South Asia Flooding

Hurricane Harvey has caught so much attention and love. We are also forgetting that South Asia are also experiencing the worst flooding in decades, which have killed over thousands of people and displaced millions. An estimate of over 2 million people have been affected. The same concerns I have for Houston goes the same for South Asia, if not more.

I am sadden to see there aren’t many organizations/charities to help those in South Asia.

Here is an organization I personally found more reliable than others. If you can find more please feel free to contact me and I will add them in. 

Save the Children – South Asia Flood

 

Hurricane Harvey

During the weekend and this upcoming week, Texas was hit with Hurricane Harvey. Many left with no electricity, and billions of dollars worth of damages were sustained. Many families, and animals have lost their homes, and are struggling to evacuate. The strong winds and heavy rains from the hurricane have also impacted the Caribbean and Latin America.

I would advise not to donate to the American Red Cross.

Here’s why – Why we need new Humanitarian relief

Other organizations/charities you can donate too.

Save the Children

Houston Coalition for the Homeless

Houston Food Bank

You Caring

Best charities for Hurricane Harvey

There are a lot of things going on and happening in the world where we can lend a helping hand in various ways, no matter how big or small.  Please help spread awareness and help others who need it the most in this world.

 

 

 

Mayweather VS Mcgregor

Mayweather VS Mcgregor — Saturday, August 26th 2017 on PPV: What makes one a great fighter?

I wanted to talk about the fight, and also bring some light into what makes a someone a great fighter/athlete. I feel like a lot of people miss the fact that this whole fight is legendary, F*ck the money and the negative press. It’s about all the preparation, the work, drive, and dedication for this fight to happen. The risks, and challenges that have been made by both athletes and their team.

I am not a professional, but I am pretty knowledgeable about MMA, I do follow the sport more frequently than other sports. I took the time to do my research on both, sports, and athletes. Read up and watched on interviews, and press conferences. I asked you guys, my readers, your opinion on this fight and have also discussed more things way beyond this particular fight to help me reflect and generate a good piece for this topic (thank you all for your input) — but more along the lines of all the important attributes that make one a great fighter/athlete.

“The Notorious” Conor Mcgregor. 
29 years old.
From Dublin, Ireland
Reigning UFC Lightweight Champion, and former UFC Featherweight Champion.
21-3
Floyd “Money” Mayweather JR. 
40 years old.
From Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States.
12 time World Champion, 5 different weight classes
49-0
Maybe Conor should’ve stayed in his lane, stay fighting in his savage game and nothing more beyond that. You can’t deny his hard ambition, neither does Mayweather. Look where he’s guiding Mcgregor, to him. He’s challenging someone who hasn’t actually had much experience with Mayweather’s choice of combat sport, where he clearly specializes in. Conor is here training hard and pursuing this craft in order for this fight to happen for not only everyone who initiated this fight but for himself and his build up for greatness. They brought in two beautiful combat sports and two fighters who clearly have the same desire with different creativity and strategies that make themselves great. These two are very talented and legendary fighters. Mayweather has been through the pressure before, Just like Conor, and any other fighter. But, for 21 years? Here he is, past his time, still trying to conquer, and give it all he has for himself, his team, the fans, and most importantly, Mcgregor.  I don’t doubt Floyd, he’s great at what he does, I feel like we all know what Floyd is capable of. But with Conor, doubt never crosses my mind with him, or with this fight. He is a different level, and I feel like a lot of you don’t even know what Conor is capable of. Then again, at the end of the day, we’ll see on Saturday, August 26th. You will really see how all their training, and hard work shaped them into the great fighters that they are, and how It’ll play out for the both of them in the boxing ring.
Good luck to the two extraordinary fighters. I encourage everyone to order and watch the fight. Saturday night is going to be historical.

I am Team Mcgregor all the way. Win or lose.

“I’ve fought many fighters with different styles. There have been plenty of guys who talked a lot of trash, but when its all said and done, I came out victorious”

– Floyd Mayweather

“And when it’s all said and done, you know what? I’m gonna feel a little bit sad. Because you should have all kept your mouths shut. You should have left me over on that other game where I’m from, that more ruthless game where we bounce heads off the canvas and drill them into the floor. You should have left me where I was. Because this man is not on my level. He’s not even a quarter of the man I am. So, we’re gonna see, you’re all going to eat your words. ”

– Conor Mcgregor

Why I started a blog

First off, I would like to thank everyone for checking out my blog!

Thank you to those for your love, support, and kind words. I appreciate all of the love and great feedback I’m already getting in the beginning of it all!

I, of course, stated why I created this blog in my About me section. But I wanted to go more in depth with it to show you all my main reason’s and focus for my blog.

I’m a person who feels so deeply. I started writing to enhance my writing skills, but mainly to open up to myself about things I was afraid to open up to others and just let some steam off. I started to gain a passion for writing seeing how my thoughts, and experiences has helped others around me. I wanted to start one for the longest time, but of course had my doubts about it. Thanks to a really good friend of mine, I just went out and did it.

My writings involves pieces of my own knowledge, thoughts, opinions, experiences, and insights of the world. I believe we all at one point face the same feelings in all of our everyday challenge with life. I created this not only for me, but for others. To get in touch with them, touch base on REAL issues that we have going on in this world or any issues we all face personally. I did this in hopes that we can empower each other and be better for the world and ourselves.

Feel free to stick around and check up on my blog. I will notify whenever there is a new upcoming post! Leave me a message, ask for advice, questions, or chat with me!

I look forward to going on this venture with you guys! Thank you again for your love and support.

Love Yourself First

I struggled with self love for as long as I can remember, within my own demons, insecurities, and being mistreated constantly by others. Near the end of high school and to this day, I would believe is to be my biggest breakthrough with self love. I realized the only thing that matters is me, and that life is taking me wherever I need to be. Although I had struggled with self love, I always had confidence in me, I never let anything stop me from doing what I needed to or to voice what’s on my mind. My confidence has grown stronger and it opened up a lot of opportunities for me. For anyone who knows me, I LOVE myself. Working on myself has not only taught me to never settle less for what I want or deserve, and to be at peace with myself, but it taught me to fall in love with life, and showed me how to love others better. Of course I still have bad days.. but at the end of it all, tomorrow is a new day, and all you have is you, so be better for it. xx

Rocky Boy!

IMG_5322

This is my dog Rocky. 3 years old. I got him when I was in High school and he is the best thing that ever happened to me!

He is half Staffordshire Bull Terrier and half Portuguese Pointer. I was told he was a Boston Terrier, but, no. I knew that he wasn’t. He looks very intimidating, and can be territorial at first, but he’s the sweetest little thing. Rocky has so much personality. He is very hyper active, free, affectionate. He runs faster than a cheetah, I swear, he just flies right out when I open the door and doesn’t even stop there… He is a Mama’s boy for sure! Rocky would’ve been in a shelter if i haven’t had taken him and I don’t know what I would’ve done. I’m hoping in the near future I can adopt a bunch of beautiful soul’s that Rocky can be surrounded by and play with.

If you or someone you know is looking to take in a animal, I encourage you all to consider looking at your local SPCA, or other animal shelters or associations to adopt or contribute to their other services to give these animals the best life.
