Life is full of up and downs I wish I had embraced the storms as much as I did the rainbows. The sun can’t shine all the time. Sometimes you’ll experience darkness just remember it’s not permanent it’s more of a balance. Shine from within during the darkness to create more light. If your going through a hard time I promise something amazing is right around the corner so hold on. You got this ❤️ Love you 🙏🏽

What 1 word would you use to describe yourself. Comment below that word please 👇🏽My word is BRAVE ❤️

✨Power of Ourselves✨
_
We each see ourselves in different ways, pretty, ugly, fat, skinny; it is that self-image that can be devastating. In some cases, the self-image that we have may not be the image that anyone else sees, but us. This is called self-loathing, we want to be like everyone else and don’t see the beauty within ourselves. Other times, how we see ourselves is based on what others say and think of us. What we need to realize is that we hold the power to overcome those obstacles, to achieve dreams and to become the best version of ourselves that we can be. The power is within each and every one of us, we hold the power to control the direction of our lives. We hold the power to push past that negative self-image and make it positive. Don’t give that power to anyone else, don’t let anyone be the driving force in what you try to achieve in life and how you see yourself in this life. Take control and tell yourself that you are beautiful, unique and wonderful, because you have the power to be all of those things and more.

What’s your all time favorite Prince song? Comment below 1 song 💜☔️
_
Purple Rain was released June 25th 1984. I was a kid but I remember watching it in the living room with my mom and dad on the tv. This was a pivotal time for me this movie made me love music. I watched it and turned to my mom and said “when I grow up I want to be Apollonia” not like her I wanted to BE her. It was the first time I saw a woman naked on TV and her curves, her hair, her mannerisms, her drive was goals for me. I loved how independent she was, she went after her dreams and she fought for herself. As an impressionable child I took a lot away from that movie. Turning tragedy into a gift, not letting your circumstances define you and the power to rise above. That movie changed me in a lot of ways it gave me vision and that vision was better than the one I was living. When I turned 10 I saved and stole enough money to buy the soundtrack on tape. I played it till it broke. As an adult I’ve seen the movie over 100 times. When Prince passes I cried like knew him. It was a sad day for me. When my mom passed I played “Nothing compares to you” at her funeral. To this day I can’t play that song without crying. When my mom passes all her flowers in her garden that she loved so much died. It was strange too.

Have you seen the movie? Do you own a Prince album? 💜 Fun Fact I know every word to the soundtrack for Purple Rain.

👋🏽Do you tend to focus on the positive? Tell me one thing your grateful for in the comments please!

I find myself pretending to be who others “think” I should be. I never want to offend others but inside I’m dying to step out and be who I am. I tell myself just be who you are and the right people will come along. Putting that principle into motion from here on out. I will be unapologetic in my authentic self ❤️

🤪What’s the biggest issue you have while eating out and staying on track?
_
Since coming back from 🌺🌊🌈Hawaii I’ve decided to do a Vegetarian 🌱 plant based diet. I’ve been doing this a few weeks now and I’ve been dreading eating out. I was happy to see how many places have Vegetarian options. One being @disneyland they had a jackfruit bbq sandwich 😍 I’ll be posting a full Youtube video regarding my journey and some tips. If your wanting to go 🌱 Vegetarian I HIGHLY suggest using the Herbalife meal replacement shakes. It removes a lot of thinking and stress while keeping you on a plant based protein. If your interested DM me or click the link in my bio and let me help you. 👋🏽

Sunday is for family!! At the happiest place on earth with the people I love. I really couldn’t ask for more! ❤️ Have you been to Disneyland? #disneyland #disney #love #family #hope #believe #joinme

👋🏽What’s one thing you know you need to give up on or let go of?
_
Sunday’s are for reflection so today I’m looking back and figuring out what is stopping me from being where I want to be. I think sometimes I hold on for too long, to relationships, people, jobs, and places. I need to make a lot of changes and get back to the things that made me really happy. I think happiness comes from progression. When we “feel” stuck in a place or situation we get depressed. What changes can I make that will progress my life into a better place? I almost feel like I lost focus of the big picture. Letting go is something I’m working on this week. A lot of change is coming, I’m ready!

Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it? Drop it in the comments

“La Tweety” 🐥 was mine that’s what the called me in Jr. High. I hung out with the cholas and cholos. I wore Mary Janes, teased my hair and loved being with everyone repping our neighborhood. Although I’ve moved on from that life, as an adult I still love the lifestyle, the culture, and everything it represents. We bought this bike to fix up as a hobby. I’m excited to finally get around to doing that. I have ideas for it but we’re gonna hit up a bike show before we commit to a design for it. Never forget where you come from and always celebrate your culture.
_
I used to be afraid to tell people I hung around a gang and I was a chola because of the judgement. But now I’m like “ORALE” I’m proud of that part of my life it taught me so much. The biggest thing I took away was the importance of family and LOYALTY. Blood doesn’t make you family the bonds you create with others makes you family. I still consider some of those girls my sisters! Something so powerful about a group of passionate women standing for something they love! 🙋🏽‍♀️ Part of that I still carry with me today. ❤️

👋🏽Do you ever scroll through social media and feel like changing how you look in some way?
_
Since I can remember I've never been happy with my body. I grew up in a body image of the Dolly Parton era 👀 Big boobs. I remember as a child in Jr high stuffing my bra with my best friend. From a young age I had a negative self image of myself and my body. I always wanted to follow the fads I saw on TV and magazines. I covered my booty with a flannel and stuffed my bra as a teen. 🤷🏽‍♀️. As soon as I turned 18 I got breast implants and when I turned 21 I got bigger breast implants which I now regret very much.
_
You would think after the breast implants I would feel better but no then I started obsessing on the cellulite on the back of my thighs. I would pick out small things about myself that I hated and I would obsess. I never looked in a mirror and though "Yes I look good" I only saw the bad or what I didn't like. I don't look at photos of myself to because I'll be sad that I feel like I look ugly or fat or I'll find a flaw. I have tried every yo yo fad diet on the market before I discovered "meal prepping" and proper nutrition. Only a few years ago I feel in love with the “feeling” of healthy rather than the fads of appearance. On a side note, I’m happy “booty” became a thing lol now I can embrace it rather than hiding it. As I scroll through social media I sometimes feel the pressure to fit in. Maybe I need blonde hair, colored eyes, lighter skin or smaller boobs? 😂 It’s normal ladies but just know YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!! __
God created me perfectly, I am most beautiful when I feel it, not when others approve of it. Beauty is within and it shines through you. Beauty is a perception and everyone will have a different opinion on what that is. You have to know your beautiful and understand not everyone will see it but who cares. Don’t dim your light because it’s shining in their eyes. ☀️ I’ll still play with wigs and contacts because it’s fun. I love dressing up but I never lose sight of how important inner beauty is. 🙌🏽 You can change your appearance if it makes you feel beautiful but don’t change it to convince others your beautiful. ❤️

🙅🏽Stop letting people tell you “you can’t do it” and talk you out of something you really want.
_
People will always try and talk you out of something they can’t do simply because if you do it then it shows they are capable. They would have to face the fact that maybe they have been making too many excuses or they are just lazy. If you want something go after it no matter what anyone says. Believe in yourself, you don’t need validation from others to accomplish what is important to you.

The best part of pushing through negativity?

The best part of overcoming those negative comments is that once you get to your goal you reach back and pull others up. Most times the people who said you couldn’t do it or talked negative about your goal will be the ones asking how. You will be an inspiration to others, you will be the light in the dark for them.

⏬Have you ever had a goal you gave up because someone talked you out of it? Share in the comments please. ⏬

When I made the decision to compete in NPC all my social media followers said “You can’t do that” I almost believed them and gave up. I decided to push through anyway. I learned to be my own cheerleader. My goal was to get on stage and prove you can do anything you put your mind to. I went on stage and won my first show I took home 3 trophies that night. In the process I was able to give so many others hope and that made the struggle worth it. I learned so much through that journey.

💁🏽‍♀️Where are you from? I’m from #corpuschristi #Texas born and raised. 🌊☀️🏡

👋🏽Where is home to you? Does it have to be where you were born? 🤱🏻I feel like home is where my heart is at. ❤️I haven’t lived in Corpus Christi in decades and I absolutely love it there. 🌊It’s seen so much change things that were familiar to me are now gone. Some great memories some not so much. I’m not close to my family that lives there so I don’t visit much anymore. ✈️I’ve moved a lot over the years, I’ve lived in 🍁NC, ⛄️Minnesota, 🌵Texas, ☀️California, 🥨Philadelphia and 🌋Hawaii. California always feels like the most familiar in regards to home. Los Angeles is so wide spread if you want a change you can go from Valencia to San Pedro and poof it’s totally different but still LA. 🌇

Most recently I moved from LA to Kauai, Hawaii 🏝my brother and his wife live there and love it. I moved last October but after about 6 months I decided to move back to LA. 💔 It was a tough decision to come back, there are so many things I love about the island. I feel like my heart is there I just love the island. For this time in my life I don’t think I can live there but I miss it so much. Hawaii feels like home to me even though I’m not from there. 🏄🏽‍♀️I’m looking for a summer home on the island and I’m excited to see how I can combine LA and Kauai. 🎇Life is too short to not make yourself happy even when it seems impossible. Eventually I’ll end up there again sometime in the future on a permanent basis. ❤️✨ #kauai #hawaii #beach #islandgirl #islands #islandvibes #bikini #home #texas #love #goals #family #hope
