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

Why not? Why not be positive.

Why not go the extra mile for someone else.

Why not do just a little more.

Why not expect more from yourself.

Why not remember that we live in this

the greatest country in the world.

Why not dream big.

Why not accomplish big.

So I ask you Why not?

and Why not you?

Thinking Of Nassau.

DSCN6260

This picture was taken in Nassau

on my last trip there. Today my toes

feel frozen and I find myself  wishing

with all my heart I was there.

I am sure my wife will get a kick from

this pic. I had been there before but she

had not and she had an amazing time.

We are at a time of the year when many

make goals and plans and me being one

that has traveled extensively have one

humble piece of advice for you all.

Put it in your plans. Make it a goal

and get some miles behind you and

some stamps on your passport.

This are memories that remain

and it is all worth it.

I wish I was feeling the breeze in

San Juan. Feeling the sun in Barbados.

Having a beer in Charleston. Eating

Sea Ray in Puerto Penasco or ceviche in

Mazatlan. Notice the pattern??? Warm,

very warm places.

Anyway gang…. Get after it.

Plan some travel and enjoy.

Please, please share some pics

with us all.

Have You Ever???

Screenshot_20170815-095204.jpg

Every now and then this thought

comes to mind.

For the most part I feel proud for

those things I have survived like:

being homeless, unemployed, broke,

rich, loved, hated, abandoned, betrayed,

alone, married, divorced, screwed, imprisoned,

left behind and so much more.

I am glad I am here, alive and still pushing

forward in trying to do and be better.

Grateful for my kids those here and those

elsewhere and for my wife and her

simingly endless patience towards me.

For those that left. For those that betrayed,

abandoned, I have just one thing to say

to you:                   Nothing.
