I will be back SOOOOON

I will be back soon. *Pinky promise* 
In the mean time here is a VLOG to hold you over

Food for thought: I will do anything to positively impact and inspire you; but my main intention is to inspire you to be YOU. Don't lose sight of YOUR originality. Be yourself; something no one else can ever be.    ---xoxo 

God Bless & Stay tuned...

shoulda, woulda, coulda

One of the biggest debates I've argued within myself, derived from this one common and overused phrase: "Life's too short." 

Let me explain...
I've been known to be a perfectionist. An overachiever. I am a planner; I mean hardcore planner. Organizational and neat freak. Ask my closest friends, ex boyfriend, my Dad, anyone; Britaña rarely does anything that is spur of the moment or out of her comfort zone. I know, I know...I'm working on it. 

Here was my debate:

Should we be spontaneous, more carefree and riders of the free-spirit-wagon, because life is too short? 
Because life is too short, should we have a plan and be responsibly organized in order to orchestrate a flourishing, well thought-out future?

Two years ago, I would have have taken the second option without a doubt. I would have stood a strong ground in believing that this was the only way to analyze and forcefully apply the phrase "life's too short." Two years later, I've realized because I was in favor of living such a structured, thought-out life, I was missing out on so many fun, impulsive opportunities. 
 I've realized that being unorganized or not having some sort of plan would drive me just bananas, so I can't and won't give up that trait. 
But have I toned it down? Absolutely. Am I trying to be more spontaneous? Absolutely. 
Why? Because I'm embracing the beautiful and unquestionable fact that Life IS too short.  

I don't want to take a look back on my life and think to myself:

I should have traveled more.
I should have taken that chance.
I should have been more of a risk-taker
I should have been more open-minded.
I should have grabbed that opportunity and ran with it. 
I should have gone on that date. (baaha!)
I should not have overanalyzed things.
I should have made that call. 
I should have not taken things so seriously.
I should have danced more.
I should have laughed more.
I should have had MORE FUN. 


I'm cutting out the I shoulda, woulda, coulda's. I'm kissin' em goodbye! 

As long as you live a HAPPY life, whether it be super spontaneous or super reserved, maybe even a superb balance of both: Do more of what makes you HAPPY. Be wise; yet always remember there is a sense of thrill in the unknown; and if you don't try something you'll never know whether you missed out an incredible opportunity or not. Create YOUR life.
 Life is like a bank account: You withdraw from what you put in. Keep depositing the happiness, my friends.

God Bless & Stay Tuned...

I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. Ecclesiastes 3:12
