A Child Like Mentality 

  Hi to all of my readers old and new. Speaking of new, I would like to welcome those who have recently joined the team. I’m so glad that you have chose to stay here and read my blogs. I can only hope that you will find a special interest in all of this.As I contemplated on what to write next, a great idea developed. As many of you know that I have been here and there, and have not been on here as much as I like. The last week have been extremely busy and full of fun. Currently, Billy’s nieces nephews have been visiting and consumed much of my time writing. Though they are some of the cutest little people I know, they have helped me see a lot of different ideas. The more the children interacted with me the more I thought back to hundreds of other children I have known. I came to the conclusion that many today adults tend to lose their child like joy and simplistic way of life views and situations. For myself, I can say that I have always clung to the simple ways of a child’s mentally. Let me clarify, what I mean by saying a child mentality such as the simple things that bring me joy and happiness. Now, I could have easily lost my way in the midst of my challenging past and could have became a mundane average adult. A person who is extremely serious and let others influence my life in a negative way. Instead, I always chose to be grateful, joyful, and creative. Allow me to give some examples. When I was young and had literally nothing, I was happy that I had a river and lakes in my town that I could play and swim in. Before I came to the USA, I did not let angry teenagers effect my simple ways of living nor did I allow them to take away my fun that I had at a boarding school. When family and home life became difficult and challenging, I was grateful for my friends and things as simple as a bed to sleep on at night. The list just goes on and on. The truth is that some of us lose sight of our beginning foundations. We forget that not everything has to be a perfection. We get super worked up about something that is out of our control. Some say that a child before a legal adult age can only enjoy things that are simple and fun without responsibilities. I disagree with those type of thinking. The truth is that, if you are truly happy and free, you should not let anything tie down in a way that a person is forced to be those ways. Yes, we all have responsibilities, but it does not mean that responsibilities determine our values or outcome. Next time before you put on that law-school suit or mundane personality, think about how it will wear you out. Think about yourself, it does not matter what anyone else think of you. Loosen up and enjoy life for what it is. You only have so much time to be you. Make it a child like mind-set.

  Thank you for reading. You are a true friend. Until next time, I hope you will have a blast day and do not forget to strip down those crusty old shell that made you what you are today. Seriously, I hope you will have a fantastic day! Go out and crush it.

In To The Out

  Before I start, I would like to give a huge thanks to all of my new followers. You guys are extremely supportive of my blog. Writing blogs is one of my favorite hobbies and passions. I really appreciate all of you.  Some of you might have been wondering where on earth I have gone. It has been a busy week. Not to worry, I have a story to share with you guys. As many of you may or may not know, but I love nature. For the past few nights, my fiancee Billy and I have been enjoying our evenings outside. It has been absolutely amazing! The weather in the day time has been a bit warm. By the time evening comes, everything is cooled down. Not only the temperature decreases, all of the night creatures come out to play. Billy and I love going outside before the sun sets completely, especially when the birds are feeding. As we pull out our folding chairs and just sit back enjoying each other’s company while listening to birds. Nature has a way of making me feel super relaxed. Tonight, we did not get outside until after dark, it was wonderful nevertheless. As usual, Billy would brew himself a nice cup of coffee and puts some work as I pull out my braille note machine to write up blogs. Since I don’t usually drink coffee, I got myself a bottle of cold water and got started on this blog. Everything from the wind blown leafs to the chirping crickets to the swishing sounds of the brushes in the distance calms me and allows me to focus on my writing. As I scrambled my head for anything to write, I reached over and took a coconut butter cracker with sugar sprinkles on top which we got earlier today from the grocery store. Though many ideas for my future book came to my mind, I decided to share and update you guys as my awesome readers of where I have been.

  Even though I don’t have any other interesting things to share tonight like scary stories or romance, I can promise that I have something amazing in stored for you guys. For now, I am going to catch up on some sleep and will return tomorrow for more content! Again, I am really grateful for all of my readers out there.

  Much love and happy reading

Our Heartbeat

  This is my first poem on here. This is dedicated to my beloved Fiancé! I love you so much!
  With every breath I take,

  You are my resting place,

  Everyday your hands is what I shall forever take,

  When I am confused or have any doubt,

  I know that I can always look up into your perfectly loving face.

  Every breath I take,

  All the things they say,

  Our love is too fake,

  Yet we continue to prove them wrong everyday.

  The only thing that matters in the world is our story,

  If they dare to look closer,

  They can and will witness our memory,

  Oh, all the places you show me,

  I can’t help but notice all of the days ahead that’s getting more clearer,

  With each kiss to every greenest field we stay,

  With my lover by my side,

  Only you can truly make me feel free,

  When I’m with you,

  The surroundings stop and stare at us,

  As you hold me tightly in your welcoming arms,

  Everything from the current of the river to the rocks that we stand on,

  Seem to be still and dare not to disturb us,

  With each kiss,

  Our hearts beating together is all I hear,

  Even the birds become more quiet and start whispering,

  And I can only know that this moment is true.

  With every big and small pebble we cast into the roaring current,

  The forest of trees seem to hold their breaths,

  Watching us from all angles of the woods,

  Before they know it,

  Our laughter fill the echoing nearby mountainside.

  When I look up,

  The sky filled of stars stares back,

  Illuminating the field where we lay,

  The view of the tall meadows to trees to the flower and grass all around,

  With every breath I take with you,

  My mind and soul becomes refreshed,

  In your arms,

  Is where I will stay.

Social Behavior

Have you ever wonder the different types of social behaviors in your friend circles? In the next paragraph, I’m going to share some of my own analysis that I’ve become aware of. One thing that I have noticed throughout my school years is that everyone has their own way, of how they can be known or popular. One of the similar action that I’ve seen between all the different parties and gatherings that I’ve attended, I have noticed that each individual claim a specific way of what they think that attracts their popularity or fans. The most common type of persuasion that I’ve seen is down grading and putting someone else’s character down to make themselves to seem more superior. I tend to see this more among the younger generation. This particular style really unsettles me the most. It does not just damage another’s personal belief of their value, but I have to wonder what the true reason that an individual feels that they have the need to do this. Is it jealousy? Could it be that they are not content with their own lives? Whatever it might be, it is never okay to embarrass or personally hurt someone’s ego. You never know where the person that you hurt are going through. They could be experiencing self worth or self doubt. Another type of confident boost, may be talking twisted lies subtly to ruin someone’s reputation or making the rest think that they are the better person. When they say something, and the crowd awkwardly laughs out loud which then boosts that person even more. At this point, the audience lose credibility in this person. At least I do. This makes me ask myself, what exactly is this person trying to hide about themselves. They are obviously trying to lure people away from themselves and dig out the most horrific thing on another person. This is one of the shallowest thing to do. Unfortunately, these people are completely blinded by it, all they want is support from the wrong type of people. The best thing to do, is stay away from that kind of negativity. I only brought up two main points, because those are the most that I have noticed in crowds and group gatherings. Now that you have read my blog, feel free to look around the next time you get together with friends, family, and coworkers. Carefully pick out those individuals and keep your distance. You will notice a more positive people if you take this advice.Facebook page
