Hi August, Please Come In!

In Family, Lifestyle, News, Relationships, Spirituality on August 1, 2014 at 09:00

As I have mentioned before, since I was a little girl, I have always been a fan of calendars and all the special days marked on them. I love birthdays and anniversaries and that is just one of the reasons why August has always been THE month of the year. It is the one marked with my own holidays. The one that I was born in, and so did my dad, my younger sister, my cousins, my aunt and beloved friends. It was also the bittersweet last stretch of summer vacations when I was in school. Also, my first month in college. Years later, it was the month that I moved to the United States. The month that we got engaged. And the month that we chose for our wedding the following year.

No matter how rainy and sweaty it is in my hemisphere, August always comes with enough reasons to celebrate. No wonder it is “Happiness Happens Month”!

“…The dark, but hopeful side of uncertainty…”

Although this year I feel kind of blue at this time since some of my plans for August  fell through, other good news already arrived.

I am now looking forward to enjoying the unexpected, and embracing the dark, but hopeful side of uncertainty.

Dear August 2014, what else are you bringing with you?

No pressure, you have 31 days to unfold…

In the meantime, I’ll give you my bestBring it!

Your fan,

 Laura

Do you think I have enough planners?

Do you think I have enough planners?

I am!

I love to plan. Although sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan, I like to at least try. I am planning for a productive and fulfilling rest of 2014.

As I mentioned on “2014: Midyear Recap” this has been a good year overall, but I want to get the max out of the rest of it!

This is a preview of what is coming in the second half of the year:

*July:

-The FIFA World Cup finals. Who is your favorite?

-Writing and blogging. Blogging and writing.

-No traveling.

-Phase 2 of P90XBring It!

-Being productive while spending some time home alone, cheering from the distance for my husband who will be attending his most important career event of the year!

*August:

-My birthday monthI am turning 32!

-Our 5th wedding anniversary

May God bless our marriage so that we are as inseparable as these grains of sand. Amen.

-Still crossing my fingers to make it to my lovely friends’ weddings in the Dominican Republic!

-Phase 3 of P90X.

*September:

-Volunteering at TEDxManagua

Let’s keep in touch and see how this year unfolds!

With love,

Laura
