Hashtag Women Crush Everyday

These two girls to the right and left of me are creating a Kelly best friend sandwich. Kelsea and Lauren are the two girls I spend the most time with and have seen me at every happy, sad, sassy (you name it) emotion over the past year and a half. All three of our boys are in the band Trophy Wives together so together we rely on each other for emotional support when they are gone and we need someone.

They both have their own specialty and personal projects going on- Kelsea is an amazing baker and Lauren is killer photographer and watching them be so passionate about each skill is so inspiring to me to continue to do what I love to do.

This year the band will be traveling a lot and I am so glad to have these two ladies by my side to ride this crazy life ride together with.

Love you ladies.

I still always look up to you

Loosing someone close to you is the worst thing to happen to a person. Having a hole in your heart and soul that is not able to be filled is such a terrible feeling.

Learning to accept the fact you won’t be able to see the person again at Sunday dinner is something that seems almost unbelievable.

Be kind and gentle to everyone you know. Time goes to quickly to not be present and take advantage of each moment spent with whomever.

SNOWED IN

I’m from a tropical country in South America, so I would say by nature I am programmed to abhor the snow and cold weather.

I have spent countless hours complaining about the weather. And I don’t know, it just kind of becomes something to talk about. This year, however, I’ve made it a point to be real with myself and with others and cut-the-crap. I’ve been thinking about what a waste of time it is to complain about something as uncontrollable as the weather.

The other night it started to snow and my natural reaction would be to get annoyed and complain about how cold it is and how I’ll have to clean off my car; two very true things. Instead, I decided to bundle up and go outside.

I realized that when it snows at night it’s incredibly peaceful. I realized that the sky gets a glowy-gray hue. I realized how satisfying it is to be the first to leave a footprint in the snow. I realized that this is where I live and I should start enjoying it – as it will snow whether I want it or not.

We truly forget how fragile and short life is. We lose ourselves and forget how amazing the processes of physics and science happening around us are. I believe it’s important to ignite that child-like curiosity in order to give ourselves a sense of wonder and adventure.

To being more adventurous,

A New Year

I have been waiting for this new year for a little but now. The feeling of a new fresh start is so inspiring and makes me think hard about what I want to make of the year. Now that we are a few weeks in I’m finding what I want to focus on and how I want to go about achieving my goals. I want to make this year awesome and filled with success and happiness.

Last year I learned a lot about myself personally. Finding out things I didn’t like or really did like about myself and how to accept them and love them both. I made amazing friends and continued to love my boyfriend. It was a great year for me.

Now this year I want to focus on my life professionally. Really honing in on my career and business projects. Keeping organized while doing multiple tasks can prove to be difficult as I learned last year and with the planning I am hoping that everything runs as planned. But if not- oh well! Learning to roll with the punches is something I’m finding to be very helpful.

What is your goal for 2015? Are you focusing on anything specific?
