Golden Sunsets & Silver Skies

*Dylan finally got to meet the ocean... and he was the happiest kid on the face of this planet.

I know what total contentment and genuine happiness feels like... and the experience is absolutely priceless. The smile on his face, that twinkle in his eyes, his energy, the excitement- it was all so contagious. I loved every second of it. The wonders of being a kid and making a discovery for the very first time. That feeling of experiencing something new and deciding that it's something that makes you happy and it's something that you really like. Incredible. What i would give to see the world in the eyes of a child once again. Dylan is a constant reminder on how the little things can be huge and how wonderful everything really is.

I was never able to take him to the beach. My schedule wouldn't permit it. There was never an opportunity, not enough time, and no mode of transportation. For some reason, i never felt like he was missing out. I knew that when the time came, it would be great no matter what. I'm glad i got to see his reaction at a time when his consciousness was already there, that it wasn't something belittled- the moment was appreciated to the fullest and became that much more grand. Looking back at the photos, the look on his face said it all.

Watching him take in every moment and actually live made my heart melt. Seeing him completely happy and having the time of his life made me happy.

He spent hours in the water and you could see him just having fun. He kept on going and going and was hesitant to stop and take breathers. He was enjoying his little adventure and i could tell he never wanted it to end. Going to bed wasn't difficult... but knowing that he got to wake up to all of it all over again made it easier and gave him something to look forward to.

He is my life and this is what i live for. =)

*I can't believe my baby is turning 5 years old... it happens so fast.

When was the last time you spent hours and hours just having real, genuine, pure-to-goodness fun?
(Last night at the club, sure as hell, doesn't count- and if that's your definition of fun... someone needs to get a life, and get it together)

Arbitrary Mind Picks #3

Top 5 of my greatest concerns this week:

5) Friendship is never an ultimatum. It shouldn't be difficult to maintain either. If it's one of the two, or worse, both- there's something wrong. RED FLAG!

4) My tan is sad. I think the sun rays reflect off my skin. Wackness.

3) Dylan is gaining weight. It looks great on his face. He follows me around the house and always asks me what i'm doing. He's awesome and i absolutely love him. He's doing great things with Lego and can pour water from a pitcher into his own glass all by himself. His birthday is coming up. I can't believe my baby is 5 years old.

2) My laptop is running out of memory space. What am i supposed to do?

1) I have to make it to Switzerland first week of June!!! Oh, and i can't wait to play in Dubai and Qatar. That's gonna be fresh. =)

Hi. My name is Thea...

I hate to admit it... but i'm addicted to Facebook.

Then again, if you think about it, so is everybody. haha!
What can i say, it's entertaining.
It's a good way to keep up with friends.
It's easy to stay in touch and keep up to date with what everyone is doing.
Best of all, it makes for great gossip. For some reason, people like to put all their $#!+ on blast.

I need to get off this computer before i start surfing around again. I feel like i'm on stalker status.
The world is still out there and life moves on... outside of Facebook. Or twitter. Or Myspace. Or Friendster. You get the idea.

There's nothing heavier than hate in your heart. Let it go already.
People make mistakes. We're all human.
There's a time limit for everything... know when your time is up.
You will get hurt no matter what. Deal with it.
Shit happens. It's a reality we all live with.
Be happy. Life is too short to waste your time being miserable.
Always put yourself first. You know what's best for you.
I will forgive... eventually. But i don't forget. That's just how it is.
Just because someone is very understanding doesn't give you the right to push them over the edge. Don't test them- who do you think you are?

My feathers have been ruffled. My aura has been disheveled. My zen has been misplaced. Enough already. I'm done.

I have things to live for. I have people that matter. I have a reason to get up everyday and i thank the higher beings for everything i've been given.
My life moves on. It's also a very good life.

I'm not dented...

How are you today?

Choose Wisely

I've said it before, i'll say it again- your life is made of phases. The people you choose to surround yourself with make that phase. You are who you are because of who have entered your life, the impression they leave with you, and the experiences you have gone through.
Learn your lessons well, take hits with a grain of salt, cherish the good times, and pick your friends carefully.
Life is too short to put up with unnecessary bullshit.

When red flags are raised in every direction, people are running towards you with worried looks on their faces, hands flailing in the air, warnings are belted out, chances are- there's something wrong.

When people have been down a certain path, the same one in which you are on, when they've turned around, got off it, and tell you not to go down there- i reckon it'd be best you listen to them. Unless they're absolutely crazy, i'm sure your friends mean you no harm and actually have your best interest in mind.

When you're at a buffet, and everybody avoids a certain dish, it's probably not a good idea to go for it. They're avoiding it for a reason.
Your parents mean well when they tell you to avoid that heroin addict in school. That's just what parents do.

Real friends are hard to come by. In today's society, with people so power hungry, career driven, self-sufficient, in a dog-eat-dog world- REAL people are rare, few and far in between. If you're lucky enough to find even ONE... treasure her/him.
They say you are a combination of the 5 people closest to you- choose wisely. This is a reflection of who you are.

I'm grateful for the people who have come and gone in my life... especially the ones who've decided to stay- I would do almost anything for you guys.
I'm thankful for the lessons i was taught growing up... listening to your parents saves you from undergoing a lot of crap.
I'm glad i was brought up to have an open mind, a lot of understanding, and being born under the Cancerian sign, i was cursed to be a loyal friend... i've tolerated a lot of bullshit in my time, but i always come out a better person in the end.
I'm thankful for the very few assholes that have made an appearance in my life... i know exactly what to avoid next time around. Thanks, good bye, and good riddance.
I appreciate the people who have my back, who see me through thick and thin, and will always be all ears when i call in the wee hours of the morning- you guys make me feel like a million bucks. The world is a better place because of you, and life is only more beautiful with you in it.

You only get one shot. You might as well do it right.
Treat your friends well.
Be happy.
Don't be mean- you'll regret it.
Don't tolerate the bullshit.
Quit sweating the small stuff.
Say what you mean and mean what you say... but watch the words that come out of that mouth of yours- be prepared to deal with the consequences.
Confront your fears- you'll find out it wasn't that serious. Being confrontational only makes things clearer.
Don't ever wish anything bad for others- karma is a bitch. Those who deserve it will get theirs in the end.
If you have to part, part in good terms. Regret, tension, hatred, and all that other bad stuff is bad for your soul. You'll age a lot faster too.
Have confidence in your decision and trust that the universe has a way of working things out on its own.
Everything happens for a reason.
Remember- choose wisely.
