We make our beds and we sleep in it…

We make our beds and we sleep in it…

That obviously sounds better in Spanish but here are a few points I am trying to make:

“We” — Humans… Yes, Us humans love to complain about the circumstances in our lives all the time, heck I do it all the time too but I also stop myself and smack myself a bit from time to time because seriously all problems we usually have, we brought it upon ourselves in some away or another, unless is of problems of nature.

We forget to pay a bill and it gets sent to a collection agency and of course we blame the company “that did us wrong” it is never our fault… but don’t you think that if you would have called this company at the start of the issue and asked them for some type of payment plan, that you wouldn’t be in this situation now?

Another circumstance for example is when one is handed opportunities, money, or whatever good thing but some of us never learn how to appreciate it, how to prospect from that, how to help ourselves from the hole that we are in, we somehow just waste the money or miss out on the opportunity and dig ourselves deeper into our hole again.

We get to comfortable, somehow even in our hole we find comfort between excuse after excuse and we get afraid to dig ourselves out so we blame it all on “God”, “the universe”, the “stupid bill collector”, “bad karma” that is “following us” etc etc… I believe that if you do good the universe would give “good” back to you so sometimes it maybe good to just check ourselves and see where in our lives we are messing around with karma and doing something wrong.

There is, cause and effect for all that we do but somehow we never seem to grasp this concept… we party too much we have to pay for it the next day with a hangover, we eat too much we gain weight, we charge too many useless things on our credit cards we have to pay for it later, we leave our homework for the last minute but it is not our fault it is the teacher’s fault for giving us the assignment a month in advance and not reminding us of it… catching the point?

The thing behind the title “we make our beds and sleep in it” is in regards to all the things that we do without thinking that there would be consequences so therefore we are ‘forced” to lay on our beds and deal with it as best we can. But we often don’t, we like to blame anything and everyone and just make it worse for ourselves. We hate to admit that maybe it was our fault, we forgot the homework, maybe it was our fault we bought too many unnecessary things with credit card money, maybe it was that my friend didn’t let me borrow enough money to pay my ticket etc…. The point is we love to complain and complain that we have “bad luck” and “bad karma” when in reality most of the things that happen to us we bring upon ourselves. But one thing is certain, we don’t have to stay in our “hole” or dig ourselves dipper which is why is important to look for help and inspiration wherever we may find it. Is important to pick ourselves up, face our issues, move on, hopefully learn, and try to become a better person from that experience.

Example: someone near me always has a messy car, so one time me and a few others decided to do something nice and clean this person’s car in hope that this will help her get a fresh start and that she wouldn’t be frustrated anymore. She of course appreciated and was super thankful at the moment but in the matter of weeks her car went back to messy… so you see sometimes even when we help or give people the opportunity to dig themselves out of the hole they are in, they are just too “comfortable” and loose their sense of sight and worth so much that they much rather stay “in the safety” of their hole.

Those are my few cents on complains faults, karmas, lucks, the universe or whatever you wish to call it. Just some food for thought as they say!

Hope this post doesn’t bring anyone down but that it makes you think and reflect on those things you do and the cause and effects these things have.

*Also I want you to know that We ALL are capable of “saving” ourselves, if we look to find balance we will find it, and life will start to look brighter, better, and the hole will start to disappear little by little.

Traveling Notes

If there is something I do love to achieve with this blog is to inspire anyone to travel! Traveling by far has given me the best experiences I have ever imagine, it has boost my confidence, given me energy to see and do more, in general it has been the best thing that I have ever done. People always say that ‘traveling is not cheap’ when in fact traveling can be done quite cheap if you travel smart. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”- Author Unknown. I wholeheartedly believe that traveling does in fact make you richer, there is not enough LV, Christians Loubitons, or Chanel that will amount to what I have gained from traveling… I do enjoy luxury but at this moment in my life owning those things don’t matter so much to me therefore I prefer to make myself richer and happier The Traveling Way!

Dani’s Traveling Notes:

  • Please travel!
  • When ever there is an opportunity to travel, take it!
  • Be nice to everyone you meet you never know who could invite you on the next best trip of your life.  (Or just be nice because we are all on the same boat no need to be a troll with anyone for no reason)
  • Use your resources, perhaps your Dad/Mom/Friend of a friend has a friend down in Australia…Why not contacted them see if they will let you stay there for a few days & voilà you get to experience Australia!
  • Use the internet! The internet has so much information that I know is hard to focus on one thing when there is a million out there but seriously just look and you will find ways.
  • Use Couchsurfing & HostelWorld for accommodations on a budget! I also got pretty good traveling packages via European Destinations for two of my vacas!
  • Save, learn to save money even if is not a lot always try to put something away for a rainy day… you know after a year of saving $100 every month it will add up to $1200, that may not be a lot too some people but $1200 will sure get you a pretty decent vacation if you look for the good deals.
  • Buy flights on Tuesday mornings, just do it! It totally works!
  • Plan ahead but not so ahead that you may have too much time for doubts & fear to creep up on you.
  • Eat like the locals! When you eat at touristy places you will pay more for your dish, so ask around when you reach this new destination.
  • Don’t stay just in your circle of friends meet other people when you travel- again meeting people can come in very handy, could be the key to your next destination!
  • Embrace the culture of the place you are in, if you go to India and all you want to eat is McDonald’s then what is really the point of been there in the first place?
  • If you are in college go study abroad, I have never heard anyone say a single bad thing about studying abroad.
  • Envision yourself once you are back home from your trip a few years down the road… Would you be patting yourself on the back for the courage you had back then or would you be lamenting that you let the years go by and still haven’t visit that Temple you have been dying to see in person? But hey if you haven’t NOW is a great time so GO!
  • Don’t assume that traveling means getting on a plane, there are places you know nothing about only a car ride away so take those trips too, they are important!
  • Don’t worry so much about all the details of your trip just get on the plane and let the adventures begin!

Wow I could literally go on and on with more of this travel tips but I don’t want to bore anyone so there it is a few notes on traveling!

Life can be just like Riding a Bike

“The only truth there may be certainty in is that life is always going to be like riding bike. At first we are full of fear, doubts, and excitement but once the feet touch the pedal the going gets going & all we do is push forward. Yes we may fail or forget to pedal sometimes but is nothing more than getting back on that bike and doing just what we have always been doing pushing forward.” #sopedalmyfriend

Don’t Let Anyone discourage you…

Yesterday I woke up in a great mood, made myself delicious breakfast and then decided that it was about time for me to write another post but before I started writing by some stupidity I clicked on a video and I felt completely discourage after hearing the video about writing because in the video the girl goes on and on about how much she dislike “personal blogs” specially if they are from a “nobody/not well know” person. But you know what today I was like F-that I enjoy writing, I write this blog for the pure enjoyment of writing, if someone wants to come along to read it is great! And of course I hope people read it and comment etc… but I am not going to stop writing just because I am not consider a “well known” person, I am still a human being and in my book that counts for a lot so that next time you hear or read something that discourages you from something you enjoy DO NOT listen. You matter, I matter, everyone matters so do what you love and send Flower Bombs to anyone who wants to make you fall off your Unicorn!

inspire someone Ain't no Stopping1Little Inspo pic… A Peace Diner I made… Me-last night…& Breakfast from yesterday-YUM!

So instead of pulling each other down let’s inspire each other, to do more, to be more, to be brave, to be the best that we can be! 🙂
