"Everyone has a story to tell, a lesson to teach, wisdom to share....Life is a beautiful masterpiece bound together by your experiences. Open up and share your story, become an inspiration for others. You can make a difference because you matter, you were created with purpose. Live your life with intention. Go out there and make a difference by being the difference."
I started traveling with my parents when I was a kid, and the older I've gotten, the more I love it. I've been lucky enough to live and travel all over the country, as well as throughout the Caribbean and Central America. No where have I loved it as much as when I have visited family on the Gulf Coast of Florida. So when the opportunity came to move there myself, I couldn't resist. After 13 years I love it just as much now as I did those days when I was just visiting. I still love to travel, though, and Cruises are one of my favorites. On my Travel page, you will find information on Cruising, Traveling With Health Issues, and Welcome To....which are places I've visited and want to share with you. what I love most about the Travel section of my blogs is that I get to combine my love of photography with travel, and I get to share the pictures with you instead of keeping them closed up in an album of one kind or another. If you haven't been an avid traveler up to this point, I'm hoping to get you out of your comfort zone so that you can enjoy the world around you as much as I do. Sit back, relax, and read on about my many adventures and hopefully it will kickstart your inner nomad!
"The choice to have a great attitude is something nobody or no circumstance can take from you."- Zig Ziglar
Throughout my life I have had alot to overcome, but I really never was able to master any of it while having a negative attitude. One important thing I have learned over the last 5-6 years is that you have to let go of negativity that you may have coursing through your mind all day, and start feeding it with positive thoughts. If you make it your mission to consciously think positive thoughts throughout the day, before you know it, your life starts making big changes for the better. If you surround yourself with others that do the same thing, you no longer have room for all of that negative stuff. On The Bright Side is full of positive messages, stories from my life, etc....and I hope I can help others who may be starting their journey and leaving negativity behind, as well as hearing your stories. I also share the story of Abby, our new rescue puppy....how we came to the conclusion to adopt, as well as every day tips I've learned about having a new pet, training, and all the humor that goes along with it!
I was talking with a friend one day a while back, and I remember saying, "we are all different, and that is what makes it easier to learn from each other. Every person on earth, even siblings within the same family, have different experiences, different likes and dislikes, different hobbies, different base of knowledge. Because of that, we can all learn something from each other." We are all different, but there are always others going through things that we might be going through, too. In My Journey, I write about my life, things I've gone through or are currently going through, as well as things about family and health issues. No one ever has to feel like they are going through something alone. Melanie Koulouris' words....."Life is a beautiful masterpiece bound together by your experiences. Open up and share your story, become an inspiration for others" is the exact reason I decided to start this blog. Open up and share your experiences with me, so that together we can help others.
I'm a beach girl with a "story to tell, a lesson to teach, and plenty of wisdom to share" as well as lots of humor and positive messages that I love to live by.
