Turning Dreams Into Reality. Cheers To New Beginnings!
Cheers to new beginnings and welcome to my blog! Here is where we begin, so grab yourself a coffee (or tea?), get comfy and hang around for a bit while I explain how I am turning my dreams into reality and making things happen!
The blogging world is opening the doors for me, and excuse me; I am coming in! It’s exciting, actually terrifying, a bit scary and overwhelming all mixed up with the certainty that I will get there one day at a time. I know it!
When was the last time you did something that scared you? Join me in this adventure into the unknown.

All Begins With An Idea
The idea of beginning a blog has been playing in the back of my mind for some time. There was always something else putting on the brakes. Life is too busy; I have no time; I work too much.
Blogging? I know nothing about that and will need to learn everything. Why am I trying to complicate things?
Then you wonder what has changed. For once, I stopped making excuses and took the plunge, headfirst! There is no turning back from here!
After I made the decision, the next thing you know, I was at my kitchen table, brainstorming a name for my site and turning my dreams into reality! Self-explanatory and straightforward Just Being Monica was born.
A considerable amount of work, love and dedication went into this project. In such a short time, I learned how to build a website and got it up and running. All through self-education.
It’s astonishing what we are capable of when having a clear goal in mind. I feel nothing can stop me now.
If there is anything you want to do, just go for it! Learn what is needed along the way and keep moving forward. One step at a time, you get there.
Early spring, I woke up one day and realized I was nowhere close to where I wanted to be. Disappointment hit me hard as I expect more from myself.
Even though I had advanced in my career, improved in the motherhood department, had a solid plan to handle my finances, and found smarter ways to live better. Something still didn’t feel quite right.
Obviously, just wishing and wanting was not doing much to transform my dreams into reality. I was getting nowhere.
In the last couple of years, I hadn’t done anything that moved the needle nor learned any new skills outside of my day job.
Even though I’m successful in my profession and have a great life, I want more! I am not settling for mediocre.
Without a doubt, things are about to get very uncomfortable around here as a major shift is already in motion so I can reach the next level. To the top, please!
Worrying about the bills piling up, the roof that needs to be replaced, and how I’m going to pay for my next vacation is not what I call living up to your potential. Besides, there is more to life, and I am about to find out.
Being financially independent and in control of my destiny is my ultimate goal. No more being at the mercy of circumstances, I’ll say what comes next. We always have a choice, and I am taking a chance NOW.
My daughter deserves a mom that is at the top of her game. I’m all she has so she better have the best!
Julia mirrors everything I do and say, and I won’t let her down. And if besides that, I can also improve my family’s standard of living during this process, why not?
I want to be unashamedly proud of myself and have the feeling of fulfillment that I DID it, and I CONQUERED it!!!
The goal is to share my struggles, victories, failures, and comebacks. And through my own experiences, connect with you as, in the end, we are all in this together.
Whatever life throws at me, I am ready for it. I am determined to shake things up, turn my dreams into reality, and follow my heart. Self-discipline, courage, persistence, focus, and hard work is what it takes. I mean business!
I hope to inspire and empower you to take a step towards your goal and get out of your comfort zone while we lift each other up. Are you in? Say YES!
Making It Happen!
Do you ever ask yourself where are you going to be a year from now? I have a clear action plan and know exactly where I’m heading. I will chase the opportunities to grow and learn and face my fears.
For now, all my other endeavours were put on hold until I can master this virtual world I’m exploring. I’m designing my destiny and putting the power back in my hands.
In addition, I am interested in personal development, fitness, healthy living, everything that is social media related, learning about investment and anything that will improve my life.
Join the 30 Days Challenge for a better life from Dean Graziosi (btw he is AWESOME!). EASY and FREE! I promise you won’t regret it.
It takes 5 minutes of your day and there you have a daily reminder to get moving.
Having a plan pointing in the direction you want to go, broken down into actionable steps and with a realistic timeline is essential to succeed. I feel confident and hopeful about what the future has in store for me.
Hard to contain myself, I’m beyond excited to be the brain behind this venture. The potential outcome is endless… THE SKY’S THE LIMIT. This is a big deal!
I’m MONICA, and this is what you can expect from me. I look forward to bringing positivity to your day while having fun sharing my trials. I invite YOU to follow me on this journey.
Let’s make this the best year yet!
Here’s to new beginnings and turning dreams into reality. Cheers!
