To end 2015 with a little bit of a bang after a crazy year of change, I got the chance to visit the Grand Canyon which was extremely breath taking and cold. It is amazing to see something so historic it doesn’t even look real, I was standing there thinking on how little I am compared to this what i like to call “a giant as hole that looks prettier then me” in all honesty it is breath taking and makes me want to travel a lot more to what else this world has to offer sometimes we really do forget to take a minute to enjoy the beauty of the world when we are sometimes always surrounded and paying attention to the negativity that goes on. Every once in a while it’s nice to forget for a second and just connect with mother nature.
This past week I was staying with my tia and tio along with my cousins in my hometown where I grew up; South Gate, CA. A lot of the times I say no often to certain things, when I know I should practice saying yes. My cousins always show me and remind me not to be afraid to explore, get out of my comfort zone and get my hands a little dirty. So why not take an adventure to what once was a busy street, and after an earthquake is now a place to roam and make memories. It was such a beautiful view, the ocean has my heart and hearing the waves crash against the rocks is my absolute favorite. I feel we sometimes take these little things for granted, the smell of the ocean and the great outdoors with good company. So here’s to us all taking more risks, saying yes, and trying to make ourselves happy with the daily negativity struggles many of us have.
