How to be a Morning Person?

5500199a11a47-health-benefits-being-single-xln

Good Evening Everyone I made it to the end of the day I am here posting this blog because mornings for me are made to sleep, but took me a while to become a morning person, but one thing I noticed that called my attention that keeps me up 5:30am every single day…. is that really sucks! That is right, it sucks to be up 5:30 am is too early.  The real question is what you missing if you go to bed early? It is maybe the time you go to bed. Most people complaint of waking up but we never complain about going to bed early, right? The great news is there a solution on the way, a common ground to be up running every morning on your workweek.

I used to be excited for so many things when I was a child… great times… but was never excited to go to school and wake up so early. It was always a drag! Here my common tips to practice daily basis.

Prepare: Before going to bed a night before I prepare everything beforehand my outfit, shoes, my purse, and make sure I won’t forget anything. Program my coffee machine which saves me a bunch of time.

Going to Bed in the right time: I mean right time! Not 11pm, midnight, 1am. Having my holy 8 hours of sleep is a must. I know the best time will be average 7 hrs everyone’s bodies are different. I do hit 6-8 hours weekly average according to my fit bit. The stress can affect your nights of sleep, also the alcohol so keeps in balance and in check with all those.

Get up:  Alarm Clock shouts on your room, and what you do? Snooze it! Wrong, get your ass out of the bed! Once you listen – Get the Hell Up! Sometimes accidentally it won’t wake you up again! Believe, it has happened to me. I learned in a hard way.

Move: Make your bed get active and get the mojo going.

Get Set: Get your fresh Coffee !!!! Jump in the Shower, Set your makeup and wear your set up outfit. Done! Ready to walk out of the door feeling brand new and ready to smash!

I am sure by the time you nail all this you will feel so awake and so good that you will take your morning to another level.

I remember when I changed jobs schedules and it was hard to go work from 1pm-6pm to 7am to 3pm. It was a lot of difference. Plus last year I had to stay 3 months away from work due to immigration paperwork and this year I had 2 months away from work due to a surgery. Your body needs to catch up on and off. It can make a mess!

I know is not always easy to wake up and feel energized enough to deal with all what is going to happen during the day. It is all about routine. Also the happiness of your home, environment, and work satisfaction. I know is not always perfect. Try to look to the beautiful things you still can reap the benefits and then you will feel relief and balanced.

I hate mornings too, and that is not a secret potion to change that but if you put the effort and the mental work and make the morning more enjoyable you will have better mornings, better Mondays, and better days.

Day 2 in Sao Paulo – Samba, Pagode e Capirinhas.

Probably you know  SP is a huge city with a total of 12 million people not counting with lots of cars and traffic. Despite the feeling of overwhelming emotions and excitement. We did not hesitate to enjoy the nice sites and the beautiful things the city has to offer. we know Sao Paulo can be a threat in the criminality levels but we did not want to think like that otherwise we would be 10 days fearful than happy enjoying the time of our lives. Unfortunately, we spent only 10 days, but if you have only 10 days is ok, you still can do a lot of things. I tell you that minute I landed I see how things are small and apparently out of shape. Sao Paulo is one of the biggest city with high up buildings all overs, apartments, and businesses are the deal in SP Capital.

Unfortunately, we spent only 10 days, but if you have only 10 days is ok, you still can do a lot of things. I can certainly tell you that the minute I landed I see how things are small and apparently out of shape. Sao Paulo is one of the biggest city with high up buildings all overs, apartments, and businesses are the deal in SP Capital, a mixture of old and new buildings and every curve.

I just had a great first day and enjoyed a family gathering and plannings throughout the rest of the week with friends.

We stayed in 1 Hotel the first week at Jardins by Paulista Av.

Sundays Paulista Av. Closes down and people can do walks, biking and enjoy an afternoon taking pictures and see the demographic spirit of the city most visited street with high buildings.

We did narrow 10 days to do things Matt as a gringo never seen but a lot of the things that were on our list was not able o check it out because he had it zero interest.

If you don’t like museums and arts skip that crap go to other events and parts of town.

Now, if you love bars, restaurants the city can give you great choices.

As a truly Brazilian, I want to experience my roots and that is filling myself what is authentically challenging to be found in the US –  cheese bread, pizza rodizio, Brazilian style hot dogs which is the best one in the country, pastel and of course samba, Feijoada e caipirinhas. 

Feijoada:

Surprise Reunion 2017 -Sao Paulo – Brazil

I have been dreaming of this day, I have been making a plan before my father past away I planned to see them waiting for me at the airport but when he past away I could not see my father, I could attend the funeral it was horrifying because I was waiting for my legal documentations and in the process I did not have a humanitarian ability to leave for such cause, my heart was shutter in peace’s and if I moved back I would never be able to accomplish my dreams here in the US. I had to find strength, pray, and simply hold myself into the arms of faith and God. It was hard brutally hard, losing my father changed everything and certainly nothing is the same when a loved one leaves everything seems different.

I wait so long to apply for my residence in the US and finally last year one day after election my case approved and I received my green card days later, it was an emotional rollercoaster with ups and downs.

I always thought I would be able to visit my family right away but certainly it did not happen, even though I got my documents I need the money for it and that would take years to save up and see them.

I always want to celebrate my birthday with my twin sister which is hard to live apart. It was hard but we still love each other, after dad past away our relationship just got stronger. I need to celebrate our birthdays one day so was a dream but not a plan.

This year is been the best year of my life I have a good job, I met a great man in my life that God rewards me with it, such an angel, hard worker and intelligent man who dreams and fight for the best for us. We are dating for less than a year but he is the best boyfriend I had in my life, there is no complaint whatsoever. We have a good relationship and very nurturing.

He shines me with a laugh, smile, and love. He makes me the best women in the world with qualities and differences. He took care of me when I had to go thru a tough hip surgery and every time he sees me off mood he cheers me up.

Matt always want to travel together somewhere but is hard for me with the hip surgery and after post-op would be ideal but I mentioned that first of taking off to another country I want to see my family and take care my father assets and see spend time with them after done I know I can go anywhere else. The last trip I had in my life was in 2006 where I spend 1 week at Disney World Orlando by myself it was fun but for some people was weird. I had a bless.

Flight tickets are expensive and I don’t have credit cards and my credit score is ok but apparently I don’t get nothing approved I have a good full-time job for a social media company and pay the bills but don’t give me a silver life.

Anyways, Matt and I decided this September for my bday to surprise my twin sister and with her best friend help we came up with a good plan.

I can’t explain the amount anxiety and no expectations I was, my heart was pounding I was with my blood streaming all over my body.  Watch and see how emotional was the great encounter of my life

Here is the link to my youtube channel to see this great adventure and the greatest trip of my life.

The Highligh moments in pictures and all the joy and emotion felt is unforgettable.

Stick around for more blogging about this great moment of my life.

When One Thing Leads to Another

 

Things in life happen in parts but we spend so many time waiting for each of our single dreams come to fruition,  we narrow down a list and create a vision and exercise of achieving one by one, but the reality of the events of living life brings so much in one place, after all, we have one life, one title as human, and one name and were a unique person that unfortunately can’t achieve all, the reason why we spend so much time persisting in life achievements and fulfilling our cups. We want thing the way we want instead of letting things happen.

When I decide to make a decision for myself, but without the guarantees where I want to be or go, during the process, I might come to fail in and is ok because we don’t know if failing is part of it.

I spend so much time trying to understand the process of pain, discordance, and native circle circuit, and to understand this in a better way imagine one single simple thing in your life don’t go according to the plan, through you off completely sideline and literally anything else goes sidelines too. You schedule a hair appointment, but your car break, and automatically all your day goes south, plans canceled, errands canceled, sometimes plans get adjusted.

Looking to the Disasters on TV – Disasters such as Harvey or Irma is a simple example that everything goes out of function, flood make you loose all, and even the ability for you to work, be on time, eat a meal because is no electricity, or drive to work because is no fuel, and no lights in the streets to make your safely drive,  literally all going to a surprising position that you never intend or chose to be. The name of such unbalanced is pure chaos.

That is what everyone and one thing leads to another.

One bad thing will lead to another bad thing. One good thing will lead to another good thing. and sometimes a bad thing might lead you to good things.

I came to acknowledge and observance of Harvey in Houston that compassion is what fixes it all.  Without compassion, nothing would be in the direction of recovery. Some have learned, some have gained, some have experience, and that changed a lot in us. Nothing would have moved forward without compassion and assistance of the people.

I am the reason I got this job at Facebook and if wasn’t for me accepting this job or getting hired, persisting even against the odds, I  would have never met my boyfriend, achieved few things in my life that I  had achieved on my own. I made decisions not looking forward success in the past because I didn’t know that one thing leads to another if you don’t see things leading to another in your life, stop and make better decisions, if life is a cycle of happenings, let’s make sure things lead one to another. Embrace even if the things are a challenge. I know my job leads me to the best of my surroundings but also brought few challenges and tough things. but is never tough when you see that is a chance for something new and better. When something is not right, doesn’t mean it does not fit for you is just because we need to pass that phase and accept, embrace and all will pass and better things will flourish.

Connection always is present with things, people, places, etc… Is true and is real.

That is the thought that makes me daily to not stress over things. I am desperately trying to find a job of my dreams, a career that will set me to growth but maybe where I am sitting now is going to lead me there, or to someone who will take me there, or to something that will lead me there. For that, I am staying where I am until something else leads me to do so.

My point is that behind the curtains of your life story, is something happening that involves your tomorrow, your future and your dreams.

It is a blessing! Slowly the revelations of this lead,  come to show you that if you were not meant for something you would be standing where you are now.

Blessings,

How to Comunicate without losing it?

 747ed0ce97966b5f3a5e2bdf121bb3d5--difficult-relationship-quotes-relationship-fighting-quotes
We communicate with peers or anyone around us daily basis and is essential to state clear question, to receive clear answers, but not always the word you place in question is same meaning in context, as instance compassion for you might be something totally different for me, while the dictionary might check one of our meanings or none. Curious to say, I spent years in coaching classes and coaching relationship communications back in 2007 when social media start to transfer voice to online versus face to face, while some have been placing silence in the real world others are not so worried about communication techniques or practicing placing a positive two-way road dialogue.
To carry a win win talking with your peers suggest this simple phrase when you do find the opportunity.

 What do you mean by_____________?
 
Then share your meanings and see what understand you can contribute to having positive and great communication in all scenarios of life. We tend to take this exercise as teaching us to accept one another as they believe and not make changes where is not such strong right or wrong.
Remember that we have two ears for one reason and one month. To listen more and speak less. As long as you will speak the essential only then you are doing great!
See you!
