The Author behind “Bonnie”
I’ve always wanted to start a lifestyle and travel blog for the last three years. All talk and no action until today. It’s a Bonnie Thing website is now up.
“Who wants to read what I have to say?”
“What if I suck at writing?”
My journal was filled with all the things I would do if I weren’t afraid to fail.
I had BIG dreams & crazy ideas
It felt inspiring!
The more I believed in myself, The more I pushed myself physically and mentally, the more I went out of my comfort zone, I felt empowered. Those impossible dreams started to become a reality.
Crazy things I did
I started to work out and pushed myself to run! I hate running!
Jumped in the water with Lemon sharks bigger than me in Bora Bora
Sailed in the San Diego Bay during Santa Ana winds couldn’t wait to get off that small boat!
Built and designed a home with our architect and builder
Started a Blog
Things I learned
The more you push yourself, love yourself, embrace who you are, and believe in yourself…
” I can star as the Princess in my own Fairytale” I own the power to create my Fairytale life and write my happy ending!”
So what if my writing sucks? What if no one reads my blog? It’s ok. At last, I am doing something I have always dreamed of doing.
I have a lot of content to write, much to learn, and mistakes to make. If I fail that is fine too, I will not have regrets. I’ve learned that failing can be a positive thing. It means I am going after everything I have always wanted in life.
“People may say I can’t sing, but no one can say I didn’t sing.”
Florence Foster Jenkins
Just like Florence, people may say my writing sucked but no one can say I didn’t write.
It feels good to pursue my crazy dreams and writing my own happily ever after. My purpose is to share the beauty in the world and put more positivity in the Universe. If I can make one person smile, wear a tiara, or inspire someone to see a new destination in the world, I have succeeded.
We weren’t born to perfect. We were each born with different passions and uniqueness. My husband calls me Abby Normal and I am not everyone’s cup of tea. I love to celebrate people for their individuality. In our imperfections lies the beauty of being human. It’s a beautiful thing when you embrace yourself, that is when the magic happens!
Bonnie is a character that was created to be the girl I always wished to be. She is always positive, fun, and living life full of passion and to the fullest. Every moment counts in Bonnie’s life. She loves to dance, sing, travel the world, make people laugh, entertain, and dress in costumes and wigs. This blog is part biography with a theatrical flair. After all, I was a theater girl.
Life isn’t always easy. We learn to escape through nature, vacations, books, and movies. Art gives us a creative outlet and makes the world a better place to live. Who says you have to live in the real world? Create the real world you wish to live in.
When people ask you what you do for a living, say, “I LIVE!”
We only have one life to live. Make your life worth living! We all have hardship and negativity can drag us down. It’s when we focus on the positive and realize all the bad things were life lessons to be learned and make us stronger. We learn compassion and forgiveness in our hardships. Some things we thought were bad led us to a different direction or new path. Live a life without judging others and when you feel judged don’t take it personally.
