Regrets in life

One of the main questions, friends and family might ask you, are what regrets do you have in life? To be honest, it really is a difficult question. It’s difficult to look back and remember what you regret in life. It’s a horrible feeling to think and feel that regret. It might make you feel stupid or embarrassed. At least for me anyways. I think the regrets I have in life are things I didn’t do, then things I did do.

One of the biggest regrets I have is I had a chance to study abroad in Spain when I was in undergrad and I didn’t take the opportunity. It was a couple reasons I didn’t go, mostly money. But when I look back, I could of made it happen. I could of used financial aid and I had some money saved up. Also, close friends of mine were going and it would of been a learning opportunity for me. If I would of gone to Spain, I wouldn’t of had that regret. Of course, I do have other regrets like not keeping in contact with a close friend or applying to that job. I guess that is one of the reasons regrets exists is to help us not make them in the future. Basically learning from a mistake. Not going to Spain or applying to a job have help me travel more and apply for more jobs. I even visit and talk to close friends more.

My main reason for this blog is to remind y’all and myself that when you have an opportunity to do something that will be beneficial, then do it.  Go on the cruise to Alaska, apply for that dream job, move to that big city, and keep in contact with that close friend. If not, you might look back and regret it. Life is to short to not do the things that can make you happy.

 

The Traveler

Close friends of mine, say I am “The Traveler”. They usually ask me how I can afford to travel and how can I go by myself.  I can afford to travel because I make it a priority. I feel experience is worth more than material things. I rather buy a plane ticket to Peru than clothes or home decor. I travel by myself sometimes, because its difficult to accommodate to other people’s schedules. When you’re in your late 20’s The majority of your friends work full time, have second jobs, have kids, or they’re just to busy to travel. Of course, when I can travel with friends I go with them.

Whenever I am in a bad mood, I think about traveling. Then my mood changes and I can’t stop smiling. Traveling helps me get through life or more like it helps me live life. It keeps me going and keeps me sane. Traveling makes me feel like I am doing something with my life. By experiencing different cultures, meeting new people, and learning new things. I love being able to look back at my traveling pictures and reminisce. My office, even has postcards of different places. It motivates me.

I don’t know if I consider myself “The Traveler” like my friends do. Mainly because I still haven’t been to a lot countries. I haven’t even visited all the major cities in the United States. What I do know is that I like to travel and want to continue. Whether it’s visiting a Texas city, a different state, or a different country. And I feel like that makes me a Traveler.

Work mornings

Waking up in the morning for work can be difficult. Especially, when it’s still dark outside. Every time I wake up, I count the remaining days until the weekend arrives. Once I’m at work I’m fine and complete my tasks, it’s the getting up, getting dressed, and commuting to work that I’m not too fond of. To help me with this morning blues, I listen to some music and turn on the lights. Of course, coffee is a must! I don’t know how I lived life before coffee. Also, other motivations are thinking about my next big trip or talking to my friends and boyfriend. I’m actually going to Las Vegas soon and my nephew’s birthday is coming up. It’s those things that help make my mornings better. Tomorrow morning, I’m going to try that molten latte at Starbucks. Yum sounds delicious, I hope it is. We all just need to think about things that make us happy even little things like a molten latte. This will make the mornings easier and those work days go by faster, and who doesn’t want that.
