So darling, darlinggg..

Today I realized so much. It's like everything that's happened over the past year happened and I guess I was oblivious to all of it & this morning on the bus ride to work it all just smacked me in the face. First off, I am a high school graduate/college student, how did that happen so fast? I can still remember the days being in grammer school thinking that it was so bad and how I just wanted to get out and now all I say is how I wish I was back there. It's funny how time flies and how you change without even realizing it. You waste your time wishing that you can go to the future and see what it holds for you and when your there you look back and see how great it was and that the future wasn't as great as you expected it to be, that you were fine before. It's like I've said before, you have to live in the moment cause when things are unexpected its raw you don't have any expections& thats when you live your life best. No let downs, no disappointments , just greatness.

Today I had a meeting and the DM showed us this video and man I think the best part is when the guy making the documentary talks at the beginning, however I couldn't find that version. So basically the director has mad several short documentaries like this one and he said that one day he was walking down the street and he heard this man singing and he has never heard a voice like that and he said the best kind of music is not the one that so popular but the one with heart and thats raw with emotion and I totally agree with him cause well I think its amazing... here is the link to the video..

So if you don't know by now I work at Starbucks, and at our meeting today they told us that Starbucks is now proudly apart of the organization ( RED ). If you don't know what RED is it's an organization to help people in Africa get shots and pills to help fight Malaria, Tuberculosis, and AIDS. I am so happy to be apart of such a great thing. Apple, Converse, Dell, MTV, GAP and I can't remember who else are also apart of RED but it's amazing how many lives have been saved because of these companies and now my company/ ME! is also apart of this great organization, just makes me feel so inspired to do so much more.
With that said, I was talking to my sister the other day and it is already November, there is less than 45 days until its 2009. two thousand and nine. Where did 08 go? I have no clue but I plan to make 09 unforgettable! Yes people its true I have a resolution for the new year, no I dont want to lose weight, or quit a bad habit, I want to make 09 the best year of my life. I just don't want to waste another year of my life and then its November 2009 and I have nothing to show for it. So what exactly is my resolution? I plan to make a list in these last days of 2008 and apply my list in 2009. I want my list to have things I've always wanted to do, things I would'nt normally do, and things that I've never done, nothing too crazy like sky diving or anything but reasonable things that I would love to do. I think that I can do it and once I have my list on paper I'll blog and tell you all about it! I guess you can say I'm ready to let it all go , I'm ready to say good-bye to 2008 and HELLO 09! ;]

Live it up people, we only get one chance to do this so why not make the most of it?
Living with the what Ifs and being scared just limit you, why not take a chance everyonce in a while?

Well Kiddos, that's all I got for today !
