The Importance of Celebrating Heritage and Continuing Traditions

The Importance of Celebrating Heritage and Continuing Traditions

One thing that I always try to teach my children is that although we are American, understanding our heritage gives us an idea of how our ancestors lived and how and why our traditions came to be. I believe it is very important to learn our culture and where we came from, especially from a familial perspective. Understanding where we came from allows us to share how things came to be–through necessity or through old traditions and beliefs. I learned at an early age to participate in cultural activities because it creates a bond that we all share. Here are …

Food and Family: The Cornerstone of Our Traditions

Food and Family: The Cornerstone of Our Traditions

I have always believed the true sign of a wealthy person is not how large their bank account is, but by the amount of love one has with their family and friends. I come from a proud Hispanic family. My parents worked very hard to ensure that my siblings and I never went without. More importantly, they made sure that we always bonded in making life long memories with each other. I have three brothers and two sisters spread across the state of Texas. Our lives can get pretty busy with everything we have going on– from school, work, and …

From One Working Mom: Achieving Work-Life Balance

Balance: an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady. With more and more moms in the workforce, there is naturally a ton of buzz around attaining the seemingly impossible notion of a work-life balance. I am one of those moms. A working mom to two sweet boys, an almost 3-year-old toddler, Jackson, and an 8-month-old tornado, Rhett. Managing the workload of a career, family responsibilities, friendships, and carving out time for my own self-interests can be at times… daunting. Although this sort of juggling act requires energy, time, dedication, and attention, it’s important to …

My 2019 Health Goals

My 2019 Health Goals

“I don’t run. If you see me run, you too should start running because something is probably chasing me,” was something I always said when my friends would ask me if I wanted to go for a run or participate in a 5K road race. Running was not part of my routine life and I was completely okay living my best life without running in the picture. Then came my late-20s-approaching-30s where I found myself gaining weight and feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. My normal routine of lifting weights and dog walking were not helping me sustain the healthy …

Popping Biscuits and PTSD

*Content may be upsetting to some. Please read with caution. I opened a can of biscuits, all by myself!! Doesn’t sound like a big accomplishment, does it?  To almost 8 million Americans, that simple task could have meant DAYS in the protection of a dark room on high alert.

Make no mistakes, I spent 23 years as a victim living in disgrace, ashamed of what I had been through, …
