One of my favorite quotes of all time is ” lo que es para ti, es para ti “. It means ” What is meant for you, is meant for you.” My mother says it all the time when speaking to me about my goals, successes, and what doors might open up in the future for me. For me, this quote holds a tremendous amount of meaning because I have seen firsthand how it has manifested itself in my life. It has altered the way I perceive risk-taking and has opened me up to make difficult choices. What I admire about this specific quote is how straightforward it is. It’s simple enough to remember and is easily applicable to most of life’s situations. Read more>>

One of my favorite quotes is “Everything happens for a reason.” This saying is the backbone of my life philosophy and I live by this mantra daily. It helps to keep me focused on the positive, and it empowers me to trust my intuition and take calculated risks trusting that some good will be the result. Thinking this way helps me to look for the good in every situation… especially in those moments where the “good” may be the most challenging to find. If you believe in the idea that everything happens for some higher purpose, you begin to see things differently, and that can help you to better cope with and navigate through life’s difficult moments. Aristotle believed, and I agree, that all our life experiences are “designed to shape and reform [us] into the ultimate and highest version we can ever imagine ourselves to be.” I trust that every experience, good or “bad” will ultimately make me a stronger, more confident version of myself who is prepared for whatever is ahead.
