Daily Prompt: Obvious

“A hidden connection is stronger than an obvious one.”

-Heraclitus of Ephesus

Somethings are just so obvious in life for example, you could go to the store be looking at clothes or shoes and if something too big or too small it’s obvious it doesn’t fit, so you don’t even bother trying it on. Then there are thing in life we wished showed more obvious signs, that it wasn’t going to fit, it wasn’t going to work; so why bother trying it.

But then if we would live our life without every taking a chance or reckless decisions what would be the fun in that. Life all about making choices but sometimes we tend to go for the obvious more reasonable ones, don’t! Take risk take chances that’s what life is all about.

New mommies if you’re not already doing them, start them now. Its time to tone your lady parts!  

I know you’ve heard of Kegel exercises, but uh … what’s the deal with them again? Kegels are exercises you can do to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. The muscles that support your urethra, bladder, uterus, and rectum. There basically to help women with urinary incontinence, or diminished bladder control, which can happen after childbirth.

How do I do them?

Imagine that you’re trying to stop yourself from passing gas and trying to stop the flow of pee at the same time. The feeling is one of “squeeze and lift” – a closing and drawing up of the front and back passages. Make sure that you’re squeezing and lifting without pulling in your tummy, squeezing your legs together, tightening your buttocks, or holding your breath. In other words, only your pelvic floor muscles should be working.

If you haven’t been doing Kegels, start by holding each contraction for a few seconds before releasing, and relax for a few seconds after each one. As your muscles get stronger, you’ll want to work up to holding each Kegel for ten seconds, then relaxing for ten seconds after each one. If you’re suffering from urinary incontinence, try to hold a Kegel while you sneeze, cough, or lift something. You may find that it helps keep you from leaking.

*Week 1

  • Warm-up, 10 sets — Contract PC muscle for five seconds, five-second rest
  • Standard contractions, 10 sets — Contract PC muscle firmly 30 times, then take a one- minute rest
  • Flutter, three sets — Contract PC muscle quickly and repeatedly for 10 seconds, rest for 10 seconds

Finish Line

I’m so excited of being so close to finishing my last course required to earn my Associate Degree. It’s a small stepping stone of my life, but by accomplishing it gives me great faith and strength to keep on moving towards my bachelors degree.




“I don’t want to be little again. But at the same time I do. I want to be me like I was then, and me as I am now, and me like I’ll be in the future. I want to be me and nothing but me. I want to be crazy as the moon, wild as the wind and still as the earth. I want to be every single thing it’s possible to be. I’m growing and I don’t know how to grow. I’m living but I haven’t started living yet. Sometimes I simply disappear from myself. Sometimes it’s like I’m not here in the world at all and I simply don’t exist. Sometimes I can hardly think. My head just drifts, and the visions that come seem so vivid.”
― David Almond



I decided to make my first post a more detailed about me so you could get to know me a bit better.  Like I mentioned in my about me my name is Priscylla Olaya Gracia in this moment I’m currently 24 years old . My son’s name is Luis Humberto and he is currently 2 months 19 days old.  My husbands name is Luis Salvador, we’ve been married for 3 months now, learning new things from each other everyday. Going through the beautiful, amazing but also complicated experience of parenthood together.

Every since I graduated from high school I had been soul-career searching jumping back and forward from collages and universities changing majors. I began my college path in nursing but after going at it for two years I decided it wasn’t for me. Although I really saw my self as a nurse or a doctor and love the idea of helping -saving people, contributing to my community; I just couldn’t achieve the academic part. I believe I was to young at that time and wouldn’t take school seriously at that time. When I became pregnant everything changed and it just hit me I needed to get my act together.  I remember as I child how I would always find a way convince my cousins to play “school” just so I could be the teacher and just like that I had found my new major also helping  people and contributing to my community but just in a different way. This summer if God allows me and everything goes as plan I will be receiving my Associates in Teaching but its not my intend to stop there.

I’ve always been a big dreamer, dreaming big in every aspect of my life.
