I just stared reading Lori Harders book “A Tribe called Bliss” and it’s a must read for females! I will give you guys the full review once I finish it but I can already tell it’s a good one by what I have already read.

Marriage

Marriage is all about choices..

Let me explain, my husband and I have been spending less time together because of his work schedule and since kids are out of school, I’m the primary caretaker. So life can sometimes be a struggle for us, for example, I would like to spend more time outside of “work mode” but I try my best not to nag him about it because the business is a priority for both us.

So when we do spend time together I try to make it of quality vs quantity. That’s sometimes hard to do because, as any other couple, we  have disagreements.

That’s where choices come in, I can try and argue my point  or I can let it go and enjoy the moment. This used to be hard for me, I HAD to win an argument. Now, I just let it go. I’am human and sometimes will snap at him but I will quickly realize my tone of voice and apologize and let it go.

Yes, ladies, I will apologize even if I’m not in the wrong!!! WHY WOULD I DO THAT, RIGHT? Well, at the end of the day I want him to enjoy his downtime. He has to deal with so much at work, I don’t want him distracted with our fights. Don’t get confused,  I do pick my battles! Marriage, like life is all about choices.

As I write this, I’m drinking a glass of Stella Rose while he watches Casino for the 100th time. I would like to go to furniture shopping but I know he hates it and I know I’ll be annoyed at his attitude, so I rather go by myself and enjoy this moment with him. He does it for me too, he’s not much of a reader so when we go to Barnes and Nobles and stay there for a few hours, I know his smile is forced but I appreciate him just being there.

Choices ladies…CHOICES!

 

 

 

Social media is our life filter

yolanda villa podcast

I have come to the conclusion that social media IS our life filter.

I always talk about how I wish I had a filter on every day so I don’t have to do my makeup. But I guess that’s what social media is. Showing people the good and keeping the ugly to ourselves. Sometimes we forget that behind a social media post there IS a real person!
The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. So don’t worry if your grass isn’t green right now. Keep working your land!!

Just thought I’d share that!

Happy Friday. Enjoy your day and hug your loved ones!

I forgot to feed my human

yolanda villa podcast

Today was a long day in the office.. more mental than anything. But everything is under control which is good.

On the other hand.. I forgot to feed my daughter!! I can’t believe it!

🙊 Let me explain! I had finished cooking lunch when I picked her up from school but she decided to have a small snack and wait for her brother to get home, so they could eat together.

🤦My son got home and served himself because I was on a business call.. then an email came in, then another call… You all know the drill.
🤷 4 hours later I ask my daughter if she ate and she says “yes, no wait.. I haven’t!” .

Moral of the story: It’s okay to laugh at the end of a crazy day. You got this mompreneur!

YESS!!!! You go Yolie!

the unfiltered wife-2Yes, that’s me patting myself on the back. I started the behind the scenes work to start the new series of my podcast.  Drum roll please!!! Say hello to my new baby

“THE UNFILTERED WIFE”

A new look on how we view female entrepreneurs. This is the real deal. The Unfiltered Wife podcast!

This new series was my first target goal BUT I needed to change the direction of my career and put myself out there first. I needed to put myself in an uncomfortable situation so I could get comfortable.

In a few days I will be letting you guys in on who I will be having as guests. I’m super excited and seriously can’t wait for you guys to listen to it!
