Welcome to my blog! I hope that you will join me on this journey to self-love, learning to overcome depression and other hardships, and creating joy intentionally.

It won't be easy, but it'll be worth it. You're Worth It!

I’m sure you’ve heard of it. It’s EVERYWHERE! And it is one of, if not the most popular “diet” out there right now. Mostly because of the reputation it has for extremely fast weight loss.

That’s just one benefit though… there is so much more to it. I won’t get into it now because I’m not here to talk about all the wonderful things KETO is…

My Frustrations with KETO… and Why I Keep Doing it

After years of struggling with severe depression, negative self-image, and lack of self-worth, I decided it was time to allow myself to be vulnerable, seek help, and find self-love. Though it's an on-going journey, I want to tell my story, share my experiences, and help others living with depression and other mental health issues.

I want to create a space where women in all stages of life, no matter their struggles, can be part of a community where it's safe to be vulnerable, honest, and real. I want to share the hardships of being a wife and mother, and how I manage life and find joy through intentional actions. 

I'm a 37-year-old Latin-American girl, mama, wife, and teacher. Actually, I'm a new stay at home mom, but I will always be a teacher at heart.
