Just another journey of a girl

Theresa. 22. Formerly a USMC girlfriend and military support blog, now I support myself. This blog is about my new journey into the new places in my life and all of the thigns that move me there every day. My story is a long one, it's a special one, but it's not a unique one. Girls get their dreams lit on fire right in front of them every day. I'm just another one learning the ways to put out the flames.
Where else can you find hundreds of people at a famous cemetery outside picnicking and drinking wine and champagne out of olastic cups while watching a Marilyn Monroe movie? My guess is nowhere ❤️ #HollywoodCemetery #OutdoorMovie #LosAngeles #Fun #Love #HappySaturday #LoveThisCity (at Cinespia @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery)

#flashbackfriday to nearly a year ago in Jersey! Doing this on California beaches these days. No matter where you are in the world, you take you with you. Thankful to have brought the balance I found on the east coast all the way out west. I do yoga more for myself lately than for my iPhone and sharing like I did back then (which was admittedly a bit ego centered, and  I have learned it’s not what the practice is TRULY about), but I think I’ll start posting some new stuff soon to share some exciting progress that’s been happening this last year 😊 It’s all about balance anyway. I’ve learned that WHY you do anything is just as important as the result that comes afterwards. Thankful for this practice and what is has brought me, and what it’s allowed for me to discover about myself on this side of the world and beyond. Oh, and whatever you do, do it for you. There’s always gonna be a critic. If they’ve somehow managed to make it their mission to be negative about life choices that don’t reflect their own, don’t aid that mission by allowing it to spread it into your own heart. Let them love with that, and instead be an example of fearless freedom. Do you, because you rock ✌️ #yoga #beachyoga #yogaeverydamnday #doyou #fearlessly #behappy #beyourself #bepositive #andallthatjazz  (at the whole damn world )

So … The birthday plan was - 2 yoga classes, dinner, and a movie. It turns out I only went to one class (because I went to eat a vegan cupcake instead) followed by dinner at #CafeGratitude with @lux_marotta and @frankhenchusa. Well, we ate so much that instead of wanting to go to the movie, we went home and played Mario Party all night. Probably one of the funniest, happiest and joy filled birthdays I have ever had. Case in point, this picture. Literally couldn’t stop laughing. Thank you all for the amazing birthday wishes! 24 is going to be the best year yet 🙌 #Birthday #AllSmiles #Happy #Grateful #WhatALovelyNight #ILostMarioParty #BTW (at Cafe Gratitude L.A.)

Probably the most hilarious is all of the birthday messages I save received today. I love you @alyyoungmoney !!! And although I’ll be doing absolutely nothing on this list (and although no one can ever understand what “Zilla” means) this birthday is definitely going to kick ass. Here’s to will sure be an amazing year ahead! Feeling 24444  😜 #birthday #soblessed #bestfriends #anothertriparoundthesun #feelingsograteful #thankyou

I don’t know why but I love traveling solo. And I secretly get excited when my plane gets delayed. Maybe it’s getting to people watch longer or listen to my favorite pandora station for longer. Maybe it’s the fact that the bartender gave me a double shot of gin and tonic because my birthday is in a few days. Maybe it’s all of these things combined with a great book. Happiness and gratitude are overflowing within me lately. Life is a weird adventure but this year sure has been a beautiful one. Back to LA!

If you are wondering why my hands are blurry, it’s because I’m so happy what #TheSortingHat on the #WarnerBrothersTour sorted me into #Gryffindor. I was THAT happy 😍 #HarryPotter #Tourist #ForTheDay #ClapAlongIfYouFeelLikeHappinessIsTheTruth #Happy #YoureAWizardHarry (at Warner Brothers Studios)
