Chatting over coffee : chapter 1

When I first started this blogging endeavor I, like we all do, had all hope in the world.
 I wanted to write every day, wanted to learn more, to meet more people and to really become more in every sense of the word.
I wanted to be that change and to become that change I so eagerly looked in this world for, but (isn’t there always one) I got caught up in the prettiness of blogging. The numbers, the likes and even the comments, and somewhere along the way I forgot to use my voice. I forgot why I started this in the first place.
And I got on this train, well actually, I followed every train that left the station headed somewhere, and 6 months into this adventure I pretty much felt a little lost.
It was only a few days ago, after a very hard day that all of this hit me like a ton of bricks. It was a pretty exhausting day at work, Bella was just topping off the points on the don’t list and I was so tired of putting her in timeout that even I needed one.

 I put her to sleep after crying my eyes out and took a very much needed bath. Completely relax with a book in hand I encountered the One and Only with my truth. 
The truth that hurts even just thinking about it, I wasn’t being honest with myself, and that is all going to change. I want my social media channels to truly represent me, to be like a picture of my life. My very messy yet beautiful life!
As I hit my 6-month blogging mark, I also want to accomplish my mark in this world, my mission and one of the biggest reason why this blog came to be. 
I realize I had never written this down and I’m more than ready to do that now, 6-months down the road, but better late than never.
If we were to meet in real life this is how I would introduce myself if we were to chat over coffee
Hi, I’m Claudia Estrada, Bella’s mama, and Lester’s wife.
I’m a Christian, business owner and dreamer. 
I was born in Cuba and raised in Texas.
When I was little my mom use to tell me I lived in la-la land and sometimes I still think I do. 
I love holidays, decorating and crafting.
I always color inside the lines, but every once in a while I will go outside, just to remember that it is and it will always be ok.
I dream of writing and even recording videos of our daily life. Of having a journal to look back on one day. 
I’m a total people pleaser, I hardly ever say no and when I do you can always change my mind. 
My heart is in serving, my Lord, my family and friends.
I hope you follow me on this journey and be on the lookout for some changes to this little corner in the following months.
So as they say, this just got alot more personal and I hope you enjoy it just the same if not more!

    Loved this. I need to go back to just documenting about memories and things I want to remember. Ps I so wish we could meet for coffee- I feel like we've become friends. That is one thing I love about social media- I've got a mom tribe I never would have if it wasn't for Instagram
