What a weekend! 🌛
This place was the most magical rejuvenating retreat, the gorgeous Kowhai Lodge in a little slice of paradise called Tutukaka 🌿My cup is overflowing!! We created beautiful memories watching the stars from the spa pool and welcomed the new moon dancing all night at @six60 I absolutely love this life I am creating 🙏🏼 #abundance#sograteful#beautifulaotearoa#newzealand
I've had this idea in my head my whole life, that I needed certain things or people to attain certain things. But here's the thing, if I want it, I will be the one to give it to me. Why should I have to bank on and wait for another to give me what I want in life? #scaredbutready#everythinghappensforareason#sograteful
It has now been 4 years since I left my beautiful Venezuela 🇻🇪 and moved back to the U.S.A. 🇺🇸
I boarded that plane with so many hopes and dreams. So many ideas of what I wanted to do with my life and the things that I wanted to leave behind for good.
Sitting on that plane, I felt heartbroken.
I was leaving behind my family, my friends, my amazing job and my motherland.
As much as this pained me...
I wanted a fresh start.
I wanted to have the chance to feel safe using my cellphone while I was out anywhere or driving my car by myself at night.
Not having the uncertainty of wondering is today the day I get killed for my car or my cellphone?
I wanted to go to the grocery store and not find empty shelves. To not have to make lines or visit many different stores to be able to find simple necessities.
What propelled me most was, I wanted to grow and become more independent.
I wanted to have the opportunity to pursue my dreams as a makeup artist and be able to find and purchase products to do so.
So I migrated.
Ever since I got here I have worked VERY hard. I have had many different jobs that have had absolutely nothing to do with the beauty industry. Only a few times have I been able to work in my field and try to follow my passion.
Last year, as I prepared to apply to cosmetology school, God fulfilled my BIGGEST dream when I least expected it.
He made me a mother. 🤰🏽
God has an amazing way of showing us His plans.
It truly has been humbling watching Him work and mold my life.
I should know by now, to let go and leave my life in His hands, because He knows best.
I could not be more grateful for where I am today.
I may not be pursuing that dream I thought was most important back then.
But being a mommy to my little man is the most fulfilling thing I have ever done by far. There’s nothing quite like growing a little human, hahaha.
God steered me in the right direction and I am Blessed beyond belief.
Thank you God for my adoring husband, my healthy happy child, and my loving family and friends.
But most of all, thank You for Your Grace. Even though we truly don’t deserve it. 🙏🏼
I was crushed, eyes swollen, BP thru the roof, distraught, in steps Ed💪. Super grateful, he crossed 3, 4 states Friday morning at the last minute for lil ol' me to get me and my cousin to my Uncle Chic. Thank you mom😚. I was going to drive, but he drove both ways🙌🏾. And we back, I got church in the morning *BJ the Chicago Kid voice*. What the devil meant for evil, God had other plans. When the Lord is your shepherd, things just work out 🙌🏾💃🏽🙌🏾💃🏽. God blessed me with a real one *Chante Moore voice* #ripLC#amazinggrace#hedidthat#sograteful#godknew#damselindistress#betterthanahusband#mystedman 😜😂.
Before we decided to have children, we decided to design the life we wanted for ourselves as parents and for our young ones, and how to give them an exceptional childhood.
As part of that picture we painted, our business needed to be mobile, to be able to run from remote destinations.
This month we achieved that goal. Health Kultcha is officially mobile!
We'll be visiting all our favourite health food stores, stockists, and even running some sourdough bread and fermented food workshops, all from Serenity, our beautiful home on wheels.
First big trip coming up in June 2018.
So much gratitude!
