Been Thinking…

Lately I have been thinking a lot about many things in my LIFE.

The one that has stayed with me has been my 1 year review at work.

Every time I think about it, I can’t help but  think that our futures and visions

are manipulated by our boss or people around us.

Why would you let a person dictate what you are good at or not?

Or why would you let someone De-rail you from your path?

I realized that I have let so many people at some point in my life

do that to me. Starting from my mom, family and even co-workers.

I only blame myself for it, not them. You need to speak your words

and follow your path no matter what obstacles you may find. As I sat

 in my store managers office and heard him give me my review feeling like a

death sentence and what I should do, I was fuming!

All I did, was listen and deep inside what I really wanted to say was:

” Who are you to tell me what I should follow or not, or weather I’m ready

for my next step or not”.

 I only know if making that move would be a wise choice or not. And If I feel that

I’m not ready, then I need to be honest with myself and know that I can’t

I’m in a transition of thoughts about what’s about to happen in 3 month

 after I turn 2 years in my job. No more letting anyone tell me that’s not

the right choice, or you can’t make a living as an Artist!

I have a passion for my Visual Merchandising, but along the way

something happened, I tapped into so many different things that

I love to do, I’m good at plus I’ve self taught myself. These new

discoveries are my new passions! These are the one’s I will be following once

my 2 years are over. I want to teach Art Therapy, I want to open my shop again,

I want to keep selling my photography, I want to keep doing my hand made cards,

I want to give back to others with my knowledge and I won’t let anyone this time

tell me what is right or wrong…

PS: Never give up on your DREAMS. No matter how huge, or how crazy they

may sound, it doesn’t matter just keep at it.

We all have a path that’s unique so follow it. It may come with winding roads

and rough terrain, but keep moving. You will find that smooth road

once you get their. And please, don’t let anyone tell you any different

cause only you know, what your SOUL needs… Laz

Feliz Dia De Los Muertos.. “Happy Day Of The Day”

Ever since I lived in New Mexico, I got so hooked on this Mexican tradition. I remember seeing for the first time these alters filled with delicious cookies, sugar skulls, the beloved’s favorite foods and understanding what the celebration was about and I feel in love. In St Louis, I was able to find in an area of town called ” Cherokee st” and is also considered the Mexican town for restaurants, shops and bakery’s that they celebrated this tradition. In New Mexico they go all out with festivities and parades. Take a stroll with me and celebrate The Day Of The Dead…
