Growing pains

It took me a lot of personal growth from that day until today. A toxic and unfulfilled job was the last drop. I was anxious, sad and all of that contributed to me to become physically ill. That was a LIGHT BULB MOMENT - Life is too short to be lived like this! I took a break and started doing the things I really enjoyed. Drawing, creating graphics, create a business Instagram account. I’ve also started to meditate and be more aware of the energy that was around me.

I was broken, my self-confidence was down the drain and all of this had to be rebuilt! It was Christmas time and when January came a natural decision was made. I’m going to pursue the life I love.

Fast forward to the present days I’m now living the dream, I’m achieving the goals I proposed for me. I’m a graphic designer and social media strategist and the best part: I have my own business, this means I’m able to spend more time with my family and have the balance I always dreamed of!

I absolutely believe that we grow from the challenges life throw at us, and personally, this past year has been constant learning for me. For many personal reasons, there are no words to describe what is to build a business in the middle of a global pandemic, while homeschooling my 7-year-old and grief the loss of my dear father who departed suddenly in February. But still, in the middle of this painful experience, I was able to build this new path with him looking over me.

As part of this process, it was fundamental to have the solid support of my husband. He is always the first rooting for me, and believing that I could achieve whatever I put my mind on.

The reason why I’m sharing this personal story is that I want you to know that it’s never too late: to study, to change careers, to find a new path, to turn your life upside down! If you dream it, work on it. Just wishing is not going to make the trick. There is hard work behind the scenes, blood, sweat and tears but it’s all so fulfilling.

Along the way don’t forget: keep smiling, be positive, be kind to you and others, forgive, and work hard.

Everything is possible
