Be you. Do you.

As I get older I realize how important it is not to take life so seriously. Have fun at work, have fun with family, have fun with friends. Have fun while doing life.

Have fun, be authentic and enjoy every minute of the present. Let’s enjoy the now and worry about the later, well, later.  We get caught with work and social life that sometimes we forget to LIVE.

BE YOU.DO YOU.

What do you do on weekends?

Mom, wife & Boss Life Podcast

In the new podcast episode of “Mom,Wife & Boss Life” I talk about what people prioritize in the weekends. I was asked if my I get mad because my husband sometimes has to work on Holidays or weekends and that’s what inspired this topic.

I discuss that my family doesn’t start living life on the weekends and work doesn’t stop at 5pm on Friday’s. I believe the hustle never stops especially if you are running your own business.

Finding joy

yolanda villa-June 28, 2018-Life-with-Yolie-30

Since it’s summer break I have been spending A LOT of time with my kids, and one thing I have noticed about them is the joy they get for the small things.   When did we lose that as adults? My daughter wakes up to sunny skies and she’s ecstatic for the fun day she is going to have, my son gets super happy if our pet bird Sunny makes a noise that resembles a “hello”.  Why is that? Why is it that as adults we want big wins or absolutely nothing to go wrong for us to say we had a good day?

When my family and I go out for ice cream, I’m that mom that goes and gets a ton of napkins and starts hassling her kids about getting dirty BEFORE they get their cones.

Last week my husband and I took them for some ice cream and I decided to just enjoy the moment. To live in the present and not worry about the dirty clothes I would have to wash later. To find joy in the fact that all four of us were in a little ice cream shop in the bay area. Happy, healthy, and full of love. Messy faces and all.

That day I decided to redefine my joy.

Mom life and work life

life with yolie podcast.pngHappy… (Checks calendar) Thursday!! Is it just me or is this year going super fast? Took the kids to the park because I needed to answer emails & entertain them. That only worked for 5 minutes! This is how it went:

“Mom look at me” “Mom can I get water?” “Mom I fell down” “Mom D pushed me”.
I promised them ice cream if they could just play & not bother me UNLESS they had broken bones! That just started a whole new conversation.
‘What about a bloody nose?” ” Why would I have a broken bones?” “What about if I fall and have scratches and it’s bleeding and it hurts but I don’t know if it’s broken?”

Me the whole time “Patience. Breathe. These are precious kids”

RANT OVER! How is your day going?

Great ideas

Life with Yolie-blog

Do you ever have great ideas at inconvenient times? I was supposed to be in bed two hours ago but I’m so overwhelmed by the response I received by fellow female entrepreneurs that I’m too excited to lay in bed.

I knew my new podcast series would be a great idea and now that its official and we are ready to launch in a few weeks, I just can’t sleep! I also think my creativity is the most bright when the house is quiet and I have a moment to gather my thoughts.

My days can be a whirlwind with business calls, handling the kids, employee issues and then coming home and cooking and cleaning. Okay, who am I lying to? I outsource the cleaning, but I do a light sweep and dust!
