Learning More About Me with Mazda CX-9

Towards the end of last year, I decided a trip to Houston, TX was in order. I hadn’t been there in over 20 years so I knew the Houston that I once knew was a thing of the past. My friends at DriveShop let me borrow a SWEEEEEEEEEEET 2016 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring and I was on my adventure. I thought that I was going to the city to just learn more about the area, but I ended up learning some things about myself as well.

A. There are times when my almost 15 year old works my very last nerve, but I realize it is because seeing him is the boy version of me. He is indeed his momma’s child. Our personalities are similar, our temper, our passions, our lack of patience, and our need to question everything are almost identical. It’s like living with another me and that’s not fun at times.

On the days that I want to choke the life out of him I have to step back and think about what would be going on in my head if I were in his situation. I have to turn on the compassion at times and allow grace to come in. This is an ongoing adventure with him, and although I get frustrated and tired at times, I wouldn’t trade him in for anything. Y’all remind me of this next time you hear me fussing about him.

B. I’m an introvert with extrovert ways. In addition to the kiddo, my two friends Desiree and Alysia joined me on this Houston adventure. This trip truly showed me how much I need and thrive on my alone time. At times when we were all together, I felt myself being overwhelmed. There were so many voices including my own so there were times where I needed to be by myself and be silent to regroup. After a little while, I was fine and ready to get back in the swing of things. I’ve always suspected that I was an introvert and I’m positive of it now.

C. I need to relax and enjoy the moment at times. I know some of you are reading that and saying “What?! You hang out for a living. What do you mean you need to relax?” Sure my pictures show me enjoying food, travel, drinks, events, and my friends, but in the moment of capturing these events, I’m all serious and uptight. If the slightest bit of thing doesn’t go the way I think it should, I have a problem. My anxiety levels go to 100, my face gets screwed up, and it’s not good. During several moments of this trip, I just had to sit back, relax, and realize it will be what it will be.

D. I’m deeply flawed AND fabulous. With all of my “issues” and flaws, I’m still absolutely fabulous and so are you! A lot of times, we can get so deep in our heads that all we can do is point out the negatives. I’m guilty of it myself, but I am now intentionally practicing what I preach. The name of this blog “Loving This Life!” came from that idea. I have told you all before that my blog is named as a wink and nod to my sister Kimberly. After some rough years of life, Kim decided that instead of worrying about the negatives that were going on, she was going to love this life. Anytime something great would happen, no matter how big or small, she would say “I’m loving this life”. When I decided to create this blog, Loving This Life! was a natural fit. Despite a bad moment or flaw, we are all still fabulous!

E. The Mazda 2016 CX-9 Grand Touring All Wheel Drive is one of the prettiest cars I have seen in a while. Everywhere we went, someone commented on how pretty the car was. Not only was it pretty, it was a great smooth ride. I know this particular thing isn’t about me, but this post is about my adventures in this car. The only optional feature this car had was the paint color. Everything else was standard to the grand touring edition.
