Whoever said that diamonds are a girl's bestfriend...never owned a dog.
The theme of April from my book The Happiness Project.
¤Sing in the morning
I don’t sing in the morning (haha) I listen to songs before I get up from bed. One or two inspirational songs and I’m ready to face another day of challenge.
¤Acknowledge the reality of people’s feelings.
Over the time of wandering on my own I realized the fact that it’s my responsibility to keep myself sane and not to rely on other people even your close friends… I acknowledge their feelings by letting them go, by letting myself off from the picture & by respecting their decisions.
We all have own battles.
¤ Be a treasure house of happy memories.
I guess I tried or I’m trying everyday to make happy memories from this “on my own” life abroad. I’m embracing this chance, the independence, the solitude…
¤ Take time for projects
This I have to work on, what am I doing? Aside from reading blogs and browsing the internet, listening to music… time to think of a project.
How about my love for scrapbooks? Hehe…that’s a project, right? (Hmmm for a 26 years old?) Awww
My love for photography?
My love for books?
My love for writing?
Beach on my mind.
My love for roadtrips?
I love water, beach, sand, sun, friends and eveything that I feel when I see the sun by the beach.
So, the title is let’s go places (hey talk about the place you’ve been to haha)
My friends and I’d a quick trip to the beach ♡ and before that we spent less than an hour at the Carlsbad Flower Fields
Where: 5704 Paseo Del Norte, Carlsbad California.
Flowers for me?
I read that it’s a 50-acre Flower field set on a hillside that overlooks the striking Carlsbad, California coastline. We strolled around but didn’t get to try the wagon rides/tractor (a sign that I will be going back with a happier heart)
It is open to the public during spring season and I’m happy to have been invited by friends I sure love flowers :)
After the spring season and the farm is closed to the public, the flowers are allowed to dry. Then in mid-summer, workers dig up the bulbs to be distributed for sale. soon the planting begins for the next cycle of life
The cycle reminded me of Ecclesisates 3
A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What do workers gain from their toil?
10 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.
11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.
13 That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.
14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.
15 Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.
A time to look at the brighter side of everything....
A time to embrace silence and just move forward.
A time to focus on more important aspects of life.
Ranunculus are the flowers produced at the Flower fields.
When at the flower field, take in the beauty of the flowers. Walk and be amazed of God’s wonderful creation… feels like you’re staring at a big painting when you’re there.
There’s an outlet there too, walking distance from the flower farm. One good reason to go back next spring season yay to shopping.
Happy Easter! Endless possibilities :)
Another important event of every April is Easter!
Easter is Hope.
