A LITTLE BIT OF PERSONAL
I was born Colombian, and my native language is Spanish. I currently live in the Buffalo area. My schooling in psychotherapy was all in English.
My husband and I are passionate about doing things in life. After our current "day jobs", we encounter great pleasure and fulfillment on house flipping as a side hustle. That's why nails might never be in classic French, and you will find paint traces here and there!
I used to be a fine arts teacher in college in my country of origin. Now that I am not teaching, per se, I paint and create art. I love to "play" with construction, sewing, and designing tools. Reading is another pleasure which I bask on. With the technology advances, I am an audiobook junkie.
Being active is an important part of a good life, in my opinion. I enjoy bike riding, swimming, traveling, and exercising at home, specially in winter time. Taking aside space for meditation and relaxation, silence, or a little bit of qi gong also make part of daily practices.
I have been rewarded with amazing friends wherever I have had the opportunity to move. My friends in different parts of the world are the family that my higher intelligence's plan put in my way, and I exercise great pride for having them.
I firmly believe that happiness exist, not as an absolute, but as an attitude, and a way of life. Life may give us pain, but is up to us to navigate the challenges, re-emerging, standing tall and resilient. We can create moments of joy, and it is up to us to create that empowerment.
