Right Here, Right now


GULP Coffee shop, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
Since I can remember my mind is never there, in the moment; is always somewhere else, tomorrow, yesterday but never in the present moment.
Sometimes I think a lot about the future that sometimes I forget about the present and living the present moment is the most important thing.
The only thing we have is the present, no one knows for sure that we will be here tomorrow but somehow we think we will.
The phrase: Live everyday like the last one. So true, yet difficult to put in practice.
We forget about the beauty of simplicity, like enjoying our first cup of coffee in the morning without rushing. I believe that when you live and enjoy the `little things` in life, we are happier. It’s not about money, waiting to have the right job, the right relationship, the right body etc...always waiting. Never enjoying what we have right now! We focus in what we don't have, instead of focusing in what we have now and making the most of it.

  1. I love the new blog layout Victoria :) Looks like you're having a blast on holiday! And I agree, like you i think and worry too much about the future and wallow over my past that I forget to just sit and enjoy the present. The little things like rain on my window or having a lie in.

  4. instead of thinking of the future like you, i spend a lot of time thinking of the past, which is not very healthy at times. it is very difficult to put that popular phrase it in practice, but i try every day by doing the little things that make my day. like my morning ritual and the early evening walks.

    hope you're still enjoying your vacation.

  5. I really love the boots and outfit. Also, I tend to over think about the future that I fail to enjoy the things that are happening now. I am with you about celebrating the little things. It's what matter most. Really.

    Enjoy your vacation in Mexico. =)

  8. I tend to forget about this too, so thank you for the reminder! Instead of always looking at the future, you gotta enjoy the present right? xx

  9. lovely outfit and the text is so true! but sometimes it's easier to say than to actually do that, living in the present. some things have to be done for the future. e.g. i can't tell my teachers i haven't done my homework cause "yolo and i don't live for the future" haha. but sometimes, yeah, sometimes it would be better to just focus on the little, beautiful things in life :-)

  12. hi victoria! i definitely agree with your words, the only problem i have is that is hard to follow it... i am the queen of complaining and being unhappy, and wishing things which I don't have, and wanting to be in Brazil when I am in Germany and the opposite when I am in Brazil... so this carpe diem thing is nice, though I must say it's hard to do what I know is the best.
    the pictures look awesome, you need to keep us updated! I'm kidding! enjoy your time as much as u can! love the hair style!

  14. Totalmente de acuerdo. Cuando éramos pequeños también soñábamos con un futuro pero disfrutábamos del presente, con ilusión, admirando sus pequeños detalles, viviendo cada momento como si fuera el primero (realmente lo era). Ahora nos preguntamos si éste es el camino correcto, cual deberíamos seguir, ... estrés y preocupaciones rellenan horas vacías en nuestro pensamiento.
    Ojalá fuera más fácil vivir realmente el momento.
    Me encantan tus outfits (pero eso ya no es nuevo)
    un beso enorme

  19. you are right and it is so important to do, although it's not easy, at least for me to live in that right here, right now moment. i like your hair, & the colorful background in your photos. hope you're having fun victoria!

  20. I really agree with this & feel the same myself. It's definitely something I need to make more of an effort to put into practice myself, but it's so much easier to say than to do. I'm always worrying about the future, or wishing certain things would hurry up & happen. I love what you said about enjoying the your first cup of coffee in the morning, it is so true & I can't remember the last time I actually did just sit down & REALLY enjoy it... I always seem to be too busy rushing about to sit down for long... I'm going to try & do that tomorrow, it really is the little things!
    I love how simple your outfit is here & your hair looks great like this, the little red ribbon woven through & red lips is the perfect touch! I also love how bright & colourful all of the buildings are in your photos, I can see exactly where you get your love of colour & colour clashing from! :)
    Hope you are enjoying your holiday!
