MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 7-13, 2018.

We laid Maria to rest this week. It was one of the saddest moments of my life. So vibrant and so full of light. The one thing I can take away from this life event is reconnecting with relatives. Despite the tears and sadness, there was togetherness and hope.

I’m doing my best to not sweat the small things. I need to start looking at the bigger picture. Maria had a positive mindset! And she always took a chance. I want to start living that way. At times, I’m hesitant or too scared. You’ll never know if you don’t try.

I dedicate this post to Maria once again as well as her family. ❤

Family is not an important thing, it’s everything. -Michael J. Fox

There was a lot of reflection, processing, and crying this week. Grief is a part of life and everyone deals with it differently. Being with family during somber times is comforting.

Despite the sadness, I carried on with the rest of my week. We took Beari to the vet for her ultrasound, I finally rode one of the new Muni trains, and volunteered for another Growing Up Asian In America Ceremony at the Asian Art Museum. It’s always an empowering space.

This week was fun, but also very somber. Visiting my cousin in the hospital put a lot of things into perspective for me.

Coco celebrated her 17th doggy birthday, attended Beyoncé Mass, the Giants BEAT LA, and I got a cool hat (with a missing button, meh).

I dedicate this post to my beautiful cousin, Maria aka Marian. We miss you so much already. RIP. ❤

SPRING BREAK!!! 😀

What did I do all week? I slept in, stayed up, hung out, and kept up with my walking goals. I also volunteered. It was nice to have a week off.

I also went to the 51st Annual NCCBF (Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival) and reconnected with old friends. It was great! And the PHA Walk. YES!!
