Meet Natalie from Laguna Beach, CA.
The one word that best describes Natalie's life today is "Better." She chose this word because she feels things are looking up in her life.
If Natalie could change one thing in the world, she would "Want everyone to speak two languages." The way she is going about making this change is to learn how to speak Spanish.
One year from today, Natalie would like to be sitting in a cafe in the rain in San Francisco.
If Natlie's life were a movie, it would be about enjoying the cafe life and embracing every moment of every day. The title of her movie would be called "I Don't Know."
I met Natalie and her friend Tatum as she was posing for pictures on the beach at Brooks St. Natalie is a natural in front of the camera, she looks so relaxed and comfortable.
She reminded me of my son who enjoys the cafe life and lives for the moment. We laughed about the difference between people like me who are planners and people like Natalie who are spontaneous and flexible.
I find it interesting that Natalie's disdain for planning is contrasted with her very specific plan to be sitting in a cafe in the rain in San Francisco a year from now. I think we can learn from each other and strike a balance between a good a plan and living for the moment.
Thanks Nicole for being in the moment and being spontaneous and allowing me to share your story.
