Big Dreams

It is crazy to think your wildest dreams can come true. But guess what? They can! I don’t know what happens to some of us that we stop having hope. But propose a challenge. Believe that you can accomplish what you set your mind to. It is unbelievable how inspired and determined you can become after thinking this way.

I always want to be involved with fashion somehow, and I have the opportunity to do so with my own Chloe and Isabel Boutique. I love the fact that I feel in control of what I do. Creativity runs wild, when it comes to running my own business. Earlier this month I did a mini photo shoot and It felt great. That was just one wild dream come true, and it happened because I said “why not?”.

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the most amazing ladies ever. She was a very dedicated nurse who retired at age 71 because she wanted to make sure the person replacing her was the absolute best. She was loved by all her patients. As a nurse in the oncology department, she started Christmas parties for her sick patients and her parents. Now it is a tradition that every year is done at that hospital. She mentioned to me that you don’t only treat the patient, you treat the whole family. How amazing of her to do so, when it is so incredibly hard to comfort a family with a sick child. From experience I can say these people like the nurse I and many in the giving professions must want to be able to help. From the bottom of their heart their dream must be big. Big dreams of being able to make a difference in society. Dream big, and spark the light of someone after you. The job is not done until it is done right, so there should be no regrets. Life is filled with possibilities and we must remember to make giving one of them.

It sounds crazy to think theres people who bake for their neighbors every week, and knits clothes for underprivileged newborns after a stroke, but the nurse I met did. She kept saying she had a wonderful life, and partly was because she had big dreams and she made them happen. Helping others is what kept her going, and that made her utterly happy.

 

Whatever it is that you want to do, make sure it is big. Make sure that you aim high. So when you look back you know you tried; you left a footprint in this world that will be remembered.

 

Have Hope Always,

Maribel

Running motivation

Many people want to begin running as an everyday thing. Many of them however, don’t. Motivation is a big factor to starting and continuing. I have been a runner practically my whole life. Since I played soccer (midfielder) running was absolutely mandatory. Running is not only for the fast runners, or the super fit. Running is for everyone! All you need is motivation and you will learn so much from it. 

These are some running tips I use:

1. Make a “pump it up” Playlist: Music is a great way to hype up the energy. I really like to start of by listening to some of my favorite happy songs that really make me feel motivated to be “on top of the world”. I think many people have those songs where they feel really good after listening to them. Those are the ones you should add to the “pump it up” playlist. 

some of my favorite songs on my “pump it up” playlist include:

– “On top of the World” Imagine Dragons

-“Demons” Imagine Dragons 

-“I won’t give up” Jason Mraz

-“Let it go” Demi Lovato 

-“It’s Time” Imagine Dragons

-“Good Life” One Republic 

-“Culo” Pitbull 

-“Vivir mi Vida” Mark Anthony 

* The last song is in spanish but either way it has a great beat and rhythm to it that I am sure will make many happy. So give it a try! 

2. Wear work out clothes you like

Wearing clothes that you like makes you feel confident and even more motivated to go out and pass by people with your happy self. Even if you don’t have your dream body, remember that your letting the world know you are confident to go out and run because you are working towards that goal. If you learn to be confident to work out in the body you have right now you will go out there and actually work out! I really enjoy wearing fitted running pants because I feel like I look better after every run. Thats just me so figure out what works for you. 

3. Endurance should be your first goal

Many people get caught up on the milage, but in order to get there you must have endurance. Endurance gives you motivation because each time you want to do a little more. Just push yourself a little and that is how you build endurance. Soon you will get to where you want to be. 

Running is such a great way to relieve some stress and really feel good about yourself. The important thing is to stay healthy and happy. 

Have Hope Always,

Adventure out!

It is so important to get out there and do things. Excitement is essential for happiness. You have to learn to love your life, not the life you want. It is a very hard thing to do. One thing to do is be adventurous! Let those crazy ideas run free. I think it is so much fun writing down things you want to do in your bucket list. That creates so much excitement. After creating a bucket list, take on realistic item and go out and do it. Do not wait for the perfect time, because now is just great! That’s the thing about being adventurous you have to just do it. Once you do something that you have always wanted to do , you will feel different.

That different self will feel happier, excited and love life.

It is so simple to get carried away with negativity but in order to get out of it, you may want to step a little out of your comfort zone. Remember life is precious and life is whatever you want to make of it. So enjoy it.

Have Hope Always,

Maribel

Another Happy Day

Sometimes life hits you hard and you feel like everything will continue to be negative. For many it is like a snowball effect. It keeps rolling getting bigger and bigger. The snowball effect works either way though; for negative thoughts and positive ones. If something negative comes along, be strong. No that does not mean to hide your feelings. Show them! Get the strength from those awful feelings! Don’t like being sad? Then get angry at sadness. If you don’t want to feel like that again you don’t have to! Use that anger to be happy. Tell yourself you will not let another negative event or thought take over. Let positive energy be the product of the anger towards your sadness. Yes be mad that sadness can take over like that. You wouldn’t want anyone you don’t like to invade your house so why would you want sadness to invade your body, mind, heart.. Only you know how strong you truly are. Believe in that strength you once used to pick yourself up. Take that strength and take it wherever you go. Hold on to it, and treasure it. That my friend will take you everywhere you want go. It will take you to happiness. Let yourself be carried through life as the strong person it has taught you to be. 

Have Hope Always,

Maribel.
