A couple of weeks ago, I completed a half marathon. It was an amazing feeling. Yes even after running many of them since 2012. This run was meant a lot to me because when I originally signed up I was excited but as time got closer I wasn’t happy about it at all. Then the week of the race game and I debated on whether or not I would run it but then remember that I paid for the race and I didn’t want to lose my money by not showing up. I debated running all the way up until the night before then woke up the next morning with little motivation to do so. I got dressed grabbed my running gear and drove to the race site. Seeing the other runners, hearing the music playing and being surround by other crazy people like me, I started to believe that I could actually do this. Once the race begin I knew there was no turning back. I ran at my own pace and I even walked a couple of times and before you know it I was a mile away from the finish line. Done get me wrong there were times I wanted to quit and times that I questioned my self on why I didn’t train for this race but it was too late to dwell on those thoughts. I put all of that behind me and told myself I could finish and I did. Sometimes in life you have to believe in yourself and finish what you started even when you don’t think that you can.
Today’s Reflection: make a list of things that you don’t think you are prepared to finish and believe in yourself that you can. You won’t know unless you try. When you believe in yourself you will be amazed at what you can do!
Happy Saturday 💋

Who is She?
I am a Wife, Mom, Daughter, Full Time Employee, Friend and Change Agent that has been succeeding, failing and winging it for years. Although I am not perfect, I do know that God has been guiding my path along the way in each journey. No matter how good or bad my experiences may be or have been, I know they serve a purpose. What is that purpose? To show you that you are not taking this journey called life alone.
Over the years I have met phenomenal women with stories that you would not believe unless you heard them yourself. I created the SheSpeakz platform as a way to “Speak Life” into ourselves and those around us. SheSpeakz is a way to tell our stories and encourage women to embrace their journeys. At times it may be uncomfortable but there is someone who needs to hear your truth. I love meeting other people, listening to others about their life experiences, making connections and helping others make connections. When women collaborate with and support other women, amazing things happen.
Some of my passions are leadership/personal development, empowering women to be themselves, mentoring, public speaking, baking, traveling, writing my blog and spending time with my family and friends.
I currently reside in the San Antonio, Texas area with my spouse and our two active children.
My call to action for you as a reader is to embrace who you are and know that you are enough. We all can use a little improvement in some areas of our lives but don’t let that stop you from loving yourself and being the best you. I also ask that you take the time to encourage and support one another. In this delicate time, we can all use positivity in our lives. I also ask that you are intentional about making a positive impact in the lives of those around you and in your local communities. Use your talents that you have been given to change the world one good deed at a time.
