Real Talk with Hortencia
"Life can still be beautiful, meaningful, fun, and fulfilling even if things don't turn out the way you planned."

We have come to accept “challenges” as a part of our societal norms. Some challenges, I will say, are stupid and dangerous but others contribute to a greater cause and give to the well being of others. TODAY, I challenge you to give to you – that’s right – I’m calling you out on a challenge.
I’m challenging you to a lifestyle change, a change in which you condition your mind to focus on the positive, on the part of the glass that’s half full, on the pleasant conversation, one that person that held the door open for you, and on all the things that have made your day great. This lifestyle change starts in your mind and once you have conquered your mind your body will follow. Your mind and your body will reconnect and will find peace and harmony.
Step 1: you must believe that in the crappiest of situations there is a positive – FIND IT AND FOCUS ON IT!
Step 2: do not allow a day to end without looking in the mirror and parsing yourself for a job well done. It doesn’t matter if you must stand there for a while because you can’t find what to praise yourself about – REMEMBER STEP 1.
Step 3: make it a point to surround yourself with positivity, did you already make up the excuse that this isn’t always possible? – REMEMBER STEP 1.
Let’s make this the challenge that creates the energy we’re hungry for – that positive energy that feeds our mind, body and soul.
"Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success."
