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.

Know it. Prove it. Hurry up!


The Know it. Prove it. challenge is a month-long Microsoft Virtual Academy challenge to accelerate your skills on the tech topic of your choice.

I have signed up for the Web development learning challenge but having 8 topics to choose I’m tempted to join at least one more. I know I wouldn’t have time to complete more than one and I would be disappointed. Let’s see how it goes and maybe, just maybe if I can I will join another on the way.

You can choose from these categories: Cloud Development, Game Development, Mobile Development, Web Development, Hybrid Cloud, Identity & Access Management, Office 365 and SharePoint.

As the description says each module takes around one hour to complete and it is designed having in mind a module a day.

Hurry up because the challenge starts in 5 days. Good luck!

Moments to Remember

I stay alone in my room and weep

If I just knew how

I would write you the greatest poem in the world.

 I want to say what my heart has to say

Three years has passed and I still miss you.

Everyday I ask myself

If you could see me would you be proud

Would you tell me that I’m doing great, like you used to

Would you tell me that I could be better?

I cherish every memory that I can remember

But the void that you left gives me so much pain

I can barely breathe.

I try to remember

Your smile so soft

Your look so deep

Your word so kind.

I see you in the beauty of spring

I see you everyday in the little things.

Please forgive me for all these tears I’ve cried.

I promise you

I will always be your little girl

You are always in my heart.


Moments to remember  – My loving father

That’s Amore


 I’ts official: I’m in LOVE.

Oh, I love the season changes. I was late for work and when I saw the snowdrop in the garden my heart melted and had to stop and take a picture. I admit that Spring is in my heart and I’m enjoying every bit of it. The temperature changes has affected my heart and I see joy and energy in everything. I allow myself to sing out loud, of course when no one can hear me because I sound terrible and I know it.

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you that my relationship with spring hasn’t been always this smooth. There may have passed three to four years since I felt this kind of joy. I don’t know why but when everything was blooming I felt that I was staying behind and it felt a little uneasy to go with the flow.

Anyway me and my Spring, we have left the past behind and we are enjoying every bit that we can. I just wish that I could spend more time outside instead of being in the office, but I will try to spend my free time outside if the weather continues to be like this. You’re welcome to join us 🙂

That’s Amore

It’s OK to be SMART

I was just surfing the internet reading different blogs and I absolutely fell in love with a science blog “It’s Okay to be SMART”. The site is very good one and I ran into these perfect cutting boards so I couldn’t resist sharing them.



golden ratio

There are some more but these three are my favorites. I would love to have at least one of them, and they seem to me they would be very good present for someone. You can find them here and there is also a link on where to buy them. Although I don’t think that I can afford to buy them because of the location where I live. The idea of science in the kitchen is awesome and I enjoy just looking at them.

Happy  cooking 🙂 🙂

What if you had a second chance with the one that got away?

second chance


What if you had a second chance with the one that got away? Would you take it? I would say yes! I believe it is worth it just one more try. If the destiny is kind enough to save for you that chance, you should try to make things right.

What if you don’t succeed? The chances are that if it didn’t succeed the first time it wont succeed the second one. But just maybe, it will. So if you don’t succeed, at least you won’t regret the chance that you didn’t take. The weight of the regret for the chances that you didn’t take is enormous if you compare it to the regret of the  failure to make everything right the second time.

Everyone deserves it. I remember when I didn’t believe in second chances.  If the destiny takes something away from you, it wasn’t meant to be. But I have changed my mind. It’s not easy to do it, believe me. But I have found that it is worth it. And you should try it.

Everything has it’s limit. Be careful though because if the one that got away waste your second chance don’t you ever give it twice.

Pursue your happiness because you are worth it. Good luck with your second chance and be safe in your journey of life.

Zahir! Love, Loss and Obsession


I often ask myself when is that very moment when love turns into obsession?! Is it when you realize that your life does not have a meaning without your loved one? Or is it when you feel that you couldn’t love more than you are loving right now because you have already given everything? Maybe neither, maybe both . Maybe love itself is some kind of obsession.

If you feel trapped in your own skin, if you know you feel it but you cannot help it believe me you are not alone. That feeling of possession is only an illusion. If you want to live peacefully, and if you want to let love find it’s way you will have to let it go, and surrender yourself to true love. Don’t destroy the little light of faith in yourself. Love yourself first, let the love of your life have the chance to show you love. You may loose or you may win. But choose to appreciate what you have and you will enjoy the sweetness of the true love.

Safety First


I want to begin this post asking you a question: How often do you get out of your comfort zone? How often do you challenge yourself to do something that feels to you unsafe just because you don’t have the confidence that it takes to do it?

Begin small. You don’t have to do something completely different from what you are used to. Try small, and try adding everyday something more. Keep those actions as a small victories that allow you to grow little by little.

It’s easier said than done. It sounds simple but it is not easy. You may fail sometimes. You may win sometimes. But the essence of this is that you are active and ready for the challenges of your life.

Tomorrow is late. How many times you have decided to do something, and then said that you will begin to do it tomorrow? Don’t do that. If you decide to do it, you have to do it  now today because tomorrows never end.

Good luck, and may you be safe 🙂
