Celebration.

YES!! I am happy to report that

Peter the Ferret has reached his

goal weight of 3.5 Pounds.

It took us a while for him to lose

8 Ounces.

Now I on the other hand, am still struggling

with my weight loss. Back to Peter now.

Just joking. Weight loss as we all know

is a challenge at its easiest. No matter ,

we do not stop, we keep trying,

we keep doing it.

That friends, is the only way

to do it and truly make a difference.

Stay focus and remain successful.

Very, Very Personal Post.

498 (1)

If for just an instant God would forget that I am but a puppet of time and would bestow

upon me the gift of a chunk of life., I would use that time fully.

Probably, I wouldn’t say all that I think but I would definitely think about all that I say.

I would give value to things not because of what they are worth but because of what they mean.

I would sleep very little but I would dream more. I understand that for every minute we close our eyes

we lose sixty seconds of light.

I would walk while others stop, wake up while others still sleep.

If God would give me a chunk of life, I would dress modestly, lay face up to the sun uncovering

not just my body but also my soul.

To men I would show how wrong they are in thinking they stop falling in love when the grow old

without knowing that they grow old when they quit falling in love.

To a kid I would give wings but let him learn to fly on his own.

To old folks I would share that Death doesn’t arrive with old age but with abandonment.

So much I have learned from men.

I have learned that everyone wants to live a top the mountain not knowing that true happiness

comes in the challenge of the climb.

I have learned that when a newborn squeezes  with his tiny hand his father’s finger

he is trapped forever.

I have learned that a man only has the right to look down on another man when he is

helping him stand up again.

It has been so many things I have learned from all of you but really it will not be of much

use because when I am placed in that big suitcase I will already be dying.

Try to say always what you feel and do always what you feel deep inside your heart.

If I knew that today would be the last time that I will see you sleep, I would embrace you tightly

and pray to God  to allow me and be the  guardian of your soul.

If I knew this would be the last minutes I would see you I would tell you ” I Love You”

And don’t assume foolishly that you knew already.

There is always another tomorrow and life gives us another chance to mend things.

But if I am wrong and today is all we have left I would like to tell you “I Love You and I will never forget you”.

Tomorrow is not assured to anyone, old, young. Today could be the last time you see those you love.

Because of that: Wait no more. Do it today because if tomorrow never comes you surely will lament

the day that you did not take the time for a smile, an embrace, a kiss, the day when you were so busy to grant one last wish.

Keep those you love close to you, tell them to their ear how much you need them. Love them and treat them well.

Take time to say “I am sorry”, “Forgive me”, “Please”, “Thanks” and all the loving words that you know.

No one will ever remember you for your secret noble thoughts. Ask God the strength and wisdom to express them.

finally, Show your friends and loved ones just how much they matter to you.

Figure it out.

I found this picture by accident and it made me smile.

Just to be clear it is not one of mine.

Few things make me as happy as when I see one of

my kids or someone important to me with a camera

on their hands.

My father was in love of the still image and even though

he never actually did push it further he did get joy of

taking a pic and then sharing them with anyone who

happen to be near by.

I love photography and even though I have had some

success with it I find that there is so much still that I

have to discover and learn.

Gang. We are all different creatures and the things that

inspire us are different. Please, Please look deeply within

and get after it. If you are here you have thoughts of loosing

weight as I and so many others have. But, but there is more,

more to all of us and it would be a shame for “IT” for that

thing or things that are unique for us to go to waste and be

lost because we were not willing to pay the price.

I will not ever say that it will be easy because those things

that are worth it never are easy. But it will be worth it and that

I can say to you with not a single doubt.

Keep the desire to lose the weight but look more and deeply

at you and go for it. Go make it happen.

Victories And More.

I love it when the scale shows numbers I like.

I like the extra energy.

I like to pull out clothes I had not been able

to wear in a while.

but something that others can’t see

but I feel is that peaceful feeling of

wellbeing, health, strength, and yes

a bit of extra passion.  I do not need the scale

to tell me or show me.

It is not just what we see that we

need to pay attention to. It is also

how and what we feel inside.

Gang stay focus and enjoy what you

have earned. Health, strength, stamina,

endurance, passion, and extra days.

Walking and life lessons.

20170609_111815

In the middle of the desert between the I-10 and

the I-8 there sits the testing grounds for the military.

This was a great walk and an amazing opportunity

for a class for my kids whom I was home schooling

at the time. It was great to teach them hands on

about physics, projectile trajectory and also about

patriotism. Yes.. I consider myself a patriot even

though I was actually born in Mexico.

There is so much to be proud and grateful in this

my adopted country.

I wish those of us in the US could learn how to care

more for the country and a little less about our

own and very personal political views be them what

they might be.

Gang keep looking forward and pushing for your

dreams and goals.

I need to travel.

DSCN6006

Even though I go on short trips

today I find myself longing for a

long trip. Many miles, many days.

This picture of me was taken somewhere

in historic Charleston, SC.

Great weather, great food, good drinks.

Our lives are about more than just work or

paying the bills or losing the weight.

Life is about living it some.

This photo safari had me walking several

miles and taking many pictures.

Great times, great memories.

Go out and make some memories of

your own. Put some miles under your feet

and eat some amazing meals.

If you have a significant other just imagine

the impact this could have in your relationship.

Keep moving, doing and experiencing more.

Going For A Walk.

DSC_0033

Taking a walk by the ocean

is one of my favorite ways to think

or clear my mind. This picture I took

at the malecon (no clue how to translate

that word to English)  in Puerto Peñasco,

Sonora. Mexico. This is the place that as

of late I call home. I love the ex-pat life even

though I was actually born in Mexico.

It is great to live a life that allows us to

do what we love and be able to enjoy the

little things that give us happiness.

Gang we all have a side hustle that can

afford us a few of the little luxuries or

pleasures of life. If you are interested in

finding what is or could be your side

hustle let me recommend the book:

“Side Hustle” by my very good friend

Chris Guillebeau. He is also the author

of: “The $100 Start Up” which is also

pretty darn great. You may or may not

have an interest. Me… I want to enjoy more

while doing less and less. I have not worked

for anyone since August the 31st of 2011

when my position as General Manager

was eliminated. I love to travel and go

where I want when I want well… It is

as Master Card would say…… priceless
