IN THE MOMENT - Printed Trousers

Hey Guys,

I've been spotting a new trend this spring that I'm really loving. It's the floral/printed jeans and trousers. It's definitely a statement piece and very trendy so I wouldn't want to invest too much in one but it would be fun to run around in during spring.

I found some really cute one's for reasonable price on Asos, Zara, and Topshop. I can't wait for the sun to come out~

I completely lost it yesterday..failed in loving others

Hey Everyone,

I hope you guys are all having a great week so far. My week was really great despite a little incident yesterday.

I was having lunch with a friend yesterday at Porto's in Downey and it was a beautiful sunny day. I was really looking forward to catching up with my friend. Before we sat down to enjoy our lunch I had to go to the bathroom to change Topher's diaper. It was really packed and busy inside the restaurant and there was barely any room to move around the tables. I excused myself and tried to get through in between the space between the chairs. I felt bad because the stroller was a little big and nudging peoples chairs a little but most of the people were extremely understanding and moved thier chair for me except for one lady.

As I was passing by she looks at me and say's " Excuse me you can go around next time." So, I asked "Where? There's no room." She points to the opposite direction where there's a baby sitting in a high chair. I felt so dumbfounded and couldn't believe this lady. Also, she had two kids of her own. I was going to say something but I just shook my head and walked away.

As I was in the bathroom changing Topher I couldn't resist this overwhelming feeling of anger and disbelief. I felt so mad I wanted to say something to her. I knew I shouldn't and just walk away but a part of me wanted to say something to her so bad. Usually I would just walk away but this time I just couldn't. It's definitely the fact that it was a little towards my son. So, I completely lost it and told her what was on my mind.

Did I feel better? Honestly and a bit guiltily, I did. Does that mean I did the right thing? Sad to say but it wasn't. I asked myself in the bathroom, 'What would Jesus do?'  He would maybe ask her a question? He might say, "Are you ok? or simply just walk away?" I guess there's many things I could have done but I chose to stand up for myself which shows that the center was me. I obviously was only thinking about myself and my feelings. Was this wrong? To be frankly honest I'm still going back and forth but one thing I am sure of is that God said to love our enemies as well.

This definitely doesn't discourage me or make me feel bad about myself but helps me to realize that it really isn't me who's changing me but it's my willingness and God's strength that will truly help me to be more like Jesus because let me tell you IT'S HARD but as I told my husband, what in life that's rewarding easy?

Life is hard so I'd rather chose a life with God that's hard but truly rewarding then a life that's hard with no vision.

Failure is the road to our success~

Until death do us part...

Dear Everyone,

I wanted to share a great story with you guys that defines once again what True Love really looks like..

Her name is Katie Kirkpatrick, 21 yrs old. Next to her is her fiancé, Nick, 23. (Pic1)

This picture was taken prior to their wedding January 11th, 2005.
Katie has terminal cancer and spends hours in chemotherapy.
Here Nick awaits while she finishes one of the sessions...(Pic2)

Even in pain and dealing with her organs shutting down, with the help of morphine,
Katie took care of every single part of the wedding planning.
Her dress had to be adjusted several times due to Katie 's constant weight loss. (Pic3)

An expected guest was her oxygen tank. Katie had to use it during the ceremony and reception.
The other couple in this picture is Nick's parents, very emotional with the wedding and to see their
son marrying the girl he fell in love when he was an adolescent. (Pic4)

Katie , in a wheel chair listening to her husband and friends singing to her. (Pic5)

In the middle of the party, Katie had to rest for a bit and catch her breath.
The pain does not allow her to stand for long period of time. (Pic6)

Katie died 5 days after her wedding. To see a fragile woman dress as bride with a beautiful smile
makes you think... happiness is always there within reach, no matter how long it lasts.....
lets enjoy life and don't live a complicated life. Life is too short.
Work as if it was your first day.
Forgive as soon as possible.
Love without boundaries...
Laugh without control
and never stop smiling.
Please pray for those suffering from cancer.
We all have close to our heart.
Keep this going.

Prayers are always answered.

Life is too short to argue and desperate. .

As I read this story I'm truly inspired by her fiance's love. It's truly beautiful to know that her fiance stuck by her side as he saw her fight for her life. He married her knowing that she may not live more then a few months or few days. If that isn't true love I'm not sure what is. 

True love still exists in this world~

Hey Everyone,

I'm currently really into flared jeans. It's complimenting to most body types and it's very stylish. I'm more of a jeans type of girl so flare jeans is a basic must have for my closet. 
Jeans: Levis/ Shirt:Victoria Secret/ Hat:UO/Bag:Coach/ Jewels:Vintage, Mikkat Market/ Watch: MK/ Belt:AA/ Sunglasses:Karen Walker

We went to Seal Beach on the weekend for some R&R. We had amazing brunch at The Creme Cafe and had a great family time. If you live in LA or visiting you definitely have to stop by this restaurant. It's one of the best brunch restaurant I've been too. Hope you guys all had a great weekend as well.

I'm too old or too young

Hey Everyone,

I've been reminded several times these past few months of a great advice I read from a book called "The Magic of Thinking Big" a few years ago. We tend to make excuses to ourselves when it comes to putting forth action. We all have great ideas and intentions but very few actually puts in the action. Some people have the "age" excusitis which will get you nowhere.

An example of someone with age excusitis is a person who we will call Stacy wants to change her career in a whole different direction but she feels she's too "old" to start now. She says, " I'd have to start from scratch. And I'm too old for that now. I'm 40."

The truth is it's never too late.

The book say's to look at it like this:
When does a man's productive life begin? Let's say 20. Then, when does a man's productive life end? Let's say they stayed in good shape and they love their job, so around 70 years old. So, a man's productive years stretch from 20 to 70. That's 50 years in between or half a century. So if Stacy's 40 she's only spent 20 years of her productive life. She has 30 more years left. In other words, she hasn't even reached the halfway point.

If you were Stacy will you spend another 30 years doing something you don't like to do or start what you love now and spend the remaining 30 years feeling more fulfilled?

It's not how old we are that's important but our attitude towards age that makes it a blessing or a barricade.

It's the same thing for the "I'm too young" age excusitis. A lot of young adults including myself are worried when they have to manage/ supervise people older then them. We have to remember that we never would have been given that position if someone didn't think we had the right skills. Age has nothing to do with your expertise. Have confidence and be respectful. Youth is a liability only when the youth think it is.

I had to break away from this when I was 22 years old. I was supervising people much older then me and it was hard for me especially because of the whole Korean tradition. Some Korean people really take the age gap seriously and expects a certain type of respect automatically from someone who's younger. This book really helped me to build more confidence and not let the age get in the way of striving for my dreams.

I hope this helps you guys as much as it helped me in my life.
