Not again…Grrrrr 

Ok, so I have been known to have done this a few times before, but it’s been awhile and I was happy to forget about it. You write something of substance and feel pretty good about it, you’re nearly done as you check it over once more, almost there you decide to make a slight correction and then it happens. You hit the unknown mystery button that makes nearly all of your written words disappear, wiping out whole paragraphs. Frantically to try to reverse whatever you did, but oh no…not that again….grrrr and you are left at square one and a good practice run as you decide to start over or not.

There is no going back, no undo that will correct what you just did and worst of all you don’t even know what it is you did and which evil little button did such a horrible thing as to delete all of your words. And on top of it you don’t know how to prevent it as it could happen again in the future, and it has, multiple times by now. Now that some time has passed, it’s almost comical, but it definitely was not when it happened.  Shouldn’t there be a warning of some sort? Some kind of confirmation? Everything else of minor importance asks you to confirm a hundred times by saying “Are you sure you want to proceed?” Danger, this can not be undone and will be gone forever????  Nothing….just pooooof……gone. Really…”Tell me that I am not the only one this has ever happened to”

Well ok, only pictures it will be from a prior ocean trip to Monterrey, CA. With the upcoming adventure loading and a few days off coming up, the destination remains to be a secret and you will have to check back to see if my beloved mountains or the warmer ocean climate will win. 😉

This picture was taken along the shoreline in front of this massive cypress tree while leaving the foggy ocean to a mystery in the background. 

And we almost picked up a passenger with one of my furry little friends who wasn’t ready to part ways yet and almost made it inside the car. 



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. You are in good company, my friend! I can’t count how often that happens. If only WP would introduce an “undo”. Thus, when writing longer posts, I write in any other programm (Word, Mail) and copy the contents over. Lost too many posts, and can’t even describe what button I pressed before the words disappeared. Bloody IT…..have a great day, I’ll spend mine trapped in a steel tube at 40.000 ft over the Atlantic once more….Marcus

    1. Have a safe trip my friend and thank for letting me know I’m not the only one this happens to. The funny thing is that I used another writing program and I do copy it over to WordPress too once I think that I’m done. And still even in that other program the mystery button wiped out everything lol.
      Have a safe journey my friend. I will be waiving to the skies to say hello to you. 😉
