Tag: don’t give up
Recently, I read something about Dreams and Goals: “When you have Dreams and you have a Journey to reach – stay focused and remember you are who you are. God would not have given you what He gave you if he didn’t think you were the right person for it.”
This is Gods way of telling me that I have the ability to continue my race and pursue my goals and it won’t be long before I reach the stars. I must have faith, however, to believe in my dreams.
God gives each of us gifts and blesses us with the ability to fulfill our Journey in life – but if we fall asleep at the wheel, we will never be able to foresee what could have been. We may never know how valuable our ability is and how it can make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. We may never know our Dream-Ability!

Happy Holidays to you and your Family.
As the days get closer to Christmas, I stop and wonder: What goes on in everyone’s mind?
People rushing to get holiday shopping done on time and preparing for Christmas Dinner, perhaps holiday party’s with co-workers and exchanging gifts.
I have always enjoyed watching everyone feeling so merry and cheerful when the holidays come around.
It’s funny, because I used to be that person, always wanting to give to my family and even those I didn’t know. I have always felt that if I was going to have a warm Christmas I wanted other families with children to have the same.
This year has been tough for a lot of us, and perhaps there are some of us that don’t know how to deal with it.
There was a time when I was always able to help others with financial relief and did so without hesitation.
Today it is different, I am unable to give as freely as I used to, yet my holidays will be okay. I plan to spend this Holiday Season with Angels and Family.
I ask Jesus Christ to surround me with all his beautiful Angels and with their strong wings to lift me up in spirit, and continue to bring that smile to my face, even when I know times are tough.
I must focus on what the Holidays are about : It’s preparing me for the Birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas Day.
What I am trying to share with you is that no matter how hard things may seem, when it feels like everything is crumbling around you – you must remember that you are not alone.
You are surrounded by Angels and they are lifting you up in Spirit. You can find them all around you if you take the time to see them.
Be thankful for what you have and even for what you don’t have.
I am Thankful for my love for Christ and my Family, and friends that really care. I love you just like Jesus Christ loves me and Jesus loves you too.
So I say to you: Thank You for all you have done for me, and not allowing me to give up my dreams. This alone will make my Holiday brighter.
I hope you spend this Holiday Season with Angels and Family, and may it be merry and cheerful.
May your Holiday Season be warm and full of love, and the Greatest Gift you receive is knowing that God makes the impossible – Possible!
Happy Holidays to you and your Family,
“We walk by Faith and not by Sight”
It’s always exciting when someone gets nominated to receive an award of some sort. It is more exciting when they win!
Well, this past weekend, we were a part of a three day event that started with the Tejano Music National Convention (TMNC) and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) weekend exhibits. The evenings had their own Gran Bailes that featured several Tejano Artist performing for all of the guests that were here in San Antonio to celebrate this Huge Pachanga.
The weekend culminated for us with the 30th Annual Tejano Music Awards and the 6th Annual Tejano Academy Awards, combined and produced by LatinPointe out of Lenexa, Kansas.
As I prepared for the Tejano Music Awards on Sunday, I wondered what goes through the minds of those that were nominated. I then asked myself how I would feel.
Well, I know I would be excited and happy and, of course, nervous. And to know that it was the fans that nominated is a bigger reward.
I respect all people in the music industry. Those who work so many hours on their music and dedicate themselves to a gift that was given to them by God. Because it is God who gives the voice to sing and the ability to play an instrument.
That, to me, is the best Award anyone could possibly receive. I congratulate all the nominees and all of the Winners for using God’s gifts in such a manner to be nominated in the first place.
To this weekends nominees and winners: Thank you for keeping La Onda Tejana alive and moving. I thank all the Artist, those that were there and those that couldn’t make it. My hat goes off to all of you for such a great job in bringing us beautiful music.
I enjoy listening to the music and meeting new artists and I truly applaud you. You are the future and we are here to support you. I look forward to the day you receive your award.
But for now I want to say: And the Award goes to…….. You!!
I award you for giving us what we love to hear. Here are some tips for you:
- Keep up the great work and God will shower you with Abundance;
- Stay Humble and focused;
- Persevere and don’t give up on your dream – more people appreciate it than you know;
- Don’t forget what it took to get you there; and
- Pass it on!
Now I want to thank a few people: Thank You to David and Sarah Chavez who brought the awards under one Umbrella; Texas Talent Musician Association’s (TTMA) Robert Arellano & Frank Salazar for their continued service; thirty years, Tejano Academy for your great support, The 30 years of the Tejano Music Awards; our good friend, Abby Chavarilla, who always remembers us, and all of the volunteers that help make this event successful. All of this could not have happened without your help and support.
Special thanks to Jesse Mascorro of Best Buy Musical Instruments and Best Buy for letting us share the spotlight and host their stage at the exhibit. It was fun, fun fun!
So now I present the award and this Award goes to…..You! All of you!!!
We had a wonderful time and look forward to next year!
Be Blessed and remember that the Biggest and Greatest Award that we all receive is the gift that God gives us….whatever it may be.
Amor Y Paz
“We walk by Faith and not by Sight”
I always love sharing my dreams and my Goals with you, I feel there is someone out there with their Goals in life, yet just don’t know where to start. I have realized that it starts with determination and motivation, when we set our minds to do something that we know will not only benefit our career, but also our community, That when I tell you grab that Bull by it’s horns and run with it.
I sometimes find myself so busy working on so many other projects, just wanting to do the best that I can. Iam one of those persons that can be set on determination and motivation , that one way or another it is going to work it self out. and yes I can be stubborn and not give up, I have never been one to start a project and then give up because it didn’t work, and then jump to the next it takes time and great effort with a strong team to make it happen.
I have faith and God gives me the determination and motivation to do the things He knows are right for me, it may not happen today or tomorrow,but it will Happen.
I share this with you because my mind just sometimes goes a hundred miles per hour and I wonder how can I make a difference in helping others with their dreams and goals in life. How can I reach out to the person living in a cardboard box who thinks they have no determination and or motivation to change their lives.
Well there’s always hope! and you have to reach out and grab it, stand on your two feet with your head held high and say this is the day that God has given me to be determined and motivated!
We all struggle with this at times and I speak for myself, but because my faith is so Strong I continue to Go!
Iam not a writer , but I share with you what I feel in my heart and sometimes I feel that is, the best Cup of Soup from the Soul.
Till next time take care !
