From the desk of Sol….
People often ask me what I do to keep my super-happy high energy. I’m always sharing happy images, positive things on Facebook and Instagram, and jump through the door in to work in the morning spreading kisses and hugs and good vibes to everyone! Today I received a message from a dear friend asking for my recipe for positivity. She is battling a deep depression, to the point of trying to end her life. I’m still in shock. Therefore I decided to publish this story today.
My life has been a adventure with ups and downs and my share of salty tears washing away my sorrows. My “super happy” powers can run low, so I decided to take action to recharge my happy energy, among the things I’m currently doing is creating a Super Woman League for Del Sol Photography!
I LOVE being a woman, I’m amazed by our kind. How we can go from being vulnerable, delicate flowers, to the strongest warriors in life. We possess the passion of a thousand seas, stop traffic with our walk and hearts with our smile. We are volatile creatures, change our minds in the blink of an eye, unpredictable and always full of surprises. No matter our age, race, anything; when we love there is nothing that compares to the feeling of being in our arms and receiving our kisses. Women are MAGICAL.
All this magic sometimes needs to be recharged. There are times when we forget we are SUPERWOMEN! We forget the power that comes from our souls, we feel lost, sad, weak, depressed. We need friendly reminders of the amazing creatures we are. So I have a new mission in life: I want to inspire and help other women find the Super Women inside themselves and keep a happy, healthy and sexy lifestyle and inspire others to do the same, some sort of “Pay it Forward” kind of thing..
My first act as founder of my Super Woman League is an underwater portrait project. Being in nature is the best way to connect with Mother Earth, the Universe, and get recharged. Also, when we are underwater we can fly! And magical things happen.
I started with my friend Kay, a very successful woman who owns her own company and travels the world helping others. She’s beautiful, spiritual, smart: an adventurer! However even a mega achiever like Kay sometimes forgets her super powers. Kay recently shared these thoughts:
The untimely death of Robin Williams has touched me deeply. I battle with depression. For years I thought I could fight it on my own, alone. I hid my desperation with work. Denying my true feelings of hopelessness.
I finally realized that no matter how hard I pulled up my big girl panties and tried to suck it up, the depression was not going away. I put my ego aside and got the help I needed. Life is so much better now. I love my life again.
If you suffer from depression or know someone who does, reach out!
There are options to start living a happy life, really there are. – Kay
Kay was the ideal first guinea pig for my project. I wanted her to look like the goddess she is, we discussed a few ideas and when the day of the photoshoot came, Kay arrived dressed as Wonder Woman! That was perfect!
She’s the first of what I’m envisioning to be a grand project. Hopefully I can help many many women get in touch with their inner Super Hero Goddess.
This project is for ALL the Women in the world, but especially a tribute to the Super Women close to me, those who have helped me become the woman I am and continue to inspire me to help others : My 87 year old Grandma, my mother who raised 4 children without a man, my blood sisters; my second mother Vicky who adopted me in Playa and constantly reminds me not to take my self too seriously, my new adopted sisters that the universe sends my way and the Super Amazing Women that work with me in del Sol to create ART. GRACIAS to ALL of you. Amazing Women. SUPER WOMAN! I hope that my dear friend in trouble and anyone like her will find inspiration, peace and joy!
