If I can…So can you.

 

This is me….at 4 am…..ready to go to work at my dream hospital!!! Since I was a little girl I always wanted to work in one of the best hospitals where I am from, and Glory to God that my dream came true!!!! Quick story are you ready? I hope that whoever reads this gets inspired, and get their gears going at school. No one and nothing is an obstacle….the only obstacle is you. 

I always wanted to work in the medical field…ALWAYS. However, that dream started to fade little by little due to a few events that happened in my life, and also around a few people that are really close to me. However, I didn’t stop there and I didn’t let anyone tell me otherwise. I had people who doubted me that made me doubt on my own self. I had teachers that told me I would never pass, and then again I proved them wrong. I had “friends” that would say nice things to my face, and stab me in the back.

I had a few family members that tried to play me, and treated me as a joke. Despite of all of this, my faith in the Lord grew, my self-confidence started boosting up, and most important of all I started hearing the voice of God to take care more of myself. I worked at different places, and even a hospital where they literally TRIED to make me feel stupid just because I wasn’t in the same “level” as them. I had a job where old co-workers at an orthodontist made me pick up trash, and TRIED to put a bad recommendation about me. 

I had stalkers…STALKERS and so many haters that their jealousy would boost up in their veins, and you could see it pop in the middle of their forehead. What can I say though? They were my biggest fans because till this day some of them still try to “check up” on me, and they think I have no idea. With all of this, I started working extra hard, put in more hours, cried when no one was looking, and did my very best to get recognized in order to get my name out there. 

Guess what happened? The devil didn’t win, and God put me beyond every single person who ALWAYS wanted to see me down a dam drain. Also, age doesn’t mean you are “old” it means you have more wisdom, it means you get new people in your life that love you who are LOW MAINTENANCE which understand you have a life, it means that you do not let a day get to you, and it means you keep on trying because when you “fail” it just means it was practice. 

It is my 3rd day in which I remember a long time ago during this time I prayed for an environment where I can work in peace, and where people would get to see my true potential. I believe that prayer works, prayer makes it’s way, and God gives you what you need in the correct time. I can say that God has showed me his love, mercy, and his grace! Today I stand proud, with tears of gratitude, with my degree, with the news that I can continue my education at the same place I work at, and with a heart filled with love.

The whole point of being in the medical field, is having one foot in the door of an amazing organization in order to keep growing. Having one foot in the door for more opportunities, and always trusting in the Lord that he will make a way. Today I can say…I made it. I made it because despite of every situation God pulled me out of, and because when I really thought I was about to give up he said, “HOLD IT HONEY I AM NOT DONE WITH YOU!” 

Not only do I work in my dream job, but besides that I also work online as an influencer. I have an amazing team with the Tribe Girls and MHB in which I am an admin in, and we have big dreams for our team. I have my parents who are my rock, and my sister who is my hype girl. My fiance who literally believes in me, and motivates me like ya’ll have no idea. I have wonderful friends who will be my bridesmaids that pray for me everyday.

I have my brothers and my nephew that are the other pieces of my heart back in Guatemala, and my cousins in Colombia which we connect as time never passed by. What can I say? I AM BEYOND BLESSED! My dreams keep coming true little by little, and it is not because of some “destiny” this is because I WORK HARD! I love love love my life! I cannot wait to see what God has prepared for my future because another opportunity is coming up in which requires hard work, but I will do it because the Lord will give me the strength. 

Hello, my name is Michele Carvajal born in Chicago, IL, daughter of a father from Colombia & mother from Guatemala, and better known as Mishi.

If this has inspired you in any way I am glad it did! Remember this: You might cry now, people might doubt you, but do not let that get to you. YOU BETTER SHOW THEM! but please show it to yourself! If I can do it….so can you! If you want to send me a message and talk about something you are going through, and would like for me to pray for you go ahead and do it. I am also willing to give you advice so don’t wait…the change starts NOW! I hope you have an amazing day or night depending on where you are in the world.

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

How to start Working-Out

Let’s be real! Starting to work out can be very frustrating because you wished everything happened quick, and by quick I mean getting results. However, this does not work that way because everything happens at a certain pace. Meaning for some it can happen fast or some others it can be slow and this is also depending on the person. Also, you need to have a strong reason as to why you are working so you can achieve your goal! For some people it can be health issues, and for others it can be fitting in a wedding dress. See what I mean? We all have different reasons as to why we want to lose weight, but we forget about the process. In addition, keep in mind that as you get in shape you get tons of benefits which will improve your lifestyle, but also you need to be consistent as well as watching what you eat.

Improvements

Health– as you exercise your health starts to improve in a dramatic way! This improves your microbiome which improves the composition that lives in the gut, this strengths your immune system, and also helps with weight control and fights inflammation. 

Happier– Do you suffer depression, stress, and anxiety? Shoot I know I have one of these symptoms, and studies show that once you start to exercise you get happier! This is actually a win for me because now I can’t let a day pass by without getting a 1 hour workout.

Brain– Studies show that as you get a good work-out it improves your brain, and protects your memory.

Slows aging– You want to look young despite of your age? I know I do! By exersising you also reverse ageing at a cellular level, and depending on the intensity the number and health of the mitochondria increases.

Eating– With each day you exercise you start to crave for healthy food! This makes it so much easier for you to even make healthier choices that will improve your health overall.

 

Set Your Goal

Time– Set a time for you as to when you want to work on a better you. Working out for at least 1 hour a day can help you improve your health. Also, you start getting used to it little by little, and find yourself wanting to do more. 

Short-term– Start with doing short term goals instead of long term ones! By doing short term goals you will be able to tackle each thing from your list, and then you can take it up a notch. By doing short term goals this will prevent you from getting discouraged. 

Plan it– What days do you want to do? We already talked about time but right now you need to think about the days. Start with exercising 3 days a week and keep going at it so when the time comes you can add one more day! 

Be realistic– If you just started exercising don’t push yourself so much because you will only hurt yourself. Start slowly by taking baby steps and keep in mind that you won’t drop 10 pounds in one week because that is impossible. 

 

Know YOUR Why

New Year New You– Okay so this is a big step for you to understand because so many get discouraged. Try to be consistent with your workouts because it will pay off at the end! So many give up after the second or third week, but the question is why? Chances are they are still eating the same the thing over again, and not exercising enough. 

Slim– We already talked about the improvements, but remember you will also rock a hot body. If you want to look good for the summer with an incredible health then start TODAY, and do not leave it for tomorrow. 

Motivation– Get yourself up and going and put on a dope song! Make sure your playlist is filled with songs that will make you want to wake up, get a good workout in, and also feel your best!
