Deepak Chopra: Love and Compassion [Part 2]

Again thanks to Toyota for allowing me to experience the Oprah Life You Want Weekend in Houston.
It was truly inspirational.

Oprah's first speaker, Deepak Chopra, respected for his holistic views, was a breath of fresh air. He outlined "7 Steps to an Awesome Life" help embrace and love your life. While these are a simple overview, I feel like they are thought provoking enough for you to apply and enjoy.

Step 1. See the world as a reflection of yourself

  • Simply, what you put into the world is what you get out of it 
  • If you love and are kind, the world will love and be kind to you

Step 2. Understand the essence of relationship

  • The people in our journey come and go as a necessary part of our souls

Step 3. Make sure your intentions are not only for yourself but for the common good

  • When you look for ways to help others and expand your reasonings you begin to be less selfish

Step 4. Learn to center yourself in true self/soul, beyond ego

  • Allow yourself to have a clear, alert heart, and loving compassionate heart
  • These are the gaps between our thoughts and mediations, where our minds wander when we allow ourselves to be silent

Step 5. Free yourself of emotional toxicity -hostility, resentment, jealousy, guilt, and shame

  • These emotions weight us down and cause us to not reach our full potential 
  • It may be hard, but letting go of these emotions can change your whole outlook

Step 6. Embrace the masculine and feminine of the universal energies in you

  • We all have our own strengths and weaknesses, and to categorize them as masculine or feminine is putting constraints on our own potential
  • Accepting those strengths and weaknesses as just being "you" will allow you to fully embrace yourself. 

Step 7. Keep yourself healthy

  • Focus on your overall health, mentally, physically, and emotional will help you be clear enough to achieve the life you want. 

Overall you must ask yourself: 
What is it in me that is creating this situation? 
Because I am responsible for my life.

A night out with Marissa Lopez Wong - Mario Lopez sister

A couple of weeks ago, Mario Lopez was set to make an appearance at Lumen Lounge and due to things beyond our control he could not make it. However after speaking to him, he asked me to host his sister and brother in law and I gladly did. Marissa Lopez Wong is an author as well as sister to top Latin TV Host Mario Lopez and Kailee Wong is a retired NFL player. They live in Houston with their children and after a good dinner they celebrated the night away at Lumen. 
Waiting on when Mario will remake his appearance, hopefully it will be soon!

Better Together (sponsored post)

With my hubby and little man in the house things can get hectic. We all have packed schedules that require us to be on the go all day. That’s why I love using Caress Daily Silk Body wash Value Pack and my boys are smelling great with Axe Black from Sam’s Club. They are quick, easy to travel with, and smell great.

But best of all, Sam’s Club carries them! So, I can grab them while I am stocking the house up, and we have enough for both my guys!
Preparing for the day, freshening up mid-day, or getting ready for a night out, a quick blast of confidence from Axe is what my boys need.
But with Axe Black and Caress, my entire family is #BetterTogetherSC!

And Caress is for me, it gives me just what I need to start my day feeling fresh and lovely. I also love the reassurance that I smell great through out the day. 
And after a long day it is the perfect way to relax. 
And Sam’s makes it so easy to pick it up and go with their new app. Scan and Go! It makes my shopping trips so much quicker a…

Meeting with Romeo Santos...So Nasty

I love music and as most of us do, we also have our favorites. I was fortunate enough to meet one of my favorite musicians, Romeo Santos of the mega latin group Aventura while he was in Houston promoting his dvd release for "The King Stays King" a concert dvd from where he  sold out at Madison Square Garden for about 3 nights consecutively. He's like the male version of J.Lo, that hard to get close to. 

There must have been over 2k people in line waiting to get an autograph, catch a glimpse, a smile, and if lucky a hug from this latino heartthrob.... luckily I didn't have to wait in a line. I got a smile, a hug and we spoke and laughed about some of his previous work and very first cd. I was waiting on him while he met other fans for a private meet and greet the radio hosted and honestly I don't know how he does it...I was laughing the whole time, at the requests some of the fans were making, than at the replies the management would give. His management took car…
