Face it and live boldly!

I spent the afternoon today gardening and listening to music. While I was repotting the sunflower seedling, one of my favorite songs, “No Creo en el Jamas” by Juanes, started playing on my phone. At that moment, I smiled, feeling the blessed assurance that I will, just like in years past, face my fears of starting something new and pursue my dreams with courage and enthusiasm. Here is a link to the song with lyrics:

Tomorrow is my first official day at my new job on the farm and I will admit I was, and probably still am, a bit nervous and anxious, but through reflection and talking with friends, I’ve come to understand that this is perfectly normal. My new supervisor and mentor believes in me so much and tells me I will do great. And this is encouraging. As was having an entertaining time at the farm open house this weekend and feeling the positive energy from everyone. But what is most important, is to continue to cultivate a belief in the power, love, and wisdom within me and live connected to my true self. 🙂

Smiling and making pizza

They needed help making pizza and I said sure, I’d help out. Yes, I was nervous, but I jumped right in and had a great time.

Namaste friends. Have a happy, healthy, week!

About Magaly L.

Five Facts About Me: 1. I was born in El Salvador, grew up in NY, and after being in the United States for almost 33 years, I finally became a citizen in 2013. I was super excited when I voted for the first time! 2. My personal favorites: chocolate, desserts, dancing, the beach, leisure travel, reading, juicing, gardening, cooking, spending time with family, and writing. I really do love chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate, but any chocolate is better than none. I also love red velvet cupcakes from my favorite bakery in NYC, Two Little Red Hens on the Upper East Side. And I love spending time in nature. There's something so peaceful about listening to the birds or listening to the waves break, that centers me in the present moment and reminds me that Divine order is at work in my life. 3. I come from a large family and I love it! My parents, two brothers, one sister, LOTS of cousins, aunts, uncles, abuelos, and my "gotitas de amor"-my nieces and nephews. 4. I am an educator both by training and at heart. 5. I have been living with PNES (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures) since 2007. Though this condition has been life-altering and challenging to live with at times, it has also led me to a more fulfilling life, strengthening my faith and helping me have the courage to pursue my passions and chase a couple of dreams.
