My semi anti-Valentines Day post

Today I couldn’t help but to be annoyed by overwhelming Valentine’s Day social media posts, balloons and the impromptu flower shops outside grocery stores. I had to ask myself why?

My reaction when I found out I was pregnant was not what you would expect

The day I found out I was pregnant wasn’t at all how I would have imagined it. I didn’t feel how I thought I would feel. I cried so much but not because I was happy, I was terrified.

Pedir perdón al corazón

¿Cómo nos sentimos cuando se nos rompe el corazón? Sentimos que no podemos respirar. Se siente como si estuviéramos encerrados en una caja sin salida. Tratamos y tratamos pero se nos hace imposible salir. Gritamos, lloramos, nos enojamos y queremos desaparecer. Nos sentimos aplastados, completamente rotos de mil maneras. Deseamos que sea diferente, que no … Continue reading Pedir perdón al corazón
