::Women Empowerment Series:: #HoustonLatinas


Last year I had a vision to start a new series and that I would continue to add to it. The series. Empowering. Women. Women within our community. Learning from them and interacting with them. Just this month, I attended an event and was so happy to meet some amazing new local ladies. 

I then posed a similar question to them:

What does Women Empowerment mean to you?

I am always so fascinated to listen and grow from every word people tell me or send me.

::Life Lately:: Silence is Golden...

It's been quiet here lately. I have lots going on. Very little down time. New projects on the brain. My focus is to unfocus and some how it's brought me 360. My blog is very important to me.

But, sometimes.

Life takes over.

Life becomes difficult.

Some days I have to dig deep. Be reminded that love, support and blessings come from those nearest to my heart. My family. They are everything. They love us. They support us. They know how to be blessings.

I am human. I do allow life to overwhelm me. To take over me. To get me down. Then I seek. Deep in my heart, somewhere out in my soul and high towards the sky.

Suddenly. Love. Life. Smiles. Family. They overcome. They overwhelm my heart with goodness and I am once more reminded. I have nothing to fear. I should be inspired and motivated. I should rise above and DO everything I feel that I can do. Because it's possible. It's doable.

I am blessed.

Let me count the ways.
