This weekend was my husbands B'day! We had a very pleasent time with our family and friends!
The only thing that makes me feel a little upset is nobody knows how to take good pictures!!! Anyway, here is a little part of the weekend:
Saturday night, at Devassa!
And this is at home, having lunch with our lovely family.
I hope he had enjoyed these moments, because all of us care a lot about his happiness!
Happy Birthday, sweetie!
If like D.I.Y. recipes, check A Beautiful Mess this next 12 days. I think it's gonna be great!
And sorry I'm not here this last days. I'm working really hard because is the end of the year and we have lots of obligations to attend in the office. But I'm preparing some surprises for the next year!!
I have some news to share. I decided to change the focus of this blog a little bit. From now, it’ll be just a space where I keep some ideas, inspirations and collect everything I think is cute!
My goals and my list will be transfer for a new home, I new blog idea I’m starting. I really don’t know why I can’t keep my jobs, dreams and collections in the same space, but I feel so much comfortable separating all of it…
Yesterday, I had this very good and honest talk with my husband about not feeling like I’m not doing what I want, not moving on. And both of us realized things aren’t happening because we’re doing nothing to make our dreams come true. Sometimes, we even can see clearly our goals.
And it’s because I want to do a real effort to get there, I’m moving this list and my personal points of view about life to a blog in my first language, Portuguese, named Pra Mudar de Assunto.

I told you once I’m a financial manager and it was a very emotional profession. You feel you did your best when you get good interests in some operation, but you feel terribly bad when the market changes and you loose someone else’s money. I do it for my family business and if I had to do it for other companies, I think I wouldn’t be able to continue this job. Is so stressful! I do it with love because I care by my sisters and parents; otherwise I’d rather live with more limitations of money, but more time and less preoccupation.
The reason I’m telling you this is because of a post I found on Elsies’ blog. The main subject was money and uncertainty about the future as an indie artist. Well, I’d like to say money insecurity is not an exclusive feeling of the indie artists. The entire world is experiencing a crisis that US started and Chine is giving more gas with all this cambial battle. So, if you have doubts if your activity is not the best for your dreams and want to switch or give up, please, don’t do it! It’s difficult for everyone, not only for you and your dreamy job! It is an economic phenomenon and it’s better to pass through it by doing what you love then doing something whit gives you more money but not peace.
Yesterday I bought the cutest little dress I have ever seen. It was red with black polka dots. I was so happy to buy something (after all this month of no shop), especially something so beautiful for a baby girl! So, I thought how can we resist not transforming little girls in dolls? Oh my! Maybe that’s why my friends never let me spend much time with their kiddos.
Yes... I'll cut the easier item of my list.
I finally did a piercing (in fact two...), and I feel glad about it. Oh! And it hurts a little, but not too much!
It has a month now, but I couldn't find a good picture to share.
It feels good to do things only for myself. I'm still committed with my list. It makes me rethink my goals all the time and how I need to be and do what my soul is asking me right now.
Well, I really want to share more picutures with you about this adventure, so I'll try to be more disciplined about it!
I’m realizing so many things these last days. It feels like I’m discovering a thousand new nuances of life. I’d like to share with you some of my enlightenments:
1-We must value silence. How many times you regretted about speaking too much? I do it constantly. God’s Word says that the words coming out your mouth is just what is on your heart. So, if you complain a lot, gossip or say pejorative things about the ones around you, you’re more concerned about others life then your own happiness. My tip: think a lot about yourself and people around you before saying something, don’t hurt people with your words, but bless them with wisdom and humor.
2-Share the love. This one is difficult, because most of days we’re involved in work, college and other activities that don’t remind us to be tender. When you say something good, do something nice or try to make people feel special, it seems you receive it back and day becomes so much better.
3-Don’t think the problem is always another person. Generally, we have this bad habit: to think the unpleasant situations in our day are someone else’s onus. So, if you don’t get promoted, is because that girl stole your opportunity, if you have an argument with your husband, is because he doesn’t listen to you, and if you’re tired is because you have so much to do and so little help… But the true is we have tremendous power to change these situations. You can chose to stay positive, work better, have more patience with your husband and try to understand him, do something better with your time. It’s no one’s fault when it doesn’t work, just happens sometimes.
4-Ignore the bad feelings. Recently, I felt very betrayed by somebody a really never thought was capable to do so. And she did in different ways: using my ideas to make money and promote herself, challenging me. My first reaction was disappointment, then rage. But I finally realized that the only way I could get over it was ignoring these feelings and keep walking. I believe in God’s Justice and know that people who steal someone else’s work can’t be successful. But it’s not jus it. I think we live better if we stay positive, smile more and try to care only about the things that really matters (and, for me, this is my family and friends).
5-Don’t try to have everything. You won’t get it! Sometimes, we just want to buy new stuff because is the new trend or get married because all of our friends did and seem to be happy… Well, everyone has a particular way to find happiness, if you’re seeking yours using the wrong parameter, maybe you’ll find frustration. So, don’t try to have everything, try to keep only what you really want and make you happy!
I'm doing lots of works for my little MBA course... I'm tired, crazy, and time is running out before I finish the job.
Here, at work, things are a bit overwheming too... That's why I couldn't be here with you guys!
But I wish you all a good weekend and see you soon!
