You see back in February I made a decision to move out of my Austin apartment and head home to Edinburg TX and do the commute to Austin back and forth. Why you may ask? Well, my grandfather was very ill. I could not think of the "what if" I had stayed and not gone home during this time in my families life. This is by far the best decision I had made for myself and my family. On Easter Sunday my grandfather, Lucas De Leon, passed away at age of 89. I found inner strength and inner peace in myself to get through those days and I was reassured by Him that he will be okay.
Since then, I have been finding more meaning in my life. Putting myself first, such as my health and fitness before anything else, aside from work. I started crossfit training at Crossfit Rockkore where I have met lots of wonderful and amazing people just trying to get fit and improve their body strength and health goals. Plus I have lost one inch in my waist and hips :-) and throughout my body. I LOOK AMAZING! I am proud of myself.
I also started doing more work for my non-profit Just Kauz It's Right. We will be holding our first inaugural fundraiser themed "Soldiers Serving Students" at Club Cimarron in Mission Texas on June 27th. The event begins at 6pm-8pm with U.S. Marine Corps Color Guard opening our event. We are selling tickets at $25.00 donation. All proceeds go to benefit schoolchildren in Edinburg, Mission/La Joya and McAllen. I am very optimistic for this event and I hope and pray we are successful! We have invited General Sanchez to be out guest speakers and my fingers are still crossed!
Peace and Love, Miss Mari"in 3 words I can sum up everything I know about life: it goes on"
