On Hold

By: Gabriela Yareliz I just walked by a hot, steamy pile of trash this morning. If there is a perfect way to start a New York Monday, that’s it. On the bright side, I barely missed a pigeon dropping, right in front of me, and the train pulled right into the station, when I walkedContinue reading “On Hold”

What do you see?

By: Gabriela Yareliz I was sitting in court when a court staff member sat beside me. He asked me how my weekend had gone, and told me that now that I am young, I should make sure each weekend is the best weekend I ever had. I smiled politely, taking a break from my NewContinue reading “What do you see?”

Napkin Rings

[Image from @KushaAlagband] By: Gabriela Yareliz I recently read a fantastic post by one of my favorite writers, Candid Kay. It was a reflection on a legitimate fear and problem. It made me reflect on something that has been on my mind, all weekend. My own fears. You see, people do the oddest things. WeContinue reading “Napkin Rings”

Monday Inspiration: March 14, 2016

“Beauty is fleeting, but a rent-controlled apartment overlooking the park is forever.” Carrie Bradshaw By: Gabriela Yareliz I walked 10.17 miles, on Sunday. You can think of me as a champion, a crazy woman– or both. Have your pick. But it felt good.

That Boy

“Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday, you’ll meet a boy who will learn your favourite flower, your favourite song, your favourite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won’t matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does.Continue reading “That Boy”

The Present

By: Gabriela Yareliz History books are filled with what’s important to us. Our victories, our battles, and everything in between. In the book, bad and good make it in. In it, we find things that hurt us; things that surprised us; things we couldn’t control; things we provoked. History books hold our story; half writtenContinue reading “The Present”

Reflections Before Bedtime #26

By: Gabriela Yareliz Walking around here is like walking through a thick stew. It’s warm, thick and pretty much spicy. It’s the land where seashells crackle under our feet, where lizards come out to greet us, and where the sky, even after sunset, is drop-dead gorgeous. We almost envy the stars. The salty air andContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #26”

Monday Inspiration: April 6, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello! I hope you are all having an exciting week, thus far. I am happy to share, I finished my 90-day Bible Challenge (in 75 days). It was so exciting and beautiful.

JOURNEY

Soundtrack to the post: Journey  1. an act of traveling from one place to another. [Free Dictionary] By: Gabriela Yareliz Perhaps, even when we think we are moving aimlessly, things have a purpose; even what seems small, insignificant and random. When we are on a journey, we are moving toward something. Our journey has a lot toContinue reading “JOURNEY”

Your Future

By: Gabriela Yareliz Sometimes, we are afraid of what the future holds. We are usually afraid of things we don’t understand or things we can’t control. Uncertainty. It’s a scary thing. A lot of us like to feel like we are in control of something. It’s that desire to control that sometimes stops us fromContinue reading “Your Future”
