Never Give Up

never-give-up

As the holidays get closer, the bills pile up, the cost of living goes up and the problems don’t go away and now the year end comes to an end, so we may feel like #givingup – right? WRONG!

Like many of you, I have problems, I have struggles, I cry, I lock myself in the room and cry my self to sleep, I ask myself time and time again “Why Me, Why Me” and just can’t find a way out.  I feel that things just keep coming my way and more things keep thrown my way, more problems arise, more issues, etc… I sometimes say to myself “Why do I even try, Why do I continue, Why even do it, Why, Why, Why”…Well, I’ll tell you why!  Because, life is beautiful, life is great, life may have its ups and downs, life may throw things at us that we don’t like, but guess what? Not many, have the luxury of being alive!  There’s so may men, woman and children that wish they had one more day to go through the daily life struggles that we complain about everyday!

I know my father would have wished to be here one more day and would have preferred dealing with the daily struggles, drama, problems, so as long as he was able to see his grandkids alive, see his children get married, go camping, fishing, etc…So, STOP COMPLAING and STOP saying YOU, YES YOU!  That you want to GIVE UP!

Stopit1. Every problem has a solution

2. There’s a solution to every problem

3. Life is Great

4. Life is Beautiful

5. Life is Precious

6. No problem to big

7. As long as we have life, there’s HOPE

8. Have FAITH

9. Love Yourself

10. Love Life

 

NEVER GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE THROWS YOUR WAY!

God does things for a Reason, you may not know the reason NOW, but TRUST ME – you will see it – sooner or later…So DON’T GIVE UP!

the Great Escape

The beauty of life is learning to enjoy each and every moment that we are on this earth.  More importantly enjoying each and every moment you have with your family and friends.

We all deal with the day – to – day daily life struggles always feeling rushed, kids sports, work, bills, problems, but we all need to take a moment and GET AWAY!  A moment to enjoy life and the beauties mother nature has for us.

Many think that Getaways are expensive, but that’s NOT the case, at least NOT for me.  Why, How?

Well, I take advantage of my outings – for example when we have to take our kids to their sporting events, instead of sitting and waiting we take advantage of our day / weekend out and while the kids are prepping for their sport, we go out and explore and learn about the new cities, counties, states and / or countries that we maybe in.  So, how do I do it? Well, we travel a lot with our 13 year old son who’s an amateur boxer, we have to take him to his boxing events that sometimes are local, or out of town.  These events are all day events, meaning that we have to arrive very early and leave very late :).  Example: This past month my son was scheduled to fight in Sonoma and while he went through the routine of; Weigh ins, seeing the Doctor and waiting to see if his opponent showed up from the Central Valley, my husband, daughter and I decided to explore the beauties of Sonoma County (sometimes our other children opt out on participating, they rather wait and mingle with their friends, which is perfectly OK). So, we had a couple of choices, we could either sit and wait for hours till the Boxing Showtime started, or we could go explore beautiful Sonoma.  So, we decided to go and explore Sonoma AND it was all FREE, yes FREE! Take advantage and find FREE SPOTS;  Beach is Free, Lighthouse tour was Free, Walk along the Beach was Free, the View was Free 🙂  We always pack lunch, drinks, snacks, so we don’t have to spend a fortune on eating out!

We started to drive and decided to jump onto HWY 1 and followed it all the way through and this is were it took us – to the end of the Pacific Coast, isn’t it breath taking???

We went and visited Bodega Bay and stopped by some of the other Sonoma County Beaches and enjoyed our walks in some of the most beautiful beaches.  We decided to take a walk and enjoy the warm and soft sand while enjoying every moment watching and hearing the sound of the waves.  We sat for a while relaxing and enjoying the fresh, and cool ocean breeze and reminiscing with our daughter our visits to Santa Cruz, Petaluma, New York, Las Vegas, etc…mean while my husband relaxed and napped in the beautiful sandy beach!

Words can’t describe the beautiful moments we spent on those beautiful beaches and seeing the blue water and sunshine and nothing around just the beautiful Pacific Coast waters.

The Point Reyes Lighthouse on the Sonoma Coast is the place to visit it’s surrounded by “33,000 acres of coastal wilderness is a wild seashore that should be on your must-see list.”

Interpreter Training & Skills Development

Have you ever wondered, if your “bilingual employee, staff interpreter” speaks, understands and is actually interpreting or saying everything you say “word for word”?

I guess that’s the million dollar question, that many of you are asking yourselves now :)?

Do you think that just because a person is “bilingual”, they are competent to provide Professional Interpreting services?

Remember, “Just because your bilingual, it doesn’t make you a Professional Interpreter”, it takes more than just knowing 2 or more languages to provide these services.

To be a Professional Interpreter, NOT ONLY do you need to be Fluent in both the English language and the Target language, you also need to know:

  • Basic Interpreting Skills
  • Roles and Functions of an Interpreter
  • Responsibilities of an Interpreter
  • Ethics, Standards and Protocols, and much, much more!!!

With my Interpreter Training and Skills Development, you, your staff, employees and potential interpreters will be on your way and started on your path of becoming a Professional Interpreter.
