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

Ending Memorial Day weekend with #1968 on CNN Original Series.

Thanks to Tom Hanks for producing and preserving the history of the country we live in

and call home.  It’s our responsibility to love, respect, and protect our home by being

better citizens.  For those who don’t, the exit doors are always open. 





 

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.





 

This is not only my dream house, but also the coolest new 72-hour Cabin in Sweden designed

to soothe stress in human beings!  Karolinska Institutet experimented on five different 

professionals and saw a 70% decrease in stress level.  These cabins are now open as holiday

retreats to the general public.  Get more information by visiting www.visitsweden.com

 




 

Anxiety is an emotion we experience when we believe we are vulnerable

to some sort of threat in the future.  These thoughts are created due to experiences

from the past that we are now projecting onto our future.  Investigating our thoughts and

bringing ourself to the awareness that they cannot harm us cure anxiety.

"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 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.

Being spiritual rather than religious, I personally don't find the need to follow

any traditions of a religion to connect with God.  I can find God in the giant waves

of the ocean, the wet rain drops against my skin, the strangers I meet while traveling, the

tall trees that grow from tiny seeds, the process of child birth, the unbeatable talent 

of an actor, the desire to change lives one human at a time....


How do you connect with God?  What does religion mean to you?  

  




 

Remembering my trip to the beautiful city of Manchester, UK during the tragic incident

that recently occurred at a concert there.  It's true.. "Most of the trouble in the world is

caused by people wanting to be important." -Eliot.  I think that the horrific acts by the

mentally unstable take place when they find themselves lost in life and would lean on anything

that fills their emptiness.  This is why the uneducated who's ultimate goal is to gain power targets the

vulnerable by brainwashing them with an emotional tool, the religion, which they misinterpret and use only for

manipulation purposes.  This scenario can be applied at a smaller scale as well.  For instance, when a child is

lonely, he or she grows up craving attention from peers and is lead to the wrong path; when an insecure

mother uses her title of being a mother to manipulate her son to keep him from living his life out of fear 

of being abandoned; or when a sales person manipulates clients to sell just to meet his or her

monetary needs in order to spend on things that can be used to impress others.  The best way to

eliminate this issue is to educate ourselves to be emotionally strong and keeping ourselves

busy with the positive things in life that better our mind, body, soul,

career, relationship with self and others, etc.

What is Confidence?

Building confidence at a young age helps form our personalities for the future.  Without confidence

or low self-esteem people generally see the world as a hostile place and themselves as its victim.  

As a result, they feel reluctant to express and assert themselves, miss out on experiences and

opportunities, and feel helpless about changing things.  Low self-esteem can be deeply rooted,

with origins in traumatic childhood experiences, says Psychology Today.  To me personally,

the best way to build confidence is to work inside out.  Start with taking good care of your health.  

Second, focus on your strengths and believe in yourself.  Third, travel to new places and meet new 

people - learn from them - you met them for a reason!  Fourth, do not compare yourself to others.

You should only compare yourself to the person you were yesterday.  

Lastly, treat others right and always do the right thing!  

 




 

...or what you hear about a guy!

Have you ever been caught in the middle of rumors spread about you and you had no idea

why someone would do that.. especially if they seemed to really like you before?  Well, this quote

explains exactly why.  Unfortunately, sometimes we are not able to have full control over our

emotions such as jealousy.  According to Psychology Today, jealousy is a complex emotion that

encompasses feelings ranging from fear of abandonment to rage and humiliation.  It strikes both

men and women and is most typically aroused when a person perceives a threat to a

valued relationship from a third party.







 

Pantone's Color of the Year 2017 is Greenery!  

I'm in LOVE with this picture.  It so beautifully interprets my vision of thinking big 

and letting go of those barriers in our minds that stop us from making the

most of our short life.  Outlive!
