• Travel Recap: We All Grow Summit

    When there is an opportunity to travel to the west coast…I’m there! It was manifested by accepting to lead a wellness circle at We All Grow Summit in Long Beach, CA. As I have been a Latina Blogger Connect contributor for over a year, I was honored to attend this conference. My favorite part of the trip is connecting one on one  with others. Inspiring others or being inspired by them was the best gift. The service and accommodations at Hotel Maya were impeccable. One of my cherished spots is Lake Shrine in Los Angeles, CA. That is a must-see!

    I’ve returned more motivated in making this blog more impactful: mind, body, and soul and most of all giving back. I’ll be as bold as to say that my #goal is to be a keynote speaker and lead a yoga class at the next conference! Please enjoy some pics of my travels.

    Since I’m always hopping on the positive train, I wanted to share this article in Latin Times, which stood out for me. As a Spanish speaker, at times I accentuate certain words to add that extra spice.

    ¿No me creáis?

    Researchers from the University of Vermont have found an advantage and benefit of speaking Spanish. Or rather, in the new way Spanish-speakers express themselves. According to the researchers, those who converse in Spanish are more positive and speak in a more positive manner than those who speak other languages.
