I went to a yoga class last night, and our teacher started talking about a Miracles workshop she's been attending. She said the most powerful thing she walked away with was the idea of the perfect Company. One where everyone did only what they liked to do, and never had to do what they weren't good at or didn't like....and I immediately thought to myself, "well then, you could never be an entrepreneur, and certainly never work in construction.." and then proceeded to fall out of my headstand.
Running a company isn't easy. Accounting is not my favorite thing to do. I'm not good at drawing. Every decision on a job site isn't easy (like getting an investor to keep this tile!!!) But I do what I have to do, even if I don't like doing it, because I am building more than just an entity that makes money. I am building a future. I need to understand where I am and where I'm going. I'm not the smartest one in the room, and I stay for the meetings I don't "need" to be at or details I don't "need" to hear because that's how you get to the next level. Doing things the right way is often never the easiest way or the way we "love" to do it. But we do. So to my lovely yoga teacher - your Company doesn't exist, and if it does, it ain't in this life!

This has been my week for the most part with the exception of a flooring project that we just started demo on yesterday. 🙌🏻 we had some minor hiccups 🤦🏻♂️but overall the week was good and decently productive. #swipe

Sometimes I remain to observe the decorations on the facades of the buildings. I get lost in the details of shapes and colors. The nice thing about Arab architecture is that it seems to be embroidered.
Some of you might wonder how I pay for travel or not lol it is expensive though and company paid in my case. I'm an electrician, fore(wo)man actually. I don't get to choose where I go either but regardless, I find adventure.
It might be too early to make this call, but I have to say that I really think THIS semester is going to be my best one ever! I’m really loving my Soils & Foundations class; I know it sounds boring but it’s actually so relevant to my work and so interesting to me!🤓 I’m not trying to brag or be super cheesy, but I am just so freaking proud to be exactly where I am today!💁🏼♀️ My work life finally matches my academic life & they’re both something that I’m truly passionate about! This is something I’ve been dreaming about for years and it feels just as good as I thought it would!☺️ Of course, I can’t deny that I could be farther along in this journey if I hadn’t changed my major (twice🙈) or if I would have just chosen the right path first. But I choose to be thankful for my story because I learned so much about myself along the way.💕 I wouldn’t be who I am now without all of those ups and downs, lessons learned & challenges to face. I feel happier, stronger and more motivated than I’ve ever felt before and I can feel the momentum happening!💪🏻 Bring it on Winter Semester, this Mrs is ready for ya!😉 #collegelifestyle#womeninconstruction#ibuild#wifelife💍 #homebodylife#coffeeinhand#studytime📚 #homebodylife#motivatedmindset#prepareforsuccess#timemanagementskills#progressnotperfect#beproactivenotreactive#newyearnewhabits#happyandblessed

Throwback Thursday- 2008
Enjoy your life, enjoy your metabolism, enjoy your body. Stop comparing yourself to anyone and everyone. You are perfectly imperfect just the way you are and You will never be this young again.
10 years from now you will look at today’s picture and wish you had that body, that energy, that youth.
The same will happen 10 years from then too.
The things you complain about today will be what you wish you still had as you get older. #tbt#womeninconstruction#chickswholift#stlouis#resolution#fit#strongispretty

✨ CO-FOUNDER ✨
Hi Engineering Gals!
My name is Maritza, also known as @bravouniverse and I am the co-founder of #EngineeringGals 💕
I am currently working as a civil engineer in training at the nation's largest Port 🇺🇸. I mainly work in construction management 👷♀️, so my team and I manage projects for the Port. Projects range from rail, water, sewer, roads, dredging, buildings, terminals and much more!
I studied civil engineering at Long Beach State University 📚 with @amydeepkaur and I thought it'd be a great idea for us to create @engineeringgals in order to inspires girls 👭 to become engineers and supports women in engineering.
Thank you all for following our entrepreneural journey of the creation of Engineering Gals 💜 and thank you for helping us reach 2K followers!
Keep an 👀 out for more content 🎉

#progress this project has been so special for a variety of reasons. The amazing #veterans family, how long these folks lived with a unfinished bathroom, to the experience they suffered through w a previous pm. And this job has been nothing short of a eventful. We discovered a lot of damage and a lot of health hazards in their home while we were here. Our timeline isn’t being met unfortunately but it’s looking beautiful in their home will be whole and healthier because of our time here. Sometimes you have to just see the beauty in things and trust your higher power to carry you through the storm.
