At times the entire truth is simply a formality, a brief statement that places everything into perspective. Oftentimes it the omissions that challenge our perception of reality, like: yes it used to be so and I haven’t gotten around to it no longer being the case. So my best guess is that no one ends up the winner and we’ve all bet on a lie no matter how tiny it may be. So our investments fail because we were not genuine, not clear. Then we whine of our misfortunes and ignore our misdeeds: but I tried so hard, I wanted it to be so, I made you feel this way from the bottom of my soul. Turns out that words are cheap when they’re untrue, a small cost to pay as we purchase unhappiness.

Many things have inspired me along the way, from the way that atoms interact to universal forces working in tandem to bring joy into my life. I arrived from Cuba at the young age of 6 years old, became a big sister to an exceptional little boy at the age of 13, went off to college as a first-generation college student, earned a Bachelor's degree in Biological Chemistry from Grinnell College. After graduating, I became a high school science teacher with Teach for America and taught for 5 years. While teaching, I earned a Master's of Science in Education and Social Change from the University of Miami and then studied at Florida Institute of Technology and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Currently I am loving my life as a BCBA where every day I learn new skills applicable in my practice and in my life. View all posts by hellenbarroso
