Donde Pertence

Lo Echo, Echo esta.

Donde Pertence

Don’t look back––what is done is done.

Lo Echo, Echo esta.

‘Crying until I can no longer cry

Calling your name out in the middle of nowhere

Will not bring you back alive

Or will not undo the past.'

El Pasado is El Pasado.

Twelve hours ago become history already.

Pounding on your past will not bring you anything back,

But cloud your mind on unwanted, unneeded-emotions-thoughts:

On what could of, what would of,

Or what should of––been.

This brings you nothing new to the creation of your presence

And or future awaiting you.

I am not saying that El Pasado is not valuable or not a learning experience;

Take what you want from it:

The experiences gained, the learned lessons, the memories;

And move forward, solo para adelante.

Nadamas, don’t look back.

You can’t undo El Pasado:

You can’t disappear, you can’t undo, what happened;

Something that may have been out of your control.

Words said cannot be unsaid,

They cannot be taken back,

They could only continue to be created.

All that is left is that future,

A future,

Tu presencia esta garantizada.

Toma control ahora en adelante.

If you turn back,

You may not return,

Or may not continue,

Or may lose your path,

O pueda que te quedes atascada.

One day, un dia, in another world,

You will revisit, but not in this world.

Segue tu camino para adelante,

Deja todo lo demas en SU Pasado­––‘donde pertenece.’


Day by day,

Hour by hour,

Second by second.

These are the small steps moving us forward,


Nuestras metas,

Nuestros sueños.

Not that unknown future,

Pero nuestra presencia.

That presence predetermines our future:

If it exists,

O it’s just our imagination..


Of all the things you can tell your own self, what is one thing you would tell yourself?

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
