I had been going back and forth with the decision to start one because of the time it takes to upload but I got Javi to teach me about this website thing and now the poor guy is without a laptop.. BAHAHA. He always goes along with my ideas and well, thats why I love him HAHA! (insert big smiley face here)
So a BLOG.. What do I plan to do with this thing? What am I going to share? How often am I going to BLOG?
I don't know!! Thats the whole point of a BLOG right? There's no set flow to this, I intend to come in here whenever my little heart.. wait scratch that.. big heart desires to pour out to you guys whatever I want. Let me tell you that I'm SOOO excited!! I love writing and even though I'm not a grammatical expert or anything like that, I do enjoy writing and expressing myself so besides my Instagram posts and instastory shenanigans I will be on here to give you guys more insight into my life, into my mind. Get ready for lots of run on sentences, spanglish, some curse words, and lots of HAHA's cuz well, its my BLOG and this is where I get to be myself right? HA!
I know many people are curious about my life though. I get questions all the time...
"Erika, how did you quit your "safe job" in banking to do HERBALIFE?!?".. "Erika, how are you SO happy and positive all the time?!".. "Erika, how did you get those results and does Herbalife REALLY work?!".. "Erika, when are you and Javi gonna have a baby?!?"
ALL of these questions are questions I get a lot so I have plenty of material to talk about HAHA, but today I just want to introduce myself to you guys and leave you all with a little something that I've been thinking about lately.
What does LIFE mean to you? Guys, I observe, I'm a HUGE observer and looking around and analyzing people I have come to the realization that most people don't think their life is very important. Most people think that living isn't very fun and they do nothing but complain and stress about every problem in their life. It's really sad and I think its something we can all help eachother with.
Yeah, lets be real. Life is not easy. Living is not easy. It takes work to live a good life. It takes effort to be happy. Its easier for us to stay in our depressed state of mind, to stay playing the victim and let the days pass by us in this state but let me ask you.. how does it make you feel?
Feeling down, depressed, negative and sad doesn't FEEL good and we all know, us humans love to feel good. It's why most of the world is obese, turning to food to "feel" good is one of the biggest problems we are facing now in our population. Drinking alcohol and smoking is a way to escape and "feel good". We all just want to feel good! BUT, how Erika? How do I feel good in a "healthy way"?!
Changing your Mindset!
You might be thinking.. Oh come on! Que mindset ni mindset (I have a cuban background so bare with my Miami spanglish haha)
But... it is 1000% truth. No pills are going to help you THINK differently. No food, drinks or medication can do that for you. In order for you to start living a good happy life you must first work on the way you THINK. I had no idea about this and for yearsssss I kept wishing and praying for a better life. I kept doing the same actions and expecting a different outcome. I never realized that I had so much power to change my life if I just learned to shift my way of thinking, my way of seeing life, my way of handling my problems.
I discovered this new way of living in Herbalife.
I had never heard of the word Personal Development but once I was exposed to it my mind set off like a rocket into a whole new world I didn't even knew existed. For 3 years now I have worked on my mindset EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And my whole world has shifted for the better. I was told to read "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne and from the moment I did, my life has never been the same (that will be for another BLOG entry in the future).
So I want to leave you with this, if you knew you could change your life by simply working on your mindset.. would you do it?
