In this course of commuting, every day, I’d see hundreds of people, some 30-40 random faces

I think life– a year ago was mostly about walking. Going on and on and on, to the next thing. When a day had events and life, all of it, seemed to be moving. Literally, a phase about being in making and breaking. That nice beautiful road in the gif that I walked every day, mostly alone and sometimes in company of friendly faces led me to the station where I’d again see hundreds of people, loaded in coaches, taking a journey to different destinations, from the same place I stood at. Same happy, sad, tired, dreamy, sleepy random faces. Some familiar faces with different expressions, every day. Amongst all these faces, to me, mine felt like a kid’s. Moving from relatively a smaller city to a big one and then to a bigger one, most of my time while commuting was spent observing. And when my day concluded, I’d come back home, sit and talk to myself how it is not the life I dream to live.

Remember — you have not felt it all (the world still has so much left for you)

Keywords: {0}

Trust that some of the best days of your life haven’t even happened yet. There are going to be parties that leave you dancing until 6am, spontaneous adventures that teach you more than you ever learned in a classroom. There are going to be nights that will stay burned beneath your eyelids, memories that dance underneath your skin. Life is going to exceed your expectations, it is going to astonish you with its timing.

I like the middle, the in between, the part after the beginning and before the end

And writing feels like life. The more I learn about life, the more I realize the most important feeling is the feeling of connection: connection to spirit, connection to humanity, connection to nature, connection to the universe, and connection to God/Source. And putting words on a page helps me feel connected.

I want this space to be a place I can look back on with fond memories

I don’t exactly have a full-time job at the moment – I can’t find one. And the cherry of the cake – I don’t need to study. I thought about what I liked, and what I wanted to do with all this free time. I wanted to document and share experiences through my own perspectives. A camera and a pair of shoes – really all I need. And what better time to start on this then now? Life doesn’t wait for anyone.

So, who is Ale Chamorro, what makes her tick and why am I presenting myself in the third person

If you’re still here, great!! In this blog you will read about some experiences I have gone through since I graduated, situations I’m currently going through and maybe stories that are a good laugh or a good cry. Who knows, I’m just going with the flow.

WAHM: Expectation Vs. Reality

featured , Motherhood

Keep Thriving Mommy

I envied moms who could stay at home with their babies. So when the opportunity came for a work at home job for me, I felt that it was an excellent opportunity for me to finally shift from the corporate world and create what I felt was my ideal life. The bonus part was I am still able to contribute to our family financially and don’t give up my career, all while caring for our daughter.

The expectation was high, and I’d picture myself playing with my daughter all the time. Being present to all her milestones. All day every day, I get to be there for nap time, bath time, meal time, and more play time. Home cooked meal. Organized and clean house. I got to sleep extra hours because I don’t have to get up way earlier to commute because of the damn traffic.

More time on almost…

I won’t apologise for being me

Kiss of Beth

“Young blood, came to start a riot
Don’t care what your old man say
Young blood, heaven hate a sinner
But we gonna raise hell anyway”

Raise Hell – Dorothy

Welcome back.

Thanks for sticking with me while I took some time off to re-group. I’m now going to explain why I felt like I had to.

Recently someone who should support me no matter what, tore into this blog and my character. Calling me and my writing fake. Calling me and my writing attention seeking and assuring me that everyone agreed. They even went so far as to question if my mental health problem was even real and if I was doing it just for reads.

This shook me and my confidence in my blog. I wont lie about it. I doubted myself and my pieces. I sat here and cried about the fact that someone who should love…

Trauma & Excessive Commas

Eyeyotee

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.” ~ Mister Rogers

Honestly, I don’t feel like doing anything today – a case of what the great Dana Carvey calls “the fuck its”. But, alas, I must go to work, where, as always, I will have fun. Now, do ya think I used too many commas in that last sentence? I’ll just say that there’s not a lot of room for more. I was trying to be frugal, but I stand by my punctuation. So, moving forward. I saw an old friend yesterday, at work, just as my shift was beginning. I’ve known her for 24 years – she was my first…
