Feliz Dia del Amor y la Amistad!!

 

Although in Spain, Saint Valentine is only related to romantic love, being this boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, lovers, one night stands and similar.. I rather keep the special meaning the day has in some countries in Latin America.

There, there is no restriction as long as it is love ( feeling, emotion..) and there are so many kinds and sorts.. that everybody is to celebrate!!

Love is an universal feeling and You love also your friends, your family, your pet, your dancing class mates, your work colleagues, the people that reads your blog posts – Ups! Did I say that out loud?- (blush).. Well, the thing is that I find the concept much more attractive.. and also, I hate to see single friends (normally females:( ) sad and sorry at the sight of all those hearts and red stuff hanging on shopping malls and flower shops. It is like a night they just want to pass fast to go back to normal life and not feel excluded from the party.

So, even if I am being a bit late, I want to send you all the love my heart can hold and wish you you enjoyed this ( and every) special day of love and friendship the Latin way.

Peace and Love!

Christmas Decor…Your feedback!

belenHi all,

What do you set up in your house for Christmas?

Do you go all the way and the house looks like a Shopping mall in Dubai? (Honestly you have to see them!). Or do you stay humble and just do some little embellishments? ( some balls and candles)

Maybe you just don’t bother to décor, as there is already so much decoration around, you feel there is no need.

The fact of having children in the house is a factor to consider, as we all want them to feel the Christmas spirit and it is a great activity to share within the family.

I want to share this poll with all of you and remember your opinion is very important to me and to all the rest of the community. Feel free to add all your decorations, it will give us ideas!!

Have fun!!

Xmas tree

Hi all!

I just wanted to drop a line as we are almost there at the most festive season of the year. I love Christmas.. well, I love any festivity that means celebration and/or time off work, call it bank holiday, day off, birthday, anniversary or holidays.

Time is the most precious thing in life and therefore, to have the time to enjoy with your friends and family is just such a blessing. And there it goes my wish for all of you, readers of this blog, curious passing by, and friends of friends..

May all of you enjoy the spirit, the happiness, the company of your loved ones, the time and the abundance of this Christmas season, and may it last for all of you during the entire 2013.

Keep your sparkle up and your smile on.. because soon, it is Christmas time!

Merry Christmas to you all!

Will Smith speaks up!

I came across this video of Will Smith. He is not only a great actor and a great inspiration. He is terribly passionate about what he believes in and that makes it contagious and him a great communicator. His message is being heard and I hope you enjoy it.

Some of you might know about his other side, the inspirational one. For some of you, it might be something new.

He has been studying religions and the need of us, humans to believe in something somehow.  Will Smith has gone a long way, learn his share and it is so great to have some insights of what he has experienced and studied.

Everything he says is common sense, but.. Common sense is the less common of all the senses at the end of the day.

If you are looking for some good movie to boost your mood, go for The Pursuit of Happiness.

These are some of his thoughts…

Being realistic is the fastest way to be mediocre.

Talent you have naturally, Skills you develop with hours, hours and more hours of work. That is why I work, work, work and work.

Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you can not do something.

If you are not doing someone else’s life better, you are wasting your time.

I can create whatever I want to create.

There is no reason to have a Plan B, if it is going to distract you from Plan A.

He, who says he can, and he, who says he can’t.. both of them are right.

Enjoy!!!
