La escritura, es cuando no soy de aquí ni de allá. •••••
Escribir es cuando queremos que el mundo entero escuche nuestra voz interna aún si no pueden vernos.
Escribir es comunicar.
As a new blogger I admit to always wanting to have the “perfect” feed. Perfect pictures, captions, and hashtags. BUT this is me in real life 😂. Unless I’m going to an event/church I’m almost always in a T-shirt and a cap. Nothing special or spectacular, but this is me! Behind the scenes, putting in the work, and loving every minute of it. ❤️💕 I hope everyone’s day is going great!
Parte de mi historia ha sido creer que nacimos para ser felices, más yo, me refiero a la felicidad integral, la que surge del encuentro propio.
Entonces mi gran búsqueda ha sido conseguir esas herramientas.
No se trata de suerte, ni de ser hijos de padres perfectos, ni de haber nacido privilegiado, se trata de herramientas, de poder tener el conocimiento y saber usarlo.
De llegar a conocerte, y a partir de ahí transformar esos aspectos propios que no te dejan avanzar.
La visión, la forma de verte y de ver al mundo, los vacíos y la forma de darle respuesta.
Entonces, ame esta imagen, que aquí les presento el día de hoy, porque todo está en las herramientas, teniendo las herramientas el cielo es el límite.
Sometimes even the things we blame on the devil you’ll later be thanking God for.
I recently heard this in a message by Steven Furtick and it’s been settling in my heart ever since.
When you truly think about this statement it brings a perspective shift. It makes you look at things that are hard as an opportunity for God to be even bigger.
I know my God doesn’t cause bad but I also know the enemy wants to stop me from my destiny. BUT and I mean BUT GOD is bigger.
Anything the enemy tries I know God will use it for my GOOD. My purpose and destiny in His realm.. not my own. “So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.” Romans 8:28
I’m done stressing, worrying and trying to understand things and situations that aren’t for me to understand. My focus is solely on Jesus and no matter what comes I know victory is mine.
“Having the dream is easy. Making it come true is the hard part.” ~ Serena Williams •
These next two weeks for me are going to require a higher level of focus and commitment, but I’m creating a plan and holding myself accountable for the execution!
What are some things you want to hold yourself accountable for as we wrap up the month of February? •
New blog post is up! God has a plan for you. He has a plan for all of us! It is so amazing to think that He knows exactly what is right for us and what we need to do with our lives. He has created a unique path for every person to follow ✨ it is okay to plan for the future of what you want to accomplish, but remember, His plan matters more than anything else. Not ours. The future doesn’t exist yet. Be present in the moment, be present in today. Don’t worry about tomorrow, it hasn’t come yet. Wonder, what do I need to do today or what does God need me to do? What am I called to do? 💗 What has God called you to do? I would love to read responses 🎉
Just reflecting deeply and being grateful. Sometimes I forget to smile... I get easily connected with my mind and tuned in a high volume of thoughts. I’m glad that I’m learning practices to support my daily life, such as meditation and yoga. The most important is: even though I don’t smile as often my heart is full of love and gratitude.
So for today: let me practice: ❤️ Smile more 🥰 (just a thought that I’d like to share)
That’s a problem because my lashes are very important to my beauty business and very dear to my ice cold heart, so how could I be so oblivious?

Have you ever asked yourself why?
Why do we let someone else define OUR beauty? Think about it. For years, we have allowed the media or our social groups to tell us what looks best - whether it's what size body is the best, what hair style is the best, what colors work best for our skin tone, what outfits works best for short girls vs. tall girls, and frankly, just so much more. It's no wonder why most little girls grow into women who lack confidence and have a low understanding of what it means to fully love and accept yourself.
For example, I was actually nervous to wear the outfit I had on when I took this picture. I asked myself questions like:
Does this outfit make me look dumb?
Are other people going to think I look weird?
Would this look cuter if I was taller?
Like, WHAT?! I had to stop and look at myself, and say "Caysea girl, you are your own person. If you feel comfortable, if you feel pretty, if you feel good in this outfit, THAT IS WHAT MATTERS." Because ultimately, this is my body and I decide what I put on it, in it, and around it. I decide what makes me beautiful. I decide what shape makes me feel the best. I decide what outfits make me feel happiest.
Girlfriend, I get it if you compare. I have been comparing myself for years, but I am here to tell you to let it go. Let go of comparison, of judgements, of fears. Start walking with a confidence only you can carry because only you can be the one to learn how to be comfortable in YOUR body. So go ahead, love that body of your's - it's absolutely beautiful. You are absolutely beautiful...just being you. #youdefinebeauty #loveyourself

I was sitting inside my favorite London café as the rain danced upon the glass windows. My tea was slightly cold, and my head felt heavy. I mindlessly tapped the end of my pen on my journal as I watched the waitress sitting across from me break out into the largest smile as her phone buzzed on the golden surface of the square table. Her face seemed melancholy minutes before this sudden interaction as her giggle echoed through the empty space. She blew kisses into her phone screen, and when the screen went black, her eyes held a glimmer that only love can create. In that moment I felt my lips fall as I realized that some lack the love we all crave. I wanted her smile to never fade. I watched strangers pass the glass window in front of me as I counted all the frowns that passed by, 15 in 7 minutes. In that moment I made it my goal to make 5 people smile that day. I started with the waitress who handed me my tea, and I watched her smile glow as her shy eyes thanked me as I left. I came back a couple days later and I think she remembered me. I ordered my regular chocolate croissant and she slid it over with the words, “I picked out the largest one for you.” The small gesture was warm compared to the atmosphere around me. As I inserted my card to pay for my croissant I could feel her eyes on me, as I signed my receipt her soft words hit me, “You are very beautiful.” At first I didn’t catch her sentence because of her thick British accent, but then I smiled. I never truly feel beautiful and I’m not sure I ever will, but what matters is the subtle kindness from others. Strangers are mysteriously beautiful and I wish that moments like that happened more often. It’s always the subtle moments that turn out to be the most powerful.

💁🏼♀️ Heute ging der ganze Tag daneben. Es war mein erster Arbeitstag nach 6 Monaten Krankheit und er war nach 10 Minuten beendet. Ein paar Formalitäten waren wegen blöder Umstände nicht korrekt. Ich hoffe ich kann Freitag bzw Montag wieder durchstarten. Ich war ziemlich aufgeregt vor dem heutigen Tag aber alle haben sich gefreut mich zu sehen, das hat mir die Angst genommen.
Ich freue mich also richtig auf meinen ersten richtigen Arbeitstag sobald er kommt 🤩
☀️ Had afternoon of sunshine and daffodils this Sunday! (There was a moment of maybe 10 minutes of random hail at one point yesterday, that was weird) 🌼
I made a quick stop in Pike Place Market to grab a bouquet of flowers before heading to my two photoshoots planned for the day! There were ton of people in long black parks with coffee in one hand, VERY Seattle, lol. Although just slightly cold I still wanted to dress up and add a burst of color to my day! So, I put together a Simple Black Tee + golden yellow skirt! I almost felt like a BEE! 🐝 😇
