~I’m laying in bed. And these thoughts go through my head ... “ get up ... you’re so lazy... you are a failure .... don’t you think it’s time to clean up, be more productive? .... did you walk the dog?.... your so fucking lazy .... unacceptable, this is why things aren’t happening ...
Kristina...😑 move your fucking ass!!! ”
And then I’m like “ wow wait ~ a minute why am I being so judgmental of myself ? Where is this coming from?
When was the last time I shut down my mind ~my brain 🧠 & everyone else out and just recharge ~ rest ~ reset ~
•why do I set these high daily bars, chores & standards & then judge myself if I don’t accomplish them ? •Why negativity instead of observation of your own true self ?
•Self judgment is entrapment of your own minds vicious cycle that can lead to self doubt , depression, negative thoughts and affirmations , no motivation, cortisol release , weight gain, insomnia
•Observe why you need this rest, charge yourself for new beginnings and new accomplishments!
•But most importantly realize that you need to treat myself with more love ❤️ & kindness ~ less judgment & standards~ let yourself be & just flow ~ Namaste 🙏🏻✨🌞🌙
If you truly want to grow spiritually, you'll realize that keeping your stuff is keeping you trapped. Eventually you'll want out, at any cost. You will then realize that Life is actually trying to Help You. Life is surrounding you with people and situations that stimulate growth. You don't have to decide what's right or wrong. You don't have to worry about others people issues. You only have to be willing to open your heart ❤️ in the face of anything and everything, and permit the purification process to take place. When you do this the first thing you'll see is that situations will unfold that hit your stuff. But, in truth that exactly what's been happening your entire life. The only difference is that now you see it as a good thing because it's an opportunity to let go. #untetheredsoul#collective#awakening#let#go#ego
“It was 1985. My mother, the oldest out of 8 siblings, flew to the United States from Jalisco, Mexico at 6 months pregnant with me. She came to follow my father and brought my brother alongside. 3 months later I was born, my parents were divorced, and my mother was left alone with 2 kids, no money, and no job. Nada. Here it was. Her American Dream.
I'm Patricia. A first generation Mexican American mujer born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I'm the first person in my family to ever be born in U.S. soil.
My family arrived to the U.S. shortly after I was born, May 1985. It was 14 of us living in a broke down 1 bedroom apartment in Montebello, Ca. We were living like sardines; one sleeping next to each other, occupying every corner of the space. Not safe at all, yet something about it made todo este desmadre feel normal and homey.
I was raised by my grandmother and all the other mujeres in my family. They are leaders, fuertes, luchadoras that also live a life of sorrow, with much emptiness, and regrets. My mother used to make $3.75 an hour which needed to feed all of us. Pura locura! She came to this country not knowing English, with no education, and no money. She made it work while enduring all the emotional pain.
Growing up, I began investing my time in dance, not knowing what I would do with my life, or if I would even attend college. I knew I needed to do something that made me happy, but was not sure what. I kept dancing regardless of my family's disapproval. My grandma always said to me: "I don't understand why you constantly are in school cuando puedes trabajar para tener dinero"
Something inside me kept retrieving back to dance. In 2010 I finally decided to pursue Dance as a career. It was a challenging road, still is, but nonetheless, I wouldn't change it. I've learned to be okay with my family unrecognizing what I do because the importance of what I do I believe in.
My name is Patricia Huerta and I am the first mujer to be born in U.S. soil, attend college, and to act upon the saying: A LA FREGADA! I'm dancing and will I continue to question, search, ask, create, learn, experience, and strive for difference en mi and in my art.”
Meet Patricia “Patty” Huerta: “Patricia Huerta, from Los Angeles California, is a dancer, choreographer and educator. She has been dancing and teaching for over fourteen years and is currently a full time dance teacher at Juniper Elementary in Fontana, Ca.
Patricia received a B.A in Dance and an M.F.A in Experimental Choreography from the University of California, Riverside. She earned several scholarships including the Dorella Anderson Scholarship, M.F.A Graduate Fellowship and U.C MEXUS Grant which granted her the opportunity to research and dance in Guadalajara, Jalisco and Tijuana México, including her participation in México City’s Festival de la Improvisación Danza Contemporánea.
Patricia's works and collaborations have been presented at RedCat, FLACC Festival, Highways Performance Space, Human Resources L.A, Home L.A, San Francisco, Arizona, and Mexico City.
She has had the honor of working with Milka Djordjevich, Wendy Rogers, taisha paggett, Julie Freeman, Vicente Silva Sanjinez, Alejandra Ramirez, Lux Boreal and with her collective Primera Generación Dance composed by Rosa Rodriguez- Frazier, Alfonzo Cervera and Irvin Manuel Gonzalez.”
Today we browsed around one of our favorite stores, and while picking up all of the mugs they had displayed, we realized just how spoiled we are with big handles that your whole hand can slip through. We snickered at trying to hold the mugs with two-finger handles and then came back home with more appreciation for the handles we craft. It’s the little things, isn’t it? ☺️💗

There is something about a room full of people that share the same passion to make you feel ontop of the world!
I dont have the words to explain how it makes me feel!! When the world seems to become heavy, chaotic, stressed and you think that you are a few steps away from being completely lost... seek the knowledge, support and understanding of others on the same path and HUGE things can be accomplished. I admire and appreciate everyone of you exactly how you are!
