You got to take risks.
I took a big risk this year and I ended up marrying and living in another country and learning a new language.
It isn’t all rainbow and butterflies even thou there a lot of butterflies and rain in the tropical place where now I call home Ubatuba Brasil.
Sometimes we see images of people living and traveling to some amazing beautiful tropical places. And we assume it’s an easy life and everything looks pretty for them.
But there are always dark and difficult time that we all go through that you have to overcome to get to beach or place where you feel alive and thankful.
Sometimes beach towns are not as sophisticated as metropolis the humidity and the salt water destroy everything faster from food to metal.
To end the year 2021.
I realize this year that I always been happy. When I have been alone when I have been sad I always knew to enjoy it because it was not going to last forever. And thank God and my parents my culture and my experience for that mentality.
I remember walking in my home town of El Paso specifically Horizon City and I was walking alone and thinking man I felt sad spending a lot of time alone
My work is remote that means limited to no interactions with your colleagues
I was single with dates and some of friends where looking more like snakes.
I just remember saying to myself enjoy the time that you are alone because there is going to be a time where you are going to be surrounded by good friends and family.
You are going to be bitching and thinking about that lonely walk in the desert how peaceful it is to be by yourself sometimes.
I here to remind you,
You can do whatever you want.
I have a new friend that I married and she always around me hahah.
Things change appreciate and if you are having a bad time just remembered that it’s not forever everything is temporary
Keep your head high and don’t be embarrassed to ask someone out on date.
And if you like him or her go in for a kiss don’t hesitate at least you will find out if they wanted to kiss you too J
The most important thing is that you are happy!
Be grateful for what you have even it’s a walk by yourself in your hometown.
Things are changing.
Things I learned in 2021:
1. be ready can adapt to any environment
2. choose right people

Thank you my one only guest Daniel English professor and translator what great conversation.
We are truly blessed. Every day we get better I promise just to hold of and have faith.
Every day you get to wake up, its one day that you get to appreciate the little things.
I have been reading the book the artist way by Julia Cameron and a lot of itself care.
Take care of yourself do something just for you and don’t feel guilty enjoying your pleasures.
Do what makes you happy.
To have peace and love you need discipline and responsibility.
Leaving my country gave a greater sense of the appreciation for my family, food, culture, friends. The sense of appreciation has grown intensely because you really don’t know if you ever going to see t or eat some of your favorite flavors
Enjoy your day.
Take it day by day
One thing I need to-do is organize the things that I want to get accomplished. The thing that is so big that its intimidating is writing a book. How I’m going to finish that son of bitch? The answer is writing each morning. Discipline
I was talking to my aunt telling her that sometimes I would say things to myself
Like that I would compare myself to my friends start bitching about how they have this and that and I don’t.
How I am ever going to compete with them
At the end of the day no one is stopping me from writing a book, blog twice a week, drawing, painting, and sharing online to the world now. I was just feeling sorry for myself.
I like painting with markers because it let goes of being perfect just completed the painting something is going to come out.
Peace and Love
Discipline and Responsibility
