La Vida Prana by Elisa Beatriz
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” - Dr. Maya Angelou
I’m inspired by the women in my life. They are genuine and amazing warriors.
I thank my ancestors for infusing passion within the core of my being.
I thank my tribe for holding me together and cheering me on when the going gets tough.
My life has been like a dance. Sometimes I sit it out and others I take to the dance floor with my best foot forward.
I intend to find the things that are liberating and astonishing to the women that sleep within me.
I am on a journey to discover new languages, lands, and people. I have lived a thousand lives.
I’m not lost. I’m no longer looking to find myself. I’ve always been there. I’m getting out of my way. Putting my fears to sleep. Living a full, passionate, flavorful life. The many women in me are roaring and waiting to escape.
May we all find the passion and the strength to get out of our way. May we continue to create and re-create as many times as possible and necessary.
Listen to yourself. Ask yourself “What makes me feel alive?” Take that and eliminate what makes you miserable. Start there. Clear out the clutter and live a hygge life.
Use your past, present, and future as a roadmap. Every step that you’ve taken matters to your final destination. Do it with ‘Sabor’ and don’t let anyone tell you it’s wrong!
We are going to start living for ourselves. So, get in, we’re on our way to somewhere special!
Blogging & Things
May 14, 2021
Thank you for visiting my blog. I will be documenting life through visual aesthetics. This is a personal journey inward. This is a safe place to share and create without restraints.
Excuse me while I get a little sentimental with you. I’m just sitting here getting over some dumb cold. I thought I had the “C” word - delta, lambda, cum laude variant. I had a little medicine & CBD and it seems to be kicking in…finally! Anywho - this post is mostly my freewriting contribution for the day! August always makes me feel some kinda way. My grandmother has been gone 13 years as of tomorrow! I can remember this vividly. I lost my comedian, my storyteller, my bestie. I’m also missing more people than I can count. I get all nostalgic right before Virgo season. Birthday this year marks a ton of years piled on and seasoned with varicose veins and a case of knee crackling! I mean, talk about bringing sexy back! What happened to my “30’s” is the new ’20s?!? What’s the ’40s gonna do about this?!? I just need to know! And I need to know now! 😂😂😂 is this the part where I'm supposed to have an epiphany? I’ve been walking around for almost 40 years, lost in the wilderness…this is it, right? I used to avoid bdays like the plague. Ever since Dad passed away, I realized how important a birthday is. It’s your born day and a reminder that you owe your momma more than what you could ever make in a lifetime. It is also a great reminder that you’ve overcome some pretty awesome, amazing, badass, ninja shit! So, as much as I do want to celebrate and as much as I don’t, I’m not a planner and I hate planning BTW…I’m just gonna make sure that day I take it easy on myself! Not everything has to be accomplished by my 40th! At 16, I thought this would be IT! Guess what buttercup?!? There’s more to it and it’s up to you to make shit happen!!!
