Do Unto Others...

Only ignorant people do unto others as they would have others do unto them. The selfish and hypocritical world that we live in today does not care about you.

Okay, okay, that seems a little harsh.
But I mean to challenge that statement. 

I have, some would say a curse, of seeing the better side of people. And when I really care about a person that is the only side I see. You might say this is naive. You might be right. 

But the person who believes that this world we live in is such a horrible place is just as naive as the person who believes no one will ever hurt them. 

So what is right? What is this world really all about?
Each to their own.

But for me, I am cursed, or blessed, with the ability to see the good things in people even if they do not intend to show me. Not all people are naturally mean. I find it easier to be happy. Happiness takes less effort than always doubting, hating, worrying, and depressing.

I'm in Maimi!

Everyday I am thankful for the wonderful and beautiful people that I met on my trip to Europe a little over one year ago. 
A few of my Europe friends live in Miami, so my best friend and I took a 10 hour drive to the tip of Florida for a mini vacation and to reunite with our friends.

Life's Lessons

Life's lessons are never ending. 
The day that we begin to think that we have even a little tiny part figured out, everything changes. 
So on this day, I realize that I will never know the outcome of any situation, and assuming only, well you know what assuming does. 
Realizing that you were wrong is simply a humbling experience that life gives you to keep you in your place, life is impossible to figure out so stop trying.

Each day is a chance for new beginnings, 
stop worrying,
stop stalling,
stop fearing, 
because today is only going to be here for 24 hours.

I don't have time for that, and neither do you!
Get out there and enjoy these 24 hours that we call July 5, 2013 because shortly it will only exist in memories.

Lunch in Panama City, Florida

Bayou Joe's is the cutest hole in the wall in Panama City.

 This stairway really caught my eye.

This view!

Now I must get back to reality, I have a final due today for Diverse Learners! 

Wish me luck!

Warning: Welcome to Paradise

Hello everyone!! I hope that you are having a terrific Wednesday! Between finals and work I have been taking short trips to different cities in Florida. I went to Panama City Beach yesterday. It was windy, but somehow perfect! I always feel at peace when I see the ocean, until yesterday when I saw this caution cone on the boardwalk.

This really got me thinking, when beautiful feelings rule our minds and we are blinded by a seemingly wonderful tunnel vision, we replace our good judgement for trivial concerns. My advice would be to approach beautiful things with caution.

Have a great Wednesday, see you somewhere soon!
