Squeeshy Things

the fun, warm, and squeeshy things of life

Early Morning Jog to “Sun Models” by Odesza ft. Madelyn Grant

Went on a beautiful morning jog on this wonderful trail!

I don’t think many people know about this trail behind my house, which is sort of a good thing. It mainly feels like it’s designed for me. There is something about this trail that just makes me feel so alive, I’m not sure if it’s all the plants, flowers, and little critters. There’s a slight sweet scent when I’m running through here, especially in the evenings during dusk. I’ve snapped a few pictures of this place before, but the colors were really popping today!

The trail is quite short actually, it’s about a mile long, therefore I run back and forth or just walk. I also been listening to a fun little song called Sun Models by Odesza ft. Madelyn GrantSuch a cool song, it’s fun, flirty, and just makes you feel good. Take a listen!

Happy Birthday American Citizens!

SqueeshyThings 2: Learning to Appreciate Nature, It’s The Little Things In Life

learning to appreciate nature_squeeshy things

I grew up with plants around me, my mom loves plants; she even talks to them and tells them how pretty they are and how thankful she is for bringing more life into our home.

Personally, I thought she was crazy and I thought the same for every person that talked to plants. My first thought was, “hello, they don’t understand! and why are you being weird…please stop!” True story…

I actually enjoyed camping when I was little, my step dad had taking us camping for the first time when I was 7 to a beach in Mexico and I really enjoyed it…we then camped at a lake a year later. I remember having a good time, but not a great time. I became annoyed by nature up during my teens. It’s hard to say that because I look all around us and I become filled with joy and admiration at all the plants, birds, and everything.

For the past two years, I have changed my views completely. Jeff is a person who enjoys nature, finds peace, balance, and fulfillment. I always wondered how he did that. How he was able to walk out next to trees and feel completely at peace. I wanted that, I wanted to feel comforted and I could see how that happened. We started going on hikes because it was the only time he could workout and relax at the same time. We went throughout the four seasons of the year and I was able to see how it all changed every month. However, I started meditating about a year ago and by opening up it’s like I saw a whole new world; but what really changed it was after I had gotten Reiki (in which I will talk about in another post)

Ways to Enjoy Nature:

 

  1. go out for a sweet picnic out in the park away from everyone
  2. take slow walks at the park or the beach
  3. make sure to take pictures of little things that interest you or catch your eye.
  4. if you’re the passenger in a car, always look out your window instead of your phone
  5. find shapes in the clouds
  6. water your plants during dusk
  7. be curious and thankful

My Favorite Love Poem: by Pablo Neruda

” I do not love you as if you were salt-rose or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride,
so I love you because I know no other way than this:

Where I does not exists, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. “

- Pablo Neruda
(One Hundred Love Sonnets: XVII)

Squeeshy Thing 1: Life After College – The Lessons That College Taught Me

the big lesson that college taught me.

I have obtained my bachelors in music business!

I could not be any happier, I’m so excited to finally have accomplished college. I’m from Mexico and graduating high school is a milestone, let alone college. Anyways, I’m very proud of myself for being the first member in my family to go and graduate college.

I must admit, it was long and dreary but definitely worth it. I’m so blessed and thankful to have gone for a career that I’m passionate about. I had questioned it at the beginning simply because I was influenced by the “adults” to not go for a risky career that guarantees me no success. I was so close to enrolling in local college for business, even though there isn’t anything wrong that field, it’s not what I wanted to do.

I followed my heart and went for it, but I didn’t do it on my own, I had the support of loved ones. For a while, like any other college student, I questioned whether if that’s what I wanted to do, or maybe I wanted to be in the film industry.

College sure makes you questions a lot of things about yourself, like your SANITY! Sometimes we bitch and complaint about the awfulness of college, and it’s not until it’s over that you realize what a wonderful growing experience it is.

  1. It prepares you for the environment you’re going to be working in
  2. It teaches you about your strengths and weaknesses
  3. Core values, such as respect, honesty, and responsibility
  4. Behavioral skills, like discipline, organization, and time management
  5. Most importantly, it teaches you to never give up
