Achieve the life of your dreams NOW!

Many times throughout my writing you will hear me say,

there is no other time than now. This is probably the most Truthful thing I will ever speak in this lifetime.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the funds right now,

or if the environment isn’t right—it really doesn’t.

Ask yourself, what can I do right now to bring me closer to my goals?

There is always something you can do right now, trust me.

Maybe it’s build a vision board or at least writing down your goals.

Maybe it’s drawing a picture on paper or writing a song.

There is always something you can do right now.

The thing that tells you there is nothing you can do right now, is the same thing that’s going to keep you in the same place you’re currently in.

Believe me when I say, there is no other time than Now.

The future hasn’t happened yet

and past already did.

What other moment is there?

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step

Tao Te Ching
Lao Tzu

When will you take that first step?

Tomorrow? Yesterday?

How about this present moment? That’s all that’s happening right now and ever will.

There will never be a moment you are in that isn’t the present one.

You will never stand in the future and say I am in the future.

You will never go back to the past and say I am in the past.

You are only every Here and Now.

Use this to your advantage and start today.

Start now.

Have you seen the new site?

As my goals change and grow, so does this site.

I’m excited to present it’s new layout. It’s not seem as aesthetic as the last theme but in my eyes, it is.

Clean, simple, straightforward. What do you think?

Other than that, I’m looking forward to the new avenues that present itself to me.

I’ve been resting and healing these past few days from getting my wisdom teeth removed. It hasn’t been that fun.

I must say having the days off from work has been nice for my mental health but physically, it’s been pretty brutal. I must have slept over 100 hours since Saturday.

But I’m sure it’s what I needed.

It’s Wednesday and I can move my jaw a bit more.

Returning to society means being careful with how big I smile and how hard I laugh, at least until I’ve fully healed.

At some point I’ll get these stiches removed—not too sure when that might be and honestly, I’m not looking forward to that either. It sounds as painful as when they put them in.

Well, that’s the update. I look forward to seeing My Love again this weekend, as I usually do.

What have you been up to? Sorry I’ve been away for such a time, a break was well needed.

Either way, I’m back! And I’ll be trudging through a new article I have to submit soon. Nerve-wrecking but exciting: the story of my life.

Ta-ta for now!

YOU, reading this right now, yes YOU,

Thank you.

Thank you for being alive and thank you for reading this.

Before I lose you for a sec,

I’d like you to know how special you are—now wait! Bare with me a sec,

did you know there is no one else alive exactly like you?

Did you know that you offer something to this world that no one else can?

Do you know how powerful that makes you?

We are in a world where anything is bascially possible. Look around,

there are literally 10-13 year old’s becoming millionaires off the internet right now. Doesn’t that sound a bit ridiculous?

The truth of the matter is,

anything is possible.

Do what you want to do because you are capable.

Be who you want to be because you are capable.

It always seems impossible until it is done

Nelson Mandela

Be your greatest starting today, starting now. There is no other time.

Choose to be your ideal self today!

Take on the world, today!

Be who you came to be.

Do it. Do it now.

Go!

What can I say when there’s nothing to be said?

Articles tell me this blog should be more informative.

My gut tells me otherwise.

I don’t want to do what the algorithm thinks should be done.

I’m here to do what I think should be done.

And if that means screaming my heart out into the void in hopes maybe one person hears it,

so be it.

thewritingsofnatalia will be what I intended it to be from the beginning and more.

I can do it all and no one can stop me.

I’ve thought about leaving WordPress for better features.

But then what of my WP readers?

How will you hear me now?

This decision lays low in my head as I continue to work with what I have.

I’m sure I’ll find a way.

The day has just begun and I’m lucky I’ve allowed myself to write this.

Sometimes that’s all you need; your own permission to do things.

Crazy, isn’t it?

I hope your day is well despite any challenges you may encounter.

Remember your inner power;

you can get through anything.

You already have.

-Natalia

How open is the sky for you?

No matter where I look,

opportunity is what I see.

I’m excited for what the future holds, even if it seems scary.

It’s Tuesday and I will wake up early from now on. How could I not?

There’s just not enough hours in the day to do what needs to be done.

I am driven. I am motivated.

I will succeed.

This is how I’m feeling this month.

Let’s pray it stays.

Summer days, we watch come to it’s end

It’s going to be 100ยฐ today near my home in Los Angeles.

At the moment, My Love and I make our way further to the coast to enjoy our remaining days of warmth.

These days, I do enjoy.

And still my heart settles inside, waiting for that break of fall.

I look forward to the coming months; whatever they may bring.

Like time, I watch the sun rise and fall in front of me;

feeling the air switch from warm to cool then back to warm again.

I hope you enjoy these days too.

There’s nothing else we really can do.

The nature of things just happen;

you can either embrace it

or resist it for a lifetime.

And we all know nothing good comes from resistance.

Anyways, I’ll be here;

soaking in the sun,

feeling the ocean’s touch.

How are you enjoying these days?

I’d love to know.

Days get brighter and cloudier

As the minutes pass, the fog thickens amongst the mountains and my home. I wonder how the ride to work will be.

You’d think as the day begins, the fog would lessen. But between each moment I look out my window, it seems to only grow.

A mysterious day indeed…

It’s Friday and I look forward to a weekend not filled with studying and cramming.

Instead I hope for the sun

and a day at the beach.

With this chill and fog, that idea seems a bit distant.

Do you have plans for this weekend?

I intend to finish my work today smoothly and effortlessly. I wish the same for you as well.

I think about the changes of life that await me, wondering how it will all go down.

Until then, I am here; under the fog and all; riding my bike to Destiny.

Talk later?

“I’m almost there” in a place of no destination

As this site grows, I have no other choice but to grow with it.

Recently, I’ve finished my Therapeutic Yoga certification course. And I passed.

With deadlines and more tasks, I ask myself where a break for me lays.

Thinking about this made me realize I never really will get a break. At least not anytime soon.

No, I won’t. And that’s okay.

I’m learning to incorporate self-care and rest into my ever-growing and changing life. I think with this balance, I never will need a break.

How do I expect to run a multi-billion dollar company? Where does a break lie in that?

My business is a well-oiled machine, is an affirmation that comes to mind.

A break lies in the same place my business runs on it’s own. Until then, there will be no breaking. Just moving forward.

I’m being careful as I feel my body fall into a state of exhaustion. Rest, it says.

I woke up earlier today than usual and I pray it continues.

I intend for my work day to be a short one so I can come home and work on myself.

How are your days lately? Are they busy like mine? What’s your biggest challenge?

I find myself looking for more answers outside than I should but dear reader, I ask, what advice can you share with me in this time of need?

I’ll be here, under the grey clouds of LA this week; not complaining, no. Resting and awaiting your answer.

-Natalia

Staying awake is harder than it looks

I mean this in every way possible.

It seems as if no matter how much I sleep, there’s still so much more to be done.

I will continue with my studies today as my deadline draws closer and closer.

Maybe this is the motivation I needed.

I’m sitting here drinking chai that’s a bit too sweet but it’s fine because I could use it.

Hopefully, it works.

What are you doing today? How’s the weather where you are?

It’s sunny and warm here in the San Gabriel Valley of LA with a nice breeze.

I’ll be inside, studying away until later this evening when I leave to my day job.

I’ll be here if you need me.

-Natalia

The bumps on my arms raise at words of wonder

No matter how silent,

how still,

I can hear the calling of Wonder.

Come to me, come to me, it sings and hums.

My family asks why I left home so early to which my response is,

can’t you hear it too?

The calling,

it’s so loud.

In the stillness of Nature,

through the forests of dark and light,

I travel;

travel far and through, bare on foot.

The world tosses me keys of promise, offering shoes for comfort and medicine for my dreams;

I heard of no such things from my elders.

They too, walked on foot;

through mountains of sticks and stones,

stronger than the forces that bless us on seasons.

Can’t you hear it too?

The call of Wonder?

How beautiful it sounds.

Come to me, come to me.

Will you answer?
