Welcome July - Bienvenido Julio

 

Reflections by Maritza M. Mejía

Welcome July! Unbelievable, half a year has passed. Six months ago, we set up goals. Have we accomplished some of them? Maybe. Maybe, some but not all. It is time to re-think what we would be able to accomplish or improve for this year. Small steps help reach our objectives because the future is in our hands not in the destiny. 

 

Work for your dreams!


¡Bienvenido julio! Increíble, ha pasado medio año. Hace seis meses nos fijamos unos objetivos. ¿Hemos cumplido algunos? Quizá algunos, pero no todos. Tal vez haya llegado el momento de replantearnos lo que podríamos conseguir o mejorar este año. Los pequeños pasos ayudan a alcanzar nuestros objetivos porque el futuro está en nuestras manos, no en el destino.

¡Lucha por tus sueño

Welcome June - Bienvenido Junio


 Reflections by Maritza M. Mejía

Welcome June! 
As the earth spins, one could feel the gentle breeze, others the cruel freeze. While Mother Nature screams out, "Be gentle, it's all I ask." How many times do we hear, "It is time to take care of our planet," but what are we doing to protect our Common House? I invite you this month to be conscious about this topic and act by reusing, reducing and recycling. Have a blessed and happy summer/winter wherever you are.


Summer Break

mission accomplished!

half of the year passed by 

time to take a break!

 (Haiku, @2024 Mejía)


¡Bienvenido Junio! 
Mientras que la tierra rota, unos podrán sentir la briza suave, otros el cruel frio. Mientras la Madre Naturaleza grita, "Ten cuidado conmigo, es todo lo que pido." Cuántas veces hemos escuchado, “Es tiempo de cuidar nuestro planeta”, pero ¿qué estamos haciendo para cuidar de nuestra Casa Común? Te invito éste mes a tomar conciencia sobre el tema y actuar. Empecemos reduciendo, reusando y reciclando.

¡Feliz Junio y Verano!

Thank you for your support!🌷 #LuzDelMes 🌠
