into Johnathan Goldsmith at the Last Book Store in Downtown LA!




 

Why do we see so many boys these days not willing to leave their parents' nests

to build their own?  Why do they make their current family a priority over their future

family?  When we educate ourselves we understand that a relationship may be emotional,

physical, social, but a marriage is a financial commitment to preserve mutual love and respect in

order to provide a solid foundation for your offsprings that meets their needs before they step 

into the real world.  Without this awareness, emotionally weak boys lean onto their mothers

and financially weak boys lean onto excuses, games, and lies because they're not ready to

support a new family or may have other financial priorities.  Does that mean they

don't love the girl they're in a relationship with?  Absolutely not!  When 

that's the case, it's better to let time, patience, and courage

cure all wounds; not people and their two cents.

 




 

Another awesome teen workshop at Piadina, Tustin Marketplace! 

We had amazing professionals, such as, a Police Officer, Programmer, Football Player,

Accountant, Attorney, Business Owner, Doctor, Engineer, Teacher, Pilot, and more who 

graciously dedicated their time to share their experiences with teens to help

them find their career paths and design their lives early!  To hear

about the upcoming workshops, please follow Tustin Kiwanis on

Instagram or 'like' its page on Facebook.

"Less is More" couldn't be more true especially after experiencing a recent wildfire that forced

us to evacuate our home.  It's important to practice letting go and living a minimal, meaningful

lifestyle.  Letting go of useless things and unproductive people around us helps us outlive our

day-to-day life we try to make the most of.  Here's a list of things you should always 

keep in your car for each individual incase of an emergency:

1.  Wate bottles, energy bars, first aid kit

2.  Cell phone / laptop chargers, glasses if you wear them!

3.  A small bag for pjs, t-shirt, towel, toothbrush, toiletries, slippers

4.  Save all important doc in your Dropbox (copy of driver's license, passport, etc.)








 

 

I've been secretly obsessed with Elvis Presley and his life! 🤓

August is the month when people around the world celebrate him as he was the king of

rock 'n roll and a global icon.  He fell in love with Priscilla when she was only 14 and married

her several years later.  While he was at his peak, she decided to walk out of the relationship

leaving him heartbroken.  He increased his drug intake to fight depression which slowly

started to take a toll on his health and stardom.  He was never able to fully recover

and finally died at the age of 42 in 1977 in Memphis, TN.

I recently stumbled upon a thought-provoking, controversial documentary on

Netflix called What The Health!  Did you know that eggs are just as bad as smoking,

humans are designed for plant-based diets, protein originates in plants not animals,

and cow's milk is meant for calves, not humans?  Plant-based diets can reverse all

diseases!  Please check out the documentary and see what you think about it!

It takes years for some people to understand and find their purpose on this earth.  This

thought provoking quote is a great way to find the right path in life.  We can make a difference

for ourselves and others in the future by correcting our past and give meaning to our existence.
