Last Friday I got some shocking news from my sister.

One of the girls I went to high school with was in a horrible car accident. She was driving on the 210 merging to the 15 freeway and was hit by a dump truck that didn’t see her. As it tapped her car, it cause it to start spinning and flipped several times before she was ejected from the car.

It was such a heart breaking story because this girl; Faith Hawkins was such a beautiful person. She was the rare person who was beautiful inside and out. I had the pleasure of getting to know her through a musical play we were both in. She had such an amazing singing voice that I always felt that she was going to go places. Never did I think that this would ever happen to her. After reading that story, it really proved to me that you have to be alert at all times. You can’t always think that everyone is being a safe driver because things can just go wrong in a blink of an eye.

All weekend I thought about her and how unfair it was that she had to be taken away like that.  Her story really spoke to me in many different ways. It made me vow that I would be very careful whenever I get behind the wheel. To become more passive and in-tuned with my surroundings. But what inspired me from all this was the kind of person she was. Faith never judged anyone, she never felt like she was better than anyone. Every where she went she brought this energy that was warm and energetic. Whenever you were with her, you could help but smile or feel so overjoyed. She has truly inspired me to be that person. Since she is no longer here to keep it going I want to make a promise to her that I will strive to be as loving and caring as she was. To spread love and positivity where ever I go.

Everyone will deeply miss her and I send nothing but prayers to her family. I hope they find peace in these moments of sorrow.

 

 

Monday Motivation

The week has started once again. It seemed to me that this weekend just flew right by.

I hope you all had a fun weekend with your mom. Today I was reading such a heartbreaking story of how an instagram post touched many people. Since it was Mother’s day weekend Mindy Kaling decided to post a photo on instagram to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s day. But she also wanted to take a moment and comfort anyone who is missing their Mom. Many people shared how much they miss the smallest things their mom use to do. It was so heartbreaking hearing newly mom’s wish that their Mom could meet their first child.

It made me realize how important each day is and that we have to remember to remind people how much they mean to us. If you have time and a box of tissue I recommend you read some of the stories. Be warned though because you will seriously need those tissues.

As for my Mom’s Mother’s day, my boyfriend and I went to a family gathering. We usually celebrate Mother’s day with all the mom’s on Saturday. So I got to see a bunch of Aunts, cousins, etc..

I decided to be crazy and make my mom her gift. My mom loves Wonder Woman. She especially loves watching all the old seasons of Wonder Woman. Something you don’t know is that I consider my mom to be Wonder Woman. She has always managed to do the impossible and is always sacrificing herself for others. So I made her a Wonder Woman piñata from scratch. It was definitely a challenge for me especially because I knew nothing about piñatas. My boss and I would brain storm how I could make this work. Everything was going good until I realized that I was running out of time. Because I am only human I procrastinated and literally didn’t finish it until 2:00 PM on Saturday.  I was already late to the party and still had to take a shower.

But since I have such an amazing boyfriend he decided to play arts and crafts with me. He is the best illustrator I know, so I assigned him to draw out her outfit. If he never stepped in and helped me I would have never finished. Not going to lie I was like five seconds from having a meltdown and since my bf heard it in my tone he became my little helper.

So here it is! Isn’t it too cute!!! I am so proud that I figured it out and that it actually looked like the lego version of her. If you want me to make a post about how I made her just comment and like below. Feel free to share with your friends.
