Love you momma Madrigal

I’m participating in the Pay it Forward initiative

PayItForward2014

ÁmateAhora hopes to form a web connection of kindness! Let’s do more nice and loving things in 2014, without any reason other than to make each other smile and to show that we think of each other. Here’s to a more enjoyable, more friendly, and love-filled year!

The first five people who comment on our FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/AmateAhoraHealthExpo with “I’m in” will receive a surprise from me at some point during this calendar year—anything from a book, a ticket, something home-grown, homemade, a postcard, absolutely any surprise!

There will be no warning and it will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy. These five people must make the same offer on their Facebook status.

Once my first five have commented, “I’m in,” I will forward you this message to put as your status. (Don’t share it.) Be A Voice For Healthy Living In Your Community, ÁmateAhora! Be the change you wish to see in the world

Are You In?

SoyLatinoAmerica

Thanks to both dynamo radio hosts Luis Stalin Cruz and Norma Casarrubias for having me at Soy LatinoAmerica. We had a great time sharing how I met Norma “Amore”. All thanks goes to the one and only EL POTRILLO DE CHICAGO, David Guevara.

He highly recommended I reach out and meet her. Immediately I attended her Zumba class at Rosario Castellanos Community School 5pm-6pm, what a workout. The Zumba Mommas at Castellanos rock!

Luis was very interested in my views on the importance to completing higher education and my perspective as an Industrial/Organizational Psychologist. Distinguishing a Clinical Psychologist from Industrial/Organizational Psychologist and sharing what steered my path.

We, ÁmateAhora, shared about the Urgency of the Critical State of Our Health. And the Power We Have to Choose to Live Healthy. Norma asked about my passion for health and where my inspiration came from. I was a pleasure to share and invite their radio audience to our Health Expo Saturday June 14th 10AM-4PM.
