Celebrate International Latina Day of Gratitude!!!

Latina Gratitude Day

In Celebration of International Latina Day of Gratitude was a success! Thanks for participating!

As most of you know National Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th to October 15th. this year we decided to combine our wonderful message of Gratitude and our Latina culture and end Hispanic Heritage month with something Very special! We decided to create an International Latina Day of Gratitude on October 15th and it was a total success!

Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word and who participated. We made it a day of being grateful for all the wonderful sunrises, sunsets, drinks, and fun times we have shared. Our collective voices were heard as we spread the Attitude of Gratitude to anyone who was willing to listen. In honor of this special day Zulmara Maria gave away a FREE copy of her poetry book – My Life is My Message which is available in her bookstore if you missed the free download.

We gathered together at a Google Hangout and had fun talking about what Gratitude means in our life. If you missed the hangout last night you can view the video below. We’re all still learning how to use it but I’m sure we’ll all be experts at it soon!

We’re all excited about having a Latina day of Gratitude and we have lots of fun and wonderful plans to continue to spread the word and make this an even bigger event next year!

Mil gracias to you all!


Go to Latina Gratitude and post why you are grateful!!!

Some of My Favorite Gratitude Quotes

 Gratitude and Appreciation

Appreciation and self-love are the most important tools that you could ever nurture. Abraham Hicks

Of all the attitudes we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important, and by far the most life-changing.  Zig Ziglar

Being truly grateful for what is already present in your life will automatically and effortlessly attract more good into your life. Make a conscious decision to appreciate and acknowledge all that you have already been blessed with. These emotions are of the highest vibrational frequency, and through the Law of Attraction they will attract even more to be thankful for. Jack Canfield

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. Oprah Winfrey

Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.  Kahlil Gibran

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed. Maya Angelou

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. Brian Tracy

And my personal favorite:

Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.  A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

A Serving of Gratitude

Research on the Benefits of Gratitude

International Latina Day of Gratitude


Dr. Emmons is a premiere researcher on Gratitude and he has discovered that being in a place of gratitude makes a big difference in one’s life. As a psychologist who studies emotion and religion he has been interested in how the mind and body are affected by our emotions. His research shows that those who live gratitude on a regular basis, even for the little things in life, are happier, sleep better, have lower blood pressure, and enjoy healthier and more productive lives. It appears as if the practice of gratitude enables one to live with less anxiety and depression and be more productive, alert, and kinder to loved ones. He has discovered that a little gratitude goes a long way.

His article, A Serving of Gratitude May Save the Day, explains his research and helps with understanding why gratitude can make such a difference in our lives.

He is the author of The Psychology of Gratitude (Oxford University Press), Words of Gratitude (Templeton Foundation Press) and THANKS!: How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier (Houghton-Mifflin). “If you want to sleep more soundly, count blessings, not sheep,” Dr. Emmons advises in “Thanks!” his book on gratitude research.

To learn more about healing, health, and gratitude please join me and Jes Sophia con a twitter chat on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, the International Day of Latina Gratitude at 4:00 pm PDT.

Please stay tuned for more information on the twitter chat to be happening on the International Latina Day of Gratitude.

Latinas Think BIG: LA–Gratitude DAY–October 15, 2013

Latinas Think BIG Los Angeles:

International Day of Latina Gratitude


Launching the International Day of Latina Gratitude on October 15, 2013 as an official clausura to Latino Heritage Month as an annual event is MY BIG IDEA.  I want to bring Latinas everywhere together to raise our collective voices of GRACIAS y BENDICIONES and to help us connect as a talented group of women who are changing the world, one gratitude, one thank you, one appreciation at a time.

I want to attend the ELLA Leadership Institute because I have been impressed with the Latina Leadership Network and the ELLA Leadership Institute and the work that Angelica Perez has done in pulling together an AWESOME, POWERFUL group of Latinas and I want to connect and align my cause with their causes. Many of them are online friends or cyber amigas or social media acquaintances or comadres en el internet- that have the same drive, ambition, and motivation that I have. I love that many of them have a social justice calling that is deep and profound. We are all fighting the same fight, we are all speaking on the same issues, we are all concerned about our children, other people’s children and the plight of mother earth.

This AMAZING group of women resonates with my very core and my projects, International Latina Gratitude Day, Reclaiming Your Divinity: las posibilidades son infinitas, the Latina Millionaire, and Pitching Your Passion and Marketing Your Spirit. I launched my business, Roots y Wings, on September 1, 2013 as a way of celebrating my life, giving back to the community that has supported me for so many years and through so many trials, paying it forward to those who are following their dreams, and supporting our communities in any way I can. My projects are focused on personal and professional development for Latinas and I welcome the opportunity to work with such talented and soulful Latinas who tend to resonate with ELLA and have made it the organization it has become.

I am looking forward to the opportunity to getting to know the many AWESOME Latinas in the organization and further its vision and mission, as Latinas every where raise their collective voices and become the change we wish to see in the world.
