Mujeres con canas; mujeres valientes y bellas.

Todo el mundo teme esas primeras canas. A algunas nos llegan antes que a otras. A veces nos salen a la temprana edad de los veinte; a otras no hasta bien entrados los 50. Pero llegar, llegan y eso es una suerte también. Las canas delatan la edad, pero, por suerte, una mujer puede cubrírselas […]

It’s youth’s time. Let’s lead by example.

It’s not our time anymore. It’s youth’s time. We have failed them miserably and even more when we don’t, as adults, send them a message of hope, letting them know that there may be a brighter future and that they are the change. We cannot cry, complain and only allow them to see the dark […]

The road to getting well is bumpy

Nothing could have prepared me for all this sudden change. As scary as change has always been for me, now I welcome it. I’m reaping the benefits of living in a constant state of uncertainty and have learned that the road to getting well emotionally and physically is always bumpy. All the bumps, potholes, turns, […]

Why do we become more solemn as we age?

How I lost my anger.

I learned the art of not becoming angry at a high price. Nothing is free and even less the lessons we learn. When we change it isn’t normally because we will ourselves to. Change comes about from either a traumatic experience or one that shatters our core so much that we are forever changed. In my […]

Middle age; the good, the bad and the road ahead.

I never thought I’d turn 30 just as I never anticipated going through many life changes, difficulties or heartbreaks. Middle age is one of those things we simply don’t see on the horizon when we’re young. Then, reality sets in and time passes. Accepting what is, is hard, and the changes our bodies, minds and […]
