Life Unfiltered

What do you want to be known for? Have you ever asked yourself that question?

I bet without even realizing it, you screen your Instagram photos based on your answer to it. What would our albums look like if we all posted our outtakes instead of the ones we’ve carefully selected to share? 

I think we’d realize that we are all much more alike than we are different. We’re all flawed.  We all yearn for acceptance.  And deep down, we know it’ll be easier to find or follow our purpose when we embrace our outtakes.  But how do we get ourselves to that place of vulnerability? 

We can look to our friends from La Cuchilla for some help. Meet Karmen and Aldon. They didn’t ask us to take these photos multiple times. Sometimes there is no option but to be vulnerable. They live every day unfiltered.

And that goes for their water and homes too. The people of La Cuchilla ration out foggy water just to survive. They’ve woven shelter out of twigs and old pieces of trash. 


Their lives are so different from ours.

And yet, it is in their reflection that we see our potential to live life unfiltered. 

Despite the daily struggles and heartbreak and exhaustion, they are living proof that vulnerability pushes. It may be uncomfortable, but it pushes you to seek out a true purpose in this life, something that will bring you hope in all of life's most trying seasons. 


Many villagers of La Cuchilla have told us their most earnest wish is to find their purpose. They ask themselves the same question we do: “What do I want to be known for?” These next two weeks we invite you to join us for a couple of unique fundraising events and help us raise money to create jobs for women in La Cuchilla (event details below). 

We all need one another so deeply. We need the villagers of La Cuchilla to teach us about living life in a very raw way; without filters.

They need us to give them the acceptance we all yearn for by investing in jobs which give them the opportunity to find their purpose for the first time ever. 


I am, you are, we all are: individuals, dreamers, victims, apprentices, ambassadors, advocates, lovers, educators, health providers. We are the change makers. Let’s live our lives in such a way that when we look at the big picture it needs no filter, because it tells the world exactly what we want to be know for.
