It’s in the Tag: How Hashtags Impact Instagram Engagement
Read it here: http://www.digitalinformationworld.com/2015/07/infographic-how-hashtags-impact-instagram-engagement.html

#Hashtags are crucial to content discovery on Instagram. They are what connect completely unliked individuals and brands to specific moments, places and experiences.

The folks at +Curalate had an inkling that by not using hashtags (or by using them way too much), brands were missing out on a considerable amount of engagement, but they weren't sure just how much. To find out, they analyzed more than 430 Million interactions across 36K brand photos from 2013 to 2015. And the infographic below illustrates what they found.

Some people will kill you over time if you let them; and how they’ll kill you is with tiny, seemingly harmless phrases like, “Be realistic.”  When this happens, close your ears and listen to your inner voice instead.  Remember that real success in life isn’t what others see, but how you feel inside.  It’s living your truth and doing what makes you feel alive.  There will come a time when your back is up against the wall and you’ll realize all you can do is say, “I’m sorry, I’m doing things my way this time!”  That’s the earth-shattering moment you stop planning for someone else’s expectations and start making progress on what’s truly important to YOU.  That’s when you begin to live life according to your own morals and values.  And that’s when you can finally be happy and free. -- via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2015/01/04/12-little-habits-that-stole-your-happiness-last-year/

I am thankful for all those who said no,, because of them, I did it myself. 
Self-worth comes from one thing: thinking that you are worthy. So be confident. Far too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when you accept everything you are, and aren’t, that you will truly find happiness and success. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2012/09/26/11-promises-you-must-make-to-yourself/

Emotionally strong people choose to see the good in others. Because the truth is, the world is full of good people. Whoever says otherwise hasn’t looked around. So look around. Appreciate them. Connect and smile together. -- via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/06/15/16-things-emotionally-strong-people-dont-do/

Things to let go of to become happier and in the moment. 
In the fall of 2002, after a stressful day at work, I snapped at Angel and locked myself in our home office to work on a web application I had been coding on the side.  My grandmother, who was living with us at the time, knocked on the office door a few minutes later.  “What?” I screamed.  She didn’t answer.  When I opened the door in frustration, she smiled and said, “Honey, someday you will think it’s funny that you were so darn serious today.”

Boy was she right.  And now, every time I catch myself entering a bout of stress-induced irritability, I take a deep breath and do my best to let it GO.  Today, I encourage you to do the same.

Truth be told, today is the oldest you’ve ever been and the youngest you will ever be again.  It’s kind of scary, but it’s true.  If there was ever a perfect day to start letting go of the needless drama and stress that’s been holding you back, that day is today.  And since we often use our birthdays as mile markers to track our personal growth and accomplishments, I challenge you to this:

Before your next birthday…

Caldo de camaron from Casa Mendoza, Tracy, CA

One of my friend's suggested that I start posting healthy options from restaurants on my blog. For my first post, the best option I found at Casa Mendoza is the Caldo de camaron, which is a tomato based shrimp soup with 2 different kinds squash, carrots and potatoes. I didn't eat the potatoes, just had the veggies and shrimp. This dish was loaded with shrimp, I was stuffed before I could finish! <3
