Longaniza Won Tons

Hey … Pull up a chair!

Let me tell you a little secret–

–I feel like I’m on a rollercoaster these days.  

There are moments where I have this immense longing to create.

But then I ask myself…

What’s the point of posting pictures of me?  Who wants to see those? 

Is there a purpose behind my cooking videos without abuela?  There are so many new amazing creatives these days! 

What am I doing? Who do I think I am acting like an influencer.. Btw I hate that term.  

The truth is, there are moments that I allow those voices to get to me.

But then t I remember my Abuela feeling the same way.  And I would give her the pep talk–letting her know how valuable she was and how much she had to offer those who watched her.  I would ask her, are you having fun?  “Si.”  Well then, lets just have fun y que ruede el mundo.  

So I ask myself, “ Do I have fun when creating, no matter what it is?”  I can honestly say I do…

So I’m going to keep creating… for me… and for whoever wants to watch.  Y pues que ruede el mlundo.
