My Goggles

By: Gabriela Yareliz Tonight, I was transported back to the early 2000s. (I watched How to Deal).

WeContinue reading “My Goggles”

The Sparkle In Silver

By: Gabriela Yareliz I have found a sprinkling of silver in my hair– this is a new thing. I feel like it’s the conversation du jour.

So, today is the day I hit the publish button.  By: Gabriela Yareliz Something I have always disliked is whenContinue reading “Surprised?”

Worth It

By: Gabriela Yareliz Why is it that we quickly forget our value and worth? This happens often when we have kind of pinned our worth on a person, position or thing or when we look around to compare ourselves to others. We must stop looking for our worth to be reflected on us by somethingContinue reading “Worth It”

Where was she when I was growing up, when we were all praying 17 prayers a day for God to close the gap in our front teeth? Mindy Kaling Writer and actress.
