Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog Be Beautifully Broken.
My name is Adriana Rivera. I am of Cuban descent, 45 years old, four children, four bonus children, and I am happily married. But none of that came to be without baggage, without brokenness, without growing pains, learning curves, shame, regrets and an insurmountable amount of low self-esteem.
Be Beautifully Broken blog is dedicated to helping women understand how to survive, learn and grow from the various stages of life that each woman will experience in some capacity. Along with helping women grow, I hope that this will also serve men with an inside look to a woman’s point of view. So many men don’t understand how women tick, what makes women come alive or what women want. So if you are a man, I welcome you to join in as well. If you are a husband wanting to help your wife, or understand your life with a woman, you have come to the right place!
I encourage every woman reading this now to stand in the mirror and say this to yourself (inserting or excluding position or titles as you see fit).
“I am not only a survivor, I am a warrior and lover of life. I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend…but first and foremost, I am a woman. I am strong, I am beautiful, I am here and present, I am alive, I am intelligent, I am important, and I will not let anyone else tell me differently with their words or actions.”
I look forward to getting to know all of you better through our interaction here.
