I really have no idea why this number is affecting me in any way. After all it's just a number...maybe it's because life is flashing before my eyes and I can't make time take a break. My mother moved to the U.S. in 1984 at the age of 36. At this time she had been married 12 years, had 4 children and was so much a woman. She was so independent, her decisions were her own and no one dare question. I, on the other hand feel like a kid. I always have family questioning my every move and decision and worse, is that I feel that I have to answer to them. 2009 so far has been very much about breaking that cycle. 34 is about bringing many plans and dreams into is my bucket list:

  1. TRAVEL TRAVEL TRAVEL....every chance I get, everywhere and anywhere (leaving on 7/17  for an overseas adventure)
  2. Find/create a job I love
  3. Actively pursue UCHUVA or let it go for ever (did jewelry for a wedding...)
  4. Be more generous and present to those around me
  5. Have a constant prayer/meditation practice
  6. Let go of 25lbs my body/mind is resisting to let go (6 lbs down...)

Hola Giselle, he leido algunas cosas sobre ti y te felicito por, por tu hijita y por la felicidad que reflejas.

Mi nombre es Kathy de Perú, tal vez seamos familia y es mi interes escribirte por que mi papá tiene primos en Colombia el cual perdió contacto hace mucho tiempo y bueno él quiere saber de ellos desde hace unos años pero no ha tenido suerte, tal vez esos primos que me cuenta sean tus padres o abuelos TAMINEZ.

Espero estes interesada en contactarme.
