Keep the Love in your Heart

You are enough… There is no one like you in this world! In days that your feeling down, remember to keep your head up high and think back on all the hardships you endured and today are just a memory!

We are all special in our unique ways…. we all have different ideas and perceptions that bring out the best of this world! Just keep on being yourself and doing the best you can! It’s with our differences that makes us a whole! Some people might not see the same as you do but that’s ok because as long as our differences doesn’t hurt anyone in the process we all can live together accepting one another! 

Keep the love in your heart! ❤️

Look at Me

 

I work in a Construction Union in the Administration Department and we have a lot of members that are women that unfortunately somehow still feel discriminated because of their gender. I wrote this in hopes that one day we all could see each other as individuals and look beyond genders and see people as people! 

 

 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see a girl frightened away?

Or do you see a person waiting for just one chance to be accepted for all that comes!

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am a fighter! A survivor! I build structures and design dreams! 

I am waiting to fit in! To show this world that anything is possible! 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see my struggles day in day out that I’ve overcome and all those setbacks that I’ve endured.

Take a walk in my shoes, see the world through my eyes.

You’ll see my strive to keep going resulting on my best comebacks

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am stronger now because I believed in myself! I woke up and realized that life is worth living 

That as Lou Holtz said, “life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it”. I choose to move forward!

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see all the storms that I’ve travelled through…The rain doesn’t last forever and the sun will come out and I will shine through 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see my biggest victories come from my hardest pain

When I thought I couldn’t continue I gave it one more shot 

Here I am, in this big great nation

Which was built with lots of sweat

Look at me! 

What do you see?

Do you see that all my hard work and dedication 

Will finally pay off and be appreciated as a team regardless of my race gender religion or sexual orientation 

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am a mother and daughter but I am much more than that 

I design highways and of build houses

Work from dusk to sunset

Manage my house and keep the peace 

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am here to serve a purpose 

To be the voice that you hear just before giving up!

To let you know that when someone says you can’t show them how it’s done! 

I wasn’t always that way but I fought hard 

Beyond many sleepless nights and many broken dreams that just needed one more try to come true

Life is all around us! Construction is life! We are all bound to each other sculpting our dreams one day at a time!

When someone doubts you, keep going! Prove them wrong! 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Determination to change the world one Brick at a time!

Bring it back to Life

Everything starts from within… our thoughts, our beliefs, our feelings all from within. We all strive to be better and live better… We all want to be happier yet we think happiness is gained after a large amount of money, or a big house, or a position of management in that corporate ladder but nothing guarantees us we will be happier… With everything comes a price…. 

We hold high expectations on others to make us happy… and yet it’s an inside job! Perhaps the reasons why so many people are not really happy is because they are not living in the present moment and keep comparing themselves to others… But we are not defined by what others do or don’t do, or think about us… 

Everyone has their own Journey and purpose…. Perhaps if we look deep into ourselves we will find the things that we love… hobbies that once were part of our existence and dreams that have long been buried away and bring them back to surface! It might be that you love to write and somehow have lost touch of your motivation and inspiration…. Or painting was always a passion of yours and somehow you forgot about your canvas! Whatever it may be….bring it back to life! Only then will you be truly happier! ❤️

It’s Never too Late

As the year is slowly coming to an end… most likely we didn’t see the time pass by! It’s like we started this year and now we are getting ready to prepare for the next one that’s about to come! Where has the time gone?

As I reflect back… this year has been full of surprises! Some good and some not so good! Some filled with laughter and many filled with tears! Although it’s coming to an end, have you accomplished all that you set out to do back in January? Did all your nights be spent doing the things needed to lead you into the right direction?

Perhaps you needed an extra push and motivation…. Whatever the case, you still have some days before things start to really take a toll. Life is busy! You are busy. We are busy! Occasionally we get distracted from time to time, by people, circumstances, electronics, tiredness that we leave our to-do list on the back burner thinking we’ll have more time, but will we really?

Everyday we are given another day to work on our goals… but somehow things get forgotten and so life passes! But it’s never too late! ❤️

Keep Learning

They say knowledge is power… that is particularly true… When you know a lot, the power of what you do with your knowledge lies in you…

Education doesn’t start only in school but at a young age at home… it’s not only what you learn in school but what you do afterwards. Learning doesn’t stop after you finish school but continues on. We are constantly learning until we die…

Some say that the greatest teachers is life! That you learn the real lessons out in the real world with your life experiences… You learn real life skills with your triumphs and defeats, with your ups and downs, and all the falls until you learn the lessons! You have to be willing to continuously learn if you want to be on top of things. This fast paced world is changing rapidly by the second… if we don’t work hard and learn new skills we are replaced in seconds… There is always someone out there that is willing and able to do your job for a fraction of the cost! Think of that! People are always replaceable at a job…. We have to keep learning…. Keep updating our skills and knowledge! 

When things fail, and at times they do, we can lose money, our home, our car, a relationship, sadly even family but what we learned and lived throughout our life journey can never be taken away! ❤️

Compliment Each Other

Part of being with someone is being ourselves… People believe that being with someone is supposed to complete them as a whole, but the truth is no one can complete us. People are supposed to compliment each other with their similarities and differences….

We can’t put pressure on someone to complete us when ourselves at times are not complete… we go through various emotions on a regular basis and therefore are in constant change…. If we don’t change we’re not growing…. Change is part of our Journey of constant improvement!

A person that’s great for you will support you and push you to be and do better! They will be the first ones applauding you and will give you the space and time that you need to do the things that you enjoy… If we don’t find the time to do the things we love, we cannot bring something new to our relationship. Everyone needs time to do the things that they love, not for their significant other but for themselves. Which in the end, everyone wins! ❤️
