About Me

Finding simple ways to live a joyful life

What is Vida Salveo?

Vida” means life in Spanish and “Salveo” means to be in good health in Latin. That’s what I’m all about. I will share some life adventures and discoveries I’ve made and continue to learn along the way to support an overall well-being and growth for you and the ones around you. I strive to live life in good health. Join me!

Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits. – Thomas Jefferson

Meet the Writer

I’m Leila Díaz-Thamer, a Puerto Rican native, married to my best friend, a loving and encouraging husband. I homeschool our two girls, volunteer for a non-profit organization, love to write, read, and exercise daily. How do I do it all? Well…I’m wonderful like that!

Ladies, please?!  N O – O N E – I S!!!

I have many things to be grateful for, but I’ve also learned to be intentional. I’ve grown from failures, from loss, illness and from my own mistakes I’ve learned to embrace life’s curve-balls. I’ve learned to ask for help because I can’t do it all. Hard lesson for me. I’m thankful for all I have, but I continue to work every day to maintain what I’ve gained in life and earn more.

I drink a cup of hot tea every evening and I start my day with a nutritious homemade flax & berry shake. Reading is my mental exercise. When it comes to wine, I must admit I do not discriminate. If it came from a grape, I’ll drink it. As an islander, I love the ocean. Enjoy diving, but it soothes me just to stare and listen the waves come and go.

Above it all, God’s guidance is what I seek.

Join me on this journey of learning, growth and improvement. Sharing experiences to inspire a well lived, healthier and happy life.

Live…..with a purpose

Love…..yourself for you are a child of God

Inspire…..others around you

“Like me, I’m sure you have been touched by the videos of people applauding #healthworkers from their balconies, or the stories of people offering to do grocery shopping for older people in their community.

This amazing spirit of human solidarity must become even more infectious than the #coronavirus itself. Although we may have to be physically apart from each other for a while, we can come together in ways we never have before”- @drtedros #COVID19 
We’re all in this together. And we can only succeed together.

Es interesante ver cómo se reacciona ante emergencias. Quien recuerda donde estaba el 9 de septiembre de 2001 (9/11)? Anticipo que este  momento histórico que vivimos se impregnara en nuestros recuerdos marcando otro momento inolvidable en nuestras vidas. 
No era mi intención escribir un post relacionado a la situación que vivimos, pero ante tanta ansiedad y luego de recibir tantas preguntas de familia y amistades sentí que era importante compartir información básica en esta plataforma.

I am happy and excited to enter a new decade of life!  I want to freeze time.  I know that for many it may cause you pain, thoughts of regrets, frustration and maybe sadness. Not me. I do reflect on the past but have learned to appreciate the present and embrace the future with joy. That learning process has not been easy, but it is part of who I am today. 
Check out my recent post as I reflect on "freezing time"
