For the longest time, I believed that I was the black sheep of my family. I would make my mother and sister wrong for never “getting me.” It was a perpetual narrative that I played in my mind…over and over again. It kept me from having a deeper connection with my sister and mother. You want to know what the worst part was? I really believed that I was right. Have you ever told yourself a story so many times that you start to believe it’s the “truth?” How’d that work out for ya? Well, if you had a similar experience to mine..then it SUCKED. Because:
I alienated myself I made my family wrong I never believed I was “enough” I rejected their love I was cold and abrupt
The day that I realized that my story was a big fat lie, was the day I was set free. Click play to learn how to choose your response when you feel stuck in your family story.
Once you watch the video, I would love to hear: Next time you are with your family, how will you now choose to respond? What do you learn about yourself and why you get triggered?? I’ll “see” you in the comments below!
I never quite understood why I was given the life and the opportunities that I was given, when somewhere across the world, across the city, heck, even across the street, there is a woman (or man) with the same abilities and desires, and that for whatever reason, can’t seem to make his/her wishes come true.
Do you remember when you were a kid and were told to make a wish right before you blew out your birthday candles? Or maybe when you were walking on the sidewalk you would see a bunch of dandelions and blow out the little furry things and make a wish?
Remember when making a wish didn’t seem so silly and rather, just made sense because, as children we believed that anything was possible?

Have you ever felt like when something happens in your life and it’s just “too much” to handle that everything around you seems to come to a massive halt?
I know the feeling. I made a joke the other day that I was a walking talking pain-body and I was surprised that I even managed to get through the past few weeks the way I did without completely losing it.
If there is one thing that I FOR SURE know, it is this. Pain and progress can coexist. Now I’m not saying that you should go ahead and bulldoze over your emotions or whatever is going on in your life.
I’m inviting you to consider that YOU are stronger than your pain. And no matter how hard or difficult of a situation you may be in, that you do have the capacity to handle it.
After all, our life didn’t just happen. Our thoughts created it. Our beliefs created it. Our actions created it. So if that is truly the case, we have the power to change it.
Part of how I deal with my pain is to keep progressing in my life no matter what. So ya’ll know how much I love spreading my message so I reached out to Val Santos, a radio personality over at The Beat ATX (102.3) and pitched her an idea to collaborate on.
I present: Vas + Val: The High Road.
Hey!! Hope you’re doing well and had a great weekend!
I love this time of year. First, I’m a May baby and that’s literally around the corner (I’ll be turning 34!!), second, it’s tulip season and tulips are my favorite so basically, I’m in full spring swing.
