Bob Moorehead Wrote This

by Aidee on January 23, 2014

“The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more,
but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and
smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees
but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more
problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our
possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and
hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to
life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but
have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer
space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom,
but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but
accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more
computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we
communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but
broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway
morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything
from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the
showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can
bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share
this insight, or to just hit delete…

Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not
going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks
up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave
your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the
only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, “I love you” to your partner and your loved ones, but most
of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from
deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person might
not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to
share the precious thoughts in your mind.”

I miss you.

I was the type of person that would say something like “God has plan” when bad things happened, you know because no matter what happens there is always a solution.  But there is not a solution for death.  Now, I am here and it’s 4:00 in the morning and all I want to say is F*#! THAT PLAN and I want my friend  back. I am mad, and sad.

It hurts so much and I can’t stop crying.

I don’t care if my friend is now an angel. I don’t want an angel I want  my friend back.

I want you here now, with me. I want to be able to talk to you, to call you. I want to see your pictures on Instagram and your posts on Facebook. I don’t want to have this emptiness in my heart. This is not fair. I am not mad at anything. I am not mad at God either. Probably I am mad at myself for not doing more, for not calling you more, for not visiting you more, for not writing you more.

Never leave mad. Forgive. Don’t go to bed mad. Never ever forget to say I love you. Don’t forget to call. Choose peace. Put them first. Hug more. Say I am sorry. And go after your dreams. Life is short and seriously you only have the now. So enjoy the moment and smile.

I love you Priscila.

 

My Favorite Dip

by Aidee on August 14, 2012

A couple weeks ago Coe and I had a mini celebration for his birthday and my friend Julie brought one of the best vegan dishes I had in a while.  I mentioned it before on my last post.

Julie’s Epic Dip

3 cans of Green Giant Mexi-Corn (drained)
1 can of black beans (drained)
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (Julie used Daiya, but I didn’t use anything because I didn’t have any, and the dip was pretty good with out it)
1 bunch of green onions (chopped)
Jalapenos to taste (diced)

Mix all the above ingredients together and set aside (Use a large bowl)

In a separate bowl mix together

1 cup of vegenaise
2 cups of Vegan sour cream
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of cilantro
1 tsp of cumin
1 tsp lime/or lemon juice
1 tsp of cayenne pepper

Add the wet ingredients to the corn and bean mixture and refrigerate for
about 4 hours or even overnight. Serve with Fritos or tortilla chips.

Vacation is Over

by Aidee on August 14, 2012

I am back from from my vacay, I am a bit tired from it, but over all feeling very inspired and ready to rock the worlds. I went to Mexico for 9 unexpected days and then came back home for a couple of days, literally I was back home for two and half days and then left again to meet for the first time the California state.

There is so much energy and inspiration that I feel. I am now just praying and asking God for guidence to make the right decisions on my life.

3 Things To Cheer For

by Aidee on July 24, 2012

1. Friends. This one is a given. I have always surround myself with people that have great energy. Usually, it is hard for a girl that has moved a lot, like me, to find good peeps, but I’ve been extremely lucky with this because everywhere I go there has always been amazing people. People that inspired me and respect my ideas and who I am, and encourage my dreams with love and honesty. 

{yes, we order those}

2. Birthdays. Well my husband’s birthday is today. And I usually don’t like my birthday. But I am starting to actually embrace it and just love it. He received so much love from everybody; family and friends. It has been just so great to see so much love around him.

{6:00 am this morning. Happy Birthday Babe}

{last month celebrating their birthday. Grandpa & brother-in-law}

3.  And unexpected dip. So we had a mini celebration for Coe’s birthday and one of my girlfriends made this amazing vegan dip. So tasty, and the best part of course it was that it was Vegan. I will have the recipe soon.
