My birthday is a very special day for me…it is actually the one special day I have…everything seems perfect that day, I always get lots of calls, emails, cards, gifts…God even sends me some sunshine and blue sky on that day…(well, looking at this weather today I’m not sure if that’s going to happen, LOL)…last year then even played my fav cd on the restaurant by coincidence!
The sad thing is that I wanted to be in Paraguay for this day but I can’t so I know I’m going to have fun here too. I’m very fortunate I must say, I have great friends and family and you all my readers…It is fun how internet can make the world smaller and make people get in touch…that’s why I really love ORKUT its like a facebook but more used in Paraguay than here.
Elementary school friends just found me there after 20 years and we are catching up, even if our lives are so different now, the essence is always there and days like these I think what is really important in my life…the economy is collapsing even though i don’t want to give up my microwave I know i can adjust to any situation…in Paraguay you have to be able to do things that push you out of your comfort box, and that rather than being a bad thing is a good one, because it makes you give the right priority to things and put them behind to the people that really matter to you…there most of people live with the basics and get together and still have fun…
In this live if have learned that:
You don’t need to work alone, God always helps…just ask him!
In live Everything is about priorities
That you can happy happy with less
That things are voids of the soul
That if someone does not love you the way you want it doesn’t not mean that he/she doesn’t love you his /her own way.
That home is where your heart is
That on the long run you remember the good times more than the bad moments
That you can choose to be happy even if the situation makes you miserable (that’s a big exercise, but eventually you will lead your emotions and not vice versa)
I’m not addicted to adrenaline or to heights
You can love many places without loving one less than the other
There are more than one true depending of your point of view
Never judge people even if you not agree with them, tolerance means listen and respect and is the wheel of the world
Be kind and respectful with everybody and everywhere
Don’t lose it, count to 10, breath and wake away, never say things when you are angry that you wouldn’t say without being mad
That sometimes I’m mad a someone doesn’t mean I love him/her less or that I care less
I have rain and winters but still manage to have a pretty decent time (you choose to be mad or not)
Laziness sucks but sometimes I just need to rest for few minutes…it makes me more creative.
I have learned that the past is a reference for a better future
That your kids don’t belong to you, you are their guide but in life they are to succeed by their own
It is easy to follow your passion ones you find out what it is
I also have learned that friend s are siblings you pick
That a wasted minute is a wasted minute that will never come back
I have learned to carpe diem =) to laugh even if you took the wrong bus and have to walk 1 mile in snow because your own mistake (happened to me last week)
Admit your faults…makes you human.
You are not perfect, no body is…that’s good to know
Thanks all of you of the joys you bring with your comments, questions and experiences
Happy birthday to Munita!!! nothing left to say!
