It's funny how we get stuck. So many people are just stuck in a job they don't love, pretending every day that they are someone they really are not. It seems to me that there needs to be a change in how we teach our children. They should be taught that they can do something they love and that they should love themselves enough to give themselves that gift. They should be taught that if they are not happy where they are spending most of their time (i.e., a job), that they can work to get to something else. It will make them and their families so much more happy. We need more happy people in this world.
“We must reinvent a future free of blinders so that we can choose from real options.” --David Suzuki
You can do what you want, be who you want. Don't let anyone tell you that you cannot change your current circumstances. Reinvention is available to anyone. Don't pretend to love something that you really don't like at all. You have talents that the world needs. You are an individual. You don't have to be like your parents, like your teacher, or like you were in your 20's. Contribute to the world in a way that make a difference to society, and most importantly, makes a difference to you.
Reinvent yourself in a way that models your future success. Realign your existence to become the person you need to be to achieve your goals and become your best you.
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” --George Bernard Shaw

From Mexico City, we drove through Mexico to the little town where my spouse's family had a home. The town had only dirt roads, and there were interesting churches and other historical architecture. This experience of going to Mexico was the most interesting I have ever had. Mind you, I still didn't speak much Spanish, but everyone around me was speaking only Spanish. Even my spouse would talk to me in Spanish...which was more than frustrating.
We went to another town that was a bit bigger, got hitched in a hotel ballroom, had to sign a bunch of stuff with the Mexico government stating that we were married, and then were finally able to go to Cancun. I was so glad when that wedding was done! I'm probably still married down there. I have no idea and don't really care. It seems it's the perfect place to lose your head these days anyway;)
Cancun was beautiful. The water was so clear. You could see the fish and there were so many beautiful fish. We swam in the Caves in Tulum. We swam in remote beaches by ruins near Belize. We road on a bus where gorilla fighters came on to patrol. We went to a special show at an amphitheater where all of the states of Mexico were represented in song and dance. We went into the non-touristy part of Cancun to shop and look around at the real life there.
Once that trip was done and we got back to Las Vegas, the honeymoon was definitely over. I was starting to show my pregnancy. He was unengaged. It was the long end. The torturous end.
