When I began La Loba Health & Empowerment in January 2016, the goal was to work on the things that I'm skilled at and passionate about in a way that made sense for me and my family. And I have done so. But the truth is, I have also still been clinging to the safety of work that does not light me up while trying to follow my passions on the side. This has left me spread thin and questioning the quality of each project.
Don't get me wrong, I am not above taking the work that I need in order to pay the bills and make ends meet. I've done this for many years. But in March of 2015 my life came very close to ending during my baby's birth and I swore I would never again take my time here for granted. I planned to take more of the risks necessary to live passionately and fully. For it is when I am fully standing in my truth and allowing my real voice to be heard that I feel my best and that I am able to make the biggest difference in the lives of those around me. So with the support of my wonderful life partner, I began this amazing little business! Yet the life and death lesson that seemed so crystal clear at the time, began to fade as financial stress and the illusion of safety swayed my decisions in much of the work I sought and accepted.
So I've taken a step back to tune into my matriz, my intuition, and refocus La Loba. Yes, I've used spreadsheets and logistics to make life decisions in the past and they are always a part of my basic strategy. But I know it's only when I allow my intuition to elevate those strategies that I discover the juiciest adventures.
So I am following my matriz! While the vast field of public health, with it's social justice philosophy and research methodologies, will always be the backbone of La Loba Health & Empowerment, the leading focus of each research project, consultancy, class, coaching, or workshop going forward, will be sexual and reproductive health and justice. New offerings are in development and I hope to be providing more of my written work here.
Thank you so much, to all of my clients, followers, and supporters!!! Mi gente, with the change of seasons, we too are transforming. And you are the reason I am so excited to continue this evolution!!!
