Reset

Most of us probably survived the worst yet most rewarding year of our lives! Guess what, you have a new set of pages to write the most incredible story yet. Restart. Clear your mind and your heart. Seek everything you desire the best way you can. Never discredit your progress. Manifest it, write it down, for the universe will self-align to provide it for you. Recently, I’ve struggled with accepting the things I deserve and always thinking I have to “earn” them. We are deserving of all things because we fight for them. We exist. You. Are always capable of so much.

This year, I ask for calmness! I’m so used to stress. Always doing something and during the season of post-graduation and job searching I’ve had to practice patience and understanding that you do not always have to be “moving” to make progress! Be content as you are. Take a break, and reset. Align your goals, dreams, and aspirations. Stay true to yourself. Always! Make sure you prioritize your mental health, and your people, allow space for the new things to come.

May this year bring you all of the things you have always wanted. Wishing all of you inner peace, happiness, health, and growth. Be weird, and be extra bubbly for anything that is meant to stay will stay. You are seen. Strong and courageous. Let me tell you this, no two people are the same so stop comparing yourself and go be phenomenal. As always I’m rooting for you all!!!

To my inner child:

At 8 years old, I decided I wanted to learn sign language… I wanted to be an interpreter! Didn’t know how, when, or where. All my life I wanted inclusion. Power. Visibility to myself, always thought I need to be “walking” to have the things I pick up on the daily. Against all odds, the times I cried myself to sleep. The days I hated my physical appearance and everything else under the sun. I knew I’d die trying to earn the privilege to be who I wanted to be. I’d be influential to those who need it most. Turns out I became a Deaf Education Teacher!!!

Daniela, you are not the handicapped girl in the back of the class babe, you are the leader now. Through days of pain and tears, smiles and laughs. You got the career. The first in your family with a Bachelors degree. Thank you for never choosing the easiest way out. For not giving out to the “can’t” I love you for everything you were and will become.

No more labels… learned as years went by that I closed myself off because I was scared but little did I know everyone is flawed. We all are exactly who we are meant to be. Thank you for trying! For perseverance, for your stubbornness hahaha.

To anyone out there, live YOUR life. Be happy. Do it your way. For you. The world can accommodate. You fit. You matter. Much love. Go forth and conquer. Never give up!!! ❤️

Bubble

Life is like bubbles… Each day or given moment can only be seen once then it vanishes. Here lately, I’ve been shown that good things do happen. No matter how ordinary it is that I may feel. Everything you have earned is because you have worked for it. So yes make a big deal out of everything because this is your “bubble” so do not let anyone bust it just because they do not understand you!!

Changes will happen for hardly anything is linear. Go forth and conquer. Travel the road ahead for you have no clue what is waiting for you. Be humble, gracious, and patient in knowing that you will never go where you are not meant to be. Live and learn. Laugh and love. Sing and dance. Be loud like me hahaha. I’ll let you know something half of us are winging each day too no one has a clue what’s going on!

Know that at least one person out here is rooting for you! Be your hype. No dream is too small because the sky is limitless!

Color Burst

Yoooooo, what’s popping?! I am here to remind you to live for yourself. Cast all your colors and let them shine!!! You did not go through every trial to let it sit like it is nothing. Shout off the rooftop, with all your growth and accomplishments because only you know how hard it’s been to get to where you are today!!!

Let your colors burst. Trust me it will never bother those that are genuinely happy for you!! You have traveled this far to earn what you have today. Be loud and be proud about it. Paint the picture you want and live for it, no one’s opinion matters more than the way you see yourself.

Set the world on fire! People are watching make it worth something, I’m rooting for you always! 💛

Crumbled

Cracked, shattered, and on the floor, but you are still visible! See yourself for everything you are. As you are. Not the way you feel, for we are all imperfect and still your image is important. Life is an adrenaline cycle, a never-ending ride of emotions!! Live it!!! Feel it. All of that, that makes you human.

You will never go any further than your feet are to the ground, and although it feels like you’ll never get up, you can only go up. Hold on because I am rooting for comfort and peace. We often criticize everything that is “ugly” to us. However, take a minute, and analyze how through every scar and tear you have shed you still stand strong and courageous as ever.

As cliche as it may sound nothing last forever, you will become uncrumpled. You will be bubbly and ecstatic once again!! Stay golden, never wash away your personality to fit in. I am rooting for you always and forever!!!

Imposter Syndrome

STOP JUST STOP…. As a girl that self-sabotage’s almost everything seriously. Look at you! Standing in the mirror, yes it is you. All that is coming is truly for you. I heard something not long ago that said, “that opportunity is for you if not it wouldn’t be here. It wouldn’t be in your path.” That hit me because it is true. You are more than capable to complete that task. Believe it!! Even when at times you feel at a loss or like someone else can do it better, maybe, but NEVER the way you can!

Your head is always thinking the worst. Yet again, the impulsiveness in you will bring out the best moment. Live unapologetically, to the best of you. Everything you are. Energetic and loud for here is a secret you can not sabotage what is yours!! Live with your emotions on your sleeve, you are meant to flourish not water down!!

Rooting for you always… don’t let your imposter syndrome win. Go forth and conquer!!

Somehow

Summer, summer! you’ve been heavy since you arrived. However, I’m here to tell you it is all good. Just close your eyes, and somehow, somewhere for a split second, there is comfort in your favorite song, stuffing your face in a cupcake, or laughing until your stomach hurts. Things are not always at peace and the stress-freak in me screams at chaos, but I know deep down that the best is to come. We all know that yet again we rush for things to be pretty and perfect all the time and we want to skip the lessons we have to learn. The pain and tears will bring the greatest smiles and laughs the planet has to offer, just hold on a little longer.

Growth is not linear. Gentle. Nevertheless pretty, but it comes to making a better version of yourself. You have survived all the days before this one, and you will tomorrow too. Somehow you always do. In the midst of it all, things align the way they should. All that is yours will be there. I’m rooting for you and know that you are exactly where you are meant for me to be. Be gentle to yourself, you are enough and worthy of all the things you desire.

Shine bright, live unapologetically! Never change yourself to fit in. The world is better with you here 🪄

Rush

Hi, everyone!! Recently, I hit chapter 23 of my life. It started intense to say the least, but I sit here and reflect on everything, may this year be full of growth and happiness. This year is huge, internship is around the corner, graduating, jobs, etc I’m rushing to get to the finish line. That is just it, why rush everything in due time self aligns!! Enjoy where you are now. Everything that is meant to happen will happen. All that is yours is waiting for you. It will not be given to anyone else!

Slow down, and watch your surroundings!! Sing your heart out. Laugh out loud, love immensely! Share yourself as you are!! Never water yourself down, someone out there needs it. Check on those that nurture you, but most importantly choose you, always!!!

Don’t rush to be present. Take courage! Be strong. Follow your gut – rooting for you always!! 🤍

Perfect

Hello humans!!! After a much-needed rest, finished up my teaching observation and I am now preparing for my internship, life is good!!! One step closer to finally living the dream! Anyways, most of us go through things feeling like we can do better. That we need a level of perfection from beginning to end, my observation taught me that it is not about perfection, but intention. People tend to want to find “the missing piece” when you have four petals instead of five. You make magic with FOUR you cannot have five. Emerge. Be present & float with the performance you can create.

People are not expecting you to fail, but grow!! You are strong and capable of everything you want to achieve. Just stay in it, fight, with all you have and anyone rooting for you from the heart will be proud of your progress!!! Because we only have one shot at life and we miss out on so much trying to be perfect. Be intentional. Clear. That is exactly how you will execute a masterpiece on your next step!! Do what sets your soul on fire!!

If it makes sense to you then your results will be worth it. Never count yourself short, someone is watching and learning from your impact. Rooting for you always!!!

The Challenge

They say when you face fear, it is when you should do more!! But our “fight and flight” response tells us to return to comfort. That is just it what do you do, stay and try? Or run? When being in a new environment where you are not quite adapted or comfortable can be terrifying. We want to do what we know so we excel in all categories and not have to think of failure or mistakes in the new scenarios.

Well news flash: we are placed where we are needed most. Where you will learn. Flourish. Be of an asset in one way or another. Everyone is a piece missing in someone else’s puzzle!!! Recently, I’ve endured a lot of changes. Challenges. New people. I have quickly discovered I have something to offer to help them prosper, kinda cheesy yeah, but we do and never realize it.

Someone said, “we are like the island of misfits” because it is ironically true, no one spends time doing the challenges. Long paperwork. the patience of taking longer is too much because we are always in a rush to finish first. Racing the clock like we are running out of time. Go where no one else goes. It may not be a walk in the sky but to someone else, it is what they have always needed!!! be kind. be the impact. Rooting for you always!! Rise to the challenges, there is probably something far greater waiting for you!!!
