I can only chase you in my thoughts
I've come far enough towards the ledge for you
I would gladly take the leap if told me to

I followed you like an adoring puppy
And now I've hit a wall of emptiness
I don't know what hurts more...
knowing you won't let me in
thinking I was nothing, nothing at all
friendship wasn't even on the table 

My heart still hurts.

Mis anhelos de cada dia

Tu mirada me hypnotiza
Tu sonrisa me deshace
Tu silencio me quiebra el alma

Sueño con la possibilidad y esperanza de ser parte de tu vida.
Poder tener tan solo un rincón en tu corazón
y que me digas, yo también te quiero.

Today was a good day.

I am thankful to be alive, to have my health, to have my family to have joy. Sometimes I feel guilty, seeing people around the world not having the opportunities I am lucky to take advantage of. I remind myself I have a purpose. Today I was able to take another step closer towards the goals I've set my mind to. Thank you, God.

All in my mind, all in my heart.

I have to stop
I'm torturing myself
It could have been all in my imagination
the feeling I felt
the feelings I feel
that so called connection

I have to stop
I'm torturing my heart
Could this just be a silly infatuation?
the feelings I felt 
the feelings I feel
it's a serious cry of desperation

I have to stop
I'm wrecking my mind
with my constant interrogation
the feelings I felt
the feelings I feel
It's all a delirious situation

Please let it stop
Answer me now
give me the information
the feelings I felt 
the feelings I feel
should I continue being patient?

Fallen dreams once inspired. They refuse to float and raise hope within. The fire of youth has grown tired and almost faded. Only motivation can reignite and make the flame ardor stronger. We are lost souls looking for the answer to give cause to our fire, to give breath to our passion and direction to our talents.

One of my resolutions for this year is to walk more. I have a goal to walk in the evenings at least 3 times a weeks minimum of 15 minutes each walk. This will do both Rocks and I much good health wise. Today was a bit cold and rainy but I still felt the motivation to get out. We have the cold gear and looks like Rocks enjoyed it.

My dearest beloved dog Charlie passed away this Friday. I still have much heart-ache. I will miss him greatly.

When I was going through my pictures I came across this blog that I have forgotten to add anything into for years. I came across many posts of Charlie and pictures throughout the years. This was such a great find in my time of need and desire to consume all the memories of my eldest fur-kid. Because of this I have proposed myself to write more and do more blog post.

 You are welcome to stop by and read up on the original intent of this blog which sub-title I have not changed since first creating this blog... " Ramblings of the day and ongoing written gibberish from Araceli Arroyo" I will more than likely include pics of my other dogs so I can continue to preserve our memories. Thank you for visiting.
Note to self: Stay strong and fear not the feelings in your heart. Give voice to those thoughts and emotions that you tend to suppress in your heart.

Oscar Picks

I entered many ballots, here is the latest..

I felt very conflicted on many of my picks for who I thought should win and who I thought would get selected to win.

Best Picture - I was most entertained with American Hustle and also thought directing of all the various actors was a great undertaking in it of itself - But I think Best Director will go to Martin Scorsese for Wolf of Wall Street.

Best Actor I was torn between Bale and McConaughey - I think they will give it to Matthew McConaughey

Best Actress, was toughest choice for me for different reasons. Sandra Bullock held the entire picture practically by herself. For most of the film it was only her character that had to maintain the suspense and entertainment of the film, Bullock did a great job to do so.  Blanchett was great at playing neurotic troubled woman, but found the character role itself predictable on only on two gears - crazy or numb, with no in-between emotions. I think who should win is Meryl Streep.  I know she was won many already, but she does an excellent job at choosing meaty roles.  She is un recognizable and raw in August Osage County - I think they will give it to Cate Blanchett.

Supporting Actress - I was surprised at Roberts performance and am satisfied with getting an Oscar nomination. Lawrence was great but not enough for an Oscar this year.  Squibb stole the movie in Nebraska but the wining performance should and will probably go to Lupita Nyong'o.

Supporting Actor - Great performances for all the nominees.  This was another I was very conflicted with.  New comer Barkhad Abdi is amazing, Hill captured the character perfectly, Cooper was crazy, Fassbender plays a cruel soul like no other but I believe Jared Leto will win for his excellent rendition of Rayon, his character in Dallas Buyers club.
