Last Monday I went and did my first photoshoot because my friends either couldn’t or didn’t tag along. This pass Monday, I had my friend (Cesia) do it with me and my best friend (Pilar) tag along. It was a 35 minute drive from our city to where the photographer (Greg) is. On our drive there, we listened to music and shared story. Cesia was in the back perfecting her make-up. I can’t do that in a moving car.
We all met up at Vons and took Greg’s car. It was going to be about an hour and something going to Santa Monica. Pilar sat in the passenger so she can record the drive and whatever that is outside. Her and Greg talked most of the time. Pilar’s a very talkative person, and she has a loving personality so it makes it so easy for people to connect with her.
We got to LA and we were very hungry. We went to this hotdog place of Greg’s choice. At first I was unsure about it because I thought they only sold sausage by itself. Then I saw a man cutting a bread/bun in half. Ces and I got the turkey & chicken sun-dried mozarella. Pilar got the lamb. Greg got the rabbit and rattle snake. While we sat and waited for our food, we played hangman. When the food came, I took a bite into my hotdog and it was the most delicious hot dog I’ve ever had. The restaurant is called Wurstküche Restaurant.
Once we finished our food, we hopped back into the car inbound to Santa Monica. We got there and got dress. Pilar was helping us with our pose because she’s more experienced in modeling. She also carried and moved our stuff and recorded some clips for my vlog. It was fun, and exciting, and we felt as if we all got something done.
This month came off to a great start. It’s going well. I have the support of my friends. I’m getting what I have to done. I’m recording and documenting. Life is great, especially after I fell off the grid a bit towards the end of February. Remember: When you’re going through a tough time, things always gets worse before they get better.
I’ve met new friends this year. Now, it’s never my intention to meet new friends. I always talk to people I come across and that’s that; however, I realize that the best friendship comes unexpectedly. It’s amazing, and it beautiful, and it’s so beneficial because you learn about others, yet you learn about yourself. It’s a way of self-developement.
Yesterday afterschool, Ces and I did our make-up. We were getting ready to go climb trees and hike with a photographer who wanted to shoot photos of us. He never made it.
Ces and I try to catch a sunset at least once every week, if not twice. We love it. I never had a friend to go out and play make-belief with. We will pretend we’re animals, or we’re getting chased or we’re lost and make the best of it.
I never knew how wild and adventurous I was because I was always fearful and she helped open up a new door for me. I love it. Being outside and surrounded by nothing but trees, and grass and dirt is beautiful. It gives me the ultimate high to life. I would choose this high over a substance high anyday.
I don’t promise I’ll be successful in life, but I promise I’ll die trying.
By successful, I mean wealth, health, happiness, and love.
Wealth: Money isn’t my motive in life, but it’s definately close to oxygen. I never wish to be rich. It’s probably nice having everything, but I don’t care much for materials as much as I care about my happiness, experience, and relationship with others.
Health: I strive to be as healthy as I can be. Physically, mentally, and emotionally. Why? It helps boost confidence. It expands knowledge and experience. It’s like a game of truth or dare, but it’s a combination of both.
Happiness: Happiness can be anything. What do you do that makes you happy? I love learning. I love experiencing. I love taking risk. I love life and all of it’s struggle. Knowing that I’ve inspired and helped others mean the world to me. That’s what keeps me going and that’s what encourages me to take even bigger risk.
Love: Everyone loves and wants to be loved. We’re human and we want. Love is one of the most powerful emotion along with hate and desire. I love my friends and family. I love the strangers next to me. I love because we’re all human. I love everything on this planet because I am grateful. I’m grateful for earth. I’m grateful for the trees and every living creature on this planet.
I just wanted to post a video so that I at least keep up with my goal. I am still learning on how to edit and use Youtube, so bear with me please.
I’ve decided for now that I will be doing book reviews. I am currently reading Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kyosaki.
Fitness/Life video will be uploaded as soon as I get the hang of editing.
I finally got a chance to upload my first Youtube video (intro).
If you get a chance, please watch and subscribe 😀
My goal is to post every week, every other week, or once a month.
My videos will have some of my work out routine, my meals, my goals and what I’m doing to execute it, and other daily live activity.
This week is coming to an end and I must say I haven’t gotten anything done. I can’t use my feelings as an excuse and I can’t use words to justify my wasted time.
I’m afraid, I’m hurting, I’m alone and I’m letting all these emotions effect my daily decisions. I have to learn to put my emotions aside and FOCUS.
Fear is apart of being who we are. It’s a part of being human. We’re often told to be strong. If we can’t face our fear or get over it, that makes us a coward. It makes us a weakling. It shows that we are not capable of doing what we want to do or have to do because we’re too afraid to do it.We set goals and don’t accomplish it because in our mind it’s easy to do, whereas conducting our goals take effort, time, and risk. We’re afraid to take risk.
I love the idea of challenges, I love the idea of risks and dangers. However, when it comes down to it, I’m afraid. Afraid of what? I don’t know. I have yet to figure myself out.
Robert T. Kyosaki states, “It is said that the fear of public speaking is a fear greater than death for most people. According to psychiatrists, the fear of public speaking is caused by the fear of ostracism, the fear of standing out, the fear of criticism, the fear of ridicule, the fear of being an outcast. THE FEAR OF BEING DIFFERENT PREVENTS MOST PEOPLE FROM SEEKING NEW WAYS TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS.”
So how do we go about facing our fear? How do we accept it? Fear is in our brain, it’s always going to be a part of us. We can deny it, but one thing everyone has in common is we’re all afraid of something. Whether it be personal, finance, death, it can be anything.
