Dreams: the 12 steps

Beginning thirties it seems that you are too old to rediscover yourself, having to take care of your toddler, having full time job, taking care of “everything else”. Still when you read this inspiring blog post by favorite writer Paulo Coelho, everything seems possible. I like it how all the steps are very simple to follow. Read the post or here are the highlights:

1. Tell yourself the truth

2. Start slowly, but start

3. Stop slowly, but stop

4. Discover your small talents

5.Begin to choose

6.Don’t base your decisions on financial gain

7. Follow your intuition

8. Don’t be afraid to change your mind

9. Learn how to rest

10. Let things show you a happier path

11. Read the signs

12. Finally, take risks!

Good luck to you all!

Coin flipping


When you have to make a decisions and really have looked at all the facts but still do not know what path to take…flip a coin. It is not that the coin will decide for you. But that moment when you wait for the result of the coin listen to  your heart your heart will tell you what it hopes the result will be. You will know what is the path that you will take. Listen to your heart and you will really chose the path of your dreams!

Life and death


Seeing in person the very thin line between life and death is frightening. It is very good that no one knows when will the cold death come at your door. And if you have opportunity to meet and talk with people that were in that thin line you will see how they value every day and every opportunity to share that day with the ones that they love.

Value every second of the life and be whoever you want because tomorrow may be late. Tell your loved ones that you love them. Tell them often.

Cherish the life and live happily.

There is no void

There is no void for you to fill.

I used to think that I need you so desperately,

Like my lungs need the air

Like the desert needs the rain.

I realized now that there is no one that I will ever need that way.

I have no void for you to fill, there is no void inside my heart, inside my soul.

If there comes a time that I will feel I have a void to fill,

You won’t be the one that I will need.

That battle I should fight myself.

You are and always will be addition to my wholeness

Only that way we can be happy.

Please remember that if I chose you, I didn’t do it to fill my void

I chose you to fulfill my wholeness, so we can celebrate the life together.

I promise myself

I promise myself by Christian D. Larson

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
