I have a thing with my mom when a Spanish movie comes out in theaters is mandatory that we have to go to the movies together.
We always head up to the AMC theater with my mom; she always has to order her big soda and popcorn to enjoy the movie that's her highlight. Meanwhile, I love ordering the Mozzarella Sticks.

First of all, September 15th is El Grito de Independencia de Mexico, which always takes place at night to welcome the Independent day of Mexico on September 16th.
I am a first-generation Mexican American. I am very proud of my roots; my parents, grandparents, and ancestors. I'm Mexican.
Those days are a reminder; of my roots, my culture, and my life.
Yes, in my life, I have been saying, you need to know your roots to understand where your destination is.
We have so much in ourselves from our ancestors. That's the beauty. We can understand or relate to a few things we think, feel, and see. They live in us because of them.
I have been searching a little bit more about my family tree. I am still in progress, knowing stuff here and there and understanding how your grandparents or great-grandparents were; at that time, different timelines, and just a different lifestyle.
That's why always be blessed where we are now. Remember, you have your roots to grow to be the better version of yourself is your choice to keep growing and honor your last names; each of our; last names can come with bad habits. However, as I said Is your choice to change the dirt of your roots to grow in a healthy tree.
I do; have a habit when I go hiking in the forest or any park and see a big beautiful tree that gets my attention of their beauty. I have a habit hug the tree, and saying Thank you is like connecting with that three with yourself. It's a beautiful feeling. I do get emotional, to be honest.
That's one of the reasons I love those days. In my early 20s, I always said, "I want to get married that day, The Independent Day of Mexico, to celebrate my culture and my new journey with the right person to be."
I am celebrating myself of honor being A Mexican Woman Independent on my own feet. Yes, I am an Independent woman. I am proud and honored; to thank my parents and grandparents for raising their kids to be independent to continue to grow.
Be proud of your Roots
Be proud of Yourself
We celebrate Independent for a reason in Life
I'm a Mexican American Independent.

Remember is always best to prepare yourself for any; kind of situation won't be afraid to speak up or tell your story.
Sometimes we close ourselves up just because of these reasons; the negativity we receive from others or putting ourselves down, controlling us, blaming everything on us for their actions and manipulations.
Can be so many reasons we don't open up.
Remember, each of us has a story in life. Please don't judge people. Accept who they are by respecting them.
We have all been through a situation in life.
However, the key is we keep trying to go forward and working on our downs.
I am also talking on my own. The way I speak, my accent, my grammar, how I pronounce words and learning to speak up. I want to say; that my story and my; experience motivate people who have been in deep depression/self-doubting themselves and much more.
My goal is to motivate people with the actions and experiences I have.
Don't lose hope. Giving time for yourself to connect with yourself is hard at first.
However, once you do it, you will feel amazing; and have a lot of courage by making that action you did and saying it loud and proud.
I did it!!
Give; yourself a lot of credit and keep doing it.
I agree. Sometimes we feel down or self-doubting about something, but it's ok. Most of the reason is your heading to a different level of life is another challege you need for yourself. Trust me. I am at that level for the next mountain I am hiking in life. Keep on pushing. Remember, we can't be dependent on people to make us happy.
Keep on pushing.
We got this!
Just remember, Give yourself credit by trying and providing everything to yourself.
Don't lose yourself. Be the best of yourself.

On Saturday, July 17, 2021, I went to Alosta Brewing in Covina. I joined the Heidi and Frank show on 95.5 FM KLOS for the Release Party of "Dig Tussy" Vanilla Cream Ale, a Summer Beer of 2021.
I went with my good friend Mario he is such a loveable, caring person. I met him begging of August 2019 in Covina, CA. We have so many in common with our family from Mexico, music, concerts, hiking, activities, etc. Boy, I learned so much about him.
I did have the opportunity to take a picture with Frank Karmy. The first thing he said, "what's your name" I smiled and said, "Nancy" or "Nanz" I don't remember.
It was a good vibe that night with good company.

On Tuesday, July 12, 2022, in the morning.
I noticed the full moon on social media. I was curious about it; I started to search online about it.
First of all, this month. I have been listening to an audiobook of "Inner Engineering A Yogi's Guide To Joy from Sadhguru."
When I searched about the Full Moon on youtube, Sadhguru was talking about this.
That same day I went for a walk in the park at night with my friend. It was a perfect night capturing the full moon. If you can see the pictures I took below, you can see a ship sailing the moon while I was power walking. It reminds me; of the Peter Pan movie.
Now, On Wednesday, July 13, 2022, after work, I was preparing myself to blog and share my sailing the moon pictures while I was listening again about the full moon video that I shared with you in this blog.
While I was listening to it and talking about the full moon while I was waiting for my friend to come to go, hike the mountain to enjoy the full moon
If you listen again; to the video, Sadhguru mentions,
"if you area sailor means somebody who wants to go somewhere. Sailor means who's always logging to go to a new place."
When he mentioned I was surprised, he said it because that's who I am. I am always seeking a new place within me.
If you are also a sailor, you have to go to a new place within yourself, and on top of that, he also mentions,
" The full moon day and the new moon day are significant for you waiting for that to happen that's a day you would like to launch your new ship"
I was like WOW!! Everything is making sense, the stuff I've been going through and trying to connect with myself again.
Sometimes in life, we have so many responsibilities, and we lose ourselves most of the time taking care of others; however, we have to balance our life to continue being; a sailor to go where we want to go.
While I was listening to that and ready to share my sailing moon pictures, it made sense what I heard and saw. What do you guys things about this story? I would love to read your opinion on that.
Check out the pictures; I took that night of the full moon (July 13, 2022) once my friend and I were on top of the mountain drinking champagne to celebrate life and a new place to be.
