Morning lovelies, I thought I would start this open letter to everyone who fears letting go with a quote from J. K. Rowling.
“Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.”
Typically I write these blog posts for my audience, and hope to shed light on real-life situations and problems but this post is different. I am also writing it for myself. Last week I hit a breaking point, - well it actually might have been while I was at a drag show when I started to bawl harder then I have ever cried while the man sung along to Celine Dion's "I am Alive" - I felt heavy, more heavy than I have ever felt. All I wanted to do was sleep. All I wanted to do was hug the person I miss most. But I could not. I had to make the situation I was in better, by myself, and for me.
So I began to think about everything going on around me and I was overwhelmed with joy and happiness but there was a space in my heart that was filled with darkness and misconception. A place I try not to think about very often... hence why I never address things - things in the the darkness - , or talk about them. That is why I decided to write this for myself, because at that point in time I wish I had something like this to read to make everything better, or go away for a few minutes.
The keys to goal setting are in Organization
"We become what we think about, we are all self made, but only the successful will admit it."Hello everyone! Every day I am asked "Maria, how the fuck do you do it"? Typically I answer by saying, "I guess it is in my blood to hustle." Hours spent thinking about it and I realized that since I was young I developed habits to success! Before we jump into my 5 tips I would just like to quickly get very cheesy with you guys. As you read the list below you may realize that I do not mention one of the most important things to organization, and success...........
In order to succeed, and stay organized you have to believe in yourself. You have to learn to train your mind to believe in yourself more than anyone ever could. The power of believing is the strongest gift you could have. If you are reading this and know that you do not believe in yourself then let me tell you this. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING. Try your hardest, sweat your balls off, never give up, because I swear something amazing is destined for you.

"The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the one you have with yourself"
It has been awhile folks, but I am back with an important topic; learning to love yourself + self confidence. For years and years I would tell myself, and people around me that I was strong. I don't know if I did this because I thought I was, or because I was confusing the word strong for something else. Maybe I was confused because for years I was strong; I was ripped, I had tree trunk muscles legs, and I had the pain tolerance of The Hulk. I guess what I decided to believe is that when I was young (and I believe this to be the same for a lot of people) I was taught that being strong means you are strong.
My parents.*Yep, now I am crying*. These two goof balls came to this country with nothing, and I mean that honestly.
My. Parents. Had. Nothing.
