Cositas a Toda Madre began a few years ago. Not under that name but under many thoughts, ideas, fears, and even self-doubt. You see, I wanted to be a therapist. At least I thought I did, and I am sure I did at one point. I spent years in school, and I thought I loved it. But deep down I was miserable. I loved learning but I was missing a part of myself. The creative person I once was. I had pushed my ideas and the thought of opening a small business aside because well I was going to become a therapist. I was frozen by the fear of failing. The thought of quitting school seemed insane at first. I could not be a quitter. I was taught to finish whatever I started. It wasn’t until my husband helped me view the act of quitting in a different light, I got the courage to quit school. Quitting is not something horrible, it is necessary when you are unhappy and know deep down that finishing will not bring you happiness. Cositas a Toda Madre is for those who are trying to muster the courage and put in the work to be their authentic and true selves no matter how difficult it can be. It's for all the chingonas out there doubting themselves pero le siguen chingando. For all the mamis out there who get lost in Madrehood and must find their way back. Cositas a Toda Madre is proof that your dreams are not crazy because somos chingonas y todo se puede.
