Friendships Are Important
In this episode, I share with you how to make sure your long distance friendships stay strong. I share a little more of myself since I live far from my childhood friends. Our annual reunion is a good way to reconnect. We all ensure we do things throughout the year to stay present in each other's life. I highly recommend you pick up the phone and make that call or send that text. There should be no judgment, no competition, just honest, real friends keeping connected. https://www.instagram.com/amigascafe/ https://www.amigasycafe.com/ Amigasycafe.buzzsprout.com

Everything is Figureoutable
So, as we are closing out the year, I share with you personal lessons, I have learned, especially in the last few days of the year with lots of travel. Listen to this episode as you picture the Home Alone scenes of the family running through airports and losing their son Kevin. Fortunately, I did not lose my sons but we all chuckled as we understood that Home Alone movie didn’t seem so unrealistic any longer. The good news we did make it to our destination, but it was with lots of creativeness and flexibility. The timing of things in our life sometimes don’t make sense, but then we understand why we encounter them. I had just read Marie Forleo’s book, Everything is Figureoutable and thanks to that I was able to figure out how to navigate the different problems we encountered. I knew my goal was to make it to our destination, and we succeeded. https://www.instagram.com/amigascafe/ https://www.amigasycafe.com/ Amigasycafe.buzzsprout.com This is the author and book I reference. https://www.marieforleo.com/

Teaching our Children about Mindfulness and Gratitude Ep.014
In this episode I share with you ways to teach our children about mindfulness and gratitude, and I explore some personal experiences where I have been able to use them as a teaching opportunity. It is not necessary to make many changes but one small change a day can have a huge impact on others. A good rule of thumb can be; Did you do something to help another person smile? Our children are small but they see our behaviors and our habits therefore, if we create positive ones we are impacting our community and ensuring we are leaving it better than we found it. http://amigasycafe.comhttps://www.instagram.com/amigascafe/

Family Traditions are important, and they can help you bond with your children. Ep. 012
This week, I will talk about my own experience building my own alter, and understanding that sometimes traditions happen throughout the year. The traditions do not only occur during the holiday season, but sometimes the holiday season does make some of our traditions more popular. I share about my own son, building his alter for a school assignment and how he immediately thought of honoring his great grandmother. Think about what traditions you have and want to make sure you pass on to your children or younger generations. What are you doing to document those down?

Crush the last 72 days in the year? Ep. 011
In this episode, I continue to share about more speakers after attending Influencer 2019. It was so inspiring, motivational and it definitely, helped me refocus on my own goals I have. This conference was so empowering, I truly believe everyone should attend. This will help you learn from those that have achieved their goal, but it gives you tools, so you create rather than just compare yourself to someone's story. The Professional Speakers I talk about in this episode include Brendon Burchard, Anthony Trucks, Jamie Kern Lima and Eric Thomas. I truly believe if you are feeling like you need a little push these names will become your mentors. Remember a mentor doesn't have to be in the same room as you.@brendonburchardhttps://www.instagram.com/brendonburchard/?hl=en@anthonytruckshttps://www.instagram.com/anthonytrucks/?hl=en@jamiekernlimahttps://www.instagram.com/jamiekernlima/?hl=en@etthehiphoppreacherhttps://www.instagram.com/etthehiphoppreacher/?hl=en@liavalenciakeyhttps://www.instagram.com/liavalenciakey/?hl=en
