Hello Blogger Friends

It has been quite some time since I have posted anything. I guess I have been caught up with so much that I have not taken the time to just sit down and write.
An exciting event coming up in the very near future is Coachella! Is anyone going? If you have no idea what it is, its a three days music festival in Coachella Valley filled with incredible music, people and surroundings.
I am especially excited to see The Strokes, Animal Collective and Arcade Fire this year, although there are many more bands performing. I will be attending the festival with all of my best friends, which makes the experience even more memorable.
Hope everyone is having an awesome week! (:

Footprints in our Hearts

"Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbour, co-worker, longest friend, lover, or even a complete stranger) but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints in our hearts,
and We are never, ever the same.

And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realised your potential, strength, willpower, or heart. Everything happens for a reason, nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless. The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience help to create who you become.
Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones.
If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.
Make every day count!! Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself; it will be hard for others to believe in you.
You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets."

When I read this, I was captivated! What do you think? My favorite lines are "Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints in our hearts, and We are never, ever the same." That describes my boyfriend. We have been together for a year and half tomorrow! Do you have someone in your life who has left their footprints in your heart?

Heavy metal saves Norwegian boy from wolves

"A 13-year-old Norwegian boy avoided being attacked by wolves by playing a heavy metal song on his mobile phone, the music web portal reported on Thursday.
The incident took place in the central Norwegian municipality of Rakkestad. Four wolves, who appeared before the boy when he was returning home from school, were scared away by the noise coming from the boy's mobile phone, the Russian website said.
The song that saved the boy's life was by thrash metal band Megadeth.
The boy said he had been told that in order to avoid being attacked by wolves one should not run away from them but attack them."

Pretty sick huh!

This is absolutely exquisite. Do you appreciate photography just as much as I do? I think it is incredible that we have the luxury to look at places like this through a computer screen. Maybe one day I will get the chance to visit!
