A Message from Rosangel Perez – Creator of Cafecito Break
Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up. – unknown
Cafecito Break first debuted on WBAI 99.5 FM in NYC, March 2012 as part of WBAI’s Women’s Day Celebration. Our show topic was, “Are You Hearing The Wild Woman Call?”, referring to hearing your intuition and allowing it to guide you. This was such a special experience for me because I was able to fulfill a dream I had been imagining in my head since childhood. I always wanted to be a radio dj.
My immense gratitude for WBAI and for my Spiritual Mentor, Nina Riley who recommended that I submit my show idea. While sadly, I do not own a copy of that first show, I have a beautiful pic from that day. 🙂
The music of the show is yet another story…
“Starting over begins when I develop a reawakened appreciation for what I already have, a renewed recognition of what I’ve recklessly forsaken, a rehabilitated understanding that I foolishly do both of those things, and a revitalized commitment to live the rest of my life never doing either of them again.” ― Craig D. Lounsbrough
One of Cafecito Break’s main theme songs… the spanish jazzy sounding one… is a song that for a long time was sitting unfinished. It was a hard reminder of a project that went sour. Now when I listen to the music, I am grateful that I was guided to “re-purpose it.”
We start the show with gratitude.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~Melody Beattie
Gratitude has opened me to such a beautiful awareness that keeps expanding every day. When my father passed away, I set the intention to live my life with an active gratitude practice. As a result of the life changing experience with gratitude, “The Gratitude Movement“ on Facebook was created, as well as the following Meetups. The Gratitude Movement and Gratitude Church. All of my current endeavors have one thing in common… I have set the intention to honor the space and time I share with others. Life is so fleeting. I want to make sure I take it all in.
Integrating it all:
Cafecito Break allows me to integrate my love for media, people, what I’m learning in my holistic journey, the people I meet, and more.
One of my favorites is working alongside of the women like Ruthie Guten and Alex Perez
