Entertaining possibilities

I woke up happy this morning and earlier than I had expected. I mean, I even had a song in my heart and I played it while I took a shower. I sang along to “Happy” by Pharrell and clapped along because I felt “that happiness is the truth” 🙂 

It’s interesting how you can find yourself entertaining ideas you once dismissed or deemed impossible. Oahu is the only Hawaiian island I have ever considered living on before moving here. But after reading the booklet, Preserving Paradise: Opportunities in Volunteering for Hawai’i’s Environment, I have grown more and more excited about exploring opportunities on the Big Island. This morning I was talking to one of my fellow classmates who happened to have recently bought a farm on the Big Island. “Really?,” I said. “I would love help out!” “Sure! We could use some help out there,” she said. Hmm…coincidence or the Universe at work here? 

Question of the day: Have you ever dismissed an idea only to actually follow through with it?  What happened? Are you happy you followed through on it? What did you learn from that experience?

Happy Saturday friends!


About Magaly L.

Five Facts About Me: 1. I was born in El Salvador, grew up in NY, and after being in the United States for almost 33 years, I finally became a citizen in 2013. I was super excited when I voted for the first time! 2. My personal favorites: chocolate, desserts, dancing, the beach, leisure travel, reading, juicing, gardening, cooking, spending time with family, and writing. I really do love chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate, but any chocolate is better than none. I also love red velvet cupcakes from my favorite bakery in NYC, Two Little Red Hens on the Upper East Side. And I love spending time in nature. There's something so peaceful about listening to the birds or listening to the waves break, that centers me in the present moment and reminds me that Divine order is at work in my life. 3. I come from a large family and I love it! My parents, two brothers, one sister, LOTS of cousins, aunts, uncles, abuelos, and my "gotitas de amor"-my nieces and nephews. 4. I am an educator both by training and at heart. 5. I have been living with PNES (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures) since 2007. Though this condition has been life-altering and challenging to live with at times, it has also led me to a more fulfilling life, strengthening my faith and helping me have the courage to pursue my passions and chase a couple of dreams.
