Life doesn’t always go as planned but please restrain from whining. Don’t you dare to feel sorry for yourself.
Past cannot be changed, edited, erased, forgotten... it can only be accepted.
You can ruin your present and future if you don't find the courage to let go.
Always focus on what you can do and change now, focus on what's best for you and your children.
We can’t change people, either we accept who they are or start living life without them.
The only person you can change in this life is you. I am so proud of who you are, of what you have achieved, and of who you have become -specially in these last two years.
If you hear people talking about your past, keep in mind they are talking from a person they don't even know anymore, from a person that doesn't exist anymore.
You have evolve, you are a new and better version of her. Most people are stuck in a perpetual identity crisis.
Some people come into your life as blessings, others as lessons. Understand that and move on.
Nobody is responsible for your happiness. You are. Only you. Stop giving people power they don’t deserve.
You know that you are very lucky person? You have much more than others. Just look around... If you have chosen the wrong way, just turn around. But I can see that you are already in the right path. So just keep walking with that smile in your face, proud chest, core tight and holding in each hand Emi and Andres.
Whatever your story is, it doesn't define you.
You are you, not because life or people made you that way, it is because you choose everyday day to be you. You choose to love, and never give in to hate. You choose to be grateful for all blessings. You choose to forgive because you know you deserve peace and freedom. You choose to see beauty in everything and everybody. You choose to be loving and kind first. You choose to be better than yesterday. You choose people who choose you.
The overflow of your life directly impacts on your child’s world view. Being a single parent is twice the work, twice the stress and twice the tears but also twice the hugs, twice the love and twice the pride.
You have all you need. You are only lucky mom. Love, you.
