How to stay Motivated during lockdown?

I want to encourage you to keep pushing in life. Do not let a small problem, or differences amongst other people bring you down. Life brings us unexpected experience, and we go through it like warriors. We all have one life, and need to live it to our fullest potential. It is easy to bring yourself down during a worldwide crisis. However your strength, and potential to fight in unity is stronger.

Therefore, it is important to remember the purpose of living in this world. I have realized that simple moments with our friends and families have been taken for granted. The simple moments of having dinner together, going out for ice cream, or going to the movies have been vanished from our calendars. I had plans to go to my brothers and husband graduation, and both were postponed for further notice. A lot of activities planned for April were cancelled, and we were only left with plans to go to our living room. It is a time in our life that we will always reminisce about.

It is important that I stay motivated physically, mentally, and spiritually. Every week let us focus on achieving each of these areas in our life. This week I have walked my dogs, practiced on my “planks,” I was optimistic during work, and I prayed. It is important to find balance in all of these areas in my life, because it is what makes me a human. I am not perfect, but everyday I strive to be a better person. I challenge you to focus on YOU these next couple of weeks. Make a change. Breathe, laugh and love. 

Listen to the Whisper of Love

Laughing our problems away. There were times I would take life so seriously, and wanted life according to society’s timeline. I know a lot of people have said everyone has their own time line and to not get caught up with what society wants. I understood soon enough that life was not a rush nor a competition. I had to take every step one at a time. I had to stop at every step and enjoy it. I always had a an agenda with goals and plans of life. And boy, if that did not go accordingly to my plans, I would freak, and get anxious. However, this year I have let life be. Just going with the flow and started accepting where I am in life, and visualizing where I wanted to be without compromising myself or people around me. We are all uniquely different, and have so many gifts to share with this world. Gifts are not always materialistic things, it is sharing your love, joy, and kindness to others. Sometimes people just want someone to just listen, and to be there. You don’t always have to understand the thoughts or acts of people. You can listen and love.

Growth

I am a human with so many flaws. I have gained and lost friends. It’s part of life as we grow older and develop into our new stage of life. Each stage it’s so crucial, you will not only learn so much about yourself, but you learn how much your presence can affect others. I have to remind myself to keep on pushing. If I am breathing than I need to live a beautiful life. There are moments in my life that I feel behind or left out within the generations. Growing into a positive mindset takes time, and practice. Trusting the process of our destiny. We don’t always wake up everyday and like the persona that is reflected in the mirror. Sometimes we will feel discouraged, and even contemplate life. Everyone has doubted their purpose in life once.
I encourage you to keep pushing and breathing this beautiful life. Be yourself, and always stand to what you believe in. Always trust the purpose. A tree grows every year, and regardless of the changes in the environment, it evolves within the seasons each year. A tree will never stop being a tree during cold winter days. So you will never stop being you regardless of your environment changes. You will grow, and evolve exactly where you need to be in life.

Starting all over…

I am not the person who takes life too seriously. I am free spirited, and respect everyones opinion about life and their beliefs. I am aware we are all different and unique in our own special way. There are times in our life we end a chapter to start a new one. There was a teacher in my high school who would always say “it’s okay to start all over”. However, I don’t believe we necessarily start all over. We simply start a new mission in life, and take everything we have learned to accomplish our ultimate purpose. You live and you learn. You breathe and you believe. You laugh and you love!

Unconditional Love

It has been a long week of holiday celebrations. My husband and I are both Mexican-Americans, and we are all about being with family. Considering both of our families live here in Dallas we try our best to spend time with both families. Yes, we could probably have one big celebration at our home, so both families could come over, but there is too many members in our family. In the Mexican culture is known for their big familia, +20 members. We all have differences, but at the end we share the same blood, and would do anything for each other. Even if we don’t share the same blood, you will become family. We always remind ourselves of how rich we are in culture and in love within our family. We might not have all the money in the world, but with laughter and love we are millionaires. Love every moment with loved ones, hug them tight, and love unconditionally.
