Some Practical Tips that have helped me through Life ✍️

1. Let Go of the past…Seriously tho, you are not your past nor your mistakes..Forgive people and forgive yourself…Make peace with the fact that some people, places and things are only holding you back.Learn to let go gracefully..You’re only making room for better things..That right there is True Freedom!
2. Take Risks! I mean how many times have you been given an opportunity & you stopped yourself for whatever reason?…I bet the answer is many times..Learn to jump and figure the rest out later..Sometimes it’s now or never..So Go for it!
3. Show Up and Be on time! (Ok the second part I’m still working on if I’m completely honest 🤦🏻‍♀️ ) Showing up tho & giving everything your best shot..That’s the ultimate feeling
4. Don’t listen to what others say..I’ve learned people will always have an “Opinion” be negative or tell you what to with your life…Now don’t get me wrong, good feedback or constructive criticism is great but Don’t listen to the Naysayers..Trust me on this one, If I listened to them I wouldn’t have gone anywhere in Life..This is your journey and yours alone.. You are responsible for your outcomes, Make sure you’re writing Your Greatest story!
5. Be whatever you are..If you’re weird be weird!( simple as that)  Be unapologetic about these things. I think I’m very Unique & far from typical (sometimes a little too silly & I laugh way too much when I shouldn’t )but I kinda Love it! Be yourself & Be okay with that! Own your personality, Own your flaws Just own it & all of it!
6. Don’t try to impress others! ..Some will love you no matter what & others won’t…It’s Life…That’s why it’s so Important to watch your Company..You are the people you are around..The right people will support you, lift you up, will be there through good and bad, tell you the truth even when you don’t want to hear it and be there to celebrate with you of course!
7. For everything there is a Time and A Season, so don’t rush things…I’m a firm believer in timing…The right time will create the right opportunities..Be patient some things will be worth the wait
8. Be Kind everyone is battling something…Listen I know I have my days I wish no one would talk to me & the last thing I want to do is engage in conversation…However “kindness is everything ” & I don’t say it loosely..We all have our struggles, some of us just hide them better..When we are ok with those things we can actually work on them and they don’t own us…So it’s Definitely Ok not to have it all together all the time..In fact I think it’s healthy to lose yourself here and there so you can reconstruct from the bottom( the only way is up) ..Do things wiser 🙌🏼
9. Be the first to Smile, to talk to someone, to start a conversation, be bold.You never know what that can lead you to.That person may very well be your next boss, best friend,next business partner, special someone etc. You really never know trust me some of the best people I’ve met in life have been because I took the initiative!

Our Scars

E3348CAE-919D-4A0E-BF08-8BFCD7A0A90A

Our scars they shape us, they teach us, they break us & sometimes repair us, they are carried well within us…Some of us are built tougher than others but we all have them..Some of our scars remind us of tragic events while others are bittersweet bringing back certain thoughts or memories..Yet these scars in my personal opinion are Crucial in life for growth & development and of course for Good Ole Learning. I am one to believe we must embrace pain & learn to cope as everything in life is a balance of both Good and Bad…So maybe our Scars they aren’t so bad after all…They are there, implanted in our brains.At times they give us hope (depending on the circumstance) At Times they may paralyze us due to a prior events that may have ended in the wrong direction.Whatever the outcome, Scars I️ do love them. You see because just like these pages they are written inside each of us painted into our souls.Somehow these scars are made Beautiful, They are deep & well put into us..There is something so perfect about these Scars, They tell a story and just like finger prints no two scars are ever the same..Each one carries its individual impact..If you ask me to be honest I’d be the first to admit, I’m actually proud of all my scars!They remind me how strong & resilient I️ can be.I’m reminded how some battles are won and some not so much nevertheless  I’m reminded of My Scars &  they’re Beautiful! 💪🏼❤️✨A736D485-7943-4E99-8CA2-350A0FB36505 ❤️💪🏼✨

This Experiment called “Life”

948DF8C9-DBFF-41D4-84FC-46324E2079ADThe best way I can describe Life is… it’s one ” Big Experiment” A constant journey of growth and never ending learning.Some days we are so High on life & some days we look like The Grinch who stole Christmas haha (yes we all have our days)Will we be making mistakes? I say, Absolutely! I really hope we are making them and lots of them because if we aren’t, are we even Living? Or just getting by or even worse being Stagnant…Staying in one place letting our fears take over…Now let me clarify in no way, shape or form am I telling you to be reckless with your life but what I am saying is I hope that when you do have a chance you take a New opportunity you take it without the fear of failing, I believe the only way we can really fail is by never trying anything…So I hope that you take this one life that you’re given and experience it, savor it, cherish it and Live as best as possible! I hope that Fear is not your strong hold to keep you prisoner of somewhere you shouldn’t be…I hope that you look back someday with A Big Smile knowing that you really LIVED! And “Lived a Great Story “👍

Shifting into a better ME!

9FAAF52C-3CC4-4888-9A0B-5F3A1EBC1DBAOver the last year I’ve began to shift into a Happier, More fulfilling & Definitely much better place in Life. I think I’ve changed so much in the last year and have grown so much ( not literally I’m still a little shorty haha ) So I feel it’s only right to share & hopefully help others who are on the same or similar path in Life.. Life is tasting better & the great thing is others are getting a better version of Me as well…Writing to me has always been both a passion of Mine and Outlet & Lately also a way of helping others…With that being Said I’ve decided to start this Journey of blogging & sharing My thoughts and parts of My story…I Hope that you guys will be able to relate, laugh a little ( very important to always laugh even thru the hardships) and of course Learn from my bits of pieces of What I like to call my Own little “Words of Wisdom”. A Little background about Me & Some Fun Facts : I was born and raised in New Jersey but living in Sunny FL these days…My parents are from Lovely Cuba & Beautiful Ecuador, which makes me A Proud Latina! I was blessed with some pretty strict but awesome parentals & thanks to them I speak Spanish fluently & was introduced to some pretty amazing food and some Cuban coffee that will literally have me flying all day.”Cafecito is Life “these days especially when I need some extra power haha…Okay Okay here we go back to “Business” You will most likely find me being a workaholic, been doing it since 14 yrs old.. Currently I’m working in the medical field while pursuing a few other personal goals which I will share later.. You can also find me either being a Foodie & trying new restaurants or cheffing it up in my kitchen.. On Weekends you can find me at church, My faith is BIG to Me & part of the reason I am where I am…You may also find me volunteering giving back which has also become a Big part of Me, Exploring a New Place & what it has to offer or at Some Cool Seminar learning.. I Love Learning! Which brings me to being such a Gyspy Soul.. Yes I’m very much a traveler, and I really enjoy Taking trips to new places enjoying the culture and people etc. so You may bump into me at the airport or in a plane haha ( just kidding okay maybe not, it’s actually happened before) You can find me either running or attempting to be a runner or at the gym ( it’s literally my De-stresser)
Where else can you find Me? Hmmm At the beach either napping ( ahh the simplicities of life) or taking in either a beautiful sunset or sunrise…Not sure which I love most…Writing by the sea is my place of Tranquility and that’s where my mind is most at ease so my thoughts become words & my words become part of My story on paper….I would say last but not least you can find me sitting for minutes that sometimes turn into hours of talking to people.It ranges  from my very best friends/family members/coworkers to complete strangers about Life experiences and most times it will turn into some very stimulating conversations ( these of course are My personal favorite) Giving them some very honest or  practical advice, making them laugh or helping them plan when they are in a Funk…I’ve been called the “The Positive Fairy” & have been asked “Why are you always so happy”? I strongly disliked it at first but now I see it’s part of Me & I want to embrace it & this is one of the many reasons I’ve decided to make this Blog a reality…So I Welcome you, sit back, enjoy, grab a coffee or drink of choice & follow Me thru My Journey of Words! May my words Inspire you, fill you with Hope & Make you want to try again!
