Happy New Year!

It was a very blessed year: I could meet new friends (around the globo), visit Santa Claus in Finland, study Aromatherapy together with my beloved friends in Texas, have coffee at Starbucks with very special people, buy a new car, get an Ipad, spend quality time with my nieces, consolidate old friendships (that was very, very important), run with my husband, play with Kika, be proud of some students, be hopeful about others, pray for all of them, drink and eat new flavours, read some books and guess what...I could finally give Elaine the photos she asked me about her grandmother!
Of course there were somethings that went wrong, but who are counting?
For 2011 the plans are getting more and more experiences to make life really meaningful.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR EVERYBODY! 2011 FULL OF HEALTH AND FRIENDS! (if you have that, all the rest come easily!)
See you in 2011...

2011 - oportunamente oportuno!

2011 já está quase aí! E independente do que dizem as mais diversas previsões para o ano novo, uma coisa é certa - todo início sempre é uma excelente OPORTUNIDADE para refazer algo ou começar algo. Oportunidade, na maioria das vezes, é tudo aquilo que precisamos para "tocar a vida em frente". E quando essa oportunidade vem acompanhada de esperança, aí ninguém segura! E a história já provou várias vezes o quanto essa dobradinha é efetiva! De fato, é a única coisa que precisamos. Infelizmente, de vez em quando, nós não percebemos ou deixamos as oportunidades escaparem. Mas sempre aparecem outras em outros momentos oportunos. Temos apenas que prestar um pouquinho mais de atenção.
Por isso eu desejo que em 2011 vocês tenham muitas oportunidades, tenham oportunidades suficientes não só para realizarem aquilo que desejam, mas também para auxiliar outras pessoas a fazerem mesmo, oferendo a elas oportunidades e compartilhando o sucesso obtido.

Are you happy?

2010 is getting to the end and 2011 is just around the corner!
We, human beings, have just one "mission" to accomplish - to be absolutely happy!
If things didn't work out so well in 2010, don't worry - u are going to have a new chance in 2011! Only u know what it takes for u to be happy - and I do hope that u, me and everybody else can find out about it as soon as possible. And when you learn what makes u happy, may you share that with other people. The recipe of being happy is different for each one, but one thing is absolutely sure: your example can inspire others and bring hope.

It may be a crazy life, but it's our life!


At the end of the year, we can conclude one phase and get ready for the new period that is about to come...
I'm really very happy because a lot of you have already chosen a new path in your lives. May your way be made of success and great opportunities. Sometimes all that can become a little bit crazy...but that the way it is! If it happens, remember alvin and Hobbes cartoon of our last test...we must do the better we can with the knowledge we have! It may be a crazy life, but it's unique, it's yours - to the best you can - always!
I also would like to thank all of you for inviting me to be in charge of conducting the graduation cerimony. It's a great honor! Thank you very much!
See you at the prom!
