Over the past month Santa Barbara High School has been having a Pennies for Patients drive for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  One student, Edwin, has been donating $10-$20 a week. Yesterday he donated $40.  Today he insisted that we accept his $100 bill, saying that he felt he wasn't giving enough.

This act of kindness brought tears to my eyes. This young teenager is setting an example for everyone of what it means to give freely and openly without expecting anything in return.

I am donating $20 and writing an anonymous letter of appreciation to this young man. Would any of you like to join me?

The feeling is not comparable to anything else. I can only describe it as an exploding warmth flowing from deep inside, like the hotness that travels through your body after having taken a shot of tequila (but stronger). It's scary... yet mesmerizing at the same time. You want to back off because you don't understand and this feeling has made you feel vulnerable, but there's also the curiosity of wanting to know more. And even though you have no idea what just happened there is a strong sense of peace and a deep understanding that right then, at that very moment, you're right where you're meant to be, you're with whom you're meant to be with, and that something amazing is about to happen. 

I am grateful to have been able to feel this. Has anyone else felt it?

There is a strong sense of magic in my life. I don't know where it comes from but I feel it, and those closest to me sense it and know it, too.

When does this magic happen? Sometimes it's unprecedented, like someone watching over me and lending me a hand when I didn't know I needed it. Sometimes it comes as inexplicable coincidences that are so magical they are more likely divine interventions. Sometimes it's a deep sense of 'knowing' that I can only describe as someone whispering to my soul what I need to do, what I need to say, where I need to go, what dreams I need to fulfill, when I'm in danger, and what people I need to seek out in my life. Sometimes it's a strong emotion that I can't ignore, and sometimes it takes the shape of dreams and visions.

Wherever this magic comes from, it seems to only keep coming when I continue to be honest, do what's right and fair, feel happy, listen openly, express gratitude, make peace, and give love without letting fear stop me from speaking my mind and pursuing what I need to do. 

What is this magic's flaw? It will often tell me when I'm going down the wrong path, but rarely tells me which path is the right one. When I'm on the wrong path I feel sick, sad, stressed, uneasy, and worried. Most often, to re-calibrate, I have to pick a different path and just see where it takes me. I guess that's the beauty and mystery of life - you have choices as to which paths you follow, but it's up to you to continue to try the wrong ones until you find your way to the one you're meant to be on.... and once you find the right one, to not let yourself get lost again.

<3 Too often we see things that don't exist while remaining blind to what's right in front of our eyes. <3

Your rational mind and irrational heart make you quite the complex equation.  If I could figure out the root of your soul I’d draw a diagram, solve for x, and find a solution.  But since your problems are bigger than root two, my distance increases as my love for you decreases, knowing only you can solve you.

"Date a girl who dances salsa because she is the kind of girl who is beautiful inside and out. She knows she doesn’t have to prove herself–not to you, not to anyone–because she is her own woman. She is beautiful that way. There is something about her that remains attractive even when she has gone sweaty after three hours of dancing. Maybe it is the fact that unlike other girls who always try to look their best to impress, a salsera knows that beauty is never about make up or clothes. It is what is inside you. She is not superficial. She acknowledges beauty when she sees it but she knows how easily it can fade away."

Lol so far I agree... I wonder what they would say about a girl who not only dances salsa but also has parrots, works with raptors, plays racquetball, sings in a choir, and spends her days teaching math to children .... :)

<3 He's holding back, he's hiding, but what I can't decide. 
Why won't he be the king I know he is, the king I see inside? <3

Introduction
My name is Griselda and I love my life. :)  I am so very grateful for all the blessings I have been given, my family, my friends, the people I will still come to meet and the experiences I've had and will have.   I try to live my life to the fullest as much as possible.  This means being open to new experiences, making the most out of my friendships, and never taking anything for granted.  So I do dance like nobody's watching, I sing like nobody's listening, and I love like I've never been hurt.  Life's too short to live in fear.
Bragging rights
Piano player, Rubik's cube solver, artist, singer, dancer, parrot trainer, flan and mole maker extraordinaire, contact juggler, crocodile wrangler... ok ok just kidding about that one ha ha. I like to dabble in as many things as possible :) You never know what you'll like unless you give it an honest try!
