Travel Diary: La La Land

I just LOVE me some California! You can go anytime of year and have an amazing time. I am in love with the San Francisco Bay Area, but I have a thing for sun and palm trees. LA LA Land is the spot for just that! I have visited L.A. a few times, and each time I have a different experience. I like to sightsee when I travel. Each place I visit has something cool and different to offer.

Life Lessons according to Dr.Seuss

I’m sure we’ve all at some point during our childhood read books by Dr. Seuss. It was either Green Eggs and Ham, 1 Fish 2 Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Hop on Pop and so many other favorites. As children we didn’t really get the meaning sometimes behind those stories. To us, they were fun to read because of the funny little rhymes and the silly looking characters. But, those stories gave us perspectives on life and not being afraid to be yourself.

“My Story, My Adventure, My Journey”

20140125-053834.jpg

(I traveled from Washington DC to Washington State…by train. One of the Best Experiences of my Life)

Some are already aware, but for those who are not, I have recently relocated to beautiful Washington State! I have been wanting to move away for quite some time now. Certain situations have happened in my life in the past couple of months that pushed me to make such a MAJOR change. This was actually one of the biggest decisions I have ever made in my LIFE. I was laid off not too long ago and I sat down with myself and GOD and prayed about what to do next. It’s really amazing how everything worked out to where all things lead to me leaving home. Most people would be down in the dumps but I look at me being laid off as a blessing and an opportunity.Yes, it was a little devastating but, it was not a surprise (you guys know how government contracts work. Time for bids and only one can win). A lot of people asked me “Well, why Washington?” Well, I applied all over the world and the job market is tough. I have never been out of work until now so I can understand what so many Americans are going through. Searching and applying every single day. It’s TOUGH! So, I chose Washington State because I have family here and it’s not the norm I am use to. I’m getting older. The “fast life”, partying etc got old to me a long time ago. Not that I still don’t enjoy a good time but, ¬†I’m trying to establish a career and find where I want to settle. I’m at a different place in my life mentally and needed something a little more chill. People seem to choose where they want to live according to what they are accustomed to. That’s all find and dandy, but I wanted something……DIFFERENT. I needed a FRESH START. Just to be clear, this wasn’t a fresh start to “find myself” (I knew who I was before I left home), but a fresh start to gain new experiences, try new things, meet new people. A chance to LIVE. Being laid off is one of the best things that has happened to me in my life. GOD let it happen to give me that extra PUSH. Inside, I wasn’t content with where I was, so HE made it possible for me to change it. (Praise HIM!)

Be the Type of Person you want to Meet

20131006-013226.jpg

You know the old saying “treat others how you would like to be treated”. Of course you do. Do we all do that? Of course we don’t. When people in our lives or even strangers treat us poorly, it’s hard to be friendly and caring in return. If you find yourself in a situation where someone is not treating you with love and respect and you have done nothing wrong, please understand that what they are doing to you has nothing to do with YOU. Don’t let cruelty from others turn you into something you’re not. Don’t be spiteful or seek revenge. Instead, BE THE TYPE OF PERSON YOU WANT TO MEET. Be caring, encouraging and a joy to be around. Yes we all get mad but don’t let adversity consume you.
