Good Friday 2022

I remember days when I used to pray to not wake up. I’d cry myself to sleep, hoping that the weight of the world would be lifted from what I believed to be a miserable life -until my faith was restored.
It took going through a lot of pain, slaying mental dragons, making peace with my past to be able to stand in who I am, to accept it and know that the only thing I can strive for is to do better.
Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I choose joy, happiness, kindness, love. To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
“Good Friday is not about us trying to “get right with God.” It is about us entering the difference between God and humanity and just touching it for a moment. Touching the shimmering sadness of humanity’s insistence that we can be our own gods, that we can be pure and all-powerful.” Nadia Bolz-Weber

Started the Week by Taking My Own Advice

Faith is the result of grace. It is His grace that conquers a multitude of flaws and in that grace, there is only favor. Favor is not achieved; favor is received.

Walking On A Dream: From LA to San Francisco to Palms Springs

I’m not going to say that I’m living my best life simply because I’ve worked so very hard for all of this (more still yet to do) I will say that I am blessed with an amazing, supportive husband + children who understand the sacrifices we all make to feed the dream of this incredible life + businesses I get to call mine ✨ I am headed home with a full heart, rested, + having pursued even further opportunities that not only fuel my businesses, but my soul 🥹

Did you know that all things are created twice?

First in the mind, then in physical form.

Make a conscious effort to visualize who you are and what you want in life.

When I’m asked what’s the secret to manifesting? My answer is simple:

1. My unwavering Faith.
2. Over the years I’ve developed the habit of vision. You begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction + destination. You begin with the end in mind.

Got it? Now go get it 💪🏽 Happy Monday Chicas ☀️

FINALLY! BELLA Latina Magazine🥂

I’ll start by saying that you don’t scale or grow alone. If you’re lucky enough to find people who are as passionate as you are about what you do + are as willing to believe in you sometimes even more than you do in yourself, then you’ve truly won ❤️

@bellalatinamag has been a dream of mine for 9 years, and you @thisisjcali over the past 2 years have walked along with me through the fire that has been getting to this moment, right here 🥰 I love + appreciate you so much, thank you for all you do (while looking so damn FABULOUS) to get US to this very moment 🥂 WE did it 💪🏽

🇩🇴

Comenzaré diciendo que no escalas ni creces solo. Si tienes la suerte de encontrar personas tan apasionadas como tú en lo que haces y que están tan dispuestas a creer en ti a veces más de lo que crees en ti mismo, entonces realmente has ganado ❤️

@bellalatinamag ha sido un sueño mío durante 9 años, + tú @thisisjcali durante los últimos 2 años has caminado conmigo a través del fuego que ha sido llegar a justo este momento -aquí estamos ✨ te aprecio mucho, gracias por todo lo que haces, mientras te ves tan FABULOSO 🥂 LO LOGRAMOS 💪🏽
