Oh happy day! How are you doing? The land here is filled with wildflowers. I have a quick heads-up about my awesome magical birthday:

**If you’re new to my book, check out this article in The Huffington Post. Or listen to the first few chapters here and here. I also have a recent radio interview here and here. (Skip the first two minutes to get to the conversation.)**

In the video below I:
1. Take you on a walk through the field above on my favorite trail by the Pacific Ocean;
2. Lean against a gorgeous tree and almost fall down, and offer my trademark snort;
3. And talk about our different roles in life and how to create the best environment to do what’s most important to you.
In that video, I promised you a nature video and that can be viewed here and below:
In other very exciting news, I finished the rough cut of my documentary from my stay at Drop Out on Orcas writer’s retreat! If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to write a book alone in the woods without cell or Internet, this film takes you through some very intimate moments of one of the most transformative experiences of my life. It even includes exciting preview scenes from the sequel to The Amazing Adventures of Selma Calderon. Here’s the trailer:
If you want to be the first to see the rough cut, sign up for my newsletter at RebeccaVillarreal.com which will be coming soon! (I’ll only send out about 4-6 newsletters per year.)
In my video at the top of this post, I mentioned the short time management TED talk. It’s called “How to Gain Control of Your Free Time”. You can view it here:
Also, if you’re looking for a refresh on your approach to planning, I’m really enjoying the Panda Planner, which you can find here. You can start the planner at any point in the year. There’s a discount code you can use PANDAFAM at checkout for 10% off. (I don’t receive anything for sharing this–I just believe in the product!) You can learn more about the making of the planner (after its founder had a traumatic brain injury, he really went back to basics) in his welcome video.
Thank you for cheering me on and supporting me in so many ways. Remember your magic, every day. Cucalacas!
Have a great rest of your day!
What a joy to walk with you through the wildflowers, and to receive your insight and love (and a snort for good measure! 😉 ). And I LOVED your book two video … somehow I never saw it in November when you posted it! Can’t wait for the Drop Out documentary!!! Big love to you, my sister … xoxo
Oh my friend and sister writer! Thank you for watching and for writing to me. I’m doing the samba right now under the full moon right now and it’s glorious! Wish you were with me. xoxo
Oh, how delightful that sounds! And eight days from your birthday—your favorite number counting down to our shared 18. Many celebrations await us, including my making good on a promise. 🙂 Love you bunches!!
