They say that things happen for a reason ...

I took a mini-vacay to the ocean this past weekend. I love it there. I love the affect of the ocean on my overwhelmed nerves. Moments like those don’t happen very often, so I try to soak them up to the fullest extent. And when I do, boy, what a fine bath to bathe in. (xo Ali) :-)

On this particular trip, I discovered that I need to get away as much and as often as possible. I need to try to relearn myself and what I’m all about, because lately … I’ve been losing myself; losing my way. I’ve been spending too much time working around other people’s schedules, making sure that everybody else is ok, when I am not. And I did that, somewhat, on this “vacay” as well. But I learned what I do and do not want to do anymore … and that’s a lesson that I need to live by. I just gotta trust my heart, instead of my “infected (to an extent)” brain.

It’s destined to be. It’s all that I think about. It’s gonna hurt some people that I love, but if that is the price for my own happiness? Well, so be it.



  1. Hey just came across your blog.

    I agree with you - it's very important to take time out for yourself, just so you can take the rest of the world in too. I need to do the same :)

    Followed your blog, can't wait to come back. Hope you like mine enough to follow too? :)

  2. I'm glad that you are starting down the path of putting yourself first. I'm going to Puerto Rico for the holidays and hoping to do some self-reflection as well.

  3. I like your blog, if you want, we can follow eachother. :)

  4. I'm having a valentine's giveaway on my blog if you'd like to check it out. xx

  5. Yeah I definitely think that sometimes you need to take time out for yourself :)
