Mil Caras👽

When you get a glimpse of someone’s soul you see the true beauty each human has to offer. It’s hard to have people be their true selves because we know between being ourselves there’s a thin line of judgement. When you fall in love with someone’s personality everything about them seems beautiful. When you meet people who have the years of experience behind them you automatically see the misfits the rebels, you see them as they are with no care for acceptance.

I’m working on a personal project to interview strangers, friends and family with the objective of RAW and SINCERE answers as to how they describe life. How their personal life and upbringing has brought them to their today. Social media has allowed us to wish, want and compare our lives with others from the motivational speaker, the artist, the rockstars, the travelers, the perfect couple, the fashionistas, the fitness gurus, the side of death and even happier times.. celebration of life. Day to day we connect with people we know nothing about and yet sometimes we feel like they are speaking to us by that quote they share or the way they choose to live.

I want to get a small glimpse of who YOU are. I want to see a side of you that even now most partners don’t know about each other. I’m not trying to get into a personal state of mind yet I want you to get personal with challenging your mind to think and speak to a stranger about what makes you who YOU are. I’ll be asking 3-5 questions and you will NOT know what my questions will be till the day of our sit down. I will be taking two headshots, one of your personal preference and one of my choice.

My goal with this project is to show everyone the beauty of being human.. being different. Have you ever spoken to anyone and gotten this raw/ sincere feeling about their soul?. I don’t think there’s anything more beautiful than to see humans in a vulnerable state of mind trying to figure out the words they want to share knowing it’s going to be publish for many to see. Challenging and yet very bold to be an open book.

Change 🎭

” Change can be scary, but you know what’s scarier? Allowing fear to stop you from growing, evolving and progressing.”

“Don’t let the concept of change scare you as much as the prospect of remaining UNHAPPY”.

Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed and rearranged to relocate us to the place or places we are meant to be.

Landing ✈️

A plane can’t land until the coast is clear. Some of our blessings are stuck in the air because of our environment. There’s too much of a mess for your landing. With that being said lets focus our personal growth, environment, and what kind of women/men we are. In order to have the best life possible we have to know what the best decisions are and have the courage to make them.

Not everyday is a good day, live anyway.

Not everyone will tell you the truth, be honest anyway.

Not all you love will love you back, love anyway.

Not all deals are fair, play fair anyway.

I saw my “crazy” side once and decided I wouldn’t be involved with anything or anyone that would take me out of my peace like that. You see for me self love and happiness have truly taken over my current state of mind. Beauty in the little things like the way you hold yourself. Its how you treat people. The way you love. Its self acceptance. Love your detours, your speed bumps, love the journey. Self love is Happiness as it is dangerous to those who remain stuck in a old version of you.

I love myself.

I believe in myself.

I appreciate myself.

I’m working on improving myself.

I will not disappoint myself.

I WILL NOT GIVE UP ON MYSELF.

Women Enpowerment 💕

36B53FB2-D534-4AA9-97EA-C590B66F6B96

Let’s be honest in today’s society, how many times have you heard those two words?… Women empowerment have become the hashtag # trend and have become the daily hot topic 🔥 But what is your personal definition/ opinion of those two words? I had the pleasure in attending an event hosted by a dear friend Justine Alexander who lives in Mexico City. Her theme “women empowerment” MSXX1. A great event that gave the opportunity to many photographers to showcase their pictures of women. All donations and proceeds when to the foundation of Centro de Desarrollo Integral para la mujer Fatima A.C (link attached) http://www.fatimaac.com/quienes-somos.php

One word to describe the event.. Proud. You see  my personal definition of women empowerment is this, Supportive, Kind, Loving, Strong and most importantly UNITY. When women support each other, incredible things happen. I love it when women love themselves. I love it when women inspire other women to love themselves. Acceptance on your status, life choices, age, education, current lifestyle in today’s society is crucial if you don’t fit in the “perfect women” picture. Young/ Single mothers, divorce, betrayed, insecurities, guarded, alone, failure, not good enough are all words that whether one or more apply to us, they have crossed our mind. As women we see ourselves in the mirror every day and absolutely no one can’t tell us anything we don’t critic ourselves already. Which is why I applaud every single person who goes out there to help and support others in whatever it is they need help or share encouraging words. I am beyond blessed to have friends who I have known since I came to the states and over decades of friendships that I value and appreciate. I want nothing but the best for every single one of them. Instead of competing  and comparing our lives with others why not encourage each other, don’t fall into the fake lifestyle of what it’s supposed to be the perfect life goals for women. Time frames are based on no one besides your own, we all have different lives and made different choices. Single, divorce, married, in a relationship my advice is this, just be HAPPY. No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart. Don’t be so hard on yourself speaking from experience I can tell you this, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.

Imperfect 🌪

Imperfect: Not perfect; faulty or incomplete.

All of us are in different stages in life. We may have different strengths and weaknesses, but there isn’t a single person on the planet who hasn’t felt vulnerable or made mistakes. Nor is there a single person who couldn’t be better at something in some area of their life.

While hiding your flaws or pretending to be something or someone you’re not can fool many people and many try to live their lives this way- true  comes from being your authentic self. Don’t be ashamed or afraid of being imperfect. There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections. My motivational quote for today is from J.O something I often do now that I’m older and wiser I am my own cheerleader-flaws and all.

“When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”

Inner child 🎀

A sculptor of two adults after a disagreement, sitting with their backs to each other. Yet, the inner child in both of them simply wants to connect. Age has many beautiful gifts but one we could live without is the pride and resentment we hold onto when we have conflicts with others. The forgiving, free spirit of children is our true nature. Remember this when you feel stubborn. Learn the art of growing without losing your inner child.

If we all could see the world through the eyes of a child, we would see the magic in everything💕
