Thoughts on love

Mabuhay!

Reading this title you might be wondering what this post will be about as always. It may seem it could be bad or good or in between but take it as it is and open your mind and heart for greatness. 

Love is a very special bond between two people. It has ups and downs just like a mountain winding road but no matter how many curves there are in the way that have to be taken, the progressive movement towards the top just keeps on going. This driving force is the strong power of love and connection between people. It is amazing to me how two entirely separate beings can join mentally and spiritually as one even more powerful unit to reach new heights and conquer more of life. 

Here is a photo from our trip to the Philippines that shows the love in our faces for one another. (This is one of my favorite pictures of us). 


When I look at her, as you can see here, I melt inside and just feel so dang lucky. 


This photo really shocked me when I saw it to see how candid it was and the happiness it captured on our faces when we were at Monel’s best friend’s wedding. Truly we are blessed to have met and to be together. 

Every couple needs to be able to have fun and love each other while doing it. We took this photo below when in the Hong Kong airport before flying home lol. We used the app called Snow to add the funny effects. 


So as a closing statement, if you have found love in your life, cherish it and enjoy it as I hope you are already. If you have yet to find that special person that makes you feel all warm inside, then just be patient because the time will come. Who knows, maybe even on an airplane like us. 

Salamat (thank you) for reading!

Cheers and stay classy!

Adios,

Daily Prompt, Thoughts and Questions

Daily Prompt – Illusion

When we live in each day of our lives we may not necessarily see all the things we think we see. I am talking about illusions. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They can even come at various times of the day. 

Sometimes people are illusions in that they are true and honest at one moment and then in the next they are the complete opposite when you aren’t around. While out on a hot day you might think you see an ice cream stand or a pop machine with ice cold beverages in it, but when you get to it, it’s not there. 

There isn’t much you can do to stop illusions like this but you can choose the good side of them to see. It means your mind is still creative. In the people case mentioned above, all you can do is to ensure to surround yourself with true and honest friends.

To further elaborate on illusion, I am sure there are hundreds of thousands of interpretations and these are just a couple of them. One thing I know for certain is the illusion I have seen time and time again. In my past, which brought me to believe that every year on the Fourth of July, I had to be on the Torch Lake Sandbar in Northern Michigan drinking with friends and however many other random people from all over the place were there. 

This year, I had no interest in going there to have my boat get trashed with garbage and surrounded by drunk people. I ended up riding motorcycles with my dad to Boyne City and Horton Bay to see their awesome parades they have each year. If you ever get a chance, definitely go see them both, I promise you’ll love it!

Tiny Horton Bay, MI and the nice general store there. Horton Bay, “It ain’t over until the fat lady sings!” Always gets me.

Daily Prompt, Thoughts and Questions

Daily Prompt – Commit

Giving something your all, proving to yourself or someone else that you can and will do something, there are so many ways to show you are committed to something. 

To commit, for me, means to give something my all without giving into failure or giving up until I have truly given it my all. Commitment applies in many cases; work, school, family, friends, and so many more. 

Relationship commitment is a big key feature for a lot of people when they think of today’s Daily Prompt word. Committing to a significant other is one of my personal prides and I definitely put a lot of myself into being committed to Monel and I’s relationship.

There are a lot of people who might have trouble with commitment. Maybe it scares them, or maybe they’ve been hurt by someone before so they have a hard time trusting people and committing to someone themselves now because of it. Whatever the case is for you, try and commit to something and stick it out, give it your all!

Always remember, you have the power to do anything, no matter what anyone says!

What kind of things do you struggle with commitment on?

Stay classy!

Daily Prompt

Daily Prompt: Trust

Trust is a very touchy subject for some people but think about how key it is in your life. Without trust what do you have? One of the important factors in my life is based on trust. Growing up and going through the various stages of the Boy Scouts of America, the boys learn and live by many points that make up the Scout Oath and Law.

“A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.”

Living by these principles and following them is not always easy but it does provide many benefits.

Keep yourself trustworthy and connect with people in which you can trust. It will be a great relief knowing you don’t have to question your connection’s actions.
