Miami Social’s season finale wraps up as a controversial, daring, volatile and (believe it or not) thought-provoking show for some … yet for others, Miami Social will leave footprints of an ever-evolving, vibrant, edgy, bustling metropolis renowned for its colorful skyline, tourism, fashion, and nightlife, as well as a Mecca for international business.
“The Magic City” has weathered hurricanes, riots, scandals, corruption, crime, racial tension, political turmoil and endless waves of immigration, only to bounce back with impetuous audacity and so too will the cast of Miami Social, right? (OR SO I PRAY WE WILL MAKE IT OUT ALIVE!!!!! Ha!)
Miami Social’s finale was a moving experience … watching George in such emotional turmoil and almost palpable pain makes me want to reach and instill a sense of self love in him. I felt his mother’s pain since I have grown to appreciate a mother’s instinctual and unconditional love. Sorah is beautiful inside and out and I know that she is torn by George’s self-destructive path, yet she deserves her own happiness. Hardy is a genuine individual who has earned my respect and admiration. Michael is my funny, sincere, overly-sensitive dear, dear friend — good as they come and truly transparent, which is what I love most about him. We had some fun scenes together this season and I look forward to many more! I smile as I write that because we couldn’t “script” those scenes if we tried! They just happen and that chemistry we have on camera is REAL and priceless!!!! Last but not least Ariel, my friend … you are a brilliant mind and I have always seen the genuine nature deep down in your soul. Underneath it all, the lover and the poet are all compact in you. I never judge others … always attempt to learn and understand why people act and react the way they do … there is always a reason. I know Ariel will find inner peace; I have faith. As far as I am concerned I am far from perfection but Shakespeare said it best – “A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.” I love you guys. See you at The Gansevoort!
I praise the producers, cameramen, and staff involved in the production of Miami Social for their professionalism, their respect, and mostly for the most enticing views of Miami I have ever seen.
As I write the last blog for the season, I would like to share a few experiences that have had an impact in my life. Someone once said “No one who achieves success does so without the help of others, the wise, and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.” I’ve received amazing feedback from Miami Social viewers, and I am forever grateful for the support. In fact, I have tears rolling down my face as I write this to you all AND … I AM NOT A CRIER! Ha! I can’t begin to express just how thankful I am that I have the opportunity to inspire and help others. At the end of the day, that’s all I desire. Peace, Love, and Happiness. Our time on earth is so very short; let’s celebrate life!
After reading your feedback on:
I would like to address a few topics which seem to be of interest:
The first one is “DRIVE.”
Since it is the question I get asked the most by friends, clients, colleagues, interviewers, and even perfect strangers. You may be thinking, "What is she talking about? Drive...? The drive that makes a person want to achieve a certain goal ... The drive that makes one person more successful than others …The drive that makes you want to wake up in the morning and go full speed towards achieving your goals. Ambition, clout, effort, energy, enterprise, get-up-and-go, guts, impellent, impetus, impulse, initiative, momentum, motivation, motive, pep, pressure, push, spunk, steam, vigor, vitality ... WHAT FUELS YOUR FIRE...? Get the drift?
Thanks Katrina for your final blog on Miami Social. I feel that I was meant to read it today for I have been feeling a bit lost in the direction I need to go in my career...it is like there is more in this life God has given me but it feels so out of reach. I will look into Esoteric Astrology; perhaps it will give me some guidance. Thank you again, and may you remain blessed and stay on the path of encouraging others. Shine on my sister...shine on.
Katrina ... love your style, charm and the way you are. The ones from Atlanta could learn from you. Michael is a gem ... you are both a pleasure to watch!
I loved the vest/wrap sleeveless blouse Katrina wore at the showing of the house, when she had to jump on board with the pencil skirt. Where can i find it? Also, if you are reading, Katrina, you are gorgeous, your body is so fit, i wish i had your drive to juggle success, friends, training. Congratulations... Mariana
I only watched because of you!!! your sense of style was something I looked forward to each week ... Now if I can only get my hair with as much volume ... LOL ...
1st...you are soooooooooooooo beautiful! (2nd) I wish you and your husband would find a way to make your marriage work, I'm not really sure why you broke up, but you should be a wife, your heart will never be the same, you will never love the way you loved your husband or the way he loves you. You will see, when you are home at night wondering what he's doing, who's he sleeping with, or you finding someone for you. Lets face it, if you find someone your age, he's sooner or later will want someone younger, it's too much temptation there. Marriage is suppose to be forever, dating brings bad things out of people, abuse, rape, disease's. I hope you will work things out sooner than later, it's hard for him to take you back if you have been with someone else! Good luck in life and your Business! God bless!
I have lived in Miami for 10 years. Loved the show. I think you guys are great. When will season two start? Can't wait!!
YOU ARE GREAT!!!!!!
I can tell you honestly that I am originally from New York and lived in Miami for two and a half years (and did NOT have a good experience at all) and have only watched Miami Social once to remind myself of why I moved back. (Not you guys particularly, I'm just not into the ostentatious and superficial lifestyle) but despite all of that, I must say, I AM REALLY HAPPY THAT YOU REPRESENT Miami!!!! Sure, Miami is not for me or many people but you are a beautiful, smart and positive person and even though you have different interests and aspirations, I totally admire and respect that in you. May your success and happiness be forever multiplied. Sending you BIG LOVE from New York!!!! :))))
You were by far the most interesting and entertaining person on the show. We were all sad to see you broke up with your husband. He is a really cute, handsome guy! He is a total hottie!!!
How come Katrina does not even mention Maria on her last blog? She mentioned everyone else but her!!!
It is certainly interesting for me to read the article. Thank you for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to this matter. I definitely want to read a bit more soon.
