Hamlet Vibes ✨

Polonius:“This above all: to thine own self be true,And it must follow, as the night the day,Thou canst not then be false to any man.Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!” (Hamlet, Act-1, Scene-III, 78–82)

Thoughts on Journaling

By: Gabriela Yareliz Some days ago, my boyfriend and I were walking, and we made a pit stop at my apartment. I needed to relieve my tiny bladder, and we were hungry and ready for a meal. I remember I went and used the bathroom, and when I came out, I saw my journal, whereContinue reading “Thoughts on Journaling”

The Beyoncé Series

By: Gabriela Yareliz Our Beyoncé series is up. I am putting the songs we looked at in each post here for easy access and tabs. “Crazy In Love“: Dangerously In Love (looking at Beyoncé’s debut album, Jay-Z’s presence since the beginning, and infatuation). “Irreplaceable“: You Must Not Know ‘Bout Me (looking at Beyoncé’s brand of feminism,Continue reading “The Beyoncé Series”

Necessary Rage

“Forgiveness to me is not me forgiving you. I don’t have any godly power. Forgiveness is a gift that I give myself because if I would live in hatred today, I would still be a prisoner, and we are the prisoners of our own mind. The concentration camp is in your own mind, and theContinue reading “Necessary Rage”

A Word On Prayer

By: Gabriela Yareliz A lot of resources and messages have come together for me pertaining to prayer. I feel this is no accident. It’s like God is trying to teach me something new in this season. Something more effective. A better connection with the authority and power of Heaven. Throughout the week, the phrase “takeContinue reading “A Word On Prayer”

Types of Breakups

By: Gabriela Yareliz I’ve noticed there are breakups that are for the best. We almost sigh in relief as witnesses, with the involved parties. But then, there are breakups that change the course of life and time as we know it. There are ruptures that leave a rip in the universe. Harmony ceases and theContinue reading “Types of Breakups”

Choking on All Our Contradictions

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s the age old story– good girl loves bad boy (let’s face it, there are “bad girls,” too). The movies are chock-full with this storyline– Princess Mia had a crush on Josh, the boating moron, and not the nice guy next door. Not only are movies and tv shows saturated with thisContinue reading “Choking on All Our Contradictions”

Go in Peace

By: Gabriela Yareliz I think we have all found ourselves in certain types of prison in 2020, and by this I mean a place that confines us, where we feel up against a wall. Maybe our wings feel clipped. Maybe we feel afraid. I have been reflecting on all the pain people around me areContinue reading “Go in Peace”

Erwin McManus: The Futurist

By: Gabriela Yareliz Erwin McManus is one of my favorite thought leaders. He is a pastor, philosopher, writer and futurist. I identify so much with how he communicates Jesus and authentic faith living. Born in El Salvador, McManus has overcome so much. Christ found him, and since then, he has dedicated his life to sharingContinue reading “Erwin McManus: The Futurist”

Hispanic Heritage Month 2020

By: Gabriela Yareliz It feels like autumn. It’s like 2020 said it was ready and someone flipped the switch. The temperatures have dropped to crisp cool lows. If only someone could flip a switch and make the neighbor above me shut up. It’s like he thinks he is competing in American Idol every minute ofContinue reading “Hispanic Heritage Month 2020”
