The Power of Being

Questions to Ask to Start Celebrating Yourself

I am a strong believer in self-help. I do it all the time and have guided myself throughout my journey with the understanding of helping or “fixing” myself to “become a better person.”

However, as time has passed by and I’ve gotten wiser, I’ve realized that I don’t have to fix myself to “become a better person.” In reality what I have to do is quite the opposite - to start accepting myself (some call it embracing your authenticity- although there are many description of what authenticity truly means- more on that in another episode).

But by accepting myself - my foundation of who I am (with my flaws, my mistakes, my quirks, etc), of who Gd made me to be, I am unlocking my power and truly starting to become a better version of me (instead of what I think should be me).

You see, when we are on a “fixing” journey, we do it with the intention of changing ourselves and what we think should be our true self. Mind you we do this through someone else’s journey and many external input, which most of the time may not be the best for us.

In this episode I am discussing the power of being my (your) raw self. I also provide the questions to ask to truly start celebrating yourself vs. fixing yourself.

I hope you enjoy it!!!

And after listening to this episode, don’t forget to let us know what you think or any questions you may have.

Dorkys Ramos - The Questions to Ask To Persevere & Refocus


I had the pleasure of interviewing Dorkys Ramos, an illustrator, editor and CEO of Porcupine Hugs, for InspirationaLatinos podcast. Her story is one which everyone should hear and because of this I excerpted some of the interview for you all to hear in Questions to Ask podcast.

Two weeks before being diagnosed with breast cancer, she launched Porcupine Hugs, a stationery company, with the full purpose of making people smile. Unbeknownst to her, not only was she destined to make people smile, but she is teaching them to live their lives to the fullest and not to let anything determine their destiny.

What drives her? Her M.O. of seeing the light in everything. Thanks to it, she has been able to live with breast cancer for the past 6+ years and not let it define her. She has gone through ups and downs, but through it all, she has persevere and always managed to refocus on her endeavors and passions. She keeps going.

In this interview she helps us learn the questions to ask when we are faced with adversity and how we should move forward in refocusing our life one step at a time.

She is truly an inspiration to us all.

And if you are curious to know what are the questions, here is a pdf to take with you (or click below for it).
