My Mom is the most calm natured, good hearted person I have ever met. She truly is content with what she has and where she’s at in life. She also has the most beautiful soul that’s very aware of others who surround her. Not only that, but she always makes me Thai ice tea, coffee, and feeds me plenty when I visit her in CA. She lives in W. Minister in little Vietnam. Usually, we’ll go out to eat when I see her and then walk around a few malls. We both love to window shop and just walk around. Sure, if we find something, we’ll buy it, but we usually enjoy catching up while on a material stroll
My Mother has very light, olive skin. Much lighter than my natural tanned glow. She also has long, black and wavy hair. I have naturally straight hair. We share the same eyes, nose, and lips. I get my darker features from my Dad and his height. My Mom is kind of tall for an Asian woman. She’s also very curvy with natural D bosoms! I had to buy mine, lol. Sometimes, you can find us at the movies or even in little vietnam in CA, walking through the little shop booths. If so, I may have an arm around my Mom leading her to walk faster since she lives life at a very slow pace. That’s one thing in particular that I find special about her. I adore the fact that she truly lives life. She drives slower, walks slower, and even talks more calmly and softly than other people. She stops to smell the roses and in return, appreciates life a lot more than letting it slip through her fingers. I, on the other hand, do everything in a fast paced. To me, there’s not enough time in the day, but when I’m with my Mom, I’m forced to slow down because she doesn’t know the definition of “rushing.”
Did you know that I hired a life coach once? I hired him for 2 months to work on myself last year. I was really stressed and confused at one point of my life and wanted someone to convert my energy into something positive and meaningful. I wanted to be completely honest with someone. I didn’t feel like I could tell my Mom or closest friends things about me because they would worry, so I hired someone to confide to that wasn’t closely associated to me. It was one of the best investments I could make during that time and he helped me a lot. Basically, one of the things we worked on was to slow down and take in everything I was doing. Often, I found myself doing things and not realizing the consequences of my actions until afterwards. So he helped me to re-evaluate, think., and breath He also got me into yoga, which is a soft form of meditation for me. And I also learned to give myself some credit…to not beat myself up about things because in reality, I’m a good person and treat others well, too. Kind of like that saying, you have to love yourself first before you can love others.
So why am I telling you all this? Because I’m fortunate to have good natured people around me whom I can learn from and who live a life that I strive for everyday. I can only hope you have some people like that in your life, too. It’s good to have the right people walk the walk, and be a good example for you. Some people have asked me what my Mom thinks about my modeling career? To be honest, she wishes I was doing something else. No Mother wants to see her daughter naked on the net, but she accepts me for it and knows that I’m smart about it. She trusts me and my judgements so she has never, and would never say or do anything to make me feel bad about it. That’s why I love her and respect her so much. I’m grateful to have such a loving and understanding Mother, and it also helps me to take pride in what I do because I know she’s standing behind me every step of the way.
