I can count the many situations that make this world very complicated. Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria were catastrophic and the senseless shooting in Las Vegas was just plain senseless. And let’s not forget the earthquake in Mexico. Inspiration seems dimmed and unattainable. Where do you grab perspective?
“Sometimes you have to look back to see how far you’ve come.”
Although I haven’t been blogging for a while…don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere. There have been major transitions in my life. With the career, fitness, and everything else ever-changing, I still get excited about Little Giant Life. I’m still writing for We All Grow Latina Blogger Network and I’ve become more active via Instagram.
Blogging is a business and it always keeps me on my toes. The face of blogging has changed and has become a multi-functional way of keeping up with trends and making money. It’s not about writing the 500-word article. It’s all about content! Currently, I’m brainstorming how to be more effective to you without burning myself out.
The major update in my life is the journey to becoming a yoga instructor. My friend Amanda Smith took some incredible pictures of this next adventure. The day was inspiring and emotional. She is amazing! Please read the story here.
After a two-year break from teaching any type of class, I’m back to teaching a yoga class at Athleta this Sunday! I don’t know where else I’ll be teaching next, but I’ll be sure to keep you informed.
Thanks for always being there and know that I do what I can to inspire you. Here’s hoping your Holidays are filled with peace and love.
WHEW! It’s been a busy few weeks! I for sure need to drink more water. On top of teaching, writing for Latina Bloggers Connect, researching blog ideas for Little Giant Life, and taking care of everyday life recuperating my body, my mind is full of noise. As I often try to meditate. It’s time to just STOP! As I relished in the beauty of this perfect sunset, I got to thinking. What if I asked you the following?
Can you re-count all the steps you took today from morning to night?
It’s a rarity that I post a picture of myself, although feeling silly about it, there’s a point. Why did I go M.I.A? Here’s the thing. I put myself in creative rehab. And dance is exactly what I needed. I’ve been a dance instructor for over 18 years! Yup you read that right.
Dance has been a hobby, a passion which has taught me to relate with others while inspiring them the best way possible. For me, dance has been a life-long journey. I will never stop. If I’m lucky enough to dance with my cane when I’m old and grey—so be it.
Dance is all about transitions. From a chaine turn to a grand jete, the process is tideuos and takes a lot of hard work–a few aches and pains come along with it! I’ve been known to pose here and there on Instagram.
Finding the right look, voice, and overall content completely took over me with Little Giant Life.
Así que pare todo. (At times, I’ll switch to Español to emphasize my thought!)
Are we as creatives ever happy with what we have? Probably not. However, it pushes me to the point of inspiration to strive for more and more.
Blogging or running your own business is a lot like dancing. There are many ‘transitions’ to get where you want to be. As I continue learning the blogging business, my intention is to make this a two-way conversation. Don’t worry I won’t make you kick your leg up like that…maybe!
My transition also led me to land a new freelance gig! I’m the new contributor for Latina Bloggers Connect. ¡Estoy emocionada!
