Growth

By: Gabriela Yareliz This month, I’ve been reflecting a lot on growth; personal growth. What it means to be a lifelong student. I’ve been learning from people like Lauryn Evarts Bosstick, Ed Mylett and Ryan Holiday (all personal favorites in the podcast and writing sphere). You may have noticed that this month I was veryContinue reading “Growth”

June 2019 Insights

By: Gabriela Yareliz The insights of the month of June. The insights come to me in between the walks past the bakery that just opened, with its “Grand Opening” funeral flowers, getting elbowed in the face while exiting the train (almost broken glasses– nerdy much?)– only to find the permanently broken escalators of the trainContinue reading “June 2019 Insights”

An August Photo Diary

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello, friends. Here we are. At the end of another month. It has been one of a lot of growth for me, I feel. One of those months where you feel the way gum looks when you lift up your shoe, and it is stretched into little strings. Expanded. Here are someContinue reading “An August Photo Diary”

This is how 2017 began

By: Gabriela Yareliz It began with a kiss from the most amazing man, after I had stuffed my face with grapes, per Spanish tradition. I was surrounded by my loved ones, and Antena3 TV Española was blasting in the background. Squeaky, the cat, had gone missing, and the night was humid and dark. On theContinue reading “This is how 2017 began”

Radical

By: Gabriela Yareliz No one is born knowing. I like this saying. It reminds me to be patient with myself when I am facing new circumstances and learning to deal. Sometimes, I place an unbelievable amount of pressure on myself. This past week was an intense week of “learning to deal.” It was draining, emotional,Continue reading “Radical”

Reflections Before Bedtime #85

A remix of what is in my brain… Don’t see yourself through the eyes of others. There will be times where others will think you have suffered a great loss, but you are actually winning. And there are moments when you look like you are winning, but you are miserable. Diane von Furstenberg (paraphrase) “ThoseContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #85”

¡Gracias 2015!

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am about to fall asleep, and I probably won’t wake up until it’s time to see Dilip, Prateek and Harshul. I can’t wait to see these guys. ❤  (This is why sports reporting is the best kind of journalism. You watch a good game, get inspired, watch and travel with amazingContinue reading “¡Gracias 2015!”

Monday Inspiration: November 23, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz This will be a simple, no-frill post. I don’t have too much to say. I know. Rare. Maybe that is a lie, though. We’ll see how long this post ends up being. This weekend was pretty introspective. Apparently, I appreciate the art of making myself uncomfortable. So, after a weekend of lovelyContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: November 23, 2015”

“Adulting”

By: Gabriela Yareliz “Adulting,” that is what Feliz calls the act and state if being an adult. That awkward world where we pay our bills, we monitor our accounts and only get substantial vacations for maternity leave. It’s only awkward to us because it’s foreign to us. It’s weird when suddenly you aren’t living offContinue reading ““Adulting””
