Learning To Love

I figured now is a better time than any to share one of my biggest struggles that I have been fighting to over come for the past few years.

Over the past 5 or so years, my body has gone through some major changes, and I have had the toughest time embracing the changes that have occurred. I am ashamed to say that I am one of those girls that only post pictures from the shoulders up, so YES I am like the selfie headshot queen!

Learning to Love

I have come to the conclusion, that I have spent way to much time dwelling on the stupid stuff. I am not the same girl I was in high school, people get older and change. It’s life. Now I must focus all of my energy on living the life that I love and not worrying about what everyone else will think of me and how I look. If you have a problem with me or the way that I look, then that’s your problem not mine!!!

Over the past few weeks there has been so much going on around me, it seems like so many people have past away and more and more people are being diagnosed with  cancer or some kind of life threatening illnesses. I am so thankful that I am very healthy physically and mentally and I have been inspired to live my life to the fullest with no regrets.

Yolo

So lets make a promise to live every day like it’s your last and get rid of any negativity that is holding you down.

A new patient for Life

 

Eyewear for Fall

 

 

I feel like I have been wearing glasses forever, okay since I was 6.  So yeah that is forever (about 25 years). And it seems like for the longest time as an adult I have been looking for a really great  Optometrist.

 

I have bounced around and around to so many different Optometrist,  I feel like I went to a new one every other year. I was trying to find an Optometrist who really cared about the health of my eyes,  and not to mention  I needed someone who really wanted to help  me understand what was going on with my vision and eyes.

 

And I finally found what I was looking for yesterday at Mira Mesa Optometry. I have walked by Mira Mesa Optometry at least once a week for the last 2 years, sometimes I even walked inside to see what new eyeglasses were  in style for the season.  About a month ago was the last time that I walked in to take a look at their inventory of eyeglasses, the staff that greeted me at the front desk were so friendly and helpful as usual and as I was chatting with them, I decided to make an appointment for an exam because I had been putting it off for almost a year (time seems to be going by so quickly).

 

So I went in for my appointment yesterday with my husband which was a Saturday (a definite plus in my book since I work full time during the week) and I was greeted by the front desk staff, who again were very nice and friendly. They provided me with great customer service and made me feel welcomed and  very comfortable. I couldn’t help but notice that everyone working at Mira Mesa Optometry had smiles on their faces and they all seemed happy to be there working. And for those of you who know me, you know  the first thing I look for anywhere I go is customer service. The ability for employees to provide customer service will make or break the experience for me, and I love that the customer service at Mira Mesa Optometry is consistently wonderful.  But the icing on the cake for me with my whole experience was meeting Dr. Orlando Guiang. He took the time to listen to me and what I thought was going on with my vision and he also took the time to go over my test results and educate me on what was going on with my vision and eyes. He explained everything in a way that I could understand and he answered any and all of the questions that I had for him. I must say that Mira Mesa Optometry has gained a new patient for life!

 

I would like to give a HUGE shout out to everyone at Mira Mesa Optometry, thank you so much for taking such good care of me yesterday. I would recommend anyone looking for a Optometrist to check out Mira Mesa Optometry.

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: 

Do what you Love

 

 

This quote is so simple, yet so powerful.

If you love what you do your mindset will be in a great place without you having to stop and redirect your thoughts and feelings. Love is such a powerful feeling that cultivates positivity in your life, whether you know it or not. As long as you take time out of your day to do things that you love or start focusing on the things that you love most, you will start to see positive change in your mindset and life.

Today, I challenge you to sit down and think about what you love. Can you do the things that you love every day? Can you turn what you love into a career? What are the things that you love most in life?

Nail Polish LOVE

I must admit, I have a bit of a nail polish obsession.

 Nail Polish Love - VSI was going through my extensive nail polish collection today looking for a nice light pink color to paint my nails, and I decided to use the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish in the color 160 Mauve It. Mind you this nail polish has been sitting unused in my collection forever. I have never really used Sally Hansen nail polishes as I was stuck on using a few of my other go to brands.

 With that being said, I am so glad that I decided to use this nail polish.  I must say I am loving yes LOVING this nail polish and the color. The nail polish goes on so smooth, it dries so quick, and it is very inexpensive,  I mean what’s not to love about that. This Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish is the business *in my Wendy Williams voice*.

Just thought I would share, have  a Fabulous Saturday!
