Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

2016 has been a great and terrible year for me. From finally graduating college with a journalism degree to going through a heartbreak. So many things happened. To make things concise, I'll list out the events in two categories. 

Bad things 

  • The relationship with the boy who I thought I was going to marry ended 
  • I couldnt find a job for months 
  • I had to move back in with my parents 
  • I was back in the town I dreaded coming back to 
  • I was lonely

Amazing things 

  •  I graduated from Texas State University with a journalism degree and the first in my family to graduate college 
  • I lost the 20 pounds Ive been wanting to lose and started working out again.
  • I got a job at a marking/advertising firm full time and in charge of big accounts
  • I reconnected with friends 
  • I finally found my inner self
  • I became part of the literacy club in my town 
  • I accepted what life has given me now and I know this isnt permanent 

The saying, "you go have to go through the bad to be grateful of the good" is so true. Also, your mindset does control what your life is going to be like. I was moody, negative, and depressed. I felt like I had no direction. With that mindset, everything was just going bad in my life. One random day though, something just clicked the moment I woke up. It was the first time in a month that I didn't cry. I didn't feel the pain in my stomach or agonizing thoughts thinking about the dull day ahead of me. I told myself no more! I FORCED myself to smile, to pray, and to be grateful for what I do have.  And literally, from that moment on my life changed completely. To this day its slowly getting better and I found my direction in life. 

Think positive, be grateful, be free and wonderful thing will happen, chica.
