For the last couple of weeks I have been reading “What is in the way, is the way” by Mary O Malley. I take my time with each chapter trying to absorb every word. It’s one of those books I never want to finish.
She calls the voice in our heads a “storyteller” and the more I pay attention to what goes on in reality and what goes on in my head. Im pretty sure I could call my voice the “Mexican telenovela”. It sometimes makes me feel terrible over just the idea of things happening! It sounds crazy just sharing this words. But its real. Most of us have created a voice so loud that it keeps us away from what is really going on.
For me it started when I was 8 and my sister showed me how to handle my Dad when he was upset. She said “just sing a song in your head”. That’s exactly what I did, my Dad could talk for hours and I had absolutely no idea what he was saying. The problem was that the song never stopped. It grew louder and developed a personality of its own.
Lately I have learned that I’m not the story in my head. The more present I become in my life. The more I show up for my life. The more I like who I am.
August was coming to an end and I really wanted to keep my promise to make a post once a month. So for this month’s post im sharing a face mask. It’s all about showing yourself a little love.
Avocado Face Mask
2 tbsp oatmeal
Mix everything and apply to your face and neck. Wait 15min and wash away.
Ps. I have a confession to make. Im the only mexican that hates cilantro and avocado.
