Introducing " Cafe con Lizzy "
Hi Everyone! Many of you know me as "La Chillona" (one who cries a lot). And many of you know that name was a great fit for me. I even had a blog named "Arte by La Chillona", however this little lady accidentally deleted said blog! Der!! So now I am starting up a new blog to replace the one I deleted.
At first I was horrified! But I'm kinda thinking this was more of a blessing in disguise. I've been contemplating for a while now about dropping La Chillona, but thats all I've done is contemplate. I used to be someone who cried when I was happy, when I was sad, and when I was mad. I cried for everything. LOL. The way I came to be "La Chillona" was because I was trying to find a name for myself in the Craft industry. My ex husband actually came up with the name but I thought it was brilliant! It had a really good ring to it so I decided to make it my Artist name.
In the last year and a half, life challenged me. Really hard! I separated from my husband, I lost two jobs, had to move in with my parents (which I've been told would make a great reality show), and other life stuff. But all these things made me grow. It helped me realize the many things I took for granted. Most importantly I realized how unhappy I was in life and decided to take action to making a better life for my son and myself. I found strength that I never knew I had. When I thought I was just about to die, I found the strength to pick myself up and keep going. I had an overwhelming support from my Facebook family. I will always be grateful to them for being there and for putting up with all my ranting. Well my point is that with Life's challenges something beautiful blossomed. Me! I started noticing that when I was sad, I wasn't crying. I was looking for a solution. When I was mad, I was taking action and when I was happy, I was enjoying the moment. I wasn't crying anymore. I haven't cried in such a long time! Now there's been times where I told myself it was ok to cry, but I couldn't. I always found the silver lining. So my whole point is that La Chillona isn't who I am anymore. La Chillona was like a caterpillar who blossomed into a butterfly and spread her wings and took to the sky!
So you see, maybe this was all meant to be. Its a new chapter. A new beginning. A new ME! With that said I introduce to you, Cafe con Lizzy. I dedicate this blog to all things Inspirational. A place where we can all get inspired through crafting, life experiences, art, laughter, friends, oh and most importantly COFFEE!!! I love COFFEE!!!!
So in closing I will leave you with this: Life will never be a bowl a cherries. However with every obstacle there is triumph, if you chose not to give up.
Good night my friends! Thank you for letting me share this with you. Till we meet again...
Cafesito y Besitos!
