Self-love

Self-love

Yesterday during a meditation I realized how little self-love I had, if any at all. This is reflected on how easily I allowed someone else’s actions towards me break me down, make me feel worth-less and little. It was a harsh realization, it brought tears to my face, sadness to my heart and left me…

Note to self

Note to self

This is a note to myself, from the “rational” me to the “emotional” me…from that side that knows things to that side that believes things. Because in the end even “raw facts” are useless unless you really believe them.  You are not disposable, you are not worthless, you are not replaceable. The fact that you feel this way…

Actualizando

Escrito hace una semana…pero sin internet o tiempo hasta ahora.   Le he estado corriendo a escribir hace días. Semanas quizá. Escribo pensamientos y poemas en mi celular o en mi cuaderno cuando las palabras aparecen en mi cabeza pero el sentarme a escribir no se porque le he corrido. Cada vez me gusta menos…

Ella lo es todo

Ella lo es todo

I wrote this last week in a tent in the middle of the jungle surrounded by all the sounds of nature. I wasn’t planning on sharing but after today’s class with @elamareyoga The words resonate with me even more and I chose to share them with the world.    I look at her and find…

Una importante lección

Una importante lección

Hoy he aprendido una enorme lección. De esas que uno siempre lee citas inspiradoras y sabe que suena bien pero nunca la ha vivido. Bueno, así. Hoy aprendí lo que es perdonar. Perdonar enteramente y desde el corazón. Perdonar a alguien más y perdonarme a mí misma. Hace unas semanas llevo cargando dentro de mi…

One of those days

Today was one of those days. The kind where doubts, fears and insecurities cloud your thinking. When you talk to yourself poorly, telling yourself things you would never tell a friend…and yet you tell them to yourself. The most important person. I like to keep busy. Very busy. All the time. Working, training, meeting people,…

Why I write

Why I write

In the past days a few people have commented on my writing. Either making a joke, a compliment or simply asking ‘what’s up with all the writing?’ I can go on without writing for weeks, but then there are moments -like this particular Sunday morning- where words just pour from my fingertips. When my mind…

Sunday Morning Thoughts

Sunday Morning Thoughts

Living with an open heart is difficult. Feeling constantly vulnerable is hard. I don’t know if my train of thought is ‘normal’ or if I’m just a little “messed up.” I believe in saying what you feel…although it might be hard at times, and the reason why it’s so hard –for me- is because I…

Currently…from HK

Currently…from HK

I have been in Hong Kong for the past three weeks. On Dec. 26th I signed my contract to come work here for four months in an outdoor education company. A few days ago I decided to read the contract and realized the date I signed it. I had received the offer 2 weeks prior…

A Pause on the Path / Una Pausa en el Camino

A Pause on the Path / Una Pausa en el Camino

“A pause on the path” This is me. I am 29. I have two passports but belong no where and everywhere. I have a big nose and a few new found wrinkles. I live life with an open heart, vulnerable, exposed, honest. Although it might be a little too much at times for others, although…
