Passion brings excitement and happiness. Who doesn’t love a man/woman whose passionate about them. When you’re passionate about something or someone you’ll do everything in your power to ensure that you do right by it always. You pay keen attention, you learn from the mistakes and choices made. When you’re truly passionate you live out loud. It’s not just living in the moment it’s the excitement that you look forward to. When you’re passionate about your job, you will never work a day in your life. True passion gives joy, meaning to your existence. Relationships filled with passion last longer than others, all you’re concerned about is maintaining that intimate connection you have with your person. Always be passionate, find what makes you tick, live out loud and just be authentically you. Are you passionate?
Under my Almond Tree
Sometimes the only thing you can do is sit still. I often just find myself sitting on a chair under the big almond tree in the back yard. I haven’t been out here in awhile. I created this corner so that whenever I feel lonely, trapped and or uncertain of my next move I’d just sit under the tree and some how a solution would find its way into my thoughts.
Nature does that for me. It soothes and calms my nerves. I’m not one to easily give up but lately I feel that it doesn’t matter what you do something will not be okay for some people. I need to just relax take things as they come, breathe and move on.
I am not perfect, I make tons of mistakes but in making my mistakes I truly see them as experiences. Everyday I am reminded that people are people. That phrase can be interpreted in so many ways. People are people and it doesn’t matter who you are, social status, sex, orientation etc.
Today was hectic, I still managed to get much work done. Thankfully I was alone in the office. Again being alone helps, I can hear my thoughts and I can focus more, they’re limited distractions.
So my almond tree corner in my back yard. I poured a glass of 🍷 and this is what true peace is. Being still and being one with nature. The problems will sort themselves out.
Here we go Again…
It wasn’t easy at first. Things were going great I had my plan and I was just taking things one day at a time. Shit happens and then you find yourself in limbo trying to decide do I take out this loan or do I cancel the subscription instead.
I don’t like starting something and not being able to complete it. I started out so good learning Spanish and French and then I just lost track of what was happening and completely stopped doing lessons. I no longer have the paid versions. The apps are still on my phone in the event I’m ever tempted to try and do a refresher.
It’s a new year, we’re almost in the month of March. So far so good, I’ve had several disappointments however I am not deterred. I am using these nos to make something of myself and situation. Hearing No can be very daunting.
It’s never easy I am in the middle of completing this degree and still find myself browsing the internet trying to find another course to complete. I must be crazy cause I did tell myself I am tired of the classroom. I just feel that the more information I have the more I will be able to help and serve.
I don’t know how I got here but I want to learn How to use Python. Yeah, this is a total stretch from Business Management. I am however excited to see what I can learn from it. Udemy currently has sales.
Be motivated, get up and get the work done.
Get out of your Comfort Zone
Mandatory Work from Home is over and we are all back at work. That’s just one of the many things that has been happening since I last touch base with you guys.
I also have some good news that I would like to share. I am back at school. I haven’t been back in the classroom since I completed my first degree some 12 years ago. It’s fully online and has a flexible arrangement that caters to busy work moms like myself. I’ve complted one class since module 1 started. They’re six (6) modules. The class sessions have been engaging and I am learning so much that will help me with my work.
It has been almost two (2) years since I’ve been home. This mandate of going back to the office will have me doing a complete mind change and adjustment. The morning traffic, arranging activities for my son and everything else. Personally I feel I get much more work done when I am home and I am given a more flexi work arrangement.
Covid-19 is still around everyday there is a new update from the CDC. We still have to be very careful because a cure has not yet been found. Are you guys seeing what’s happening in the world right now, the war between Russia and UkraineRussia Ukraine Updates. I have been reading the blogs, watching the tweets and seeing the news and its horrifying. My heart goes out to all those who are affected by it.
In life you will have time when your comfort zone is disrupted however, it is for us to regroup and refocus. Change is not always a bad thing. Figure out what works and make things happen for you. Take charge of the situation if you can, instead of sitting and complaining make something of it. I may have to readjust my work schedule but I am looking on the bright side – I can focus on keeping a more active life. Going back to work full time allows me create new opportunies. Keeping a positive mindset and eventually positive outcomes will happen.
Have you life ever been disrupted because of a situation? How did you handle it?

Silence isn’t always golden. This is a phrase I shared in 2011 on my Facebook page.
Silence- complete absence of sound (noun) google definition.
I was never one who always spoke up for myself for failure to get on someone’s bad side. All this changed after I’ve realized Silence isn’t always golden. Speaking up allows the other person to know how you’re feeling, whether you’re in agreement or not. It’s important to share your feelings without fear of the outcome.
I’ve been reading books, listening to podcasts talking to people who are very unapologetic about who they are and what they bring to the table. If you’re at a job and you have all the ideas that would make a process work and you don’t say anything, that is to your detriment. How many times have you missed an opportunity to share ideas and even get ahead in life? What has your silence done for you?
After reading the book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F$@k – Mark Manson it has further cemented me to speak up or focus more directly on what makes me happy. Putting yourself first allows you to strive, to grow and achieve things that you’ve always wanted to achieve.
Whatever you do or say always focus on the bottom line YOU. Ensure that all your encounters leaves you satisfied with your response to any situation. It doesn’t happen over night it takes practice and drive. Never miss another opportunity to shine because you remained silent.
Silence isn’t always golden.

Update: Covid Experience
So you guys know that I’ve been free of the Covid-19 virus for two years but caught it a week or so ago.
I must say that outside of the positive test I wouldn’t know that I was actually carrying this virus. I woke up feeling awful, that’s typical when I have bad sinus days. The cough was not even an indicator, with change of climate especially around winter I would have days when I just had a cough.
Thankfully I had reasons to take a Covid-19 test I got tested and was able to quarantine. I did so per the CDCs instructions. At the end of the period I did a home test which was negative. I further did a PCR molecular test and that also showed I was negative.
I am thankful for my family who was able to provide support during this time, running errands and or being their on video calls to keep me company. I am also grateful that I did not experience any major problems while being positive and I lived to tell the tale.
Since everything I’ve been double masking to to be extra careful. It would’ve been nicer to not get the virus after being vaccinated, but sh*t happens.
I hope that you all are keeping safe.
