  • Columna: El mundo es como lo vemos

    “Es hasta que estás contenta contigo misma que tiendes a ver a tu alrededor de una manera positiva.”

    Por: Gabriella Smith

    Por mi escoliosis avanzada tuve que someterme a una operación de columna a los 15 años. Esta operación -que me tituló como “robotina” en el colegio-, se convirtió en la oportunidad perfecta para incorporar rutinas de ejercicio desde temprana edad. Más allá de un cambio físico, emocionalmente, siento que me enseñó sobre mis limitaciones físicas, la importancia de aceptar mi cuerpo y sobre todo, de quererlo.

    Les puedo asegurar que a partir de esa experiencia me convertí en un espíritu libre, ahora me encanta probar diferentes deportes, entre ellos natación, spinning y yoga, pero definitivamente mi favorito es el cardio con pesas. Poco a poco entendí que sentirme bien física y emocionalmente es sumamente importante para entregar lo mejor de mí, como mamá, esposa y mujer emprendedora, pues es hasta que estás contenta contigo misma que tiendes a ver a tu alrededor de una manera positiva, entendemos que el mundo es como lo vemos.

    Me gusta destacar el wellness en la moda, hace dos años comencé mi fundación de The UpCycle Project, una iniciativa que cambió mi vida totalmente de manera efectiva, pues me hizo modificar la forma en que compraba y valoraba mi ropa, ahora me siento más feliz, más creativa y con mayor libertad para innovar a través de mis looks.

    “It’s not until you are comfortable in your own skin that you can start having a positive outlook on the world around you”

    By: Gabriella Smith

    Because of my advanced scoliosis, I had to endure backbone surgery when I was fifteen years-old. This operation -which gave me the name “Robotina” at school -, turned into the perfect opportunity to incorporate exercise routines into my life from an earlyage. Beyond just physical change, it had the emotional impact of showing me my limitations and the importance of accepting my body and -above all -to take good care of it.

    I can assure you that ever since then, I’ve become a free spirit: I love to trydifferent sports, amongst which have been swimming, spinning and yoga, but my definite favorite is cardio with weights. Little by little, I understood that feeling well physically and emotionally is crucial to giving the best of me, as a mother, a wife and a businesswoman: it’s not until you are comfortable in your own skin that you can start having a positive outlook on the world around you. The world is as you see it.

    I try to incorporate wellness into my daily life with a routine that helps me stay organized; for example, I always do exercise in the morning. In the afternoon, I am at home with my husband and the kids -I try to be present when I’m with them. I also try to keep my social media positive, and surround myself with people who do me good. I like to work with wellness in fashion: two years ago, I started my NGO The UpCycle Project, an initiative that changed my life completely, as it transformed the way I bought and valued clothes. I now feel happier, more creative and with a greater freedomto innovate through my looks.
