After 6 years without any updated to my website, I finally got around to do something. For someone like me that is always working on design projects became hard to find the time to do this overdue update for myself.

I been consumed doing charity and free work during my free time and I thought it was time to do something for me. This new page although rushed and simple is one I enjoyed.

Looking forward for some feed back on what I call: MY SOCIAL WEBSITE. Let’s connect!

The Best & Worst Halloween Candies

CONFESSION: I’M ADDICTED TO SUGAR!

Definitely talking about candy is sad. I been struggling in a battle for staying healthy while indulging on sneakers, pop tarts for breakfast and chocolate something for dessert when I go out to eat. It’s definitely hard to stay on track to achieve my fitness goals.

This article published by Men’s Fitness magazine will make us feel better about the choices of candies we make this Halloween, HOORRAY!

Going back down to reality, we all know that sugar is not too good for us, for that reason I will put in my 2 cents and tell you what I been doing lately to try on curbing my sugar cravings. Number one option are nuts, all kind. Beside helping hunger they contain the good type of fat that our body need to function well. My other option are seasonal sweet fruits like cherries and other berries.

For now just take a look at this link and pick your favorites and best you! If you have time come back and tell me your pick. my pick is Dark Chocolate.

I had written this post yesterday. I delete it accidentally.

Yesterday eager to come up with few new ideas for my t-shirt store, which will be part of my website to be released tomorrow night, I went for lunch at Liberato Restaurant in the Bronx with my sketch book and pencil on hand. As I sat down and ordered my lunch, next to me sat Ruben, an elder man from Dominican Republic and without hesitation he started talking to me about his experiences in the United States. I thought for a few minutes: Damn I won’t be able to do what I planned to do here!

As the minutes went by, and to my surprise, I found myself involved in a deep conversation with Ruben. He started talking to me about finances, his business plans and about the secret to stay healthy and to have a positive mental attitude. To my surprise everything he told me came very close to my findings in the last few years about the law of attraction, exercises, budgeting and above all staying true to yourself and the values of family.

Still I felt like I already knew all of this, and that I had just lost my 1 hour of lunch which I had planned all morning how to use.

At the end of our conversation Ruben asked me: Do you know the 4 basic operations of Math? and I answered yes: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The he told me: “Right now I only care about 2: addition & multiplication. I finally I had a good feeling about my lunch: I have the concept for my new t-shirt series and a confirmation of the purpose of life!

FORGIVENESS

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”
Mark Twain

“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”
Bruce Lee

“Forgiveness is the final form of love.”
Reinhold Niebuhr

Tonight while I was on treadmill burning off some calories I was listening to a broadcast from the library of congress about blogging and social media and the power of FORGIVENESS came across unexpectedly, I thought it would be interesting finding more about it. while going through one of my favorite quote sites, brainy quote I found exactly what I thought: Forgiveness is possible but forgetting is not. I personally think that what Calle 13 says is perfectly fine: “Perdono pero nunca olvido”. I think that remembering keep us human and grounded and help us correct what’s wrong.

It would be great if you can tell me your opinion below….
