I have never had a blog before today I honestly didnt have a clue about what I was going to write about in this first post, but here it goes.
When I wake up each morning before any thing else I take a glance at my self in the mirror. Today is the day I ask myself why? I guess I do it not only to make sure I’m still alive and everything is where its suppose to be but also to kind of ask myself: Im I happy?, What have I done lately to better my life or someone elses? Is this what I want for myself? the overall point of this is to see if I’m happy with who I am, who I have become and who I intend to be.
I find it difficult sometimes when I answer these questions. I start off with the normal things like, I’m a strong Latina woman, Im a UB student, I’m a suicide prevention worker, and I’ve lived in the same place for the last 20 years. I try to really dig deep into my soul to find things out about myself that I usually just leave alone. I feel like this is a good opportunity for me to see not only what I think but what we all think when we look at our self in the mirror each morning.
At the moment I feel content about my life and what Im doing with it. I love what I go to school for, I love my job and helping people appreciate their lives, Im proud that I can say Im stronger now and can honestly say that the only thing I dont like is this city I call a home.
I will always look to a mirror to find myself for a second, to alow my self time to appreciate who I am and to continue to remind myself that there is always a goal to fulfill.
Take the time to realize what your goals are, are you happy with what you have chosen for yourself? Is there any thing you want to do differently? Take the time to think about it, it really helps me figure things out sometimes.
