Be the change you want to see in others!

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I have been struggling with my weight and it feels like a lifetime! But to be honest with myself and others I have to say I have never done a serious effort to achieve my goal. If you ask me why I can give you a gazillion reasons of why I cannot lose weight:
1. Sugar Addiction
2. Will Power
3. PCOS
4. Metabolic Syndrome
5. Hormonal issues
6. My spouse does not support me
7. It’s hereditary
8. I do not have time
9. I don’t know what to eat
10. I feel great as I am

I had a collection of excuses all piled up waiting for someone to make just any comment about my weight issue. I wanted everybody to make changes around me. I would always criticize my husband’s weight issues. Always DEMANDED his support and when he did not support me then he was to blame for my failure. Recently, I was listening to a podcast that talked about “How to change others” and I realized that if you can’t change yourself how can you change others? Is that really possible? AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE. And in that podcast the person shared a quote: You have to be the change you want to see in others. I cannot change anybody but myself and maybe my changes can inspire others. I am not responsible for others failures but my own. I decided that day to let go of all the excuses, blaming and that urge to make others change when I was not ready to take up that challenge of changing myself. Since then I have made choices for me and just for me. I come home and cook healthy for me, workout as often as possible for me, signed up for a 5k for me etc. I do not want to blame anybody anymore for my failures and I do not want to try to change others. That is too much of a burden to hold on to. I want to accept others just as they are and maybe be an inspiration to them someday. I want to lead by example. And maybe nobody follows me or I do not inspire anyone but I do know for sure that when I look myself in the mirror I will be proud of my accomplishments! Proud of reaching goals I thought were out of reach! And proud of being who I am. emoticon

Don't Lose your Momentum!-No pierdas la emocion del momento!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012



Mi Gente de Boricuas and Friends! No se si todos han logrado la meta trazada para el 2012 pero como siempre yo estoy ATRÁS!! Y sobre todas las cosas me rehuso a darme por vencida! Así que he decidido todos los días comenzando en Julio escribir que estoy haciendo para no perder la emoción del momento! Esto me ayudara a mantenerme enfocada en mi meta! He creado un Challenge en donde estaremos posteando nuestros esfuerzos diarios! Pueden entrar a este link directo para postear! Los espero en Julio en el forum para compartir nuestros logros!! Hay muchos fine tuning que debemos hacer para lograr nuestras metas! Comer Saludable, Hacer Ejercicios, Tiempo para meditar, Una lectura positiva, Leer un Blog, Hacer un Blog, mimarnos(no con comida) etc. Lo mejor de todo es que los demás pueden leer sobre lo que estamos haciendo y podemos darle ideas a los demás de que nos esta funcionando para no perder la emoción del momento!

Selfish Acts

Sunday, June 10, 2012

I create the battles
I create the Pain,
I create the quarrels,
That drives you insane.

When you turn your eyes on other people’s needs
I make a feast to honor all your deeds.
When all of your time is to think of gold
You make my way easier deep in to your soul.

In every selfish act you plant a seed
in the garden of my heart that only sows greed.

Welcome to my world
Welcome to my home
Don’t mind the heat
That always holds my throne.

In every selfish act I am to remain
I am the God of all that is mundane.


The journey you have taken is a point of no return
Make yourself at home and be prepared to burn.
There is only one way to pause all this destruction
love, prayer and faith will commence the reconstruction.

Caminando hacia ti

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Planes de bienestar tienes para mí
Pero tuve miedo y de ti Hui.
No creí en tu palabra ni en mi propia fe
Y toda esperanza yo abandone.

Pensé que el dinero todo iba a resolver
Se hizo sal y agua comencé a empobrecer.
Pensé que con mi fuerza todo iba a derribar
Incluyendo la agonía dentro de mi hogar.

Hoy la calamidad toca a mi puerta
Y yo deje de orar he quedado descubierta.
Hoy la destrucción llega a mi hogar
Y por mirar al mundo te deje de buscar.

Hoy solo quedan pedazos de lo que soñé
Soñé con el mundo y con ser un Rey.
Mi castillo se derrumba, se va a caer
Sin que yo, lo pueda sostener.

Yo me bañe en tu sangre y te crucifiqué
Y como Judas también te traicioné.
Yo te di la espalda, Yo te renegué
Mas sin embargo sigues aquí de pie.

Sigues junto a mi, Dios misericordioso
Solo falta que te mire para sentir tú gozo.
No importo las veces que estuve en pecado
Sin darme cuenta ya tú me habías perdonado.

De que me sirve el oro y todos los placeres
Si no tengo paz ni en mi alma ni en mi mente.
Ya no busco cosas que sean materiales
Mi alma solo busca cosas espirituales.

Hoy regreso a ti con la convicción
Que me has devuelto tu bendición.
Hoy regreso a ti todo humillado
Pero descanso en paz porque tu estas a mi lado.
