 Snippets from my book; Your Roots Are Showing



The journey of self-acceptance, self-love, has allowed me to share my truth with you. Each of us has our own ‘rock bottom’ (our story), our defining moment of courage. Never give up your respect, your dignity or your self-worth & value.


As women we are challenged every day with choices. The question is what will you do as you face each one of them. Some of these challenges will test our bravery, strength, limitations, and beliefs. Along the way, we will stumble upon obstacles that lead us in a different direction; sometimes these hurdles are really a blessing in disguise (only we don’t realize that at the time). We must be brave enough to stand ‘rooted’ in the wisdom that there are no accidents and that everything is exactly as it should be. Today, I live in the moment. Every circumstance or situation is an opportunity to grow and learn, a chance to recognize our worth.

We all come in different shapes, sizes and color. That is the beauty of life; we are all individuals (unique). Be your own kind of beautiful. Never be ashamed of who you are, and where you have been. Be proud. Be different. Be bold. Be adventurous!
The moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens.   

 Don’t give up.

(When life hand you lemon…make Limón cello) yum!

IT IS A CHOICE...


"I choose to live by choice, not by chance to be motivated, not manipulated to be useful, not used to make changes, not excuses to excel, not compete I choose self-esteem, not self pity I choose to listen to my inner voice, not to the random opinion of others."

HAPPY NEW YEAR...CHEERS TO 2015

"May you find serenity and tranquility in a world
You may not always understand.
May the pain you have known and conflict you have experienced
Give you the strength to walk through life
Facing each new situation with courage and optimism.
Always know that there are those whose love and understanding
Will always be there, even when you feel most alone.
May you discover enough goodness in others
To believe in a world of peace.
May a kind word, a reassuring touch, a warm smile be yours
Every day of your life,
And may you give these gifts as well as receive them.
Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.
Teach love to those who know hate,
And let that love embrace you as you go into the world.
May the teaching of those you admire become part of you,
So that you may call upon them.
Remember, those whose lives you have touched
And who have touched yours are always a part of you,
Even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter that is more important than it's
form.
May you not become too concerned with material matters,
But instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart.
Find time in each day to see the beauty and love in the world around
you.
Realize that each person has limitless abilities,
But each of us is different in our own way.
What you may feel you lack in one regard
May be more than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present
May become one of your strengths in the future.
May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility.
Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strength to determine your own worth by
yourself,
And not be dependent on another's judgment of your accomplishments.
May you always feel loved."

Giving back does not always have to be money, it can be; your time, kindness, listening, a hug, music...it's caring enough to do something.  #imaginedragons   #humanity
