I couldn’t pass this day without sharing another great blogger and an even greater post! If I may remind you, Jubilee and I collaborated in creating Dear 15 Year Old Me Tag – if you haven’t read that, you must and if you’d like to participate – please do!
This post touched my heart and touched ‘home.’ I know this isn’t an issue women face, but something that both men and women struggle with – weight. The topic of weight, weight loss, weight gain, is a serious topic and one that needs a greater voice. As a teen I had image issues, I’m a Spanish girl and with that comes areas of my body that as a teen I refused to accept. Therefore, in return I made it my mission to do everything possible to lose weight. It was a downward spiral, vicious and dangerous. I went as far as using laxatives to lose the weight. Thankfully, this horrible routine didn’t last long. Today I’m in a better place, I remind myself that this body has incubated, nourished, and carried six healthy babies. And no, I’m no where near a size 2, but my family, my babies don’t see their mama in numbers but rather see her with love. They will love me as a size 2 or 20 all the days of my life.

I was nominated for the ‘Three Day Lyrical Challenge’ by Happymess Happiness and today is day number two. I enjoy all genres of music and it’s hard to say which would be my favorite. So, in this challenge I also wanted to include a Spanish song because, well, I do speak Spanish and enjoy anything from Romeo to Juan Luis Guerra, DLG, Grupo Niche, Son By Four, Eddy Herrera, Luis Enrique, Rey Ruiz, Giro López, Hansel y Raul, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Basilos, Monchy y Alexandra, to name a few. Do you know any of these, was it nice to have gone back to the good ‘ole ‘old school’ songs, you know?! They’re my favorite!

This song is so loving, it speaks about how love can make you feel, so unpredictable and yet also get you so tangled, so confused and trapped even when you want to get away – and can’t. It’s a kind of love that can be compared to a toxic that gives you such an effect that’s hard to let go but even then, it’s what you want and you wouldn’t have it any other way. Have you been there, have you felt this kind of love? I think it’s worth having felt this love – at least once in your lifetime. Enjoy.
