Man... turning 22 this week is crazy! I remember being 16, in an abusive household, mad at the world with no positive thoughts on life. I was always looking for the next best thing to give me some sort of gratitude. It’s crazy how that was ONLY 6 years ago. It feels like it was just yesterday where I was partying all the time, had no plan and no sense of what I was going to do. I was always a smart kid, but I didn’t come from a privileged family. I was poor, lived in the ‘ghetto’, and had a broken family. I was fed expired food all the time after my parents got divorced and just decided not to eat all together. I would walk to the laundry mat to do my laundry because my ‘Dad’ refused to let me use the washing machine in the house...ya know, unnecessary shit. Also, imagine living with a hoarder (dad) who loved his stuff more than he loved you 🤯. BUT THEN in 2012 I got my first job at SONIC... I worked my ass off until 2am every night & when Senior year came around, I begged my mom to let me move in with her in San Diego. That’s when my life changed forever! Fast forward to 6 years later - I have a beautiful daughter, a wonderful, loving husband, 2 dogs (which I’ve ALWAYS WANTED growing up) my OWN CAR (a really nice one, too!) , and a place where I can call home. But also - I’m a Marine. One of my proudest accomplishments. Don’t let anyone say you CANNOT DO IT and just fucking do it. Screw the haters 🙌🏼 you CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE into how you want it. Don’t let a crappy living or financial situation get you down... you will grow and you will get out of it. Sometimes all you need is for someone to believe in you. 💕 that’s all #trustyourstruggle #usmc #femalemarine #strong

Left Picture: (June 2010) I was 21 years old and an HM3 in the Navy. The picture was taken as I was starting the process to switch over into the Marine Corps. I was overweight, lacked self confidence, had zero self direction, my physical fitness was non-existent. Worst part was, that I was perfectly content with being mediocre physically and mentally.
Right Picture: 27 years old. Sergeant of Marines. Enough said.

In the morning you gon' need an answer
Ain't nobody gonna change the standard
It's not enough to just feel the flame
You've gotta burn your old self away
Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

Shout out to Pvt Stephanie Mora for accepting the challenge and earning the title United States Marine. This is what she said of what being a Marine means to her: “I don’t know what’s in store for me even if I might have an idea, but that’s what is so great about the Marine Corps. There will always be something bigger than what you’re ready for lying ahead of you; and to me, being a Marine means you’re ready to tackle it no matter what. You live by the Marine Corps values of honor, courage, commitment day by day. You finish tasks not because someone told you to, but because it’s simply in your nature to put in work before you’re expected to. Being a Marine also means having a strong leader mindset all the time so you can be a role model to your peers. Once you’re part of the brotherhood/sisterhood, your individuality goes away and you’re now taking care of other Marines before yourself. Either you give it 100%, or you don’t try at all.”-Sgt Escobar. Congratulations Marine. I am extremely proud of you and am looking forward to seeing you achieve greatness.

Happy birthday to my beautiful loving wife @steph_ochoa324. This woman grinds harder than anybody I’ve ever known. She’s putting in work from the beginning of the day until literally almost the end of the day. Being a recruiter is tough, especially both of us being active duty Marines. But we wouldn’t have it any other way. We chose this life. A hard life. Because it’s the hardest things in life that makes everything that much sweeter. We don’t care for the easy route. Matter of fact she’s putting in work right now trying to put the elite into our Corps. I love you my bride. Hope you’re having a great day. #happybirthday #wifey #usmc #marines #femalemarine #sexy #loveredonher #myeverything #noordinarylove #recruiter #grind #beautiful #amazing #lovemylife

#FlexFriday ... Stop putting yourself in a box and don’t let anyone place you there... be who you are regardless of what people think... most importantly empower those who dont know how to get out the box...
.
I worked out back/biceps and will go back for legs 😜... who else is working out today?

Ima let you know how bad ass you are. Ima let you know how beautiful you are. Ima let you know how inspiring you are. Ima let you know that hairstyle, makeup, clothing looks AAAAAMAZING on yo cute self 🖤 I’ve always had that “resting bitch face” but have always been told once they get to know me I’m a loyal and true friend. I hold our bond, our friendship and our unity dear. We bring each other up. We each other’s hype girls. We there when the tough days become tough weeks. It’s just unfortunate when I hear scuttlebutt and question, was our friendship really real throughout all these years? I will still be kind and not talk down on those who poke my back when I’m not lookin. But just know that once you lost my friendship we become acquaintances. #nobetterfriend #noworstenemy #military #alphas can work together #femalemarine #staffsarge #itgetslonely

Inspiration and passion are gifts. When my military career ended unexpectedly I felt lost and without direction. I’ve drifted ever since, never feeling called to any other job or life.
My bike and my motorcycle club have changed all of that.
Las Leonas beanies arrived today and I’m feeling proud as hell.
