BLAST FROM THE PAST: A LITTLE PICNIC & PLANES

Summers in Chicago are the days that I long for. Hot sun on my skin. The sun and I have a very special relationship. I swear every time that I am out with the sun beaming down on me, I can feel myself getting full of energy and life. I know, that sounds a bit dramatic, but I swear it’s true. LOL

Lately in Chicago, our hot days are taking longer to get here. We are currently in the middle of April and still SNOWING! Needless to say, I am really missing summer days right now. Hopefully, soon, we will see them again. Until then, here is a blast from the past post:


This summer in Chicago has not been the hottest. I don’t know what is happening with the weather lately, but it has been all over the place. Chicago has days where it begins cloudy, starts storming in the afternoon and by evening its nice and sunny and hot. So, having a whole day of heat and sun is really a luxury now. Luckily, the other day we had one of these days so Kat & I decided to have a picnic out by our neighborhood park. It was such a relaxing way to have lunch together. I wish we would have done more of it during the summer, but seeing as we have very little summer left we might not get another chance at a picnic this year. At least we have something to look forward to next summer. We ended up having some Banh Mi, mine was from a store and Kat decided to make her own. We also got a mango smoothie and some salad. It all turned out to be extremely good! The Air & Water show was on this day also and living so close to the lake, we got to see and hear the planes.

Messages from Within

Life is such a crazy and exciting thing. You really don’t ever know what it is that you are going to get from it. And Time! Man, is time a funny thing as well, and then when you put both together… whoosh…. so many possibilities.

I’m not sure how many people in my life know about my connection to spirits. When I was younger- I’d say maybe 3-5, I was able (and still am, although I have no control over it) to see spirits and also talk to them. My family loves to tell the story of how when I was younger, I would talk to the Old Man who lived in my grandparents house. I’d be playing alone upstairs in the attic, a finished attic with bedrooms, not the scary movie ones with cobwebs and squeaky floor boards. Throughout my life, I have seen spirits, both physically, and through my third eye as well. At times, they send me messages through songs.

This blog has seen many different views of life, it’s changed in context and I’m sure it will keep on changing as I change. And I have changed. I’ve changed how I think, how I react, and how I view the world. It’s weird to think that a person can completely “change” who they are. But, what I have come to realize, doing inner work and working on my negative patterns in my life, is that maybe we aren’t changing who we are, but maybe we are just becoming who we truly are. As genuine loving people who make choices from a open hearted & grounded point of view. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s not always easy, and there are some people that trigger those not so nice reactions from us. It happens. That’s part of being human. I’m not sure how this blog is going to look, and I’m done trying to mold it into other blogs I see. I’m going to use this as a platform to share the wisdom and knowledge and messages I get while walking down the path of a healer.

So Many Changes

There have been so many changes that have happened since I’ve last been on here. Some good, some bad, some ugly, some healing, but ALL with lessons.

I’m not sure how this blog is going to be looking going forward- all I know is that I need to get back to writing. It’s been a form of meditation, although I didn’t see it like that before. Now, I realize that many times when I write, I am able to clear my mind and allow for wisdom to flow through. I know this because many times I question if those are my actual thoughts LOL.

I’ve recently actually started meditating, and I’ve gotten messages that I need to start writing again. Even if i have to start small- just writing down thoughts, slivers of wisdom, or just to get rid of the junk. Ha! Peaceful Warrior joke right there!

So, with that being said – my blog will probably change format within these next… whatever measure of time… because what is time really? Lol

So, until the next time I have thoughts floating around- make sure to always find the light in the world.
