Years ago I was taught by Pilar Ortiz, a well-known Hispanic public speaker, that it was possible to direct our lives by assigning a word to each year. I have done this a few times, but have not been consistent. As I have been reflecting a lot towards the end of 2023, I have come to the realization that I want to thrive again. Therefore, I am choosing not just one word, but two: Faith and Action. I have told my daughter that “If you want a different result, you know the rest of the quote” and I feel that after the pandemic, I was left with lingering effects in my mind.
The truth is, my mind has had enough and it is time to come back with a different approach because change is always beneficial. In 2024, I plan to renew my faith in God and humanity by contributing to 501c3 organizations such as those that focus on preventing women abuse, eliminating children’s hunger, and helping senior citizens. It is also a great year to finish trainings, projects, and look for new work opportunities. I will keep you updated on my new journey.
See you soon!
