While there are many famous women to look to for inspiration, I’m blessed to be surrounded by them in my everyday as well.
One of those women is my hermana, Marian. She is intelligent, beautiful; a free spirit with a huge heart. She has many talents and passions; she is an artist who writes, takes amazing pictures, and loves to paint.
However, a little over a year ago, she realized that something was missing. She devised a plan to work toward her true calling: holistic medicine and healing. She set a date for when she would throw herself into it full time, and that seemed like enough…at first. It soon became a yearning she couldn’t ignore, so she searched for a way to make steps in the right direction. She soon found a 8-month intensive course that would result in a certification as a Holistic Health Counselor. So instead of putting it off until the timing was “perfect,” Marian kept at her 9-to-5, and took on this program on the side. She gave up her weekends, studied hard and blossomed into a sage and nuturing advisor.
This weekend she celebrated her completion of the program. I am so proud of her and her personal growth. I think she is an example to women everywhere that when there is a will, there is a way. Marian got out of her own way, and threw herself into her dream. She reminded me that your path doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be purposeful and passionate. Congrats, hermana!
