Changing Narratives-On She Goes Podcast

I had the honor of being on the On She Goes Podcast in November. On She Goes is a digital travel platform that helps women of color travel more confidently, more adventurously, and more often.

We had a dynamic conversation on how a Latina girl from LA somehow found herself climbing the world's highest peaks, starting from zero when not being able to run a mile, using my voice for activism, and the diversity that is still needed in the adventure space.

The Power of Breath Sea or Sky

My breath. Something that most of my life I took for granted in a sense. Yes, grateful each day to breathe and be alive, but never really realizing the power it has had in my life or the magic it could deliver. Breath is life and freedom and love and salvation all in one. Breath is an incredible instrument for healing and growth if we give time to cultivate the concentrated practice of it.

So Here I Am

Written for She Ventures May 2018. The time leading up to those events was a deep period of transition and transformation for me that started back in October 2017. Life took a lot of twists and turns, some expected and some not so. If I am honest though, the past 10 years have been a period of transition, transformation,  and reinvention to shaping me into the woman I am today.

Our Greatest Adventure

What is our greatest adventure? We are living it, right now, today, as we speak...it's called life.

My relationship with the word "adventure" has changed over the years. It's no longer just the act of being on an actual adventure, but a way of life. Adventure is of mind, body, and spirit elevated and expanded to new potentials within ourselves.

Solitude + Stillness

I can thank entrepreneurship for helping me appreciate quiet moments. As a founder, life can seem like a crazy roller coaster jumping off one ride onto the next. Constant calls, meetings, being on the road, often times lack of consistency or stability-whew it can wear you out. When you actually just get a moment with yourself, it's a little treasure.

Movement and Ritual

Movement has been a necessary ritual in my life for over a decade. What that looks like varies day to day. Turns out movement is the ultimate emotional boost! Having a bad day, feeling depressed, feeling anxious? Move your body even for 20 minutes...those awful feelings start to melt away.

Filling Your Heart Instead of Your Pocket

Life is a series of choices, a journey and not a destination. When is the last time you made a major life decision/choice based on whether it would bring you joy? If you are like me, about August this past year I came to the shocking realization that the answer for me was never. All of my major life choices had been made around having purpose, life fulfillment, life bucket lists, accomplishments, but never joy.

The Solo Traveler

There have been a lot of moments the past 4 days on my scooter riding on desolate and very dodgy roads, swimming in the sea with no one else there but me, or hiking down trails that warned people the "trail was broken" when I kept looking around and saying out loud, "thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Perfectly Imperfect

I walked down the stone steps and arrived here. Looking out, smiling, perfectly imperfect, realizing how a series of wrong turns can still help you arrive to beautiful destinations not only literally, but within your heart.

Transition. Change. New Beginings

And so it's time for an adventure! When life has been screaming at you to make a change, you have a choice-to listen, or keep on the same path knowing in your heart it's wrong. 
At the end of September I gave away 80% of my things (don't worry the 20% is my gear 🙂), got rid of my rent controlled SF apartment with an amazing view, and spent the last month on the couches of many dear friends as I traveled around the country to bring She Ventures to life alongside some amazing women that are game changers and living their truth to bring adventure, wellness, and community to the world around them.

Adventure and Transformation

It's amazing to look back and remember those moments that set your life in a new direction. I often say Adventure changes lives. I say so because it changed mine over a decade ago when curiosity peaked and I decided to take an indoor rock climbing class in LA. Little did I know, it would set me off to climb some of the world's highest peaks and on a journey of self discovery, growth, and entrepreneurship.

Focus on the Rise

My first stop was a solo attempt of Mt. Blanc. In the end, it was a failed attempt due to altitude sickness in a 24 hour push and I ended up having a massive fall when I was just about to rejoin the lower trail that resulted in surgery in October. YET, the biggest learning was the whole time from the fall to post recovery of the surgery, I was always focused on the RISE!

Changing the Face of Adventure

Adventure has the power to change lives. I know so, because it changed mine. There was a time where I could not run a mile, where I had never spent a night under the stars, where my perception of what was possible was in a sense limited. Luckily, slowly but surely the beauty of nature and adventure made it’s way into my life in my 20s but really in my mid to late 20s when I was overstressed with business school, working full time, and had multi-hour commutes. Adventure became my way to preserve balance, sanity, and creativity.
