Este episodio de Sábado Sabio es sobre el emprendimiento y las lecciones que he aprendido en los primeros 99 episodios. Aunque el camino de todas las emprendedoras sea diferente, todos tenemos el poder de aprender algo de nuestras experiencias. Grabar, editar y publicar los primeros 99 episodios no ha sido fácil y ha requerido de mucho esfuerzo y tenacidad. La bendición detrás de todas las experiencias son las lecciones, lo cual decidí compartirlas con todos ustedes. Las tres lecciones que platico en el episodio de hoy giran alrededor de la creatividad, iniciativa, y planificación. Muchos emprendedores no cuentan con inversiones grandes cuando lanzan su negocio. Tener pocos recursos económicos ha resultado en una abundancia de creatividad que ha servido para crecer nuestra iniciativa y plataforma. La segunda lección habla sobre la importancia de tomar iniciativa y como este hecho es mas importante que cualquier idea de negocio que alguien puede tener. La tercer lección vino cuando empecé a planificar muchos distintos aspectos de mi vida personal y profesional. En el episodio escucharan en detalle como estas tres lecciones se han manifestado y porque las elegí como las mas importantes del año. Publicar los primeros 99 episodios del podcast ha sido un sueño hecho realidad. Me siento privilegiada de poder crear contenido que inspira a mujeres en todas partes del mundo y espero que este siguiente año me traiga mucha mas inspiración y lecciones que pueda seguir compartiendo con todos ustedes. Gracias por ser mi acompañante en este camino lleno de tesoros e introspección.

3 Things I've Learned From Recording The First 99 EpisodesCrazy to think that one year ago, I was visualizing what it would be like to have the WOWW Campaign podcast launched. One year later, I'm writing about the lessons learned that this journey has taught me these past 12 months as a result of recording the first 99 episodes. My goal was to publish one episode per week, so to have 99 episodes recorded feels somewhat surreal, but immensely gratifying. Although this path hasn't been easy, it's been enlightening and well worth the challenge. I've learned a plethora of lessons that I hope will help to inspire other entrepreneurs and encourage people to keep going. As you'll hear in this podcast episode, some of my darkest times have been my greatest teachers and sources of inspiration for new projects. Aside from absorbing the lessons learned, I've remained hungry for discovery because knowledge and evolution is infinite. I'm certain that the next 99 episodes will bring new lessons, new experiences, and new sources of inspiration. But for now, I leave you with an episode about scarcity, planning, winning, loss, consistency, and the importance of taking initiative. Enjoy!

Cargar la responsabilidad del mundo puede ser muy exhausto. Hacer todo sola nos saca la energía fisicamente y emocionalmente, lo cual es importante encontrar un sistema de apoyo. El mensaje de hoy es sobre el hecho de que "los grandes" no lograron el éxito solos - todos han tenido familiares, amigos o conocidos que han servido de apoyo emocional, especialmente durante momentos difíciles. En el podcast, he entrevistado a muchas mujeres líderes de distintas partes del mundo y lo que todas han tenido en común es que tienen presente que han llegado donde están con ayuda de alguien o un pensamiento que alimenta la idea que se necesita de los demás. En este episodio de Sábado Sabio, platico de como mi fe me ha servido de muchas formas positivas. Creer en algo más grande que yo me ha dado la motivación necesaria para seguir adelante y dejar ir situaciones y circunstancias que demuestran no servir para bien. En vez de ahogarme en los hechos que no han resultado a mi favor, elijo creer que todo está sucediendo como debe de ser. Lo único que podemos hacer es presentarnos, dar lo mejor que tenemos, y dejar el resto en las manos del Universo. El aislamiento tiene el poder de llevarnos a lugares muy oscuros y depresivos, lo cual espero que el mensaje de hoy nos recuerde de la importancia de la unión y comunidad.

You Can't Do It AloneI've interviewed many female leaders and there's a common denominator that was the inspiration behind today's Words of Wisdom Wednesday episode. Whether it's a spouse, friend, neighbor, or your faith, we all rely on something/someone to remind us we're not in this alone. I discuss how some of my darkest moments that came after my grandmother's passing was due to extreme feelings associated with loneliness, which in turn led to isolation and despair. Whether you're an entrepreneur or not, the purpose of today's message is to encourage unity because regardless of our path, we need other people to navigate some of life's challenges. In this podcast episode, you'll hear how my faith ultimately played a positive role in my depression and was a catalyst to my recovery. Believing in something greater and ultimately, the thought that someone was by my side guiding my steps gave me strength because alone, the thought of doing life was too much to do on my own. "You can't do it alone" is a message I hope leaves women feeling inspired to not only help others, but also seek help for themselves. Independence is great, but it's not the ultimate source of power and I do believe that because we need one another, we're all better together.

¿Que significa 'autocuidado'? Para mí, esa palabra se refiere hacia el cuidado a uno mismo, lo cual principia con ser honesto con uno misma y tomar prioridad en cuidarse tanto físicamente como emocionalmente. El episodio de este Sábado Sabio es sobre la importancia del autocuidado y porque es importante quererse uno mismo antes de ejercer amor hacia los demás. En este episodio van escuchar porque siento que es importante hacer cosas que queremos hacer, y no solo dedicarnos a cosas obligatorias. Al tomar decisiones sobre nuestras acciones, tenemos que analizar si lo hacemos porque eso espera la sociedad de nosotros. Ultimamente, me doy cuenta que me sentía culpable de no tener un pasatiempo o algún hobby fuera del podcast. Al poner este tema en perspectiva, llegue a la conclusión que todos lo relacionado con WOWW Campaign me hace muy feliz, lo cual lo considero una gran parte de mi autocuidado. Aunque muchos no comparten esta idea, lo mas importante para mi ha sido mantenerme honesta del porque hago el podcast y porque es necesario para mi salud mental y emocional. Espero que este episodio del podcast los deje pensativos y analizando partes de sus vidas para que le den mas importancia a los temas que nos llena el espíritu o nos hace mejor individuos. Entre más nos enseñamos a nosotros mismos, más amor le podemos dar a los que nos rodean.

Self-Care Is Not SelfishLately, I hear a lot of references made about the importance of "self-care" but to be honest, I wasn't quite sure what it meant or entailed. I would immediately picture myself getting a manicure whenever I'd hear this topic come up. But lately, I've become more curious about the idea of taking care of yourself and what that actually feels like. The past six months have been some of the happiest times of my entire life so I've taken time to carefully examine the things that have contributed to these joyful {pun intended} feelings. I want to begin by clarifying that my sudden increase in happiness hasn't come from the abolition of sad or unhappy moments. Neither has it been a result of a sudden inheritance or pile of wealth that has allowed me to travel the world. None of that has remotely happened, so like everyone else, I still have "bad" days and continue to be a motivated entrepreneur trying to grow my platform. The cause of my happiness has been because of "self-care" and the fact that I finally know what that means for me. Taking care of yourself is not selfish and in fact, it should be required. You can't give to others what you don't give to yourself, so it's important to define those parameters sooner than later. I learned that saying "no" isn't difficult for me to do and when I agree to circumstances or people that go against who I truly am, it doesn't feel good in my body and sooner or later, ends up manifesting in negative ways. Therefore, I started to say 'no' a lot more often while creating boundaries in my friendships and relationships so I could remain true to myself. This resulted in spending less time with people that had gone way past their expiration date in my life. I learned that everyone isn't meant to stay forever and taking care of myself, actually putting self-care into practice, meant being honest. For the first time in months, I recently took a day off to act like a tourist. I realized that I refrained from doing non-working activities because my childhood taught me that in order to be valued, doing something/anything was necessary. I felt worthless when I wasn't working, so I always worked. But one of the greatest epiphanies I've had has been related to my work and this podcast. I've come to the conclusion that self-care is everything that makes your heart sing and for some, that includes the professional work you do or how you make a living. I'm lucky to be in a field that speaks to my soul on a daily basis and even though it's hard for many to believe that I rather be working than doing almost anything else, it's true. In this episode of Words of Wisdom Wednesday, I talk about the importance of self-care, what that looks like for me and why I feel the need to encourage other women to seek similar feelings within themselves.

Los momentos difíciles son inevitables, pero en el transcurso de intentar navegar el impacto emocional, descubrí que tener herramientas aplicables hace una gran diferencia. Hace unos años, no entendía la importancia del desarrollo personal y lo importante que es tener el objetivo de descubrimiento. Conocer lo que nos hace sentir mejor o peor no es un proceso de un día o un momento. Al contrario, todo va evolucionando, incluyendo como respondemos durante estos momentos difíciles. El episodio de este Sábado Sabio es sobre las herramientas que yo implemento en mi vida. No son cosas milagrosas y tampoco pretendo ser psicóloga. Hablo de lo que he descubierto y como me ayuda en mi día a día para inspirar a los demás y crear más enfoque sobre la importancia de la salud mental y emocional. Cuando he pasado por momentos difíciles, muchas veces he dejado que la situación dicte mi estado emocional. Es difícil ver una solución o tener fe hacia el futuro cuando nos sentimos derrotados. Las herramientas que uso hoy en día son acciones pequeñas que sumadas, hacen una gran diferencia. Organizar/limpiar, leer y trabajar me ayudan a dar pasos hacia adelante cuando siento que estoy paralizada en un solo momento. Este sentimiento es mas probable de suceder cuando el momento es difícil o la circunstancia no nos permite ver las posibles soluciones. Me he dado cuenta que cuando mi mundo interno se siente fuera de control, está reflejado en mi nivel de organización con cosas al mi alrededor. Organizar mi espacio siempre me regresa sentimientos de paz y tranquilidad, por lo cual es una de las herramientas que implemento durante momentos difíciles. Leer en la mañana o antes de dormir me trae mucha inspiración y reflexión. Reflejar en cualquier sentido me trae sentimientos positivos y me hacen sentir que estoy avanzando de alguna forma. Inspiración siempre me sirve para desarrollar mi creatividad y ver cosas con otra perspectiva. Cuando dejo de leer, me doy cuenta que mi estado interno no se siente igual, lo cual hace que implemente esta herramienta constantemente.

Alex Molina Covenant HouseI first knew of Alex Molina's story on the Oprah Winfrey Show years ago during an episode that I'm sure no one remembers {kidding}: the one where everyone got a car. During this episode, Alex received a makeover as well as other gifts that would later pave the way for the new trajectory her life was getting ready to embark on. Super Soul Sunday recently did a short segment at the end of one of their episodes featuring Alex Molina's life and how things had come full circle for her. The non-profit organization that once became her home, Covenant House, was now her place of work and she was giving back in ways that she hadn't previously imagined. During this segment, Alex was seen speaking about her life, her experiences, and some of the lessons she had gathered along the way. I knew I had to interview her when I couldn't stop thinking about her story and how she managed to now have such a positive perspective after everything she had gone through. Tears filled my eyes for what seemed like hours and the next morning, I knew interviewing Alex Molina would be one of the last conversations I'd have in 2017. Her energy and contagious optimistic way of looking at life is felt throughout the interview. Above all, her sense of gratitude for "what is" versus "what could've been" is something I hope everyone takes away from her story. From growing up in foster homes to being granted emancipation, Alex found a home in people, Covenant House and through unexpected circumstances that today, make her the strong woman I had the privilege of interviewing. Alex Molina's story is one of resilience, faith, perseverance and unconditional love. My hope is that everyone that listens to this interview is equally as inspired as I was and that when we're going through a challenging time in our life, we recall her story and remember that regardless of how things may seem right now, there's always a way through as long as we choose to keep going.

Distance From People Can Be Good For The SoulToday's Words of Wisdom Wednesday podcast episode is about the importance of choosing your surroundings wisely, including people you allow into your life. We often hear the words "the more the merrier," but this isn't necessarily true. Sometimes, our souls need to be protected and 'distance' happens to be the cure. Distance creates space, both physically and mentally. It's true that we often appreciate what we have once it's no longer available. That's not to say that only through alienation will we feel gratitude because we can be grateful when we're close to others, too. However, space, silence, distance and solitude can be used for the positive. We often notice a shift in some way and this helps us clarify whether this is a relationship worth keeping or not. Distance between two individuals should be seen as something positive and a tool that can only benefit us in the long-run. When two people separate, they either come back together or stay apart and when the separation is permanent, most people realize they're better off without the other, which is a win for all parties involved. Fear often keeps us from exploring this space and therefore, we fight to keep things unified when maybe there's nothing left to salvage. Today's message was recorded to inspire you and encourage you to look at these scenarios with an optimistic mindset. We learn and grow through our experiences and practicing these messages, which is why it's important that they're discussed. Distance from people isn't always a negative outcome and today's Words of Wisdom explores the many different ways that this has been true in my life.

Founders of Stop, Breathe & Think AppJulie Campistron and Jamie Price are the Founders of Stop, Breathe & Think. I first discovered them on Apple's show, Planet of the Apps. In this podcast interview, they share their background, how they met, the lessons they've learned along the way, and how they manage to be mothers while being part of a startup. Julie and Jami came from a corporate and non-profit environment before joining forces and making it their mission to encourage meditation and stillness through their app. They talk about how meditation has helped them in their personal life during difficult times, such as grief and loss. Slowing down increased their focus and level of acceptance, whether it was learning to manage their demanding careers or the passing of difficult emotions as they surfaced. Because meditation and stillness is something I've incorporated into my daily routine, I was curious to know how their path led them to become entrepreneurs. During our conversation, you'll hear them discuss details about personal circumstances that paved the way to their present and future. Through various professional changes and experiences, Julie and Jamie talk about the how they believe that each one of those moments served as a building block for their personal and professional growth. They've learned to prioritize under the pressure that comes with the technology startup space, and along the way, have picked up tools and resources that they continue to apply in their business, Stop, Breathe & Think. In this interview, you'll hear inspiring lessons from two women that are paving the way for others, including mothers and aspiring entrepreneurs.

3 Things I Do When I'm Feeling BlueToday's Words of Wisdom Wednesday episode is about mental health and the importance behind implementing tools that make you feel better or put you in a healthier state-of-mind. As I've mentioned before in previous podcast episodes, depression has been something I've struggled with consistently and only recently have I started to recognize which small changes in my daily routine help influence my mindset. In this episode, I talk about the three things I do when I'm feeling blue in hopes of inspiring others to seek understanding behind their own personal struggles and circumstances. The three things I do are:
  1. Organize my personal space.
  2. Read with Frankie {WOWW Campaign's Chief Motivation Officer AKA my dog}.
  3. Do tasks related to work productivity.
1. Organize my personal space.
Organizing my external surroundings instantly makes my internal world more peaceful. By nature, I'm the type of person that appreciates things being in their place and a sense of cleanliness. In the darkest moments of my depression, I noticed a pattern that was not reflective of who I truly am. I realized that anytime I didn't feel at peace with myself, my home was usually disorganized as well, which has never been a habit of mine. When I started to do things around my house that were parallel with how I actually wanted to feel internally, it was instantaneously satisfying, so I did more of this. And during difficult times, I make a conscious effort to keep things around me in their place, not because it gives me a sense of control, but rather because it brings me happiness and a sense of stability that reminds me of my potential and where I aim to be.
2. Reading with Frankie.
I used to think that I'd read one book and then it'd lead to a permanent state of enlightenment. Not sure what I was thinking, but I know now that's not the case. In fact, I'd crave inspiration when I wasn't reading a book early in the morning or before going to sleep at night, so I began to pay closer attention to the feelings reading would bring me. What I noticed was that I felt "lighter" and more at peace when I was learning and acquiring knowledge in some way. It made me feel like I was moving in a positive direction or simply that I was moving forward, in general. Over time, I learned to be more consistent about my reading habits so I could benefit from the effects this habit had on my mental health. Luckily, I discovered Kindle Unlimited, which I immediately subscribed to in order to read many different books per month and as a result, improve my overall well-being.
3. Doing tasks related to work productivity.
No matter how small the task, I don't allow my depression to knock me out like it once did. It used to show up and I'd be "paralyzed" for days, sometimes weeks. One day, I decided to do something as simple as check my email even though I didn't even have the energy to eat. I felt useful, even for those few moments, but it was a positive feeling that left it's imprint. So the next time I was feeling depressed, I again forced myself to make a phone call or contact a client. Little by little, these small tasks became addicting during these dark periods because it felt better than not doing anything at all. In time, I wanted to do more productive actionable tasks that would lead to an accumulation of an entire workday. Noticing these things required a tremendous amount of self-awareness and vulnerability because it wasn't easy to admit that there was a problem to begin with. These observations became tools and in-time, valuable assets that never expire and have a positive ROI on my business, but on my physical and mental health as well.

Así como tenemos temporadas de clima, programas de television y hasta los deportes, lo mismo sucede con nuestras relaciones personales. Hoy, en el podcast, platico sobre el hecho de que aunque algunas amistades o noviazgos se terminen, todo mundo tiene un propósito en nuestra vida y es importante enfocarse en las lecciones y no en el hecho de que se haya terminado la relación. Ya sea por motivos culturales o ego, muchos tememos decir "ya no nos hablamos" o "fíjate que la amistad se acabó." Les quiero recordar que no todos tienen que estar en nuestras vidas para siempre y la mayoría de las cosas son temporales. Lo mismo pasa cuando conocemos a alguien y nos enamoramos. Nunca sabemos si ese amor va ser para toda la vida o si tiene algún otro propósito en nuestra vida; lo importante es aceptar lo que esté sucediendo en el momento con la intención de absorberlo como algo temporal si las circunstancias se dirigen hacia ese camino. Cuando no tenemos presente que la gente es nuestro mejor aprendizaje, perdemos la oportunidad de aprender y crecer cómo individuos y es probable que sigamos atrayendo algo similar en el futuro. Espero que se disfruten el mensaje de este Sábado Sabio en el podcast de WOWW Campaign. Al final de este episodio menciono nuestra nueva estación en Anchor.fm donde comparto distintos mensajes todos los días. Son mensajes breves que duran menos de dos minutos pero la aplicación permite que llamen a la estación {gratis} y pregunten o comenten lo que quieran. Abajo está el link así que espero bajen la aplicación en sus teléfonos!

We're All In This TogetherI love talking about relationships and the lessons that various circumstances left behind in my life. Because of this, I decided to write a book titled: 10 Lessons My Exes Left Behind. If you'd like to know when it'll be available on Amazon, sign up to our newsletter using this link. Today's message is about empathy and how realizing that we're more similar than we are different helped me feel compassion and empathy towards ex boyfriends that I once felt didn't deserve any of these emotions from me. In this podcast episode, I talk about how my faith and believing that we all come from the same "Source" influenced my perspective by eliminating hierarchy between personalities and individuals. Realizing that we all feel pain and heartache but maybe show it in different ways allowed me to feel closer to people that I had previously rejected. In no way does this mean that we should allow everyone into our life because of these similarities. Rather, this perspective should serve to help us heal and let go of situations and people by not allowing feelings of anger or remorse to feed our ego. "We are all in this together" is a reminder that we all have our highs and lows and we all make mistakes in different areas of our life. The magnitude of our mistakes don't make one person better than the other. On the contrary, I've learned that many of the experiences and feelings we encounter are inevitable because life is full of suffering. Therefore, these similarities among human beings should support why we should forgive more often, exhibit compassion and remember that we are all in this together.

El mensaje de este Sábado Sabio es sobre el emprendimiento y como ser emprendedor no es para todos. El número de mujeres que abren sus propias compañías está aumentando cada año, por lo cual es importante tener estas conversaciones. Gracias a las redes sociales, podemos ponernos al día con nuestros seres queridos y ver los momentos felices que muchos están viviendo. Lo malo de esto es que lo "bueno" es lo único que vemos, haciendo que nuestra perspectiva y realidad gire al rededor de falsas expectativas. Decidí platicar de esto en el podcast porque hay muchos sacrificios y lados oscuros que acompañan el emprendimiento. Antes de tener cualquier éxito, es necesario pasar por momentos difíciles donde los resultados son bajos en comparación de la cantidad de esfuerzo que se deposita en un negocio. Ser emprendedora me ha enseñado muchas cosas y entre ellas, también ha fortalecido mi resiliencia. Vender, ya sea un producto o servicio, es parte de cualquier negocio. Si el rechazo o la palabra 'no' causa que una persona se paralice del miedo, el emprendimiento tal vez no sea el camino adecuado para ese individuo. La cantidad de veces que me han rechazado en comparación con la cantidad de veces que me han dicho "si" es mucho mayor, pero eso no lo vemos en Instagram o Facebook. Aún los grandes programadores y técnicos se encuentran con el dilema de que para que un negocio sea exitoso, se necesita mucho mas que una simple idea. Antes y después de que la idea se vuelva realidad, se deposita mucho tiempo en los sistemas y la planificación. Todo esto no lo ve el público, por lo cual el emprendimiento ha sido sensacionalizado últimamente.  Aunque leamos libros y escuchemos podcasts inspiradores, los pasos que debemos tomar nunca estarán marcados con detalles. El emprendedor es responsable por identificar e ir modificando la trayectoria conforme vayan sucediendo las experiences. Si una persona necesita estructura, el emprendimiento tal vez no sea el camino adecuado para ese individuo. Ser emprendedor no es para todos porque hay muchas piezas que requieren ajustes, paciencia, resiliencia, valor y fuerza. Antes de empezar un negocio, es importante evaluar y ser honestos con nosotros mismos si estas son características que podemos proporcionar.

3 Reasons Why Entrepreneurship Is Not For EveryoneAccording to my research {AKA Google Searches}, this week is recognized by many global organizations as "Entrepreneurship Week." Lately, I feel like entrepreneurship has been sensationalized and some of the realities associated with this journey aren't discussed enough, which is why many entrepreneurs suffer in silence. Choosing this path comes with a lot of freedom and yes, making your own schedule is an attractive aspect of entrepreneurship. However, with this kind of freedom comes a plethora of other aspects that are not-so-attractive and often, extremely difficult to get accustomed to. In today's Words of Wisdom Wednesday podcast episode, I'll be highlighting 3 reasons why entrepreneurship is not for everyone.
  1. You have to be detail oriented, but detached from perfectionism.
  2. Rejection shows up on a daily basis.
  3. Most of us are slaves to comparing.
1. You have to be detail-oriented, but detached from perfectionism.
Before I launched the WOWW Campaign podcast, I had to breakup with perfectionism because this was holding me back in more ways than one. When I was creating the podcast, I researched things to-death because I didn't want to create or publish anything that wasn't viewed as "perfect." However, creating a platform from scratch can feel like you're putting together a puzzle. It requires you to keep the big picture in-mind, while training your mind to think on a micro level and bridge the pieces necessary that'll make up the end goal. The attention to detail is constant and necessary if you plan to be successful. But if you're tied to perfection, those details will not only take twice as long to create, they may not even get completed at all. Speed is everything in the beginning stages of a business and if you're not willing to create, adjust and pivot on a regular basis without taking things personal, entrepreneurship is not for you.
2. Rejection shows up on a daily basis.
Whether or not you're selling a tangible product, entrepreneurship always requires a sales component. Sometimes you're selling an idea while other times, you're selling a service no one has purchased. Unless you're Oprah's child or have a last name that's known globally, you'll probably be the only one that's going to have blind faith in your idea. Family and friends not showing the support you thought they would is a form of rejection and yes, it's painful. Potential clients not returning an email or phone call is also a form of rejection. Reality is, rejection shows up on a daily basis when you're an entrepreneur. Today, we live in a world where 'likes' dictate our popularity, which is having a negative impact on the mental state of many people around the world. If you're sensitive to these things or the idea of rejection overwhelms you with fear, entrepreneurship is not for you.
3. Most of us are slaves to comparing.
Social media has made it easy for people to analyze strangers, which has created a vicious cycle of comparing and contrasting. The truth is there will always be someone more successful or more attractive than you. If you have any type of physical insecurity, this can be enhanced due to social media. The same applies for entrepreneurs because competitors also have access to the number of 'followers' and growth a business is experiencing. In order to be successful, we have to stay in our lane and commit to focused productivity. Entrepreneurs can't afford to waste time looking at what their neighbor is doing because not only is it time consuming, it's counterproductive. If you're a slave to comparing in any way, entrepreneurship is not for you.

El mensaje de hoy es sobre la felicidad y específicamente cómo nuestra felicidad interna afecta la dinámica de nuestras relaciones. Ser feliz uno mismo es ser feliz con sus circunstancias y tener fe de que uno esta siendo dirigido hacia un mejor camino. Cuando uno es feliz solo, no es dependiente de gente o cosas externas para que nos den lo que solo nosotros podemos proveer. Una de las lecciones mas grandes que he aprendido gracias a mis relaciones personales es sobre la felicidad y como no sentirlo me hizo dependiente de mi pareja. En una relación, los papeles a veces cambian porque en momentos, nuestra pareja tal vez necesite que nosotros seamos un rayo de positivismo o esperanza. Pero si siempre somos dependientes de otra persona para sentir felicidad, nuestras reacciones no van a ser positivas cuando ellos entran en un estado de negatividad. Esta es una de las razones porque es importante tomar inventario de nuestras emociones internas para poder estar más presentes en nuestras relaciones. Otro beneficio que trae la felicidad individual es que también nos trae claridad. Entre más feliz somos solos, mas claro tenemos que es lo que nos motiva, inspira y hace reaccionar. Al conocer a una persona que podría ser nuestra pareja, podemos aceptar la relación y también la persona por lo que es sin esperar algo que tal vez no son capaces de dar. Muchas veces, las personas no nos pueden dar lo que nosotros necesitamos pero por dependencia y miedo a la instabilidad, toleramos más de lo que deberíamos. Ser feliz uno solo nos quita el miedo a la soledad y esto hace que también establezcamos limites que ayudan para mantener el equilibrio emocional. Espero que el mensaje de este #SábadoSabio los inspire a evaluar como están tomando responsabilidad sobre su propia felicidad. Es importante que tomemos decisiones en todos los aspectos de nuestras vidas que nos sirva para seguir desarrollándonos no solo como personas, pero también como compañeros.

Everyone Has A Place In Your LifeBy nature, I'd define myself as an "intense" person because I'm passionate about topics and my love towards certain conversations isn't forced. This trait naturally translates into my personal life because my relationships with people carry a lot of weight since allowing someone into my space isn't the easiest task. Although I'm fascinated by human beings and the complexity of our emotional and mental state, who I spend my free time is a different story. I don't have a lot of free time, therefore, where it's allocated and how it's dispersed is strategically calculated. I used to think that everyone in our life had to occupy the place of "BFF." However, life and time have taught me that individuals vary for a reason and therefore, it's normal that our dynamic with people vary as well. Everyone isn't meant to be our best friend or love of our life. In fact, many people are here for the sole purpose of teaching us lessons and exposing us to new ways of thinking. Some people are here to open our hearts, even after they've been broken. The point is, everyone has a place in your life. The reason some people only stay for a season remains a mystery, but always has a purpose, which is why we should be grateful for the experiences we're a part of with these people. In this episode of Words of Wisdom Wednesday, I talk about how I've learned to accept the different types of relationships into my life. Looking back on my friendships, they were what I needed at the time even though some of them may have transformed into something different that now feels foreign. As people, we're constantly changing, so it's only normal that the relationships in our life evolve as well. When a relationship ends, look for the lessons because they're always there, waiting to be discovered. Often time, there's shame associated with the end of a relationship or friendship because we're afraid that others may think we're not worthy or flawed in some way. In order to embrace the lessons that arise from these situations, we must first let go of the need to please other people and accept that regardless of circumstances, people will always have an opinion about situations unrelated to them. By releasing the shame, we open ourselves to the possibility of self-awareness, enlightenment, fresh perspectives, and a yearning for personal development.
